Landed a job

Please don’t be silly - I actually enjoyed it and as a result of me asking my IT mates they are going to come round one evening next week for some football and pizza!!

So @im72 thank you sir.

I stroll into work at 09.25. My boss goes, ‘It’s not an issue. We don’t look at hours worked. We focus on outputs.’ Then, at the end of day, aside from me, he was the last IT member to leave, with most leaving between 16.00 and 16.30. He left at 16.40, adding (again), ‘You don’t have to say just for the sake of it. We don’t do hours, we’re agile.’

I think this might be my kind of place.
That sounds like my kind of place too. you seem like you handled it so well despite your frustration with transport and kept cool (like a polar bear of course :polar_bear:).

I am so so impressed and I hope in a few years or whenever I may be able to do something as brave as you and get back into work!!

I applaud you and your attitude. I think you will get on with your boss and colleagues!

Keep on staying cool :polar_bear:


“the 2nd went into limp mode literally a mile from the house”

Love that - I will use that in future I hope you dont mind - the bus went into limp mode :joy: :joy: :joy: :joy:


So your concerns were for nothing in the end, I am so so pleased for you. This sounds like it’s going to be a great place to work, Congratulations :clap: :clap: :clap::partying_face: :smile:


That’s great :slight_smile:

Yeah let’s not continue the techie talk. I’ll just say nostalgia is not what it used to be :slight_smile:

Well, I’ve done a full week and I’m chuffed beyond belief. The team of which I am a member is welcoming and very good humoured, and have made my week a very enjoyable one.

Many thanks to everyone on this forum for the advice and talking sense when I needed to hear/read it, and a special shout out to all the polar bears out there! :smile:


Did the stroke come up in conversation at all?
Or was that just your own sensitivity?

Think I’m going to start a " rights for penguins" movement. :rofl:

Penguins are southern hemisphere / antarctic only. Polar bears are arctic.

I could not possibly say don’t start a rights for penguins movement.

But… Polars says he’s always wondered what a penguin tastes like and that they are pretty stupid (his words not mine!!)

:polar_bear: :wink:

Good @im72 glad to hear you had a good week!! Get back into it so you can help me with IT in a few days

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :polar_bear: :wink:

@im72 so pleased your first week went well & that everyone was really welcoming.
