Thanks lads. It's clearing up slowly and I don't need painkillers to drive any more.

Unfortunately, Matt is on a stag do that weekend so he'll be a no show :no:

Both me and Laura might not be able to make it now.... so gutted :(

My bloody rubbish job might be getting in the way as Laura just pointed out to me that I said that I am down to work on the Sunday and I have forgot as it's not normal for me to only work just the one day over weekend!

#annoyedasfeck

Cant believe it as I havent been able to make a Santa Pod for a few years now and Laura has never made one either, I will have to double check on Monday :facepalm: :ranting1:

Tell your boss that you can't let your team mates down in the druken dodgems finals; HM is already iffy and beyond magic sponge help with his ribs.

Seriously pants for you if you cant make it :crybaby:

Not to mention, I've never been to Santa Pod OR driven dodgems!!! And, as it turns out it may be possible to get temporary insurance on my MR2 so I could even put my car on the stand!

Right..... now I am back on and able to access this forum.... (breath Dave). My boss is Scottish and expects everyone else too work the way he does but....

I don't live for my job,
I don't live on site and
I defo don't get paid his salary either....

but he still expects more from his staff each year and we get paid less and less each year as well. If I ask for it off even tho its not my normal working hours it will go either

No you can't and be an argument and I will have to work,
Go to the office and it will be an argument and cause tension or
Maybe if I am really lucky I will be able to have it off but get crap jobs for a month!

I would love to be there as we both of us really want to do a Santa Pod this year and Laura wont be able to Japshow Finale either. Plus also Laura is a student and not normally driving her MR2 so will either have to come in my MK3, her Skoda or pay £80 to insure her MK2 for 3 days and find the money for ticket, fuel, food etc

I will speak to my boss on Monday and see what he says! :shocked:

Dave your boss sounds like a right tool. Has he no people skills at all? So much for keeping a happy work force.

Dave, in our troubled times a jobs more important than a show.

The sentiment expressed by the members above shows just how well regarded you and Laura are. (or you owe them beer :D )

+ 1 Good managing is so easy to do and I have no idea at all why more people do not practise it.

I hope the **** comes to his senses so we get our playmates.

Dave we are all legally entitled to time off
As long as you give sufficient notice ( whatever the company policy is ) and the weekend isn't already booked by too many others, there's not a lot he can do
The same rules apply if you are self employed mate, you just don't get paid (:
