Probably because he asked a fairly personal question and got you being an elitist prick in response.

LFC don't reckon FUK is necessarily the place (evidently) but a pal has started CBT for some similarish things and seems to be going well.

That tune is deffo dodgy though

Depends what you’re claiming for? You can try to work out potential loss of earnings. Take into account how long you think you’ll likely be out of work for? (You can claim for up to 12 months) Years of service, age, statutory loss of rights, any bonuses, pension contributions etc

Also consider how strong a case you have, employment law isn’t like criminal law. It’s not so much a case of them having to prove you did something wrong, more that they had reasonable grounds to believe you’ve done something wrong and followed the correct processes thereafter.

It’s for unfair dismissal, I worked there for almost 15 years and have been out of work for 9 weeks, I need to come up with a figure and email they guy who’s currently looking at it, I want a reference and awarded a sum of money otherwise I will go to the tribunal. I just can’t think of a reasonable figure in what to ask for. I’m 33 and was in the process of a promotion and I believe there case is weak but if I can avoid the hassle I would just take if it is worth my while.

I do this to catch my shit so I can bury it in my garden. I'll be damned if the liberal elite get to have my shit for free. Fuck that marxist bullshit.

Just trying to not be a cunt tbh

Would've thought you'd be bang up for a discussion of mental health for men in today's society though Jords - that's an alt-right staple innit?

3 days a go I thought of an old song and couldn’t remember it only a small section that I could whistle.

After sending voice messages to friends and putting it on Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat stories and still not finding it, I had to resort to getting in my loft and digging out my Wigan Pier collection and try and listen through 1000’s of songs to try and find it.

My brain would not switch off and not let me leave it, I was stressed to the point where I couldn’t do anything until I found this song.

Anyone else suffer with anything like this?

Hocus Pocus - Bow Chi Bow

Also, I have Extreme Word Aversion, which is where the name of something affects me. For example in the fashion world, the word Orslow, even typing it then, makes my skin crawl and I can’t and couldn’t ever consider buying anything from them due to the name. It also happens with Atkinsons, a fragrance brand and tuns of other things in general life.

The only thing I got from this was Wigan Pier! Fuck about. Next you'll be telling me your were a Pleasure Rooms fan!

No, too far for us for getting home. I was 051 and Pleasure Rooms in City.

LFC if its getting bad speak to the GP and get a referral for CBT. It's really, really common, but people experience it in all sorts of different ways.

I used to have a problem where I kept visualising numbers, like 30654 and had to keep doing it for whatever reason. Just made myself stop and eventually went away, but have always leant towards the obsessive so I know its in my make up.

It sounds so minimal and pathetic, but its not much fun and saps enjoyment from things you do like.

Brothers got em and recommends them.
You can’t tell when he’s wearing them, he just takes them out to eat and pops them back in after.

The patent on Invisalign has run out now so they can be had for a lot cheaper than before. Think he paid around 2k.
