Stop shoving it in our faces. Jeeeez
then you can work it out too
welcome to the international dept.
NO, but i do have a print out stuck to my desk wall thing telling me the times in different time zones, but i know the important ones off by heart.
ever tried to schedule a meeting between tokyo, london and LA? dont bother.
and the engineers for that clock are in new york. really easy to work that one out in a stressful moment.
you can stick aukland, sydney and taiwan on that list. oh and Rio.
Counting the whole week though: london, Baku, Malmo and Chisinau.
Who has unfortunately proved to be a bit useless?
Me: Can you send those pictures through? My editor was hoping for them yesterday - would be much appreicated!
Her: Sorry! Been in a meeting all morning - will be ten minutes.
An hour later.
Me: Hi, is there any issue with the pics, just checking they haven't gone to my junk or anything...
Her: On their way!
More time passes. I wait. I wait.
I only met her yesterday and will probably never do so again.
On a related topic, I swear I once posted a thread about PR being the hottest profession, but I can't for the life of me find it.
though the "HR hottie" is another trope.
like PR, it's the balance between good looks and working in a horrific job/profession
She is useless no question.
time to go to bed.
on their way is correct.
Not as horrific as I was lead to believe. Nowhere near Aldershot standard.
I was meant to go on Monday to witness a training session but I was on holiday so I got out of it. YES!
Let's just say I was glad when I got home to Reading each day.
I received an out of office email today from someone who, not only have I not emailed, but I have never heard of. At least I know he'll be back in the office on Tuesday though.
The joys of being in charge of a load of people scattered across the world.
A lot of those were copie into one email though, is that cheating?
I did a deal last year which involved a party in Hurghada, who claimed not to have received a sinlge email on the transacion. there must gave been upwards of 1,000 emails going out on this over 6 months. And we occasionally got 'delivery' or 'read' recipts. FISHY.
I hope yours (and mine) arrive :/
I would never trust anyone from a place called Hurghada.
(hurghada is in egypt.)
With respect, that would be very hard.
In the last hour btw, I've also emailed Toronto, South Sudan and Madagascar. I can explain where these are too if you ilke :)
Nah I'm just jealous that I only get phantom emails from Bolton really
THe farican ones, I can barely spell the country, less still try and say/spell nouakhott
I should have included continent
Fucking time differences.
