Some People!! Im Fuming!!



IM SO MAD ...im furious...


came into work at 9am this morning....thought it was a bit odd that my receptionist wasnt already here......


openend the door.....


there was their key through the door....

and thats it...they'd just finished....no note, no phonecall, no explanantion....jsut decided they didnt want to work here anymore.

Now., the problem is..he had only been here for 3 mths, he did not have a written contract, he was 20, he waitied til he got paid last week..he owes us no money and we owe him nothing.....

AND my other receptionist is on her owed holiday and is back on thursday...why could he not have at least waited to do a bunk on friday/??
I cant believe he's jsut done this...

i cant do anything...if he SHOULD be stupid enough to put us down as a reference then obviuosly he wont get a decent one.....but other wise he gets away scot free!!

i mean do kids these days have NO work ethics??
why would anyone be so rude as to jsut not turn up??

im so angry..

i wish i could screw him over really bad but he' sone of those poeple that words would jsut go over his head....the law is probably not even on my side...


its disgusting...hes the scum of the earth and i cant believe hes got away with this....
any suggestions for sweet revenge welcome...

( yes it is a blessing in disguise that hes gone...but the way hes done it...goooog im so angry)

Re: Some People!! Im Fuming!!

Sorry to hear that AF. He must have known that he'd be dropping you in it leaving when he did but clearly didn't care.

In my experience a chilled glass of white wine round about now often helps.

Re: Some People!! Im Fuming!!

Sorry for you ALFA -Female

You hear so often to day,
`It is only a job.
No pride from the fact,
that there is a certain dignity in all
tasks,
Hence the lack of respect shown,
by so many workers to day.

I`ve no doubt that this will raise a few
eyebrows.

But it is the way I feel.

Hope you get a good replacement,
soon.

John.

Re: Some People!! Im Fuming!!

Chill AF - it is not the end of the world...

Good riddance is what I say - phone up a temping agency and get one in if you really need to.

But be careful on the letter of reference as if you give a bad one he could actually litigate against you for slander... If it comes to that pm me and I will give you pointers on how to write a reference without defaming someone but giving enough clues to how you feel...

Perhaps if you find out where this chap works in future perhaps you should plague his boss with prank calls about him....perhaps claiming to be a love sick transvestite or something

' Hello is that the boss of (insert name) yeah is fanecia can you ask (insert name) to call me as I think he needs to know about my test results and he never answers my calls'

' Hello its me again, I really need to speak to (insert name) I know you are the man now sleeping with him or why would you employ him - you know he needs to take an aids test'


Etc

Re: Some People!! Im Fuming!!

Whilst his behaviour is unfortunate, commitment does work both ways

"he had only been here for 3 mths, he did not have a written contract, he owes us no money and we owe him nothing....."

Whilst this may appear a little sexist, why was a 20 yr old lad wanting to be a receptionist?

Re: Some People!! Im Fuming!!

Its fair to say things like this happen a lot and yes its very annoying

I would have thought there's no chance of getting any money back he owes you either.

One question though, how come he had no contract ?

If we are unsure of taking someone on we have a couple of routes to go down.

1. Take them on but they have a 13 week probationary period or

2. Take them on on a zero hour contract. Its basically like running your own temp agency. If they are rubbish don't offer them any work, if they are mediocre offer them work when it suits you or if they prove themselves move them from a zero hour contract to full time.

All I can say is good luck with finding a better and more loyal member of staff in the future. There are some pains in the butt out there but the are some excellent people as well

Have you ever noticed? Anybody going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac

The great question....which I have not been able to answer...is, What does a woman want?

no monies owing thank god.....he didnt have a written contract as we are a small family business and not really au fait with contracts....too trusting i guess...

Re: Some People!! Im Fuming!!

Chill.

You've got a Spider. Put the roof down, turn the radio off and go for a 3 hour blast around the A and B roads of South/mid Wales. If you are not smiling from ear-to-ear when you get back, give the Alfa away, buy something German and let the anger and bile spill forth.

Alfa's are driven by nice people.

Re: Some People!! Im Fuming!!

I don't think the reference thing is a problem at all, just say the guy didn't turn up for work one day and left you totally in the lurch with no notice whatsoever. What bigger nightmare is there for any future employer?

BTW all of Chris' suggestions for revenge are good.

Pffff. Baby stuff. An internet cafe and an anonymous mail
account can cause way way way more damage.

Re: Some People!! Im Fuming!!

Alfa-female, maybe it's a blessing he's gone. Imagine if he'd treated your customers like this. It's better that he's done this to you, rather than damage your business. I know it's annoying, but let it pass. There are better people out there that you deserve to work with, and you will find them eventually. It's taken us the best part of 13 years to finally build our dream team! We have given them a stern warning; if they even think of leaving, we'll sack them lol :-)
