Hell is six hours on a plastic sofa watching other people working.

That was my day. The client booked me for a specific task. This didn't happen. Rather than send me home unpaid, and annoy the agency, they stuck me in the lounge with no 3g, wifi or aircon in the vague hope that "somebody might not show". I ran out of change, phone battery and even farts. Eventually they let me go, and I had to cycle 12 miles in a random direction before I felt human again. Tsk.

I bet farts on a plastic sofa were spectacular though...

There are indeed an infinite nember of Hells Kitty. We could have swapped, although you might got your DCs back in a bit of a state.

Yanbu, this happened to me for two weeks at start of a new contract, a week in I asked if could take a day off whilst they sorted out the work....and was told no that would look unprofessional....

Contractor, maybe you should have asked if you could work from home instead for that day...

Can you report them for unsuitable sofa possession. Maybe engineer a works outing to IKEA to acquire a cheap but eminently suitable replacement.

Bastards. Plastic sofa?!
