I've signed up to the family one and I want to get let my brother use it, but it's a Lux subscription and he's in Ireland. Any id...

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...

Re: The Travel Thread

I know a fair few on here have been around these parts. Am looking towards Thailand/Vietnam/Cambodia for the honeymoon next year. Having to compromise so spending about a week in Phuket doing the lazy stuff but also going to spend a couple of weeks doing the more adventurous stuff. One question I h...

"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."
"Ok, 55"
"Get out of my house."

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 ...

Re: Do you like your job??

I'd move - you're in your 30s right? a couple of years isn't the end of the world, as you say, you'll expand your experience (rather than just increasing experience in what I guess is a specialized area) I think that in 3 years time, it'll look better on your CV that you've reached that officer lev...

Re: Do you like your job??

What Zook said. Can't you just jump up a grade in another company, or is that not a risk you want to take right now? That would be the preferred path, but there are almost no jobs available. I've bee search and working with recruiters since the turn of the year and nothing has come up. In this coun...

Re: Do you like your job??

Head has been wrecked in my current job for a while now, and I've been looking at the options to get out since a bit of a showdown with the department head earlier in the year of the treatment of our team and a load of lies he told me. Then this morning - in what appears to be an effort to stop me l...

Re: What's on your mind?

I applied for mine last week, and probably would have done the exact same thing but for reading about it on reddit about a month ago. Robbing bastards. Speaking of which, the missus was trying to convince me to go for the 'fancy doors' on a pantry we're building. She said that if I was opposed to ge...

Was lucky the massive bouncer had nipped back inside at the time. were they in their stripping outfits outside? where was this? On Friday it's the national ...
