This is why it helps to have an understanding employer, and have larger-than-letterbox parcels delivered to work.

On the other hand, I know someone who had an Xbox360 delivered when they were out, the delivery guy signed for it himself and left it by the door. It was there when this person got home, but with absolutely no security. So she called the company and told them it hadn't been delivered. She got another one.



Yeah I tend to have most parcels delivered to work anyway but if the delivery is due towards the end of the week I have them delivered at home.

I did the same as the person you know with a Nokia 3310 many years ago, I ordered one for my then girlfriend on her birthday and the delivery guy just left the box in our open porch. It was still there but I thought fuck it that's not on. I wouldn't do the same thing these days but if I was to find out that the delivery driver was out of pocket or had even lost his job I wouldn't really give a toss. Serves them right for breaking their employer's rules and basically leaving my stuff out in the street.



I always get my parcels delivered to work too - my manager doesn't bat an eyelid, and usually just asks, 'anything exciting?'. Staff get so much delivered there - including bikes. I've been doing a lot of online shopping at the moment because I'm mostly house bound, but I'm still getting them delivered to my workplace for the exact reason you've highlighted. Royal mail can be twats. I got a book delivered to the flat because I figured it would be a safe bet since the last one fitted through the letterbox fine, but I came back to my flat yesterday to find one of those slips. Not their fault in this case, mine for not being there. But who's to say they would have knocked or alerted me anyway.

Will have to wait until Thursday when I return to my work to hand in another doctor's line.

I get the impression I will have to have another week off as it is taking longer to recover from the slice and dice than I hoped. [&o]

How long have you been off for so far?

I'm really stressing out about being off work for this long already - I've never been off sick for an extended period of time from any job. Thankfully my manager has been super nice about it all, but I called the hospital last week to chase them up on my latest referral to the next specialist, and was told if it was considered 'urgent' i'll be seen very soon, and if 'routine', i can be waiting for up to 3 months.

THREE MONTHS.

I can NOT be off work for a further 3 months. Not to mention that the 3 months doesn't include the 4 weeks I've been off for already, and the fact it would just be an appointment at the end of that with a specialist and not an actual operation.

I have to give them a call back next week to find out.

In the mean time day to day life is becoming increasingly harder for me. When I return to the docs this week, even if the hospital has given me a far away date, I'm going to really lay it on thick. I can't be waiting for another 3 months.




sanchia -> RE: I am pissed off because... (24/11/2012 3:29:14 PM)

Four weeks so far and I am going insane.[sm=52.gif]

It was going to be three months for me as well but lucky for me they had some private funding which brought the whole process down to about three months overall. I empathise with you as it is an terrible thing to have something out of your hands and being left in limbo.




Sway -> RE: I am pissed off because... (24/11/2012 3:39:00 PM)

Well I'm really, really hoping when I call them next week they tell me I'm going to be seen to soon. I can't bear the thought of waiting for 3 months, nevermind having to 'enjoy' Christmas when I'm in this shape.

My folks have started looking into the possibility of going private if the hospital tells me they won't be seeing me soon.

Do you at least have some kind of answer on the 'what', or confirmation?

Yeah I do thanks, it is what I'd previously said in a pm. So thankfully it's not life-threatening, but it's getting worse as time goes on and I'm really feeling the effects now.




sanchia -> RE: I am pissed off because... (25/11/2012 10:12:39 AM)

It is blowing a gale outside so I cannot get outside. Even if I can get out I cannot go far and I am so bored and cannot find a single thing to distract me. [:@] (Admittedly not as bad weather as in the West but still nasty).

I never realised being stuck at home was such a terrible thing until this enforced period of it.

I feel your pain, buddy. Last time it was blawin' a hoolie up here, I forced myself to just wrap up and head out into it - I couldn't handle staying inside any longer!

Know what I'm doing a lot of right now? I'll pack a book and head to my nearest coffee shop - about 10 minutes away. It's not far, so it means I can manage the walk, and gives me a bit of fresh air on the way there. Then I'll sit and read my book for a few hours, or meet a friend there. It might still be inside, but it's a different environment and there are other people buzzing around you even if you're not interacting with any of them.





sanchia -> RE: I am pissed off because... (26/11/2012 11:30:40 AM)

Two more weeks of brain numbing boredom ahead. If I had realised it would take this long to recover I may have just stuck with the tablets.




steffols -> RE: I am pissed off because... (26/11/2012 11:40:38 AM)

Get your crafting hat one. I have three cross stitches on the go at the minute, I barely have time for!




sanchia -> RE: I am pissed off because... (26/11/2012 11:47:47 AM)

I may get back to the foreign language attempt although I found it less then rewarding.




Sway -> RE: I am pissed off because... (26/11/2012 1:58:39 PM)

Holy freakin' fucksicles.

Does anybody here have any experience with private healthcare? Because we're strongly considering going private for me.

I had my scan at the hospital 2 weeks ago and the woman said I'd need to be seen by a specialist fairly soon and it looks as though I'll need an operation. Two weeks later and I still hadn't heard anything from them so I called them myself this morning. Apparently my referral is still with the consultant at the moment and they decide whether it's urgent or not. If they regard it as urgent then I'll be seen soon, if not I am currently on a waiting list to be seen in FEBRUARY.

I simply can not wait until February to be seen by a specialist. Nevermind then being scheduled for surgery after that. At this rate I won't get the op until next Christmas.

I am currently wearing maternity clothes, my stomach has swollen so much. I can barely lie or sit down comfortably, and walking anywhere is exhausting. I can't go around in this state until February. It all seems so backwards too, since if they were to operate now it would surely be easier than waiting until it gets worse/bigger.

Sanch, I've been tinkering around with Airfix, you should get somebody to buy you some!




elab49 -> RE: I am pissed off because... (26/11/2012 2:03:52 PM)

Only how expensive it is - we were looking before my dad's tests finally got into gear. You can search for your local private hospital and give them a call -they should send you a quote.

http://www.treatmentabroad.net/cosmetic-abroad/

The pull down list on the left hand side offers anything up to cardiology so it's not just plastic surgery - it may be an option as well.

Have you found an online support group that deals with the treatment? Eg for dad there was a specific cancer charity who had an amazingly helpful online presence. They also offer advice and often have forums - you'll likely find a lot more informed suggestions if there is somewhere like that.




elab49 -> RE: I am pissed off because... (26/11/2012 2:06:03 PM)

Also, if I remember right, they didn't take across notes and wanted to reperform tests themselves - which was a pointless nonsense as it was probably the same damn doctor doing it and it was available on the medical records.

Thanks for the help. I think I'm going to talk to my doctor about it when I see him on Wednesday.

I haven't found one particularly good website on it - seems to be a lot of posts on random forums all over the internet, and I can't find anything current that I could get into. I posted in one forum last week and still haven't had a response to that post, - a lot of the posts I'm finding are old or on disused threads.

I'm getting sick of sounding like a broken record too. It's all I can talk/think about at the moment, and it's doing my head in.

I may well consider that.

I had private funded by the Local Healthcare Trust and from start to finish it was about three months with the first consultation about three weeks after I was put forward for it. You could fund the consultant via private and then any further treatment by NHS just to get the ball rolling which was something I considered until I lucked out on my one. The downside is some Healthcare Trusts insist on their own assessment even if a private consultation is made which means you end up back at square one just with a big expense on top. You need to check your local healthcare rules on that as the consultation in my instance would have been about 200 but the operation 10,000-14,000.

Rebel scum -> RE: I am pissed off because... (27/11/2012 2:00:42 PM)

I'm currently pissed off with some of the questions asked in Graduate Scheme applications. I know they're there to give people a chance to wax lyrical about how amazing they are, but Christ...
"Describe a time you triumphed over adversity." - Who do they want for this job, fucking Pollyanna?




elab49 -> RE: I am pissed off because... (27/11/2012 2:17:01 PM)

I hate those questions in job applications as well. They might think it encourages some kind of creative thinking, but all it does is make the questioner look like a tit.

Just tell them about the time you won a HOF on here.




Rebel scum -> RE: I am pissed off because... (27/11/2012 3:39:29 PM)

I would do, but that's hardly triumphing over adversity because my pick was obviously the best one.




homersimpson_esq -> RE: I am pissed off because... (28/11/2012 1:42:29 PM)

The goddamn piece of shit fucking photocopier in work is being absolutely fucking useless. The only thing more useless than it is the team of techs sent out - three times - to sort it out who look at it, take it apart, scratch their heads, and have no fucking idea what is wrong with it.

But it's fine. I only have 20,000 sheets of paper to run through it between now and Christmas, so it's not like it's FUCKING ESSENTIAL TO THE JOB OR COMPANY AT ALL.

Cunts.

steffols -> RE: I am pissed off because... (28/11/2012 2:51:05 PM)

My fiances best friend being a complete twat to me the last few weeks and making me feel like shit on top of the current pile of shit I still feel like from last week.

Going to the theatre tonight and my eyes sting from the huge amount of crying I've done today. I want to disappear so much right now.




elab49 -> RE: I am pissed off because... (28/11/2012 2:59:55 PM)

You shouldn't need to if he's the twat. If he's making you feel small, call him on it. It doesn't need to be a slugfest just a 'stop'. Is there an outside chance he doesn't realise he's being a dick but thinks he's funny or something?

Also - how bloody fragile are shredders? Or is all office equipment going on some kind of mass strike today?




steffols -> RE: I am pissed off because... (28/11/2012 3:10:34 PM)

He's making feel like I'm controlling because other half doesn't go out as much as he once did and its my fault. I played a joke on him the other week on facebook, posted pictures of tractors and cows from his phone and his friend posted a comment in the vain of 'isn't it about time you changed your password, you only have yourself to blame' which really hurt me because of its tone and insinuating the controlling thing and when fiance asked him to apologise he said he didnt feel like he had done anything wrong to apologise for and instead brought up something I had said three weeks before to a mutual friend which hurt her feelings (and which I wasn't aware of).

I feel bad for my fiance as hes stuck in the middle of me being upset and his best friend being a dick to me through him. Whenever this stuff happens though, I just recoil into myself and cry nonstop. I hate conflict and didn't want any of this.

EDIT Also, yes, I do think he doesn't realise how much an effect his actions are having on me. Sometimes he acts like his opinions are set in stone and everybody else is wrong.




elab49 -> RE: I am pissed off because... (28/11/2012 3:21:08 PM)

Friends can react badly to their mate coupling up and settling down. It's just jealousy, although they'd run a mile before putting a name to it. They can't handle the fact their friend has changed and it's out of their control.

Maybe rather than letting him upset you you might try smiling at him in pity - 'cos he's not going to win this one and if he doesn't deal he'll lose a friend as well.




DancingClown -> RE: I am pissed off because... (29/11/2012 8:37:29 AM)

Royally fucked my back yesterday. Oldest was in school but I was giving the two younger little 'uns a bath, and I was fishing Billy out (nine months) and laying him down on a towel when God stuck a pitch-fork into my lower back. Hurt like a bastard and my middle son (he's two and a bit) has now picked up some intriguing new words. Horrible. I was so scared I was going to drop the baby as I hobbled into the living room, freaking out due to pain and the fact that Teddy was still in the bath.

Finally managed to lower myself onto the floor but the baby kept crawling away as I was trying to dress him, and reaching to try and catch him was excruciating. Luckily Teddy managed to climb out of the bath himself - first time he's done that - but it took me half an hour to get them dried and dressed. Getting back on my feet was agony but I had to fix lunch, shuffling around the kitchen like Frankenstein's monster, nearly in tears and panicking about how I was going to feed Billy when I couldn't bend to pick him up or hold him. And how the hell was I going to pick George up from school? Only three minutes away but I couldn't lift the boys to get them in the buggy, I couldn't lift or unfold the buggy itself, and I couldn't push the damn thing anyway.

Eventually I swallowed my pride and had to ring my wife's school to get a message to her to help. Luckily she was able to flee work and take the rest of the day while she helped me into bed where I flailed miserably like a large, disgruntled fish. She's had to take today off as well - unpaid 'parental leave' unfortunately - and I'm still stuck in bed which is not quite the luxury it sounds and the guilt is just as painful as my back. This has happened at various times since DC junior number one, endless bending and fetching and picking up and lifting and you just tend to forget about how you could be damaging your back - until the time it decides to tell you.

I know there are people here whose back problems are more chronic and frequent than mine, but it can be really frustrating and somewhat terrifying, particularly if you're in the middle of something rather important...like balancing a wriggling, and hefty, baby boy in your arms. We really don't need this shit right now.

I'm just glad we're approaching the end of what has turned out to be one seriously shitty shit-stain of a year.
