    When Learn Direct issued my certificate, i took a vow to uphold the principle of law.

    Sure, i could use my particular set of skills (skills i have acquired over a very long career) to ruin this woman's life in all manner of underhanded ways. But that's the way of the closed fist. The dark side. The renegade path.

    And i, Rodimus Prime, am a paragon.

    While i am skilled in many ways, evidently including the art of seduction, my people skills aren't all that wonderful. Which is why i thought i'd reach out to my pals on the Eurogamer forum for assistance.

    Thank you to those who are taking this for the serious matter it is.

    I'm taking this situation VERY FUCKING SERIOUSLY. Show me someone on this thread who isn't.

    Hmm this might actually be Liam Neeson, do you often go out wish a cosh hoping some "black bastard" has a go so that you can kill them.


    With these new facts coming to light I think Jambo should tread carefully.

    Okay Jambo. My apologies. Here is the email i am intending to send. I'd appreciate any feedback. I have been assured by my other coworkers that they will back me up.

    Hi Rachel,

    It has been said that the present imbalance in shift pairings is going to be addressed which will result in people being swapped around. I know that youíre out most of next week, and Iím off the following week, so have decided to send this email. I had been meaning to speak to you about it before, but itís an awkward subject to broach so kept putting it off. I hope it can be taken into consideration.

    Kelly seems to fancy me Ė Iím not being big-headed, but others in the office have relayed comments she has made about me when Iím not here, and I do catch her gazing at me quite a lot. It feels like a sort of Nicky 2.0 situation, and is a bit uncomfortable for me.

    I donít know Kelly very well (though more than Iíd like given her predilection for disclosing personal matters so loudly in the office), but there do seem to be certain parallels between her and Nickyís personalities. Nicky didnít take it very well when it was made clear that I was neither available nor interested, and it is getting to the point where I feel like I need to make it clear to Kelly as wellÖ although this is difficult as she hasnít said anything directly to me, and seems to know that I broke up with my previous girlfriend.

    My concern is that because Iím quite a lot more passive than most others in the office, Iíll end up in a situation Iíd rather not be in because others are more vocal. It would be a nightmare for me to be paired with her.

    Sorry, this is a weird email and not one I would have expected to have to write. Iím not sure what the answer is; though it would sure be convenient if Kelly and I were on opposing shifts, I certainly wouldnít expect my little drama to dictate any plans. I do hope itís something that be considered though.

    You may recall that I offered to switch my shift when Sarah leaves, but I understand that this offer has been refused. Is this because youíre worried that Sarahís replacement will also fall in love with me?

    Maybe we can catch up when weíre both next in the office?

    I'm not an expert on women but I reckon giving them a version number is definitely normal

    Do not, I repeat, DO NOT introduce Sarah's replacement to Moonracer, not if you don't want a sore cock for all the fucking you'll be doing. Actually you should be worried just in case Rachel wants a piece. Be prepared.

    Rachel is the only female not leaving a puddle which the Moonracer could again sail on every time she passes Rod's desk. Lezzer or blind

    I feel like Rodimus could really help GamedotCritic with his ability to get pussy.

    I imagine Rodimus' life like a detective noir story...

    'Light beams cut through the blinds into the smokey office, catching dust motes in the air. As I focus on them, marveling at them dancing in the light, I catch her looking at me. Our eyes lock for a moment, before she looks away, blushing.

    "Is that a Mass Effect keyring?" she asks, her words are like silk, like the red, low cut dress that hugs her straining busom... '
    Go on...

    What's a 'Nicky 2.0'?

    Nicky was the previous coworker who loved me. There are lots of similarities between this situation and issues i had with Nicky.

    I used to think that i would love a girlfriend who is also into video games, but it's not enough to build a relationship on in reality. It didn't help that she'd go on and on about Dragon Age II, which would make me think of Isabella, who she couldn't really compete with.

    Though to be fair to Nicky, i don't think they had to have a quite word about sexual harassment to her.

    Are these previous conquests still in the land of the living?

    They're not really conquests. Just women who fell for the wrong guy. I would have happily been friends with Nicky but it wasn't enough for her. When she found out i was already in a relationship she went mental and handed in her notice.

    When she calmed down she tried to retract it, but the company said no.

    I feel bad for her, but Kelly is actively dislikeable. If i got her sacked i'd have even more power and influence.

    No, she's the pirate lady in Dragon Age II, and the love of Hawke's life.

    I'd speak to your manager's manager.

    Just in case your direct manager is her 'friend'.

    Make it a formal meeting, and if you've joined a union, get their assistance - have someone from the union join you as a witness.

    Hurry up, though.
