    Last night, I was talking to a guy at a pub who said he had just got home for the weekend from work. His permanent address is in the local area, but he works in London as a motor vehicle refinisher. His travel costs of traveling on the train to London plus the cost of staying in a hotel during the weekdays are all paid for by his place of work.

    Being a motor vehicle refinisher is my dream job and even if I had to do what this guy currently does by only being at home during weekends and working and staying in London during weekdays with all expenses paid for by someone other than myself, I wouldn't mind - at least it would give me the perfect excuse to be away from my family! :biggrin:
