Was gonna ask if there is a Greek person in yer work but I am late.

There is a Greek lassie in my work. Will have to watch for similar stories at mine.
No. The closest we have is a boy who's dad is Turkish. I went to school with him though and was good pals with him. I can't ever recall such an incident happening at school nor did I see it when I went to his house so I doubt it's him. No foreigners but a few manky b*****ds who I expect would do this kind of thing out of spite.

The lad that sat next to me as I worked on Friday talked utter nonsense and proceeded to shit himself mid conversation and carry on as if it didn't happen.
Working from home has its drawbacks especially with toddlers involved

Was your 1st thought it's still better than listening to Boris or Trump?

Could also go in the Covid thread - bit of a blogpost, but all our company offices are shutting effective tomorrow. Getting paid a small retainer indefinitely which is better than nothing I guess, but might lead to something akin to a nightmare mode version of Masterchef at home ("let's see what I can cook up with half a bottle of lucozade and 3 eggs!") in the near future.

Hoping Milky Gem is holding up ok at this difficult time.

Many thanks

Kind regards

Stay safe

Not sure if this is the right thread but anyway. My employer pays for my rail season ticket and takes it out my wages each month, but now all daily business has to be done from home and I'm occasionally going into the office when I'm on shifts but the train times don't suit. So I applied for a refund but it can take Scotrail 28 days to process this (despite rail travel being suspended on day 1) and then it can take HR up to 8 weeks to sort out the pay issue. So this is going to take around 12 weeks probably 5 months wages I assume I'm entitled to the over paid money? HR are being incredibly wooly about it. Unions aren't interested so much so I had enough and left. Anyone had similar experiences? I don't know why Scotrail aren't refunding as default they can no longer provide the service I purchased.

I can understand why your work are being iffy about it. They give you a loan to buy the ticket and expect it back. They won’t stop collecting it because you can’t use the ticket. Especially if you are wanting a refund.
Scotrail will eventually give you what you lost back but how much should they give you? 1 month, 2 months? No one has any true idea about how long this is going to last for.
It’s sucks you are paying for something you can’t use but your just going to have to be patient on this one.

My employer "lends" me the money to buy an Annual Season ticket.
On my first day of working from home I went to the station I bought my season ticket from to get the balance refunded, it had just over three months to go.
The refunded was in my account within a couple of days.
My employer will continue to take the monthly repayments from my salary which seems fair enough.

After previously stating the fear I had regarding my new job and being a complete lazy c**t during my notice period, I was advised on my last day that the site I was on was going to be working with skeleton staff on site, essentially meaning 2 or 3 of management on site while the workforce continues to work. So although I left last Wednesday, I still believe there are workers on site attempting to adhere to social distancing. Fucking mental

My new employers have been in contact with me throughout this pandemic, and I officially started with them on Monday. However they have took the sensible approach to close all of their construction sites. So I’ve been advised that I’m currently on the payroll and that all I can do is to ‘stay at home and be safe’. What a difference to the previous mob I worked for.

Make sure you get paid. Under the furlough scheme, your employer cannot claim the 80% back for you as you weren't on their payroll on 29/2

No problem.

As a fall back, you could ask for your old job back for now and to be immediately furloughed.

His old job could quite easily refuse as they're still working.

They could, yes.

But there would be no harm in asking if need be

Exciting news from work. Indulge me for a minute.

We've got a lovely c**t working with us - mentioned on here before, I'm sure - who's managed to pointlessly piss off everybody over the past few years. As an example, she appointed herself as High Chief of the Going-Away Presents for anyone leaving the organisation, even if that person's friends were already organising something, and would tell the person leaving who hadn't chipped in, or who they thought hadn't chipped in enough. The only reason she seems to have for this behaviour is to see the look of hurt on other people's faces.

She found herself a new job last month, to the joy of everyone, and fucked the organisation over by not working her full notice period. Whatever, we'll cope, see you later. She appointed her assistant to collect money for her going-away present - not a single penny raised, and the only person who signed her card was the assistant.

Couple of days before her start date, Cunty Cunterson's new employer gets in touch to explain that, sorry, we're shutting down operations for the foreseeable future due to COVID-19, so we're not in a position to take you on after all. She then had the brass neck to go crawling back to the High Heid Yins to try to withdraw her resignation. Glorious.

...or it would have been, if they hadn't accepted it and kept her on. So close  :angry:

The government have given us the all clear to work from the office again, providing certain measures are in place. There's a girl who has obviously let her personal hygiene go due to the lockdown and social distancing.

But, as she's the only female I've spoken to in three weeks, it's a wid from me.
