Working in an office

Since I jacked the pub in I had a couple of offers to go back to an office environment. I'm supposed to be launching an online real ale business but it's been getting on top of me a bit. The minefield of licensing, premises, cost reduction. I've fucked it all off til next year, decided well against an office return and I'm currently on my way to Birmingham to collect my van. Start delivering for Amazon tomorrow. Self employed, pick and choose my hours and the money is decent. Fuck da office. 

Good luck mate. If you get that right you'll make an absolute fortune.

Yeah it's my goal but after the lockdown, leaving the pub and having a massive forced change to my life I need some structure and a bit less stress. Amazon will keep me earning decent money til I'm in the right frame of mind to pick up the real ale business sometime next year.

For sure mate. Seems like you got out of the pub at the right time. My dad ran pubs all his career pretty much and it was a horrible, stressful existence. Long hours, having to deal with dickhead pissed up arseholes and not exactly the most lucrative rewards.

 

He fancied himself as a bit of a Brian Flanagan as a youngster then a Doug Coughlan as he got older.

Best of luck with things Mike. Hope - and am sure - you'll be sound mate.

 

It was a bank holiday here yesterday and I needed to finish off some work so I decided for the first time in months to head into the office.  No one the train and Sydney CBD empty. That was about 7 am. I came out at 3.30pm and it looked like normal. I enjoyed being back at my desk and the lack of distractions to be honest. It's only a twenty minute journey as well. Still happy at home but I did a lot of work with the extra computer screens and set up in the office.

Same here really - I've quite liked being back in the office when I've had to go in, with no distractions and a big screen. However that isn't normal - I'm usually getting loads of distractions and the computers are always playing up in "normal times".

 

We're taking a service we deliver online and over the phone solely online. This will mean less people needed on the phone and in the office. It's fine for me because I've written the plan and I look after the website. However for those who man the phones the worry about my job would be at the back of my mind.

I've been working from home since March, parked in the young lads bedroom on a small desk. It was wrecking my head so I decided to build an outdoor office space right beside the house in the only free space left in the garden. Just a small 8x6 room. I looked up getting one made and the prices were mental and some that were reasonable had waiting times of up to 3 months. 

 

I initially thought I'd bitten off more than I could chew but it's turning out quite well and I'm proud that I've actually done it myself. I've even decided I'm going to put a TV in there and watch the unmentionable in peace without the little ones wrecking my head.

This is where I'm at. Still loads to do but I'm getting there. Coat of grey paint on it now but need to add fascia board and guttering before focusing on the inside.

I’m in the office today. Only me on a floor that should seat 40.  Better remember to get dressed again when I go out for dinner.

Great work that zonko.

Although once you’ve got the snooker table in there I’m not sure there’s going to be much room for a desk.

Proper enjoying the new job. Tiring but I'll soon get used to it. Loving the milfy housewives around Skipton.

In their infinite wisdom, our workplace is getting rid of all the phones and making us use Skype for Business. So if I want to make or receive a call I need to fire up the laptop first and wear a headset like some call centre monkey.

    • The Caradoc is fucking grim now, type of place you wipe your feet coming out.
    • I definitely see an improvement in him and Alisson's help,particularly distribution,is obviously rubbing off on him. His real test will be reacting to his mistakes. We know Alisson is brilliant at that while Adrian is shit. I hope he is like the former.
    • I've no idea, it's been called that for a couple of years, I think it's been done out recently? When I'm home I usually call in the Red Lion, a dump, to see the mate but it's closed now. I was in Benos about 2 years ago, it was OK and I was with a few lads, one knew me but it was only when I was going back into town I realised it was Foxy, hadn't seen him for 30 odd years.  In about 81 they filmed in the Caradoc, a mate was in there, later died through the gear, with a few others, they interviewed one lad and said what do you do with your day, he said I have a beer smoke some pot and play a bit of pool, then I go home for me tea and come back again and do the same, something like that.  When the Red closed last year I heard all the pool tables etc were taken down to the Caradoc. The fella who done the Pacific up last year was supposed to be doing the same to the Red but isn't now which is a shame as it could be good and not much around there these days, had some great times there years ago, good bands.  The Kents has gone and turned into a shit hole Trivelles, they started calling that Ma Kents , a load of bollocks.  My mate lives off Sandy Rd and I sometimes met him in the Claremont, also closed, a bit grim as well.  Apparently a few of the mates bevvy down South Rd now so I'll have to have a look next time I'm up. 
    • I thought it was just another sad blue making shit up to make himself feel better but looking at his previous tweets he just seems like a full time wind up artist, even taking the piss out of Everton at various points.    He's done a good job of hooking reds with the bait, blues also making themselves look daft for believing it, and even the occasional Manc.    I think I'll be let this one slide because the whole situation is quite amusing and he doesn't seem to take it very seriously. Top bantz.
