Ironically, I've just been in there today. What was your problem with CEX? Was it that you didn't get the amount of money that you were expecting from the trade-in?

Good ole facebook ! Please bring back the funny videos or stupid pictures of peoples plates at a restaurant. I think i actually miss those as it just seems to be people liking (mostly Labour) political stuff at the mo. I wont change my mind by you liking 5 labour pictures a day !

If you want to make a change hand out leaflets or join rallies. Liking 50 political pictures/posts a day wont change peoples views !

New boss in work
"You guys are now on shorter breaks"
"You will just have to cope with staff shortages" (only a third of staff are in work)

Staff moral is low as theres no incentive to cover other peoples work and no "Thanks for doing that" for doing so just "Why have you stopped"

Also
People that try to make a event all about them and there ego and throw wobblers when things on there end go tits up, then go on Facebook afterwards to call the event "Rubbish" and censored off everybody else

yep, this.

Also my parents are being cringeworthy as hell on facebook, I have done everything short of block them and still they think its funny to make remarks about how we should be having kids, in front of as large an audience as possible.

its not funny, they just look like idiots and make me look the same.

You should have kids. (just kidding)...

I fully agree about the amount of crappy annoying vote Labour rubbish all over facebook and plonkers liking post after post. What it does do is show who is a Labour supporter on my FB friends list! Some of them are blatantly obvious - others are like WTF! :lol:

If you have not already just stick them on unfollow, that's what I do with people when I don't really want to see stuf from them. Saves all the hassle of unfriending them and once a month I just like a couple of posts.

Scummy work colleagues. Those that are so jealous of others success. I was promoted a couple of years back yet there is always that one person that thinks they deserve it or just want a title to be important.

Well this one person whose brother is a little but more successful than him in life decided to apply for a role he has zero experience in. Then because the odds of him getting the role were zero, decides to put in a grievance that im intolerable to work with. Long story short is i get zero chance to defend my name, they are moving him to the role he applied for to keep the peace wherby he will take the same perks and wages i do with zero experience.
I worked hard for my role, he is just some clown that has just come off 16weeks sick with anxiety ffs, and garnered a title he hasnt earnt. I hope the guys he will be working with see through him and treat him the way he deserves.

I just hope karma is around the corner and it bites him right in the asss.

Unfortunately...

The harder you work and the better job you do of something, the more you will just get taken the p*ss out of and used/abused. It's more often the utter c***s, corrupt types and those willing to throw other people under a bus that will get places. Most higher-ups I have had to work for show these types of traits and all the lazy f***s who do the bare minimum at work are the ones who get away with murder while those doing the job properly are immediately pulled up as soon as they open their mouth to speak to a colleague or look like they aren't carrying everybody else as per usual.

A little bit of a bitter rant there. I do apologise...
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.
