The bosses are on holidays and and a friend and colleague here is drunk all day in work. Must not have slept at all.
Rough. I'd have just stayed at home.

Oh man.

Boss' brother passed away suddenly yesterday. Rough stuff.

Anyway everyone was told this morning. One of the girls only came in later for whatever reason, and so didn't get the memo.

Boss just arrived in now everyone was like....hi...hello...he's in black suit and shades.

She goes...WELL, YOU'RE LOOKING VERY MEN IN BLACK THIS MORNING.

OHHH GOOOOODDDDDNDNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOO it was like it was happening in slow motion.

That hurt just to read it. I can't even imagine what it would be like to see in the flesh.

A guy I used to work used the "cheer up it's not like somebody died" expression to a girl before, turned out her Granny had died the previous weekend.

He wouldn't be at all racist but managed to make an unfortunate holocaust joke while sitting beside a jewish guyl....

Asked a non pregnant girl when she was due!

Tried to complement a girl on her hair once and managed to insinuate it hadn't looked the way it was previously.

Think there was more as well but it's a while since he left....

The when are you due thing...you hear about that so often, I don't know how anybody would make the mistake.

Just say nothing unless you're absolutely certain.

And if it gets weird that you didn't say anything, then you can make a good joke and say well shit I didn't know for sure so wasn't going to risk it lolololol.

I was talking to one of the girls int he office today, and she was wearing a tight enough dress that I noticed she had a bump. Theres no way shes not pregnant, but she doesnt normally wear dresses, just suit pants/jacket combos etc so I didnt risk it in case I just hadn't noticed before

Best way out of these confrontational situations is to offer her a ride. If she says no, she's obviously Keith Cheggers.

I've spent the morning going through CVs for a job on my team. Christ the shite some people put on them is unreal. e.g.:
- "Marital Status: Live-in Partner, daughter (6 years)"
- "Have Private Car"
- A guy gave a description of where he went and what he did for his gap year

Then you have the applicants who are applying for a job that's 1 step above entry level, who have 27 year experience and are the "Executive Director of Global Sales" and oversee departments of 600 people.

But the best is the guy who as a bachelor's degree and a masters in Criminology.
His thesis is entitled "The use of video tapes for the auditions of child victims of sexual abuse".
