One can only have so much frankincense and myrrh.

Nyuck nyuck.

Thanks, chris.

"Nextdoor" is a laundry list of muggings, moans about dog poop, and cars blocking driveways.  It gets to where it's hard to bear all the gnashing of teeth and the trolls.

Not sure but I think that I actually envy them.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

I'm sorry, goldie.  It's always better to go on your own terms and at a time of your choosing.

You have my sympathy: screw them for the maximum in termination payment.

As you would know in law it is set to a maximum payout unless a redundancy package is in place ( which there is not). If made compulsory then I leave on the spot. not £20000 ish which is ok if I get a job straight away ish)

I'm sorry, goldie.  It's always better to go on your own terms and at a time of your choosing.

Agree with you but The place is so mismanaged. Management had a recent restructure to make us more  competitive to obtain orders, all it did was increase middle and top management personnel and pay. I knew it was coming as I categoricity refuse to allow goods to be shipped to customers that are out of spec where as the team leader is a little more blase.
I think its time

Happy sweet 16 to Ms. Smokes.  I hope she had fun.  It must be a curious thing to watch one's children turn into adults.

Is it a career change sort of thing? Congrats either way.

A proper job, after all these years? Be careful you don't strain something!

It's easier for me to count the parts of me that I don't strain. And I'm not joking!

Glad you got something quickly. Hope it's a decent job and not just a necessity.

Back into engineering, better pay, similar work ish, But the best thing is 14 mins from my home so no car needed  :) 4 nights a week.  :o
I agree with your second statement, sums me up atm.

I hope so, it seems a decent place, plenty of work and should sort me out till I retire in a few years (tic toc)

That's useful. If you're on similar pay (or less but bolstered by your redundancy) then this seems like a blessing in disguise.
