Hi lads just a quick update about Master T we were allowed to visit him in the mental hospital at Ryhope yesterday it's the first time we've seen him in 6 days. He was allowed to go to the local Asda

Yo kiddiewinks. It’s just gone 3am but it feels like 2am. If you have any old-fashioned clocks in your households from the early days of the forum then please adjust them accordingly. And can you clea

It occurred to me this evening that my traditional posts reminding you boys to adjust your clocks accordingly twice a year (not a euphemism) is becoming redundant in this digital age. However, here I

I might have a bit of a dilemma in the next few days. I've been getting a bit worried about not having a job after finding out how much my previous employer have fucked me over regarding redundancy. Bottom line is I need to have a job by September the 20th or I'll be struggling.

 

Anyway I had a phone interview for a contract role on Tuesday and have a follow-up face to face this afternoon which will be the final yes or no with a view to probably starting next week which is great but its only a three (possibly six) months contract. Financially at the end of 3 months I'd be fine for another 8 months without work which would increase to a year with a six months one. It's also via a consultancy which is how I previously worked as a contractor which should mean "guaranteed" constant work in the future.

 

The dilemma comes from having just had a first phone interview for a permanent role with Barclays and they want to interview me again on Monday (I tried for tomorrow with no luck). This is an excellent job and even though banks are evil as we all know, working for them is a massive plus for my CV. Obviously an interview isn't a job offer so if I do get an offer on the contract I'd be very tempted to take it to calm my fears.

Accept the offer, then stiff them if the Barclays role works out. And try not to feel a second of guilt about it cos they're almost certainly a bunch of cunts.

No "almost certainly" about it - I do have a major flaw in not being a cunt myself - it's my Mam's fault.

 

I think if they do offer me the contract I'll insist it's on the condition of starting a week on Monday - then I can see how the Barclays one pans out next week.

Wish my job applications were this straight-forward.

 

I'm going for an assistant manager job in Farnham. After a month featuring interviews with the cafe manager, chain MD and a trial shift; all of which were fine, I just get an email from the potential boss that he's been in a car accident and is off work until the doctor gives him the all clear.

 

I'd think it was bollocks if he hadn't attached a pic of his car to the email. Jesus.

 

Whilst I hope the guy's ok, I really want this job and he seems keen on giving me it, but it all hinges on the MD. My lass found out I'd gone for it and has managed to score herself a first full time job inside the time I've been waiting on the outcome of this application. :lol:

 

Do I contact the MD or just sit it out and remain keeping everything crossed?

Well good luck to you two. At least you're managing to get interviews. Been trying like hell for the past 6 months, no idea what happens to my applications! :lol:

 

Brock if I was in your place I'd wait a week or so before contacting the MD. I wouldnt want them to know Im too desperate but would want to show interest at the same time.

Just in case you haven't had your daily "What the fuck?" moment.....

A man with a cow slurry fetish has been jailed for five years after threatening to kill a family who tried to stop him targeting their farm.

 

David Truscott, 44, repeatedly rolled around naked in cow slurry and developed an obsession with a farm in Redruth, Cornwall.

 

Exeter Crown Court heard that Truscott, formerly of Camborne, Cornwall, targeted the property for eight years.

 

Last year he admitted making threats to kill and also damage property.

 

Calf killed

The court heard that he initially removed cow pats from the farm but his behaviour escalated, with Truscott regularly entering the farm to perform a sex act in slurry.

 

The court was told he then decided to exact revenge on the owners when they erected bollards and removed slurry from their farm in a bid to deter him.

 

Truscott, who was jailed in 2005, 2009 and 2011 for his actions at the property, repeatedly set fire to their shed, tractor, enclosures and hay - killing a calf in one blaze.

 

On Friday he was handed an extended sentence of 10 years following psychiatric reports.

 

Judge Philip Wassall said Truscott, who has autism spectrum disorder, would spend the first five years of his prison sentence receiving hospital treatment.

 

He will serve an extended licence period of five years on release from prison.

 

The judge also imposed an extended restraining order to keep him away from the farm.
