So, I have an interview today for a job that I do not want. But apparently it is a job that I have pretty much already got - Brook Street apparently feeling they can parachute me into any old role at this point. So ... yay. I win at life.

It's actually back at Kingston Borough Council, where I worked for about a week earlier this year, and it's general administration, and it wouldn't be so bad, except that it's in Public Housing Repair and I have to answer the phones.

The biggest issue here is that I do not like the phone ruling me. I like to rule the phones, yo. I want the numbers, I want to do the dialling, I want to speak to people on my terms. What I do not want to do is pick up the phone and have someone ranting at me about how their water pipes aren't working, because my natural inclination is to say, "Oh God, that's awful, and I bet the council haven't done a thing about it, the bastards." And they talk so quickly, and they frequently have really bad English, and they get so angry, and their problem is always more important than everybody else's. And I'm sorry they have to live in public housing; it sucks being poor, it really does and I'm sorry, but I don't want to do this!
