OK< I'll let those who don't have work tomorrow have their fun today.....

Today I am mostly sorting out Sundays bike ride, what else am I meant to do to muse myself at work?

Did I mention that as part of our deal with the hotel we use we get a 'happy hour' free bar from 6:30-8:30.......gets wearisome after a few days mind!

  • I think it's too early for me, what does TFTS mean?

    Morning Losers!

    It's Friday, and for me, that's the most exciting thing.

    Work - Home - Bury - Pub.

    Laters!
    It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeeded.

    Thank F**k Tomorrow's Saturday!

    Who are you burying, or is the person yet to nominate themselves by pi55ing you off?

    morning

    Working from home today as I need to finish early for the mother in laws 70th Birthday party - which has meant another 6 mile run this morning :)

    Right, time for bacon - better wake the wife up to cook it

    You mean she doesn't get up before you and greet you with a freshly brewed coffee. You really should get that sorted, I'm sure she'll understand.
    Morning all,
    Still remarkably warm for the time of year, rained last night but sunny now. Unfortunately the ride was to work and not something nicer. Should be reasonably quiet at least. Fryday so off to the cafe later, until then tea and biscuits. Not sure what yet.

    Ahh that makes sense.

    Well, we'll have to see how the day goes!

    Just ask him what remuneration enhancements will be provided for this loss, I would suggest it is quite a valuable term and condition to employees so would be going in with 15% pay rise as an opening suggestion, try and sound like your being constructive and he'll soon see it really isn't worth it - besides he'll get feck all out of you anyway!

    Unfortunately Mr Rookie, i'm military so he can make us do it but we can make his life a misery, which is how it usually goes.
