    • Hello there,   My wife (62) has advanced arthritis on both hands and wrists (inherited from her mother's side of the family).   She left her job as a youth carer in January of this year because amongst other issues with her inability to work they pushed her into office and admin. However, with her arthritis, writing or using computers became impossible. As nearly all jobs available requires some use of hands, which she is unable to do, what benefits would be available to her. Does my wife qualify for anything?   Other info. She does have arthritis in all areas of her body, but for example she is able to walk reasonable distances, sit down comfortably for reasonable lengths of time, etc. She also suffers from psoriasis (which may have played a part in her condition).   A friend of hers owns a wine bar and offered her a job (not too taxing) but it required her to carry wine bottles and glass which was OK-ish for the first 60 mins but then became impossible for her to do.   Any help or advice greatly appreciated.   cheers sidley
    • I think it will be very helpful to let people know more detail about these debts. Who is the original creditor? How much was the debt for? When was the debt incurred? When did you last make any payment or acknowledgement of the debt
    • Hello and welcome to CAG. Thank you for the information, it will help the guys to advise you. Please don't do anything until they've had a look and possibly asked questions.   While  you're waiting, you have other VCS airport threads for Liverpool and Southend, possibly others. It would be worth a read to understand how they operate.   Best, HB
    • What part of never use email Never communicate with a powerless dca hasnt been understood?   If you want to do anything which you should as it also protects your backdoor if the debt were to be sold and a DCA were to litigate as it stands..send our sb letter from the debt collection section of our library   Thats goes to the oc as they still own the debt
    • Good afternoon - I've received a parking charge notice from VCS - grateful for any advice - do I ignore/appeal? Can VCS enforce the restricted zone in this way, covered under bylaws (I think)?   Driver didn't notice signage, vehicle wasn't actually stopped by double red lines (as pictured)   1 Date of the infringement 25/11/19 2 Date on the NTK 29/11/19 3 Date received 4/12/19 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? No 5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? Yes 6 Have you appealed? No 7 Who is the parking company? Vehicle Control Services (VCS) 8. Where exactly Bristol Airport - on "privately operated access roads", just outside car park barrier, not car park itself - stopped for 5 seconds to pick someone up, didn't pick them up and drove away when the camera van arrived. Operate under IAS   Thanks in advance!

Hi Guys,

 

Just had an absolutely horrible experience and I feel like such a hypocrit.

 

I am employed a chain of hotels and I have just had to meet with a lady who did not pay her bill for an event (almost 2 years ago) and my company have issued her with a CCJ.

 

The lady new nothing about it as she had moved and only discovered it when she applied for something and it flagged up on her credit file.

 

I had to play the bad cop and tell her exactly what would happen if she didn't pay the judgement. Attachment of earnings etc.

 

I felt like such a bully. She didn't know what to do and by her appearance she can ill afford to pay the bill. But I had no choice and had to lay it on the line as my boss was sitting in the meeting also.

 

I felt like screaming 'get it set aside' but I couldn't. I walked away from the meeting, having terrified the life out of her, feeling ashamed and extremely pee'd off with myself. But I had no choice.

 

I never want to go through something like that again...the poor woman.

To be honest, if you felt so bad about the situation, then boss or no boss, grow some minerals, and inform her of her rights and that she can have this set aside.

 

'People not Profit'

The greed of some people and companies knows no bounds, and only acts to make peoples lives a misery especially at this time of year.:Cry:

 

Is there no way you can contact her and inform her she can have this set aside?

bazzoka boo, it was a very difficult position to be in, after all, if you hadnt have said it, it would be likely in this day an age, that your position would have been compromised and based on this i.e. any other duties in the clause of job contract...it would be likely he would have been asked to leave, or she..sorry., as you would have been in effect, acting against the companies intererests..

Regardless of what anyone above has said, just exactly how would getting yourself into trouble with your boss help anyone? It is not your fault that she moved or that the company got a ccj against her.

 

At the end of the day altruism is all well and good and laudable but you have to live in the real world as well.

I would love to contact her and advise her on what to do, but I can't run the risk. I have a family to feed and need my job.

 

My boss kept at me to explain the consequences if payment wasn't forthcoming, I had no choice.

 

It was an extremely uncomfortable experience and I do feel for the poor woman, expecially at Christmas time.

 

She did say she would take advice, hopefully someone will help her get it set aside...unfortunately it can't be me

OK my initial comments were a little harsh, and yes I agree you have a family to think about so felt you were between a rock and a hard place.

 

Hopefully she will be able to find the right help.

You can't blame yourself. You were only doing your job. If the Lady should of paid 2 years ago why didn't she?

You never know she might pop up here on cag asking for advise.:)
