They know that. Even bullshitting in preparation is preparation and that's all they really look for.

(And experience & know-how if it's a skilled job, obv).

You've got to play the game. These people didn't go through the system to do anything less than masturbate their egos 24/7.

On a similar note, I had one of these "my future" meetings with the HR (or in English, a personnel) manager. There were three separate questions of "where do you see yourself in..." 6 months: pulling my hair out at stupid christmas trade, 12 months: an alcoholic and 3 years: unemployed because I started drinking on the job.



I actually, sneakily mentioned that im interested in the next grade up, and am willing to give a managerial position a stab. Nothing to it in retail.

Cheap gay jokes in the Bloodstock 'Robots' video. I really, REALLY don't want to sound like the sort of prick who cries homophobia at the drop of a cravate, and the video isn't homophobic, but seriously? It's the 21st century. Jokes about bumming people when they pass out and liking Kylie Minogue? I thought Bloodstock were better than that. Some metal fans are gay, and I believe a comedian performing this year makes the point that there's not much manlier than fucking a bloke. Not impressed Bloodstock. Not impressed at all.

Not particularly pissed off at the content of that video, just more pissed off that someone took 20 minutes (or less) of their life formulating something that isnt funny in the slightest.

That too, but to be honest I can't help but feel slightly uncomfortable about the content of the promotional material of a festival that I have a certain affection and loyalty towards making such generalisations.

tbh I could actually do this job half asleep, it's just so annoying that I have to actually pretend like I care about good customer service. Half the time I only give good customer service because it really winds up arsey people who want a reason to complain!

Four times. Someone's either careless or doing it on purpose.

I love writing CVs and cover letters. It's fun to see what utter bollocks you can get away with. Best bit is, the simplest of things can be made to sound like you are some awesome motherfucker.

Just leant over the side of my bed to pick something off the floor when I felt a sharp pain in my leg. I've just pulled a sewing needle out of my bed that I'd forgotten about. Ouch

The video is pure shit. As for the jokes, they're the kind of thing that a particular proportion of Bloodstock-goers would find uproariously funny, and the kind of thing that they genuinely say to eachother. Little shits.
