This is a thread for those people who do not need to hide in internet forums. Examples please of times when people have actually found their spines in the 'real' world!
Really! It was awesomely epic.
I complained quite vociferously about summat yesterday and ended up saving us quite a lot of money.
I'm not backward in coming forward anyway and if summat needs saying I'll say it
Yeah right !!
I like a good row anyway - and people who bullshit me will feel the rough end of my tongue
I think I'm quite diplomatic really.

Once told my boss he was a spineless bastard who only made decisions that protected himself and he didn't give a toss about his staff who he would happily feed to the sharks if it meant he could get a lifeboat.
Not longer after I got a move to a new department
But it was so worth it and he still a spineless bastard
I've got an interesting one coming up, I've just taken over as Chair of governors and there are a few lazy feckers who don't come to meetings, don't do any work and frankly, are just a waste of time and space.
Have been wondering recently how to break it to them gently.

Isn't it in the constitution (or whatever documentation) that if they don't attend for a period of time (I think it's 6 months but I could be wrong)
you can get rid of them
Yep, checked that one out already Unfortunately, they have attended enough meetings within the timeframe to disqualify that.
So I'll just have to speak my mind then

Yup, I think you should lay your cards on the table. Our governing body (I'm Vice Chair) is very much that everyone pulls their weight, there is so much to do at the moment that dead weights won't be tolerated.
And luckily we haven't got any, we've got a very good governing body and an excellent clerk.
So yeah I think you're right to be straight, set your stall out from the outset
*rubbing hands in glee at the prospect*
Probably why they asked me to do job, everybody else is too polite and pussyfoots around subject! Can't wait until they complain that they don't have the time. . .
