I hope you don’t get covid. If you do, Christmas is screwed as is the relationship. The lesser of the two evils would have been to firm up those balls for the greater good. Probably would have helped the relationship for which this has only generated even more unanswered questions.. have a great day though, don’t propose Laughing out loud

Whilst that might seem like a good idea, I imagine it would be extremely difficult to socialise and start a relationship during this shit show so be confident its the right choice.

Just paid for a place on Air BNB.

Now the seller is saying they (air bnb) under priced it and looking for a higher rate.

What's my options ?

Dickhead move, but not much you can do. AirBnb may give you a voucher for a certain amount off your next stay though (subject to minimum). I got this when a host cancelled on me earlier this year.

How long after leaving somewhere should the MacBook they gave you become 'yours'. I left three months ago and there's zero effort made on their part to collect it

Asked for it about two months ago, said they'd book a courier, set a time but they didn't go through with it and haven't said anything since.

If it helps matters, I did not enjoy working there and they made me work my full three month notice there out of spite.

VCCP? Just keep quiet and carry on. Most company machines are on a 3-year lease anyhow with an small fee at the end if they want to purchase so im sure it's been forgotten about now.

I walked out of M&C with a laptop, monitor, mouse, and half the stationery cupboard and no one came chasing.

Most IT departments will do a yearly audit of their assets and it will probably get flagged then.
Also, buy your own MacBook Rez! Ya shite

Don't underestimate the incompetence of many businesses to not understand their asset footprint tech or otherwise.

Just wipe it to remove any trackers AV, management tools etc, rebuild and carry on. 100% they have forgotten and it's now yours.

Well done for missing the most valid point, that he clearly does want to be in the relationship and it was everyone else telling him to jump ship. Work on your comprehension mate Roll Eyes
