What a ****.

The 'no good deed goes unpunished' springs to mind. You gave them an hour in the morning and took a half hour in the evening.Why? The bosses will soon catch on and say to your fellow workers,"does anyone want to start at 8 and finish at half 4?"
I saw too many conscientious workers spend a couple of minutes of their lunch break finishing off something and then getting a right bollocking when they came back a few minutes late. BE on time- leave on time-take your time,- was the motto on a lot of jobs.
It's probably not relevant in an office environment, but in construction if your hours are say 7am-3.30pm and you choose to get ahead of the possee by starting at 6.45 your leaving yourself vulnerable if you have an accident. Most accidents happen in the morning, so the boss mans lawyer, the insurance company and the union will all argue that you have no coverage as you were not yet officially on the pay roll.

NRM the 2nd 26-07-2021 09:04 PM

I get this. As a construction manager this happens all the time. You can get in at 7 in the morning, 2 hours before some but dare leave at 5 and the grief you get like it's the biggest piss take ever. Mornings are far more productive but those hours obviously don't exist

Home Building Inspectors:

We are having our flat roof replaced/renewed. Work requires a permit, which leads to needing a home inspection after tear down of old roof, and on completion of new roof.

Thursday, guy shows up before the contractor can get to my house and starts walking away saying the ladder the contractor left him is unsafe (who am I to argue - the workers had been using it but...) and they will have to reschedule. I ask him if he can use my ladder, which he agrees to.

Put the ladder up and he climbs enough to stick his head over the roof line (apparently they are not allowed to get on the roof). After at best 10 seconds he comes down, and says it looks fine and signs off on the posted permit.

Today, final inspector comes to buy off the job. A different guy, but again gets to my house a few minutes before the contractor arrives. Apparently they call the contractor with a window of 4 hours beginning when they call... Anyway, they had left a better ladder. Up he goes, again just sticking his head over the top. Again 10 seconds tops. Says it looks good. By now the contractor has shown up with the permit to sign off, which he does.

What this all brought to the table I don't know, over than costing me $129.99 for the permit and $155.00 for the inspections.

Bureaucracy at its best.

P.S. I guess it keeps the cowboys on their toes, but if you don't get a permit, you don't need the inspections, so it's once again the people who do things to the letter of the law get shafted. Or maybe you get what you pay for... not sure what recourse you have if the workmanship proves crap after have these "Inspections".

I can't remember exactly. I liked it at the time because sw16girl used it very well when putting another poster down.

It wasn't a mantra I wish to follow, more a celebration of how she handled a miscreant. Please read it as such.

Not sure what sympathy he expects just because he wants to beat the commuter rush. He should feel shitty for the weekend - come in next week at 8.50am and not try skiving off early.

His contract doesn't state that if he is stupid enough to give the company a free hour before 9am, he can start making up his own rules, and work to a flexi-time arrangement that doesn't apply to other people.

If you want to do that, work for yourself. See how skiving off works when others aren't supplementing your relaxed start to the weekend.

Seems that the nearly post pandemic workforce of the UK have some kind of issue late afternoon. I would call it the 'cake and eat it syndrome'.

At performance review time said manager will not recall all the times said poster went above and beyond by getting a good headstart on every day.

That the poster felt his start to the weekend was uncomfortable suggests he knew he dropped the ball in that regard.

I have had whole semesters ruined by a boss pointing out a flaw in my work on the last day before summer holidays. Not very nice at all, especially when you start the semester with a token prize and get another one at the beginning of the next semester - from the same boss.

Some things you have to just suck up.

Yeah, I was looking for a reaction. But the BBS is again failing. It shouldn't be up to me, hours and hours after the event, to point out the obvious flaw in the posters argument - especially when the poster prints it out himself.


I like this. But to be fair, he’s not my manager, just a senior manager. I work all over Europe (well, when covid permits) so my manager knows my working hours aren’t rigid as I generally don’t even have to attend the office and can work from home full time if I really want to.

This twat just seems to have a hard-on for anyone going before him, and he’ll happily sit there till 7. He’s a knob.

If someone bids you a good weekend, respond in kind… or tell me to **** off and let’s have it out properly. But the silence? That’s wankery.

Joe, your argument wasn't wrong. It is common practice that people knock off a bit early when there are big life events going on (like your country being in the finals of the football world cup). It was to your credit that you turned up early in the day to cover up that supposedly lost time.

Even in the extremely important "when the whistle blows" type jobs - for example, teaching English as a foreign language in the community college of a Chilean barrio - you would expect some semblance of work/life flexibility.

Any senior manager who had some sense of leadership would have told everyone to make sure they got home/to the pub in time for the football. Obvs professions who need to be present to keep people alive or the lights on are a vital exception.

The same guy gave me shit for rolling in at 8:10 a few days before, too, which is why I took particular exception to being treated like dirt for leaving when I did.

Or the universal, "half a day lads?" from the company crony, when you'd leave after a punishing shift, whereas he's done feck all but is going to stay on for a few more hours to boost up his overtime.
And of course there's the old intimidating, "there's a lot of guys out of work you know."

Why? For pointing out that you are breaking the conditions of your contract, and suggesting that you knew you were doing so becuse your arsewipe of a manager made you feel uncomfortable.

Next time work until 5pm and don't cry on here like a little bitch when you get caught bunking off early.

Or find a job where you can make your own rules about time-keeping.

Is it?

As big a reason as losing the colonies following WWII and being bankrupted by two wars.

Having to toe the USA line over Suez.

Election of people like Cameron, May and Boris.

The sell off of all manufacturing in the 70s, and the Privatiation of National assets.

Brown selling off all the gold. North Sea oil reserves being used to keep Essex man voting Tory. The sell off of all council housing stock.

The college fees and credit of university educcation.

When Great Britain was at its most powerful in the midst of the Industrial Revolution - how do you think presenteeism was down the mines and at the mills. Do you think people could bunk off 30 minutes early then?

Why post bollox, you can't back up?

Not really Mr Nest. My students are all bsiness people these days. Even in the Poly each class has set hours. The most I would get away with is finishing the class 5 minutes early.

I don't doubt that Joe's senior is a twat. Seeing as he isn't Joe's direct boss, and he is a known twat - the best approach would be / would have been to ignore him completely. Certainly not risk his rude silence on leaving.

Knowing the type, Joe has made a mistake by even attempting to engage with him in a civil manner. I have always ignored types like this.

I've had that one spouted at me (although in jest in fairness), but on more than one occasion I've come back with, "I've done 12 hours, so yes half a day".

Usually after flying back from somewhere in the mid-west going into work to report in, getting stuck there and leaving "early" in the eyes of the beholder!

Hedgehog 28-07-2021 02:02 AM

The reverse of the coming in early conundrum, is the coming in late, leaving late employee.

This used to piss me off more than anything.

No wonder flex time really should be thrown out in many situations. It has it's place, but is not a good working model for many companies even though they tolerate it.

PalaceForever 28-07-2021 02:10 AM

I bet that senior manager types emails out with one finger. Tell him to go on a typing course to improve his productivity and then he can join you in knocking off half an hour early.

Thats the power of packed lunches taken at your desk and a placcid veil fully polished and ready to go.

Vince Hilaire's Afro 28-07-2021 02:20 PM

When I'm watching a TV show, I might have to pause it midway through to have a poop or some other mundane interruption.

I like to stifle the bowl movement or suspend whatever the interruption is until such time as there is what I consider to be a natural break in proceedings on the show. It might be the end of a scene, or conversation etc.

I wait for the perfect moment - not only to pause the show, but also for it to recommence smoothly - and reassuringly press the pause button. Sometimes this works perfectly, for instance with streaming platforms which pause with one press of the button. However, some streaming devices prefer a setup in which when you press 'the centre button' on the remote, it brings up a somewhat intimidating feast of options, of which pause is merely one.

Cue a situation of mayhem and chaos, in which the unsuspecting viewer is suddenly thrust into a maelstrom of activity whereby they have to attempt to find where the 'cursor' is currently at (the fast forward option being accidentally selected is the ultimate nemesis). Invariably, once the intended pause scenario is achieved, it's inevitably at a wholly dissatisfying juncture, resulting in a most unsatisfactory, discomforting poop, as you know that when you return to the show it will be a disjointed mess.

I even managed to watch Palace play a game once - I think it was against Forest. Students were taking a test.

But you see, I am honest about my bunking off.

I had a formal life like many of us had or still have. Office work colleagues getting the hump because I had the BBS open while working. One set of colleagues liked to get in at 7.30am, problem is that more often than not they never returned from lunch drinks.

I didn't take their lecturing on my BBS time seriously.

Another pleb turned manager showed his true colours. He started after me, having gone through a myriad of jobs - bar manager, shop assistant etc.. Nice as pie he was. When he got promoted, he complained to my boss about me using the internet for personal stuff douring my lunch break.

You have to play the game in these dull, hard to escape from, office type jobs.

No regrets.

I see there seems to be a good number of BBSers having a dig at my postings. Yet, they are all prodding me with the poking stick.

Thus, I will continue to give my fan base what they require.

There will be some transfer news soon, and we aren't that far from whatever ups and downs the new season will give us. Plus, there is the new home kit for the juniors to wet themselves over.

My alternative job will be done, for now.

Right, where were we on Plague Islands?

Would you like it if someone said you were a great little doctor/accountant/nurse/dustman/barman or whatever job you do?

No you fecking wouldn't

Similarly, the Palace social media team referring to 'the boss' or 'the gaffer'. Maybe I'm just getting old.

I think today has been a great example of the 'BBS pile in' - all the usuals, and mostly responding with the same unimaginative comebacks.

Take a bow, clique.

I will spin my randometer later and see who I can dig out for tomorrow - Shortarse, TupperwarePete, or Mr Maztastic. Nesty is on my radar.

Olympic commentators who feel the need to over do the intro.

Dressage legend….
Skateboarding supremo…..

Etc etc.

No you fecking wouldn't

Similarly, people who refer to footballers as 'a great servant to the club' just because they've been around a few years, or seen out their contract.

Am I missing something here, or do we need further explanation?

To me it reads that you are experiencing a touch of Delhi Belly, and you are not leaving the house today until it is sorted. And you have had this issue a few more times than you care for?

How after all this time are Olympians having to PIN numbers on their kit.
If you were a 100m runner how could you be happy

Good point... not sure why the need to have their names on them either.

They are generally crap drivers who can't park any way.

They're the same people who leave a car's length in front of them at traffic lights, even if it leaves cars behind in a yellow box. Wankers.

Olympic medal tally and Australian prowess at sports.... WTF don't they concentrate on Football... Does my bloody head in.

They may be sh1t drivers but that scenario isn't their fault. Shouldn't be that close to anyone to get stranded in a yellow box.
