Vincent Whittaker offers his services as an 'experienced' dragon slayer, willing to deal with any creature, small or large.

Former call centre worker Vincent, of Clermont Terrace in Preston Park, advertises his services on the website Gumtree.

He said he is hopeful the dragon slaying may turn into a full time career opportunity after receiving dozens of responses since the advert went online.

I love the bit about his developing this after losing his job at a call center.  The article's a hoot, and he sounds like a lot of fun!

Being annoyed by this means I'm a big no fun, doesn't it? :P

I was about to comment that he shouldn't quit his day job but he apparently lost it.

He should apply for a position in creative marketing.

10 years later and a grey withered man is still staring at a phone covered in cobwebs.

If what I type offends you, don't see it as an attack, but as my opinion.

Well, I had a google using the Dragon's Slayer name that was in the OP's linked article. https://twitter.com/Vince_Whittaker which lead me to here: https://therebedrago...-regular-people
The second link is a page of the responses the Dragon Slayer has already received.

I adore the British sense of humour! Haha! Now, if I was this guy, I wouldn't hire myself out to slay dragons... I'd hire myself out to slay driverless cars!

"From time to time there appear on the face of the earth men of rare and consummate excellence, who dazzle us by their virtue, and whose outstanding qualities shed a stupendous light. Like those extraordinary stars of whose origins we are ignorant, and of whose fate, once they have vanished, we know even less, such men have neither forebears nor descendants: they are the whole of their race."  -- Jean de la Bruyere 1645-1696.

Please note, Brighton pier is on the left, (out of the picture) along with the fish and chip shop and amusement arcade. This is one dragon Vincent has not slayed.

He seems to have a lot of imagination but as to go full-time, I hope for him he manage to make some money out of it. :)

Maybe he can slay dragons, but will he be able to handle the RSPCA?
