    Awkward as in really upset, or awkward as in planning a party?

    Awkward as in, I feel awkward

    I thought my boss would tell them

    I don't know

    They never noticed my engagement ring, or at least, didn't ask me about it

    So they don't know Mori exists and so I haven't wanted to say 'oh hey I got a fiancé visa'

    Fortunately they haven't asked me how I plan to live out there when I don't have a job

    Oh that is close. That sounds pretty cool actually. Small groups are more interesting places to work usually.

    My boss is so old fashioned

    It is all men here

    I am the only female, and that is because my position is that of secretary/administrator

    He was interviewing women for my job and said 'oh I know it is politically incorrect but I have to have a young female in your position because I think a female voice should answer the phone and older women are too set in their ways'

    I work in a job that requires running, I don't run, I prefer to smoke a lot of cigarettes. So i hired a dude to run for me. It's awesome that I hired someone for the sole purpose of running. The interview was like, "how fast can you run? and could you stop someone if they were running from you?"

    He just wanted to covet that impeccable voice for his own gains.

    2 weeks after starting my last full time job I had to tell them I was leaving in 4 weeks to go back to uni, since I had unexpectedly received an offer for a course I applied to some time before hand

    imagine how awkward that was

    I was the only male who worked there and I presume that was the only reason they hired me, since I look so damn spiffy in a suit. Funnily enough I was a receptionist.

    It was a bizzaro office, I tell you what.

    I can run, but i'm not big on perspiring. I like a nice job where they give me lots of money to tell poor people what they can and can't do.

    We have that here in America.

    It's called the Department of Labor.

    Pretty much everything in the social state sector involves doing it to a certain degree.
    It's probably fitting that that's what I'm most qualified to do.

    Jobs I'm applying for
    - Carities Commission Customer advisor - telling poor people charities who to give the money too
    - Connexxions COntact Worker - telling stupid/poor 16 years olds what to do now that they've dropped out of highschool
    - Refugee Action service advisor - telling poor (non-english) people to do... basically anything we tell them to

    I'd love that second one.

    "Go back to school. That's what you should do, you fucking dolt."

    See, I'm perfect for the job.

    It's funny because my highschool wouldn't allow connexxions to come and give their little presentation about "post age 16 career choices", as far as they were concerned everyone was staying on and eventually going to university. I didn't even know you could leave school at 16.

    Also, I love the diversity questionnaire at the end of these forms

    Many people left school at 16, but then our high school wasn't attached to a college

    I went to a separate college at 16. Then a different one at 17. It all went wrong around that time.

    Nope. But that's the IDF for ya. Can't afford to give people big paychecks in a draft based army.

    I start my new job next week.

    I currently work tech support, so this week I've been easing off on the tact.

    I just told someone they were having problems accessing a website because they "couldn't bloody spell".

    Fun times.

    im at work every weekday morning at 3:45am till 12:45pm

    so im out for the afternoons which is nice

    i also work every other saturday morning at 5am, but those are only 4 hour shifts so its easy OT

    i enjoy television, but it gets redundant after a while (same stories the same time of year) but natural disasters and murders usually liven things up a bit

    My school let us know that we could leave, but that we'd be scum if we did so. Unless we didn't get enough A-C grades at GCSE, in which case then just quietly booted you out.
