What is it about the work ethics of this country? I have had two employees jack on me in the last 24 hours. I would understand if they were paid peanuts and treated like cnuts but they are not. First off some knob throws in the towel BY TEXT at 21.30 Giving me no notice period, leaving me with no cover, thousands of pounds worth of my kit with no operator costing me money, and a customer on the phone tearing his hair out! And then to top my fantastic morning another twat doesn't turn up and his phone is switched off! Leaving six people to stand about and scratch their collective arrses at a cost of Â£285/hour. The work I do isn't rocket science, or even ballistic dynamics, but it does require a competent employee to be reliablle and trustworthy. Two traits which seem to be lacking in the modern civilian workforce. How satisfying would it be to be able to charge cnuts expenses or even issue a good shoeing if they don't show up! You would certainly see a change in attitude then. At the minute most bods wouldn't give a monkeys about the consequences of them being a jack barsteward. As always its the faithful 85% of the rest of my guys who have to pick up the pieces. Am I the only one, or does anyone else have any horror/comedy employees? I'm off to make a brew and calm down!
