I interview people. We honestly don't say stuff like that to candidates just to be nice, it really is a case of someone else simply having a bit more experience. You'll get something, keep at it.
More practical advice might be to pad your CV a bit more, or work out how to make yourself sound that much more experienced in your interviews. You'd be surprised how little people actually bother to learn about the company they're applying at sometimes. If you talk like you already work there you'll be picked out.

My cars engine management system went wrong somehow, which caused a catastrophic overheat and cracked the cylinder head.
Its under warranty but fuck me what a hassle. I hate modern cars. I think I want to sell it for something that you can fix with a few spanners instead of a laptop.

I usually have a bunch of drafts saved and post them when ebay offers promotions like no final value fees or £1 final value fees. I see them every few weeks or so.

A friend told me to watch Adventure Time, and it was good advice. But now I'm well into the fifth series and it's stopped being funny and started leaving me with an uncomfortable feeling of uneasiness. I hope this isn't why he's on all those anti-depressants now.

I could feel myself turning greener and greener with every step I took towards my floor.

It's because the underlying theme is that whilst we can find temporary meaning in our lives, in the long run it's all pretty meaningless.

Adventure time takes a very disappointing dive from exciting surreal light fun into dull convoluted edgy pretension.

Beemer 7 series. I'm happy to have had the experience of a car plusher than I'd ever have dreamed I'd have, but I'll be far happier once I get rid of it and get something old and something I own from day one.

Friend of mine has left her husband, moved out etc, but he's somehow convinced her to still pay her half of the mortgage, bills, etc, and he's taking all the money in the joint account.
I don't know the full story so maybe he's somehow justified in all this, but from my perspective my good friend is getting royally fucked over and it's making me angry. Obviously there's nothing I can do apart from encourage her to talk to a solicitor, but that could see her even worse off financially.
TL;DR I'm very angry on someone else's behalf which is rather frustrating

No offence lad, but she's old enough and mature enough to deal with her marriage troubles, unless you were the instigator.
No smoke without fire, eh?

The way I find myself unable to avoid getting pulled into other peoples issues even when I'm extremely busy.
>Obviously there's nothing I can do apart from encourage her to talk to a solicitor, but that could see her even worse off financially.
Send her down to Citizens Advice.
Like you said I don't know the full story but the mortgage isn't much a bother. If her names on it of course she still has to pay but then she also shares ownership (ditto with bills). Best not to stick your oar into such things anyway although it might be an idea though to gently suggest she cancel the mandate on the joint account immediately. This will save allot of hassle if he goes off the rails and ends up accruing joint-debt.
|>>|| No. 25187
I know that. It's hardly my business but it does set off some alarm bells. From what I gather neither party has been particularly faithful, so I'm not sure why she would accept such a bad deal. Suppose if you want rid of someone though it might be worth the cost.
I don't intend to do anything other than be a shoulder to whinge on, that's why I'm posting here to get it out of my system. Logically I'm quite aware that its none of my business and quite possibly all her fault, but my instinct is to break some legs, either literally or metaphorically. I won't though, obviousl
Good advice about citizens advice, and probably the right level of appropriate advice.

Thanks to my son I've had "Woop-woop! It's the sound of da police!" in my head all week.

Oh, Christ. The line is "Woop-woop! That's the sound of da police!"
I really am being a proper parent, getting lyrics wrong and everything.

I've just seen John Cleese doing a PPI advert.
|>>|| No. 25196
He went through a couple of expensive marriages, which, as expected, ended up in even more expensive divorces. A few years ago he did a show called "The Alimony Tour" and made it clear every time he was asked that it wasn't a joke. He really did need to raise money to pay off his ex-wife.
|>>|| No. 25198
They showed us a Scheppes advert he did in what looked like the late 80's, early 90's when I was studying cold fusion generators and definitely not media.
That's sad, he seems like a sad person.

For reasons that are rather complicated, the Pythons didn't exactly get massively rich off their endeavours.

Cleese will flog any old shit. Here he is, extolling the virtues of a Betamax video recorder and the world's least portable "portable" computer.

Jesus Christ, just carrying around my wee laptop can start to bother my shoulders after a while; that "Portable" 2 thing sounded like a Volkswagen when he tapped it.

The automated call systems you have to deal with when you telephone a big company. I know its a cliché but it has been over 20 years now and it doesn't seem to have improved.
Today I had to call the bank and not only did I have to answer security questions multiple times but then once I got through it asked me the purpose of my call. Like it makes any bloody difference when I know full well I'm going to not only go through security again with a human being (in Mumbai) but it will be the same guy I get too no matter what it ends up thinking I'm doing today.
17 is still a child in my book and the 35 year old men who nonce them deserve a good shit-kicking. I don't see what your issue is.
|>>|| No. 25210
17 is basically old enough to be legal but young enough to be vulnerable. It lets them portray the issue without getting into too much trouble.
|>>|| No. 25211
It's not in their interests to improve the system. The more people who get frustrated and give up, the fewer people they have to actually deal with.
Call centres are intentionally Kafkaesque and always will be.
|>>|| No. 25212
Compare the experience of a new customer signing up for a service and an existing customer who needs support. Call centres can get it right, they just won't do it unless there's a profit motive.

I thought that perhaps Mr Winky was having a month off or something, but my knob is definitely not getting as hard as it used to. I don't know if this is because of the anti-depressants I dabbled with, or maybe I just sat on myself, or whatever, but it's genuinely bothering my now.

Get yourself down to the GP for a checkup. A floppy cock is often an early warning sign of other health problems, particularly high blood pressure and diabetes.
Do you smoke? Are you overweight? Are you stressed?
|>>|| No. 25216
Yeah, I was thinking it might be something like that, as I'd had some weird chest pains not to long ago, but I wrote them off as a result of my fairly recent uptake of exercising regularly.
I'm not fat, or a smoker, I'm definitely stressed though.
Also, unrelated to this, but the belt I got from a charity shop broke after a day and a half. On closer inspection it was about as Italian as a KFC bucket, so I've only myself to blame.
|>>|| No. 25217
If you'd ever actually looked at the small print on a KFC bucket you'd realise you look foolish, because at least in this country you'll find they are marked 'Made in Italy'.
|>>|| No. 25218
I haven't specifically had a KFC bucket since about 2004, so I can't honestly say otherwise.
Anyway, the little strap that held the buckle on was made of paper.
|>>|| No. 25219
So is a KFC bucket. Which is made in Italy.
Good lord man get it together.

4/10. Made me actually think about going to KFC to check. Not that one should need an excuse to go to KFC.

We've all come close to pissing off other drivers. I've often wondered what the safest course of action wd be if some Nutter pulled up short in front of me and got out of his car and approached mine. Should I sit tight, drive off or get out and face up to him. Any thoughts?
|>>|| No. 25222
Depends if you have a dashboard camera or if you're in view of a shop camera or something of the like. If you have/are, just sit there and don't do anything.

This exact situation happened a few weeks ago - although I was the pedestrian and observed the whole discourse.
One dickhead pulled in front of a uber driver, they had their windows facing each other and both wound down their windows to swear and spit at each other. It was utterly pathetic and bizarre. Numerous threats of killing each others families, slitting their throat, etc... were made. Other drivers around them were getting irate at the needless hold-up, so they stopped this and parted ways. I felt embarrassed for them.
both of them were bongos if that makes a difference

>> I was thinking purely from a self defence consideration. The web is full of street violence perpetrated by people who Didn,t know or didn't care about cameras. Getting out seems ultra provocative, but just sitting there makes you ultravulnerable.
