Do you wrap them around your phone/iPod when you're done? I used to do that but since I've stopped I've had the same pair of creative headphones for like 2 years. It really does work!

Nope, the cable is too long so I kind of wore it as a belt. Unfortunately it caught on a handle on a coach seat and the left speaker is fucked. Had them for nearly 2 years. Very sad :(

My good earphones did that, and my headphones need the jack replacing, but I'm not 100% sure how to do it as they have a braided fibre cable. So I'm using crappy earphones for the time being.

Yeah! I had the headphones around my neck, as normal, and passed the overly long cable along my jeans and into my right pocket. Fitted perfectly :)

Started doing an online application form and all was going well until I got to a page of those "getting to know you" questions and I have no idea what to put and it's making me feel like a rubbish human being.

Yeah, I wish they'd just let you submit your CV and get me in an interview. I hate those "why do you want to work for us?" questions... So you can pay me you wank stain!

My grumbling is the line next to the BOA logo at the top of my page.

A job offer is a mutual thing - it's not just what you can offer the company in terms of skills, it's what they can offer you, too. They're not stupid, they don't imagine you working for them until you retire in four or five decades' time, they want to know how you envisage your time with them - how will five years with them set you up for your long-term career plans? They want to know if they can help you, too.

This one wants to know when I last "bothered" to help someone (their company slogan is "We can be bothered" which is terrible IMO) and they clearly want me to sound like Mother Theresa. Or not. I DON'T EVEN KNOW ANY MORE.
