Today was a pretty shit day. I work for a corporate bank (not a rope long enough) who have decided that awarding stars for doing a good job was a good idea.

So you can nominate anyone for a star award for basically anything. So and So stayed back 10 min after work to wait for the manager whilst he talked on the phone, will get you a stars nomination. What the fuck??? You don't get praise for cleaning up everyones shit. Or doing everyone elses job but hey if you serve 10 customers in an 8 hour shift you may get a star in the mail.

So you may ask why I'm so pissed off about this? Doesn't everyone deserve a star? No they fucking dont! A fucking shitty star shaped cut out of a piece of coloured fucking paper! All that it does is make the people that dont get one feel like absolute incompetent fools and the one who is nominated turns into a fucking king or queen of the castle!

What ever happened to a thank you? Are managers that fucking lazy that they cant be assed to give you a pat on the back for a job well done. And why is it that the people who least deserve it get nominated? What the fuck is up with this bloody world?

I do a good job. Actually I basically do everyones job. I never get a thank you and definitely not a fucking star! I feel like Earl the Office Manager :-/ (those of you who watch friends may remember Earl)

The worst part is, I get really upset at myself for caring, then I work myself in to a depressive state and feel sorry for my ass. I even had a bit of a cry. (other factors were also involved in the tears) All because nobody nominated me for a star award :/ But then again, I could carry an elderly lady 5 miles in a blizzard so she could withdrawal £5 from her account, earn millions of pounds for the company, sell 1000 mortgages in a week and someone else would get nominated for turning up for work on time 4 out of 5 days.

But hey, thats life isnt it or should I say thats work.

My day did get much better. Took the Roubaix out for a spin. Had a lovely cuppa tea and a piece of cake with my best friend and came home to curl up in my favorite dressing gown. Now thats life :)

The first of many

What do you write about in your first blog? Something to get people interested? Or maybe just what you are thinking at this moment in time. Maybe a little about me? Well that could either get me loads of interest or none at all.

Im pretty fabulous! Actually more like an olive, some love me others definatly do not. I cant spell worth shit and Im to lazy to use spell check. I love cycling, everything about cycling really, except for people who pretent their a cyclist and they get on a bike twice a year. And I love twitter, mainly to discuss how much I love cycling.

Im a bit unfit at the moment. Its frustrating to say the least. Everyone around me seems to be months ahead in their fitness and I am being left behind. I take around 20 painkillers a day and am undergoing treatment for an injury.

Rants and things that are pants.

Where do I start? Maybe with just one rant because if I get started I will have nothing left to write about.

It really bothers me when people whithold information to make themselves look better! Or those who embelish the truth. Just be your fucking self! If your scared its cuz people wont like you then just remember this. People wont like you when they find out you have been lying the whole time. They will fiquer out that you are not who you say you are. Unless of course they are just as stupid as you.

So many people care to much about what others will think. Grow the fuck up! You will become a better person when you stop trying so hard to impress others.

I feel much better for getting that off my chest :)
