54 hours a week

Post by pigeon »

I have just had this handed down to me from my line manager at work yesterday, the conversation went as follows.

Manager
"We have decided as a department that you are our best porter, so with this amount of productivity, for the next 4 weeks, i am going to up your contract from 31.30 hours a week to 54 hours a week" Me "Huh?", Manager if within the next 4 weeks we decided you can cope with this,this will be your new contract ...any questions?"

Me "Just a couple, i noticed you put me into from 7.30am to 4pm on Saturdays, hows this going to work for next Month when i am at Charlton Athletic at 3pm?"

Manager "Hmm reasonable question that err my answer to that will be Fuck Charlton Athletic"

Me "What About The Stranglers?"

Manager "There not still going surley, Didn't they do Golden Brown?"

me "Yeah"

Manager "Anyway i haven't got the time to talk about rubbish football clubs in South East London, we will talk about that more near the time, i might let you finish at 2pm"

Me "Oh thank you very much"

Manager "Now go and collect those Trollies, be off with you".

anything over 40 hours per week is overtime and can't be enforced. tell yer boss to go fuck himself/herself....they won't have a leg to stand on. overtime on a Saturday is time and a half....sunday o/t is double time.....them are the rules...asda or otherwise.
