WGMG..as of today I am officially the parent of a teenager :rolleyes:

Except he has been behaving like a stroppy teenager for the last few years :rolleyes:

Plus i don't feel old enough to be the parent if a ******* teenager....

Anyhoo.. off to buy a cake and work out which pizzas he wants...if that's not too lame and embarrassing for him :rolleyes:

Thanks guys!

I was probably about 30 when I last confessed to having a birthday! 🤣

Turns out that the guy who sits next to me at school has the same birthday as me (newish staff member)...so it was a shared celebration , from which  there was no escaping.

Haha some of the rants in here crack me up. 

Needs a rant, corporations that have cut back staff putting pressure on the ones working from home, my mate is struggling with the workload and took stress leave twice, his phone and email are non stop. Also the insurance company I'm dealing with has this issue and my poor case manager i have is cracking to but was able to cheer him up telling him of my 1 year ordeal. 

Also government is cutting the payment amount which could hurt alot of people heading into Christmas/new years.

What progress have you made on your "1 year ordeal", Burger?

So unfair that you have such problems on top of the actual medical issue!

 

Take care.

Psycho pigeons from hell.....

I went down to the city / rocks today for only the second time this year for a walk about. I went to my usual cafe and sat outside in the courtyard. There are usually some pigeons around but not like this! A group of 4 or 5 scruffy as **** unhealthy looking thin ones. Usually they would only land on a table after someone had left but these were right in there on peoples food, no backing down lol I had a chat to the young waitress girl and she said they are having major issues due to the lack of people over however many months, the pigeons don't have access to the usual shyte so they are getting hungry and aggressive. 

The table across from me had a couple of young women and a pigeon landed on their table and sent her coffee glass flying and all down her while trousers. The pigeon got right on top of her food lol They got a free replacement food and took it away / didn't come back.

Yeah, the company I work for seems to think the best policy is less staff and more work. I still have a job but three have left and not been replaced, its challenging..

Worked for 20 years as a product manager in telco, so when I heard all the rants and gear grinding about the NBN being a sh*tshow I just laughed it off as whingeing nannas that need shortcuts on their desktop to use a computer. How wrong I was.... how very, very wrong...

I hear you brother.....it's crap at work, it's crap at home. Drops out regularly. Sometimes work download speed drops to 1-2Mbps when I'm theoretically paying for 100Mbps - I know it's averaged over the day but geez. I use two different providers but no real difference in service - I think it's the infrastructure that sux - fibre-to-the-node hmph - my old cable was better.

Plus of course now our work phones all have to run through the interwebs too - and they die when it does.....

Plus I'm in the medical field and we still use faxes quite often coz more secure than email for reports and even with the adaptor they often play up.....grrrrrrrr

WRGMG is receiving spam calls from Australian landline and mobile numbers. I've learnt to identify and block the numbers but  the numbers change often. When I do answer one the conversation, if any, is very minimal. What are they verifying? What are they capturing?

WGMG...done my back in...struggle to get comfy, especially at night. The wife is rough as fook rubbing in the deep heat stuff..:shok: 

I make sounds like a 90 year old man standing up and sitting down according to my son.

No ******* sympathy.....

Oh no! :grouphug::grouphug:

Time and rest...or is it gentle stretches these ?...will fix it. It seems that different treatments work for different people!

Horrible when it happens though!

Take care. :grouphug:
