Re: Venting Thread Delta - Now With Easy to Follow Rules

So a few weeks agao I applied for a Christmas driving job at Argos, a department store (sort of) here in the UK. They were offering significantly more hours than my current (under)employer and a slightly higher wage, at least untill Christmas. This is a job I can do easily. Hell, it's essentally the...

Re: The depressing depression thread

I can feel myself getting bitter again. I've been unemployed since leaving university this year (an unfinished MEchEng degree). Last week I managed to get a job at a well known pizza chain as a delivery driver. It's SO fucking boring. As I want to earn more than minimum wage I'm still job hunting, s...

Re: The depressing depression thread

Another day, another job rejection e-mail. Oh, and one off to interview that I REALLY don't want and only applied to out of desperation.

Re: Venting Thread Delta - Now With Easy to Follow Rules

I've had most of those happen to me as well, with the added bonus of useless job agencies I'm forced to go to. Oh Christ! I'd forgotten about those. Another thing I can't stand is when I do get a job, I'm probably going to be on a temporary tax code until the paperwork gets straightened out (how qu...

Re: Venting Thread Delta - Now With Easy to Follow Rules

Crap, not the smartest thing for them to do, but I'm sorry to hear that happened. Are you okay? Yeh, I hadn't known him that long but the potential to be proper friends was there. What gets me is the waste, he was a smart guy, he was 3 months into a MechEng degree. It's all just so fucking *stupid*.

Re: Venting Thread Delta - Now With Easy to Follow Rules

So a friend of mine died last night.

He was 18 years old, he took two tablets of what he thought was MDMA and went into cardiac arrest. It seems that his life came down to £15 worth of pills.

Re: Venting Thread Delta - Now With Easy to Follow Rules

An hour and a half wait to leave due to a drained battery, a car crash, completely missing the event you went for in the first place and arriving home 9 hours after you set out with no car- a decidedly shit way to spend an evening. That's why my car now contains a set of jump leads at all times. My...

Re: Looking for SF/Fantasy book recommendations

Space Captain Smith (and all subsequent sequels) by Toby Frost.

If you're a fan of Pratchett then I think you'll like this, it's a send up of pretty much *every* SF/fantasy trope there is.

I'm cutting ties with the person who has been one of my best friends for over a decade. *Hug* I've been in a similar situation and I know how shitty it can be. Alas, all I can really offer right now is a metaphorical hug through the internet. This needn't be forever though, maybe in 6 months you'll...

You know what? If someone's dumb enough to trespass on the railway then the policy of the drivers should be to just mow the fuckers down.

I'm glad to have it dealt with. But it's a pain to keep it draining.

Only thing is I'm going to have to loose some weight, I'm about 110-115 kg and each seat is officially rated for about 105kg (+ weight of parachute etc). Mind you, this might ...
