    Dude what?

    Didn't you just come back from a lovely family vacation and been together 10+ years?

    What happened!?

    Royal Mail Fail arriving without my parcel AGAIN! As always, the Recorded tracking info (not really tracking, I know) states the item was posted and is being 'progressed through their network for delivery'. Great.

    Stuck in a dead end job, with no future prospects with this company, pay is abysmal (barely keeping solvent atm, even after trying to sort out my finances).

    Trying to look for a new job, but I don't know what I want to do, or have the qualifications that a lot of people are asking for.

    That or the few places I really want to work at are not recruiting (Fire/Police) or cutting down on recruiting and increasing the entry requirements (Armed Forces) (Biggest problem for me with the AF is motivation in keeping/getting fit, otherwise when I applied a few years back they really wanted me).

    Best advice i can give.... "Just Do It"

    Need to get fit? Just Do It. Need a new Job... Just do it.

    Even if you think you don't have the qualifications for a perticular job, apply anyway and suggest reasons why you are suitable for the job. I know a lot of agencies put high qualifications for the jobs they advertise just to weed out the rif-raf and scare people off. Be confident and you can change the things you currently despise.

    If you can replace it with some kind of cool mechanical foot, I wouldn't hesitate to get the tools out. ;)

    I found out recently that when i was 12 after breaking my ankle, i should've had physiotherapy. The fact i never did coupled with my collapsed arches means i have to have foot surgery because my bad arches is making the ankle worse.

    I'm working nights the next 3 days, so I ask CarTakeBack.com to pick up my old car today, so I wouldn't be overly tired, and would only be up for a few hours and could then go back to sleep.

    The pick up was meant to be between 0800 and 1200. I phoned up at 1210, and was told that the driver should have phoned if there were any delays. Still no call back from them or the driver, I want to go back to bed so I'm not falling asleep at work, but no.

    On the basis that time keeping isn't a major thing any more, I'm meant to start work at 2200, I'll be there at 2300. Because, ya'know, it isn't important. Apparently.
