Wow, this topic is getting pretty long already.
Oh BTW, think those grading systems are funny? I'm graded in two ways... In percentages. And in the IB scale from 1 to 7 (7 being the best mark).

Is there a possibility to earn more than 100%? In the bank we are always forced to over-produce the "numbers". Nothing has changed since the last regime, really. :lol:

Well, it is possible to do extra credit, but really, it's pretty much impossible to get above 100%. :fish:

I've just came home :(

I've been there and they told me that cause I couldn't go this weekend (so in June instead of July instead of August) when they called me on Friday asking if I come on Saturday and Sunday... They had to hire someone else for these months so I will start in August.
Which does not really make me happy. I am happy, that I will have free time but at the same time all our living will by on my bf :(
And the lady (not the boss) was very unpleasant :(
She behaved like if I were just some cockroach :(   I see that it's all the same everywhere... :(

In August I have only 4 shifts planned now :( but she said it will probably grow up. I hope so, cause I need to earn at least for my regular bills.


This is just a bad day. :)
But then again, who does.

Oh, this is bad news, Miri! I understand they had to hire someone, but firstly they could have said it nicely and respectfully and secondly it's still hard for you.

Well, the more time for your studies and more time for yourself - this is perhaps the only good thing about it.

Cheers!

Next time she'll be more nice! Probably she had some other problem so she just threw her anger at you... They needed to organize a lot to find someone for the weekend, but you are not the one to blame.

Hahaha, yes, long ago. :)
They say to spare money, to make the structure more reasonable etc. etc. blabla... :)
I guess this is what's going on all over the world. Problems are everywhere, and the bosses feel the urge of doing "something".

2012 is approaching! :evil:

Ow, ouch   :unsure: Those are bad news, Lucy :unsure:

Miri: don't let yourself get sad (bad treatment or not) and catch up with some studies, spend more time with your boyfriend, and generally... enjoy yourself till you start working. You'll pull it out somehow!  ^_^

@ topic: I have to study... it's a very cool subject (morphopathology), but I'm pretty tired already, and the weather only makes it worse - I feel like going out to the park, and eat ice cream and... you get the point.

Thanks Tequila!

Lucy, I am very sorry to hear that :( This is so unpleasant - and yes, You are right, this is now everywhere - even such "wealthy" company like that one where my bf works, already frozen their salaries last year since then they still have the same amount and they don't get any bonuses.  And now, worst things are happening in there... unpleasant boss of their boss is new and makes so many nonsense stuff - just cause he new and needs to show something. And they get more and more services to do than before with the same amount of people. He's getting tired. I can see that :(

Livi: Oh, how much I understand You. Had this all for last month. I hope the exams will be soon behind You too :) And let Yourself to have a little pause in park with ice cream. Little snack can make You concentrate better in next hours :)
But then again, who does.

Takes a huge cup of vanilla flavoured cocoa and sits down in front of the tv screen

Soon there will be a vuvuzela concert to make me sleep better. But I can't understand why are they playing football too in the meantime? :blink:
