In a wee bit of a dilemma. Bit of an issue at work without going into too much detail but if I stay at my current grade, I am most likely going to be dropped a grade or worse, lose my job because I have a completely irreparable department, or I step down on Monday.



So yeah, sucks to be me right now. Ill be busted down to checkouts and I can practice at being artificial and friendly for a couple of months until something better materialises.

Unless you have an almost certainty at another job with similar or better pay, take the risk on the head and just go with the checkouts bump, as it'll be secure and there's probably actually not even a subtle hint of a bump upwards.
Who the hell reads anything in sigs these days, unless it's an animated gif?

Yeah, some money coming in is better than none. I don't know, alot of shit has happened but now its getting me into the thinking that, although I can blame everyone else, I don't think I'm that good at my job either.

what department are you in now? checkouts isnt too bad, theres a few jobs they can stick you in that require less fake interest in customers lives than main checkouts :yes: still not gonna be as good as what you're doing now i imagine, but more bearable than sitting on a till all day asking people the same questions.

Despite not getting drunk last night I feel shit and tired today.
Also, I'm writing a letter to Heinz. It’s the second time now I’ve opened a can and found what looks like a mass of offal in one of their beef and vegetable soups…. A lump of rubbery tubing, I’m guessing it’s beef heart? No thanks :hurl:

It's not those pasta tubes, is it? But that sounds grim. I don't trust red meat in soups.

Ah man, I always used to get a spot when I was about to go out when I was younger. Now it tends to be that I cut myself shaving when I'm going out.

I've had keyboard and mouse trouble too past week. My wireless ones finally
gave up on me last week so gone back to old skool wired ones.
Nice to have fully functioning peripherals for my PC.

That the fuck man? Take a step back and look at what you just wrote. No wonder she's an ex.

Thank you Kaahl. You are once again a welcome dose of humanity around here.

WPMOT: Booked a table for me and my friend last night and everything was fine. Get a call about an hour ago saying they'd had a booking for 25 people and needed to move times. Fair enough. Then the times the woman said weren't available either! She said she'd sort something out and call me back and she bloody hasn't yet :x
