    Well, today I dropped my iphone 3 (mums old one, about 3-4 years old now) for the first time on concrete. From a distance of about 2 feet, it hit the ground with the screen facing up, but the ****ty cover mum gave me is too thin and it took none of the force, so my screen cracked considerably. I pride myself on looking after my technology, and this is the only exception, but replacing the screen really doesn't seem worth the cost given the phone's age and my limited use of it. Damn!

    It does have a ring to it.

    So, this morning, I drew a picture of a cat (perfectly innocent picture, before anyone asks), and stuck it to the notice board outside my office.

    This afternoon I receive a visit from the health and safety officer of the building, telling me that to picture was unsuitable and it's positioning amounted to "innapropriate use of notice board space".

    Apparently, someone emailed a senior member of staff complaining about it. I now have to attend a disciplinary meeting to discuss my conduct. What a load of bull****. I am absolutely fuming.

    Sounds like gross misconduct to me - can see Hampshire Constabulary being called in myself

    What really sticks in my throat, is that the only reason I stuck it up in the first place, was because a guy I share the office with stuck up a load of quotes from the bible on the board a few days ago. I thought I'd get in on the act and add my own personal touch to it.

    Now I get a lecture about how because of my conduct, they have had no choice but to take down the bible quotes as well. ****ing hell.

    So you're going to get excommunicated as well as sacked and prosecuted - expecting to see in this thread a lot in the coming days

    TBF the internet has pretty much ruined cats for everyone. Hardcore porn is now more socially acceptable than ****ing cats.

    Am tempted to put up another picture of a cat being told off by HR. Probably better not.
