  1. My line manager recently resigned, a new director has taken over the team in my first conversation I have with the new director he tells me "You are going onto a PIP". I was pretty shocked as had no warning from anyone, written or verbal, that this was coming. I was already feeling stressed prior to this and this tipped me over so I have been on sick leave for past 2 weeks and just been signed off for another 2 weeks. (I have had virtually no sick days in 12 years prior with my employer). The PIP objectives themselves have not yet been discussed or agreed / signed by me.
  2. I am embarrassed to say I got caught eating a product at tescos I did not pay for today, which I completely forgot about, long story short, the police didn't get involved they took the RLP route said a letter will come through soon. I know most members advise against paying these [problem]mers but I feel far too embarrassed and would rather just get it over with. My question is, how will the record they keep affect my future employment with Tesco themselves? Since I am a pharmacist and Tesco is a very big chain, would paying the RLP effectively
  3. An investigation has come to light into missing correspondence about patient care. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2017/feb/26/nhs-accused-of-covering-up-huge-data-loss-that-put-thousands-at-risk?utm_source=esp&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=GU+Today+main+NEW+H+categories&utm_term=215114&subid=7192694&CMP=EMCNEWEML6619I2 HB
  4. Hi All, new to the forum. The work you guys do is great so I've bought a webmail account to support the site how I can. A family member has received a letter from CapQuest stating they've taken over their T-Mobile account. The letter seems politely worded but not fooled going by CapQuest's reputation (I've been through several threads on the site). This appears to be due to a default on a 'phone contract around 2010 I think (aftermath of the recession). We've moved to a new house since then and they must have employed their usual methods to get in contact at the new address.

  7. I have discovered a knitting wool that is virtually impossible to purchase in the UK. The one store that does sell it has to order it from the UK/Canada once it has been ordered from the UK website. I found a company in the USA that sells packs of "mini skeins" at a reasonable price which allows me to then decide if I want to buy the full skeins. I set up a subscription to join this "mini skeins club". The price including postage is US $ 26.00 Just over £15.00. So I was a little miffed to discover that I had to pay £11.41 for my package before Royal Mail would let me have it
  8. Hi sorry if this is the wrong forum, I couldn't really find a match-fit I imported some goods from the US a while back and they were delivered straight away by DHL International. Some time after this, I received mails saying that I owed them for Import Duties & VAT. I rang them and the person I spoke to said that DHL would never under any circumstances release any shipment that required payment(s) without that payment first being made in full. He advised me to ignore any future mails. Mails kept coming but I ignored them. I have now had two correspondences from an ou
