Hang on a second:
You failed the test for basic code and you are re-applying for the same type of employment at the same company.

Can you code now? Perhaps mention that in your cover letter and call the HR department...

just a thought.

You ended up buying a limp and tasteless pizza, right.

I know... the toppings are sparse and the dough is also shit?.

What did you have for dessert?

Honest question:
If you moved away many years ago, why would you still keep a bank account and funds here (surely any business that you had here has been well and truly wound up after 3, or 6 years) ?

Seems like another day in paradise.
Could have easily happened in the UK one would imagine... except the daycare would have been costly.

If you had only bought the scanner from Clas Olsson all of this shit would not have happened. Again.

Reckon you have yourself to blame there, but I keep enjoying the wo is me stories, so please let us know how your day is tomorrow.

Enjoy yer cuppa tea.

Complaining about the price of a razor blade. Really? Is this what the Forum has come to.

The user could try one of the feminine razors - I have seen some stunning results when they have been used (and they could suit the user, who also comes across as a bit of a c**t).

Anyone seen a second hand jump-suit lying around?
A real came-toe shower...

Nice to see the lads doing well - I laid down my bat & retired about five years ago, when Sweden had a pretty decent team.

Hope they keep going and the ICC gives them some more funding!

£10 for one off the wrist.

I thought this thread had something to do with Monty Panesar (finally) learning how to bowl.

There are plenty of folks out there with licenses to serve booze that don't know Swedish - just as there are plenty of English / Irish pubs that are not English, or Irish at all.

Go for it.

Depending on where it is located & if it has Sky, I could probably keep the bar in business!

Added to this, she has been training in Australia with members of their swim team for 2 or 3 months, so I'm sure she knew the rules considering the amount of time these folks spend at the pool, training, etc.

Re: her modest bits. She doesn't have much to cover, so I'm not sure of her argument there... laugh.gif

Hardly International News. I'd say this is one for the 'Only in America' thread.


ps: I wouldn't piss on her if she was on fire.

mmm. sounds like there have been a few things well hung around the neck area... best we leave it, wouldn't want to give it too much lip service (plus this thread might be truncated due to a subject change).
