      Settled at last. I don't think they come out of this looking too great.

          The undoing and the flight attendant have been both very enjoyable viewing with the missus.
          I feel raised by wolves should be right up my alley but something about the opener didn't grip me.

            Great to see the money this side of Christmas ! Do they care how they look? 2-5% of 1.9 Bn is €38,000,000 - €95,000,000

            edit even divided by 2 - I don't know how they calc market size maybe 50 either side of a market is a 100 market, even still BIG BUCKS. They were paid handsomely to keep it open for the idiots

              I bought a golf club from the US which I shipped to the AnPost AddressPal hub in NJ. It usually gets registered and shipped out within 1-2 days, total turnaround is 6-8 working days.

              I had one delivered to the hub on Nov 28th and it’s yet to be registered. Any time before end of Jan is a potential win. Generally it’s a good service, they charge 15e shipped to Ireland where most others are 60-80e

                  An Post is pure pot luck these days. Had a box leave Germany with DHL who use An Post here. Left on 19th November, still no sign on 8th of December and their tracking ends once it hits Ireland. They sent another lot on the 9th (last Thursday) and that arrived yesterday. First lot arrived this morning

                    I was looking at buying something from the UK last night and probably needed to use parcel motel. I thought I'd take a quick look at their social media and website in case there are delays.

                    Absolute radio silence from the company online. Nothing but irate punters saying they've essentially stopped picking up the phone and responding to emails. Missing packages and big delays everywhere. It looks really bad for the company. I haven't used them in a coupe of months.

                    Not a fun time to be in any kind of logistics business I'd imagine.

                      Even less fun relying on them (not their fault i know). 17 pallets on route for a new hotel build. Might just turn phone off till January.

                        Guy I know brought out this . If you like flamenco guitar perhaps you might help pay for his efforts. At the moment hes just covering costs but this is a fine body of work by any standards .

                                  So maybe it was as simple as being that all that 1.1 money was coming from true believers. I can't even laugh its too funny

                                    Never knew the death penalty in Japan was still done by hanging. Seems a tad barbaric in this day and age. At least they do the Long Drop.

                                          On the positive experience side, I had a package leave Bergen yesterday at 16.38

                                          It's since been to Stavanger, Copenhagen, East Midlands and now Dublin, where it is out for delivery, 19 hours later.

                                          That package has travelled more than me these last 9 months.

A shite presentation is a shite presentation no matter what and will hamper your career so there's no point pussyfooting around it. We all know people who have been held back due to an inability to present themselves. Now the obvious important issue is were they ever trained in how to present well - as its not something that comes automatically to a lot of people - yet we kinda just assume students have worked it out.

A shite presentation is a shite presentation no matter what and will hamper your career so there's no point pussyfooting around it. We all know people who have been held back due to an inability to present themselves. Now the obvious important issue is were they ever trained in how to present well - as its not something that comes automatically to a lot of people - yet we kinda just assume students have worked it out.
                                                                        It's more what was said 'off camera' I'm wondering about.

                                                                        Is this type of lingo common practice and seen as acceptable among faculty, or are these two just outlying assclowns?

Got interrupted on Sunday(really though, could have picked a better time than the all Ireland hurling final for a Limerick man!) because somebody bought multiple items for sale and she was absolutely thrilled.. like mumbling her words with excitement kind of thrilled. I honestly posted on here to get a few random follows to make her day, but yeah, Strewel, have a lot of gratitude for you! If there is any issue whatsoever with them, let me know!

Now you can stick in whoever\whatever you like and they can even change sex in between bouts. Unfortunately there seems to be more kiddie pervs about these days. (apart from the clergy) . Roots these feckers out and clear them out we can then say we’ve made progress. This is the single biggest challenge to our collective morals. Whoever finally manages to break up these nets deserve the highest accolades awarded to man. To even contemplate what is going on is enough to drive you to mass murder.
