How could I forget to write this??!!?!!


I start on the 9th of January – a Sunday. 2 days before that I’m supposed to do an online induction training thing at home – the “Welcome to Royal Mail Induction programme”, no less. They actually go out of their way to recommend you do that on a PC or laptop and not your phone – mainly because too many people think you can sufficiently do everything on a fucking phone these days.

On day one I need to summon up the courage to ask after more hours, so I can then drop my Nights. If I can’t summon the courage up and the first 10 hours with Royal Mail goes whizzing by in a blur of newness and nerves, then I’ll save it for the week after and I won’t punish myself.

Sat and had ‘the talk’ on Monday with my dear manager at my current job. I joked that I’d at least made it 50% less of a headache for her by keeping 2 Nights a week for the time being.

Combined with my 10 hours at Royal Mail this will be 30 hours a week. I’m currently working 40. This will mean a glorious extra day of freedom for me but also of course a drop in pay. But then again, my Royal Mail job pays at least £1 more per hour than my current job. So it will balance out a bit. Maybe not as much as I would like, but it will bolster it past if I was to just drop my hours at my current job down to 30.

Turned out that Royal Mail do what a lot of companies do – a phone interview without actually telling you it’s a phone interview. I know this because their follow up e-mails to me said stuff about being “delighted to confirm that you have been successful at interview”……hmmmmm!! Sneaky. But I don’t mind. I would probably have made a right hatchet job of an interview had I known it was an interview.

So this is it!! New year, new job, new life… Stephen….? Same Stephen, just a little tiny bit richer, and with much more exercise, I hope! Daytime working beckons….and I love the thought of that.

Upwards and onwards. I am excited.

And I also have A/L next Tuesday night and next Friday night!! So I legitimately only work 2 nights next week yet will still get paid for 4. It must be Christmas.

I'm a gamer. I'm a coaster. I am happy in general. We're all born by chance and we're all gonna die. That makes me no better or worse than you. Get over that fact and we'll probably get along. I comment on the Google news feed a lot. Oh, and I swear quite a lot.
