At my work we all need to work 1 Saturday a month which can be a bit of a pain but nothing too bad. Anyway last month I had took my turn to work a Saturday and this girl in my team was frantically trying to swap her Saturday shift with someone so she could go out, so I obliged to do her a turn with the understanding that she do the same for me. This morning I took a look at the schedule and saw that I’m due in on the 7th which is when we play hearts at home, so I say to her in the nicest way possible that she work that weekend with her telling me “fuckin no chance am out that weekend” 

Seething doesn’t come close 

I never agree to these things unless I get the return leg agreed too. People are c***s like that.

Her working that shift for me was shook on, which is why it’s so infuriating, proper arsehole behaviour imo.

A swift kick in the pie is merited here.
For future.... what would happen if you agreed to do one of her Saturdays again but
didnt show up?
Is it an agreement between 2 people or does management need to be informed?

I like where you're going with this.

Shirt and trousers. Never a suit. Ever.
Always a suit for a higher level job, other jobs I don't care, I just want to know if you are good people & I will get that through talking to you, be presentable & wear what you want as long as you dont turn up in Lonsdale jobby catchers.

Also, should follow instructions ie if it says dress code on the invitation to interview and you do something different it maros you out as a bellend.

Are dress codes for an interview a thing? Bugger that.

If I had to do that the blame would be with me unfortunately otherwise I’d be doing that in the future 😂, these sort of shift swaps can be/are very informal and management will be informed once 2 people have agreed to swap.

There's interviews for an internal job going on today, a few of my colleagues applied and they're all going in wearing jeans and other informal clothes emoji36.png

I know in those cases you know the folk doing the interviewing but christ would most folk not still wear a suit?

Why?

I haven't worn a suit to an interview in ages. I'd imagine it's probably best to wear whatever the norm for the company is. If I was doing an internal interview and some guy had been wearing jeans for the last 2 years and and suddenly comes in wearing a suit, I'd think that was a bit weird.

Because it shows you're treating the occasion seriously. I do dress like Wurzel Gummage so maybe I'm projecting.

It doesn't really have any bearing on how seriously you're treating it though. The only advantage would be if the interviewer had the idea that people who wear suits are serious and people who don't aren't. And I think that's generally not a commonly held view anymore outside of a certain set of professions or industries.

What kind of job do they need to tell people the dress code for an interview?

I wouldn’t give a job to someone who couldn’t be arsed to put on a shirt and tie for an interview. If you turn up for an interview in jeans you might as well not turn up.

It’s been pretty mainstream , all over europe since about the 12 th century , sadly it’s been a problem longer than our green and blue friends , and I find that deeply depressing 
Why's it been a problem for so long?

I have seen emails for interviews saying smart dress and ones saying formal dress not required etc.

I am unsure if its a test. It does happen though

Did a group interview assessment thing once where a guy turned up with his tie undone and halfway down his shirt. I spent the entire time thinking 'what a complete tit, this guy's got no chance'. We both got the job and he was significantly better than me at it. Turned out he had a cut on his neck that would have made doing his tie up fully quite painful.

Not massively relevant I suppose but always gives me a smile to remember what an idiot I was.

Not work related but university related.

A lassie in my class who is roughly in her 40s and has two kids will accuse any man of being sexist if they disagree with her.

Eg I had said I would rather have went to Glasgow Uni but due to my qualifications and work experience of having worked in the prison service it wasn’t deemed enough.

This was sexist, and I was to stop it with my patriarchal bullshit. Merely for pointing out that at Glasgow uni an A is between 90-92% where as at UWS an A is 70%.

Are you genuinely ( difficult to believe on this forum ) asking me why anti semetisim has been a problem in Western Europe for a 1000 years 

Sadly I am not a qualified historian able to accurately answer your question , but I would guess the deep fear of “ the other “ or outsiders will have a part to play , along with prejudices that are imagined , again against the outsider 

 

jings , some folks

I have thought about this for a bit and cannot understand how what you said could be in anyway sexist

Have you asked her why the kids' Dad has almost certainly fucked off and is banging a woman who probably isn't a perma-seething bunny boiler?
