i've been in 2 hrs - done 5 mins proper work
but I've just decided I'm quitting in 6 months, so fuck it
i need to get out of here, it's not good for my soul
It's really quiet today though, I'm not sure what anyone is doing.
So far I've taken a bin bag out and checked the Rita to make sure my boss hasn't cocked anything up. I'll probably do a bit more this afternoon.
I haven't taken any rubbish out though.
and have been filling out a job application form (but paused to reply to this thread)
i've done about 15 minutes work. i've made the official decision that my new job is fucking shit. i don't like it. i'll be here another 6 or 7 months at most. i'll try and put a little bit of effort in but i don't really care.
it seemed like a good opportunity but to be honest, we are just dealing in bullshit and abstract numbers that don't mean anything. it's pretty political as well. i'm not into it.
will yusally add a couple in at the end when i'm done
have to deal with less idiots talking in fucking riddles all the time
the ones that actually give a salary are all less than i earn now
i don't even earn that much
i just don't think i want to expend effort anymore. like, obviously a bit. but not in this way where i'm constantly scratching my head about whether or not what we're doing is actually right. i'm not interested.
do you reckon there's much cash in that?
they do pretty well out of it. i think it's pretty viable. the problem is volume and getting your name out there. they sold a right load of old shitty designs that would come up in search terms to get going. they bought 500 christmas stockings in november as well and sold them with personalised printed names on. just anything really
but yeah, i'll find it for you
Let's start a shop doing that. chris-budget and andyvine vs the world
i don't want to be against you
i can't do that.
coz he has -budget in his name like
most likely yes
yeah, swap is on
i REALLY need a new job
because i've actually got an important job
And 59 minutes of pissing about achieving nothing.
Actually not a bad ratio for Monday morning.
vaguely legitimate though - I'm running an archive process that takes a couple of hours. I could do other work while I wait, but I have chosen not to, other than building a solitary pivot table
'I like work. It fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours'
Jerome K. Jerome
an anti-feminist troll from australia has been contacting me at work.
what a fucking loser
he might be nice, and an excellent dancer
Wasn't expecting the student to come. Student didn't come. Finished 'work' at 9am. I love summer.
now i'm back at my desk.
all in all, I've been pretty preductive so far.
Where's my tab?
I feel dreadful today.
productive monday. got in an hour early to set stuff up.
met the company - a band with a great singer who will be doing a tribute to jacques brel - did some rigging of a mirror ball and projector screen, showed them about the building/storage etc. now i'm just sort of pissing about while they plot lights and AV.
WE might be the problem with the economy?
