    I was thinking it sounded like institutionalised low rent wankers who would behave that way. Come forth into the world of making money.

    So I'm down 6 days pay this month (4 off due to eye issue), 5 days pay next month. All due to their error. What a system lads, love it.
    That's horrendous, that threat is such a massive red flag.

    I've just been to a home visit and the tenants have stabbed three peep holes into their daughters wall / door to keep an eye on her. Now, obviously we live in an age camera's and baby monitors, so - damage aside - they're not doing anything wrong, but fuck me it felt creepy.

    They were about 6 foot apart and the door around the corner. Different vantage points, I suppose. Although trying to rationalise this may be a tad pointless.

    The useless woman's been back for 2 weeks and has just been sacked. I know this because she came into the office shrieking 'I've been sacked!' and telling us she's going to sue the company.

    This Friday's "Journal Club" (dont ask) is discussing Vegetarian and plant-based diets associated with lower incidence of COVID-19, which has raised concerns that the nice data analyst is a bit of a veggie cult follower.

    The study published in BMJ Nutrition, Prevention & Health investigates the impact of vegetarian and plant-based diets on the incidence of COVID-19. The observational study, involving 702 participants, found that individuals following plant-based diets had a 39% lower odds of contracting COVID-19 compared to those with omnivorous diets. However, no significant difference was observed in the severity or duration of the illness between the diet groups. The protective effect is attributed to higher intake of vegetables, legumes, and nuts, and lower intake of dairy and meat among plant-based diet followers.
    I think it's a camera off, reply to emails style meeting, since I've nothing to contribute.

    Going to the Dutch Netherlands next week. Couldn't be dreading it more. I've realised I'm a quality desk salesman, wheeling and dealing, but the bit where you have to be an extrovert and have people skills etc is just so exhausting. Only way to make any money though so I have to drag myself through it.

    In the last six months or so I've started to have pipedreams about starting my own business. Absolutely no idea what I'd do though. Some kind of low-level trading. Probably just the start of a mid-life crisis.

    We've found out where our new office is going to be. Back on a business park in the middle of nowhere for the first time in 15 years. Looking at the place, there's no nice way to kill 30 minutes on a lunch break, either.

    My boss is a doctor, according to her email signature. Once watched her trying to join in a conversation with some discharge nurses from the hospital and she was so out of her depth. Turns out a public health consultant who bands about how they’re a doctor, thinks they’re a medical doctor and knows fuck all when it comes to what anyone in the medical industry actually knows.

    Bloody hell, fair play. Hope it works out.

    I’ve been looking into the SAS options. Finish foundation, do core psych training and then become an SAS in whatever sub-specialty takes my fancy.

    Starting in neonates as an SHO is such a weird combination of mindless grunt work and stuff that's completely out of your comfort zone with basically nothing inbetween.

    One minute you're pointlessly documenting the same blood results in about 8 different places, the next you're going to a delivery on your own and being handed a baby that basically looks dead and everyone looking to you to fix it.

    Dutch trip this week. I woke up at 4am to go to the airport to find that a certain orange-branded airline had cancelled my flight at 2am. The only alternative flight from London to Amsterdam today was via Split, in Croatia. Having waved away my taxi driver I then rebooked from Bristol. So I now have to go and get a train to London, a tube to Paddington, a train to Bristol, then a bus to the airport, then a plane to Amsterdam, and then hire a car drive 2 hours to Groningen or else the whole trip is fucked.

    The things I do for my company.

    If Easyjet have cancelled the flight I'm pretty sure they have a responsibility to find you an alternative fight and it shouldn't cost you a penny.
