InWonderland - that's awful. Hope you're recovering well.

Some blokes are just from another planet - think they're irresistable and that all they need to do is look you up and down and kiss their teeth and you'll do them, there and then!

Some dirty ol' letch was feeling me up on a packed tube the other week - told him loudly to take his hands off of me… people all around, no more than a foot away just looked at the floor, at the ceiling etc. Wouldn't do anything.

eBay just pulled all my listings because of seller standards (4 people out of 100 have rated my postage costs as 1 or 2 stars, which is complete bullshit anyway. Most people haven't got a clue how much postage actually costs). I have 100% feedback and nearly 7,000 feedback marks over 11 years.

I emailed them at the weekend asking why my listings were restricted and they said there's nothing to worry about, just improve. So I started offering free postage so I don't get any more problems and now they go and do this. Really don't understand what the deal is.

That sounds like a nightmare.

I have got home from uni, and an old iphone and 50mm canon camera lens have gone missing with no explanation, I am fuming!

It's like when Ebay decided that there was a maximum you could charge for shipping a jacket, regardless of if it was a windrunner, a blazer or a leather bike jacket which could weigh a lot. I stopped selling stuff when they started dictating what you could charge.

They have managed to just about suck all the fun out of Ebay, you don't get bargains anymore and dealing with them, PayPal and a lot of sellers, makes it not worth the effort.

There's an option (possibly not with all items) to say that it's a bulky or heavy item and will be sent via a courier, without the need to put a price in. Then you can put the price in the listing itself. But then you have to spend time telling the shipping price to all the mongs who haven't read to the bottom of the listing.

If it's not urgent you can send them with MyHermes for just over 4 quid, but it takes 3 to 5 days.

It annoys me them people that do they rating stuff. As long as it gets to me I just tick 5 stars on everything.

I bought something off someone for 150 last week and the idiot didnt do it tracked/signed for or anything! Sent last Tuesday, still not turned up. Not really helping me either.

Making me feel he sold it to someone else.

First, future landlord decides to add £120 per person onto the deposit for next years house. So we all go and scrounge the extra money (nan-kid). He then says that he's busy until today and can't do any more viewings or accept deposits from anyone else so we've got it. Phone the fucker up today and he took a deposit off someone on monday (he told me he was busy till wednesday on sunday). Fucking tool. This has now led to one person dropping out the group to stay living at home, so all the other houses we've viewed / have viewings for are useless. Proper bad mood.

Thank you for taking the time to attend the assessment center . The calibre of candidates this year has been extremely high and it is with regret that I have to inform you that, on this occasion, you have not been successful in your application.

Because i didn't perform well at those psychometric test -which dont give true reading of the person-i didn't get the job.

meh

Aha, dont worry bout your one, the Psychometric testing regards your reasoning, working memory and spatial visualisation. Many employers seem to base recruitment aspects on it now, my feedback for the day said i interviewed really well and was a likeable person, yet because i didnt perform well at these tasks i was a weaker candidated.

The group exercise i undertook was with 3 other people, then a panel of 4 people watching you, one assigned to each of you. There was a bag of building blocks sat on the table and you had to replicate this model that was behind a screen within half an hour. You were allowed 7 separate 15 second "peeks" at the model, yet once you went and looked when you came back you were not allowed to touch the blocks, only instruct, forcing you into a management role of the team. Was alright, just annoying when you get that one over enthusiastic HR candidate too keen to try to perform in front of the panel.
