    okay I want some money. I'm bored with shops like tescos but MIGHT work there because there's one where about 10 of my friends work there. but probably not.

    clothes shops are way harder to get a job in, and they're all in town

    where else can I get a job? some ppl I know do telesales but I don't think I want to spend that long simply annoying people, and you're under a lot of pressure to get leads as well.

    ... please help thx

    - Record Shop (Rounders Records!) / Bookshop (does waterstones do the trick?)

    -Data Entry - pays well, but is boring.

    - Handing out leaflets (Depending on how much you like staring at Office all day).

    Scan the papers...and er...phone the companies up. Data Entry is usually nasty hours though, you may need to wave bye bye to your nightlife for a bit.

    Just one bit of advice. When going for a part-time of full-time job, don't get anything in an office, it's loser work. The people there may consider themselves better than manual workers and whatever, but they are the ones rotting behind desks wasting their lives.

    I know this was kind of off tpoic, but i had to say it as i am in an exceptionally good mood.

    Yeah I'm getting a visa electron card soon (applied yesterday) and I'm going to start selling on e-bay, computer parts and stuff

    the hard part is making a profit over the postage fees AND the e-bay fees, as well as paypal fees.

    But on top of this I want a proper job.. thx chats for the suggestion

    But that's not really earning... just exchanging what you already have for what you would buy with the money.

    Yeah! Importing Class A drugs isn't easy at all.

    Seriously though, have you tried temping agencies - you get a lot of data entry work through them.
