It happens. Have you tried asking them if they have any jobs going in their office? Play them at their own game?
Play the companies at their own game? When you see a job advertisement, you should just sent a letter, saying that you are sorry, but that you cannot work at their company, because... and then insert those reasons that company give all the time.

Awesome idea. Now if only I could find someone to do that.

I would never survive over there considering how much gas I burn through each week. You should just invest a motorcycle.
I go through most of a tank in a week. The Focus got me 55-60 per gallon, being advertised at 48.9 in the manual. According to internet sources, the new car can get 67...
Sometimes I wonder how they can come up with low numbers like this in the manual. Maybe they get out of the car every now and then and just push it?

The manufacturers tend to be more conservative in their estimations. Parkers is independent and tests the vehicles for the most accurate reading possible. I've not managed to get 60 mpg out of the Focus, but they quoted 60. I'd be happy managing that, as it means less of a fuel bill.

Working for the Job Centre? I hope that never happens.

A job is a job. You'd be managing that place within weeks :P

3. In addition to Wintersun, I'll also be seeing Iron Maiden in London. Additional points for this day for meeting up with someone during the daytime who I quite like. :)
Wish they'd come a little closer, I can't afford it when I've got a substantial bill for a new car coming up...
This show could have done with a longer notice but failing this for you there shall be the world tour for their upcoming album.

Yeah, I'm looking forward to that already.

Damn, that's some heavy news. Sorry to hear the loss about your grandfather. 91 is a really impressive age, though so he at least lived a long life.
Yeah, he was my special grandparent - the one whom I really had a rapport with. Not saying that I didn't love any of my other grandparents as much, but I always felt that whatever I did made him proud. I believe that I managed that with what I wrote and read for him at the service.
I understand what you're saying there. One side of my grandparents both left in the 90s so I didn't get enough time to know them and to be with them whereas the other side of my grandparents have been around for all 23 years of my life so far.

I was lucky enough to have 4 grandparents until 12, 3 until 23, 2 until 30 and still 1 today. I've come from good stock, apparently.

Thank you, thank you, I'll be here all week!

Good. I don't intend to leave it so long between catch-ups this time

Well, you've had a lot on your plate lately, so I don't blame you.

Yeah, I'm looking for a new car, though.

Another car is something I need to start thinking about, as well. Mine's over 10 years old now and the list if issues is starting to grow a bit long. Too bad I don't have the money right now to get one...

Yeah, we've discussed this a lot, but that would still give my most hated user on Newgrounds a higher VP bonus than me. Sure, it would give me a chance to get more points and clear the place up single handedly, but fighting against the guys above me would be tedious.

If the final VP bonus was at 100K, then you'd be equal with your most hated user. Continuing on beyond 100K would just be for bragging rights, I guess. ;)

Thank You

Well, MY fuel bill amounts to just 0 anyway. :P Ah, the benefits of a good public transportation system.
However, I plan to cycle to work in the near future. It's 15km, so it should take me about one hour. That's about as long as I need now, using public transportation... only problem is: Where do I change my sweaty clothes after I got to work?

It sounds like Jasper Carrot's insurance claim sketch, where he reads out Australian motor insurance claim forms:

Nah, you have to pay for tickets, which is basically paying for fuel for the transport.

Yeah, I used to do that. Can't do it now, as 35 miles to work is too far to ride a bike in.

Nope, my company pays for the ticket. :P
Also, it's just 60 Euros per month, so a lot cheaper than having to refill the car every two weeks.

Yeah, the behemoth that I drive gets me 16.5 miles per gallon which is about 26.5 km per gallon. I would like a new ride, but buying anything now won't make up in fuel savings verses a car payment and higher insurance.

Well, hopefully longer than that. ;) And could you throw cabbages or something? I always hated tomatoes.

Yeah, but working 50 hour weeks should not prevent me from spending 10 minutes catching up here every day or two.

Maybe not, but I wasn't even speaking of your work week when I said that.

I've just bought a 9 year old one, but it's worth it. Maybe a temporary one, if something better comes along. You never know.

So long as it takes you from point A to point B and it's got a CD player to crank 2112, am I right? ;)
