aha. rant away then. though perhaps attacking unrestricted free market capitalism in this environment is not a good mark to have on your file.

Aye that's the shiter. I think it's like 9 months to a year from now they'll have put me through my qualification and I can leave without a payback clause so keep the old mouth shut until then and I can hopefully walk into something a bit more worthwhile. Was working in a call center 4 months ago so baby steps.

Got an email about Christmas Jumper Day today. Haven't been inside my office for 260 days. Nonsense.

We've to decorate our desks. It'll be a different conversation this year, I'll just lie and say I have. Rather than the awkward "Don't bother with mine...no really, I'd rather you didnt...please not there, it's in the way...look I've told you just leave it...

Total nonsense.

When did this pish start anyway? Seem to remember a few personality vacuums wearing them at a Christmas night out a few years ago. It caught on in an "ironic" way. Now its becoming fucking compulsory!

No sooner is the poppy off the jacket but they're all wearing fucking Rudolf or snowflakes on a £4 bit of Primark fashion landfill.

A bit rich considering the damage looking at any website does.

that really depends on how many kids you have, that never ever gets mentioned though, you could fly around the world on holiday, then come home to your house with the coal fire and your 20 years old diesel banger, and the new mummy across the street who recycles everything has done 50 times the damage you have.

At work yesterday I had to chaperone half a dozen school wean save the environment cuntos who wanted to see a salmon farm.

 

They ALL will do more damage than I ever could.

How many gallons of fuel does Greenpeace use in a year? Wee p***ks couldn't answer that.

Pre-Covid colleague keeps walking around the office announcing to everyone how busy he is (pretty sure he spent about 40% of his day away from his desk telling people how busy he is, the extra hours he puts in and how many emails he gets per minute he's been standing beside you).

Since WFH, he's resorted to broadcasting each morning on the teams channel how late he was working and how many emails he has since logging in.

Why are some people so insecure in their jobs that they need to constantly hammer home to everyone how busy they are when in reality they're doing f**k all (including being backed up by metrics but can talk a good game to middle management about how good they are)?

There was nothing more satisfying this morning (I am still on a high) than seeing his face during our weekly scrum when I asked him that why if he's working so hard for so long he isn't getting anything done.

We were meant to have selfies next to our trees as a "best decorated tree" competition AND have a video call wearing our christmas jumpers. Couldnt do either, the tree i didnt do citing personal reasons (not even bullshitting to get out of it eithrr, there is a lot going on in home life right now making it hard to even put in the effort to pretend to Get Into The Christmas Spirit. If i took part it'd just be like that peep show bit of "i should get extra points for not feeling a fucking thing")

My machine doesnt have a camera and theres no webcam in the house so i couldnt do that either, plus being honest im fucking dishevelled right now. I dont even own a christmas jumper and it feels like its only a recent thing people have started giving a shit about, in fact theres not even a tree up in the house because its just me and the doggo + cats in here at the minute and it feels like a waste of time.

Zero fucks given tbh
