…. fools ….


   Work happened. That is about the only kind thing I can say about it. I really struggle sometimes to cope with the incompetence of some people. I do not have a problem with those who find things difficult, but know it. No the ones that are the problem, are the ones that think they are intelligent. The other problem is the arrogance of some people. those who are where they are, because they have walked over others. You know the type I mean, those that are so far up their bosses backside, that they can see daylight !!! We all have colleagues like that, don’t we !!! Rant over !!!

   Youngest seems to be having a good (?) time. His support worker rang tonight, to let us know how he is getting on, and everything seems to be going quite well.

   I’m starting to get quite a significant amount of junk mail. Insurance mainly. I’m usually quite careful when I fill forms in, to ensure that my name is not added any ‘3rd party’ contacts. I can only imagine that the rubbish I’m getting stems from when I used the comparison web-sites for my car insurance.

Colleagues … what to do with them ?


I have to say, that possibly one of the downsides of working for a Local Authority, is that getting rid of ‘dead wood’ is damn near impossible. People can be totally incompetent, and they seem to be untouchable. It’s everyone elses fault that they are useless. It is all put down to ‘a training issue’ and management has not trained them properly. Well that is the case sometimes, but when some takes a shortcut to allegedly save time, after being told not to, then that is not a training issue. That is a disciplinary issue !!!!

The council is looking to save money by cutting back on recruitment. Better way …. sack the crap and employ quality staff.
