Damn it damn it damn it :x :x :x

Just placed my maximum bid on the flat, other person has offered exactly the same offer.
Vendor is away on hoilday so I either have to wait for him to come back and decide who to pick or wait for the other bidder to get bored and look else where. I am stubborn and will not give up :x

Damn it. :(

Plus the beatle problem in my current flat is getting worse.
Ahhhhh :x

I need hug / a house.
Roll on the weekend!!

Tie it back, wear a suit and arrive 10 mins early carrying a broadsheet newspaper you can read whilst waiting (financial times is too obvious though unless the job involves finance).

TBH though when I was having trouble getting a job I often wondered whether it was my hair, but it turns out my problem was not asking questions at the interview when they ask if you have any questions. Turns out thats the most important part of the interview. So perhaps it is something else you're doing.

I've had the kind of day where if I was the type and carried more weight in my arms I'd go and break a few faces down the pub.

Unless you're three foot tall, half a stone isn't that much.

All good advice! Although I once had an interview from hell in which none of that did me any good. (my hair is down to my arse by the way)

The first 10-15 minutes went brilliantly, but then the interviewer sat back and said:

"You seem a nice bloke and you've impressed me so far, but what I don't understand is why you've come in here wearing a suit and tie yet you also have long hair."

I responded with the obvious point that quite clearly no candidate in their right mind would turn up for such an interview in anything less than a suit and that I doubted I'd have gotten this far into the interview wearing jeans and a t-shirt. But that wasn't good enough, as his response was simply:

"All good and well, but that's not really you. I'll bet you don't wear a suit at home. Infact, what do you do in your spare time. Do you drink? Do you smoke? Do you live the rock and roll lifestyle? Our customers are very respectable, I wouldn't be happy with you representing our company."

I countered it all very respectably and took it very well in my opinion, but I have scarcely come accross such a complete cockstain in my entire life! As has been said previously, if that's the attitude of an organisation, why would you want to work there in the first place?
