Note to self do not brag about on your blog for the world and karma to read about having a wonderfully idyllic week off from work.
Previous to me starting back Mike and I had come to the decision to give up alcohol for a few weeks.
Tuesday - Notes left on desk about a minor staff fraud and no one had dealt with it - Dealt with that and sorted out other cock ups connected with the case. Two months worth of incorrect card transactions land on my desk - cheers, have hidden them for now.
Wednesday - Arrived at office to find a staff member had committed acts of sheer stupidity the previous evening which has now caused me a huge and I mean an incredible amount of work. Sorted out suspension and dragging in of staff for further questioning. Dealing with a freaking con man who decided to visit a couple of shops that afternoon. Trying to ensure I have enough evidence as defending a claim against the company in court. Return home to find a bottle of Pimms in a cupboard whilst searching for a bottle of soy sauce. Unfortunately no lemonade to go with it.
Today - Trying to keep major staff stupidity from too many people whilst I'm investigating. As more information comes in it becomes worse and worse.
No agreement can be made in court so we return in a few weeks time.
Meet with staff members and am almost speechless with rage.
Told operations manager I'm going to retire and work part time in Hobbycraft on a 16 hour contract as I'm pretty sure they get a 30% staff discount and way less hassle - I'm not allowed to retire but was promised a new company mobile - wasnt quick enough to ask for a whacking big pay rise.
Have to walk home from work in the only downpour we have had in the last few weeks. Mike is working away this week and downpour started as I left work and stopped just as I returned home.
Not fun walking in the rain whilst wearing a wool suit.
Debating whether to try the Pimms with tonic water! I will probably have a milky camp coffee, three twix biscuits and a chip butty. The only crisps in the house are prawn cocktail - ewwww!!!
Plans for Friday - Contacting police, might look at card transactions and will be hoping to high heaven that nothing else goes wrong. Oh it's pay day but I'm not allowed to buy anything, in particular craft things as I have to save up for sleepers - Meh!! Mikes home though and that's a bonus. That blinking star wars toy has arrived safely - another bonus - no moany child to contend with.
Take care I'm off to sniff the Pimms bottle xx
