The Eerie Thread of Weird
« on: 03 October, 2014, 06:28:51 pm »
Yesterday, the lady who took my last CPC training session emailed my boss to tell him that I never turned up for the final Saturday session (I did). Today, the warehouse manager of my last pick-up in Preston telephoned my boss to tell him that I'd never turned up for the pallet I was scheduled to collect (I had, the pallet was on the truck and I was five minutes away from base when the manager called my boss- the same manager who had LOADED THE PALLET AND HANDED ME THE PAPERWORK, ffs).
.
I was beginning to feel like I'd died without noticing, driving those last few miles home was an existential nightmare, but fortunately, by the time I got back, both the trainer and the warehouse manager had contacted my boss apologising for their respective (and totally unconnected) mistakes. So it seems I'm still alive. I think.
.
I mean, I never thought of myself as a particularly memorable person but two people forgetting all about me in 48 hours is taking the bloody piss - and also very, very eerie and weird.

Who said that?  :-\ ;)
An old-school, no-bullshit, boys-own action/adventure comic reminiscent of the 2000ads and Eagles and Warlords and Battles and other glorious black-and-white comics that were so, so cool in the 70's and 80's - Buy the hardback Christmas Annual!

I hate it when these newbies start threads, who is this guy anyway?
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference and the promise of an early bed

You also cocked-up somehow with that portrait of an ever-more handsome wholesome young fellow you keep in your (hypothetical) attic...

Have a look in the mirror. If you have acquired a neat goatee beard, you have clearly swapped places with your evil doppelgänger and should apply for a job with MI5 or Goldman Sachs.

I assumed Sharky's evil doppelgänger was Chief Executive of Goldman Sachs.

Nah, Sharkys evil doppleganger is Cadborosaurs. We just keep miss identifying him.

I thought I'd eaten all of those but maybe there are one or two left. They're crunchy but fattening.
