1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Not if he has less than 6 months service (soon to be two years) or his contract says he gets it sooner. As long as its not discrimination they can get rid for any reason they like with no severance pay.

    Having worked in supermarkets in the same town as Fuji I can say that management level employees are, 99% of the time, just the least brain damaged staff on the shop floor. Even to the point of branch managers who earn up to £60,000 a year would struggle to perform well in a "normal" corporate environment. Supermarket work is almost always the only way someone of bellow average skill or intelligence will be able to forge something of a career for themselves.

    Don't take it personally, go off to university and come back with an entry-level job in a normal field knowing that you are the one they have to serve.

    Having once gone into a Tesco in the same town as Fuji I can say that 99% of employees have 6 fingers on each hand.

    I legit think 2 of the people I worked with were inbred. Definitely one of them, it was always lolzy watching the news with him during break because he'd ask what words like economics was and what ratios were. Also the stock market confused the fuck out of him, got really confused by the up and down arrows and the percentages.


    Sadly I no longer work for Sainsburys, I quit on wednesday because I'm starting at the LSE in like a month. In my last month there my boss basically just let me do whatever I wanted accept I had to be partnered up with someone the whole time.

    Was it the hail stones, flood, Morris dancing or the animal rights protests? Yesterday was not a good day for anyone in Cambridge.

    Leeds game in Peterborough, police escort from the A1 to the coach park 300 yards from the ground, then left to walk freely to the away end, walking side by side with the home fans.
