  1. Hello all.

    I'm after some advice, again. I've had a (quick) search of the forum, and nothing specific came up. Hoping someone can provide an answer.

    I've got my second Interview on the 2nd of June, 6 days from today. The problem i am having, is i've got the makings of a cold. Sore throat, blocked nose and all the other symptoms.

    Will it be held against me in any way if i phone my recruiter, and ask for a new date to be set for my interview? I know well it doesn't look good, but i'm equally unsure about mincing into the office with a head-cold.

    Thanks in advance for any replies.

  3. i sgree with above... and also drink lots of water :) hope it goes well

    if its only a cold youl be fine, but if its the flu youl have to re arrange it, so fingers crossed its just a cold (and not man flu :p )
     
  4. Oh its man-flu alright.

    The missus will be worked off her feet if (when) it gets worse! And thanks - Simple question, bloody obvious solution! :oops:
     
  5. Gargle with whisky before bed. I'm not fecking around, this really works. It will kill the bacteria and stop it multiplying in your throat while you sleep (ever noticed a sore throat is always worst in the morning?). I suggest 10-year-old Macallan.
     
  6. Make a hot toddy before bed; a good helping of whiskey (as krek_brizzle said) a few spoons of honey, tiny bit of lemon juice, chuck it all in a cup of hot water. It works a treat.
     
  7. Drinking one now - Thanks!

    If this doesn't work though, it'll still be worth the effort. Its lovely! :)

    I opted for Fetercairn - 12 year old :)
     
  8. Is there a full moon out tonight?? For crying out bloody loud!
