I recently got a job, signed a contract and everything but now the organiser has just dropped all contact with me. I suspect that they just don't want me anymore, which I would be more okay with if I didn't clear up my schedule for the job (and if they had actually decided to tell me instead of leaving me in limbo)

(First off, congrats!)

Sometimes it feels like they're blanking you completely, but honestly, you're probably just feeling that way becuase of how eager you are. I bet if they hadn't made contact for only 24 hours you'd feel like they had just forgotten about you. :D I'm sure you'll hear from them soon.

Whoops, this was meant to go in the disappointment thread :p

they have about 2 more days to contact me before I'm due to start (note they never finished training me), which almost certainly means they dropped me. Also, I was totally not eager. They were a terrible, terrible company, so I can just be glad I didn't have to work for them in the end! (sour grapes, I know)

A positive for yesterday - on my 12 mile bike journey home, about halfway, I saw a dog loose walking down the kerb of a main road. I think it might have been a corgi.

I followed it up the road a little, and it turned down a cul-de-sac. I knocked on a few doors asking if anyone could recognise it, but no one did. I thought maybe someone could take it in and phone the RSPCA or just let me pass the burden onto them, but of the two people I saw, one was allergic to dogs, and the other one had a house of cats and barking dogs, so that probably wouldn't be the right environment.

I asked the second person to look after my bike (we chained it up to a post on her porch), I picked up the dog, and started going out of the estate and back up the road. Apparently, there was a vets office down the road, but I decided to take the dog the other way, in the direction I originally saw it running from.

I passed a few people, asking them if they recognised the dog. I must have looked a right fool clutching a dog, shouting across the busy road (in some cases), but I was desperate. Like I said, I had biked about 6 miles (it was a warmish day), and now I has carrying a fairy heavy small dog up a road. No on recognised it, naturally.

The dog was very docile throughout. She kept licking my face and she didn't bark once. I did notice her paws were shaking a bit - whether I was imagining it or not, she might have been a bit nervous. I wanted to keep hold of it at all times, and not risk it running away, but I did have to place her on the ground at times so I could get a firmer grip.

So I knocked on a few doors. Of about 5 houses I checked, 3 were empty (there were cars outside, but no-one answered - the lights were off as well - I was beginning to worry that I looked like some sort of burglar), and two didn't recognise the dog. On the second of those, an old lady opened the door. I talked about what I planned to do - that is, phone the RSPCA (the vets office was a bit too far to carry it now), but she said there lived next door some people who had dogs. She offered to take the dog in so we could phone the RSPCA if it was necessary, but I said I'd take the dog further up the road, and even then, if it didn't prove fruitful, I'd borrow their phone. Along with the irrational fear in the back of my head that I didn't want to look like some sort of burglar, I didn't want to enter this old lady's home. She seemed too trusting for her own good.

I had a look next door, and there was no-one in.

I kept going though, and rang the bell of the house beyond another cul-de-sac (it may have been 2 doors away). A young woman came to the door and she gasped at the dog. In my mind, I was a bit more sceptical than I should have been, but she called one of her house mates, a young man and I returned the dog. Apparently it had escaped from the garden. We talked about where and how I came to find it, I asked if I could borrow a phone so I could phone home to say I was going to be late.

I made the call, and meanwhile, the other young man came back to me with a £5 note as thanks. I accepted it graciously (though I didn't pick up the dog and walk about for 30 minutes because I thought I'd get some money out of it), and went back down the road, and to my bike on the estate.

My bike was still there, of course, I rang the doorbell of the house, just to notify them that I'll be unlocking my bike and taking it away, told them I'd found the owners, and set off back home.

It made up for the rest of the day - I'd got a puncture on my bike and had to walk it for approximately 2 miles (by google maps). It was too early to get it repaired, so I just locked it up until I could take it in somewhere. When I did, the puncture repair cost £12, but I think they may have done something to my gears - they keep skipping. Also a bit of my sole kept flapping about on the bottom of my shoe.

A few things:
I said in the Disappointment thread that my dad lost his job. He didn't! He works at an agency as a temporary member so when it's not busy; he's not called in. Still a shame but the Agency's been getting more of a workload again so it's business as usual for him. ^^
I've seen my results and have officially passed my second year of University and although I've yet to receive the e-mail, I booked a ticket for Hyper Japan. A glimpse of Smash Bros. is on the horizon at last!

Well, it was yesterday... but I'll put it here anyway.
I HAVE, FOR THE FIRST TIME, PLAYED THE JOY THAT IS KNOWN AS THE PROFESSOR LAYTON SERIES.
Wow, I really wish I would have tried this series before now!
Figured I'd start with "The Last Specter", being it's the first prequel game... and it's great!
