Fucking parents.

Just a bit of history here before I go into why the parents are “Fucking parents”. When I was a lot younger my parents split, I was left with my bitch-whore of a mother who abused me in terms of religious (catholic) abuse for many years, she’s dead now (YaY!), and I’m still healing from the mental scars those years of abuse left me with.

My father on the other hand moved to France with my Step-Mother, that was about 25 years ago; now they’re moving back. Anyhow, moving back to 20 miles down the road, moving into a house which is going to turn into a “4th Bridge” project, where by they’re already well into the cycle of continual and eternal DIY on an epic basis.

He wants me to drive a 40 mile round trip on Sunday morning to unload a van. Yup, that’s right, unload a fucking van. Now I would never dream of asking someone this, yet for him, in his own mind, he is not a bad person for it – in his mind, it’s a normal request. To add insult to this, he wants it done at stupid o’clock. Yesterday he called to confirmed this and was surprised I wasn’t looking forward to this, and in fact I had a negative attitude (Is he real?). I work for a living, have only two days off per week to sleep in and spend with My Wife; he fails to see that. So “Fucking parents” – there you have it.

I’ll continue this thread when the van unloading has been done. He is still sulking that I’m not jumping for joy at this “opportunity”, I guess it’s a generation-thing.

Stick it too the bastards!

HaHa! 🙂

NSS: Claim that children’s religious freedoms breached by scrapping of free transport to faith schools rejected by secularists

Love the way that bint says they’ll remember this ‘attack’… We’re not attacking them (Even though that might be the right thing to do), we’re just taking away their special rights they’ve weasel’d out of the bleeding-hearted leftie-wankers in the past.

Israel and Pat Condell

Pat Condell and Israel.  Not saying anything, he seems to say it all.  I’m an Atheist, but can’t help see the point which Israel is making in defending itself at the moment.  It’s odd though, in the UK, the public opinion of the Israel / Gaza war is in favour of Gaza; I think it’s the mass of bleeding hearted leftie wannabe-wankers who can only see the stats in terms of deaths…  It makes me laugh when the same people are muslim-bashing when any terrorist attack comes on the news.

Anyhow, it’s not my war, so this is the last I’ll say on the subject!

 

Weekend almost here, up 50 quid!

The day in work is in it’s last 10 minutes or so. Not the worst week ever, all considered. I’ll have to spend some time getting used to the idea my manager isn’t going to be around much before he goes in September. Working unsupervised hasn’t historically bothered me much, I always get the work done, but am always tempted to take the piss with longer than strictly allows breaks etc. Today wasn’t too bad, only a short shopping trip the local Lidl store in the lunch before parking up and reading The I newspaper for a while.

I won a raffle in work today, the prize is a shiny cheque for £50, which will make waiting for payday in two weeks a more bearable experience and also allow a weekend meal at The Three Elms. Looking forward to their Surf, Turf and Super Cluck!

The coming weekend holds a shopping trip, some housework, perhaps a quantity of White Rum, a meal out, and some movie / PC gaming time; as always, the weekend will be too short…

Changes afoot

Whilst I’m not going to reveal details of my exact job, company I work for etc, I will post regarding work – I don’t do this on any other I format, so only here!

I work in tech support for a large organisation, am a sole individual on a site with a few hundred users, plus have a couple more buildings with another few I hundred users to support. The job involves getting support tickets from the users via the service desk, then fixing the problems or escalating them to specialist support teams elsewhere. Of course, as with other roles in this environment I get a lot of walk up issues to fix in person.

Up to this point in time I’ve enjoyed a traditional support structure and a good working relationship with my manager, sometimes in person, but for the last nine months, remotely. This is the crux of the changes – an entire layer of middle management has been removed, going forward all of the little teams loose their normal manager and report into one person, in another city… Why is this a problem? No local management who know who we are, what we do, and why we exist!

So here I am with an ever decreasing amount of work allocated in charge of supporting a few hundred users… The highlights of my day today will be chatting to people in the office, sorting this new blog out, watching episodes of the TV show Fringe on my iPad, and finally probably taking lunch…

There are the usual cliches with my job, the usual ‘have you turned it off and on again’ moments and the usual evil turns where I might not exactly fix a problem for any given rude numptard (Numpty-Retard – it’s a Welsh thing)… Today I’m not feeling too bad as it’s Friday, the day I live for, well, to be specific 16:00 🙂 So in summary the day is looking up and the minutes tick by….

Going forwards I will use real names here, or nicknames as I see fit, I will never use full names, after all the Internet is a small place sometimes!
