    Just a couple

    substitute unpretentious with genuine
    substitute visionary with strategic thinker

    add Active listener
    add Empathetic (maybe in place of people person)

    do you have organised in?

    Group them in similarity or have a few starting with the same letter for extra punch

    Does it have to be these single words or can you do a paragraph.

        No its just what others, think of me so basically I've no input, so anyone here that knows me very well or a few, have actually been at my work place that I have sold to. So basically it's you that has to tell me what you think of me. I asked one of my managers she said "Your authentic, loyal, motivating and passionate."

        I asked my old manager who said I was not passionate, that I'm quite flexible with my feelings.

        So they are from managers, point of views, so I'd like a few from friends and customers etc.

                          Just pulled the trigger on the Oculus Quest. Nothing like something being constantly out of stock to give you a bit of FOMO when stock becomes available. Most likely will become a dust collector after the first month.

                            Some cunts out there, as if people didn't know

                            I was dropping supplies over to my Dad over the weekend and he lets slip he got a large phone bill. When I looked at the text from 3, it was for 175 quid. I thought that couldn't be right and said I'd check it out. Now, the amount isn't the issue, he can pay it but something didn't seem right to me on it.

                            I rang 3 and pretended to be my Dad and played dumb asking why the bill was so high. Turns out he's on a plan from way back, one that does exist anymore which is 150 minutes for about 55 quid a month and when he changed his phone recently, they kept him on the same plan. I tell them I want to change as there is better options out there but am told I'm locked into a two year contract so essentially tough luck.

                            I change tact at this point and tell them I'm not my Dad and I'm not happy about this only to be told they can't deal with me due to Data Privacy laws so I hand the phone to my Dad who tells them I am authorized to deal on his behalf. I let 3 know that Dad is in his late 70's, not really got the full faculties and that whoever worked in the shop where he changed his phone clearly took advantage of him by keeping him on a plan that no longer existed and that I wasn't going to let this lie.

                            All of a sudden the tone is changed and I'm asked if I can be put on hold. 10 minutes later, I'm told the bill will be a 90 quid refund to the bill and the plan will be changed to 350 minutes for 45 a month. I know there is better options out there but thought this was a decent result without having to try get the whole contract voided and starting elsewhere.

                            I tried to see if this was the 1st large bill he got but he swerved all questions and I think he was a bit embarrassed which annoyed me more.

                            Then just before I left, he says, it all about money this week, which has me worried. Turns out the lad that has been coming in to do a bit of gardening for my Dad has been coming back afterwards and asking for extra cash, not for the work done but coming out with sob stories . Dad claims he hasn't given him anything but I have my doubts.

                            I phoned your man today so he won't be asking for any more cash and he won't be doing any more work either.

                            Really bugs me that people try take advantage of elderly people

                              Might be worth a letter? The fact they didn't try to move his plan is disgraceful. Did he even get a phone worthy of such a contract length? I doubt he needs a phone like that either way.

                                  The phone is a piece of shit but it's basic and fairly easy for him to use so it serves a purpose but in no way worthy of such a contract.

                                    Hard to believe someone in that line of work didn't know what they were doing. He could have got a Galaxy S10 on that contract price/length free with unlimited calls/texts/data.

                                    Edit - I agree with 6Star that the way to go in his case is the unlimited prepaid plans for under 20 but the guy who sold the ridiculous package could have at least given him a fancy phone if he was going to upsell and be a cunt.

                                      Given the amount of monthly plans for 20 quid and under that give unlimited minutes, even 45 a month is a ridiculous amount to pay. Also, yes, people that take advantage of older people are utter cunts.

                                        ah man, I hate that. They're not breaking the law technically, but its absolute abuse of the elderly. Might want to change all of his contracts if you have a few moments as they do this across all utility bills for the elderly.

                                          Loads of plans out there tell them to stick there contract up there holes. I’d be raging and as for the handy man coming in and sob stories not a bit surprising. When you have been around poker gambling nothing to do with scamming snakery would surprise me.

                                                  Sent my presentation for interview next week to a few people yesterday for advice and they ripped it to shreds. Wrote a new one today and they've pissed themselves laughing. Bastards. I see their points on both presentations but .... Need to submit it tomorrow as seemingly they need 6 days to upload it to zoom for the interview on Wednesday.

                                                            So my workmate, a sound lad real good craic, get on great with him has been sending me a few BLM memes over Whatsapp. Ranging from mildly funny to kinda a bit, eh, racist.

                                                            'How to break up a BLM protest' with a kid shouting 'Are you my Dad?'. That sort of thing. Stuff I wouldn't share on.

                                                            How do you deal with that?

                                                            I just replied to him calling him a mad cunt.

I know shraaaaap mentioned something like this recently too, but I have limited time to check these things out these days. Feel free to remind me again if I haven't mentioned it in a while.

In theory you can get negative points for things (mod actions mostly) and positive things. I have it set up very basically at the minute as it's a bit daft really. The 'levels' are defined by me,so I put about 2 seconds thought into a few words like 'ok, good, great, fantastic, stupendous' and so on.

                                                                                              I was dropping supplies over to my Dad over the weekend and he lets slip he got a large phone bill. When I looked at the text from 3, it was for 175 quid. I thought that couldn't be right and said I'd check it out. Now, the amount isn't the issue, he can pay it but something didn't seem right to me on it.

                                                                                              I rang 3 and pretended to be my Dad and played dumb asking why the bill was so high. Turns out he's on a plan from way back, one that does exist anymore which is 150 minutes for about 55 quid a month and when he changed his phone recently, they kept him on the same plan. I tell them I want to change as there is better options out there but am told I'm locked into a two year contract so essentially tough luck.

                                                                                              I change tact at this point and tell them I'm not my Dad and I'm not happy about this only to be told they can't deal with me due to Data Privacy laws so I hand the phone to my Dad who tells them I am authorized to deal on his behalf. I let 3 know that Dad is in his late 70's, not really got the full faculties and that whoever worked in the shop where he changed his phone clearly took advantage of him by keeping him on a plan that no longer existed and that I wasn't going to let this lie.

                                                                                              All of a sudden the tone is changed and I'm asked if I can be put on hold. 10 minutes later, I'm told the bill will be a 90 quid refund to the bill and the plan will be changed to 350 minutes for 45 a month. I know there is better options out there but thought this was a decent result without having to try get the whole contract voided and starting elsewhere.

                                                                                              I tried to see if this was the 1st large bill he got but he swerved all questions and I think he was a bit embarrassed which annoyed me more.

                                                                                              Then just before I left, he says, it all about money this week, which has me worried. Turns out the lad that has been coming in to do a bit of gardening for my Dad has been coming back afterwards and asking for extra cash, not for the work done but coming out with sob stories . Dad claims he hasn't given him anything but I have my doubts.

                                                                                              I phoned your man today so he won't be asking for any more cash and he won't be doing any more work either.

                                                                                              Really bugs me that people try take advantage of elderly people

But I'm two eps from finishing it and I dunno, has bits of modern political satire with the trump Twitter thing, China and Russia, Carell trying maybe to continue his The Office character too much, had a line that reminded me of his Brick character in Anchorman too.

                                                                                                                    It's prob aiming for a multi season run, but I cant see the bigger cast staying unless it's silly money involved.
