    dyou think this was a flippin cheek?

    . was driving along in my van, 4 up in the van , and 1 of my lads take a phone call. it goes on for ages and i suddenly realize its somebody interviewing him for a new job somewhere.
    hes telling them "yes,i can start anytime"

    what would you do in that situation?

    That is really taking the peesh. I would have been fuming. Didnt you have a word with him?. I cant see him being a committed member of your team boar....would be tempted to tell him to walk....though he may have done that already.

    i was gobsmacked , i still am. whoever it was speaking to him was talking about getting a visa so im thinkin its a job abroad,maybe its even a working holiday scam as they wanted him to pay by the sounds of it . id normally offer friendly advice but in this case will let him get in deep sh/t

    Has he told you that he is leaving boar. I would have been really annoyed plus it doesnt look good in front of the rest of your crew.

    he said nothing to me, it was as if i didnt exist. total disrespect
    i dont want to sack him on the spot just yet as we are working flat out at the minute, but i must put in hand getting his replacement.
    till then i will be making sure he does much more than his fair share of the work

    Such a lack of respect Boar, honesty is the best policy. If you ever need lads to help, I could get my son to ask his mates, they are all 16, and just left school. they are all in 6 form, as they have no choice anymore, but most don't go in 5 days a week.

    That's really bad mate. I would talk to him to make sure you haven't got your wires crossed, but if that's what it was I would sack him off.
