    Power cut last night, alarm did'nt go off.
    So I phone Gez at work to tell her I'll be 15 mins late and who picks up the phone?........only the fucking boss bosses are NEVER there on a sunday, ffs!
    Great, means I'm gonna get an earbashing about having a backup alarm or some such shit.

    Course, you wouldn't have been as late if you hadn't come in here to tell us you were going to get in to trouble for being late.

    Why was the boss there? Cos there'd been a power cut and he needed to check everything was ok.

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    I hate it when that happens. You need to get yourself one that has a battery backup (mine used to but I haven't changed the battery in years), or a wind up alarm clock that doesn't require power to run it.

    You must sleep lightly if those would wake you up, I have a tendency to not even hear the alarm clock

    Ok I got to work 18 mins late

    Conversation went ,......

    Boss "What time do you call this"
    Me: "erm, 18 minutes past 10"
    Boss : Don't be bloody funny"
    Me: "Me? funny? never
    Boss : Why are you late?"
    Me: Power cut switched off my alarm
    Boss: Ohhhh yeAh a likely story
    Me: Did you have a power cut this morning?
    Boss: "Well yes actually, the freezer is broken
    Me: Well duh, so could I not have had a power cut? and is it at all possible my clock is mains powered?
    Boss: Yeah ok, but don't let it happen again
    Me: Ok I'll call Powergen later and tell them to stop making my power go off

    Hardly said a word after that............for 5 hours!!!!
