PS Has a team that played in the Premier League ever been relegated to the non-league? We're "trying" our best to achieve that! ?

Oldham Athletic have had a good go at it...

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 didn't think Notts County had ever played in the Premier League?

I thought they were in the first season - did they just miss it?

Luton Town came pretty close - they were relegated on the last day from the top division the year before the Premier League started, by failing to beat Notts County, who were already down. They had five years in the conference/national league.

I'm submitting my work expenses and my full 17 day mammoth request was rejected by my boss as i was 100 INR over budget on one day.

100 INR = 1.12 GBP

100 INR = 1.96 SGD

I will now have to submit the claim again, which will take me a few hours as i have to itemise absolutely everything. 

Despite being made redundant, i agreed to travel to India for 17 days as it was the right thing to do - I now have 35 days of office time left before i leave and i have less than 0 motivation. I have negative motivation.

I am absolutely integral to the success of the migration and they've managed to create negative motivation. 

Anger has been replaced by apathy and a genuine enthusiasm to do as little as possible.

 

 

My good late friend Klaus told an expenses story...

 

On an overseas trip to somewhere very sunny he invested in a sunhat.  On returning to the UK he submitted an expenses claim which alongside the usual hotels, taxis and meals, included one sunhat - bonce for the protection of.  His manager rejected the claim saying that this was not a legitimate expense.  Undeterred, at the next expenses run, Klaus once again claimed for the sunhat with a further explanation of why it had been necessary.  Again it was rejected, this time with a little more vehemence from the manager.  The following month Klaus again submitted his expenses, this time in person.  "Thank you Klaus" said the manager, "and I hope I don't see that bloody sunhat in there again".  

 

"Don't worry" said Klaus, "you won't see the sunhat, but it is there."

Some barsteward in a blue Honda Jazz has collided with my car which was parked outside of a patient I was visiting. I heard the bang and someone told me they had seen the scrote drive away. 
Ironically I had originally parked on the opposite side of the road. I thought my back end was sticking out a bit so I got back in and moved it to the "safe" side of the street!
I don't think its much but I will have a better look in the morning.

Notts Co were relegated before the Premiership.  Forest were relegated in the first season.

Absolutely amazing.

The block of flats where I live has had a dodgy front door latch since before I moved in 18 months ago. The management company got round to changing the lock last week, but I didn't get a key. I've had to shoulder charge my way in, or leave the door on a latch every time I have gone out. I have just rang the company, and they have sent the new key (Singular) to my landlord, based in France. What use is that. I now have to traipse over to Eastbourne to get the new key!

Took my granddaughter to see Santa yesterday (the real one obviously) at the garden centre.  £12 and £3 for every adult accompanying her!!!
