From MSN:

Claire: Hello!
Me: Hello!
Claire: Thanks for sorting out the internet connection
Me: No worries. Is Ma Bucket there?
Claire: Yes
Me: She didn't see that did she?
Claire: Yes. She's sitting here next to me.
Me: Whoops.
Claire: Yes
Me: Hello Claires mum, thats a nickname Jenny calls you.
Claire: Must go, there are tears!

I assumed (hoped) that it was the baby crying :/

Maybe she meant there was actual, you know, tearing? In MSN? And she's like me in that it drives her mental?

Hey, it's a theory.

FUCK YOU UBISOFT

I fortunately hit delete before I got to that point:
I was told in a circular email to "Take a step back and a deep breath!!" and to "please step down off the hobby horse." when some fuckwit kept on interfering (one time too many) in an in house course I'm organising. Hey, I only have ten years experience, ask me to do it and don't then fucking micromanage me ffs.

Yes, the email I nearly sent said "It's high horse, not hobby horse you fuckwit."

Cup the balls, work the shaft.

Where is that Oblivion poster that tagline was used for? Still makes me laugh now.

It wasn't Oblivion, it was something else.

Bill's disappeared off Messenger for the last hour or so, perhaps Ma Bucket has already got to him.

It was a Popbitch story about Stallone and a hired help. He was giving her/him instruction on fellatio IIRC.

I've told all you about the time I sent an email to the entire company about 'IT acceptable use policy', with a link that was supposed to be the company online handbook, but was in fact to a store that sells dildos in the shape of Jesus Christ didn't I?

...?

Oh :S

Tell us more.


Was at work a few years back when my boss asked me to go to a meeting with him. I had on a shirt and trousers (looking presentable), but didn't know this meeting with a whole load of big chiefs was going ahead, so hadn't worn a suit or anything. As he told me, he looked at me disgustedly and said soemthing like "not wearing a suit then" or something that pissed me off. I pointed out that he hadn't told me, but went along anyway. Afterwards I was fuming, so dashed off a quick email to my mates calling him a cunt, wanker etc. Only I sent it to him. He'd left for the night so I had a horrific night of working out what I was going to do, barely slept a wink.

I finally settled on a kind of honest policy, so got to work very early and told him that I'd sent a very personal email to him by mistake and would I be able to delete it from his inbox. Luckily he let me and I was able to get rid entirely. One of the worst night's sleep I've ever had, I have to admit.
