Cunts, the whole fucking lot of them

So, I've been doing a bit of temping this week like a good unemployed girl. And Christ-on-a-bike what a load of miserable fuckers I've been landed with. The attractive young twenty-somethings on the pod I've been stuck on have not only been ignoring me (which is fair enough, I frigging hate looking after temps and training new people) but they've NOT BEEN INCLUDING ME IN THE TEA ROUNDS.

Cunts.

Pure fucking cunts.

I suppose it's just as well that I've experienced such disasterous relationships and various knockbacks over the years that I've developed the thickest hide in Bristol (outside the Zoo's elephant enclosure)

Anyhow, the most galling thing is that one of these fuckers is, well he's no Brad Pitt but obviously has a hot body under the shirt'n'tie, and, as I earwigged today, single.

So, surely, as the not-completely-minging new girl, I deserve a vague frisson of interest from Mr Hot-and-Available? Perhaps a conversation (given that he sits a whole two foot away)? Or at least a fucking response when I say goodnight?

Anyhow, I'll be sitting elsewhere tomorrow so will have the opportunity to be snubbed by a whole new bunch of cunts.

(Did I say cunts?)

Update Thursday.

Oh, the people on the other side of the office are sooo much nicer, some of them have even chatted to me! I've cheered up so much that it's almost a shame I'm only there till tomorrow. Well, maybe not that much. (Sorry about all the cuntage kids, if you're one of those easily offended types.)

  • Yay! I was first!

    A fiver says he's a poof.

  • P&T, he's does have the hottest body I've had spotted for a long time. But no goatee...

    I hope you're right. How dare he be straight and not fancy me?

  • Perhaps with you being evil (that is being a temp or contractor) they're just testing the water (or peeing in it).

    You never know, tomorrow somebody might actually talk to you. Still, not saying "good night" is a bit poor and I always include the newbie in the tea round (it wastes a bit more time when I'm bored). Tosers.

  • Aww cmon!

    The people I share the floor with on my current contract couldn't bring themselves to say "good morning" or "good night" for a month!

    It goes with the turf, outsider = scum.

    You could always offer to make their tea (and pee on the teaspoon before you stir....)

  • In future, when they do their tea round, produce a full-on cocktail kit from your drawer, and knock up an industrial quantity of Long Island Iced Tea (or similar) and have it all to yourself. Then snort some really rough speed, and offer that round.

    Good blog, btw. Sort of chick lit with a dose of avian flu.

  • Um, were they cunts?

    Not including you in tea is pretty bad.

  • Spin - your current choice of office attire clearly doesn't show enough skin. Shorter skirts and lower tops = more tea.

  • Perhaps you muttered "cunts" and he overheard.

  • Fuck 'em - the aim on arriving at a new office is to bend people your will. It'll happen - it may take years, like it has me (I'm almost there) - but it'll happen. Oh yes. Cunts.

  • Ah, no one in my office ever replies when I say good morning. I think i might try taking their earphones off them and shoving my face in theirs (each one individually), THEN saying good morning and then they can see if they want to reply or not.

  • It could be worse. It could be every bloody person who you come across, whether you know them or not, saying hello to you and wanting to know about your life. That's how they appear to do it in Toronto. Or at least this office, anyway. That's why I surround myself with Brit colleagues, so we can take the piss out of them.

    And if he's not noticed your prime real estate, he ain't worth it.

    (probably shouldn't spend SO much time with the Brit Boys)

  • LOL @ 'cuntage'!

    I think that was the most apt word for the moment because they deserved it.

    Common courtesy and GOOD manners should prevail at all times whether or not anyone is 'temp'.

    I can't say anything further because the only word that suits is 'cunt'.

    Thank gawd you're temporary!

  • Spinny - somehow you make cuntage a wonderful experience...

  • Nobody misses me out of tea round. Ever.
    If someone even approaches the cooler in a tea-making fashion they get a loud "Yes please I'd love one" from my corner and brandish my mug.
    An easy way to train your colleagues.

  • Fucking rude gits. Replace sugar with laxative and smirk quietly to yourself.

    By Blogger The Lady Muck, at 8:40 PM  

  • oi! the other half has a goatee and (if experience is anything to go by) he's not a poof.

    although if he was, i'd watch.

    ahem.

  • Dont worry about it. The cunts are stupid enough to work there on a permanent basis; you'll be off in a jiffy.

    The dude with the hot bod probably suffers from genital warts. His indifference may be feigned.

  • am bit too tipsy to read all comments but am agreeing they is cunts, cos no reason not to be nice to new people..

    By Blogger Kirses, at 11:12 PM  

  • Working as a temp you end up being an invisible person unless you stay there for a couple of months, by which time one or two people might actually exchange greetings with you. Other cuntish behaviour includes getting you to do the huge backlog of filing/photocopying which nobody else wants to do, getting you to cover by yourself when everyone else has an extended lunch down the pub, etc etc. Anyway, bollocks to them, just take the money and run.

  • betty has nailed it.

    don't apologize for the cuntage...if a person was easily offended they would just dash off somewhere else. Cunt is a word you rarely hear where I come from. The Brits toss it about with such flare. Its rather endearing :-)

    Carry on ( I feel I can say that now that SG has abandoned it.)
