Re: Do you like your job??

After over 11 years, today is my final day in this job. End of an era. WTF are you gonna post about now? I should probably just leave the board. It would be fitting as I joined just 2 months before I started the job. Although after 2 days on this team, I think I'll get some mileage out of these mis...

Re: Do you like your job??

What???? Your new place better provide you with as much reason for ranting I'm staying within the same company, just a different department. In fact, I just counted it; I'll be 27 steps away from my current seat. you should insist on having some head melters in your new team There is at least one b...

Re: The Travel Thread

Anyone have recommendations of Ho Chi Minh City accommodation ?

I was there many years ago, but saw very little of the city so I've no idea of the different areas.

Re: The Footie Thread 2014/15

My reaction to the Syrians hitting the post in the last minute brought more attention than I would have liked to the fact that I was streaming it at work.

Re: What's on your mind?

Some people amaze me. I was back in Dublin for the weekend, and when I arrived to Stillorgan at about half past midnight on the aircoach, I noticed some mong took my bag by mistake. The one they left behind incidentally, looked fuck all like mine. After rooting around I was able to get yer man's nam...

Re: What's on your mind?

When I was doing the reverse around the corner bit, I had checked out the place as I drove by, but by the time I started to reverse, so cunt had put out his wheelie bin and I panicked. Started navigating around it now problem, but forgot the mirror ...

Re: Do you like your job??

Got (re-)offered the job.

Kinda wish I hadn't been quite as honest with my soon to be ex-boss now, as I was also informed that they are moving within the building. My new desk will be 27 steps away from where I am now.

Re: The Travel Thread

And if you're looking for a book on Cambodia don't get 'Not Without My Father'. Unless, of course, you want to read about some woman doing a 400 mile hike in the US. THANKS A LOT BIGGY SHACKLETON! On the other hand, if you happen to find somewhere that sells 'First They Killed My Father' as an e-boo...

"I know the ad says 150 quid, but with that bit of damage there I'll only give you 50."
"That damage is the reason it's not 250 quid."

Re: Do you like your job??

There's no timeline for the next officer promotion, it all depends on a multitude of things. A mate who started the same month as I did (at entry level) got it about 5 years ago. But he's a superstar. A girl that sits near me, is pretty decent at here job, but still not there after 18 years. But... ...

Re: Do you like your job??

how worried are you the useful girl in your team will leave altogether, nevermind the Mat Leave? Are the useless people on your team just shit in general, or shit compared to her? Like if she left, would you imagine her replacement would probably still be better than them? Would she slot into your ...
