The women in our office are always going on about this, whenever they are ill they come in and moan like hell for a day before dropping to deaths door and being unable to come in for the next 2 (maximum before back to work interviews kick in!) yet the blokes in the office always seems to struggle in and never take a day off for colds.

Yet the second we make a comment about feeling rough or having a cold it's Manflu and we're acting like babies :wallbash:

Another to add on this topic.

Their inability to filter out male conversations in the workplace with comments such as "I'm trying to work but can't concentrate" and "Haven't you got work to do?"

Whereas the male employees are perfectly able to ignore the endless chatter and pointless dribble they spit out for most of the day!

FFS one rule for one group and all!

Popped down to the office and told thereís now a £3 after saying are you joking it was printed out for free.

Iím sure they tell you to go to box office if you have printing issues

It took all of 5 seconds to print equating to an hourly rate of £2160.

No, it doesn't.

I make it a very crude miscalculation of a job costing, ignoring all the other costs involved.

Fair point...I forgot to take into account 5 secs of office rental, rates & worker wages, printer/computer use & electricity, a smidgeon of wear and tear, plus one sheet of paper and ink in my calculation! That'll bring it down a bob or two!

Zuckerberg giving evidence. Sounds like one of his own data scraping bots starting every single answer with "Congressman/woman" whilst saying absolutely nothing of substance. Dick

It's a rip off whatever way you look at it.

I can board a plane with a "ticket" printed on my own printer. Why not go to an event with a home printed "ticket" ?

There's absolutely no justification whatsoever.

Take it you think the cost is justified - Iím sure that there use to be something somewhere that said - come to the club shop and weíll reprint if you are having problems. No cost mentioned.

This is having already paid £42!

Liverpool continuing to enjoy European glory nights when they robbed us back in ‘91 of our moment in Europe...which ironically wouldn’t have been a issue if their fans hadn’t got us banned in the first place.

Yes, I know it was 27 years ago, but I can’t let it go. The underhand injustice of it all still infuriates me to this day.

Saying the same to a mate in the pub tonight when he asked me why I hoped they get thrashed in the semi finals

Let's face it, he is just going through the motions and catering to the politicians egotistical whims.

Wear a suit and tie, call them Congressman/woman for a few days, then go back to the real world and get on with life.

He is just checking boxes doing this. I'm sure he knows no more about what Russians or Cambridge Analytical know or did, or doing than any of us.

I hope people in 10 years look back at this odd Beardy-hipster era and think "what were they thinking".

I imagine people will be watching replays of last nights European Cup Quarter Finals in 10-20 years time and they'll see Manchester City's goalkeeper with a neck tattoo that a member of a US State Prison Gang would have thought was ill advised just a few years ago and think ... "what were they thinking".

But seriously. I guess if you're that rich, you can ameliorate your inevitable regrets by way of ostentatious spending but still ... Even to a footballer, decisions like that betray a fundamental lack of good judgement.

The whole tattoo craze is weird. Used to be the domain of the hardened few but now any straight laced normal officey type has got one. It’s actually got to the stage when not having one is unusual.

Is this it? Is this normal now or will it go like men’s earrings in the 80’s?

I thought vegans with it tattooed on them were sad, but yesterday I saw a slow park runner with his pb tattooed across his back.

Thatís actually a very good shout. When I was at school all the adults used to say, Ďget into computers son - thatís where the moneyís going to be.í Kids today will be told, Ďlaser surgeon son - thatís the future.í

Commonwealth Games. Worked last night so thought I would watch for a bit, saw the longest ever mountain bike race, lasted about 2 hours with all the action, such as it was, in the last 100 metres. All the time I held on the promise of Beach Volleyball to follow. When it did, Menís. Absolutely gutted. :veryangry
