Today's an absolute write off. Just want it to be the weekend so I don’t have to feel more guilty about sitting around doing almost strawberry float all.

I'm busy as strawberry float today. Spoke to a colleague about the amount of work he has, and I seem to be way ahead of him. So that's okay, I guess.

Hey now, I'm skipping loads of vital steps in the name of efficiency.

Had my first performance review today and been told I'm doing well and above average for this stage so at least that's some good news. The only room for improvement i had was rushing too much actually, think I've just been too eager to please and made a couple of stupid minor mistakes in the process.

One of our new nurses has been with us for a month and called in sick three times. One headache, one cold and a daughter with a rash who needs to see the GP. I don't think she likes it here which is good because she'll be getting bumped pronto at this rate.

Please don't let this end!

A wise man once said that existence is like a dancer forever moving to an eternal song, and for this dancer, as it is for all dancers, balance is the key.

They all think the new guy is a bellend ;)

I'm not entirely sure what that means but I had another great day today, so I'll take it!

This is the fun part about working remotely and your bosses are doing no work or completely strawberry floated everything up. You're left wondering what the strawberry float to do.

You're preaching to the wrong choir. ;-)

My point still stands 0600 - 1800 is better than 0800 - 2000

Pretty much. I've been using the time between docs where no work has been going on to do a python course I've been meaning to do.

Work today was strawberry floating hell. Left on Friday (two weeks ago) with only 70 tickets overall in the queue. Came in today to 310.

We somehow managed to get it to 200, but the phones didn't stop ringing at all. strawberry float January and the wankers who all call in after Christmas wanting everything done they were tooo strawberry floating lazy to call in about.

Take a call today from someone who literally said "this has been happening for days and now I'm really frustrated" - CALL BEFORE THEN RATHER THAN TAKING YOUR ANGER OUT ON ME.

strawberry float, I need a holiday to get over one days work.



The smile from Roy in this scene is everyone in my office lmao. It's so hard to be nice and kind to people who care very little about you or how stressed you are.
