    That's so good to hear!! Colleagues and Supervisors can make or break a job so it's wonderful to hear they're a nice lot you can work with! Sounds like it's going to be an enjoyable one and not too far away either! Kudos to you!!

    Thank you Diane! I'm in love with this one....he's just so masculine and gorgeous!

    He's not new but when I did have him up last time, which wasn't that long ago, it was only for a couple of days.....so I've been wanting him back!

    And the time is right now! ;)

    Thank you, it's true about having good supervisors, in my last job I have seen perfectly good people getting harassed and exploited by bad supervisors, these supervisors knew the line, touched it but never crossed it, so the good worker got stressed but could not complain. I was dreading not ending up with a bad boss

    Those types are really the worse.....they know what they're doing is wrong but are so very careful not to cross that line....just rotten people all round too. Then some supervisors are just hopeless at the job.

    Such a shame all round......good workers are never able to flourish and ultimately it's the business which suffers.

    I've worked in some disgusting places over the years , it has to be said that industrial and retail environments hit the mark for being the worst two places to work .

    I've put up with egotistical junior wannabe's , power trip maniacs and a whole host of creeps including vile management , and out of the two I've found retail tops them all .

    People can have the blinkers on when it comes to their perception of how workers are treated but you can only really experience it first hand & I have seem dirty tactics , verbal abuse , constructive dismissals , psychological abuse , I could go on . If there's anything to take from exposure to this is your own refusal to accept it furthermore from future potential employers, albeit it easier said than done , although for me this history has unfortunately hardened me too much , I now find working for others exceptionally difficult , I hear stories and loads of friends moan about how they're treated , I don't miss it , in fact I hate it when people are abused as is very much the case these days , & there's a catch too , either "put up with the abuse" or " get lost " .

    I chose to leave before things got worse. And with my pride intact . Morals and self respect mean a lot to me as does pride , unfortunately employers exploit employees for their own selfish gains which interestingly enough comes under psychopathic disorders !!!!!!!!!

    It is common to hear that the hardest workers and those that contribute more seem always to be at loggerheads with so called senior positioned members who really haven't a clue about the ground workers , I'd worked in one trade for over 17 years and was regularly met by new blood who'd not got the faintest idea yet they held superior roles in the company ! It's quite shocking ! And despairing !

    One things for sure , you learn a lot in a short time , it doesn't take long to fathom a companies staff and their idiocies ..!
