................... DOG SITTING DREAM 🐶 Thankfully our other flatmate for the weekend, Max, was Mr Independent. "Walk me, feed me, water me...and the occasional treat for good behaviour please", such a fab dog!
"It’s a bit like Uber in a way: people want a service that’s much cheaper than a black cab. I think it’s the same on TaskRabbit: people just want to keep the cost as low as they can. If you’re going to ask for expenses, its best brought up in the chats before the job starts. Recently I did a job in Sidcup, which is over an hour away. The job took two and half hours, and he wanted me to charge him for two. Because of travel expenses, I couldn’t do that. When you do stuff like that, you’re worried the person is going to give you a bad rating. Is he going to make up that I did the work slowly? And I don’t feel like I can dispute a bad rating. You are silenced with that; you have no voice."⠀ ⠀ What is 'gig economy' working really like and what are the opportunities and challenges for gig workers? This is part three in our series commissioned by the CIPD to study the lives of gig economy workers. It features Elle, an artist who uses TaskRabbit to source work.⠀ ⠀ Follow the link in the profile to see the full photo journal. #gigeconomy #futureofwork #research #photoessay #photojournal #ethnography #taskrabbit #cipd #workinglife #dogwalking #dogsitting #flatsitting #london
One of the reasons I decided to train in Edinburgh is because my friend Pat has allowed me to stay in her flat that is a short walk to the yoga studio. When Pat isn't travelling around Scotland in her caravan with her Westie Fiddean, she is planning when next she will see the Dalai Lama or hang out in India while she waits for a hip replacement. It's really awe inspiring being surrounded by all Pat's adventures and looking at photos like this one. Thanks Pat for letting me stay surrounded by your sheer awesomeness. Hope some of it rubs off! #awesome #flatsitting #edinburgh #legend #yogaoffthemat #starsparks
Wenn man für die in Costa Rica urlaubenden Nachbarn 3 Wochen die Blumen gießt und als Kaffeesüchtiger so ein wahnsinnig tolles Urlaubsmitbringsel bekommt 😍❤️ kann man die 1 Tasse ☕️ gar nicht schnell genug erwarten und das Grafikerherz freut sich über ein wunderschönes Packagedesign 😊 #coffee #costarica #madeincostarica #coffeeaddict #package #packagedesign #houssitting #neigbours #flatsitting #wohnungssitter #blumengießen
