    Misunderstandings on MSN

    When you've offended someoneon MSN and it's because whilst you saysomething on it you cannot laugh. I have just offended someone on msn when I said a joke which she mis- understood. So when I try to tell her she missunderstood what I said (and apoligise for offending her), she goes offline.
    Well the Irish did it on St Patrick's day

    Oh, is that a science v arts debate again, because nobody with an arts degree can do something useful in life? (fact: we can, we just dont see the point, gullable scientists do it)


    Made

    FINALLY work pull their finger out of their arses and give us the training we're actually meant to be getting paid for. Only taken 6 months, but we'll finally be moving over to Taxes

    Means 8 weeks back in 'training'

    Also means when the other team (we've been split into 2 groups of 12) take the training after us, our job will be supervising the new lot in who'll be taking over our old tax credits roles (they'll be supervising them when were training). Basically the 6 months sat in a corner seperate have helped us leapfrog staff who have been there longer in the responsibility stakes, because were the most experienced in the building at tax credits

    Well sort of. Was more referring to degrees such as Media Studies and Film Studies that, in my books, aren't really very useful to anyone involved.

    Thought my degree (sport management) was rather pointless as well tbh, had a blast doing it though...and walked straight into a job though i'd say 80-90% of my cohort probably wont be working in the industry as positions seem to only open up when someone dies/does something dumb at a christmas party

    They're pretty useful if you want to work in relevant fields...

    If you want to be a chef, perhaps not so much. On the other hand though, degrees in humanities that focus on research and communication skills probably have more benefit across a range of careers than, say, a degree in physics, which is only going to be of particular use in a small range of fields.
