Millie, I had the same demonic thought!! If  spoke Welsh I would be sorely tempted, but as Admin so rightly says, they'd turn up en masse, seize us, get some expensive and none-too-smart vet to examine us, then remove us to a 'place of safety'. Then they'd shoot us.
Seriously, if I lived closer and spoke Welsh, I would love to go for the interview and write a post about what it was like...anyone here live in Wales? I'm going to look at the form, certainly, false name and all that. They don't give us long to apply do they?

On a more serious note, what exactly is the 'employee assistance programme'? This the one that drives ex-employees to suicide? I  just wondered.
