CR - check your pms, I've sent you a link to pics of the building.


Aha! Cool. An actual pyramid. Looks pretty cool and they probably saved money and unusable space by doing the top 1/3 with just a frame.

Now... This is the part where someone like Plink would make some sphixtastic pun, I can't really toot my talents in that area.

First day in the pyramid today, started yesterday but was at induction in York... it's a really nice building to work in, really good daylight as it's not that large and there's an awful lot of window, slightly surreal having the windows at an angle, and floors that get smaller the further up you go.

I'm told the building actually wobbles in high winds. :freak:

Are you sure?

Maybe you're actually getting bigger the higher up you go. :freak:

Just to make it even more confuzzling, the land around the building is on a slope, so the front door is on a different floor to the back door.

:lol:

It gets even better, apparently the building is on frickin' springs!

It's supposed to be earthquake proof. No idea what that is about, we don't tend to get them here.

If you jump on the floor, does the building move slightly? :grin:

Well I'm in London, came down yesterday for a nosey around, today I'm going to be stewarding the #OurNHS demo... could be about to be massive, we've had upto 250k in the past, with stuff going on here, might be a lot more than that, at this stage though, who knows.

Got 10am meetup for setup, protestors start arriving for noon.

Coaches coming from all over the country with people, I'm told a few have even chartered a flight from Northern Ireland.

Did I ever mention demos scare the crap out of me? I gotto go poop now, brush teeth, then breakfast/coffee and on to the rendezvous. :freak:

Thousands march in protest over plans for 'unprecedented' NHS cuts

Early reports claim 250,000 thousand people in attendance at what is said to be the largest NHS rally in history


Tens of thousands of people have taken to the streets of London in protest against dramatic NHS cuts proposed by the Government.

Thought to be one of the biggest NHS rallies in history, the Our NHS march comes amid warnings of an unprecedented crisis within health services, fuelled by £20bn worth of cuts scheduled by 2020.

Organisers said the national demonstration was a call to arms for those who care about the NHS, as “more austerity in the NHS represents a real risk to the safety of patients and the service”.

I could so do without shit like this on my way to work... who the fuck would think it was a good idea to cycle in the cycle lane on the wrong fucking side of the road? Apparently they are called Salmon. :facepalm:

Not having a great time at the moment, work is very peculiar indeed, I work for a company that manage a couple of smallish chains of hotels, earlier in the year they sold off one of those, we still have the other and a crazy amount of work around the sale, thing is, there's no word from anyone about what's going on, but it's got out that our lease on the building hasn't been renewed for 2019.... which is making everyone pretty on edge.

Have feelers out but it seems surprisingly dead for this time of year... maybe the whole no-deal brexit coming up is putting a damper on everything.

Also I got home yesterday and went to run my bath and the boiler gave up on me. :facepalm:

Shit will sort itself out, eventually. Just gonna be sucky until it does.

I'm sorry to hear this PC..yeah, the lease thing is never a good sign, and the sound of silence from management is even worse.
Been down this road too many times in my life, had to start over 3 times. First job after military service was Western Electric
making telephones.. good money, benefits, worked 9 years, then they closed the plant down and I was out of work.
Eventually got another job as a driver for a data processing firm, picking up/delivering documents for the auto industry.
Worked for 15 years and the guy went bankrupt and closed the place(right after Sept 9-11).
I worked part time where my wife worked, and eventually made it full time to the production floor assembling cargo systems for FedEx, UPS, Air Italia and Air Bus.
Worked 3 years and they closed the place down and moved to North Carolina. My wife had 30 years there and she also lost her job a year later.

So I know how you feel, and you're in my thoughts and prayers that you will land on your feet.
The stress of not knowing is unbearable and takes it's toll.

Best of luck PC, keep us posted, ok? if you need to talk please PM me anytime. TC

Thanks TC. Much appreciated.

It may not come to the worst yet. Just a real sucky time for it to do if it does.

I'll figure something out.
