Neat little ones that fold back are delightful.

Mate, I've had female customers ringing me complaining that her flaps on her box are too big or they don't tuck in like they should, I've gotta try and keep my shit together and offer solutions without being me.

Through some labour hire company.

One Friday evening they wanted to extend the hours and work back til 2am instead 9pm, one big forky said, they said to hiim "we're putting on pizza for those that do", so he changed his mind and went with it.

The funny bit: He didn't want to stay back 5 hours at double time with 20% loading but he said no worries to some $5 domino's pizza.

My calculations put it down to him grossing an extra $450 for them 5 hours.

We have the same issues at work.
Leading to Christmas work was asking for about a 20 staff to work a Saturday mornings from 6am to 10am and they would earn about $400 plus if you did the work efficiently you could leave as soon as the work was completed (some Saturdays you could finish by 9am) and you still get paid for the full 4 hrs.
Only about 7 of us put up our hands initially but as soon a work said they would put on a BBQ every man and their dog put up their hands!

Shame you missed the greatest moment in ESPN Ocho's history, about 15 years ago Peter LaFleur lead Average Joe's Gym to win the Las Vegas Open Invitational with a come-from-behind, sudden-death dodgeball win over White Goodman and the GloboGym Purple Cobras.

Full credit must be given to Patches O'Houlihan for the intense training with minimal preparation time.

Some fine commentary by Cotton McKnight at the tight stages.

Listening to some Rodney Rude classics for the first time in years, I was crying with laughter.

Actually a decrease in tasks as I’m of the understanding that for the next few weeks they don’t actually have to fulfil their jobseeker tasks
