The water supply has gone off for the third time in as many months.

Ever since they started connecting the supply to a massive new estate they are building the supply keeps failing.

I was going to post half the story sometime ago but the situation is getting worst and worst.

To put it nicely my uselss bloody shit bag of a manager just fucked up once again. This had a huge knocked on effect of extra work for me and it's going to take me aprox three weeks to sort out. I'm doing it but I can't do 300% per day but I am doing like 120%. However this get better because my manager haven't corrected his mistake and everything I manage to sort out get undone because he still haven't corrected his massive mistake.

The other day he called me over and start complaining why I still got a lot to do. I gave him valid answers and in return he throw more questions at me. When I answered those he contridict his previous statements by issuing more questions. All he was doing is singling people out and just being an utter cunt towards them, which is what he's doing to me. So I got up in a professional manner, told him I'm NOT tolerating his behaviour and I'm going back to sort out his mistakes. Afterward he approached me several times in front of the other colleagues and instructured me to have follow him for a private chat. Instead I carried on with my work and ignored him.

I'm not having private chat with him over his work related behaviour and how he treat other people. All the core workers on my departments are far superior to him in everyway from people skills, managing and productivity. The last time I had a private chat he went into a violent rage and I simply worked out without giving abuse back. Afterward I was instructed to have a witness during these private chats to keep this lying sack of shit in check.

Ironically as I was leaving work, a co worker recieved a phone call from my manager and after he put the phone down said "One day someone is going to smack that bastard." So is that five people now wanting to punch him in the face?

The bad thing is how can I or other people act professionally if their manager doesn't. The people underneth can't act in a professional manner is the manager is underminning their work in an unprofessional manner. I was actually about to seek a transfer to a different department and raise awareness of another co worker's bullying. Instead I can't because once again my name been blacken.


C*NT!!!!!!!!

Compensation culture - my brother in law crashed his bicycle into the side of a van the other day (admittedly the van was turn across his lane, but he was wearing no hi-vis or lights, wasn't wearing a helmet and was undertaking stationary traffic at considerable speed) and broke a) his collarbone, b) the whole front end of the bike and c) the side of the van, and has decided that this means he can claim for loss of earnings and 'pain and suffering' from the van owner. Now, I completely understand people claiming compensation when there was nothing they could do to prevent an accident and truly need the money lost from being incapacitated, but from the way he has described it some of the fault was clearly my brother in law's. Even if he was entirely faultless, I raise an eyebrow at anyone claiming money for 'pain and suffering' when three days after the accident they were happily up at the crack of dawn to go and traipse around a car boot sale in a muddy field in order to buy computer games.

The fact that so many people think they are entitled to money just because there is a chance they could get some makes my blood boil. Quite frankly I feel sorry for the sodding van driver. Some people.

He could well end up having to pay an absolute fortune in costs if it gets as far as Court and he loses and has to pay costs. I have heard of such cases where someone is claiming 1500 and ends up having to pay over 30,000 in costs having lost the case.

It depends how far they go with this idea that the person in the vehicle is always to blame over the bicycle/motorbike. I'd imagine having a broken collarbone will help as well.

I'm not sure about this vague 'pain and suffering' thing either. I'd to claim after a car crash (back damage I still have) but the calculation I did for that was purely on the basis of things I'd had to buy/change as a result of the more immediate problems with some porjections from the injury.

It does sound as if he's kind of admitting in private that the other driver isn't strictly to blame, and that's pretty crap IMO.

This is the thing - I have absolutely no issue with people who are genuinely faultless and genuinely in need of the money claiming compensation, but it really angers me the idea of "I've had an accident - hooray I can get money!" It's just plan money grabbing; within hours of the accident he was gloating over something he'd read which said he could claim lost earnings at minimum wage. The gloating was due to the fact that he works as an apprentice body piercer, therefore earning less than minimum wage, and he was excited that he make money through claiming for more than he would actually be losing. Horrible behaviour IMO.

Seriously? I knew court costs were high but having never been to court myself, I had no idea they were THAT high.

It depends on how confident the opposition is that they will win and if they are very confident then insurance companies (who would be the one who foot the bill and the respondent is adamant they are not at fault) will often go all out to prove their case which can lead to a massive bill. If the person who made the claim is found to have a case with little validity be it that the other party has witnesses or a recording of what they were doing at the time and it has reached a point of a court hearing before a circuit judge who decides against the applicant it can be a massive bill. Usually you would be looking at a few thousand but I have seen one case where it went up to 30,000 for a very small claim of less than 2,000. The vehicle being always to blame is not always the case now following the increase of vehicles with recording equipment on board and a greater awareness that all road users can be bad no matter what their mode of transport.

Earlier on I was kinda sorta threatened by my ridiculously, obscenely drunk neighbour. The reason? I was cutting the grass, at the ungodly time of 6 in the evening. How dare I! He said something along the lines of 'Don't be doing that again, or else I'll..' and then sort of trailed off into a drunken slur. He then asked me where I was from and proceeded to tell me he was from East Belfast in a threatening-ish way ("...so you know, east Belfast. Keep that in mind.").

I'm half angry, half scared. Angry for the obvious reasons, him being a cunt. Scared, because my pregnant wife will shortly be home alone soon as she's dropping her work hours and only doing a three day week. I'm about to log it with the police just in case. He's just come back home with more drink. I'm not worried he'll do anything, he can barely walk right now and when he's sober he's fine, if a little belligerent. But it's just pissed me off royally.

A horrible scenario, mate. I had something similar a few years back, a mad drunken cunt in the flat downstairs from me who was sorta OK in the rare times when you caught him sober, but who then went on to drink huge amounts of alcohol and would shout abuse upwards into my flat...

But if you do anything about it, you'll be right in court the next day... I don't know what the fuck is wrong with the UK society nowadays when a cunt like the guy you described is protected by the law enforcement folks... and rest assured, he will be.

Sorry, I know this ain't helping and I wish you and your lady all the best... hope it doesn't escalate any further. You're not alone in this.

Bloody hell, what a twat. Hope it all comes to nothing.

My own brother (not the brother-in-law this time) just posted something on Facebook about how in his opinion (as a white, middle-class, never-had-a-job, still-living-at-home 27 year old) "Going on the basis of the way most rappers behave, the black person in American SHOULD be oppressed. "I pulled out my nine than I slapped mah bitch 'til she couldn't take it no more, gotta scratch that itch" I'd like to see more sane, middle-class Black Americans in the Media."



Social media: an excellent reminder of why I moved 150 miles away from these people.

I had a similar thing happen to me. I was clipping the hedge on a Saturday afternoon, which meant he couldn't hear the horse-racing. I seem to remember saying under my breath, come down here and say that while I've got these hedge clippers in my hand. But of course that meant him moving away from the TV. He never repeated that episode and has fucked off now,

I wouldn't worry, it was probably Cherryvalley or Belmont (for those not familiar with Belfast, these are the posh parts of the East of the city). Then again, I'm from East Belfast too, so next time you're cutting your grass I'll come down for moral support :) Alternatively, cut the grass at 8 in the morning instead
