Where the sun don’t shine

Posted in The Job - General by 200

At work we have a little lottery running each week. No, it’s not about who will come up with another shite idea for the department it’s actually a  real money lottery based on the national lottery where the winner can gain the princely sum of a couple of tens of quid, or if it’s a rollover, 2 or 3 times that amount. It doesn’t make much of a dent in the budget especially as the winner is expetced to buy the rest of the shift cakes, donuts or chocolates out of the winnings.

Occasionally, we’ll do the Euromillions & spend the day before fantasising about all turning up for work on Monday, marching into the superintedents office & telling him to shove his job up his arse before dumping the uniforms on his desk & rushing down to the nearest Aston Martin garage.

So there is a great deal of envy about a group of Hungarian police officers who won their national lottery this week. The group of 15 officers  from the town of Budaors scooped around £10,000,000 between them & promptly resigned on the spot. The prize was the 6th largest lottery prize in Hungarian history.

Understandibly, this has caused some consternation among local police chiefs who are drafting in officers from other areas until new ones can be recruited & trained.

Jealous? You bet – good on them!

    Aaaah, nothing like the fun of fantasising about the lottery, eh? When my day comes, I plan to go into work, sit down and log on as normal, give it about five minutes, then go “f*** it”, put my coat on and leave. All without a word of explanation. Just to see what they do …
