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

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.

To be honest it was none of your business who he was speaking too.

That's always struck me as being the hardest part about employing people. Putting in time, patience, money, and knowledge, only to have them go off and work for themselves or even a competitor.
