    Default MY Last Week


    I have been working in Weymouth for the last 7 weeks, A week ago on a friday I was asked not to return untill the folowing wednesday as they were waiting for materials and so nothing would be ready for me, wednesday turned into the following Monday(yesterday), On Sunday night I got a call from my Boss saying that he had not been paid and so wasnt putting any more labour on site untill he was. Great early xmas leave Just had a call from him saying that the builder has gone bust so we wont be going back, Bummer, not for me I have been paid but He is owed a small fortune, I realy hope he can stand it as he realy doesnt deserve this at all, Out of all the people I have worked for he has been the most decent of the lot.

    Fukcing Construction

    I bet they come back under a different name the Bastards.



    Ps 10 mins later the phone goes with an offer of work driving a cherry picker in my home town, I start tomorrow.


    SO THIS WAS THE BEGINNING THEN THIS HAPPENED

    Ha Ha you wont believe this I turn up this morning and introduce my self, The Agent then goes right of on one coz Im the 3rd guy the agency has sent to him this week and he now has to do another induction, I stood there listening to him F and blinding at me for a few minutes then I said "so do you want me to drive your machine or not" he says Ok give me your CSCS card and you driving licence, I give him my cscs and he says thats out of date I say I know that here is a current certificate to go with it because the new card has not arrived. Not fukcing good enough he said that only last for 3 months and goes of Fing and blinding again, Ok lets see your IPAF licence then he says.

    Go fcuk Yourself I reply and leave.


    I call the CITB about my card and what I have (expired care and current cert) is valid for two years so he dont know what he is talking about and was just looking for an excuse to have a go because he had to do another induction. They also confirmed that I have ordered and paid for a new card and are sending it special delivery.

    Looks like xmas has started for me then.

    Thats bad luck mate, a real boot in the stones this time of year.
    You hit the nail on the head with the builders coming back under a different name, "The Bastards" would be quite apt, lol.
    hope u get something soon fella

    I hear ye brother.
    Your messages are really important to us
    ...but not important enough to employ a sufficient number of support staff to answer them.
