    i know lol, one thing i noticed when i was in scotland was nobody ever complained if i worked on a sunday, i didn't do it much but never got any complaints or snide comments when i did , if i did that down here i'd be chased off with dogs lol although i've now started asking people if its ok when i need to catch up & most have hummed and hahd & said ok but they think its odd.

    Scottish people are brits too, lol, for now anyway. No I tend to work 10am - 4pm on Sundays if I have to work it. I've never had any complaints.

    but when you think of all the things people do on sundays that require other people to work eg pub,shopping & garden centres its a bit weird they stuggle with other jobs

    Seriously........you are considered a pleb if you have to work Sundays down this part of the world. I would work an 8th day if it was available. Did a job in a shopping centre the other day at 1am to avoid the nasty security jobsworth security guard

    I will only work a sunday if absolutely necessary, such as, if i have lost a heap of days through bad weather, i'd rather spend the day with my family, or some other variation of 'having a life'!. In the 2.5 years ive been cleaning windows i think i have worked maybe 4 sundays. Had enough of that in the previous 5.5 years at stagecoach!. As for working an 8th day?, ditto, i work to live, not the other way around!.

    no one wants to work sunday but its good to have the option as for time with family well since i went on my own i never missed a sports day or an assembly presentation & my little un lives in scotland now & i still get to special ones & the odd parents evening & i couldnt do that with any other job i've had so the odd sunday means nowt really
