A chance to get it off your chest
I deeply deeply resent having to go on strike to force you useless overpaid lazy HR and management types to do your jobs. But unlike you I have principles and a backbone so I will down tools with pleasure. I'll claw back the money at a later date of my choosing.
I lost any respect for you and withdrew goodwill years ago so you probably won't notice any difference in me when the work to rule starts.

Dear boos, when three members of staff plus on ex-staff member go out for dinner, have a couple if jugs if cocktails and a couple of bottles of wine, and round off the evening saying 'he's just a knobhead,' you should take a look at yourself. In seriousness there are three of us working in your team full time, and the other two have talked about handing in their notice. I don't realty want to stay once my contract is over, and every problem in our team can be traced back to you. The trouble is, you can be a nice guy and a good boss when you 're in the right mood. But we shouldn't have to creep around on egg shells watching your moods. FFS you're a psychiatrist so you'd think you'd have some people skills!
Email this morning. He'll take a 'dim view' of us if we don't go to his ex-PA's leaving do. Well I was going to go to her leaving do, even though I don't really want to, because I knew he'd take a dim view if we didn't. Except now he'll think I've only gone because he told me to!
The more I think about it the more annoyed I get. When someone leaves. if they want a leaving do, fine. But it should be up to each member of staff whether they want to go. And if a few of us don't want to go, maybe you should be asking why and what was wrong rather than taking a 'dim view' of us for not going. It's not even in work time.
You've just blown your runny nose... and now you're walking up to me to shake hands? Er No. I will go ahead with that formality, but only after you've washed the germs off.
Last week, you did not have a migrane, you had a headache.
Now, you do not have flu, you have a cold.
It seems to have passed you by that actually I am quite good at my job. My boss thinks so, the rest of my department thinks so, the senior managers think so.
So I will be passing up on your offer to show me how to use your spreadsheet. I know it is quite complicated but I'm used to working with things far more complicated than a spreadsheet.
You are right that it is 'more complicated than entering a few numbers' as you have to press a button too as it says that in the procedure. But I think your statement that 'I won't understand it without spending an hour being shown how to use it' was a slight exageration.

Don't go. Haven't you got a class/appointment/school play/headache/girls' night out/family funeral to deal with? I'm afraid I decided many years to opt out of the hypocrisy of going to the leaving do of anyone I didn't like or care for. No excuses, just don't go.
Yeah, f*ck that Catalin, there's no way I'd let myself be forced into going to an out of work event if I didn't want to. Not that you need to make up an excuse but I'm sure there must be something more important you have to do that evening...
Twits on the train, the open button is marked with a sign " press button and hold to open the doors", just follow the instructions and the doors will open.
Hmmm...this is not the first time I have been left out of the loop on something over the past few weeks. Dare I say it but communication around here is deteriorating quite rapidly as far as I can see.
I'm not saying that I'm suspicious, but a rucksack, a litre bottle of water and some contact lens solution are not items that I take when I go out for a jog.
Also, surviving by using some of the information that they taught you at Sandhurst ? Really? Which lesson is that covered in ?
Quite sure that drinking your own urine is never advised
All happy people should go to hell. Or at least stop waving their happiness in front of my face.
Dear teenage girls - yes the sun is shining - yes it's a nice day - but it's 8 degrees out! Defintitely not teeny tiny shorts weather!!
IT'S NOT THAT BLOODY DIFFICULT.I'm not your babysitter, so sort it out between yourselves.
You crossed the picket line and thereby broke the strike and undermined your colleagues. I don't know why you stay in the union, to be honest. You won't be hated or shunned or sent to Coventry. We're nice people. But one day you might need the union's backing and services. Whenever that happens I, your local rep, will be too busy to help.
Lady on the tube - leopard print panel on your dress and leopard print tights? Just no
PLEASE hurry up and phone me back. I know you are busy. I really do, and I appreciate as a GP you see hundreds of people in a week. But I really need this bloody script and I really really need a scan and the tests to see just what is wrong with my sodding back and hips. I want to run again.
