    Well I am certainly living in them courtesy of my employer.

    Do you wish you could blurt everything out but you know you can’t do it on here, and IRL nothing would be able to change it anyway? So you are left wondering, is it me?

    Sorry to hear it. Is it oneof those "I have time on my hands now exams have begun. How can I make life worse for others?" things?

    If this is related to your job, then the best advice, one given frequently here, is 'speak to your union...if it is a serious matter, or you don't have a good school rep, contact the local/regional/national office', and also: keep a note of everything said to you about this matter, send emails to your home (not school) email account etc.

    But I'm sure you know this already... So just 'good luck'.

    Sorry to read this. Great advice above but I'm sure you know already. Also, take care of yourself.

    Been in contact with Union, daily, for what seems like years.

    I think we may be getting to the brown sticky stuff and the rotating device stage. Who gets it in the face is a question still to be decided.

    As I said interesting times.

    One day I will tell all.

    And on that day I am sure that your flabber will be ghasted too...

    Perhaps others are living in interesting times?

    Are you?

    Hugs and sympathy.
    Stay strong and make sure that you have something in life apart from your job.
