Cheer on a Rainy Monday Thread 14:04 - Feb 27 with 1817 viewsrobith

New starter at work today. We always make them do 3 facts about themselves which one of the owners reads out during our weekly team presentation. One of new guy's facts were that he was a Chelsea fan, the first we've hired., In the weekly presentation there will be a slide on each new starter as the presenter tells everyone there facts.

Imagine my joy that one of the owners embedded a gif of the John Terry penalty miss into his intro slide and left it up on a loop while we told everyone the facts about this guy. Cue much laughter and a warm fuzzy feeling inside. Set me up proper for the rest of the rest of the day.

Share some Rangers related cheer

I had a colleague who was a proper amazeballs jubilympic comms type who saw my mug with views of LR, and declared herself a Chelsea and Fulham fan. She didn't last long.

A magnificent football club, the love of our lives, finding a way to finally have its day in the sun.

That 3 facts thing is a great idea.

All of our new starters are encouraged to do a 'fist' during the company meeting at the end of their first week, it's five shots in a row, usually of vodka but can be sambucca if you don't like vodka (so called as it's 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, FIST!).

You soon learn about your new hires once you put 5 vodkas inside them.

Current record for completing is just shy of 7 seconds.

I once went on a days training course for work where we were asked to write down information about ourselves including 2 interesting facts, and then the course coordinator would introduce everyone and read out their cards.

As you can imagine most of these were boring old shite but one bloke had obviously done too many of these courses so had now got to the point of not giving a flying one. So his two interesting facts were:

1) My penis is the same size as an argos pen.
2) I'm no longer allowed in argos.

It gave everyone a good laugh and helped break the boredom.

I purchased a bag of Waitrose wine gums today, I was so happy to discover that the majority of said wine gums in the bag were either the delicious black or red wine gums, how often does that happen eh? Its a well known scientific fact that the majority of wine gums found in a bag of Waitrose wine gums are mostly those horrible green or yellow wine gums (when I say horrible what I really mean is not so scrumptious).
Anyway, I'm obviously beside myself with joy and cheer but please don't bother asking me "can I have a sweet please Ted"? because I've eaten them all and that is the truth.

My Father had a profound influence on me, he was a lunatic.

While teaching, we had an 'I Am Me' campaign where all staff were encouraged to write a quick line about what made them unique or some such s hite. This was then put on a (laminated) poster on your classroom door along with your grinning face. For some reason, this was not seen as making you look an absolute c unt.

My suggestion of 'I neither know nor care - I am me' was not viewed in a positive light and I was asked to do another. My second suggestion 'I am the objective form of the personal pronoun "I" - I am me' was taken in much the same way and they stopped asking.

'What do we want? We don't know! When do we want it? Now!'

You need to be very careful as I made the mistake of telling work colleagues I was an extra on Grange Hill when I was young and was then introduced as "you might recognise him as Roland from Grange Hill" to any new starter.

I think I will go with the Argos Pen fact in future.

So you don't have weekly company meetings down in Berkshire then Tedward?

What a load of old pony. If my job told me that we conducted weekly meetings and new staff have to do a presentation telling 3 facts I'd resign on the spot.

I've got some pandshop wine gums in the bottom of my sports bag. They've been there since Christmas and look a bit minging. I'll eat them tomorrow at work.
