*Sigh Signed on with another agency today. Feel like I'm going mad. Called one of the agencies today about whether any work was becoming available and they said 'it's picking up but at the moment it's schools asking for people they've already had before. As soon as something becomes available they don't request someone they've already had I'll call you straight away.' Phone rings - 'Hi, there's a day's supply tomorrow at *such and such* school. Now I know you have to get public transport and it's quite far but I wanted to give you first choice because you called earlier.' I look at transport info and I can get there 2 hours after leaving the house, and about £20 later. Agency says they won't re-emburse me any of my travel costs. (I know some do and some don't) Agency says I don't have to do it and that they have someone else who can do it. I'm stumped and speechless and not sure what to do. I say, 'well I feel as though if I don't do it this is going to affect future work.' 'No, no.' He says. 'I just wanted to give you first choice but if you can't do it that's not going to have any effect on future work. We'll still call you. But I know it's far and if it's too difficult to get to.....' He knew how difficult it was to get to before he even rang. And how long it would take. (Dept. 640 and arrive at 825!) I have a feeling he knew I'd have to turn it down. What's the bet that next time they offer me something there's a problem there too? Or that I don't hear from them in a while? I'm peed off in a different way now than I was before - it's just such a head ****. Damned if you do and damned if you don't.
