I'm the youngest in my team and also the only non-British one. I think this means I can get away with being slightly odd at times, hehe

I'm the youngest in my team by between a decade and 25 years.

I kinda had this childhood held idea of "Grown ups" for a long time, but working with these guys made me realise no one actually grows up. They just get more responsibilities.

Spot on!

When I first started I expected people to behave like professional adults. I was disappointed quite a few times.

You've finally grown up when you realise every adult out there is fumbling along and blagging it just as much as you are.

It's been a comforting and distressing realisation.

I mean, it's nice to know that I'm doing fine, but distressing because I thought eventually people figured shit out.

Where I work there are people who are >18 but still in a school-like mindset.

The more a person knows, the more they know that they know little.

Bought a BOA ticket from a mate and it still hasn't turned up. Was posted on Thursday 1st class recorded so it should've been here yesterday. Still got 2 more days to appear but i'm not hopeful. Really don't need this with deposits and other moving costs :(

He should still have the slip he got when he posted it. That has a number you can put onto the Royal Mail website and check it's status.

Depending on the service bought, though, it might just have something that says if it's been delivered yet or not.

It just says it's being processed through the network. I'm all too aware of the perils of tracking parcels as it used to be part of my old job. Pretty annoyed with myself for not specifying Special Delivery instead of recorded :(

I had a master CD sent recorded once, didn't turn up. Forked for Special Delivery. Ever since, if there's something that absolutely must get somewhere and on time, I'll pick the latter.
