    Good news is I haven't throttle the kids. We are having a review meeting this evening, not a good start to it.

    It is only a car.......... it is replaceable, repairable, re-deemable.

    Your boss must have had accidents.



    Bit of an unfortunate title choice :D

    I reversed my car into the bosses car on my first day in my first proper job after uni. She had been waiting for the car for 3 months and had only had it a week, and it took another 2 months to get fixed because it was a special colour.

    At our works Christmas party that year I won 'blondest moment of the year' award and my prize was L Plates. I have never been more mortifed in my life.

    He will get over it, and if he doesn't, he needs to reevaluate his priorities. As Sue says, its just a car.

    Oops. Thats not a great start to a job us it.At least I have been here 6 months and they are aware that I'm normally a careful driver. I'm hoping they will take the "as long as everyone is ok" approach. Just awful sitting here waiting to tell them when they get back

    You can change the title of a thread by left clicking close by the start of the name of the thread on the forum list of threads, so - go into off topic, find your thread in list, left click closely right near the start of the title, it will change into an editable box, change text, et voila!

    Should you wish to, that is.

    Very true. Better a bollard than a child though (little girl on drivers side of my car is the reason I wasnt paying attention to the bollard)

    We once borrowed the Boss's car to go to a tour of the Airport, whilst in there the heavens opened, and we had left the sunroof open!!!

    Every time he passed my desk he mimed as if swimming!

    Ok, told female boss & she was ok. Understandably unhappy but "we are insured". Just have to face male boss now.

    I wouldn't worry about the title - I think most people are aware of events in Norway, but it is just an expression. It reminds me of a recent single by the Jim Jones Revue called "Shoot First (ask questions later)" that came with specific instructions to DJs on BBC 6Music not to play it straight after news bulletins (just in case). It didn't stop them playing The Clash's "Bank Robber" after an item in the news about yes, you guessed it, a bank robbery!

    Male boss might have more of a sense of humour about it? You know, women drivers and all that nonsense (crossing fingers for you!)
