  1. Job woes/wins

    thats the passive agressive shit i just love lol
  2. Job woes/wins

    unless it was life or death (or maybe something i'd screwed up) i would be telling them to fuck off. working during all this shit is stressful enough without being hassled at home!
  3. Job woes/wins

    i hated working from home, its really not for me. I had quiet space, and could work fine, but that space was my *home*. This is my gaming space, not my working space. I like the finality of closing the door behind me, the processing time of the drive home. I would never permanently work from home again unless i absolutely had to (aka another covid shut down for CEV).
  4. good stuff thread.

    it may sound like bad news to folk who have zero understanding of how horrendous it is to live with a severe chronic pain condition that often results in barely being able to function. And its also multi layered. Of course its a relief to be free of that issue. But theres a lot to process, the physical pain of an op, the loss, the grief. Even if you dont mind not having kids, or not having bio kids its still a big part of whats considered of being a woman. And the endless questions of "when are you having kids already" etc I'm so sorry that you've been let down, this really seems to be so common with women, apparently we are all just "hysterical", no one can tell me that sexism doesnt exist in medicine. My cousin has similar, and was treated the very same. I am nervously excited for you
  5. Office Chairs

    I definitely don't like gaming chairs, I dont like pleather/leather, and just want a simple chair. I got a fabric office chair from The Range but i dont particularly like it. The chair I was supplied with at work is fkin amazing but its like £400 lol
  6. The Great Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram Outage

    Yeah, very very few of the general overall population can be bothered navigating away from the mainstays.... facebook, insta etc. Honestly can't remember the last time i ventured to someones personal web page. We've become very lazy online consumers.. why would we need to actually search for things when the algorithms have found us exactly what we "want" before we even have to type it. One of the big reasons why (sadly) independant groups, forums websites etc (like this one incidentally) have seen a huge drop in numbers over the past 10,15 years. It will be interesting what will replace the likes of facebook etc in another 20 years
  7. The Great Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram Outage

    and that was just me hassling you
  8. House buying is the worst

    Yeah its genuinely one of the most stressful things you can do in your lifetime... especially when its a move cross country. I do have a great belief that things work out the way they do for a reason and sometimes you just have to take the opportunity and jump with it, and try not to worry about the smaller things!
  9. House buying is the worst

    I personally couldnt do without outside space, but i know thats not for everyone. Somewhere to hang the washing out! Especially in such a wet country (ireland) it can be so bloody difficult to keep on top of dampness and mould. Having the dryer on or clothes hanging inside just multiplies that.
  10. House buying is the worst

    someone applied polyfilla with a butter knife in the house i bought..... and the doors were hung by the same skill level
  11. Making 'big' decisions

    i avoid making big decisions like the PLAGUE... thats probably why i spent 16 years in one (miserable in hindsight) job lol
  12. House buying is the worst

    jesus wept, those plugs are horrifying. Realistically even most families dont need more than a 3 bed semi. Theres definitely a culture where i live of going over your means and being in absurd amounts of debt (most cars around my town are <3/4 years old.) My mum used to clean for people that lived in ridiculously huge houses for absolutely no reason at all other than materialism and being able to show off. Even having a cleaner was a huge status symbol even though they paid her literally pennies lol
  13. House buying is the worst

    ^^ ding ding ding I feel like living standards have got to a crazy crazy high - i'm on my own, i really don't need 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms to clean lol.
  14. House buying is the worst

    yeah i'd avoid a new build like the absolute plague to be honest. built like cardboard boxes on the cheap.
  15. Job woes/wins

    my old workplace is in crisis, and theres been adverse incident reports logged because of people continually fucking up the job i used to do. *cackles*
