- School Hols – how to balance work etc.
That’s unfortunate. And quite hurtful, if I’m honest. But your certainly not alone in your opinion. Or wrong, for that matter.
I was going to ask you if you fancied nipping out for a pint later? Fancy it?
Unfortunately I have plans to make, work to do, kids to look after and a pious preach to prepare not forgetting that lottery ticket, I will never be a sucess without a bit of luckPosted 4 years agojamj1974Subscriber
Parental leave – we have 4 weeks leave (Not that I ever availed myself of all of it – more fool me.) available to parents of children 5 and under paid at 65% of base salary. Unfortunately my boys are 6 now – so unpaid leave it is…
Emergency parental leave is a different policy for us.
Bernard, I sincerely hope I have not offended you – also this thread is too long to read all of it retrospectively, so I have missed your original post you mention above.Posted 4 years agomolgripsSubscriber
See I said I had misunderstood what Molgrips was saying and I said I had not been clear in what I had said
Thanks for clearing that up. I think we all just mis-understood each other.
However – there are plenty of people (my father-in-law’s one) who DO think that your success in life is solely down to how much work you put in. I once said to him during an argument that not everyone can win, and he disagreed.
I tried to explain that there are very few movie stars, CEOs, racing drivers, published authors, professional sports people etc compared to fast food workers, cleaners, shit shovellers and so on, but he didn’t get it.
For everyone to be happy in their jobs you have to have the same number of people wanting to do shit jobs as you have shit jobs.
PS binners is a top bloke. Except a bit one-sided when it comes to politics.Posted 4 years agojekkylMember
It was me that said to Bernard that he was lucky not to have to work. I hadn’t gone back to this thread until now and didn’t realise what lively discussion my comment had provoked. I suppose a better word to have used would have been ‘fortunate’ – Bernard you’re very fortunate not to have to work, through whatever means that fortune was acquired.
I am in my last 5 minutes at work on Friday and shall be riding out this evening with some pints at the end, have a good one all. 😀Posted 4 years ago
