Still waiting to be let in as a full member but just wanted to let you all know that yesterday I QUIT MY JOB!!!!! I had an interview at another place on Thursday and was offered a job yesterday afternoon so immediately typed up my resignation note and took it up to give him. He didn't seem bothered until nearly TWO HOURS later when I got an irate phone call saying how I couldn't leave, I was one of his main staff blah blah blah
Only downside is I have to do a ten hour shift today and don't get ANY breaks (one of the reasons I'm leaving!) and will have him in probably giving me grief
Ho hum.....take a deep breath Gill
Speak more later hopefully.....everything else is great.....no computer issues for a few weeks, both cats are fity and well and Neil *touch wood* was also offered a new job on Friday so HOPEFULLY the Sh*t Fairy will fly off and bother somebody else from now on instead of constantly pestering us
Im on the run just pooped in to see if any birthdays today, been hectic 2 weeks sister visiting from USA But gilly THATS ILLEGAL you must ge offered a break every so many hours you are only a Key Member whom he knows he can exploit
Do not fall for his charms , New Starts for both of you
Popped in very briefly last night so didn't see this. You have made my day Gilly! I hate to hear of dedicated hard workers being exploited. Please do not let the boss talk you round,he will probably make promises he has no intention of fullfilling after taking advantage and treating you so badly. He has also broken the law by making you work such long hours without taking a break,that's how accidents happen. Hope the tide has turned for you and Neil and everything goes smoothly from now on.
Good to see you back on the forum. Good luck getting through your notice period without hassles. Good luck in your new job hope it is significantly better than your current one. Good to hear Neil is looking like he also has a new job.
tonib: Sounds like it was a good job we didn't have Roman as a kitten then. He's never misbehaved like that, only his first Xmas with us when he half-inched the stuffing! - I hope that's not famous last words!

tonib: Lexie is another matter but usually not breakables - except potentially of herself when she fell behind the large display cabinet/sideboard on being left alone for the 1st time in our dining room aged 2.5 years!!!

tonib: She jumped on top (via the table I believe) & managed to fall between it & the wall & appeared to be suspended by her head part way down (the gap narrowed!) I had to get a burly neighbour in to help move it, quickly moving weight/breakables as pos. 1st

tonib: She was fine but got checked by vet just in case! That was a heart stopping time, especially her cries!

lotsofcats: I can remember when that happened with Lexi.

lotsofcats: It won't be for long. When I had kittens I just used to sit and watch them for ages - are you doing that yet?

Gillykat: Oh yes......just drinking their adorable cuteness Been picking up and cuddling new boys too and they're starting to realise I'm a harmless idiot who gives them a treat every time I do so.
