What sucks in your life?

Knowing someone rather close to me is dealing with depression and huge self esteem issues. Its not the cause of them, but having recently found themselves single is not helping either. Rather surprisingly this has been for a few years and there was no sign at all, not to me anyway.

Felt very odd seeing someone who I am more used to thinking of a running around a rugby pitch trying to disintegrate the opposition sat in a corner of a room crying :\

Attending a pointless meeting today with pointless f* people. Longing for the weekend for some space (IF that is indeed possible) - weather doesn't seem to promising for Saturday, so I may not manage my cycling.

PLUS my newspaper "fame" is starting to become a menace. Got so many people asking "What are YOU going to do next"? Like I was the only person in the situation, eh?! Not to mention the fact I STILL have not got any more correspondence from Parliament, and will have to follow this up next week. After that, we MAY see what I will DO next.

Why do OTHER people have no patience. PLUS, I had someone try to TELL me where I should go and live next. Er... I... yes, that is right... I will decide on what I think of the next place I will go and live in.

So pissed off with work at the moment. I booked from 17th Dec to 2nd Jan off in January this year so enough time to think of cover right? No, been told today that ima not allowed next week off as it will be too busy, as if it's my problem! 11 months isnt enough time to plan it seems! :grrr:

It is so useful once you get into your shorthand. Seriously, especially for telephone conversations, when you need to note a lot down in a hurry.

Is it tee-line or Pitman they are making you do?

tee-line. which apparently is another word for Squiggly lines.

I am surprised your work WOULD be busy?! At this time of year most places are really starting to wind down.

Primark most certainly aren't winding down, we're not allowed any holidays at all in November and December. All I get is Christmas Day and the bank holidays off. :(

So save the last dance

Thats normal for retail though as its the busiest period. I remember in my Matalan days the rules were no holidays from the middle of November till the beginning of January, and they weren't keen on authorising time off at the start of the Summer sale either.

Well most companies are buying gift vouchers for their employees now as a Christmas bonus. Although I've no idea why they all want M&S ones

Its cheaper for them to do it that way. They sure as hell won't be buying them at face value and will have struck a pretty good deal with M&S. In their eyes its a winner for them both; M&S get business and the other company doesn't have to part with huge sums of money in the process of giving their staff something at xmas.

My work simply gives staff a free lunch voucher. I know though that quite a few drivers have either handed them back or won't be using them in protest at us being given something which amounts to £3.50 while the bosses upstairs are apparently getting bonuses considerably more substancial than that. I say "apparently" because I'm always wary of the papers making more out of something just to make a story out of it.

Lesson one: Never work in retail.

Add in the factor that they get the joys of listening to xmas music a lot earlier than they would like and stuff arrives in the shops exceptionally early (Shatalan's record was our first xmas box in the stockroom early September one year) while the staff are still expected to remain happy and cheery about the whole thing for the duration. Its not all bad though, its an opportunity for those who want overtime to clock up a few more hours

I am fucking furious. I have just found out via my MP's assistant that my landlord can continue to operate in the same manner from the New Year. The very fact there WAS a fire caused by the last tenant is being denied. Even DESPITE this going into newspapers.

He + others have to act "in a more sensitive manner towards other residents" in future.

Seriously, this is beyond a fucking joke. I now have to think about what to fucking do next.

Actually ..... if you needed anything, you would pretty much have to shop in your own shop as well, due to lack of time !!

Well most people still generally work 5 in 7 so there are a couple of days they can go to do any shopping they need to. Personally I try and do my shopping on my breaks when I'm at work or on my way to/from the house to save me the bother of going in again on my day off.

Seriously, this is beyond a fucking joke. I now have to think about what to fucking do next.

Just look for somewhere else which isn't owned by that particular landlord then you should be free of any dangers you feel you're currently in surely?

Right. Get this.

Yes. I shall be moving in 2013. I shall be on a MISSION in 2013 to find alternative accommodation.

However, this still leaves this landlord free to rock on distressing other residents and putting young kids into danger. NOT. ON.

So, after sitting fizzing for a while yesterday, I managed to get to see a member of the SNP, who has given me addresses of important people I must right to with key points (more time now to be taken up over Xmas to deal with this). Seems also, despite having received a negative reply from my Labour MP, I am STILL entitled to insist they put more pressure onto the Landlord to review allocation policies. Am told the MP won't like it, but I am still entitled to do so.

Come early 2013, I am going right back after this f* landlord, and NOBODY is gonna stop me.

Each to their own.

I'd be taking the view that once I'm out of the property and with a different landlord that it ceases to be any of my business. Can't be arsed arguing with you, but you really will be creating unnecessary hassle for yourself.

I wasn't asking you to argue. Actually, I would AGREE with the above post. However, if, at a later stage, this goes back into the press because there is some serious incident in which people are killed, I would NEVER forgive myself for having never taken the opportunity to try again to sort the problem when I HAVE addresses to write to, and could have stated something (anything better than doing just nothing). Plus, in the case of some serious incident, all EVIDENCE of attempts to try to resolve this situation are in black and white, and will NEVER be denied by this landlord or anyone else.

Anyhow, I have got the email addresses this morning of important local councillors, now I gotta get this letter drafted over Xmas with the key points, and get it fired off in the New Year.

Then, all Hell may break loose, but what the Hell, bring it f* on.
