That tears it - I'm getting me some Nutella today.
Except the store was all out.
It seems every time I'm there I have to make an effort not to buy the darn thing, and now I decided to have my once-a-year jar I can't have it? It's not a big annoyance, but somewhat frustrating all the same.
I'm sorry Icyshadow. That's terrible on both counts. It may be time to go elsewhere. I don't tolerate that kind of backstabbing. What happened exactly, if you don't mind sharing?
Things I never thought I'd worry about #23: There's about 14000 crowns ($2000 US) more than I'd thought in my bank account...
Oooh! You found my lost money! :P
How much it of minimum Swedish monthly wage it is? One wage? Two? One-and-half? Here it would be four minimum wages (before subtracting taxes) or two-three average ones.
I'm not entirely sure what a minimum wage would be, since there's not one fixed by law (it's set through negotiations between the labour unions and employer organisations instead) but a quick search tells me that in 2006 the minimum wage (for a full month of 40-hour weeks) was between 12'790 and 15'340 crowns. ...Remind me to show that in comparison to the minimum wages in the rest of the EU the next time someone asks what the union's ever done for them.
That's for people working, though when I went to university 10 years ago you were supposed to survive on a study allowance of 7500 SKr (1/3 study government grant and 2/3 loan), and I don't think they've raised the sum substantially since then.

One friend decided to work as an informant and tell me why this guy was had been ignoring me lately. Why the guy hates me is a mystery to me, but the informant said he was sick of watching the guy hate on me behind my back while I still tried to be friendly with said guy. He decided to chew us both out, since he doesn't pick sides. Then again, I'm not as depressed about all this than I was initially, though I still need to plan what to do about this situation. One idea was to PM the guy hating on me, though that might backfire badly.
Apologies FAWTLY Brethren. My absence has been due to a multitude of reasons, one of which was a severe bout of depression, accompanied by numerous battles with lunacy at work (some involving the forthcoming extreme military budget cuts which will potentially affect my future and that of my family in possibly very craptastic ways), plus a healthy dose of searching for a potential new daycare for the boy.
Needless to say, I felt it necessary to limit my posting if I could not be my usual cheery self.
I am hopefully exiting said long, dark tunnel, just in time to hit the holiday, end of year travel, madness circus.
