jesus.. 50% is huge.

I would have guessed at an increase, but never as high as 50% especially when overall youth unemployement fell.

Thats terrible
Happy and sad at the same time.

Happy that Tom Ford is found not to be totally crackers (well, he is a bit, he is speaking in third person), but unhappy about the figures.

in my head, mackay's alarm goes off each morning.. he wakes up each day, walks to his computer looks at the wall behind it, and its got a big calendar on it. he glances along until he finds today.. it says 23.

He logs on to his computer, and opens up a massive excell spreadsheet. He scrolls down to 23, looks across at the column, and it says 9am, 2pm, 6pm = top6 threads.

Its nearly 9am, so he logs on to TSR, and gets ready to fill his qota for the day, and post on each of the top6 threads.. but he has no motivation for it. He is so fed up of having his life controlled by the overwhelming nature of the spreadsheet, that his heart has gone. Instead of replying to people or joining a conversation, he just about musters enough motivation to post a single line.. vaugly topical to what ever is happening at that thread at the time..

He logs off, and the spreadsheet opens itself and flashes with a message: 'Congratulations Mackay, on completing requirement 2,601. Today you survive. Tomorrows number is 62. Dont forget.

He sits back in his chair.. unshaven and unwashed in months.. he has not left the house, just barely managing to keep on top of the spreadsheets requirements. What would happen if he quite? and did not post? who knows.. maybe its a bluff? but it does not matter any more.. he is here, and this is life now, and the football forum is his prison.

He goes to bed and is haunted by the names of other posters on the forum. He wakes up suddenly, with the name 'jam, jam, jam, jam' echoing in his head.. he sits up in his bed, and thinks to himself: if only I could escape this, if only I did not need to keep posting one liners on every thread in the football forum.

From the other room he hears his computer turn itself on, and in a robotic voice he hears the spreadsheet calmy say

But I love you mackay. And they love you. You know that right? Mackay? This is your life now.. and without this your life would be gone.

He does not sleep again that night.

you went so deep

Yeah, training course and guaranteed interview for EE in a few weeks, just a telephone call centre job, but it's a job so I will take that.

Have a friend who did well there from entry level (non grad) and got promoted quickly and is now earning £50k in the north east. So, I guess it is possible.

Aware me of finer details. Man would love to read.


Would love someone to write a troll thread/diss thread about me tbh. Plenty of smack talk and/or subtle ridicule. Would be sho funny! I am such an attention whore...

sounds good

I really hate the stigma that gets attached to call centre jobs.. some people I know, treat them like they are the worst thing imaginable.. but in reality, they are good money, and can be better if you have incentives based on targets.. and have good progression.

A few friends from uni who had this attitude now work in cafe's/shops, and I just think.. why.. you earn less money, have much worse options for progression, and worse job security.. yet just because you have this idea of a call centre, you wont go for it.

Never liked that. a job is a job, and does not have to define your potential to do better things, but can just serve as a way of getting money for now, and potentially more money for later.

+ mackay - that post was definetly not meant as an insult, just my imagination and boredom coming together..

Honestly man, I am sat in work everyday, I get a minute to relax a little, I log on to TSR.. and what do I see - all of my watched threads have new posts.. its great! I think if I came in one day, and did not see a mackay-bump to all the threads, tsr just would not feel right. so keep it up!

Wow. At least I'm not winning again. Think I've been using this less since leaving university.

One liners skew stats
I double post like half my posts too so that record is something else.

I literally don't understand how Mackay can have more than double the posts of anybody else on the forum in such a short time.
Hell, he has about 3x my posts and I feel like I'm spamming this forum day in day out...

To put it in perspective, that's 47 posts per day.
....how?
