Yeh there is good and bad points of a strong currency look at us in the UK, we can go wherever we like but all industry is closing down, are last car manufacturer is closing because they can't operate efficiently.

800 GBP means nothing to us because we don't know how much you make...

if you make 1600 than that is 50% = holy shit
if you make 8,000 than that is 10% = no big deal

but by all means I am not asking you to reveal that Information I have no right and the only need I have is to know the percentage which is not a big deal at all...

anyway never mind I'll shut up

well it's 20 % of up to £20,000
over that 40%

to be fair i did get a masive bonus that month and did get it back, coz i don't earn that much a year but i feel very sorry for the buggers that pay that all the time, and i am soon to be one of them.

an if your intrested i was on £17,000 a year, on a placement from uni which i recon is quite good well as long as you don't spend it in this country.

And as many have said i recon as soon as i have money i will make the most of the exchange rate and come visit you lot over the pond.

so the people that make 19,999 really make morer thean the people that make 20,001 that makes sense...
