In Dear Barbary this week, Theresa feels unloved and unsupported at work, should she consider a career change?

Dear Barbary,

I don’t seem to have many friends any more. I used to have, but now everyone says they don’t like me.

I’ve lost all confidence at work, too. My job seems so difficult, no one supports anything I do and I’m wondering if I should look for something else. Several of my old colleagues say that after-dinner speaking is lucrative so I might dress up my cv a bit and throw my hat in the ring for that.

Some people say I’m stubborn but I say I’m just standing my ground. I’m strong and stable.

What do you think might have happened to make my friends desert my side?

Yours sincerely,

Theresa. Continue reading “In Dear Barbary this week, Theresa feels unloved and unsupported at work, should she consider a career change?”

Details of the latest series of Tits and Dragons announced

After an almost unbearable wait, details, teasers and some gratuitous nudity from the final season of Game of Thrones, have been released.

Apparently, the latest series of GoT will feature some big men fighting with swords for no other reason than they make a nice clanging noise and easily fill five minutes of screen time.  Continue reading “Details of the latest series of Tits and Dragons announced”

Have you been mis-sold a lottery ticket? Were you promised riches beyond compare? Then one legal firm thinks they can get you your money back

At Napton & Co they believe that ‘where there’s blame, there’s a claim’ and as the PPI work dries up they are looking for new things to get compensation from. Their latest money generating wheeze is to try and sue The National Lottery.  

Ian Napton explains, “When people see all the adverts showing ordinary people winning life changing sums of money, they are led to believe it can happen to them too. Of course we all know it can’t, but it doesn’t stop people handing over the hard earned readies every week.” Continue reading “Have you been mis-sold a lottery ticket?
