I'd always be nice to call center people but christ vodafone drove me up the wall today, 45+ minutes and countless phonecalls to get past the robots, eventually they must have copped my multiple phonecalls and patched me through to a human. When I explained my simple query my answer was 'haha your answer would be no, but il put you on hold while I ask my colleague to make sure', no joke she actually laughed at me. It took a lot to be pleasant with her but I put it down to a language barrier. I can well imagine the abuse call center staff must have to put up with at times.

How awful

In leaving for Tipperary Christmas eve night, but have to come back Christmas day because I'm working at 6 am st Stephens day. I'm the only one traveling out of my team and others got it off, it's really annoying

I was called into work this morning, I thought I had the day off so was up till 4am watching movies and playing board games with my family. So needless to say when I got home I was very tired and went for a nap. When I woke up from the nap, I was spooning Dude. He crawled over me and into my arms so I could hug him while I slept, and cream crawled into the crooke behind my knees to sleep. I fell asleep cat less and woke up feeling loved

5 days of our christmas leave comes out of our annual leave, the rest of the days are public or bank holidays. I'd love to take more time but it'd just leave so little to be spread over the rest of the year.
I finish work on Monday evening, my husband on Tuesday evening (but he's on call for Christmas until he goes back to normal work on 2nd January) and I'm back on Monday, 5th January.

Had the big shop delivered this evening so nearly all set. Turkey and ham being picked up on Tuesday and Christmas cake coming on Wednesday.
We stay put for the whole of Christmas so we can spend as much time as possible with the dogs
