What about partially blind/deaf/mobile – when do they become disabled? Is it when society doesnt make allowances to use what vision/hearing/mobility because it would get in the way of “normal” life. Impairments tend to be conditions – disabilities are the effects of those conditions. Disabilities change with situation.Posted 5 years agoscuzzMember

OK, Glupton, we all get your point. Now tell us a story about punching people or go away.Posted 5 years agoRscottMember
I told mine to get out my f***ing way and start doing her job as i’m not payed to, I told her i frequently thought she was a usless bint and should either stay out my way or better yet go **** herself aomewhere she might be needed.
Fallout was me getting a bolloking from the Area manager, who ended up laughing and saying he knows exactly what i mean but to try and keep it to my self next timePosted 5 years agomarsdenmanMember
50% of our team had recently been caught fiddling their figures. It was a team effort. Quite a big team effort.
They should have been fired.
About a week later I’m called in to get a rollicking for not reaching my figures. I told the boss there was no way I was going to take a kicking for not reaching my figures when he’d not the spine to do what he should have with the 6 cheats…
Many, many moons ago I used to work in a factory in Failsworth, Manchester. Manny (of stone roses fame) used to work on the shop floor. IIRC, he was sacked for punching his supervisor.Posted 5 years ago
Well, there was this one day up at Innerleithen, must have been 4 years ago now. My and a mate of mine, onehundredthidiot off of here, were out for a ride on the singlespeeds, his bike was rigid, mine had toras on the front of it. We were sitting at the top by the trig pillar enjoying the sunny day. Anyway – these two folk on commencal meta 5.5s come up, wearing all the gear, including armour – now i’m not sure if they were wearing armour or stopped at the top to put it on – it doesnt matter. Onehundredthidiot looked at me, I looked at him and we both had the same idea – give them a minute or two and then go and make them eat dust. So we gave them a good couple of minutes before chasing off after them. We had passed them both by the time we got to the junction of the old and new sections after the southern upland way. We then trundled along the fire road to the top of plora craig section, they decided to go first almost pushing past us as if to say – we’re quicker than you so let us go first. So we gave them a couple of minutes and proceeded to catch them early on and pass them quickly, before stopping at the bottom of the last stone chute on that section. We then waited for 5 minutes until they passed us – not a word was said. So we trundle along to the top of caddon bank. This time we had a brief chat at the top, before one of the guys paid us a complement that we could fairly shift given the bikes we were on. The other guy said something along the lines of “yes – light bikes so they’ll descend quickly” We then tore off down caddon bank and despite them definitely setting off down caddon bank, they never appeared at the car park in the time we were there.
That the story you were after? 😀
sam42 – did you read my posts?Posted 5 years ago
There was no story about punching anyone. There was a factual account of me deflecting someone who was running to grab my son after the wee fella had fallen over at edinburgh zoo. My then 2yr old boy fell over – stranger starts running to pick him up which would have blocked me from picking my son up, so I stepped between the stranger and my son af the guy bounced off me and fell over. It’s not that exciting that story though.Posted 5 years agothv3Subscriber
I recently had a boss who liked to throw his weight around a bit but I had never had any problems with him personally. One day he basically tasked me with some hair brained scheme which I told him was a waste of time.Posted 5 years ago
Funnily enough, it turned out to be a waste of time.
The next day he pulled me aside, accused me of insubordination and being lazy etc, then threatened to “take it outside” if it ever happened again.
In silence I walked over and pressed the lift button while taking my jacket off and rolling up my sleeves.
He paled a bit and refused to get in the lift with me.
Funny, he’s not said boo to me since 😈
(but I am glad he never followed too!)trail_ratMember
or we work with idiots ….
mines was because the fella in question thought when he was drunk it was a good idea to try and rip the pockets off our trousers ….
he managed with one of the lads , we all thought it was a laugh haha – carry on.
later on in the night he tried it with me , unfortunantly for him I wear trousers that are held together with more than duck spit and toilet paper. so he decided to try and debreek me in this busy bar – i was wearing a belt and keep my trousers on my hips.
so having no success and with me repeatedly telling him to back off and leave my trousers alone – with him getting angrier and angrier ( we were all drunk) i then punched him in the nuts.
then once he stopped recoiling we shook hands and agreed that if it happened again there would be trouble, he stopped being an arse after that.Posted 5 years agorobdixonMember
almost – I worked for a manager for 6 months who the whole team round the bend with his tantrums and bi-polar like decision making process.
We delivered carefully planned payback on a team night out that resulted in him being woken up by the cleaner at 11:55 the following morning to find himself lying naked in a lake of his own vomit on the bathroom floor of a hotel room. He made the mistake of sharing this fact with someone else he’d screwed over earlier in their career and fortunately for us they were very happy to broadcast the fact to all and sundry.Posted 5 years agostevomcdSubscriber
Back in my old life (railway engineering) I’d had to work night-shift at a site at the other end of the country over the weekend, meaning hours and hours of driving and very little sleep all weekend. On the Monday morning, I allowed myself a 10:30 start.
When I got into the office, my boss informed me that HE had also done a night shift at the weekend and that HE had been in the office since 8.
I asked him if he wanted a gold star. Seemed to end the matter – in fact, we got on better after that!Posted 5 years agorocketmanMember
When our old company went bust the Top Guns (including me for some reason :-)) convened in a nearby pub to decide how we could carry on doing the same thing with 10x fewer employees
The discussion was fairly heated as you can imagine and one of my ex-colleagues accused our ex-boss of raping the company
It was water off a duck’s back though the boss had the attention span of a goldfishPosted 5 years agoDrRSwankMember
I told my ex boss he was ‘p-ing’ me off totally in front of his entire leadership team. He got booted out of the company the following day.
Then told his boss he was a ‘banker’ in front of other colleagues. He fell about laughing and then demoted me 🙂
Some you win, some you lose.
Best fun was telling the owner of a software house he was a lazy, useless tosser that was dragging his company down. As he was trying to get a huge contract from us at the time he wasn’t best placed to argue…
Sadly I had a reputation for gobbing off at people. Eventually (after the banker incident above) HR put me on a coaching course where I learnt to be rude to people without using offensive langauge 😉Posted 5 years ago
