Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

Holy gooseberry fool, that is so true. Really does happen every stinking time I insert a USB cable.

That does happen a lot. Best method is to look out for the USB symbol on the top side of the plastic bit of the USB end.

Doesn't help if the USB ports are sideways though. :x

Emergency tax.

I don't understand it at all. Emergency tax has never happened to me before - until my last two jobs, and current job.

I worked two jobs in retail before I got the job I wanted. An important condition was that I had to relocate nearer. Until my contract is up on the previous place, I am paying two sets of rent, but I knew on my new salary I could afford to get by (just).

What I didn't expect was for 30% of my wage to be deducted for "emergency tax" - despite having already been EMERGENCY TAXED THE gooseberry fool OUT OF in my last two jobs. This is because I didn't have a p45 from my previous employer. Neither of my last two employers got me a P-whatever in time for me starting the new job, so my money has been taken from me again.

Why the strawberry float is the emergency tax rate higher than normal? Why is taking more of my money an emergency? Surely it'd make more sense to be charged the lower tax rate temporarily while your tax code is worked out - then on the off chance it's the correct amount, the employee isn't left out of pocket for their hard work.
Because they've taken more than I anticipated, I've gone into the overdraft limit to get charged interest. Only just got my tax refund from the previous two jobs. Wasted 15 minutes on the phone today to be told that they don't know when I'll get refunded on my latest overpayment of tax.

Bunch of strawberry floating cockbag dick faces. Whoever decided this was a good system needs to painfully die in a smelly dark hole.

Fraping.

It's just, so gooseberry fool. Come up with something original if you're going to do it in the first place. Jesus, I thought that whole fad wanted to die out a year ago anyway. :|

Emily: is the tax code they've put you on 747L W1/M1, or BR?

If the former (which is the emergency tax code), you're likely not losing very much. It's going on BR when you get screwed and lose your tax allowance. Lots of myths about emergency tax...

USTV download links that aren't named correctly, I'm sick of downloading stuff only to discover that it's actually something different.

Right, some selfish so and so committed suicide by jumping out of the top floor of our flats at the weekend. SO i feel for the poor sod on the first floor who had to wake up to a dead body outside his living room window...who also now has a flower shrine under that window (good luck selling that flat now) but the thing that annoys me about it is that some berk has left a proper RIP IN PEACE letter along with two unopened cans of red bull, so he can 'FLY WIV DA ANGLEZ'
