    What has made you Angry Today???????

    Thanks guys. Going in tomorrow to have a look around. It’s further to travel too for work. But all I can think of is how better off financially we would be. Base salary is 105k, plus car, phone ,plus bonuses! The guy I would be replacing, which is a person I worked with years ago, cashed in 140k last year. Fuck! Earning even semi close to six figures is in my wildest dreams.
    But I do really enjoy where I work now, the bosses treat me like family, hell one even bought me a bottle of nice scotch just for the hell off it. All the pros to where I am now, then I think of the money at the other place and how much better of and how much quicker I can pay of the mortgage.
    Big responsibility with the other job too. Having 14 staff to look after plus running the shop. Hard work but the rewards are there.
    Man I am pissed off! I finally thought after all this time I have finally found the place I will work at until I retire. My mind set was sweet .Then this bloody happens.

    Try these questions on yourself and see how it stands....They sound similar but are very different.

    1. What WOULD happen if you DID make that change?

    2. What WOULD happen if you DIDN'T make that change?

    3. What WOULDN'T happen if you DID make that change?

    4. What WOULDN'T happen if you DIDN'T make that change?
    That's funny, I don't remember being forgetful.

    Tread carefully @mudski . Do your homework mate. Especially since you mentioned you are happy and pumped for work where you are now.

    Edit: I should mention, some people fit perfectly into larger shoes and step up no dramas and ace the new job and responsibility. Depends on persons mentality I guess. But others crumble...

    I just shit my self out of fury & anger after re-checking the local NBN progress...
    It was meant to be from June-Sept 2018. And we were awaiting the letter that we can connect eagerly. But after checking it... I just saw this!!!!
    They've been digging and doing stuff in our area and surroundings streets for months so, here I was an idiot thinking progress was made... Fkn hell.
    We're on the very edge of an exchange run and our ADSL2 is sub Dial-up speeds... Fkn hell.

    Mudski mate $$$ will go a long way, but job satisfaction is just as important.

    My 2 cents...

    Far out....I know the wait is a pain in the arse but at lease you'll be one step up from the sub standard FTTN. Used to be on around 2Mbps, now on between 25-45Mbps which yes is a huge improvement, but really, everyone should be FTTP. We're not a feckin 3rd world country and they'll only have to redo the shit in a few years time anyway. My bloody 4G on the phone consistently sits anywhere between 80-100Mbps

    After being retrenched last year, I ended up taking a job with a much smaller company for about 15k less. Quite a substantial cut but needed to get back into the workforce rather quickly, and to be honest, I'm really glad I did. The work is great, I work 35 hours instead of 45+ (standard 38 hours + the unpaid overtime), I don't work any unpaid overtime anymore. They also pay for my fuel and lunch everyday. There's no longer the stress from work that I used to get (which considering I've not long come out of hospital fitted with a cardiac defribulator/pacemaker is a good thing). I'm no longer going home in a bad mood and I get to spend more time with the family. And I no longer have to deal with any bureaucratic bullshit from headoffice.

    Yes extra money would be helpful, as I'm just about always skint, that will change in a year pr so, as mortgage is almost paid off..... But feck it.....

    LIFE IS GOOD
