Hi glaschelle. I feel very sorry for you if you have to work alongside someone like that. I still shudder with anger when I think about my own experience with a certain individual. She too spent most of her 'working day' (inasmuch not much work actually got done) deliberately causing trouble for others. Initially, she'd go all out to be BFF with people, buying gifts and inviting them to her home, etc. When these people woke up and realised how vile she really was, they'd back off and try to avoid her. Then she'd go in for the kill, even going as far as trying to get them sacked for having the audacity to try and break contact with her. The way she spoke to people who irritated her in some small way was shocking, and she was sometimes threatened with physical violence. Anything told to her in confidence was everyone's business in no time at all and she also had no qualms spouting personal details about her own affairs. In between whining about her lack of popularity, she seemed to take a perverse dellight in also revelling in it. Despised by practically all who knew her, no-one was sad to see the back of her when she left. Weird creature. Sound familiar?
Apart from the threats of violence, this is exactly her!!! Particularly the invites to her home and BFF stuff!!! LOL!! Do I know you!!! LOL!

As much as she really does my head in, I feel a bit sorry for her ! My friends think I'm mental, but she seems to have a total lack of insight. She genuinely can't understand why people turn against her!!! Her latest complaint is that me and other people are cliquey! Because we text each other! About Miranda!!!! (tv series - it's not our workmate!!)

Hi again, glaschelle. That was spooky about the 'clique' stuff. She accused us of doing exactly the same thing! If, say, we were discussing a TV programme that she had no interest in, she'd sit poker-faced throughout, then storm off in a strop, accusing us of deliberately excluding her and then go into a huge song and dance routine to follow up. She always made sure that as many people as possible witnessed her 'distress' afterwards, making us look like a bunch of rotten sods. Her manipulation skills over the un-enlightened were powerful. I don't think we know each other; it's just unfortunate that we've both encountered these odd people. I reckon every workforce has one to some degree - some even go on to become Columnist of the Year.

"‘Listen,’ I said, adopting my Beyoncé stance and hand gestures. ‘I assure you I am much busier than you, unless you are a surgeon on the side. You can’t afford me."

"Perhaps these white men are rude to me because I am a middle-aged woman who refuses to flirt with them..."


What a cretin of a woman! Perhaps it's because you are an utter b*tch and if it were up to them, they wouldn't be giving you the service at all to begin with!

And that comment about the funeral was just disgusting.
I'm a single middle aged woman and I couldn't flirt to save my life but I believe that if you are nice to people (including workmen, delivery men), who come to your house, they will be nice to you. Take the man who came to mend my boiler. He was a lot younger than me but we found we had a common interest in naval history so we had a nice chat about books while he was working. What's wrong with offering workmen a cup of tea a) they don't necessarily want one and b) they might not have had anything to drink for hours.

'I am a middle aged woman who refuses to flirt with them'.

Yes, because there's nothing that would make their day better than a flat chested, plug ugly, wrinkled, uppity numpty making overtures to them.

We had a guy come out to fix a radiator just before Christmas and I even baked some biscuits/cake incase he hadn't had the chance to eat anything/had Lizardesque clients. My wee heart broke when he said he'd just had his lunch I'm a bit of a bitter soul at times, but I am always pleasant to folk, especially if they are just doing their job and I like to make their day that little bit better by being a good customer. Even the coalmen wave to me in the street now

Very much so, Pru!

LJ's lovefest for Mary Berry - who, according to all reports and then snippets from people who've met her or know her in a passing sort of way, is proper "good egg" - is really most odd. I nearly can't take it at face value.

There is no

Vitriol
Viper tongued remarks
Viscous asides

Instead

A Peon of Praise. To a woman one would think LJ would loathe and shred as a matter of principle. After all, Mary Berry COOKS, enthuses about COOKING, wants people to get into COOKING. And has made a career of doing just that, with immense success. And is somebody who doesn't bark at people. Has natural charm. And she looks marvellous.

Has Ms Jones had an ephinany?

Bully exposed as coward. MB is "formidable" to say the least and I imagine the lizard is intimidated by the real deal.

Then she goes and spoils it all with the BiB in the last paragraph.

Oh, how I wish that Mary, with her unironed face and sense of mischief was nominated for an Oscar — just so she could force-feed the starlets fondant fancies.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/ar...der-women.html
Almost as if she just couldn't wait to get a last bit of bitchiness in. Always on about being anorexic, she can't see the irony in the 'force feeding fondant fancies' remark - or was it done for alliterative purposes?

This is just a rehash of this article she wrote last year.

I did try and post a comment on this article asking if LJ was getting paid twice for publishing a practically identical article to the one from last October - but surprise surprise it didn't get printed .

A a casual observer I have to ask

Is this Liz Jones a real person or a figment of her keyboard?

I have read some of her articles and I just cannot believe how totally self obsessed one person can be.... and her animals seem to be ill all the time.

Morning Jones fans and something for you. On another forum I'm on, a Talksport non-fans site, there is a long running thread similar to this about Ronnie Irani, former cricketer and now Talksport radio err 'presenter.

Anyway, someone posted this picture from his Twitter today and I recognised that woman immediately from this thread.

As not allowed to post pictures here, here's his twitter: https://twitter.com/RonnieIrani1

And here's the photo:
https://twitter.com/RonnieIrani1/sta...635394/photo/1

Or here if off: http://img401.imageshack.us/img401/1130/ljones.png

So Jones was in Chelmsford today. Seeing her mum? Just shopping? For some later article?

Thought you'd be interested and who is the other woman? Irani also put posted pictures of a child in a wheelchair with his dog, that's the level of the man. Note also Poundland in the background.

His wife, one would assume. It seems most sportsmen marry the same blonde/non-blonde bimbo type.

The spite and bile she spouts in this article is almost beyond belief.

She honestly gets paid to write this sh*t?

Blondie, I honestly think she is trying too hard now - it's a ridiculous charicature of an article (well most of hers are) but this really is beyond the pale - there are so many outrageous statements it's hard to know where to start.

This is the paragraph that makes me think she's really gone and lost it.

And in answer to the dozens of women who have stopped me in the street (OK, in Selfridges) to say ‘Why have you not commented on horse meat?’, all I can say is I wouldn’t dream of eating Dreamy, my disabled pony, but equally I would never eat Kevin, my lamb, or Mummy Sheep, my sheep, or Mini Puppy, my puppy. One of my chickens is on a course of chemotherapy, so precious is her life.

All animals are sacred, not just those that built an Empire.

Yeah, it is Lorraine. Looked different from memory and mistakenly thought it might be a pal of Jones.

Roll on the Breakfast Show and see if Irani brings it up.

A figment of her overactive imagination and her arrested development.

I wonder if her 'sheepdog husband' Michael gets jealous of her RS BF? Probably not, since he's imaginary.
And here is today's Liz offering. She's having therapy - AGAIN. and everything is solved - AGAIN. Of course, that will last a day until she realises she has to put some work into it.

Oh in this farticle she works an 85 hour week. One wonders what exactly she does for at least 84 of them

She's had therapy before for these articles and never acted on the advice given because she thinks there's nothing wrong with her. I have a friend with NPD and it's very difficult, if not impossible to 'cure' it.

She goes, 'Oh, now I have an insight to my problems' but it's all lip service - she'll never change as she loves to go through life acting the victim. And those bloody shoeboots. AGAIN.

For 'Wantology', read 'a load of old bollox, created to make money for some sod, and empty the pockets of the gullible'.

Hmm... hope LJ hasn't used the real names of her coursemates. [+Wantology is a misprint, imho ]
