I'm supposed to be going to Carcassonne for a week in July for a family do. It's getting pricey though, sheeeeit.

Might try and go somewhere in August if that falls through. Paris or Amsterdam or somewhere.

Going to Portugal for Primavera in 2 weeks....also, had holiday time booked in work, July 4th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th. On our holiday sheet it just asks you the week you want off, and doesn't give you the option of weekends (as if you're going on holiday, those would usually be considered your 2 days off in a week). They've set me to work July 5, 6, 12, 13.

I have, they say I can take the weekends as holidays (which means using up extra days), or find someone to cover for me. There's one girl who might swap with me, but I'll take them as holidays if I have to.....would just be pretty annoyed at wasting a couple extra days because they felt like being annoying.

I hadn't actually planned on going anywhere for that time yet, but I easily could have! Maybe I can get a new job before I have to do those stupid shifts.

yeah they have it in for him.

its been 10 odd years since I worked in a call centre and they were at that kind of thing with people all the time. it's embedded in the culture of those places.

I think it genuinely might have been a fuck up, so didn't go too mad at them actually. Hopefully I can either get a different job in here (applied for something to do with billings, is 12-8 M-F and off phones), or I can get a different job in Belfast/Galway/Dublin. Rusty, I'd love to tell them to get fucked and just quit, but then I might not have a job for ages.

Absolutely no fucking chance I'm working the day of the World Cup final though, I'd actually booked that time to not miss any matches from the quarters on.
