Yes, but... what about this old good rule...:
People with "problems" always has other people with problems around...

Mhh?
Basically: we all have problems, who more who less.

Example: who suffers because doesn't have food and who suffers because has ended the list of posh restaurants to try...

And I still think that the second of the list are the ones who really really has problems, in today's world.

OK. But why me ?
I suppose they accepted this project, because they all got problems. And when you have problems, people are not that nice with you.
Even the first one, the Portuguese guy, he was not violent. Very perturbated, yes. Like he was thinking about his life, all the time.

The point is that I can do my job, yes, the technical part. I can not help people about all this. And that turned my life into something horrible too.

No, that is called I needed money.
And I needed to learn a job.
Maybe they needed exactly what I needed. Maybe they learned a lot too. Maybe that explains why we were so negative. Maybe the job was really difficult.

laaran, if you plan to be a little drunk at work all the time, you're not going to reduce the problems in your job. Try Philip's Bubble Tea, it sounds pretty cool and might cheer you up.

to reduce the problems in your job
The problem in my job ?
The main goal in computing (in a service company) is to please the client. To please the client, the first point is : you must seem happy. Whatever happens, you must seem happy.
If you can seem competent too, that is better, but it is not really necessary.

if you plan to be a little drunk at work all the time
You are right, I don't feel happy when I drink.
I was listening to music during several months. Then they decided it was bad, because that gave an image of lazy workers to the client.

If they care so much for images, why don't they employ top-model ?
They do employ top-models, but only for the most boring jobs (for example, helping people at the desk at the entrance of buildings).

I am fed up with these business men, who think they are adults. If they care for image, then they must be responsible and employ women, rather than men, and rather pretty women.

Not really!
I know Laraan is french but, for what I feel and know, the "business rules" system has its roots into the american example. Damn.

Basically: all that un-human crap like Mc Donalds rules for their employees: is that american or not??
So, even if I'm talking about a dirty pizza italian fast food, the rules would be more or less "like" the Mc Donalds ones, for sure. Unfortunately.

But what I'm talking about? Why?!!
About a place where there are television churches and religions...
And about the rest of the world which, begging for more money, instead of saying "that's crap", seems to copy the bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad (bad?) example.

clap clap!

I don't know if this is French or American.
It was not French, I don't think it was French. Today it is French.

What I know is that the bosses of this company (Capgemini) get millions or billions of euro. And the this company has now branches all around the world.

I received today the annual report of the company.
Concerning the future, I don't trust one word from what I read inside. They always write that the worst is beyond, and that the coming years will be easier.
And they put pretty paintings everywhere. When I want to see paintings, I go (and pay for) to a museum, because the light is better.
One thing does not lie. There are photographs of the leaders. Very few are smiling.

Well, I was 12 or maybe 13 when I was introduced by a friend into something like those awful multilevel things, like herbalife etc..

Just few days to understand that:

first my friend was not that clever as I was thinking that...

And then that all managers and bosses and sub bosses and ultra heads of companies are probably rich, yep... but they still hold a kind of childish stupid dream inside themselves. They are so so much living in a bubble made of nothing. Some of them knows it and suffer silently, cause the power of money is stronger then quitting.
But the rest of them (the majority!) doesn't have a clue about the whole thing. If their company would say "you have to paint your face yellow cause yellow is the color that attracts customers and make them happy".. they will do it!!!!

The scary thing is that the world is full of companies... And so full of people brainwashed.

Compared to that, how beautiful is the job of a shoes fixer? Fantastically anarchic, free and healthier!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The worst is that sometimes they just imagine things.

Our client didn't care at all for me listening to music.

Also I was arriving around 10:15. To arrive late was the only solution to avoid the crowd in the subway. Also I can't type message till 3 AM and wake up at 7 AM.
Anyway I arrived a bit late. I am sure the client didn't mind at all, I was doing all the work.
My superior insulted me because of that. That didn't fit with his own ideas. The "client" was just an excuse.

I'm sure your superior would love to call you his "inferior"...

If you are planning to leave the company, before doing that please do something good, dunno...

Like going there the last day very very late, with a stereo on your shoulder like rappers in the 80s and wearing a t shirt saying "You people still enjoying working here... You poor little little worms..."

:) Uhm?

I suppose you are trying to be nice. But I disagree. I disagree with everybody these days, so don't be angry about it.

Yes/no.
He tried to convince me, this is not that insulting.

Like going there the last day very very late, with a stereo on your shoulder
Certainly not. That would just mean : yes, my superior was right, I really don't care for the client. I do care, but not the way he asked me to.

before doing that please do something good
Oh that, don't worry. I don't like so much these companies, with the top-level earning the most money.
Some people probably appreciated my attitude. They asked if I felt OK, and some wishes me "good luck" with sincerity. People I barely knew.

Belfast Bomber otherwise known as a Car Bomb

Take 1 pint glass and half fill it with Guinness.
Take 1 shot glass and half fill it with Irish whiskey and top it up with Baileys.
Now, drop the whole shot glass into the pint glass and knock it back!
Note: This needs to be done as quickly as possible asthe drinks curdle when they mix.

Tastes bloody lovely though!!

mmm nice thread so I'll jump to what's best in it

The Blue Lagoon (it has different names in other countries)-
- champaigne or sth cheapper like wine with bubbles+blue bols+slice of that green lemon+gin mmmmmmmm

Tha Apple Pie/Mamut(in some parts of Poland) - apple juice+vodka ZUBROWKA (the one with grass in the bottle)+slife of lemon+cynamon

Smirnoff Ice

wine-recently I've found that white German semi-dry LIEBFRAUMILCH from Schwarzwald, I got crazy about it

beer - Czech beer takes it all - STAROPRAMEN, ZLOTY BAZANT, PILLSNER URQUELL
Polish (very tasty) - ZYWIEC, LECH, TYSKIE
Danish - HEINEKEN
German - WARSTEINER is great , KROMBACHER - ok, but I don't enjoy BECK's

oh and that MILLER, is it American? Wasn't bad.
I don't know any English beer.

And I hate vodka except ZUBROWKA. I sometimes drink it but it doesn't make any difference for me if it's Smirnoff, Finlandia, Belveder, Chopin or Bols. I just hate it.

MMMM nice list of alcohols. I'd better shut up.

Hmmm...Water is always ace as far as non-alcoholics go. Nothing beats a nice cold glass of water when you're thirsty.

I don't like most flavoured carbonated beverages...

I've been drinking coffee since I was 5 and I pride myself with being a user and not an abuser... hehehe. Coffee is really nice but i function just as well without it.

As far as alcohol goes I don't really like dry wines or whiskey or brandy 'cause I'm a supertaster and they're WAY too bitter. But I really, really like a nice Vermouth or Port 'cause they're sweet. (If you want to know what a supertaster is check here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_taster)

Beer is alright I guess, but I'm not a huge fan. I only know I like nice tasty beers and not those popular ones like Carlsberg and Heineken and such. Staropramen in pretty good. And Corona.

My fav drink is Rhum&Coke but it has to be with CocaCola (even though I loathe the CocaCola company) and a nice cuban dark rhum. Havana Club rhum is A LOT better than Bacardi btw so try it the next time you're looking for a good rhum. Jamaican or Barbadian (did I just make that word up?) rhums usually taste a bit too much like molasses for my taste.

This week my dad introduced me to the charms of a nice Tom Collins and I'm really starting to like that one as well.
