Thank fuck Australia tightened up it's gun laws!

Edit: Mil seriously though don't go all guns blazing with the emails, guarantee emotional led stuff like that always makes a situation worse.

Might be worth speaking to someone outside your friends and family, especially if a lot of them are also impacted, or just to get some info on grief. www.cruse.org.uk

Griefs been part of life for as long as there has been life. LFC is a grown man, I'm sure he'll deal with it, humans are made to deal, adapt and keep going.

Yeah rez, you might be right about the emails, still I'm pretty sure the hiring manager was negligent and created a shitty situation with the people I work next to. I look like a fucking fool, being there longer, doing better work and the only one to miss out on an interview.

Brave to come out with that admission on FUK, LFC - especially so soon after checksuitgate Eye-wink Like most normal blokes I'm all for bottling it up but as has been mentioned there are obvious benefits of talking about shit like this if you're able to find someone who you feel comfortable confiding in. Chin up, son.

Cool

I'm up drafting emails on how I've been humiliated in front of my colleagues for being so obviously snubbed. If they don't give me any good feedback on why then I'm gonna start sending emails to people higher up.

I'm no expert and this isn't intended to be condescending, but play it completely neutral and humble when seeking feedback. Don't forget the person hired might screw it up so you don't want to burn your bridges yet. I think you have said there aren't many other options where you live, but an internal promotion seems less common than going external to get more $, so treat it as training / practice a move elsewhere.

Do you apply the SEAL/military style thinking (-n.b. please don't go on a gun rampage) of reaching perfection via overcoming challenge to your work life?

Laughing out loud

Thanks all. I have no shame in real life really so it’s actually easier to come to the internet with it I suppose. It was my Nan who’s brought me up and looked after me my whole life(33). I spoke to her every day and seen her at least twice a week so it’s that part of it that’s getting me down. I’ll go to txt her after Liverpool games then realise.

Being a Dad of 3 keeps me occupied though but my spending has gone mad trying to compensate the happiness I think which never works in the end.

I doubt I’ll ever go and find someone to speak to as it makes no difference I don’t think. I’ve had and have tuns of shit in my life (me Mum’s had Leukaemia for 2 years), and you just carry on and get on with it, got to be sound for the kids.

See it’s quite easy to just type your problems out Laughing out loud

My gran passed away last year and although I didn’t have as close a relationship as you did with yours, due to geography really, we still spoke a lot and I saw her when ever I could. The thing I’ve found is that talking about her and sharing memories with family has really helped.
My girlfriend lost her gran when she was 16 but her family are always talking about her - she was quite the matriarch figure - always telling funny stories etc
When my gran passed I found it really hard to talk about but I tried to follow their example and it’s helped focus on happy/funny memories

Sorry to hear it mate.
Grandparents on both sides of my family passed when I was around 2-3 years old so I don't really remember anything about them.
I definitely envy you. Even though she's passed on, I bet you have some great memories.
