  1. I'm back working in the corporate world of fucking shite and detesting every second of it. I've been scheduled to work on Good Friday (our department is a live analytical one which has to function 7 days a week) and I've discovered that it's at flat rate. When did that become OK? I'm working for a massive company who historically paid time and a half or time off in lieu for bank holiday work but it appears that any rights workers once had have been utterly steamrollered. Am I just a whining twat to be saying I should expect additional pay or should we all just accept that we're now a nation of proles doing as we're told?
  2. Sven back in football as manager of the Ivory Coast. I know he's not the most popular, but I love it the way he goes from job to job taking a pure wedge and getting his end away in the process without caring what anybody thinks of him. Fucking legend. Eriksson hired to deliver 'honourable' Ivory Coast World Cup - International, Football - The Independent Eriksson hired to deliver 'honourable' Ivory Coast World Cup Former England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson has been charged with ensuring Ivory Coast deliver an "honourable" performance at this summer's World Cup after he was last night appointed to lead the team in South Africa. The veteran Swede succeeds Vahid Halilhodzic, who left the post in the wake of the Elephants' disappointing quarter-final exit at the hands of Algeria during the African Nations Cup at the start of the year. Former Real Madrid boss Bernd Schuster and former Wales and Manchester City manager Mark Hughes were both recently linked with the job, however 62-year-old Eriksson's experience worked in his favour. A statement released last night by the national federation, the FIF, said: "Aware of the great expectations of our population who have taken a keen interest in the matter, the executive committee focused its choice on Mr Sven-Goran Eriksson. "The Swede has been, among others, coach of England and Mexico. He is an experienced technician who has been proven. "His mission is to lead our team during this World Cup, and to ensure that there is an honourable participation in a competition reserved for the top 32 football nations in the world, and it obviously will be difficult. "Therefore, the executive committee of the FIF appeals to the sacred union between the 'Elephants' and their coach." The FIF have not decided on the future leadership of the team beyond the World Cup, with Eriksson's appointment likely to be a short-term measure. Eriksson's last job was as director of football at Notts County, who he left in February, but he has recent international experience having been boss of Mexico until being sacked in April 2009. He led England from 2001 until 2006, twice steering the team to World Cup quarter-finals. Ivory Coast have been handed a difficult World Cup group draw against Brazil, Portugal and North Korea. Their World Cup squad will include Premier League stars Didier Drogba, Salomon Kalou, Emmanuel Eboue and Kolo Toure, plus a host of other players playing at a high level in Europe, and they had been fancied to make a big impact in the first World Cup to be played in Africa. Their draw has lowered expectations, though. They begin their campaign against Portugal on June 15 in Port Elizabeth, before playing Brazil on June 20 in Johannesburg. Eriksson will hope his team remain in with a chance of reaching the last 16 by the time they take on North Korea in Nelspruit on June 25.
  3. Where would you prefer to be? I have a job I love, work with good people and the hours are fucking great. One week I work 3 days, the next I only work 2. Yes it's shifts, long days etc but it really suits me. I've been asked to apply for a post to sort out a shit hole of a home. There are lots of problems there and the challenge really appeals to me. However not having anyone there I can trust (things are very political!) and having to go in and start sacking people staright up makes me question it. The job I have now I love, I'm pretty much given free reign to run the home as I see fit so this new post (part from the pricks working there) wouldn't be that much of a change. £10,000 a year more is very tempting but I'd have to commute an hour a day instaed of 8 minutes, work 5 days a week instead of my current pattern and not be as 'free' as I currently am. Ideas?
