ok maybe it's just me ...... have you noticed how big companies tend to treat their staff like lumps of meat and not like humans with feelings etc. My company have moved me and our section to another part of the building ans will eventually intergrate us in to another team whether we want to or not. It'll change my hours, my life completely. But do they care .. HELL NO! This Sunday is the day the wife is made redundant. From today she loses her job ... again her company wanted to merge two locations and hers got the chop. More money lost. Kids:... mine seem intent on destrying the world they live in. This moring my kids kicked over a coffee all over the carpet, her favourite blanket, and my mobile/cell phone. Whilst Junior Lensmeister decided to wake his sister and tell her "get Dad out of bed so I can play playstation" (his PS2 is in our room as we wanted to be able to control the amount of use) Next week we have to pay out almost £1000 to get a new fence as the "cowboy outfit" that put up the last one is out of business and it blew down, and we need it replacing so the kids can play in the garden without fear of them running away or some pervert trying to snatch them. Rant over !
