bit gay innit.
sorry to hear.
maybe. i'm not sure yet. i have a meeting later.
when it would actually be worth about £7K but then they won't fucking do it, will they? WILL THEY?
Theo, you clearly KNOW THINGS about my life.
Or poss are physic.
let's hope you get a nice severance cheque, then you can go around turning the photocopiers to maximum number of copies/maximum darkness.
that's a good idea :)
i just hope they give me a damn present.
no one will sign my card and no one will pay in for a pressie.
that fear is the only reason i am still here.
Unless you get a bit fat (gay?) pay cheque.
I was pretty pleased to be made redundant this time last year. I hated my job, and with a little financial package it meant I could enjoy the World Cup.
yeah, it can suck.
and makes you feel a bit worthless but you often get good money out of the bastards and realise you can take the summer off...well that's my experience anyways
that's rubbish. sorry to hear. how long had you been there?
but they're restructuring, and loads of my mates are getting made redundant too.
i blame illegal downloading :p
compared to the long-term people. Crappy.
that's 3 of my friends that have been made redundant in the past fortnight :(
my two other friends have been very positive about it and say they both wanted to get out of their jobs but were too lazy to do it. Now is there chance.
Naturally if you want a drink etc........ :)
so... it's shit, bit sudden but... it'll be ok. i hope!
You now have lots of free time and can plan my life for me, and keep my seat in the Coffee House warm.
this is bad news for my bank balance, good news for the pubs of london...
still, i've heard you say you hate working there, so maybe it's not such a bad thing?
"dad, did you know that the chinese use the same word for 'crisis' as they do for 'opportunity'?"
atp this weekend!
extra reason to drink!
it's my theory on life.
but welcome to my world, the axe has been hanging over me for months
that have gone from Warner this week. That's where you work isn't it?
there's quite a lot going.
Hope you're okay.
thanks. it's alright, now i can get started on taking over the world.
we shall get mighty drunk at the weekend. 3pm saturday in fact.
FUCK YOU CHELSEA!
Not just that, but at 7.30 on Saturday evening, Quins are on Sky :)
i bet they'll lose..........
oh, and Chelsea.
Chelsea, however, will compound your misery....
support your local team!!!
league or union?
Always league. The game against Warrington is on telly.
it'll be another reason for you to cry.....
start stealing stuff now
get printing random bits of information too :)
into the meeting with you.
Hide milk and kippers in you desk and lock it so they can't get rid of the smell
no Biffy cd for me then?!
Damn Warners, damn them all to hell (except Sarky and Green Day!)
oh well maybe you can have an ace weekend with the knowledge of no work the week after?
down the job centre with me!
I like the incredibly camp man there.
Tottenham Road, I think.
really sorry to hear that... but they say as one door closes and another opens - fingers crossed your next job let's you spend even more time on DiS!
^ What they said. Hope you're OK.
but if you get 3 months redundancy pay, that should be enough time to have a nice break and find a new, half-decent job
i got given my redundancy papers last thursday. my entire team is being replaced by an outsourced company in india. the product we built makes $15m a year too... bastards.
u seem to be a person full of fizz n sparkle u ist like the soda pop of the place u work, sweet bubberly n colourful.
Enjoy the money n good luck for the future! sorry to hear bout this :(
and being called sweet and bubbly - well. there's a first time for everything :)
but i thought comparissons to being sticky and explosive may of been deemed uneccisary
not much else i can say as I have never been made redundant. Hope you're ok.
a v-shop once. it's quite funny in retrospect.
they told him, and i quote, that he was 'just not passionate enough about stationery'
i was told i was "customer unfriendly". lulz.
for dropping boxes all the time.... FedEx
ANC then hired me guess who baught them out a couple months ago? FedEx... im back on my original pay with less work... i win
2005 - 2006 FedEx *fired for being incompetant*
2006 - 2007 ANC
Current occupation: FedEx
talk bout a mind fuck haha 'fuck we are empoying our rejects!
practically threw the 'fragile' boxes on the ground then spent the rest of his stay taking the piss out of our company name.
you want some tips?
i love the idea of not being passionate enough about stationary.
for me it truly is a case than i am "not passionate enough about radiological protection with dentist's x-ray sets"
the funny thing is, i still work in customer service. i just now do it over the phone, where it's a lot easier to be sarcastic to people ;)
over an eraser and an HB ur outta ur mind!
i do DiS when i'm talking to them over the phone and can be pretty slack with deadline sometimes.
Hopefully you'll get some money out of it anyway...
only started fifteen minutes ago
She's officially jobless.
don't worry Sarky, you'll land on your feet!
see above post
really sorry was rooting for yah! well ya never know things could get better for u :) good luck in the future ms. sody popette!
no work means no DIS
i'll expect an extradrunk sarky this weekend then.
when I happened across a very sorry sight.
stinking of whiskey and wielding an empty-starbucks-cup and a faded pic of Bono was DiS very own sarkyfox.
times are hard for the young scallywag now.
Please do your bit and buy her drinks this weekend at ATP.
Every drop of whiskey helps.
it's like the 80's all over again
She hasn't even built us any fuckin canals. Lazy jobless slag.
their wages were a pound of meat and lots of beer a day.
her redundancy payment on whisky already? impressive.
see, you couldn't get rid of me that easily :)
yes, i am now unemployed.. 'fantastic'. however, i am now getting paid to bum around for a month and a bit. ha.
i've just spent the last few hours attempting to fix our internet, and it somehow just worked. ew, partypoker is on. what the fuck is this?!??!
YES now, i can post threads about absolute shit all day on DiS, about afternoon tv. woo!
