I like to have a credit card as a financial backup on my travels, in case something unexpected happens. In addition, I also get travel insurance through it with no extra costs, covering medical expenses and repatriation, accidents, third party liability and legal costs, baggage and travel delay. On top of that, my APR is only 16%. 

 

I only ever use it when I truly need to though.

I don't have a credit card and not planning to. I have my debit card and savings. I've only got Internet and phone to pay out. My credit rating is good as I'm looking at saving for a mortgage.

Time to bring it down a notch, and because I am not good at expressing emotions with people,I need somewhere to just get this off my chest. Just had a skype call with the family back home, overnight my Grandad in England's cancer has spread, and my other nana in England had paramedics at her house, still not sure what's happened. Bleh.

I must say... What a jealous ex. 

 

Interesting if not slightly amusing article there..

 

I don't know if it's just me or maybe because I am getting older but I don't see this particular situation as 30 counts of statutory rape, More like 30 counts of this lad thinking " I can't believe my luck!! " It's a difficult call to make on such things and let's be honest this is not the first and will not be the last occasion that something like this happens.. What is the main factor for me was that it was consensual and not forced but let's be honest who would need forcing in that kind of situation?

 

I think the problem with it obviously is that she was in a position of trust and therefore should have known better than to get involved and having stepped over the line of trust she must now be held account for it. I think that a lengthy prison term would not be reasonable for it though but I certainly would punish her by removing any future opportunity for her to teach or have a role that allows her to come into daily contact with easily led young lads and that should be punishment enough because obviously she can't be trusted in any of them roles anymore.. Funny thing is that it's the male mentality to be giving things like this the thumbs up but if it was the History Teacher sleeping with a girl the same age then everyone goes a bit ott and yet the same rules apply..

 

For me being in a position of trust means not reacting to 'opportunity' when it presents itself and being a teacher would no doubt offer plenty of opportunity with bulgy eyed horny testosterone filled boys and this is where I think she should be unable to have that chance again under the same circumstances. The only other obvious answer is to go back to the days where the History teacher was a crumbling old relic and the Biology teacher was a fire breathing dragon like they were in my day...

Get some more of these back in the classroom and you are almost guaranteed that any horny thoughts go right out the window...

Thanks, I am sure they've both got some time ahead of them, well i know my grandfather has. See what news comes in the next week or so, but I can't really visit until July. However, if things got worse, could probably make it earlier.

Will make time mate. Especially as I haven't seen my grandparents in the UK as much as I would have liked and not since 2012. Heading to Australia for Xmas to visit my other grandparents. Yeah, from what I hear my grandad will undergo chemo in two weeks. My nana we have not heard anymore. Anyway, sorry to put this on a forum, right I am off to teach 4 middle aged Japanese people some English. What a crazy world we live in.

Thing is though, this doesn't seem a big deal and is a joke to the majority of us but if it was the other way around and it was a male teacher and a 16 year old female student, you couldn't imagine the outcry from the general public, even though it would be "consensual" and that female student would be "wanting it" just as much as the male student in this case did(let's be honest), so it's a difficult one.

Totally agree, I mentioned it further down in my post that if it happened to be the other way around even though the situation is the same everyone would be screaming from the rooftops that the bloke would have been a complete scumbag.. Let's remember that in this modern age sex education is a lot better than it used to be and things like the Pill and Condoms are freely given out as well as those morning after pills and it almost acts as a safety net to be more promiscuous than ever before.. And let's not forget the access to Porn that they have through modern technology must be having an influence on them and what they get up to.. In my day if you wanted access to something pornographic you had to pick it up in the shop from the top shelf, unless you got lucky and found your dads old stash... These days they just log on and can see almost anything they want in a few clicks..

4 and a half hours into a 12 and a half our shift. Working at a Jobcentre about 25 miles from home. Get here at 7, open up and disable the alarm and then sit in an office watching cameras all day occasionally going out onto the front if there are any confrontational customers. Half 7 set the alarm, lock up and fuck off. So fucking boring honestly.

Anyone else in here into content writing?

 

My cousin, who is doing his engineering got a drop due to some ATKTs. He has cleared his failed subjects but now has nothing to do for the next 6 months (before he can start his new year in college). So he got himself a job, where he has to submit 10 (300+ words) articles on health and science for an American site. They give him topics from Google news and he has to research and write a new piece. But he just Googles similar pieces, copy-pastes parts from different articles and presents it as his own.

 

I told him not to do that, but he showed me that half of the articles online are just like. Only reputed papers like WashingtonPost, NYT, Huffington etc have qualified writes, but there are many sites which have such copied pieces.

 

The prick is getting 150 $/week for his work. That means 600$ for a month and when you convert that to Indian currency it equates to 36,000 rupees which is fucking more than what a newly graduated Engineer would get. What a fucking scam.

 

Is it same everywhere too?

Not if you manage it properly. If you have the right certification and transaction movement, you can get a credit of 10k or up approved. Manage it properly and you'll be able to ask for more and have greater leverage.

Haven't found Cark yet to angle grind or attempt to roundhouse him in the face. Will keep an eye out though. Also, for anyone interested, Amazon's Black Friday begins on Monday, though there looks to be a deal for PS4's Watch Dogs at 7.
