Draft ~ to be expanded.

It was 2001.
I was made redundant. 2001.
The interview was for a comp technician that had to travel all over UK maintaining software at retail outlets all over UK.
It transpired at the interview that the software – and the company – originated in Germany and that there was hostility between the German and UK subsidiary.
I don’t know for certain whether the UK subsidiary still exists but I doubt it.
My suggestion at interview that I should do German with the main company didn’t go down at all well. Real programmers are willing to learn new programming languages at the drop of a hat. You learn languages to understand. FM I should be thought of the day.
