    Well my full time lad had arranged to have a long weekend, that's fine he gave me plenty of notice so OK.

    My part time lad comes in this morning, before we have even started the van (to go and do a whole two hours of work) he's bitching about having agreed to come in for the morning on a bank holiday!

    The key here, is he was asked, not TOLD, asked! And he said he wanted the extra hours!

    So after his third comment in 10 minutes I retorted with 'well why don't you just f*&k off then?' 'No ones forcing you to be here'

    Well, he then retorts, 'That's nice, I'm doing you a favor here!'

    HE'S DOING ME A FAVOR? I gave the little ***** a job, gave him extra hours where and when even on occasions where there weren't really any hours going!

    'Go home, don't need you, thanks for coming, will square your money in the bank today!'

    That was him dismissed.

    Next up I get an email from a customer (a real mother effing complainer, but only if there is grounds for complaint) saying that my full time lad had skipped the side windows (frosted bathrooms) not done the side of the conservatory and so on and informs me that our services are no longer required. (Not a real loss to be honest)

    So I call up my full time lad, 'Whats the deal?' I ask,

    'Oh well I was a bit tired and couldn't really be bothered' he says.

    This is after he got back yesterday (a fair bit earlier than usual to be honest) and said all jobs were done with no issues or problems!

    Well guess what? That's right, with that one sentence he got himself fired too!

    I am so sick of giving these people chances and just having them try to make a mug outta me.

    Done the math today, by getting rid of them I save over £4K per year in running costs alone for second vehicle, fuel insurances etc etc.. and that doesn't even include the £20K per year on their wages.

    Decided I have now had enough of the charity and will simply be rolling solo for a very long time, we were expanding nicely but like they say..............

    If you want a job doing right, do it yourself! F^&* expansion, I can make more money with no staff and also without the aggravation and stress of being responsible for someone elses shot comings.

    Happy easter....

    ....you're fired! lol

    The second bloke was a dumbass, who the fk tells their boss that they couldnt be bothered? Kids these days seem to have lost the ability to bull:turd:

    But the first one, are you sure he wasnt just having a bit of banter?

    Nah, I known him long enough to know when it's banter or bitching. This was bitching.

    This might sound like big headed bull s4it Tuffers but they couldn't take my custies if they tried, I really do have such a strong round and personal rapport with my customers that you pretty much have to wait till I'm dead to get my custies away from me.

    What can I say? I'm just a likeable mother f&*^er!! :p

    I thought myself that was a bit OTT as unfair dismissal springs to mind.
