Dear boos, when three members of staff plus on ex-staff member go out for dinner, have a couple if jugs if cocktails and a couple of bottles of wine, and round off the evening saying 'he's just a knobhead,' you should take a look at yourself.

In seriousness there are three of us working in your team full time, and the other two have talked about handing in their notice. I don't realty want to stay once my contract is over, and every problem in our team can be traced back to you. The trouble is, you can be a nice guy and a good boss when you 're in the right mood. But we shouldn't have to creep around on egg shells watching your moods. FFS you're a psychiatrist so you'd think you'd have some people skills!

Dear darling daughter,

You were really crap at netball today.  Why did you keep dropping the ball?

People coming through the door behind me: don't fecking dawdle. Keep up or don't expect me to hold it open for you. Simples.

Catalin: I had a manager like that. Eventually I stopped talking to her completely unless she spoke to me first. I was sick of being ignored when I said "good morning" to her on her "off" days. God she was a hideous bitch.

Catalin, its not uncommon for people working in mental health to have mental health issues themselves.  He/She might have bi-polar.  Or she might just have excessive PMT.

Please don't put pictures of your baby or ultrasound scan on Facebook i really don't care. There are millions of babies born every year and yours is nothing special. It's just going to grow into another screaming brat to annoy me while i'm at Sainsburys.

I thought the whole purpose of facebook was to annoy people with inane shite about your life that probably no-one would care about absent facebook,

I absolutely fecking hate Faceache.

A lot of self indulgent pap. People basically promoting their own brand and presenting the most sensationalist version of their actually mundane lives to anyone who can be bothered to read their nonsense.

It annoys me everytime someone bloody asks me "are you on Facebook?"

No I'm bloody not!!! I have actual friends that I go to the pub with and hang out with. I don't need 600 "friends" mainly consisting of people I haven't seen for nearly a decade, people from school who I never liked anyway (and they never bothered to speak to me) and people I have never met who happen to share the same view as me about what colour one should paint ones living room or whatever just to massage my ego and contribute further to a culture of "me, me, me".

To Facebook in general I say.. just f**k off.

ah good facebook...
Is it peoples first thought when sitting in Costas to put "coffee at Costas , ahhh" on facebook? Mine is always, why such a miserly packet of biscuit?
or sweaty after a run, I know, I'll log on and put "6 miles done" and then attach a garmin output graph with mile splits, elevation, max/min speed and, as we really care, a haphazard line of the route.
or just landed in Tenerife, I know, I'll post a photo of what an airport somewhere hot looks like (and tell us all your gaff is empty, so we can go round and nick the bikes out your shed)
and please post a picture of your new Kayanos, I really struggle to visualise Asics' finest... 

I'll add I'm on FB only for the club's running related activities, the fact that you have to wade through 99.9% of crap to get to the interesting (!) stuff is what makes me think why bother...

and don't get me started on blogs...

'Just landed oin Tenerife'.

Or 'just left my house completely unattended for at least a week if its a Sunday or Monday, or at least a weekend if its Friday or very early Saturday.  Feel free to take what you can'.

Just in case someone didn't get that picture of my dinner i'll put it on Twitter aswell just to be sure. 

08/02/2013 at 11:33

I can sort of understand the thinking behind taking a picture of dinner if your at The Kitchin, or Claridges (but not why you'd want to post it), but the Harvester / Pizza Express ?? Beggars belief

08/02/2013 at 11:38

I took a picture of my dinner at the Harvester.  But only because it was deeply undercooked chicken and I was about to be regurgitating it in the car park.  Really  not a pleasant experience.  They had a rush on the spit roast chicken and had 2 more on the spit than they were supposed to.  Food Standards weren't impressed, and they gave us compensation.  In the form of Harvester vouchers 

Needless to say we didn't go there again.  Other ones were fine, but not that one.  Woodford Green high road, if anyone's interested. This was about 4 years ago though.

08/02/2013 at 11:40

Hahaha! I reckon it would be seriously bad form to be seen taking a picture of your dinner in Claridges anyway.

If I was having dinner with someone and they started updating Facebook at the table and messaging etc I would be sorely tempted to grab the phone from them shout "ABRACADABRA" and make it vanish out of the nearest window.

I could start a whole new rant about manners. Or more specifically knuckle draggers that don't have any. And it's not just Chavs either.

08/02/2013 at 11:43

Mr B E - but did you post it on FB?
Taking a picture because the food is awful is one thing, sharing it with 600 people you claim to know is another...

08/02/2013 at 11:45

I only have 20 friends on FB, and I hadn't joined at that point.

Oh, and I am specifically not friends with any of my family.

Thought this was supposed to be anonymous and unfindable, not saying it directly to the people concerned...

To my gobby new team mate. You have been doing this particular job for many years so I would like to learn from you as much as I can. I, however, have been dealing with this product a lot longer than you so am happy to share my knowledge with you. This combination should make a strong team. Bearing in mind that I started on this particular project before you I know a bit more about it than you so why do you think it is ok for you to come in and take over the running of the project, changing things that I have done without speaking to me first, going off and having meetings with our boss and not involving me ? I replied to one of your emails but the reply wasnt what you wanted to hear was it ? That was just my first message to you to tell you that if you continue to carry on in this way dont think for one minute that I am going to jump how high you tell me to or that I will just roll over and do what you have decided on your own. We are meant to be working as a team. Next time I will stitch you up so if anything goes wrong you will be left to sort the sh1t out on your own. You used to do the managers job but recently said you couldnt deal with the pressure so why do you think now that you can suddenly start managing everything and everyone yet you are not actually the project manager for what we are working on ? And another thing, I dont want to hear you laughing when you are in another office which is down the corridor and round the corner so keep it buttoned. And I always know when you are arriving in the office as you stamp your way down to our part of the office which alerts everyone to your impending arrival. For someone so small you dont half make a lot of noise.

Dear future boss: thanks for that. Still as clear as mud then?
