    • Serco are not up to the job, but director's of Serco are buddies with Ministers handing out contracts like confetti on the back of Covid.  Track & Trace and Isolate should be a LA competence, not private firms on the make.   Interesting blog today, the genesis of the crisis started with Blair in 2005, subsequent administrations did nothing to improve responses to pandemic.   https://www.turbulenttimes.co.uk/news/corona/scared-to-death/    
    • Independent Sage met yesterday and has a new report out.   They think the national test and trace system doesn't work and are urging the government not to renew Serco's contract. They say the job should be done by GPs and local public health people who are already deal with the more complex cases and care homes.   https://www.independentsage.org/an-independent-sage-discussion-document-on-contact-tracing-and-self-isolation/
    • Thanks for your reply.   I don't have the money to get the repairs or inspections done to be honest.    It's a BMW 1 series.   I've learnt my lesson. I was having a pretty hard time with my health to be honest at the time. I bought it as a present to myself but was too trusting. 
    • This is a tricky one, BMW's , wide wheels, low profile tyres, stiff suspension over deviations, German Cars are known for that.  It might have winter tyres on, that would cause a rumble. My Volvo is also very weird like that.  It could also be a wheel bearing, which isn't expensive but would need to be done. Why not take it to your mechanic for a an inspection, or the AA/ RAC also do that.  I've learnt the hard way that's what you need to do before you buy the car,    What BMW is it?  I would only buy this brand of car at that age if it had a full history of every service and everything that has been spent on it during it's lifetime.
    • If you get somebody to cover for you on those last three days, are you saying you are OK?  ie you don't need to go to work in your old job and you can start the new one?  So that gives you what you want - yes?   If you can't get somebody to cover for you, you've got two potential courses of action - which may or may not be mutually exclusive.  First, ask if you can move your termination date forward by three days.  Obviously you won't get paid for those three days and whether your current trust will agree to this depends on what sort of relationship you have with your manager and how much they will need you to work those three days - or how easy you will be to replace.  If they say OK - you win.   Second, you don't turn up for work on those three days.  You will then technically be in breach of contract and in theory the trust could sue you for any financial loss they suffer as a result.  This would be the cost of employing somebody to replace you for those three days.  Will they need to replace you?  I suspect they would not bother to sue you, but nobody can guarantee they won't.  And what if you want a reference from them in future?  If you've already asked to bring your leave date forward, and they've refused, they may rightly conclude that you are taking the pi$$ if you don't turn up on those days, and they won't like it - or rather they won't like you...   Or, as I said before, get your new start date put back three days.   The thing is, your current employer can't extend your notice period unless you agree.  If they won't allow you to take leave owing to you during that notice period, they should pay you for it.  Whether you should write to them as I suggested earlier is more complicated because the situation is much less clear cut than you originally outlined.  (You had implied that they had already refused your request to take leave owing to you during your notice period and that you would have to extend your notice period to allow you to take that leave.  That isn't quite the position, is it?  And they haven't actually said they won't pay you for any leave you don't take, have they?)   Two other things: first, are you changing employer within the NHS?  If you are, it's a possibility that questions may be asked if you are in the pension scheme and you have two periods of full-time employment that overlap.   Second, your manager's email refers to "your last working day".  This is a little ambiguous and can cause a lot of confusion in the NHS.  You may wish to check whether they mean it is the last day of your employment (ie including any leave you are taking) or is it the last day you are actually present working.  Do you see the difference?  Managers often get hopelessly confused by this without HR guidance.  (And HR often get it wrong).   It's a pity you can't or won't seek union guidance if you are a member - that's what you pay for.

    • 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

The case of Tescos and the Jaffa sticker in my egg.

Hello all.

 

I'm new, and need to explore this site. It looked like a good place to start a complaint about a very interesting situation about an egg and Tesco.

 

I had scrambled eggs last week. Broke open an egg, had my breakfast, and then went about crunching up the shells (I use them around the base of my sweet peas for slug protection). While crunching up the eggs, I noticed one of the shells had a sticker for Jaffa cakes on the INSIDE of the shell.

 

Now, I don't eat Jaffa cakes, and this is definitely on the inside of the shell. This was a free-range organic egg. Large.

 

The only explanation I can think of is the free-range chock ate some garbage, and it worked its way through the system and was embedded into the shell on the inside... yuck. Why are free range organic chickens eating garbage? By chance a jaffa cake wrapper drifted into the pen? Maybe... or maybe they have free access to garbage?

 

It's maybe a one-off, but man, disgusting.

 

Where can I post this? I think it's really interesting. Where should I go from here?

 

..and hello from a newbie!

 

Lhama.

Hello maroondevo52,

 

I can't read the sell by date on the sticker - as it's just a little round sticker that says Jaffa. The egg sell by date was 04 June.

 

I've taken photos, but people may think I've stuck this sticker into the shell. I didn't! Seriously!

 

I'd like to know who may be interested in this... I'd like to visit that free range chicken farm and see what those chocks are exposed to!

Thanks! I don't want help really, I just want to make it known... any advice on how to handle this (or to be told it's really not a big deal!) would be appreciated. I'm not upset, just amused and a bit disgusted. I'd like to know if any organic farming organisations would be interested, and if Tesco is using some farming that isn't so "organic..." AKA - feeding chickens garbage.

 

Chocks will eat anything really. I was at a B&B in the Borders and they were feeding those chickens left-over kippers. The eggs had a very fishy taste! Not very nice really.

hahah!

 

That is a good question! Who actually ate the Jaffa cake sticker? What do kippers eat? Maybe it was plankton that ate some jaffa cakes, and that little sticker worked its way up the food chain to that chicken that laid that egg that I happened to eat. I'm not happy then to have eaten that egg that had a Jaffa cake sticker carried throughout the entire food chain:-o..... uh, yuck.

Hi Trish76 :p, sorry to have made you spew your coffee on the keyboard!

 

I've been told that it isn't a jaffa cake sticker, it's a jaffa orange sticker. Makes sense to the size and shape. Doesn't make it any more disgusting tho!

 

I have photos, and if anyone is interested, I'll post the link on Flickr.

 

People here have too many very serious bank issues, and I'm just filling up bandwidth. Sorry for that, but maybe I made some people laugh with this disgusting story. I'd like to know how it got into a Tesco free-range organic egg - are they feeding oranges to chickens? I would think if you held out an orange to a chicken it would tend to ignore the offer. Ground up in feed? How did it get inside the egg? How does a chicken work is the basic question.

 

Oh well, thanks Trish76 and maroondevo52 for responding! :p

 

Lhama!

Hi welcome to the site.

Sometimes a story appears that grabs everyones attention this looks like one of those stories.

There are 2 things that you can do first of all I would write to Tescos and invite them to comment on how the sticker came to be there,in the first instance you would be expected to do this.See what they come up with.

If its shown as conclusive that it was a genuine incident then I would contact my local papers and share the story with the whole town.

To be honest I have heard a few egg stories.......but this one takes the biscuit..........or in this case the sticker !!;)

Erm, I am not an expert in biology, but isn't the digestive tract separate from the reproductive tract? I didn't think anything bigger than a cell could pass through internal organs.

 

So we have the chance of a chicken eating a sticker, which somehow manages to get trapped inside the body, and the shell, remain there and still be legible.

Or, it could be that the sticker got there after cracking the shell open.

I would not try to take this to court - it would be laughed before in seconds. Even if it was true, your chances of proving it are next to nothing.

Maybe mr Cockerel is a bit kinky and puts jaffa cakes stickers on the end of his willy as a condom?

Perhaps it was put there by aliens....
