I don't mean split shifts.
We've had this guy come in work this week to basically upset a few people and make them leave. He is the biggest bell end i've had the displeasure of knowing (i know him from his last stint at our place, but other people don't know him as they started after he left).
He's been given the nickname "pockets" as all he does is walk around with his hands in his pockets, giving out orders & doing absolutley sod all himself. We're busy as hell this week & he's been talking to people about doing overtime to help out.
He asks me today what time we got away last night.
I say why, did YOU not stay? I thought you would've to help out. (careful how you read that one as there's 2 ways you can say it. I mean it in the non-agressive way)
No no i can't stay. I've got things to do.
So i tell him i got done at 7pm and others stayed until 8:30pm (we're supposed to finish at 5:30pm)
He says that's not too bad then (knowing full well that comment would irritate anyone who stopped). He says the boss many could've had us working until 10:00pm if he liked (we start at 7:30am).
I say aye he could do .......... but we'd be starting later though.
No you wouldn't says he. You only need 9hours between shifts.
I think you'll find it's 11hours i point out.
No, it's 9hours.....unless you're working past midnight & then you're considered a night worker he says.
Where on earth did you pull that information from i ask.
It's 9hours he says with a smirk & then buggers off.
This chap is "one of those" who is never wrong. You know the sort.
I'll happily hold my hand up if there's some print somewhere that says this 9 hour thing exists, but i can't find it.
Is he full of shizzle, or is there some sort of truth to what he said?
