Re: Free Rants

I know I should have stopped caring by now but these bloody BAFTAs: no nomination for Benedict, neither for "Sherlock" nor "The Child in Time". Not a single nomination for any show, if I am not mistaken. This is ridiculous.

Oh yes, the owner is responsible for his/her dog's misdeeds. But the police don't drive 25 km for a dead animal (not sure whether they even have a CSI team in the nearest town) - I'm to come to them with photos and proof of ownership etc. Then they'll make a computer entry and if the dog ever gets caught, and is either known or chipped I might get some compensation.

After being to the police it turns out they don't even make a computer entry - because unsupervised dogs hurting other animals are not a criminal offence (which is the only thing they care about), but just a civilian matter. The guy on the telephone had misinformed me and I went to the Gendarmerie for nothing...

Re: Free Rants

That's unfortunate. I can only how frustrating that must feel.
Clueing for looks.

Re: Free Rants

Just remembered something I wanted to let off steam about...
A bit cross with work today.
We all got told which classes we will be with in school next year.
Now I am really happy, because I am getting just what I wanted: I am staying with the Nurture group...we take small groups of kids who need a bit of extra attention.
But it's for one of the teachers, I am really upset.
She's one I consider a pal.
She has an awful history of chronic depression.
This is her first week back working full time, after a lead in process, following several months off sick...I know for a fact she was very affected by my husband's suicide.
But it is a very difficult class she has and they were certainly a large factor in her going off sick.
So guess what?
They have given her the same class next year.
And this isn't because she asked for them, she told me that she had said she would be happy with any class but!
