You know they've got mothers day cards addressed to "grandma" and "wife" now too?

West Ham rolling over AGAIN and England behind against The Frenchies with about 11 minutes to go.

Edit: England losing to the Frenchies!

Middle lane huggers on the motorway. Undertaking is too good for 'em - decapitation is the answer.

There is obviously a situation here I am missing as the above doesn't sound like Coops

Fairly heavy but moving traffic, all lanes doing similar speed. I need to pull over,but the twat on the inside lane has seen an opportunity to join the queue 20 yards further up, a distance that is obviously worth risking his and my life for.

There is a poisonous **** in our office that has just given birth. She has a massively inflated sense of self importance. She has been in twice (she gave birth about three weeks ago) and once was talking loudly about how she was working Monday and Tuesday. She heads up a team of seven people, which is hugely overstaffed.

If you are working, it is because you didn't hand over properly. Your team is enormous. You have been in once, now switch off your work mobile and don't come back until your maternity leave is over, for the sake of all of us.

This!! I did some pretty cool stuff nine months ago but I don't need to show everyone!

Also on an aside, that bit in Masterchef where they have to tell the people what they have cooked, the menu is right there for effs sake!

I know just where you're coming from...
There ain't much you can do. I tend to get up,make a brew,trawl through this site (write some nonsense), then just listen to the silence ( or the rain).It's a bugger.

Dress-down friday in this office. The sales team, who comprise the majority of staff here, all wear clobber like the morons on The Apprentice during the week, then casuals on friday. This isn't the problem. What IS the problem is that in addition to jeans & trainers on friday, there appears to be a running competition to see which of them can wear the most aftershave, cologne and perfume. Honks like the duty free perfume section at Heathrow as they all sashay round, doing nothing.

I've never understood dress down Friday.

There seems to be two extremes here amongst men - either the usual shirt/trousers/shoes combo will be replaced by a shirt/jeans/shoes combo (what's the point), or else it'll be full tshirt/ripped jeans/trainers that looks extremely unprofessional in an office for a company that places great emphasis on impressing clients.

shirt/jeans/shoes combo - over 30
tshirt/ripped jeans/trainers - under 30

I'd guess the majority round here are under 30. People no longer wear socks, I've noticed. Tight jeans that sit well above the ankle, no socks and ugly trainers appears to be the go-to combination when you want to look like an unprofessional twat.

Where i work it don't matter what you wear to be honest. I don't really see the need to go into work in a suit nowadays, seems a bit old fashioned to me.

It depends on what you do, or what people in your office do, but my company is very client orientated, they've made a great effort to make their head office look impressive to clients and other visitors, yet on a Friday you have people strolling around in trainers, hooded jumpers etc.
