You're going to work in Starbucks, Sharon? Ooh, man, brave woman. Morning shift would be stress in a vente mug, it really would. With cinamon on top.

Well done again Lesley! I want to know what mine are now sad.gif But not if they're all fails. Not got a good feeling about English at all.

I passed all my exams! Woo Hoo! I actually only sat one exam in the summer there, but it was quite hard, but it's there on Pegasus "PASS" smile.gif

I was watching the Crystal Maze earlier on Challenge TV out of interest to anyone else who watched it years ago! laugh.gif They only won 5 crystals and were pretty poor!

You have to watch this clip! laugh.gif How can someone be so stupid!? I do love how she throws the stick and it continually falls back and hits her, then with about 10 seconds left she realises it might just help to use the beam! I'm mean, I just can't stop laughing when she gets it then immediately takes a fantastic fall into the water! laugh.gif

Which reminds me: I saw Gladiators on Freeview a few weeks ago!

Mine are shockingly low as well and didn't study much either, so I guess that what happens. I passed, however.

It was quite stressful today actually sad.gif

I don't have a cluuue about all these million different types of coffees and all these different sprinklings and iced and cream things!

And these bloody Starbucks machines are scaaary compared with what I had last year. They steam and fart and hiss and even wet themselves from time to time.

Damn summer jobs! I can't handle this, I really can't, this is too much for me! tongue.gif Uniform is HIDEOUS.

I've always said that I love and adore Starbucks, but you'd have to pay me at least five times my hourly rate in Accessorize for me to even consider working in there. People and their granda mocha-choca-skinny lattes with some obscure syrup and an extra shot on top are just fussy. Have a latte, maybe a cinammon swirl and bugger off, that's what I say.

Lol. Yeah that clip was hilarious. It always struck me on that program how dim some of the people appeared to be on it. I suppose maybe it might not all be that obvious in the heat of the moment? ph34r.gif

On the subject of getting paid "at least 5 times my hourly rate" I got paid last Friday, and it was a bumper pay, with loads of overtime in it and a bank holiday! Get in! smile.gif

Exactly. Last year there was just large and small tea and coffees. Now I have to know about 500 prices and recipes of coffee alone, its so stupid.

The good points are that I can help myself to anythign at anytime. Hah. Not going to do much for my figure (i jsut wrote finger) though is it. sad.gif

I'll stop moaning now. dry.gif

Look what I got in the post from uni today:

Dear Miss Cochrane

I write on behalf of the Board of Examiners and the Faculty to compliment you on your very fine academic performance at the recent diet of examinations.

I wish you the very best for next session.

Yours sincerely
Neil Hutton
Dean
Faculty of Law, Arts and Social Sciences


Now, that's lovely and I am delighted that I'm clever enough to get a letter from the dean of the faculty but WHAT ARE MY STUPID RESULTS?!!! I still don't know what I actually GOT for everything. I'm presuming I've passed by the way old Neill Hutton's going on.

I'm getting a bit naffed off about not knowing now.

I'm working with someone who used to work at Starbucks just now, I think it gets better Sharon. (Think she just moved jobs since ours is closer) At least she's never moaned about it and she made them a cake when she left.
That said I don't like doing coffees. I can never get the milk to foam properly, it's so annoying.

And I have 3 days off! In a row! YES!!! I'm still liking work but I'm so tired. Need a day off.
