  1. Apologies for getting a bit het up, especially to Wierd al and Chester Express. Was in the middle of reading through replies, but have just had a phone call to say my dads been taken in to hospital so can't make a fuller reply just now (nothing serious, just some more extensive tests than he was expecting). But one thing I do feel I have to say - I told my boss on the Friday I was helping fit the bathroom and as far as I am concerned I was through driving the van. I don't feel I have lied or even embellished the truth, I didn't feel the need to go into details of my precise involvement. Once confronted by her I told her exaxctly what my role in the bathroom fitting was. As for my work duties, i would have been working when I was off sick, I would have been providing one-to-one support to a young man with learning disabilities and a high degree of extreme challenging behaviour prone to outbursts of violence over a period of 24 hours. I don't feel that I would have been able to do my duties justice and being there alone, there would be nobody to say 'can you take over' to.
  2. Again, your opinion. However, I'm looking for advice and support not another kick in the teeth. Cheers.
  3. Obviously you're entitled to your opinion, but really if you have nothing constructive to say, why bother posting? If you feel all I am doing is having a moan about work, then just leave at that and don't get involved. If you have something constructive to add then I welcome it.
  4. I didn't really think I had a leg to stand on. I hadn't recieved the offer in writing, I haven't had any previous time off sick since starting with the company and in previous employment my record is as near as dammit exempelary. I had seen the doctor 3 times over a fortnight regards chest infection and had a sick line. Driving a van is very differrent to my duties. Since starting with teh company I have bend over backwards, covering shifts, swapping shifts, working Christmas Day to help out co-workers with family abroad, staying on late to make others lives easier. None of this seems to have been taken into account.
  5. That's pretty much what I thought. What gets me is that it was that she felt what I did was morally wrong - that was the phrase she used several time. B@@@h!!
  6. Last week I was offered a job within the company I work for - a significant step up. I spoke to my new boss on Friday and mentioned that I was helping out with fitting my sisters bathroom - in all honesty I was driving a van but wanting to sound impressive said this even though I wouldn't know how to begin fitting a bathroom. I was off sick at the time with a chest infection. I then got called through yesterday and confronted about this. I explained that whilst I was fit enough to drive a van, there was no way I was fit enough to perform my work duties. The outcome was the job offer was withdrawn. I guess I probably know the answer to this, but do I have any comeback here?
  7. Cheers Martin, had started another one saying the same thing. If you wouldn't mind, you could just delete the other one.
  8. My wife recieved a letter this morning from Charles Anderson regarding Council Tax arrears. The arrears aren't in dispute, but due to circumstance, we haven't been in a position to clear these and they now amount to £2934.76. However, this letter is a mandate looking to arrest £1454.06 held in trust for our 2 kids. This is an accumulation of birthday and Christmas money and money that their Grandpa pays in for their futures. We've tried phoning Charles Anderson, they were, as always, very unhelpful and tried the Council to see if they could call them off. We are in a position where we could maybe clear about 25% of the debt and then make arrangements to clear the rest over time, but basically what I'm asking is this - Is there any way we can get them to get their grubby mitts off our kids futures?? Any advice gratefully accepted
  9. Firstly, what a forum. If I understood even half of what was talked about on here, I think I would be some sort of genius!! Anyway, enough of the fawning:D I'm here because my wife recieved a letter this morning from Charles Anderson regarding Council Tax arrears. The arrears aren't in dispute, but due to circumstance, we haven't been in a position to clear these and they now amount to £2934.76.
