He came back to me the next day and apologised for swearing at me. Makes me feel less angry when I see him now at least.

Going to the doctors with severe kidney pains, being told yes you have a problem with the kidney. Fine... A year long battery of tests ranging from painful to embarrassing. The specialists have now told me that yes there is a treatment but no I cant have it as it would lead to further complications. So I essentially have to go through life more or less in constant pain. Grrr!!!!!

it is a pocket of skin just inside the kidney sometimes it blocks it entirely. The doctors thought it was kidney stones at first.

Looking on the brightside though, better than an eight hour day of pain.

Being off work at the most important of times (lots of aircraft functional tests going on that I should be signing off...someone else had to do it and I'm not happy that I couldn't) with Bronchitis...and not being well enough to have the enthusiasm to work on my hobbies :(.

At the moment? Bad things happening to good people. It's starting to get tired.

and on another ebay theme... people that freely bid an item up to maybe 3 times what i believe its worth and then message you to say "its not worth that much i'll offer you half."

i just reach for the payment dispute button.

grrrr

aquaplaning at 80mph
threat of redundancy when your company is bought out
useless childminders
being stressed out all the time and taking it out on innocent bystanders
in-laws visiting when you are knackered
crappy loan work laptops
useless ineffective managers

Yeah, could be a lot better, couldn't it?  Still, I'm kinda looking forward to spending Christmas with the kids without worrying about work at all :)  About the only thing to look forward to right now!

Well, I thought a could add a bit to this, but before posting I read all that I had missed.  Mine's not so horrendous by comparison. 

I had a flat tyre on my way to work.  They were old and I expected it.  I got out of the canyon I was driving and changed the wheel with my full-size spare.  Four new tyres and alignment.  They gave me a loaner for a day and a walnut dropped on the windscreen and broke it.  In the end, $250US for glass that's not even mine.  When I got my car back, they had left the flat tyre in the boot.

I am p***ed off because I STILL have Bronchitis and I need some antibiotics...BUT of course, doctors won't give anyone antibiotics because of the immunity worry...so I've just been signed off work for another bleeping week and I still fell like c**p.  I need to be at work :(...there is too much going on that I am missing :(...

As for the redundancy thing, I am very sorry to hear it Keeper :(.  I know it is awful timing and a huge worry but you never know, it may be an opportunity that you weren't expecting.  When one door closes, another one opens.  Good luck with your job search and I hope you enjoy this Christmas at home with your family.

Oh joy !  :tantrum: I am not working 27 nights anymore - it's only 25 ! And could I start my holiday next week 2 days early on friday and come back 2 days early - just in time to do another 7 nights in a row ! :swear:
I should have said no but like an idiot I said yes  :scratchhead: I am so tired at the moment anytime off is a bonus in fact I should be asleep now - but I can't.  :faint:
Hell I'm even letting Boy racers take liberties on the forecourt at night - maybe if they hit something and blow the place up I could get some proper rest.............. :thinks:

Different, yet related: the ignorant individuals (I work with children) who label "racist" anything that's not to their liking.  I'm frustrated by the trivialisation of a serious issue.  Then they turn round and spew homophobic idiocies.

people who use the phrase "i'm not racist but..."

people to dumb to realise when they are being prejudiced.

Then they'll top it off with the "...I have lots of black/asian friends so how can I be racist!". There was a real classic, I can't remember where I saw it, where the poster proudly said he even lets them use his bathroom!  :roll:

Generally if a post starts with "I'm not [insert random negative attribute] but..." I generally stop reading.
Wargaming: call it what you want, they're still toy soldiers and you're still playing with them.
