Actually horrific traffic today, making me miss my originally planned train and making travelling to my interview 100% more stressful than it needed to be. I gave myself half an hour extra time and somehow still managed to miss the fucking thing!

British Gas have taken another £100 off me, when I was supposed to be getting money back. What the fuck. ANGRY PHONE CALLS WILL BE MADE. Cunts.

Basically when I called up before the guy straight up lied to me about how much we owed, so the money they took out today we do owe. I'm really fucking worried my ex housemates aren't going to give me the money they owe now.

Lunch hour and I'm not allowed to eat as I'm having a US scan this afternoon.

Everything I can smell is 1) food and 2) smells gorgeous.

Argh :lol:

I've found out I can't go to Bloodstock or go on a sailing holiday with my family this year because I've been told I only have one days holiday left. :(
I don't care so much about BOA as I'd never been 100% set on it anyway but my dad looked so upset and disappointed about the sailing. He's already booked the boat and is telling me to just quit my job and stuff.
I have no idea what to do. :( I'm half tempted to just take it off anyway and deal with the consequences, or beg my boss for unpaid leave. I don't really know what I can and can't get away with though.

If I were in your position, I'd not go on the holiday. Bosses can be quite harsh with stuff like that. And since jobs aren't easy to come by nowadays, I'd try to keep it.


It's a shit situation though :(
If I like it, It's probably awful.

Clutch, Kamelot and The Ocean for BOA 2014 pls!

How many days you going for? If it's short you could probs get away with pulling a 'oops I ate all the dodgy chinese takeaway prawns' sickie. I know I would. :lol: I'm sure your dad would understand if you chose not to go, it could potentially be your job on the line and as Jim said, there aren't many around at the moment.

Just had a bit of a heated argument with an environmental officer who came round. He was a proper condescending and sickening. Saying 'oooh you had a party, well that's great for you.... not so great for your neighbours *sarcastic face*, Naughty naughty, Well I'm here to make sure you don't do it again! And if not I might pop round, barge in your house and give you a veeery big fine, which you probably don't want'

I just told him to GTFO. Fucking hate people like that. Do your job fine, don't be a cunt about it.

Friday, Monday and today I have been asked to print off some labels for
boxing up some cartons we're printing at work.
3 times I have been told what's going in 'em and how many in the box.

3 times I have failed to be told how many the total job is so I know how
many labels to print.

So I just printed one label on a sheet of 14 and took it to the person that
asked for them.
"Oh I forgot to tell you how many to do again didn't I?"

Yes. Yes you did! Maybe you'll remember next time :lol:




Probably not.
