Having to support the company I left because all of their staff are too inept to fix things. Fucking eeeediats.



charge them your day rate


It’s a bit of an odd one, as I moved to company they buy software from. As an OEM supplier they have the same training as me, and in fact we’re on the same course I was. But everytime a customer site fucks up, they come running to me to help.

I was hoping to escape them.

^^ Smokey man! This is one of the few times you're well within your rights to tell them to fuck off ... I actually had the pleasure of doing this after I left my old job, it was glorious... for the love of god man, don't miss this chance!


Trouble is there are patient’s results at the end of it. As much as I’d love to, I’d rather not be responsible in a delay in someone’s treatment/possible death.

Reading the last couple of pages of this thread is depressing. After 20-years in the office industry, i'm so glad I got out. I do miss the 'office banter' but pathetic emails, highly negative, whinging jobsworths I do not.

I consider myself lucky I only have to spend a couple of days per week in the office and because I'm not part of a team I avoid all the office bullshit. Working from home and travelling round to other offices (where most people dont know me) is working rather well.

The jokes I had with people at my old company in Heathrow were on a level of this place back in the day. If those subjects were bought up regularly where I work now I'd be deported. Although I do work with a couple of English people and some seriously weird shit does get said. Try saying that to the South Africans, Americans etc and they'd think you're a mass murdering fuck up.

I know what you mean. I work for a company now and I'm their only European employee, which means no one knows what the fuck or when I'm doing anything which is great. I work in a shared office and the people are alright, but it's not the same as working in a big company.
 
I do miss working in an 800 person media company where the banter is flying and you can just go and flirt with different groups of girls you know in different departments when you get bored.
 
Probably not enough to outweigh not having to set an alarm in the morning though.

I worked briefly in a large office (550 people) and apart from the above-mentioned plentiful attractive ladies, and the superb canteen, it was shit.

I've generally worked in smaller "engineering offices" with no more than 20-30 people in them. I hate all this "cultural fit" bollocks you hear about with jobs nowadays, but smaller companies do seem to genuinely care about putting the right type of people in their offices. Massive companies just chuck any old twat in there, and are surprised when turnover of staff is so high. Obviously working in smaller engineering offices does admittedly mean a lack of nice women, I have to concede that one.

I work in an office of about 50 people and it's great. I used to work for Fujitsu and it was hell. Long time ago now.

I'm at an engineering company currently and there are women in my office. One of them is 51, been there 21 years. She told me that her daughter loves Jamaican boys and used to date them (get slammed). However, she was ever so slightly disappointed when the daughter had a baby and it was white, as she loves brown babies. She told me brown babies are the cutest thing ever and can't help but pinch their cheeks whenever she sees one.
 
It's not often I'm left speechless, that one stunned me to fuck bro.

A little bit IT Service Management/ITIL, a little bit project manager, a little bit trains, all within a railway/engineering environment. Basically it's standard middle management stuff. Basically, just imagine what job you'd expect Gutlessrhyme off the forum to do......that's it.

my nan passed away last night which is sad but she was 93 and didn't have to suffer for long - passed peacefully in her sleep from 'old age' after a week in hospital.
 
I went to see her yesterday and it was sad - struggling to breathe, couldn't talk but she could open her eyes and she knew I was there. I apologised for not going to see her as much as I could have over the last couple of years - she squeezed my hand a bit tighter which got me hard in the feels.
