  1. July?? I thought it was announced it was being extended until October?? But, given the footage of all the lemmings flocking to the coast, inevitably the R number will rise dramatically and come autumn the pandemic will probably shift up a gear.....way to go selfish furlougher’s you all have some fun, god knows you’re getting paid enough and when the pandemic comes surging back (as it will no doubt do now) we will all know exactly who to point the finger at. yes, bitter much
  2. Hang on, it’s not just me! I’m turning up for work everyday along with other work colleagues - everyone (not just me) is so angry and bitter it’s getting everybody down. I come home after work tired and stressed then see all the txts and SM alerts of furloughed colleagues doing what they please. Now lock down is lifted I’m getting alerts and selfies from days out!! FFS Ifs all well and good posters saying suck it up - I’d like to see the boot on the other foot.....!!
  3. It’s not the bosses that are gloating!! I earn nothing like £2.5k a month. I work full time. Very few where I work are pulling that each month.
  4. That is not gonna happen most of those furloughed have been there donkeys years - it would cost the company a fortune in redundancies- by comparison I’d hazard a guess half of those called back in have been there less than 3-4 yrs
  5. I mean I’m only 20% better off as colleagues are getting 80% For doing diddly squat. BUT, factor in a months worth of fuel, pack up lunch I’m probably coming away with the same as colleagues. Anger doesn’t even touch it. The atmosphere at work is horrific.
  6. I’m sure I’m not alone judging by the amount of anger at my workplace my employer brought half the staff back in after 4wks. The other half are still furloughed. It is causing a huge amount of animosity as those of us who have been back now 4 weeks are expected to not only do our F/T job, but also tackle the work of colleagues who are furloughed ....and for what?? 20% pay !! As furloughed colleagues are receiving 80% for sitting at home in the sun. The atmosphere is awful, everyone is extremely bitter and resentful and snapping at everyone else Bosses couldn’t care less as they are not having to pay furloughed staff nor find money to cover any redundancies - which incidentally has already been said to those of us working that it doesn’t guarantee our jobs overs colleagues that are furloughed. So sick of the gloating texts and Facebook happy snaps. The level of hatred for furloughed work colleagues is growing by the day. My partner has worked from home throughout the lockdown. She is angry at others strolling around outside. i think it would have been much much fairer if all those who have received furlough payment were given a different tax code until it is paid back - I don’t see why people that are forced to work should also be forced to contribute to the cost of furloughed workers In future tax rises. They got the free cash - they should pay it back. Its sending me insane. I am full of sheer rage that I will be expected to pay towards others as they sit laughing at home. I’m more than happy to pay back the money that I received - that’s fair. It is not fair I’m funding others. We were told today that certain colleagues will not be expected back in until July at the earliest!!
  7. Not much else to add to this thread. most has been repeated over and over. Personally I'm more aghast with china. Their stupidity has claimed the lives of over 100,000 people and infected 1.5m. It was the same nation that created the SARS virus in 2002. Yet, Have we had heard any kind of apology? No, All we've been fed is that they are now technically in the clear and with a death count of sub 4K. Why isn't the worlds media waging war on china. The blunt truth is that nation has done unfathomable damage to global economics and yet not a single bad word has been said ...apart from Trump. Whilst I wont throw out my china made stuff, I will try to avoid buying "china made" in future. I am disgusted with them.
  8. Personally, I’m disgusted that China hasn’t made a grovelling public apology. Never mind, I will bet that those who lost loved ones will think twice before buying “made in China” stuff again. I will and yes, I’ll pay more or go without. I quite honestly couldn’t care less about China . oh, and just to add I showed my 12yr old son you tube footage of China’s meat markets...I’m please to say he has changed his views too.
  9. Don’t know about traffic cones, but I read someone can actually park on your drive and there is nothing illegal. You cannot threaten, assault or damage or even block them in!
  10. Actually everyone returns trolleys for their £1, if we were able to release the trolley from the other end as people were returning theirs . Someone could use one of those pump pressure sprayers and continually disinfect every trolley returned. Its a one man/woman job per shift. Seriously, think about it...we have closed all mass gatherings. Yet supermarkets are probably busier than pubs/cafes etc when they were open. Children in child seats on trolleys grab the handle - do they not then become carriers??
  11. Why supermarkets are not disinfecting shopping trolleys witnessed someone today sneeze into their hand (natural reaction) then carried on pushing the trolly....! maybe it’s just me, but why isn’t there someone disinfecting shopping basket and trolley handles. It seems pretty logical as a perfect way to spread germs. next user, grabs trolley, touches face, cups hand to catch sneeze... and so the cycle begins.
  12. We use the expensive one (Vax ultra) rather than the Vax AAA. It does actually seem to do a better job cleaning I picked up several bottles a year ago from homebase as they had them on offer. RE- Vax, I'll never loan mine out again. We vowed we wouldn't but how do you say no to friends. Twice mines been returned damaged. It's currently not working. NEVER EVER LOAN YOUR VAX
  13. They would be very last option I've never really ever been satisfied by any tradesmen we've used. We never ever barter the quote as that would give them reason to do less than needed. But it's pretty clear that when your back is turned they will cut every corner...and still charge you. I want a plumber to come in and drain the entire system and fit new top quality isolating valves throughout, rather than the cheap junk they always fit. But I know they will screw me. So I live in hope of winning the lottery and being able to afford British Gas to do it...sigh
  14. OMG I have heard so many stories of underhand practices. I doubt discussing them here would achieve much. I'm sure today it is much much harder. But 2-3 decades ago it was rife....RIFE!! One story involves council property purchase (business premises) after bent council officials took bribes to reveal offers tended and the bidder missed out.....yes, it's true...the ombudsman was brought in and proved it so. This I heard so cannot confirm but sounds possible - Former school house that was for sale 30+yrs ago with a huge list of stipulations that put everyone off buying....council official purchased it and the stipulations were removed - lol Everyone seems to know of something dodgy - otherwise why would the general public be so cynical and suspicious towards them.
  15. As others have posted. They (scc) never ever improve on things. The Parkhill flats multicolour scheme is an absolute eyesore. That could have looked so smart with grey panels. Instead it looks horrific. cheap and dowdy. No doubt fat wedges of the £1,5bn will magically disappear. Their (very) limited imagination was laid bare to see when the filled in the "Hole in the Road" that could have been a amazing centre piece. Typical public town hall mindset - what can "they" get out of it. Anyway. not to worry I never set foot in Sheffield centre these days...despite living in Sheffield my whole life.
