Would You Like Another Ea Tale Of Woe Or Are You Bored ?

Recommended Posts

Are you sitting comfortably ?

oh dear.. i hope ive done the right thing ive been there for 5 years on and off. i work in an estate agents every other weekend.

i earn 80.00 for doing 9-4 sat and 10-4 sunday so bearly the minimum wage . i have to work bank holidays and even had to work easter sunday ... no extra for doing these.. i get no holiday entitlement..

ok so thats the back ground.

I work my socks off to get business through the door.. only to have it shoved in my face 2 weeks later..

the boss has taken hold of the purse strings and has added loads to make the office look good and paperwork to give to clients but thats as far as it goes.. once he has them on his books he doesnt seem to give a dam.

i got this woman to get a valuation with us and she came on the market... in the 2 weeks i have been off she has had nothing but crap from the full time staff.. wrong details posted out, viewing booked and cancelled but not told.. not once but twice!!! i had her come in yesterday calling me evry name under the sun teling me how crap the company is... i felt terrible..

this is just 1 very small thing of many that has happened this weekend.

his latest thing is i got a note in my messages to say that the squash that was in the kitchen (tescos cheap stuff) was for "customers only " WTF.. how tight can you get.

we get incentives for mortgage referals but im still waiing to get paid from august .....

we are not told about new things that have happened in the office and it seems we are expected to find out for ourselves what they are????

people are not getting phoned back to confirm things and then we get calls on saturday to ask whats going on... we have no clue as details have not been put on the computer so again making "us" the weekenders look really stupid..

i have been faithful to this company for 5 years and feel like the pee has been taken out of me for too long.

was i over reacting telling him to stuff it...

sorry this got long but i am so mad!!!

its out my system now lol

ive had worse.

once on the border in XXXXXX, we laid a whole train of nape and snake over the tree line where we saw movement one night, only to find it contained most of the rebels relatives who were trying to escape to XXXXXX the next morning. (needless to say they were not happy.)

Smooth running organisation with efficient management then?

Sounds as though the company is hitting the skids Terrified. Do you rely on this job for money?

Did I read somewhere that you are pregnant? (I apologise if it's not you) If so, are they trying to get out of maternity leave?

The post isn't about me, I thought the company sounded on it's last legs too though.

And yes i am pregnant, again :lol:

no.

they were simply horribly burned.

"trying desperately to keep on topic"...was that a 'special' snake?

and..back on topic..did those agents learn a salient lesson about burnt fingers?

Probably more cost efficient.

I love the smell of napalm in the afternoon (well, I've never really been a "morning person").

Unfortunately this simply sounds like UK plc to me. Poor management, penny-pinching, short-sightedness.

I wouldn't say EAs are any worse in this regard.

Interesting (?): applied for each passport a month ago (with photos... that last for 8 years...) Australia house sorts it return of post... still waiting for Liverpool.

Darn you could have used that baby bonus to buy a plasma, like everyone else does. Bummer. ;) I hope to have my own little dual citizen one day. 8 weeks old, how sweet (not that WAL is clucky or anything :rolleyes: )
