Yep, hearing all that, DC. Went through a similar bout of pain this week with my back. Completely wipes you out.

My boss doing a Bill Lumbergh today. "Yeah, I'm gonna go ahead and ask you to flake on your other responsibilities and stay an extra hour because there's still work left and I'm too lazy to do it myself. And then when you refuse, I'm going to bring up the fact that you started a couple of minutes after the hour today to try and guilt you into it. Like as if you started bang on time there wouldn't be an hour's work left.. yeah..." Fucking pillock. L'esprit de l'escalier ensued. Not that I could afford to whip out a cutting remark, but then the place is a bit understaffed and I'm not sure he could afford to get rid of me, which may buy me a pithy retort or two.

Cancer can just fuck off and leave my family alone, I never really knew my Grandparents on my Mums side as it took them both before I can remember. 3 years ago 2 of my cousins got diagnosed with breast cancer and sadly one of them lost her fight just over 2 years ago, last Christmas I got told one of my aunties had been diagnosed with liver cancer but all through the year we were told it was going well. On Mums visit yesterday she sadly told me that if my auntie lives to see 2013 she'd have exceeded doctors expectations, currently feel like I've been hit by a ten tonne truck and am flipping between sobbing my heart out and just sitting morosely and quiet every 5 minutes

I don't think anyone can say anything that's remotely comforting, ChickMagnet, because of the sheer fucking unfairness of that particular cunt of a disease. Nevertheless, best wishes and good thoughts to you and yours.

It really annoys me when managers do this. A few weeks ago, the checkouts of the supermarket I work in were rammed with customers. The checkout manager was on her lunch and lights were flashing like a Christmas tree (when the cashier needs assistance), I sat on a till and watched as the Store Manager and Deputy Store Manager ignored the lights flashing and walked away from the chaos. I later found out that the DSM sent someone out to the checkout managers car to bring her back from her lunch early so she could calm the place down.

Never been so fuming at the managers in that place. It's their store and they daren't lift a finger to help out around the place, instead sitting in the canteen all day and playing with a ball in the managers office.

Also, so sorry to hear about your family CM, luckily, my family have never been hurt badly by the disease but my mums cousin and auntie both died of bowel cancer before I was born and when she was just a kid. Bowel cancer runs in the females in my family apparently and I was tested for the gene when I was a baby which I apparently don't have thank god. Much love to your family. x

Fuck sake.

I have been signed off work since end of October. I am in extreme discomfort right now while waiting for an operation. I am now reduced to lying down all day - except even that is painful. My op is scheduled for 20th December, which currently feels like a lifetime away due to the fact I can't eat anymore and I can't sleep.

And yet I get to read online about how William's missus has been admitted to hospital for several days with bad morning sickness.

Good. Een.

Sadly lots and lost of money makes a difference to the speed of admission. That said it is a nasty nasty form of morning sickness.

I know, and I'm not trying to criticise her as obviously I can't understand what it must be like, it's just the situation - it's so incredibly frustrating that I have been unable to eat since last Friday, I can't sleep, I can't sit in one position for more than 5 minutes, I have to take painkillers because of the pressure on my back and ribs and I currently have to get my mum to put my socks on for me. I am essentially debilitated at the moment. And that's not enough to get me operated on sooner.

Sadly we do still live in very much a two tier society (it not more tiers).

Yup.

What started out as a fairly peaceful protest (I think, anyway) escalated into a full on riot smashing up the City Hall.

Not only is this crass exploitation, it could reasonably be considered a tad premature, yes? What if, god forbid, complications arose? Wankers.

I get the impression one of the reasons they wanted to hold off on releasing the information was because they knew a two ring circus would start as soon as they did and lo and behold the circus is in town.

Also I cannot find my copy of Office Space, where is is?

Isn't it more because every expectant mother tries to keep it quiet until it passes the 3 month mark because of the high rate of miscarriage before that point?

Indeed it is which would be tragic especially with all the pressure now on them (not that it would be not be awful enough for them anyway).

It must be worse for them as the news suggested that avoidance of stress is important for this particular condition.

Felt queasy but went to office as I had a meeting at which point started being copiously sick. I couldn't stay at the office so have had the most horrendous journey home of my life (via hard shoulders and large shops with wc facilities). Advice to all - dragging yourself to work because you think that's too important is just not worth it.

This is a mild one but It still has pissed me off.

Just brought 3 DVD's for christmas presents from HMV and the dumb staff have still left the security tags on them.
Abit of an ass in trying to get the buggers off.

EDIT: got one out of the way.Just another two to go.
