Well for some reason nothing surprises me much anymore in relation to employment laws here! Well, maybe no the laws as such but the ability for empoyees to fight their corner ... and usually win! no matter what they do!

I know working in the public sector in the UK usually meant a job for life as it was so hard to get rid of anyone! ... but I think if I had called my Senior the "Son of a Whore" ... I would have got a little bit more than a compensation package! lol

Well...we could do with some employment law around here. You see, Mrs H has a little part time job washing fish boxes down at the local docks...keeps her occupied between 6am and 2 pm. Now then, that's when boredom might set in....so...in anticipation of collecting much needed brownie points, I managed to get her a job on a local building site...you know, mixing cement..carrying bricks..that sort of thing, between 3pm and 7pm. I thought this might keep her occupied for the rest of the day before she comes home and does dinner. Well...talk of ingratitude !! She says there are'nt enough hours in the day. I disagree, and have warned her about the consequences of mental stagnation. So...she has sent me to Coventry...has'nt spoken to me for 3 days......Ahhhhhh !!!BLISS!!!
