    Cheer me up.

    Mrs. Moonrakers and I have had a bad week.

    A "bad" week is actually quite an understatement, it would be a tad more accurate to name it a "Train wreck and plane crash with aids and h1n1" kind of week.

    It's been a bit crap.

    Anyway, cheer me the fuck up innit. I ask here instead of TV because this is where the whit is. I want banter, pisstakes, music (I love ska) and just lot's off funny stuff. I am definitely not some septic who cannot accept being the brunt of a joke, just make me laugh even if it is me that you are laughing at.

    I am also quite a bit angry, allow me to illustrate just how angry I am:

    I have already typed this up once on a local (Swindon FC) forum, I'm just gonna copy and paste:

    .................................................. .................................................. .........................

    Well....

    Last week the finance Co. came to reposses (fuck the spellng) the car. WTF, we have been keeping up with payments......

    It turns out that although we have been making payments regularly for the last year and a half or so, the contract has expired and there are still some outstanding payments from way back when we went through a rough patch. No biggie though as it is just a case of re-financing the outstanding amount....

    That marred an otherwise quite good week as my misses was accepted for a job which both looked good for her career wise and was a significant salary increase. She also had a part-time job as marketing manager which paid a reasonble sum. Myself, I have recently started a job as a regional (Asia pacific) sales manager for a start up company. I was on comission only but that was fine as things were looking very good for me in the long term and sometime early next year I should be on a big fat salary, besides my misses was making more money also. At last it looks as we where getting our lucky break, until........

    After quitting her previous job and paying out to change our daughters school (working hours had changed), my misses arrived at her new job on Monday this week as arranged.... There's nobody there. After a whle she manages to contact somebody who says that her contract had not been finalised yet and so my misses is told to wait and she will get a call. This go's on until Wednesday when my misses, becoming quite concerned asks curtly "What the bloody hell is going on". It turns out that after being accepted for the job, head office in Australia decided that things weren't working out in Asia and so decided to close the Bangkok branch. However some fucking dipshit retard bopard feels that it is not important that my misses knows about this.

    Well fucking marvellous. Not only have we just paid out good money to put our our girl in a new school but my misses had already resigned from her last job, not to mention the fact my misses is upset at missing a good opportunity for her. Somebody could have let her know at the very least.

    So now my misses had effectively lost two jobs but we are still "OK". Her second income can still keep us afloat, getting the car back is still no biggie and again, things are looking good where my own career is concerned.

    Until..... Whilst at work I get the text message "Fuck, I just lost two jobs in one day"......

    After trying for about an hour I finally get through to my misses, I suspect it took her that long to compose herself...... She has been made redundant for the second time in one day (effectively 3 jobs in one week now) reducing our monthly income to zero, zilch, nada, nothing, nowt..... you get the point.

    So within 1 week our situation had gone from looking quite comfortable, even a tad sexy to one of having no income asides from a small payment at the end of this month. This gives me only one choice, I have to quit my sales management job for a guaranteed salary, after all my landlord is unlikely to be interested in my "Probably paying him back in January". Between us we have now lost 4 jobs in the space of one week.

    So that's fucking marvellous also, brilliant, we are facking loving it, fan-fucktastic.

    My misses and are are both feeling a tad down as should be expected however we are both quite tough and know how to use our brain, therefore we should be able to do the bare minimum required (making enough money to pay the bills) at least until we can pick things up again.

    So we are at home, consoling ourselves and each other when some [at][at][at][at] really decides to kick us when we are down. The finance company call... due to my misses no longer having an income and needing 6 months history of working for your current employer, even if my wife got another job tomorrow we cannot re-finance the outstanding amount on the car and therefore it is highly likely that we have also lost the car.

    We where just 4 months away from completeing a 3 1/2 repayment contract.

    Tonight, I shall be drinking mostly: Whatever I can get my hands on.

    Moonie's a Yank, ain't he? What he's got to do with fekin Squeekdun is beyond me.
    Well, Moonie, the gods always answer prayers sideways so think negative. And what do you expect from an Ozzie company?
    So, time to pound the pavement. You have a few weeks til month-end to raise the rent/car money, ensure you have food for the fam. A few bits of silver from a loan shark?
    You and your wife have brains; you'll do well.

    I can totally relate to this it sucks like hell when someone is so inconsiderate as to make you track them down to get an answer and then they avoid you without any consideration what-so-ever as to how it effects your life..It's far more ethical, honorable and upstanding to at least man up, be honest and have the respect, courtesy, ethics and professionalism to inform someone instead of stringing them along and ultimately forcing you to corner or manipulate them for an answer.

    But that is old school character a rare find these days and also not what you'll find in abundance many places but most especially in Thailand and that includes most foreign companies and business people those from the south have proven to me to be the worst offenders..Seems they have much in common with Thai's probably why there are so many who establish themselves here, same sort of ethics..

    I had occasion to know another Aussie cock that treated me that way without the first bit of cause. Made all sorts of promises and the like and then painted it all as a delusion, sorely understated, it's quite the aggravation to be sure..

    ^ Mate I am sure Moonie will be OK as he seems to have the nounce to get himself a fulltime, probably not as well paying but secure salary job and until something better comes along.

    Walk before you can run and we all have had to face these life obstacles and what seperates people is how well they react to difficult situations.

    I have been thinking about this and quite possibly your missus has some claim against this Aussie company!

    Did she sign any employment contracts or has received any official notification of employment acceptance by this company?

    If so this company should be libel for some refund of costs incurred and associated damages.

    I was also thinking he might be able to take some action, but it look's like the contract wasn't signed and finished with.

    After a whle she manages to contact somebody who says that her contract had not been finalised yet and so my misses is told to wait and she will get a call.
    This also makes me wonder why the school and whatever else was changed before the job was secure?

    I think taking them to court will be more trouble than it's worth, not to mention the expense.
