Dear IT - so you now send a daily "sanity check"? I have to say I'm amused by the irony...

Reckon I screwed up my science career by going into this f*****g discipline.  7 yrs I've been doing this c**p.  I sought advice before moving into it.... so bored.  MAY be able to get back into it again.

Marion Bartolli at Wimbledon. Top 15 player. QF of US Open last year. Quite fat.

Her profile on the official website says she's 1.7m tall and 63.2kg which is a BMI of 21.87.

Kvitovich has a very obvious pot belly but she's a former champion, so I guess even tennis players come in all shapes and sizes.

I accept the all shapes and sizes bit.
63 kilos, if that's the case then I'm taking my scales back.

Dear colleague: I'm getting sick of your hysterical emails that have the world and his wife copied in, espcially as some of them don't even concern me.

I'm particularly annoyed about that thing you keep asking me to do which I've told you three times before is not the responsibilty of this department. My other colleague said they had explained this to you for a fourth time yesterday . And why are you pleading with X and Y when you will have had an out of office message from them? They are still out of office.   

Now don't make me come down there!

Dear coleague I like you, but jeez can you moan. Ok we all find things irritating here, but it's the same stuff over and over again.

The new person may or may not start tomorrow. No we don't know where they're meant to be sitting if they do turn up. No we don't know what they can do it they're here, and yes we alk know the boss isn't around and neither is his PA so we'll have to deal with it. You've gone about this all week and it's something that may or may not be a problem!

Also dear Hotmail. What did you do to make your email so rubbish? I'd delete you but it's the email my uni friend's know and it'd bloomnig difficult to get them to send stuff to a new email account!

Wrong thread - I could say it but it wouldn't make sense

I am f******g frazzled - there, AND my swearing is getting worse each day.....

ROLL ON next Fri when we'll be on that plane.  Can't stand this work environment, really can't.

I continue to have a REALLY bad feeling about where I am working.  My gut is telling me that the Lead doesn't tolerate me at all.  I don't do things the way she would do them, therefore I don't measure up. 

All I hear is whispering coming from her office which is extremely off-putting, and I suspect it is about me.  She never says anything directly to me.  I get IMS messages requesting this, that and the other, and whenever I approach her about anything she seems irritated.

Also, it is the start of a new project phase which is a crucial time, and very stressful - a new experience for me.  She has brought another person on to the team who I know and have spoken to a number of times on a mentoring level, but I reckon its to apease the current 'situation' (not sure what that is exactly).  I'm being made to feel as though I am the kink in the chain.

She forgets that I came in to work when I was still really ill (she asked me to), have worked on 2 projects (so far) where the Leads were culturally opposed to women in the workplace (was a nightmare situation) - I brought this up with the management, and another project which finished prematurely.

Now, I'm working on stuff which is completely new territory, and apparently I don't measure up.....I am EXHAUSTED.

And to make matters worse, she and the other girl on the team have worked together before and shared an office, so they are always talking together.  The other person speaks the same language as said girl (Chinese) so hear that a lot.  Just don't fit in - the dynamics are all wrong.

JC, maybe you should start a thread called "things you want to say and do".

Facebook - no, I don't want to 'friend' my ex husband.

You there, hideous little toad man on another running forum, why don't you go and frequent the kind of 'adult' site that welcomes your (wet) dreams about having your cock in someone's mouth and tea bagging sessions.

So you've decided that next week will be your last volunteering here as you've got what you wanted out of it? Free internet access, lunch, fares paid to get into town and the occasional annoyance of some people trying to get you to do a few simple tasks properly? So long, there won't be much in any reference you might be looking for.

I don't think you are quite understanding the term "I can't take any more". 

I really can't.

Thanks Em.  Head and brick wall have clashed severely this weekend past.  Think head may be winning.

 

Throw one more Candy Crush invite at me.  Just one.  Go on.  I dare you.  Or send one of those ridiculous fridge magnet style posts my way.  Please.  I'm sure my actions will be defensible in any court, and I'm just gagging for a bit of violent release after the past six months.
