    Speaking of phones, I just read a tech resolution here about someone sticking with one phone for more than a month. I can't say that would be a resolution of mine for sure but that could be interesting to try, but let's go with a month first. Now I should consider what phone I want to try this with...but I think I already know.

    So, what would you do if you didn't have to go back to work? That sounds like a good thread to start!
    "What would you do if you didn't have to go back to work"
    Did you start it??? I'll gladly contribute. :P

    I would have maybe a post or two and that's it because I would be officially retired 😀

    More like reality. The supervisor he had is rather common. There are worse, way worse.

    Also, knowing what you don't want is a good way of avoiding it.

    Thing to note to the young ones here. Asking questions in an interview is a very good idea. It's always important to get an idea of the company and the people you're working with.

    I know when you're young you only want a job but you should always think about your next step. Don't get caught up in working somewhere just because.

    I don't really want to 'retire' as such.

    Noted, thanks for the wisdom! I will remember that for the next location. I don't plan to be where I am forever but I don't see any of the staff leaving all of a sudden. It's my first one and I'm so thankful but there's nowhere to climb here aside from what I have been promoted to, which was the reason why I just finished my probation a few weeks back.

    I concur but for some reason think posting on a thread wouldn't be on the cards...

    It's been one major bummer after another. I agree that 2016 cannot end fast enough for me. What a rotten year in more than one respect.
    I was 3, so I'm not sure I saw it at the theater, but my dad had recorded it, I think off a channel called "Showbiz" which hasn't been around in probably 30 years. I think I wore the VHS tape out... In fact I have a vague memory of my dad being upset when he got home from work and I was watching Star Wars off the VHS tape, but it was showing on TV. I guess VHS was expensive at the time and I was needlessly wearing it out

    I get you, I'm not a shy person when it comes to bussines, so that shouldn't be a problem in the future.

    Oh, and I've started writing for a blog of some sort, tech related. I'llbe writing about windows apps to be precise, nothing special, just to have something to waste time on.
    I'd share the site here but it's in Bosnian, so no point there.

    When I read that it sounded like you were planing on wheeling an dealing. :P

    I'm not sure where you plan to work in the future but all countries are different in their work culture and within each company they are different as well. Some companies can feel very stifling working at them. Not a nice environment at all.

    So it's good to know what you're getting into. Research the company and ask questions at interviews. Determine if it works for you as well as you working for them. Interviews are a two way street. If you're desperate, sure, take any job, but don't get trapped in the BS.

    That's all I was getting at.

    Well I wanted it to be a trip to somewhere in the sun but the cost of travel around Xmas is extortionate.

    I didn't sleep well Monday night.

    Ohh okay.

    Yeah that's not a pleasant way to start things. I hope that it'll get better for you. Weird that you say that, I didn't either but that goes for last night.

    Well to be honest I should correct that. We were hoping to see family (in Europe) at Xmas or go somewhere sunny (i.e. South of France).

    To see family the tickets were about 4X the typical return ticket price. South of France was about 3X.

    We also would have needed a car for either place and accommodation for the South of France.

    So that's why we didn't go. Prices were just crazy.

    Back at work since yesterday. It is a bit crazy. Car had some trouble so I had to sort that out yesterday. Luckily it was only the radiator cap. Have too much else going on at work though. Reviews, supplier issues, scheduling training sessions, on and on the list goes...
