Males who work in offices.

Don't you feel a bit ashamed that it's not ACTUALLY real work?

re: Males who work in offices.

Nice bit of attention-seeking.

I would guess that the proportion of posters on this board who are males who work in offices is about the same as the proportion who are Boro fans.

Well, as I've already said, I worked and earnt my own money for the first 2 years of my apprenticeship and got paid for the last 2. I didn't care much because I earnt enough to go out twice a week.

The_Lizards_Jumpers Posted on 4/8 14:46

Plus I don't suppose it costs much to go out when you go home so early, following a battering in a nightclub ?

Also, thinking about it now, it definitely doesn't matter that I didn't get paid. It was well worth it.

Ask yourself this.

Did Bill Gates become the richest man in the world do it getting his hands dirty or sitting on his arse in an office?

Bet he crries himself to sleep at night that he didn't do a ditch digging apprenticeship.

yeah_man Posted on 4/8 14:48
re: Males who work in offices.

I didn't get in till about 4 in the morning that night. Plus, that was when I was getting paid anyway.

I'm not sure why people are so obsessed about me getting a few fights that night. Very strange.

yeah_man Posted on 4/8 14:52
re: Males who work in offices.

mickbrown - I couldn't care less about Bill Gates. No pen pushing breast is ever going to earn as much as him if they worked as a poncey office boy for 2000 lifetimes.

re: Males who work in offices.

I've done both. Couple of stints on building sites and enjoyed them for a while. Nice in the summer - fresh air, up early, finish early. Though when I was teetering on a roof in freezing January, clinging onto a chimney during a force 9 gale, trying to hold a newly built wall up with one foot, I would have given anything to be sat behind a desk. I can tolerate both types of work to be honest but neither feel particularly rewarding. It's all about perspective.

"Now Now OBF, careful, your winding up the man who is hard enough to set fire to a girls wand in a night club.....

re: Males who work in offices.

When I was younger and had to do everything I was told, I hated having to sit in an office all day, I do think sitting still all day represses our manly natural instincts. Very similar to how demanding young boys sit still all day at school and show no aggression or energy is combating our natural instincts.

sasboro Posted on 4/8 18:00
re: Males who work in offices.

Get a grip man, the people in the offices not doing "real work" probably earn more than you, get paid to use the companys toilet and use the internet, and dont have kids pointing and laughing "grand canyon" everytime they bend over.

I get paid while I'm on the toilet aswell. Do you really think they'd dock somebody 10 minutes pay? You fool.

As for wages, I would say it's unlikely that some office boy would get paid more than me. Talking about wages like that is just childish.

Surely wages are the main factor of work yeah_man? And I fail to see how wages are childish when you posted "I'll burn your face off, you punk"

yeah_man Posted on 13/8 18:21
re: Males who work in offices.

Wages are a big factor, yes. However, I don't like to boast about how much I get paid and I don't like others doing so. It's quite ''la de da''.

Some people aren't money motivated. I'd happily do a job I love and earn less, than do something I hate and get paid a lot.

Not too sure what you mean by the second paragraph. Very strange.

In the hope that people will think: "Wow, what a big shot".

20 year olds who are still at university generally work in pubs and supermarkets. And that's normally where they continue to work for a long time after they've got their "degree".

Pauleta_22 Posted on 13/8 20:58
re: Males who work in offices.

Do you have a degree?
Would you like me to give you my c.v?

I decided not to go after bar work due to the fact I was able to get a job which paid more money and had more social hours, I like the fact your kind of trying to have a dig at me about this too ..although is it not a little depressing?

But anyhow lets not go into that, out of interest what is it you do for a living?

yeah_man Posted on 13/8 20:59
re: Males who work in offices.

Real work involves getting your hands dirty, being active, moving around and actually being tired at the end of the day. Not sitting behind an Ikea desk worrying about stationary all day.

I didn't study management, no. Actually, if I'm honest, I didn't really study anything. I have a brain, I know what up a "large organisation". Not that that makes any difference.

Pauleta_22 Posted on 13/8 21:01
re: Males who work in offices.

Well my normal day starts at 7am and end around 6. I see what you mean about the being active tho, that is the downside of working in an office type role is that fact your on your arse all day. Which sadly results in women getting the "officer works arse" by the time they hit 30. However I go to the gym before work (thus the getting up at 7) and I tend to find this makes you feel much better at the start and end of the day.

re: Males who work in offices.

yeah_man, right now a man in an office is designing a robot that will do your job better, faster and cheaper than you.

It'll soon be time to pull your head out of your ar.se and look for a new job.

Pauleta_22 Posted on 13/8 21:02
re: Males who work in offices.

But I dont agree with the general concept of "real" work, any role in which you are making decisions which can affect the company and as a result the market place has to be considered "real"

yeah_man Posted on 13/8 21:02
re: Males who work in offices.

Why would I want a copy of your CV?

Is what depressing?

To be fair, I couldn't care less what you do or don't do for a living. All I'm saying is that you're still at university, and because of that, nobody is going to offer you anywhere near £26,000 a year. Simple.

If you bothered to read the thread, you'd know what I do for a living.

Pauleta_22 Posted on 13/8 21:05
re: Males who work in offices.

They offered me the chance to start work full time and thus stopping going to university, but I've told them I want to finish at uni. Im hopefull they may now sponsor me through uni, I mean its not the job I would want to do my whole life (I think your lucky to find work that does that for you) but it could be a very good start.


Your an electrician? So do you complain when big companys build big shiney new offices and need it wiring? Or do you refuse to work there...

re: Males who work in offices.

Incidentally, no, I don't have a degree. I dropped out because my car got nicked along with all of my notes. That doesn't make any difference though. I didn't really need it anyway.

Yoda - The day they design a robot that can carry out the work I do (i.e. repair machinery, install new machines etc) is very, very far off.

yeah_man Posted on 13/8 21:08
re: Males who work in offices.

Ah ha. So they wouldn't be paying you £26,000 a year to do a job, whilst you stayed on at university. So, that means that I am actually right.

yeah_man Posted on 13/8 21:09
re: Males who work in offices.

That's a different form of electrical work. I'm industrial, not commercial. So that makes no difference to me.

I'd do the job and still think the same though, if that situation did arise.

Pauleta_22 Posted on 13/8 21:11
re: Males who work in offices.

I never said they did..
FYI they have also said i have a job for the whole of next summer if i want it - this is where the sponsorship idea has come from!

Pauleta_22 Posted on 13/8 21:12
re: Males who work in offices.

Ok I get the idea of the sort of work you do now

yeah_man Posted on 13/8 21:15
re: Males who work in offices.

Fair enough. £26,000 a year is a lot of money for a 20 year old (I'm one myself) to be earning. Well, for anyone of any age, actually. If you're earning, or will be, more than that, then fair enough.

It just seems hard to imagine somebody of my age would be earning more. I can hardly believe I'm earning this much myself, to be honest.

Still, office workers are poncey. That'll never change.

Pauleta_22 Posted on 13/8 21:17
re: Males who work in offices.

It really depends on the company where you work, my last place (where I was on my gap year) was wicked, most of the staff where early 20's - lots of them just finished uni. we had a great laugh all day, they had table football in the staff room - passed many an hour on that and they flew us all to amsterdam for 3 days which was pretty cool.

Where I work now its a bit more "work and work hard" and the people are not as young which obviously is not as good

yeah_man Posted on 13/8 21:19

You do actually go to work to work, though. Not arse about.

yeah i work hard in my current job, but the last place i knew i was on easy street and considering i was always going to uni i didnt really care about leaving a long term impression. This place now is a much better opportunity for me as the industry its in as well is interesting and fast moving

DrBuck Posted on 13/8 21:37
re: Males who work in offices.

Yeah Man, why are you so jealous of us office workers? Is it maybe because we do this job because, on the whole we have to have a command of the English language, whereas you don't.

How do i know this? Your thread should have read, 'Male office workers.'

ewe_boy Posted on 13/8 21:43
re: Males who work in offices.

I think what you are trying to say Yeah Man, is that office workers are generally effeminate,and there maybe a lot of truth in that,however I believe that it's everyone to their own,live and let live.
You sound a lot like my friend who left school with a coachload of O and A levels but went into the building trade because of the money and also because he felt office work was a little too poncey ,he is now earning a fantastic wage and good luck to him....however he has a dig at office worker mates who are on a fifth of his wage ....that i don't understand ,they'd love his money.
I,ve worked in offices before now yeah on about 16 a year ,and while the money isn;t fantastic I don't have the flair to do a skills job,I tried a Diy plumbing job and nigh on flooded the street ...So each man I suppose has to do the best his abilities allow.

ewe_boy Posted on 13/8 21:45
re: Males who work in offices.

Dr Buck ,not all office workers have a great command of English these days, I and many other posts on here are proof of that i think !

Boro_Owl Posted on 13/8 21:46
re: Males who work in offices.

26,000 aint much yeah_man, considering thats about as good as its going to get.

I got an offer for £26,325 a year, 2 weeks paid holiday, and I'm 16. This was for working in a shop.

DrBuck Posted on 13/8 21:49
re: Males who work in offices.

What shop was that then Boro Owl, is it still going? I only get 15k I could do with a bit more!!!

yeah_man Posted on 13/8 21:49
re: Males who work in offices.

Who cares? I'm not the bastad Queen.

People normally work in offices because: A) They're lazy and B) They're thick.

You don't have to be clever to work in an office. That's a fact. Most people I know who work in offices, only ended up their because it was a last resort. It's the thick and lazy persons equivalent to joining the army.

I'm not jealous of office workers. Far from it.

"26,000 aint much yeah_man, considering thats about as good as its going to get.

re: Males who work in offices.

Yeah Man, if you seriously are an electrician ,you should get yourself down to London ,they're literally throwing money at folks in your game...26 isn't much for your trade ,they wouldn't get out of bed for that in South Essex where I visit.

Boro_Owl Posted on 13/8 21:55
re: Males who work in offices.

DrBuck, this job is in sheffield, not sure if its still going, havnt talked to the manager about it for a few days, but i think he's training somebody this week.

If I wasnt doing A-Levels in a few months I'd have snapped his hands off.

borodavey Posted on 13/8 21:56
re: Males who work in offices.

as someone who has done physical work and office work, i would have to say using your head is harder than using your hands. the reason. coming home mentally drained is far worse than coming home physically drained. but then some dont have a choice. I wouldnt hire someone as dumb as yeah-man to do my rewiring

yeah_man Posted on 13/8 21:56
re: Males who work in offices.

re: Males who work in offices.

ewe-boy you can't be serious, do I detect a little mickie taking? 26k is a fortune, I'd sell my mother to earn that much!

ewe_boy Posted on 13/8 22:01
re: Males who work in offices.

Yeah man ,the average IQ of an office worker i would say is a little higher than that of a skilled man, {if i was putting money on it}....Ive known one or two thick brickies take it from me ...but you require an average intelligence (100) atleast to perform in an office,unless it's a real dead end admin job.

yeah_man Posted on 13/8 22:04
re: Males who work in offices.

"I wouldnt hire someone as dumb as yeah-man to do my rewiring"

Shame. Just out of interest, how do you know I'm "dumb"?

Also, Boro_Owl. There's no way a 16 year old BOY would be offered a job on such a salary. They probably wouldn't even a offer a boy of your age half of that. You're talking dogshit.

DrBuck - You'd sell your mother for £26,000 a year, yet you think I'm jealous of office workers? Strange.

DrBuck Posted on 13/8 22:06
re: Males who work in offices.

You're obviously unsatisfied with your job mate!

ewe_boy Posted on 13/8 22:08
re: Males who work in offices.

Dr Buck Im being deadly serious ! ...There are some seriously wealthy people around London and the South East who are screaming out for skilled tradesmen (who all seem to be booked up }, so much so that i've heard stories of COMMUTING bricklayers !..yes don't laugh (these ones go by van not train by the way and travel down each day over 100 miles to snap up some up the lucrative work on offer .... how long all this will last for I don't know ...bubble will burst at some point .

yeah_man Posted on 13/8 22:13
re: Males who work in offices.

I must be blessed then. My job involves both office work (like now) and getting out and about getting my hands dirty

To say office workers are thick is very naive to say the least. As for your 26k a year........I wouldn't get out of bed for that And neither would the 25 blokes and 3 lasses that I work with

ewe_boy Posted on 13/8 22:54
re: Males who work in offices.

Surely that depends on the degree .....I dare say that's true for a lot of graduates these days,who end up in lowly paid work ,but the red brick degrees would take you a lot further up the road.

jeff_potato Posted on 13/8 22:56
re: Males who work in offices.

Not even red-brick, for degrees like mine. To be honest, I think it's just that employers don't know enough about my course to recognise that they shouldn't offer me a big wedge of cash for a job I'll need completely training up for!

yeah_man Posted on 13/8 23:08
re: Males who work in offices.

"So why be an electrican then?"

It's a good trade and it's good money. You can't seriously slag it off, surely.

DrBuck - I was unemployed for 3 months. It was crap. Numerous jobs fell through. But with a bit of self belief, persistance and a good woman, I got through it. I'm naturally confident. As far as I'm concerned, I'm the best person to ever walk the Earth.

Did you bother to look for work whilst you were unemployed, or did you just wallow?

Pauluka Posted on 13/8 23:12
re: Males who work in offices.

Oh I can slag it off and I have. You seem content with slagging off any type of office job when in reality alot of them are far nore skilled than yours. And earn more money!
