This page was originally set up for me to have a real chip on my shoulder about working in the Morrisons supermarket. Thank God I've left now, and most of the managers have been sacked for stealing. No regrets about leaving, bet miss the people. You think you have problems until you hear about other... Sign in to see full entry.
I have not written about work for some time. Mostly because I hate it, but also because there is little worth writing about. But we find out today, that someone on the personnel department, has tried to steal the entire bank details of the staff and sell them online. Not a modest achievement, but he...

Today was the closest I’ve ever come to actually walking out of a job. We all say it, but would it really give us any satisfaction if we did it? Daren Wells is one of the worse managers that this awful firm has ever given birth to. It had more than it’s far share of little bullies boys, but for some... Sign in to see full entry.
If I was to put the real name up this blog would rank uncomfortably high on the big G, so these silly names are to cover up the truth. I now find myself outside in the car park collecting trollies. Mainly because no one else will do it. I their own weird way they are grateful for me to do it, and it... Sign in to see full entry.
I have not written on the subject of the big M for some time. I have concentrated more on how to get out, than anything else, and don’t wish to dwell on it too often. But it is a source of amusement for some, so here goes. We have been running on only 3 permanent members of staff, and one part-timer... Sign in to see full entry.
When I think back, I try to picture the points that made me more angry than anything else. Bedlam makes me madder than anything else. The worsted one of late was the fall out with Flipper over stocking the pallets down the old Overs isle. When he said: “Maybe you didn’t hear me right” I knew he was... Sign in to see full entry.
When I think about my job and how much I hate it, I begin to think about ways to leave. And that’s where the problems start. Sure, the money is the biggest pull. But is there something more? Can I bring myself to leave? Do I revel in my own misery? Do I like the little world I’ve made for myself,... Sign in to see full entry.
Bedlam (the covert name I give to the supermarket where I work) has a standard it imposes on its workers. The ruse is, that it improves standards. And it is set by something call: The Mystery Shopper. This is of no value and we have no need of it. Like many ties of management levels, they could go,... Sign in to see full entry.
On Thursday, we have the JCC meeting. I can’t remember what it stands for, but it’s a workers council, which is supposed to voice the concerns of the workers to the management. In other words, it takes over from the old Union councils. Bedlam hates unions, as it hates its own workers, and the whole... Sign in to see full entry.
Here, at my workplace, I have to change the name of M******* to Bedlam in Stamford to throw people off the sent. The latest rubbish is Hello-Offer-Thank. The HOT principle. This was first thought up to get the staff to be a little nicer to the customers, but it has become a more sinister thing now.... Sign in to see full entry.
