<font color='#000080'>I used to run my own business before joining the cops. I don't envy any of you guys. Sure, working for yourself is the only way to make real money but you have to put so much in - never a day off.

There's no doubt that you deserve everything that you've got, and you're welcome to it.

<font color='#000080'>I work for someone else hence still poor, or is this due to taking up diving this year
 Anyway I've always fancied working for myself but haven't found something to do yet.

<font color='#000080'>My parents run a tiny village shop (the type where the sweets are in jars on a shelf behind the counter and the most expensive thing she sells is cigarettes).

They get one day off a year - xmas day.  Every other day they work - normally from 6am to 6pm.  They even had to work the millenium as they had the option not to, but the only newspaper supplier would then not supply to them anymore, forcing them to work or face ruin.
My dad is 64, 65 in April, my mum is 59, 60 in june and both look forward to retirement.  

I tell you, unless i was earning big money i would never take on the shop.

I am the Head of Finance and Facilities for a small telemarketing agency - yes those people that offer you insurance, mobile phone content, and internet services.

The pay is ok but the hours are flexible (David J - if you are reading this you are a fantastic boss to work with) so I have a tendancy to leave early to go diving without feeling guilty or receiving too much grief
