    Unusual no, just tended bar in an anarcho-communist club

    Did it have syndicalist tendencies, or was it above all that?

    A friend and I at college got a job being mystery shoppers for a well known chain of high street supermarkets. We would be asked to do various things on each trip, such as approach staff asking for obscure items that they did sell, but were hard to locate and things like buying annoying combinations at the deli counter and asking loads of questions at the checkouts. Then we had to score them all as soon as we got out of the store on a tablet. We visited about 50 stores over a few months as a summer thing. The pay wasn't bad, but it was desperately boring after a while. The worst aspect was memorising shortages on the shelves and noting them against a longish list of things you had to keep in your head.

    I guess it's not that unusual because I was doing a film degree at the time, but I shot videos freelance eg. weddings. (:

    Somewhat, yeah. More importantly it was also a pretty good underground gig venue.

    I'm a football stats reporter. Go to non-league football matches with my phone and tap buttons to report in real-time what's happening on the pitch. There's no experience or qualifications required, and it's all managed remotely (no office or workplace as such). After some training over Skype you're let loose. I'm enjoying the free match tickets and the pay isn't bad. I wouldn't mind being featured in The Telegraph, although I'm not sure how interesting my story would be....
    Hey Olly, this sounds really interesting!

    If you are interested in the Telegraph opp, could you send me your email address and/or contact telephone number in a PM please?
