After 40 years

Post by grandad » Thu Jan 25, 2018 5:09 pm

In construction I said bollocks to it yesterday


I inducted 6 Romanians not 1 spoke any English not a word and all though not a massive site a big enough site and site rules needed to be followed but if you cannot understand the rules how can you follow them you would think ?

So I held them back called the top man and he said fucks sake they were here to clear certain area so the work could go on. But they are a danger to themselves and others I said. He said just let this go this time and change them on Monday


So I just walked out changed My boots to shoes put boots in bin and cut my CSCS card up.


that's me lot with construction and a new job is on the horizon for me after a few weeks off.

i have the same issues with some deliveries. some drivers not speaking a word of fucking english in a health and safety driven environment. told somebody i use not to use that haulier again due to ratio of foreign drivers. if that makes me a racist, fuck it. i want the job done right. i want them and everyone else to be safe. when loading at mine or delivering to customers throughout the uk. also, zero communication on delivery with multi-drops on board has a massively increased likelihood to go wrong. so i'm protecting my firm and trying to maintain a world class delivery performance. criteria i'm appraised on and the entire workforce has a % of its bonus based on that also.

the country is messed up. logic kicked to the kerb. just to keep it all pc.

fuck off .... call it how it is.

Spot on mate ... Let's get it right also about theses jobs a lot of English don't want to do them I understand that ... But we have gone Back years with standard and quality of work. Cheap labour and it's just worn me down. And that this week just tipped me over the edge. ..... And you know what it's like a 10 tonne weight has been lifted off me.


The counties fucked but we cannot dare to say it because the pinkos will scream extreme right wing

I waited in for a delivery last year from Hermes. No show. I phoned them and their rep said the guy had tried to call but I wasn't in. I told them I'd been in all day but it's possible I was in the kitchen, but if that was the case surely they'd have left a note. She said that was their policy but she apologised and said they'd be here the following day.

Exactly the same thing happened.

Now the estate I live on is like a maze. Even the satnav takes you to a different road, at which point the drivers will phone me and I meet them. But this guy didn't. I began complaint procedures about wasting 2 full days of my time, then I eventually got a call from one of the bosses.

He admitted their error and I was refunded £20 and I picked up the parcel myself from their depot. Chatting to the staff there, it turned out that the driver, who was called Yorgi or something, was Bulgarian and didn't speak a word of English. He'd lied about calling as he didn't want to appear a cunt.

:lol:
