Since I finished my A-Levels I've been working full time at McDonalds ( don't laugh, its not that bad). Thing is I think its turning me into a sex crazed nut. I seem to fancy half the men who work there even though I'd never normally go for them and then some of the customers are just plain distracting. Can't concentrate on anything in or out of work and am currently debating whether or not it would be that bad to go after a certain guy (he's the manager, is this a bad career move?!?!). Don't really wanna be labelled as the fast food hussy. My friend reckons its just cabin fever and I've been holed up in there so long that its taking over my life and better sense. Never really believed in the whole cabin fever thing though cause I never went through this at school and I was there for 7 years. Any thoughts on how to cure my 'cabin fever'. Will not accept quitting as a solution, nor will I accept throwing myself on the the manager in the middle of the Saturday rush ( tempting as that may be ) as a solution.

Here's where my AS maths skills actually become useful:

YOU + YOUR FRIENDS + EXCESSIVE AMOUNTS OF ALCOHOL = CURED!!!

Alternatively you will get very drunk and throw yourself at your manager in a fit of Vodka fueled passion.............whichever works for you.

Alas, I'd probably miss the manager and end up in the deep fat fryer. Don't think he'd find that very endearing.

I'd be happy just working.

I spent 5 hours today with loads of copies of my CV going round the shops in town and came home after hearing 30 million "No jobs" and giving out the CVs. I have nothing to show for it except sore feet!

I really need a job and I'm getting that I'll take anything - except selling myself!

I have to save £430 before September and so far I have £100 (from birthday and gran!)

Have you got any more because that site isn't loading up?

Thanks for the help.

Making money is simple, you just need to know what you abilities you have that can be exploited for material gain. In my case I am able to produce a vast quantity of pirated software / CD's / DVD's etc.... at a low cost. This means that I (could) make a very good profit from the sale of them.

I would like to point out that the above statement is not an admission of anything on my part. Furthermore I would like to condemn copyright theft in all its forms.

Read the below thingy.
In your opinion, would they accept a 16 year old?

It sound like they are appealing to pretty much all age groups to me. I would give them a ring and ask if they would consider 16 year old applicants. If it is fundraising that you will be doing then why should you have to be 18 or 21??

If you cant contact the company directly then try getting in touch with the webmaster hosting the site. He should have a way of contacting them.

Did the site work then? I don't see why you couldn't try for it, as there's nothing in the discription about ages, so you may as well give it a shot.

Yeah the site work.

As for the job, the dragon - opps I mean my mother has said I'm not allowed to apply. So bang goes the £250-£450 a month idea.

I'm still searching though. I'm not giving up.

If it wasn't for the dragon, I wouldn't need to save £300!

Have you tried asking local restaurants if they need a waitress etc., or you could alsways do a paper round (admittedly not the best job, what with the early start, bad pay, and all). Good luck,
Phil

Like I said earlier, I look and ask everywhere today.

There is nothing in my area on that site (except lap dancing and drug trials!) so I'm going to do a similar site search on google.

Also, I think its not a good idea to reply to this message because we have totally taken it away from the "Cabin Fever" topic. Sorry Toyosi about this.

If I hear/see anything or need more help, I'll start a new topic.

Thanks again
