Weird photo - the colours have all gone haywire. And yes, I do know one of those people - used to be one of my kids' primary school teacher! But that's not what I look like, I'm afraid.

We had a meeting at work today and I was asked what steps I would take in the event of a fire. Apparently "fucking big ones" wasn't the right answer

I'm sure there's an employment thread somewhere but couldn't find it so this is the next best thing...

My place is restructuring and my job was downgraded, so I was out of the ring fence for it. Went for a systems management job in the same team and got it! :cheers: Lower grade but pay protection kicks in. Good times! I was up against a good mate and he lost out. Bad times.

We're both going to the match tonight. Good times?

Do you mate a favour - if we win 4-0 don't go shouting about capping off a perfect day :shock:
The only thing we knew for sure about Henry Porter was that his name wasn't Henry Porter.

Got into work this morning and all the IT had fallen over, apparently because of a power cut over the weekend. IT fella's on holiday.

I haven't got a bastard clue about all this shit, and we share a floor with three companies, so there's one rack with about 15 bits of kit on it: file servers, mail servers, UPS, backup etc etc.

So I took a blind guess which one was our important one and just kept pressing all the buttons until it rebooted.

Job's a good 'un. This IT consultant game is a piece of piss.

<work head on>: If thats the full length of the companies IT, then the consultant isn't doing his job. At the absolute minimum you need some kind of offsite backup facility. A bloke I know feels very pationately about this sort of shit, the sort who'll hammer home his point until he's convinced you'll never forget it... every company out there is an IT company, because if their IT fails they can't trade, if they lose their data and have no backup, its game over.

I had to send in an evaluation assessment. I gave 10/10 for the leeds fan and 0/10 for the scum fan. Wasn't fair but felt good. :D

I love H+S guys, constant source of amusement. We had a guy working for us, and the gaffer started calling him Keith Lard, like the guy off Phoenix nights. Well, that was it, it stuck, and next it was Dogtanian, and all the dog bothering jokes. He had a store cupboard at head office, and would not let anyone go in there. After he left, even the MD was giving it the piss takes about how he had an load of poodles in there wearing suspenders. Funny how quick these things snowball.

Well my source of amusement tomorrow is investigating a shattered collar bone with complete dislocation and 5 broken ribs.

I bet the bloke is laughing his cock off.

And then there was the fella that fell 100ft to his death that I investigated, I bet his family are still laughing about that one.

H&S, what a load of bollox.
