Not something I will be doing for ages, that's for sure. But I need the money and I didn't even have to do an interview! Weird but good! I also know now that I wont be having any kids anytime soon!
Heard of Bjerke/Refstad/Økern? Or maybe Aker Sykehus? 15 min walk from there!
everyone's heard of Økern. its wild up there!
stop making me laugh
! You're that one person now.
Does this mean I get my Fire Safety Scouting Badge yet?
But yes, I think it means that!
wohooo. Giving customers chicken. Salad. Cheese. Fish. Whatever they may prefer! Not going back there again. Then we had the petstore job! I loved it there. THEN a month at my dads job as a carpenter....hmm... was alright.
Hanging Rabbits on the washing line, peeling hamsters, adjusting the reception on fish tanks....the usual stuff, really.
I once worked at a vinyl sign-making company, and managed to get my boss fired after two weeks. That was a good 'un.
you managed to get your BOSS fired? How did you do that??
i still haven't opened the card they gave me for leaving because it was too awkward.
do you think i should open it?
YES. How can you have NOT opened it yet? I open stuff like that right away
i'll write up what it says
it's too awkward to read :'(
I bet its lovely
and they've written a sentence
"oi you scottish monkey, why u leavin? i'll c u around mate, take care of urself"
"good like i the future, i don't envy having to do nightshifts! take it easy"
(i made up on the spot when questioned that i had got a job doing nightshifts at b&q. i don't know why i said this.)
"who's going to mick my polos now! lots of love"
it's not all that bad :) just terribly awkward.
I liked the monkey part! lol.
haha I see. you got any new job yet? Or still looking?
and how come you quit?
i'm not really in a rush to find one though.
it was a fashion section in a department store with brands like all saints and it couldn't have been a more inappropriate job for me. i'm not sure how i managed to stay there for six months.
6 months isnt bad! Good experience. Now you can try something else! Good luck:)
i got a leaving card on friday, my friend signed it with loads of in-jokes suggesting i'm a closet gay and a member of the BNP. he was the first to sign it, so everyone who signed after probably thinks it's all true :(
closet gay.....UHUH :)
well my BNP friend, your time here is done. i hope you find another foreign pal to abuse and shame . have fun and i'm sure you'll fit in fine once you've come out of the closet! kiss kiss, Stu
Did you decide carpentry wasn't for you?
lol I knew it was never for me! But I had no choice according to my dad. Well thank god I got another job, not going back there!
we argue every day now. There's nothing he wont pick on! Driving me crazy
When you get older and have your own place they're really handy for DIY help!
but seriously, he needs to back off tho. I live with my dad but Im thinking about moving in with my mum for a short period of time soon cos.... yeah not nice getting picked on everyday. Only problem is that her apartment is really small and she doesnt even have internet!:( lol
and I've told him I am moving to London next year, but he wont allow me? Im 20........ it will be MY money......
My Dad has got better with age. My younger brother recently gave up his well paid job to take photos on cruise ships. Dad was quite understanding about it.
I hope the same goes for me!:)
Mum isn't like this at all tho..she's very supportive. Always has been
then surely it's none of his business?
plus, if you move here you can hang out with AWESOME DiS PEOPLE!!!
Further to your enquiry, Thursday is rubbish day on your avenue.
i know more about commercial waste than anyone should do.
I've got a second interview on Friday which, according to hints in the first interview today, means that it's but a formality :)
getting made redundant was the best thing that could've happened to you? ;)
But it does depend on how well I can blag this second interview :D
good luck :D
until i lose it on October 11th
Finding a new one is on my to do list
how come you have to quit?
where do you work now?
with the possibility of it being extended. It ended in July so i've done pretty good out of it. Besides working at the post office is making my soul die a little every day, be nice to move on.
good luck with finding another job then!:D
