And they were comfortable with a window at every seat.

That looks nice.

This is pretty much the new train that started turning up this week.

Plenty of space for a trolley service. But that will probably be taken up with loads of people and luggage. :lol:

:lol: Undoubtedly. Had some numpty on the train to Nottingham the other week, with their massive suitcase where your feet go. I had to ask them to stop moving it and pushing it against the tiny bit of space where my left foot was.

The heavy garage door slammed itself shut onto my foot. Hurts like hell now. Better not have broken anything.

Hurt my heel travelling. Had to make it worse in order to get to the next two places, then walk around those places to not make it a waste of money going there. Now it seems really damaged :/

Ironic that seats are getting smaller as the levels of obesity is supposed to be getting bigger :eyes:

Whatever happened to Ryanair's plans to do away with seats altogether and have a standing/strap system?

I think they were told in no uncertain terms to fuck that idea out the window.

TG: In doing overtime today and one of the grads is sitting watching YouTube and colouring in his colouring book. Must be nice getting double time to do FA (I'm aware of the hypocrisy of me being on here but at least I'm doing work dammit!)

The two people that I need to confirm my annual leave for Bloodstock are off (one on a long holiday, the other on compassionate leave) and one of the colleagues left in the office is trying to block me from taking the time off because she is on holiday that weekend and wants to make sure I am there to cover her workload. This shouldn't a problem because the deadline for her workload that week is Thursday (her holiday starts Wednesday so I would only need to cover 2 days), it should all be done by then and I would be free to travel over to BOA in the afternoon then have Friday and Monday off but she is being over-cautious and wants to make sure I am stuck in the office all day Thursday and Friday just in case anything is needed . I'm not going to sit here all day on Friday, missing 2 days of Bloodstock when there is nothing that I actually need to be doing to cover her, doing my own work to pass the time. Least of all when the person who is pushing against my annual leave is my exact equal in terms of company hierarchy.
I used to have a link to a social networking site here but these days you all probably already know who I am.

So she can't force you then, right? Sounds like she's being unreasonable tbh.

Fuck this weather. We invented Spain and Greece for this weather, you like it you can fuck off there. Car recorded 36. Thats 10 degrees too high for England. I blame brexit for this.
