    • Emmzzi - you are correct! I'd never actually done the maths like that, I think in the past (I've been there for 5 years, company going for about 9), there was only ever 8 drivers, and even now most of them don't take all their holiday entitlement each year historically anyway because of this culture of "presenteeism" and the natural replaceability of old hairy-ass drivers like ourselves. Unfortunately people like me/us are a dime a dozen to management....   Complain too much, off you pop and there are a thousand more like you to replace you, so be grateful and keep schtum.   However, I'm now starting to feel a bit aggrieved about this deliberate "taking the p**s" stance from manager.    Now there's 12 rather than 8 drivers you are quite correct Emmzzi - genuinely I hadn't seen that. Thanks. More ammunition for me. Ta 
    • you have 25 days remaining. 12 drivers x 5 weeks = 60 weeks, which is more than exist in a year.   This rule will never work.    
    • Shouldnt be able to? Are they open? We usually advise not to contact them over the phone but.... You might have too?  
    • Appreciate the opinion Ericsbrother thanks.    It's one of those situations where I can be right yet still lose out. I'll certainly get him to put his refusal in writing though.    It's also difficult because his policy is "only one driver can be off at any one time for holiday". Fair enough, I understand why. However, if that means there aren't physically enough days left in the year for all 12ish drivers to take their entitlement before year end, then it becomes problematic.   My request for last week in August has been refused because there's already a driver booked off. So, I understand insomuch. Every other darn week has now got someone off on holiday now till mid Nov!!!    I may need to force the issue with this last week in Aug. It's just a shame that things always end up this way. It's not my first rodeo with small-minded petty middle-mingers types. Shouldn't have to be this way.    
    • I suddenly got a text message from CRS just a few minutes ago saying their solicitors had issued a letter of claim.   Yet a couple of weeks ago their page said they were no longer dealing with this account. Yet suddenly it's open again and they are sending a letter of claim?   Help?   This is what it said.   I assumed that CRS were no longer dealing with this . I didn't expect to suddenly get a notification that they are sending a letter of claim.   Can they actually do this still after saying they aren't dealing with the account any more?

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
      Thanks for reading

starting to think it was a bad idea the retail loss sites changed


"biggest database of dishonest people"


is now


"We believe we have the largest database of civil recovery defendants in the UK."




the faqs changed alot it no longer says medical issues are not there problem.


Nevertheless our client is prepared to be reasonable and consider your medical circumstances on the condition that you provide us with a letter from your doctor, with them explaining your illness and how it affects your actions. A letter from yourself without professional evidence will not be taken into account and the case against you will continue.




the bit on if you payed for the goods no longer states that they will pursue you no matter what..


If you believe that you paid the full value of the goods in question then please write in with a detailed letter of explanation of your version of events, providing copies of the receipts, in order that this matter can be investigated.




and the data protection bit now lists it as being used for employment reasons
