  1. I got Shit Canned from my Job

    So yesterday I got fired from my job.

    I had worked there just over one year, as a Customer Service Advisor for a large UK bookmaker in their call center Head Office.

    The reason they let me go was because I had been late six times, and also had six single day absences (sickness) since I started. To be fair two of those absences were self inflicted from killer hangovers, and I cited food poisoning as a reason.

    My argument was that they donít even do sick ...
  2. Freedom is Slavery

    Taken from George Orwell's dystopian novel 1984: "War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength". These paradoxical sayings were coined by Orwell as examples which gave meaning to his ideological term 'doublethink'.

  5. Ireland Trip Report

    I'm in Ireland visiting family for the week, and as I won a ticket for a Ä200 tournament at the Dublin poker festival I figured the trip would be a good way to kill two birds with one stone. Well, I've had great 'craic' with the family so that's half the mission complete but I busted the poker comp on Saturday and went back to the festival last night to play some side games and cash only to continue running like dog shit and lose a few hundred euro.
    I'm having a torrid time with live poker ...
