For me, after price, it's the speciality.

Rates. Jun 6, 2012

The demand of highly qualified work at silly rates will most certainly exclude me.

Price Jun 6, 2012

Far more than anything else. I have perhaps unreasonable expectations about eating twice a day.

Cat tool Jun 6, 2012

And we all know which one it is. The most complicated, expensive and widespread one, which most agencies and similar grasping intermediaries demand.

Unreasonable rates and deadlines. Jun 6, 2012

As others have stated more often than anything else.

Used to be the CAT tool, rates and deadline Jun 6, 2012

Now, it is just the rates and deadline.

Unlike DLyons, I do not mind eating only once a day, but this mortal coil requires sleep at regular intervals, showering, the need to interact with other real-world human beings, and the freedom to deal with the occasional domestic crisis (partner breaking leg fits into this category).

My apartment is also very fussy about being kept clean and tidy, and someone has to wash and iron my clothes.
