    I've currently got a part time job at the local museum and it is soooooo boring. I have a five hour shift and all i do is stand on the corridor (in an old house) and answer questions from the public. Except the problem is nobody asks questions. You get one or two questions a day and that's it - everybody else walks past into the next room. We're not allowed to listen to music or read a book. I was just wondering how to make the five hours go quicker? (Standing next to the grandfather clock doesnt help either cause it just ticks and ticks)

    Could you offer to walk around, approach people, learn information etc?
    Getting more involved would do wonders if you needed to draw on these experiences later in life, and no use wasting time standing around. If it's an option ofc.

    That does sound boring. As above, find something to keep your brain ticking and not just the grandfather clock lol.

    You've got a whole museum...surely there's things to learn about by walking around and reading information? Also ask a colleague to give you tasks to make your day go quicker.**
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
