Tell him you risk summoning a demogorgon and that will make Winona Ryder cry.

Thanks for the advice. But sorry for posting it in here, I thought I was in the board game thread.

Depends on the reason you no longer want to play with him. If it's because of a change in your circumstances (reduced social time, travelling costs etc) then just be honest and let him down gently. If it's because he's a smelly bumlick and you don't like him them you shouldn't worry about hurting his feelings so much and just make up some excuse.

Start an argument with him and end it with "I am never talking to you again". Job done.

Yes?

Are you saying that only one type of person can use it and nobody else can?

Yep, only people that have been labelled a bumlick by an insane conspiracy theorist mentalist can use it. Justice will prevail.

I don't know what's wrong with me. I really need a job but I feel relief that I missed a call this morning from what I suspect is a job I applied for but don't really want. At this point I just need anything so I really shouldn't feel like that. :?

Edit - Received an email from them anyway and I have an interview next Wednesday.

You gotta love whenever work scanners aren't working properly but nobody tells anyone this, or leaves a note. I spent about 2 hours getting record documents scanned into a scanned images folder for others to sort, only to be told that the top loader scanner doesn't actually work and hasn't worked for the last few days. It has scanned the documents as blank PDFs. Seeing as I didn't have security access for the scanned images folder, I couldn't see this.

strawberry floating pissed off that I have to do this again because no one could be arsed writing a strawberry floating note.

Where's the armless bloke from Arrested Development when you need him.

Nothing like a short telephone interview out of the blue to start your day, started off terribly as they caught me off guard but ended half decently (I think so anyway). Would be nice if I'd done well enough to get a face to face interview but it's not the end of the world if I haven't.

I have only ever had one telephone interview. Phone woke me up at 8:45 and I was greeted with the worst hangover ever.

Still managed to ace it 8-)

Never done a phone interview, I detest phones so I don't imagine it would go well.

Not really had many "proper" interviews either. The one for my current job was interesting as when we got to the room someone had stolen it for a meeting so we ended up sitting on picnic benches outside doing it, was much more relaxed and pleasent.

I would have felt a lot better about it had they said the next stage would have been a telephone interview, they didn't. They said they'd be in touch via email so a phone call really caught be off guard and I tend to suffer from nerves quite badly in situations such as these so I probably came across terribly to start with. I generally hate talking on the phone as well to make matters worse.

Just had an email from senior management with the subject “Celebrating Women” as its International Woman’s Day. A lot of bollocks but it ends with “please take a moment to let the women you work with know how you appreciate having them as a colleague”....best start going round telling each woman here I appreciate them...

My company is HQ’d in Dubai so all the international women’s day things from corporate have been filtered out by the regional office, which is probably for the best.
