Petty Things That Get On Your Nerves...

Recommended Posts

2 things from shopping last night. People who plough a big trolly into the self serve tills that are basket only...and the other girl who was involved in a long call on her mobile, so incapable of proccesing any more than 1 item every 2 mins. :angry:

Dini.

I work in a supermarket and the amount of folk that can't read "15 items or less" is unreal. In fact, customers in general are annoying wankers.

See when you drive a round trip of 1010 miles to an interview (yes I'm submitting an expenses claim and yes there was an overnight stay involved) which starts at 8am and last most of the day, and then drive back home with the promise that they will 'phone you to let you know either way that evening'

and then the don't?

that'd be annoying enough yes?

you know, *that* I'm almost willing to accept. these things happen I was still driving till 1.20 am -I had oil issues which I had to improv solve en route but that's another story.

You know what my not quite P TTGOMN?

I *called* them this afternoon, 'oh, right yes, X will get back to you later tonight. he's in a meeting till 9pm'

,,,,,its 1.15 am now.

Now if I didn't get it, I'm submitting a fucking massive expense claim -fully receipted- and it was good experience of an english teaching interview -involving a demo lesson- and all of that tick, that's ok. I mean I'd like to get it -well at the moment I'll sleep on it. It's the utter contemptuous lack of thought/regard I'm being held in here, either phone me like you said -twice now- you said you would or don't. But don't say you will then don't!

Maybe theyre trying to let you down gently.

then its like a plaster. a simple swift, no thanks, no harm or foul, fair enough here's my expense claim thanks for the experience. but its this 'we'll call you later' and then not, that's pissed me right off.

not least because criticism regardless of painfulness is useful to the reflective practitioner.

I had to "urgently" (their words) go to HR with my passport today and show evidence that I was entitled to work in the UK because of the immigration act. I mean, putting aside the fact that they've been paying me and so presumably have my NI number, my bank details, address and christ knows what else, there is also the thing that I've been working here since 2007, and a student since 2003, so is it not a little late to demand evidence?

I'm in the process of getting my American Express card transferred from the UK to the USA. One thing I have to do is get a letter from the Social Security office stating that my social security number is... my social security number. The fact that I have a social security card which has my number and my name on it isn't quite enough.

I didn't think a SSC was a form of ID now? :unsure:

That too, but then, I am under the supervision of and work for projects with a Dr Hussain, and a variety of middle eastern and asian types (my supervisor now has 1 Scot (me), two Italians, a Syrian, 2 Pakistanis, a Malaysian, and a Saudi working for him as PhD students and sometime researchers). Frankly, even I feel like I'm part of a terror cell sometimes. :P

Presumably the theory is that you could forge a social security card itself, but letter from social security would be just too difficult to do?

Picture this. You've been in the house alone for a few days. You've not had anything to do so haven't bothered to get in the shower. You feel a delicious sandwich is in order. You prepare the sandwich and cup of tea. Looks great and you settle down at your desk to munch away. All of a sudden you get itchy balls. You stick both hands down there and get right in about the itch until it's gone. You finally pick up your delicious sandwich but are confronted by a rancid smell. It's your unwashed balls, it's now all over your hands and your sandwich.

That's what gets on my nerves.

Balls should be washed every day, even if it's just a wipe with a warm soapy chamois leather cloth.

Therefor I have no sympathy for your cheesy cheese sandwich.

I'm in the same situation, only I wash downstairs after a session on YouPorn. Therefore my cheese roll earlier was just that.

Away to deliver leaflets in the pissing rain :(

This, XBL - is what wins elections. It's called hard work, not fannying about on a fitba' message board trying to convert the unconvertable.

I will publically shame you until you join up :P
