I was never really cut out for work. I've always been a malingerer, content to sit, staring out of the window while my colleagues grafted, earned their pay rises, promotions and so forth.

As often happens, my happy little life was turned upside down by a woman. I got caught canoodling with a female colleague and was moved to a new team where I (supposedly) learned new, marketable skills.

Before long my situation worsened markedly. I found myself living in North America, by this time married to my fellow canoodler. My company marketed me as a subject matter expert, when in fact I was just the one-eyed man in the land of the blind. It was an awful time to be a lazy ne'er-do-well.

Eventually, unable to cope with the Americans' growing suspicions about my snake oil, I escaped to Scotland, still striving to stay one step ahead of the growing crowd who could see I was blagging it. Life took me to Germany, Italy, Germany again, then Hungary, Ireland, Hungary again; the roar of the chasing crowd growing ever louder. Somehow I had to escape...to find a quiet spot with a window, and an internet connection.

Finally I found such a thing, back in Britain. They pay me, they sometimes - but not very often - ask for me to do work, but mostly I do what I like. This has been my goal for so many years, I should be happy. So why aren't I?

Sitting here with nothing to do is actually a rubbish existence.

Hence now I am thinking about stopping work. But what does one do instead? Having spent my entire adult life avoiding work I am suddenly fearful of escaping this world, of winning the war, of laying down my laptop, being paraded through the streets of Rome, a crown of laurel atop my head.

Ah well. Hopefully this will sit on the forum unread. Having to reply to people would feel awfully like hard work.

Sometimes at work my train of thought completely derails. I'll stare into space for a while and then say "F&$% me, twenty more years of this before I can retire". I carry on though because it pays me enough to do the things that make me happy when I'm not working. If you're getting paid for doing very little then you've won the war already, you just need to find something to do the rest of the time that makes you happy.

A familiar comment from folks who still read newspapers owned by tax dodging billionaires is "Thay don't want to work", referring to the unemployed and long term sick, because Rupert Murdoch doesn't want us thinking too hard about the Panama Papers, he wants us to blame homeless and less fortunate for societies woes. Guess what, ballbag? I don't want to work either. If I could afford not too then I'd be out of here.

You first have to be a retired and former NFL star, that is the only requirement. Their marketing department will take care of the rest and you won't have to do a thing
