Last job I had I liked, till those in charge changed (from "keep your headphones hidden if the main boss is about" to "take them off now", they got faster machines in (really a two person on the back machine with just me on?) and the hours changed.

oh and the main language there changed from English to Polish. Nothing personal, but in a job where you have to talk/hand sign to each other it becomes hard.

Still looking the fug forward to hearing back from the SIA. They say it takes upto a month and if I already have work lined up.(Unlike with retail where theres 1000s that go for one job this work you need the card to work)
Yay

Today. I tided up some more.
When theres not much on the floor I feel the need for a carpet. I also have a load of boxes of stuff to sort at the end

And the parrot nearly flew out the window (she landed on the ledge, had a look about and I grabbed her. they are not even fully open)
Need to get some kind of mesh for the windows so I can have them open while she flys about

Try listening to the Metallica St Anger record, might be some lyrics or stories in there that you identify with. Had a mate who was having a bad year and this record really helped him out.

I would say to take it all out on something solid. While listening to something loud and headbangy
But that might reck your fists (or wall)

It works for me when im feeling angry

One of them was stood in the office this morning whining he wasn't able to go for a drink on Friday just gone because they had rang him up and asked him to do overtime! So I kicked off this morning, said my piece, embarrassed a few of the over time grabbing bastards and then at 10am got a call from the boss asking if I wanted overtime for the next 3 weeks.

Of course I said yes, apparently my little rant had caused the 'regulars' to pull out of overtime, nice. See how I get treated in the morning but I don't really give a damn...sod em....and breath...
Same here. The weekend events have been roped off all summer by the same people. £350 extra a month. Ridiculous.

When you really need a pee, proper can't wait. You're peeing and and suddenly the urge for a pooh comes. Can't stp the pee gotta keep it flowing. The only option is fart, but is it only fart? This is usually induced by the coo sum ton of alcohol. After peeing the med to check the pants and it's normally clean but you still med to wipe. Not fun. Why can't god let one pee in peace?

My Daughter has just told me there are only 3 things she's scared of:
- Killer Sharks
- Sharks
- and those sharks with 'two eyes'

Think there's a theme there! Love kids! :D

I was rummaging through a box of old lego bits today and I found a handle bar and flap for my speeder bike, I'm still one flap short of a full bike though :(
