Cheers, Was just in clothing production working for a kidswear supplier, was really dull as was not what i want to be doing, the job was pretty much a glorified admin assistant and even when i worked in production before it was a bit more fashion orientated and interesting unlike Childrens character gear.
Been given a months pay so hopefully I can find something in online marketing/SEO quite quickly.

best - passed my FCP course & Apple certified as from yesterday

+ a little freelance work already in
+ job interview next week.
+ got a freebie from work - an original vintage Eames Rocker chair in orange.
+ the bug will have a brand new engine built by one of the best in the business at the end of this month & I'm back on the road.

worst - 2+K bill for the engine, washing machine is fucked - leaked on to kitchen floor destroying that, boiler has a problem with hot water and the oven switches itself off after 30 mins!

Worst: Cunting bank charging me 80 quid in unplanned overdraft fees. I didn't even know it was even possible for me to go overdrawn without an overdraft up until very recently.

Fucking nightmare this is, most banks will give you around £150 in a unplanned overdraft. Mine charges me the pleasure £22 each time. Up intill about 6 months ago i was being hit with charges every month. Managed to sort myself out in the said account but in Dec my phone and gas decided to come out days earlier then expected so i have £44 coming out tomorrow.

Evil

Shocking that the courts ruled that it wasn't illegal to charge that much…I did get over £1,000 back from my bank when everybody was threatening to take them to court, although that shows what a joke the situation is, that they could take that much money off me over a six years period.

Wouldn't worry about that. They get made redundant with kids = increased benefits. You get made redundant without kids = nothing.

Ever since I've had my card it's always worked in the same way. If there isn't money in my account then it gets declined, simple as that. They were pestering for ages like last year to upgrade my account since I turned 18, so I did, not really knowing what it entailed. Luckily I'd some how managed to never go overdrawn up until recently, unaware it was possible. Most annoying was I actually had the money in my account but took it out at the cashpoint, then they tried to take a payment I made that day, me thinking it had gone out of my account, 3 days later Puzzled Why didn't the pricks update my account in the normal way to tell me my my account balance and my actual balance I could withdraw? Evil I wouldn't have even took the money out if I'd known. It was difficult for me to keep track on how much I'd got left as I'd just been payed from work and instantly done loads of christmas shopping etc. Charges were so much because most of my letters including ones from the bank still go to my moms so I didn't even realise for a while, anyway…

Best: Mom's friend works in the bank I'm with and has somehow managed to reduce my charges to 20 quid.
