    Default Anyone got a gun?

    Had the 'honour' of going into the quarterly company joint departmental meeting - as I will be one of 'them' soon.

    One director was talking about fridges and milk.

    One director was talking about the importance of wearing ties.

    One guy asked finance director why shares dipped once the good results were anounced - I thought most people undersood a little about speculative trading......

    Thankfully only lasted an hour. I left the minute the meeting ended.

    You will be providing us with many such jems in the months to come I predict. I also predict you will have problems selling your house and the mortgage you eventually end up with will be larger and more expensive than you were expecting. You will be trapped in a permie job you hate with a take home that only just allows you to scrape together your monthly loan payments on your depreciating asset purchased at the top of the property bubble.

    Meanwhile you are in last in first out position at your company just ahead of turbulent economic times.


    Duh.

    Duh.
    Argh, I am FRUSTRATED - I soooo need a gun after reading that reply.

    I have an electric oven. My first floor bedroom has a porch to soften the fall onto a soft lawn.

    Just flogged my old banger, so cannot even take that on the motorway for a quick ending with the CV joint about to go on it.

    Either get me a gun quick, get Lucy to counsel me, or cheer me up!

    At least your hand didn't go to sleep making you think you're impotent!!!
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    This I fear may be true. Permanent employees' housing transactions always take about a year to complete, for some reason. But as a 'staffer', you'll be allowed, nay expected, to spend 70% of your time on the phone to the solicitor, and 25% moaning to your colleagues about it. The other 5% gratefully swapping stories with your line manager, who took longer than you to complete on a more expensive house than yours.
