Soooo tempting.............  :lol:
I'm wondering what the legal position is with only having 6 hours off between two night shifts - not that it would do any good aqnd I need my job !

Dragon - Do you want me to ask our friendly HR expert if she knows? If so PM all the details to me, so I know I'm getting it right.

EU Working Time Directive says either 10 or 11 and limits the number of weekly hours. You can opt out though and some sneaky employers pop an opt out in t's and c's. Not sure if you can opt out of the time in between shifts thing though. Having said that during summer survey season for us it's a regular thing to have less between shifts. But it's voluntary

@ Gangrel - cheers for the offer but it is semi sorted now (got 4 days off after the second night shift)  :thumbup:
@ CP - I signed the opt out years ago - not having someone tell me what I can or can't work - if I want the money I will work for it - normally works out ok its just the boss is short of staff at both sites and doesn't seem to want to employ anyone to save money - which is idiotic as she is paying for the remaining staff to cover the hours anyway.......... :scratchhead:
Makes it even worse when she has sent both night shift staff from the other site on the same course on the same day - sometimes I wonder if she actually knows what she is doing.......... :roll:

just read the news concerning Ian Banks (the auther of the culture novels)
I can only hope that he and his new wife have a wonderful time together, in the time they have left.

Got a "lovely" surprise in the mail yesterday. I've got 3 months to move out of the flat I've lived in for 24 years. :( The perils of renting, I guess. I also guess that they're going to tear it down and either build something they can charge more rent for, or expand their McMansion from next door.

Hope you find an adequate replacement and that the new flat won't cost more rent.
Not a nice way to start the weekend.

Heh. Nice idea, but since I live in Australia it'd take several weeks' rent just to get there!  :P

When someone is supposed to be your boss/supervisor and all they ever do is get in your way and tell you what they think you should do when they don't have an F'n clue what it is you actually do on a regular basis.  Then they make a huge mess and bugger off telling you that it's your job to clean it up.  Sorry but my job isn't to babysit your lazy arse.  Would I get fired if I knocked him out?

My friendly Big-Issue seller has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and has about a year left... I am gutted for him :(

He is a really nice chap and I always go and chat with him. I feel very guilty because I always thought that he was suffering from alcohol withdrawal but it turns out that he has been under cancer treatment for a while.

He is working on a bucket list...

I could have cried when he told me :(

That is a real shame Inso .
I have a regular customer who has had a larynectomy (think that's right - larynx removed) and has a hole in his throat so can no longer speak properly he does a pretty mean impression of Darth Vader though ! The rest of the staff don't like serving him as he struggles to make himself understood , I just get a pen and paper out and we communicate that way. He was telling me this morning he has just got the all clear and there is no sign of the cancer  - which made me happy because 6 months ago they told him it may have spread to his lungs and if the current treatment hadn't worked they didn't have a lot of options.

My sympathies, Inso. The big c is something that really pisses me off - I lost a friend to it a year or so ago, and a (distant) aunt didn't recover properly from anaesthetic from an op to remove hers. :(

Was going to the cinema this morning to see the new Star Trek film only now I have to wait around for a British Telecom engineer who is coming to install the new box for Infinity (superfast broadband for non- uk Fodders) - nice vague window " between 12.00 & 1800 hrs "  :hmmm
Alright I should have a very fast internet connection by the end of the day but having to sit around for six hours on my day off is a bit annoying to say the least !

I hate time windows like that. "Well be here between the next five minutes and... A million years from now" I'm sure they wait until they see you go somewhere and then they pounce on your house just to say that they called and you were out.

You know... You could paint some of that dragon that you know you want to show some pictures of.

Just had 2 BT vans parked in our road - our engineer arrived an hour after the one down the road and has just gone -the people down the road are having Infinity installed as well - don't BT look at job sheets surely one engineer could have done both jobs they are only about 300 ft a part !  :shrug:
On the bright side the other van is still parked down the road so I take it they are having problems - my internet is going like a ferrari on rocket fuel ! :woohoo:

The green BT roadside cabinet in the village wasn't supposed to be upgraded until June/July time but they were ahead of schedule and accordinging to the engineer they are speeding up the upgrade program so you never know Brandlin............
