Dwarf Dilemma

Six of the seven dwarfs are sitting around the house one day when Sleepy rushes in and says, "Guess what guys, I've won a trip to see the Pope!"

Everyone gets all excited and chants, "We finally get to ask him,
we finally get to ask him."

The next day, they are standing in front of the Pope, Dopey out in front of the other six. All the other six start pushing Dopey and saying, "Go ahead, Dopey, ask him, ask him!"

The Pope looks at Dopey and asks, "Do you have a question to ask me, young man?"

Dopey looks up shyly and says, "Well, yes."

The Pope tells him to go ahead and ask. Dopey asks, "Well, do...do they have nuns in Alaska?"

The Pope replies, "Well, yes, I'm sure we have nuns in Alaska."

The others all keep nudging Dopey and chanting, "Ask him the rest, Dopey, ask him the rest!"

The Pope asks Dopey if there's more to his question, and Dopey continues, "Well, uh, do they have, uh, black nuns in Alaska?"

To which the Pope replies, "Well, my son, I think there must be a few black nuns in Alaska, yes."

Still not satisfied, the others keep saying, "Ask him the last part, Dopey, ask him the last part!"

The Pope asks Dopey, "Is there still more to your question?"

To which Dopey replies, "Well, uh, yeah.....are there, uh, are there any midget black nuns in Alaska?"

The startled Pope replies, "Well, no, my son, I really don't think there are any midget black nuns in Alaska."

At this, Dopey turns all kinds of colors, and the others start laughing, and yelling, "Dopey screwed a penguin, Dopey screwed
a penguin!"

WHY do I always end up having to chase up every employer I have to pay me? and then only get anywhere after I've threatened them with legal action? do they think I'm fucking thick?? yes I'm a student, does that mean they can rip me off? NO. I'm having a bad day..

When my last employer sold the business to a company in Sheffield I was offered redundancy or relocation.I'd been there nearly 18 years so I took redundancy,luckily I got another job straight away as it took almost 4 months to get my cheque,and only after I threatened the company with court action.
Sadly as a general rule,employers pay for absolutely nothing until they have to.The bastards.

yeah its true, annoyingly enough.
I sent an email to the student union (where I was working) last night and I got a reply from someone(not my employer) explaining the whole 'mess up'. something to do with a bank error and staff had been told to pick up their wages somewhere else.. everyone except me since the bitch had already 'sacked' me (or rather kept me on the books for when shes desparate). WHY she couldnt explain this after Id rang her repeatidly nagging, and why she had to be all arsey about it blaming me I don't know.. and oh yes, I threatened legal action in that email too, no wonder they actually bothered to reply :rolleyes: or they thought I'd forwarded it to a lawyer or smth since i also sent it my mums work email which is a courts email address :lol:
either wayI can pick my money up later and I hope I got that bitch into bother with her bosses :twisted:

Not sure if I'd appear in public with it, mind you.
Still ...want.
