Going back in time to the Australian Census…
Well tonight, sorry last night was Census night! I’m going to presume you know what that is?
I made a joke to Noelle tonight that I turned away a booty call to make filling in my Census form easier. But as I said that was a joke.
Ten years ago, when I had the best housemate ever, previously mentioned as ‘B’ (Fred’s been overworked).
At the time, I worked in Admin and B was a roadie. We both sat on the couch on Census night and handed the form back and forth taking our responsibility, seriously. It hard to justify and explain what you do for a living when you make people do work for the dole.
Answer phones, encourage client to attend, set up sponsors, host and negotiate with other Government agencies. Basically, make unemployed people do things they don’t want to.
How to describe what a roadie does? We learnt to simplify.
Lift heavy things!
