GO FOR IT! Don't worry about upsetting the others by taking the position, you're not there to appease your colleagues, you're there because you want to do the job right and earn your wage, and get on in life.

Lucky escape though eh? I can beat your record of one day though. When I was lad I got an RG125, insured it, donned my new Frank Thomas gear, set off, and a mere 2 miles from home, I fell off on a corner and broke my leg! DOH!
