    What’s wrong with that? Obviously you’re exaggerating with the “full life story” stuff but fair play to her, i’d prefer that than the opposite. Maybe instead of her “talking at you” you let her talk with you? 1) she’s new and it’s never comfortable being the new one and 2) she clearly wants to be someone you can consider a “work mate” and team player.

    Would you prefer her to distance herself from everyone? Make herself feel unwanted and shit? Make you and everyone feel you can’t trust her? Or would you rather her engage and help you pass on the work days with natter? I know which i’d prefer. It’s not even about the quality of conversation for me.

    Why does it have to be one extreme or the other? Perhaps somewhere in the middle?

    They were up against the worst chaser by some distance though, so easy pickings.

    The middle is good also. But i’d prefer both to the non-talker. At least she wants to chat l, that’s a sign of someone who isn’t going to separate themselves from the group.

    Calm down mate. Was only having a moan and as I said, I'm not well and patience is thin. She's not a team player, she doesnt want to be there, wants to be in a different department and has made that very clear from day one, she even asked for a transfer infront of some of the staff today. Wouldnt matter if she was for staying with us, I choose not to listen to inane drivel just for the sake of it.

    Okay...

    Love to know what the post is about but I have a feeling it’ll be a damp squib when we do find out.

    Did you see the question he (Chaser) got wrong about which Movie (and I'm paraphrasing her) used the words 'I like to stuff things' ? I for one do NOT believe he (a Master Mind Champ) did not know that.

    I'll be honest, I didn't know that one either, but not knowing Estoril was in Portugal and not Spain for example was astonishingly poor.

    When people take something remarkably common that they like and try and spin it in to some unique personality trait because they’re void of actual personality.

    “Am i the only one who loves documentaries about serial killers?”

    Yeah, that’s why Netflix pump them out at a rate of about one a day, it’s all entirely for you.

    Seconded.

    This latest ‘unpopular opinion’ thing on Twitter whereby someone starts off saying “unpopular opinion but ...” and then follows it up with a pretty normal opinion.

    “Unpopular opinion but ISIS are a bit shit”

    Bleeds post made me think of exactly this but you beat me to it.

    UNPOPULAR OPINION: insert extremely popular opinion.

    F*ck off.

    When talking about football, someone ending their point by saying "on to the next game", "we move on", or some similar trite. Well, of course another game is looming, that tends to be the nature of football.

    Sister in law....every f*cking day without fail she posts on FB how amazing either her hubby, son or grandkids are. We then get the sickly comments from the same people saying how lucky she is blah blah to be blessed. Even her own sister says she loves the attention. Yes we know you love them all and they are your world but we don't need telling every single day.

    Still on a rant......partners niece....she has a daughter who is four and a new born son.... she will put up 20 plus photos every day of the youngsters. This is daughter playing, this is daughter who has slightly moved, and moved again etc etc etc.

    Like to have a nose what is going on with old buddies, pop the odd photo of the little lad on maybe once every two weeks. Rarely post a comment though.

    Suppose it is like shit TV, if you don't like it then don't view it. Always do something else.

    I haven't been on Facebook for about 6 years as I hate people bragging about how perfect their lives are.

    Plus I used to say a lot of daft stuff when i was pissed and regret it the next day.
