TP's favourite (only?) Swiss member Pardus started his new job today. Whilst we obviously all wish him the very best of luck, it seems unlikely that it lasted. How long do you think he lasted before he was either sacked or quit in disgust at a lack of unmetterd interent access?

I reckon he was gone by lunch, so say 3hrs 45mins in the job.

Anybody want to bet he lasted longer/shorter than that?!

Gelli, you are SO bad! I bet Pardus will last as long as he wants too;)

A beer on me if he lasts shorter than three hours.
Well, you can have a beer on me anyway next time!

I have lasted 7 years hear... And that is by far the longest I've stayed at any job, even if I deduct those six months of travel-leave some years ago... Sometimes you have to love the boss! he won't give me a new leave though

hehehe i bet he lasts a lot longer then that ! but that he gets internet access in his apt and is logged on every night until he has to drag himself to work, so that eventually he goes even crazier...... besides i already know that once he gets into something he becomes a workaholic posing as a dosser..

So? Is he still working?

Yep , he's still working !!! He's hyper, they're giving him free coke (coca cola ) so he's hyper and says the workload is easier then before !?! oh and the email is from his new work one so he's still dossing !!! ;)

Oh my god, am I getting some sort of celebrity status here now?
For everybody who is interested, I just had a meeting with my manager today and I am going to be made permanent as from next Monday. I was on temp status for the first two weeks.
It's weird, can't they see what I am like?
But anyway, if they pay me and don't expect too much from me, all the better, it's all going into the Travel fund!
And unlike other people I don't have to work 24/7 just to convince my bosses that I am not a dosser!
I will keep you updated on my progress....
