Spent the day revising CISCO router labs...  exam soon I think!


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

I've got the VAT lady coming to see me on 30th May.

She wants 4 years books.

We've only been going 3.

This may not end well.

Hints:

 

- Be helpful

- give everything asked for with a smile

- be prepared to prove everything with indisputable proof in the form of bank statements or third party receipts.

- best tea, china and biscuits!

 

I walked out of mine with them issuing me a refund cheque because I'd been too cautious in recovering some VAT on expenditure that I thought was marginal.

 

The VAT people are by far the most helpful of all HMRC employees but if you give them the slightest hint that you're hiding something then you could be there for days going through every single penny of expenditure and revenue.

To be fair to HMRC I've never found them to be anything other than completely helpful, my only concern is the MD who is what I can only describe as a tw@ of the highest order and I could easily see him trying to be clever with them, which could have a very tedious result.

You may have to win her over with your charm and wit.

Been nice knowing you.

If the MD is obstructive to them then he may find that he coincidentally gets a "random" personal tax audit as well in the next few months.  Now, those HMRC employees are a wee bit less friendly...

A friend of mine recently moaned that women had endured years of suffrage in the past. She didn't seem to cotton on when I suggested that she ought to do something about ending womens suffrage. :D

I work in construction, so this question was asked across the office;

 

"Do you have an erection pack ready for this job?"

 

The slight pause halfway through the sentence set me off with the giggles.


If you use "should of", "would of" or "could of", you are a moron.

Catastrophic mechanical on the way into work this morning. Chain slipped of the chainset, got dragged into the spokes and the back wheel locked up whilst I was going 20mph. Like a boss I managed to keep upright but my wheel needs re-spoking and my front derailleur is kaput :(. On the plus side it means an upgrade to Sram Red :D.

Wouldn't have happened if you'd got yourself a proper Sturmey-Archer in the first place.

I'm now convinced that I'm living in a Truman Show type of reality show.  I simply cannot believe that some people can be such narcissistic, racist, sexist, homophobic, arrogant, ignorant bullies and still get to very high positions in life without it being a made-up scenario to see how I react.  It wouldn't be so bad but the makers of the show have realised that I can ignore one or two of them easily but multiples in one organisation who only recognise and value others like them is surely just a step too far.  Ratings must be falling for them to get so obvious about it.

 

I KNOW YOU'RE WATCHING ME!  IF YOU WANT EXTRA RATINGS THEN AT LEAST GIVE ME SOME EXCITEMENT SUCH AS MY WIFE HAVING AN AFFAIR WITH ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL WOMAN AND THEY LET ME WATCH IN THE CORNER.
