Just move somewhere immediately where jobs are more plentiful and pay more. It's easy.


:lol:

I'm trying to move but i'm trying to move to a place that every other fucker wants to move to because it's actually nice and stuff happens. If I wanted to move to somewhere with plentiful jobs, I would have taken the job in Burton and worked in the fascist state that took over part of my old company.

Went to start my new job today. 2 hours of induction tedium, got changed and sent off into the kitchen only to be told I'm off today. I'VE HAD SO MANY DAYS OFF! I JUST WANTED TO DO SOME WORK

Waited in all day for an engineer for the fridge and no-ones turned up. I've wasted so many days off thanks to this shitty kitchen company.

Another thing: since i had the day free I thought I'd sort Chris's room out a bit. He lives in staff accomodation with 2 old men who are both alchys. I cleared out the hallway which was an absolute tip, I managed to sort through all the manky bags and filled 6 bin bags full of cans, bottles and other rubbish. I drove it all to the tip and recycled it.

Now this alchy man has been home for about 20 minutes and there's EIGHT bags of empty cans in the hallway. Like about 100 cans, at a guess. I spent ages earlier and got stagnant beer all over my hands for nothing!

I wonder if you'd be entitled to compensation for money lost due to time taken off work, if it was a time agreed between you and the kitchen company, as is the case for delivery companies
If it sounds good, listen to it

This rather prestiguous place has two old alcoholics on the staff? What happened to keeping up appearances and even kitchen staff needing foundation, etc?

No this is the staff accomodation of my boyfriend's work, I'm staying here till I move into my house share next week. The Grosvenor doesn't even provide staff accomodation.

To celebrate my quitting smoking for a month, I now have the worst chest infection I have ever had and am coughing up blood, wonderful. I was better off smoking!

When did selling on eBay become this unnecessarily complicated? There are loads of different policies with long numbers!

EDIT: I'm on the advanced listing page - the quick selling page retains a good level of user friendliness.
