Post of The Month (September)

Maisy is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Shaunie,

​I care. I really relate to what you have been experiencing with the house falling apart, and things not getting fixed due to general shame of the state of the house and not knowing where to begin fixing things or who to contact (you don't want to come across rogue tradesmen). Not even having adequate heating and hot water. And clutter. Everywhere. It's horrible to live in such circumstances, I know. It's hard as well when you see everyone else living a 'normal' life and yet being unable to talk about your situation."

  • Staff being lazy on Fridays

    At a few places I've worked at, most of the staff would put a lot less effort and concentration into their work on Fridays (particularly during afternoons) than they did on other days - and that would be tolerated by the boss. I put the same amount of effort in regardless of which day of the week it was. When I'd ask colleagues something about a particular case or needed their assistance with something, they'd reply by saying things like: "I couldn't give a shit - in a couple of hours time I'll be in the pub getting pissed!" or "Ask me some other time - not on a Friday afternoon, for fuck's sake!". On some of those occasions, I'd have a client on the phone who needed an answer then and there - but couldn't get it because most of my colleagues were mentally elsewhere and thinking only about how drunk they were going to get that night.

    Is there a way I can effectively tackle that? At each workplace I tried telling the manager of this problem, but all of them were lazy on Fridays as well and therefore sided with my be-lazy-on-Fridays colleagues.
