We use the term relieving letter for resignation letter here in India.
Is the term relieving letter valid for resignation?

I checked this:http://www.thefreedictionary.com/relief
Quote:
short for tax relief
But still just for confirmation, have I understood it correct?

I've never heard of a relieving letter.

If I am leaving or quitting my job, but on friendly terms, then I might give a letter of resignation. Letters of resignation are quite uncommon for most jobs. Usually one simply gives notice, which can be verbal or written statement of one's intentions.

Sorry, the relieving letter is given by the company
to the employee as a proof that his resignation has
been accepted.

Perhaps the relieving letter is Indian English?

Maybe, but I've never gotten one, so I wouldn't know.

I don't understand the point of this. As if, anyone is ever going to write on

IMO, a resume should be pretty much straight forward, starting with skill sets
,and ending with the job experiences (if any).


I think that I may be in agreement with your comments, if I understand you correctly, you are saying:- Don't state the obvious in a resume, it is irritating and a waste of the readers valuable time!

Thanks for your opinion, although, "no offence intended" it may be that you are stating the obvious a little . But in some cases or circumstances the obvious needs to be stated.

If I read between the lines, then I pick up a tone suggesting that the whole paragraph is a waste of space. With this I totally concur. And the owner of the paragraph in question, having read your comments, also reluctantly agrees.

Sorry I took so long to notice your reply.

Incidentally, your problem with the photography forum IMHO surrounds the word "boring"! It may be that you do not realise the sharpness and unpleasantness of the word, it actually shifts a useful comment (made by you) into the borders of harsh sarcasm. The fact is that candid shots (which is what you like to do) are always more interesting than set shots - but never never never call another persons work boring, because if you do then the you know what will surely hit the fan. But then, I am stating the obvious aren't I. Happy new year

That's right, and also it is "irritating". Just imagine
the mental of the interviewer who has to wade through this
"useless" paragraph in each and every resume!

I think being different sometimes helps.

I "will" call other person's work "boring" if and only if he
"explicitly" asks (the viewers) to be "honest" in stating
whether they are finding his photographs "boring" or not.
And, in this case if he finds my words harsh, then there goes
a saying "Get out of the kitchen, if you can't stand the heat!"

IMO stating the obvious is "needed" only when the obvious facts
aren't visible clearly enough.

Of course you will, because you like honesty in yourself and expect others are being honest when they ask for an honest opinion. However the hard road of life has taught me that a negative honesty is the last thing most of them really want. Unfortunatey I am still outspoken, to the point of giving offence, AND with both feet firmly stuck in my mouth, I generally press on regardless, of course, mostly, to my own hurt.

I understand what you are talking about - but the word "BORING" is considered a spoilt brats word, both here and where I lived in England. The phrase "Not as interesting" may convey the message just as clearly but not have the same insult potential.

Now just for clarity, I am not calling you a spoiled brat. In fact I would say that if your photos are as lively as your conversations - then they must be very interesting. If you are a good photographer, then don't let these snobby critics cause you to put away your camera. For if you do you may become -er - well boring

Keep the heat up in the kitchen

I did realize that lately.
The best thing that I can do in this situation to these
people is to put them in my mental ignore list,
and that's what I did.
Writing a detailed critique consumes a good amount of
time, and if those people can't even bother
to followup then they aren't worth my time.

Yeah, thanks, I'll remember that.

Whom you are calling snobby now? Those who dare to talk
without beating around the bush?

Anyway, that's not my problem. I am happy the way I am
and there goes a saying "The birds of same feather flock
together!"

I was calling your "boring" friends snobby. I would never call you snobby? - er Bossy maybe or pushy - hang on a minute whilst I get my foot out of my mouth. No your not either of those - or are you hmm? Definitely you are challenging though - and that is always a good thing

Subject: * buttons and knobs and others.*
--


On one's face, it is a button?

The "button" on the lips when you do not sleep much, or i.e. herpes. Is it a knob?

On the monitor, those are buttons (to tune the volume up or down)

In a car, is it as well buttons?


A GSM has buttons as well?

On a shirt or jacket (clothing), you have buttons?

Thank you. Good Evening

Faces can have spots or even lumps (if big) but not buttons or knobs.

On machines, they're buttons if you press them and knobs if you turn them.

On computer screen and clothes, they're buttons.

I've just spoken to a friend who is a teacher in a primary school. Kids have all sorts of new slang phrases. I really like this one: When someone boasts about something, they would usually say:

jam your hype. You've only got 2 followers.



I find it hilarious. Obviously they talk about twitter. Apparently, they don't even have twitter accounts.

"jam your hype. You've only got 2 followers." it is indeed weird. Still I do not really understand... what a strange slang

It's explained here. (The rest of the phrase is self-explanatory)

Why "user" (singular) closed "their" (plural) account?
