Now golfing pays better than work
I recently had a long conversation with a friend of mine who lost his job. He was in a reasonably good job and after a little bit of overtime was earning a gross salary of €35,000 per year.
So I asked him the obvious question of how he was going to cope now with four children to feed and, I have to be honest, the answer startled me.
He was actually a lot better off and now in a position to go out golfing every day while his children are at school.
