I didn't think it would get to me too much as we wern't always best of pals, but i'm choked.
The family pet for 16 yrs. Obviously the Mrs and youngest are devastated. I had to bury her this morning. We'll never have another cat again, it just wouldn't be the same.
In better news, my eldest has sent off adoption forms today so i could be a grandad again this time next year.. They're trying for a girl this time.
They're fcuking pests when here with us lol but solely missed when they've gone.
Good luck with the adoption too mate and I wish them all the best of luck.
I was over the moon and they stayed a couple of days and took a shine to me even getting in my bed lol and kipping with me after the first night.
It made me realise though by the time they went back home what fcuking hard work they are and I won't be getting another dog anytime soon
Bargain Booze looks like it might be going into administration
Well they sacked him today Prick grabbed a female member of staff by the throat.
32k a year and 80k DICS money gone in one temper
I dont normally enjoy sackings but this one is a brilliant start to my week.
Great news Punt. I may be a touch sick, but always enjoyed watching these sorts clear out their desk. I feel that these types eventually get what's coming to them, but the odd one always squirms out of it.
I've worked factory and warehouse floors for over 35 yrs and he was by far the nastiest wanker i'd ever had for a department leader.
Despite being all this and probably worse, I assume he had his share of cohorts / boot lickers ?
Yeah they always do dont they. Even they turned against him in the end though and one of them was one he grabbed by the throat.
It makes me happy that it doesn't matter who their next boss is, i know that there are seven people in the warehouse department who are going to be much happier at work.
The perils of being loyal to a complete arse.
Nice one mate. Usually these wankers get away with their shit so it's good to hear this one's got his comeuppance.
Ditto what's been said Punt, what's DICS money?
Differed incentive compensation scheme.
For every year you're there the company put by a fund for you. It's dependant on how much you earn, how the company is doing and how the stock markets are.
Just been told it's gone up by over 47% this year ive never seen bigger than an 8% rise before
I'm considering taking it. There's a job going in the local bookies I'm thinking of applying for.
Never heard of that before, so unlike a pension you can take it anytime you want when you leave the company.?
This years increase means i'd have to pay 40% tax on it if i took though. The only way round it is by having a small part of it and have the rest put into my pension, or have it broken down and receive payments of it yearly for the next 5 or 6 yrs. I'd still have to pay 33% tax, this way though.
We're basically share holders and it's a scheme designed to stop the company being bought out.
