Do the hyphenated names become hyphenated? Where will it all end? Won't somebody think of the children?

Yeah, nah.

As to why people are so inconsiderate it usually is because they are selfish or just don't care anymore.

He is the most inconsiderate dickhead Ive ever met! I dont want him back here at all, I would have lost my shit if I saw him drop his key off on Friday (was at Soundwave!!) apparently the boss said you might be able to withhold his outstanding annual leave pay, fuck the bastard, I hope a possible employer calls here for a reference, that would be lol-arious.

I actually do love his surname.. except.. they way it's spelt is all wrong

My surname is a great ethnic one, so maybe I can't get him to take mine..

But I was thinking we could make up our own

Then years down the track, the line starts with us

I'm thinking a bottle of scotch might convince him.... Hmm

If you give him a bottle of scotch and decide to make up your own name, don't say I didn't warn you when you end up telling people your new surname is Tallisker.

derelict - i think i can pronouce your surname, and i am a stupid anglo as gone-fishy so succinctly put it next time i see you i will have to see if i got it right or not

but i have a friend who's surname is Pietrzykowski and i can't work out how to pronounce it. i figure it's pet-tree-kof-ski. is that right? any Poles in da haus?

i was considering hyphenating my name when i marry, cos my dad never had a brother or a son, but my surname is 10 letters long and 3 syllables, and so is my fiancee's. so we'd have a 21 character, 6 syllable surname

yeah, nah.

No. He got a small temp ban for doing exactly what he cried wolf for and never returned. Pity, I actually thought he was pretty funny/entertaining.

If he ever comes back I will cut him.

Figuratively.

With words.

Seriously though, he was making jokes about a dead ITMer who a lot of us knew personally. Next level low-life shit.

Seriously he did that? I'm kinda surprised at that, he could be a jerk at times but considering he'd posted about some pretty heavy situations in his own life involving the death of someone close to him I wouldn't have thought he'd sink that low. Disappoint.

I remember people getting up in arms simply cos a thread that the itmer had posted in got bumped, there was a lot of unnecessary panty-wringing going on at the time.

Yeah I remember that too, it did get a bit much, and if N4TE was just trolling in response to that it makes a bit of sense, but it was still a pretty rank comment.

I has a question. One of my co-workers parents died and so a few of us are putting some money together and are going to send a wreath to the funeral. Each persons name is going to be on the card so they know who it's from.

Now while everyone is putting in $20 or more... One guy just left a note for my boss with $2 saying its for the flowers.

My question is... Do we just leave it at that and put his name on the card, or leave his name off, or ask him to put in a little more or give him the $2 back?

We get that not everyone can afford to put as much cash in, but $2 .... We're just nt sure how to approach it or if we should do anything at all

I'd probably be looking at San Antonio and Austin, maybe Dallas.
Make sure you visit Memphis on your way north (though depending on what route you're taking it may be a little out of your way).

I would say it's petty to do anything other than include his name on the card, sure he could have given more cash but I think it would also be pretty disrespectful to the family if this was used as some sort of pretext for an intrawork shifight. His reputation is now diminished which is a penalty of sorts. No harm in bringing up the subject sometime in the future.

I like it when the families ask for no flowers but a donation to a charity for whatever killed them or a cause they were sympathetic to.

I've just stumbled upon an email (in a shared email account) in which one of my colleages is bitching about me to our manager. I've been having some difficulty with this person for a while and we're both going to be in line for the promotion to the manager's position when she leaves in a few months.
Do I let it go or do I try to address it?

She had sent it from her personal account but then moved the email into the shared account (probably by accident).
I want to address is purely so I can clear my name but I'm concerned that it will appear that I'm being petty or trying to make her look bad. The tone she uses in her emails to me is generally very belittling and I've let it slide because I just don't think it's worth bringing up but this is just taking it too far.
