I would at least have the common courtesy to ask if it's alright to eat In the car?

If I were you i'd have had the windows down the whole way.

Well she mumbled an apology, but didn't ask. And I did open the window briefly, but I was more worried about peanut butter spores flying about (vile vile stuff) so I shut the window again.

Started giving a lassie a lift to work every day cos she doesn't drive. It's only 10 minutes out my way so not a huge deal. But she's often running late, and leapt in the car this morning clutching her breakfast ... toast and peanut butter - and then proceeded to drop crumbs and stink out my motor on the way into work. 

Am I right in thinking this is some shameful shit?

Was in a similar situation a few years back with a colleague. I’d arrive outside (at the agreed time), phone him and tell him I was outside. 15 minutes later he’d rock up breakfast muffin in hand. This happened everyday for 2 weeks.

Eventually told him I’d give him 2 minutes after the agreed time and if he wasn’t there I was leaving and he could explain to his boss why he wasn’t able to get into work. I had some irrational rage during that period.

people who are given a set time to be ready for and continuously fail to be ready at said time are the worst kind of scum.

I worked with an incredible functioning alcoholic down in England once - he had a daily routine that would put Oliver Reed to shame.

In at 7 every day, maybe not bright but certainly early, he kept the edge off in the morning by means of a bottle of vodka he kept in his desk. Two hour lunch in the boozer and more nips from the voddy throughout the afternoon before leaving to go back to the pub where he drank till shutting time. Basically if he was awake, he was drinking.

I assume he must have eaten at some point but I never saw him do it, just drink enough to kill a small horse on a daily basis.

Worked with quite a few serious alcoholics over the years, I found it a thing of wonder as to how they could function properly with so much alcohol in their system. You could tell when they had sobered up a bit as that was the times they struggled.

 

We had one alcoholic labourer who used to wear loads of jewellery, big chunky gold chains and bracelets, sovvy rings and a watch. As the week went on the amount of bling he was wearing would get less and less, then when we got paid on a Friday it would all be fully restored after a quick trip to get it all back from the pawn shop.

It’s just liberty taking the fuckers should be grateful for the lift and be standing waiting outside every morning.

My work colleague who is obsessed with the phrases "I'll take a screenshot", "ill put it in a spreadsheet" and "at my old work we did it this way".

Its became a meme how much these phrases get said.

Noone cares about your old job, we dont need to hear "at my old work we did this" twice a day every day. Shut up

Indeed, I could accept once, maybe twice as just being a bit late but it was literally every day so I realised that the c**t just didn't give a shit and I snapped.

Sad to hear that Mr T has fallen on hard times. 

I've definitely posted this before, but it's one of the funniest things on the internet ....

Aye, we had a lassie like that - she came highly regarded from her last place, where she'd been for a long time.

It quickly became apparent though that she was actually fairly dim and had only ended up doing well in her last role because she'd been there forever - there are some people that are only capable of learning one job well per lifetime.

She spent her whole time trying to dig in and recreate her previous job in her new one despite the fact that the two had nothing in common..."In my old job, we used to do it this way..." was her mantra.

Did they, aye?

She didn't last long.

Should have grown a pair and lied about having a peanut allergy.

Toast is an unacceptable passenger snack IMO. Shouldn't be anything that's likely to cause a mess or smell.

I'd suggest brewing up a rancid fart to cover the smell of peanut.

Packed in car sharing due to one guy who would ask to meet at a different time just about every morning and then be both late to arrive for his specifically requested time and then fucking disappear at the end of the day.

Hope you didn't actually tell him you were packing it in and just didn't turn up.

There's a woman n our office who recently learned the terms "inter" and "intra".

Unfortunately, she didn't bother to learn that there is a difference in meaning, and regularly invites the whole company to department meetings and vice versa.

I'm sure this has been mentioned already, but leaving speeches...what is the point? Whenever I've left a job I've just said "bye now" and walked out the door. If you want to have a proper farewell with the few people in the office you get on with or consider friends, go out for drinks afterwards.
