People from Northern Ireland are largely the reason you need to know how to defend yourself in west London :lol:


I genuinely think if someone in London tried to mug me I'd end up giving him tips to improve his technique. We invented scumbaggery, my advice would be worth more than money.

Mum has seemingly got back together with the guy who has been caught cheating on her at least twice. "but he promised he'll not do it again" yeah, ok.. plus he's an annoying fucker anyway.

I remember seeing a list of occupations that most encourage boozing via stress etc, retail was something like 4th.

Some genius at the office deciding the middle of a fucking thunderstorm was a good idea for a fire drill. Cunt.

Thing is it's not the job itself. It's two people in my place of work and I need to get rid of them.

Towards the end of his time in retail my mate was burning through about half a bottle of vodka per shift.

His liver is very happy he moved into admin work.

Could it possibly be than liking a drink is nothing to do with your occupation and just that, you know, you like a drink?

I didn't really drink much extra working in kitchens, but I drank a lot faster if I went out straight after a shift. Partly from stress/adrenaline, partly from having to catch up. From mopping the floor to getting changed to necking a full bottle of Bucky in the hotel taxi bus into town to being in the pub on my second pint usually took half an hour.

Hospitality people are big drinkers, I've seen some where it's gotten to a problem with them and the head chef of the place I was at last year killed himself after battling with some form of dependence. It's mostly fun and games though, mostly to deal with the crazy shifts we have to deal with sometimes and the adrenaline rush from that. Some people from work entered a fun run the other week and their team name was "we luv the bevvy", so I guess yeah.
