Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 2-9-2016

Oh, now that’s ridiculous.

I work for a living.

Or, at least, I try to.

And … ?

Will, I’ve seen my hours for next week.

Bloody Ridiculous,’ is putting it mildly.

I’ve got eleven hours.

I’m contracted for sixteen.

And been rota’ed for between 20 and 24.

Understandably?

I’m not a happy bunny: I’m an unhappy bunny intent on having a word with his boss.

And I’m an unhappy bunny thinking about the term ‘Constructive Dismissal.’

Let’s — very angrily — move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Debbi* putting in her answers: scoring five out of five in the process.

Let’s see how everyone does with today’s questions, shall we?

Here they are, along with the How To, License and video …

“My favorite food from my homeland is Guinness. My second choice in Guinness. My third choice - would have to be Guinness.”
Peter O’Toole, 2 August 1932 – 14 December 2013.
And this tune … 


Have a good day: and a better week than I will, next week.






*        I think, Debbi, replacing the TV with a halfway decent radio, might just be the thing!

I'm all for radio too. Sorry, I have a wedding today and I've been hit by a sudden deadline for Monday, so any time I am not out of the house I'll be working on that (and then I have an unexpected meeting on Tuesday and I'll have to work on whatever comes out of that meeting and I have something from before I needed to finish for the following Monday)... I hope things go whichever way is best with work...
