Stealing a living

Post by Rumbletonk » Sat Jan 23, 2021 11:41 am

With no malice. Other than reality celebs who do you look at and think how have you become successful. Fair play that you have but how?

I’m not sure really it’s a tough one, like you say, take away the reality tv muppets, you really must have something about you to be successful... I’m sure once I think of one, plenty more will follow

Michael McIntyre.

Big fat inane grin on his napper, nodding his head furiously with an annoyingly high pitched voice....

The epitome of unfunny for me...

Quiet Saturday ?

These people are good at what they do. Whether we like what they do is the real issue.

The only occupation I'm aware of, that it is your job to ensure that they are doing their job correctly.

Clearly, they do have talent. Some like what they do, others don't. It's all very subjective.

Ffs its Philip 😭 effin 😭 Schofield total living stealer ...

He rode to fame on "Gordon the Gophers" shoulders as soon as he makes it, he dumps poor "Gordon" who now sits alone in his broom cupboard with a bottle of gin and surrounded by old VHS tapes of when he was famous...

As stated earlier, with 'entertainers' it's invariably going to be a matter of opinion, I wouldn't pay minimum wage to anyone, ever who's on during the prime time TV slots on a Saturday evening; there aren't many during the rest of the week either, but Saturday's the pits.

In the real world, I would have to cast a vote for Quantity Surveyors: There has never been a construction project yet which could not have been built without Quantity Surveyors, they're primarily employed to protect the interests of each party in a contract, because each party won't/don't/can't trust the other parties to deal fairly and honestly; however, the member of the other party's 'team' of whom you're most wary of underhanded dealing is their Quantity Surveyor. It's a self-sustaining profession - thanks for the pay checks! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Nailed on head, you might as well just advertise the jobs on indeed or in the job centre or just canvass on the street you would get a better calibre, we could talk about the 1s not stealing a living the thread might as well cease.

Any actor/actress who builds a career, then decides he/she’s good at summat else and forces that upon us.

Sheridan smith for example.... actress. Oh no, I’m a singer now. No you’re not love, you’re an actress... if we need another Jayne MacDonald, we’ll let you know.

He doesn’t qualify.... reality celebs are excluded otherwise that “thing” collins would be on everyone’s list.
