    Having no icebreakers this year has been an absolute GODSEND.

    Can we do that on Moopy?

    I guess it's a way to travel to go for a coffee with @OutSynk

    I've just had a call with a PERSONAL BRAND consultant. So you can soon pay me £500 for my autograph.

    Not sure if this is a shade or a compliment.

    :D

    More a PRACTICAL point. A coffee with you would be lovely. Maybe you could drive me round the city and give me a city tour too, but I do imagine it would be a bit like

    Innit. I don’t really want to chat with the colleagues I DO get on with.

    You'll take a fish supper and the bus fare home, same as everyone else.

    So, back from electrolysis. The tech was telling about some of the outright cuntery she and the other staff have been subjected to by anti-maskers. The poor receptionist has been told several times "you'll take that thing off when you speak to me", people have said they want a discount is their clinician wears a mask(! - I mean, spot the middle-class Tory or what?) and folk have even complained about not being allowed to bring their dogs in! I could despair.

    I'd happily take a fish super and spend my bus fare on a can of dandelion and burdock and maybe a toffee crisp if I'm feeling lucky.

    My aunt and uncle have gone full on anti-mask, conspiracy theorists on facebook. Makes me genuinely really quite sad. They have a 13 year old son who is no doubt soaking it all in as well. Their arguments always seem to end with "THEY'RE ALL TWATS ANYWAY"... actually they're not wrong there.

    I'll be honest I'm only wearing a mask for others now. I don't really know if they help or if I'm that at risk (in fact I'm still convinced I've been there and done that like a true conspiracy nutjob) but as Ms Ron pointed out if me wearing a mask makes a little old dear feel a bit safer walking around co-op then whats the problem.

    Travelodge are refusing to issue a voucher refund for the booking I made on 2nd September because the booking is too recent. I’ve been through their terms and conditions for saver rate ticket refunds during Covid 19, and this rule doesn’t exist. By their OWN FUCKING T&Cs I’m entitled to a refund. I’ve currently argued this with two reps on the phone and their customer services via chat, and I’ve publicly asked for a refund via Twitter. Seriously, they’re literally scamming me at this point - what can I do?

    When I asked the agent on chat to point out to me the exact part of their t&c’s which stated I wasn’t entitled, he mysteriously disconnected.

    This sounds like my worst nightmare. I especially hate any sanctioned office forced fun type of activities.

    Did they not have this sort of Olympic-level fuckery when you were doing your tour of duty?

    No, I don't remember anything like that AT ALL. We were allowed to get on with seething quietly uninterrupted.

    Anyone need a Steps pre-sale ticket link? I don't know why they've sent it to me.

    Mr L had some kind of zoom work bingo event yesterday which he was dreading. He's very good at suppressing his disdain though, whereas I really struggle not to call out such cuntery.

    He ended up winning a half day's leave though, so i suppose it was worth it.

    I think I've mentioned before about the last place I've worked having a 'giggle-ology' instructor come in to teach us to relax through laughter. I'd rather set fire to myself than do that again.

    Let me know the date and time if you’re organising.

    Also can you ensure it’s at a suitable time for our international posters like vespertine. Would be a shame to exclude them. :)

    If you paid on yr credit card do a chargeback on the basis that they;re not abiding by their own Ts and Cs. Even tho' you've cancelled the booking, it can be done as "not as described" because they're not following the terms under which you made the booking.
