  • Good News Thread

    I thought it would be a good thing to start this, see if people like it.
    Any good news at all. a baby, a new dog, finally got that difficult-to-reach itch, doesn't matter.

    I'll start us off, cos I got a bit of a lift. Where I work decided that they don't need 25% of us, about 130 people to go.
    Not such good news. Separately (they swear...) we have been doing a competency review (puke, HR speak) to align job titles with sites in the US.
    So, I have been basically doing the job above, and now they've given it to me . Great news, and apparently we'll look at money in Oct (which is weird but gift horse...). Delighted!
    It is a bit odd with redundancies as well, and doesnt guarantee anything, but hey, I'll take my lift where I can get it

    Anyone got any more, always cheers me up.

        Funnily enough we had our first hospital appointment last week and the Doctor looking at paperwork starts out with,

        'So this is your 3rd child Mrs Foyle?'

        Queue some nervous laughter, eh no!

        'Ah ok, must be a mistake with the paperwork, can I ask if you are the Father Mr. Foyle?'

        Ah here, leave it out will ya!!

          Great news Foyler, in other great news we have no babies arriving this year, maths decrees that it probably won't happen either. Thank funk.

          Other good news is we are looking for more staff now as the work load has increased dramatically quite recently
          If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

            The background is that I have a 320d with blue coolant so it should be due a change. this could be painful because there is an intercooler, an electric power steering motor and a huge undertray in the way.

            The good news is that I've just found out that the original coolant has a ten year life so I don't have to do anything for another six years.

                    Only now ? I thought you were way further along than that.

                    If you bring the champagne I'll buy the chips.

                        Yeah only now, 6.5 years on. It's not too bad is it? She said yes anyway so I gauged it just right. In doubt I'll get home until Nov/Dec' but I'll organise a few magnums. Any excuse for a party !
                        On an important note, does anyone know anyone in Mallorca with SLS I can borrow

                              Staggered low offset wheels fitted, and the arches didnt need rolling, fingers crossed I have got away with it.
