There's a storm in my teacup!

Well, in my dollar store mug.

Morose little bugger
Sports Interactive don't want me going back there for games testing. I just got an email from Joe explaining how so many more people wanted to work this year and I was one of the unlucky ones, and my information has been "kept on file in case more testers are needed". Given how I recall Joe's comments of the testers "on standby" last year, I think that closes that avenue of work down firmly. I know my faults: I was too pleasant, I was too curious, I didn't join in with the group activities (never went off down the pub, preferring to work on the game in the empty studio on a half dozen machines) and I simply wasn't there enough. Oh, and I scored a really good goal on Pro Evo 3 against him. Bicycle kick from a corner. His face was one of an upset man, who would use that against me at every opportunity.

I've also had my day disrupted by being taken to my uncle's place. Chen, his wife, is arranging things for the funeral of her mother, who passed away a week ago. I didn't know her very well, so hope I don't get invited to the funeral. But I created the pamphlet that will be given to every attendee of the funeral, documenting the order of the service.

I met Chen's brother, Bradley. Money rules him. I wasn't pleased when I had to be driven home by him. He's the type of person I'd grumble at if I watched them drive past, and there I was, having to take a ride home from him. I watched him drive no-handed whilst talking on the phone and if I knew where I was, I'd have asked if I could hop out early and walk the rest of the way back, such was my uncertainty with his driving style. I also heard him talk about his mother's car, trying to sell it off before she's even been buried.

Meh. Over the last few days I've suffered with a painful ear. Thankfully that's remedied itself. I wasn't going to head into work today because of it. Instead, I'm not heading into work because I've just done six hours' worth of work and got enough for it to make working those four hours close to pointless. And I'd have had to leave before now.

What I might do is have a little rest and go watch a film. Maybe I'll do that tomorrow, I'm not sure. I'm pretty tired and unsure of my limitations.

I'm sorry to hear about the lack of employment.
I got smacked from being re-hired myself due to my pleasentries with customers.
... but I worked customer service, but ah well, such is my naive mind in the world of retail *shrugs*

I have money monglers as relatives. They drive Benzs and Jags and think they are on top of the world. But I know plenty of their dirty secrets so suffice to say I'm happy where I am in the world.

If anything, dream sweet *kiss* Do you still chat on MSN? I keep forgetting the time differences.

I've still got the other job to fall back on but it's a third of the pay due to limited hours. Still, that's life.

I've been using MSN on a client called Miranda, the username is vertaise@hotmail.com - I'm sometimes on there.

Sorry that you won't be there mate. I wouldn't take it too much to heart, you're a good guy. Hopefully you'll be one of the standby people taken back, it's happened before.

I don't know. I'm a little perturbed because I thought I was quite good at the job and quite a cheerful person to have around there. But if that's not what Joe wants, fair enough, I couldn't be anything else.

I'll get over it. I'd just been asking Joe well in advance about working and I'd have started a stint of working there yesterday if he'd confirmed the date he wanted me there.
