Company/HR have paid to have a 'juice bar'* in the office today. I was kinda pissed off with that anyway (seeing as we can never secure funding for training, they tried to cut our overtime pay recently and a below inflation pay rise this year - in a company that makes around $50-60m profit per annum)

But the things that pushed me over the edge:

a) No orange juice
b) Trying to persuade me that some combination of mango, lemon grass, ginger and other hippy wankery was 'just as good'. It's not. ORANGE IS THE BEST JUICE. GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER WOMAN.
c) Noncing round the office spouting unscientific woo about detoxification and other alt-med bollocks.

Had to put Kataklysm on my iPod to stop me from smashing her stupid fucking hippy face in with my monitor.

Had to settle for apple in the end.

Getting annoyed by the fact that I don't have a job, so have no money coming in, only money going out due to being at Uni and my Student Loans don't cover my accommodation. Also because my Parent's don't lie and only just earn enough I don't even get any bursary of any kind. Out of a possible £800 in my first year I got £12, when I rang to check this was right I ended up pretty much telling them they were taking the piss.

Have got a job lined up for Christmas, but that's only for three weeks and I start that in a months time. I could really do with being less stressed out and worried now and like for the rest of the year :eyes:
I'm running 1000km (6 Marathons, 26 Half Marathons & 20 10ks) this year so sponsor me ya bastards!

I'm sick of hearing about this fucking royal wedding already. I'm sure there are far more interesting and worthwhile things to saturate the news with than the private lives of the upper classes.

We should get a day off for it, providing they don't con us by having it on a bank holiday.

Me too. My only opinion on the matter: fucking finally. There, that's it.

They cut BBCsomethingorother to BBC News 24 for a bit this morning, but it wasn't annoying because, frankly, what else is on in the mornings? It was on before Dickinson's Real Deal, just to give you an idea of the caliber of programmes that were missed D:

Wills and Kate, I assume.

I want to marry Harry, though. That'd kick ass.

also I am pissed off today as apparently work had redone the rotas, meaning I was supposed to be in yesterday. Nobody told me. It's safe to assume that when you book a week off, you're not going to go in to check whether the rotas have changed. Besides, I was on a train.

So... you took the days off that you were working that week, and so they changed the days that you were working? Dick move.

Pretty much, I hadn't booked yesterday off but as I don't work weekends and had previously been told that I wasn't working Monday I stayed in Wales for a couple more days. They would have changed them on Wednesday at the latest, that's a whole five days to phone me and let me know. They only have my mobile number as well, so it wasn't like they tried home and got nothing.

Third unsuccessful job interview.

I'm starting to wonder what two years professional experience and a masters degree is worth when I'm only applying for entry-level stuff. Maybe I am just that hopeless. Blergh.
