I can't believe they got you to do a background check with Experian before they even met you, thats just stupid, employers are getting too bloody demanding.

McCann (huge advertising group) amongst all the other bits of interview they do, send you a taxi to take you to your one on one interview and the driver 'casually' drops in questions about why you want to do advertising etc (while completely denying any link with McCann) and it's all filmed Laughing out loud

So bored of these celeb-olympians now. Hope the coach crashes on the way to the palace.

Same, so boring. Not a fan of celebrity culture anyway but they're so plain it kind of defeats the point. Nothing to laugh at.

I'd prefer celebs to actually have talent compared to the "famous for being famous" Kim Kardashian types.

I'm sure you can change this in the printer settings cant you (not just the print manager box in word)? Something like disabling the colour cartridge.

Got a canon printer that does this, apparently you need a colour cartridge with some ink in order to print b&w. Evil
Leaving the empty colour cartridge in it doesn't fool it either!

I just looked it up in my instructions as well, and it said it should do it but then it says you need to replace the ink cartridge for it to print b&w mode as well

Epson here, total pile of crap.
Couldn't get my usual cartridges over Christmas so had to buy from the highstreet which was a rip off.
But less off a rip off than Epson who charge £30 quid for the pleasure Evil

Every-time my ink runs out I have set up the thing from scratch, print off the colour alignment page, and reset up the scanner. Evil

On all the Canons I've owned all you have to do is hold down cancel and then it'll let you print.

It's a fucker when you realise it's cheaper to buy a new printer with 2 cartridges in the box than 2 new cartridges

When staff ask work related questions in the car park at 8.40am before you've got in the building, after having a week off and you've forgot everything. Cuuuunnntsss.

Back to work moan over.
