While I’m giving out about freelance journalism (above), it’s worth remembering just how much I loved life as a PAYE worker. From Mongrel Magazine in 2005, here are the Top 10 Most Annoying People I Work With…

    Couldn’t agree more with you about the misuse of “literally”. “It was literally raining cats and dogs” is one I heard recently. Was it? Was it really?

    Keep posting the stuff on the website by the way, I know this could be turning into Eoin Butler Appreciation Week (strangers having dreams about you and whatnot) but you just can’t find good journalism anywhere these days.

    Hey Eoin, I was thumbing through an old Mongrel (Nov ’07 I think, Ron Paul on the oover) and there was an article of yours called ‘Mongrel’s How to be a bad ass’. It was really good, if it’s not up already you should stick it up. Cheers.

  5. Eoin Says:

    Tell ya what Rob, I’ll have a look for it and if it’s any better than utterly mortifying, I’ll consider putting it up.

  6. Eoin Says:

    RE: Michael. He didn’t crack the whip per se. As a boss I’d have described him as “polite but fair”.

  7. Rosemary Says:

    Yes Lisa, do stop! As I said, my dream wasn’t “about” Eoin. He was just there. I am currently drafting a “mortifying blog posts I regret writing” story. It’s going to be, LITERALLY, mind-blowing.

    [...] per Rob’s request, this was a hastily conceived feature, written it in such a hurry that the last line, “Now [...]
