    Nah, don't know him, sounds like a knob though!! Is he a gaffer, if so, he will be a knob!

    Try and get caught surfing the web in company time, particularly if its Billy, he just becomes a walk over!!

    Its great, they give you money to **** off, and give em ****!

    Easy up oscar lad!

    You a dad yet? Changing nappies and no sleep - I envy you! Nah seriously, good on you ;)

    Games on phones ?[face_plain] I'm lost too with it, I just enquired about a site that Will went onto to get Pacman and other games, and it seems everyone is on to it. I ain't got a decent phone at the moment, but I'm due for an upgrade soon so will be taking part in it all. Any suggestions for a decent phone? Preferably Nokia.

    Roll on Friday evening!! :D

    Bae has proper messed up mate. I went to get all my leaving forms signed. When I went to finance he had alot of queries about my overtime and holidays etc because no one at woodford hr had told him that we were on the four day shift and not the old five days...... this meant he had to do a load of different sums n changing stuff about so jst gotta wait til the 13th to see if he has done it right.... watch this space..... btw i told him who was on the four day shift now so u dnt need to contact pay dept!

    Any news on jobs for you lot yet?

    We had a meeting the other day with the company.

    The company did not show up!

    B*st*rds!!!

    we have been given 5 options,

    1) stay at good old Wood, (my first choice obviously)
    2) Go to warton and salmsbury
    3) Go to Chester
    4) Change to a technical apprenticeship
    5) Take VR.

    No one thought of keeping us at wood and changing our NVQ to suit the type of work we have here. THICK B*ST*RDS!!!!!!!!!


    Snooker anyone???

    I am amazed at your tone Phil, you should know by now that the company is ******* useless, and ultimately they couldn't give a flying **** about you all. Option number 5 is your best option and get into the real world where the options won't be 5 pathetic choices, but whatever you are wishing to make of it.


    I'll play you at Snooker soon, I need to claim my championship! :p

    hi all,

    not a dad yet dave, just under 2 weeks to go till the due date, but the first is normally late. (specially if it takes after me!!)

    what great choices the company's given us, asked when we'd hear any results and they answered a totally different question. dicks.

    hows uni dave, what jobs has everyone ended up with??

    Keep us posted about when the baby rears its head. You know if its a boy or a girl yet, or is it a surprise?

    Unis good mate, first week back after exams is pretty easy going, you know; show up to lecture, pick up syllabus and course notes, go away, come back next week. So not surprisingly I'm playing a lot of pool!!

    Btw, did you see the blues last night!! :D How the **** they did that I'll never know, you won't see a comeback like that for a long time!

    if bae phoned u up a week after u had left saying u owed them £800 because they made a mistake would you:-

    a) give it them back, appologise for their mistake n give them extra for their hardship.

    b) laugh then go n hide.

    c) get straight on the fone to the union and kick off, fax them the paper work then sit back n wait for a result hoping it will go ur way.

    d)get on a plane 2 cuba!

    now then now then answers on a postcard to

    mr rodders
    rodders house
    cuba

    oh yeh n well done city
