I still think you did well!
Cleaning is exhausting!

Ah ok! I love him. Though he doesn't even really play characters anymore. He is literally just nick cage in different films.

Sounds good!

nonperson 28-08-2022 08:17 PM

Yeah that's what I think. He's just himself. There's probably some things I like him in though but I can't remember any at the moment!

Cacoethes 28-08-2022 08:21 PM

He's in a great deal of things!
I believe he's also in a film about himself, as himself!

What happened to him?

Fingers crossed for your washing machine!

I did enjoy my coffee thanks!
I've just been craving coffee today. I had one with my McDonald's breakfast this morning. I'm only craving shop coffee though, not home coffee (which i have none of anyway)

I'm not up to anything else really.
Need to put washing away and shower but that's about it! It's the most chilled day I've had in a very long time!

Yeah i think a burner account is something else XD
But i know what you mean anyway!

Flat Gabe is safe and well, being held up by a magnet on my filing cabinet!

nonperson 28-08-2022 09:02 PM

Hi =P

I feel like I'm missing something here...

Gabe!!! Youíre alive!!
Also Foxtrot Oscar i canít remember if you use your name on here but hello! How are you?? So lovely to hear from you :)

not_so_insig 29-08-2022 07:23 AM

Morning all.

Dont forget that today is a Bank Holiday for most of the UK. Also Royal Mail are going on strike on Wednesday so if you wonder why you have very little post this week you know why.

Cacoethes 29-08-2022 08:03 AM

I have definitely not forgotten it's a bank holiday. Work is going to be rammed. Payday week last week+good weather+bank holiday=busy pub!
At least it's time and a half on bank holidays so extra money!

Pi.R^2 29-08-2022 08:25 AM

Golly, sounds stressful! Glad you’ll be rewarded with extra pay though :)
How many hours are you working?

Cacoethes 29-08-2022 08:55 AM

It will be!
I'm only doing 12-6 today so it's not too bad!

Oh ****. I wondered why no one else was here at work this morning!

Pi.R^2 29-08-2022 09:19 AM

Morning np! How are you today?

Cacoethes 29-08-2022 09:19 AM

Hey np!

nonperson 29-08-2022 09:44 AM

Morning. I'm ok so far. Just plodding on with work. How're you both?

Cacoethes 29-08-2022 09:50 AM

I'm ok.
Just a bit anxious about work because it's likely to be very busy

tamobhuuta 29-08-2022 10:32 AM

Good feelings to people at work today.

Pi.R^2 29-08-2022 10:32 AM

Hope it's at least manageable! Do you know yet if you're on with decent people or do you not find out until you get there?

Cacoethes 29-08-2022 10:32 AM

Thanks tamo

How are you?

Thanks Jenna!
I have looked at the rota and it seems ok.
I don't know who is going to be with me on bar though.

Pi.R^2 29-08-2022 10:33 AM

Oh hello there tamo! (I'm going to have to check as I feel weird every time I type it; do you use your name on here?) How are you today?

tamobhuuta 29-08-2022 10:37 AM

No I just go by tamo/tamobhuuta and i just use other people's screen names too.

I am ok, my big sister is coming round this afternoon :)

Pi.R^2 29-08-2022 11:08 AM

Oh that's nice! Enjoy seeing her :)

Cacoethes 29-08-2022 11:10 AM

One of my nails has come off
(The gel extension, not my actual nail)
I only got them done a couple of weeks ago :'(

Pi.R^2 29-08-2022 11:54 AM

Oh that's annoying! Although I think I would find having nail extensions annoying :P

nonperson 29-08-2022 12:00 PM

^ This =P

I can't even keep plasters on my fingers today let alone false nails. They do freak me out quite a lot actually... Just the look of them sometimes... *shudder*

Can it be glued back on again?

tamobhuuta 29-08-2022 12:24 PM

What they said.

Pi.R^2 29-08-2022 12:25 PM

Haha! It's fun at work too, although "but Miss, these are my real nails" is actually only my second least favourite argument, since "but Miss, these are my real eyelashes" arguments are even worse because I have no clue!

Unbreakable. 29-08-2022 01:25 PM

Are kids not allowed fake nails or eye lashes?
If so, what is the issue???

Like, I don't think I would care for them but I am unsure how it keeps anyone from learning.

Pi.R^2 29-08-2022 01:50 PM

1) The length of some false nails does actually impede writing and such and I think it maybe is an issue for some practical subjects? Also no one is doing the questions when they're faffing on with broken nails.
2) It's part of the British quirk of uniforms I guess - trying to make it more of a level playing field (no one sticks out as obviously poor because they're wearing cheap clothes etc) and to prepare children for adhering to a dress code in the workplace. Though a lot of countries don't have uniform and that's not a problem so I'm really not sure! I've never taught in a school without a uniform so I honestly don't know.
3) One thing I do agree with is that it teaches them how to deal with rules they think are dumb. If it's really important to you, challenge it through the appropriate channels (e.g. ask to meet with the head and discuss your point of view) otherwise sometimes we just follow rules we don't agree with. And that I think is a fairly good life lesson for Real Life.

I have zero defence for the eyelash thing though. How am I supposed to even know if they're real??? However if I don't enforce a rule it undermines my colleagues so I give it my best shot :P

nonperson 29-08-2022 02:06 PM

Pull them and find out?

I remember people coming into school with brightly dyed hair and being sent home. =P

one_step_closer 29-08-2022 02:08 PM

Hey everyone. I never do anything with my nails, it makes me feel like my hands aren't my own.

Pi.R^2 29-08-2022 02:26 PM

Lol np!
Poor Beckie isn’t finding many fellow nail enthusiasts here…

Unbreakable. 29-08-2022 02:55 PM

To be fair, I think a lot of work place dress codes are arbitrary too
All of that just sounds like they're being brain washed into following random rules and do as they're told

I also strongly disagree with the concept of needing to prepare four year olds for the work place over encouraging them to be comfortable and expressing themselves (which I think getting to pick what you wear does)

As to the issue with some having more money than others - according to at least one person who had to wear school uniform it did actually not have that effect as people kept finding ways around that.
Same person had to wear a too small school uniform too as their family couldn't keep up with their growth spurt. So it was actually the uniform making them look poorer than others.
Given how much uniforms seem to cost I feel it doesn't level the playing field at all.

I stop ranting now. Just to say I've never once heard a single good argument for uniforms.

I'm not into fake nails myself, but do admire them when they're well done.

Pi.R^2 29-08-2022 03:37 PM

Yeah, I think I mainly agree with you. But I also think that when rules exist you should either follow them or challenge them through the appropriate channels and lying to me about whether your nails are fake is not the appropriate channel :P Anyway, maybe we should save this debate for somewhere else!

How are you today?

Unbreakable. 29-08-2022 03:46 PM

Yeah, I agree that's a discussion for another day.
Just can't help but point out how much better Germans are at following rules without as much as a dress code :p

I don't really know what to do with myself today and I don't like it.
I had a "maybe" thing for the afternoon but nobody bothered letting me know either way so I didn't make any other plans.
So I'm just trying to motivate myself to do some light tidying in my room. And I have a graveyard of boxes to go through to see which ones might be useful for keeping and which ones to take downstairs to the recycling bin.

one_step_closer 29-08-2022 05:00 PM

You can do it, Unbreakable. It's a shame your maybe thing didn't happen unless you're not too bothered.

Unbreakable. 29-08-2022 05:40 PM

I'm not overly bothered either way and as I hadn't heard anything by yesterday I assumed it wouldn't happen but I prefer people letting me know

What are you up to today?

Pi.R^2 29-08-2022 05:55 PM

Haha, you are right that the Germans know how to follow rules! One of my favourite quotes from you is walking through a British shopping centre and saying "This is anarchy to me".

It is pretty damn rude to not let you know. *shakes fist* Hope you find something to occupy yourself with!

Hi Lindsay, how are you?

Cacoethes 29-08-2022 07:29 PM

Hey guys!
Finally home from work!

nonperson 29-08-2022 07:38 PM

How busy was it?

Cacoethes 29-08-2022 08:03 PM

It was actually ok. Steady flow of people, not rammed like bank holidays usually are!
I guess everyone is broke!

Unbreakable. 29-08-2022 10:24 PM

Glad it wasn't too bad!
It can be annoying to have a job that makes you dread holidays rather than looking forward to it.

Cacoethes 30-08-2022 08:00 AM

Yes it can be Lana!

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 30-08-2022 10:51 AM

Good morning :) how are you?

Cacoethes 30-08-2022 10:58 AM

I'm ok thanks


tamobhuuta 30-08-2022 12:09 PM

I'm ok. Just washed my hair. Are you up to much?

Cacoethes 30-08-2022 12:11 PM

Nope. Was meant to be meeting someone for lunch but she cancelled.
Currently watching a very confusing mini series on Netflix called Echoes

one_step_closer 30-08-2022 04:44 PM

That's a shame your lunch was cancelled, Beckie. Will you be rearranging?

What have you all been up to today?

Cacoethes 30-08-2022 06:39 PM

Yeah we're going to rearrange

I went to pilates, asda and i have glow beatz soon

Have you been up to much lindsay?

Cacoethes 31-08-2022 08:04 AM

Morning everyone

Zurg 31-08-2022 08:30 AM
