:mad: not a happy chappy this morning! Me and my other half are struggling this year to afford Christmas and have already told both families that we are only buying for our son as thats all we can afford - we are still goning to struggle to find money to buy his presents hummff
So my partners boss has told him not to come in to work as its too icy and he cant work on the roof (funny that the bosses son will still be going in and working on stuff inside the house that my partner is more than able to help with!!) - he was told not to come in last thursday (too icy) and sent home early yesterday (no work) but again yesterday the bosses son stayed on to work???
I told my OH this morning to request Statutory Garanteed pay to cover today and last thursday which is massively short compared to what he would earn but at least its something...but my OH wont ask...because he is a TIT!!!!!! He thinks his boss will tell him no yadda yadda....HELLO!!! Then you just say "INDUSTRIAL TRIBUNAL".....
My god...his boss infuriates me....sends my partner home early on one day and then demands he works late the next and pays him single time because he didnt go over hours during his working week as a whole...sly dog!!!! I swear to god I am ready to go to war on this guy...I have had enough of his sly tatics, you can read his every move like a dodgy chess player.....gives him short hours for weeks but just enough work that he can't apply for voluntary redundancy and then tries to pay him holidays based on his last few weeks earnings (he paid the full holidays after I had words about that one!!! :mad:)..my partner wont stand up to him and its always me that has to fight his corner...I wish he would just grow a set!!!! If only I could buy him a pair for christmas!!
Arrrrhhh!! So I will be spending my lunch today scouring the internet for evening work to try and make ends meet :mad:
First time this morning I really really wanted a smoke...but I havent...besides I couldn't afford to even if I did cave :rolleyes:
Sorry Guys...I had to get that off my chest...
