things that annoy you

Recommended Posts

 

3. Yeah nah. If both can't agree on a mutual level, Let the mole try her best to blame him. Also, With the "peice of shit", I've had a major stack in one of my work vehicles when I was a P Plater. I wrote the thing off. The company attempted to come at me with legal action AFTER I had resigned (I resigned x12 months after the accident to start a new job). I laughed and got in contact with the mob that serviced the car as I knew them on a business level; Nek Minut, Personal written letter from the boss of the autoshop saying the car was a POS, Everything was screwed on it yet the company didn't want to spend money fixing the safety issues, But moreso just "keep it going" was the bosses words. Saved me.

 

 

i was just referring to it from the insurance f**kwits point of view.

 

insurance companies are the worst f**kwits to deal with. only beaten by f**king banks.

 

that said spence. get your mits on the service records for the car and include them in your written statement, if your going to go down. go down in a blaze of glory haha

These letters are from the insurance companies and i have had 2 bossy / insulting phone calls today from them.. Practically told them what had happened at that their client is being a little bitch and wont give crucial details needed for both insurance companies to reach a verdict... The only damage to her cars was a little nick to her bumper from my number plate, apart from that my car looks better there ever (was only a small tap)

 

Yet the chick who hit me from behind is what made my back have a hissy fit and made the real damage.

 

Just sick of working for a company who is a bunch of girls on their rags. get paid the base rate yet get forced to do the job of people on twice my wadge whilist being off the site for 3/4 of the day. Just cant wait to finish the physio rehab / get back from japan and hopefully get a better job!

Actually, the most hilarious thing is that people get agitated and argue about sporting teams they don't play for, in sporting competitions they aren't part of, over sporting decisions for which they have no input and seemingly don't have any money riding on.

 

:lol: This.

 

It's the same with anything. Motorsport is the same with 'fans' getting the shits because the team they support hired a driver the 'fans' don't like, or switch manufacturers to a car the 'fans' don't driver, or alcohol sponsors to a bevvie the 'fans' don't. It's just stupidly petty.

 

True fans support their teams (etc) no matter what ;)

As for written warnings, Did you sign it? I've had too many written warnings in the past; I've learnt from the errors I've made yet the stupid warnings I got I still laugh about; They don't mean shit. Cop it on the chin (Which is expected, You did have a stack whether it was your fault or not), The company has a policy to deal with these things. Its just a slap on the wrist. I could go on for days about how many times I've been pulled into the office in front of the big bosses ph34r.png

 

This is very true. You are not required to sign a bogus written warning, and most times they only push for you to sign it because it's bogus and think that by signing it, you're making it legit.

 

SpotMan, please understand that unreasonable or illegal written warnings can and will be rejected in courts, along with any other signed contractural T&C or employment agreement that is in conflict with employment legislation. Although my old man is the expert in this field (I just hear a lot about the system from him), I would very much doubt that a written warning for a P5 'at-fault by technicality' car accident would be met by anything more than laughter in an Unfair Dismissals court.

Interesting... Basically had a meeting with them, if it goes over 3k worth of damage its a formal written letter / another meeting. If its under 3k I just have to sign a form saying I was driving 'dangerously' for the conditions and that it could remain in a writen warning....

 

So basically I'm fine, just had some big wigs flaming down my throat for 45mins while I had to try AMD explain myself haha.

 

As for the bitch that wouldn't give me any details.. I just called her up said it how it was 'said the call was being recorded for her safety reasons' and she opened up haha, Indian towel heads keep calling me trying to make me admit to shit that never happened so abusing them is fun.

That absolutely reeks of a bait-and-switch, in which your employer promises you "no consequences if you sign on the line", but then later tries to bill you for the full financial cost, for driving in a manner that breaches contract. Personally, I would not sign a single document that states that you were "driving dangerously", or anything to that effect. Personally I would not sign any questionable written warnings either, on the basis that I don't agree with them.

 

Call Fair Work Australia (Ph: 13 13 94, Open: 8am - 5.30pm Monday to Friday). There are different laws for businesses with under 15 employees to those with 15+, however I gather the warning system is much the same, and FWA state that Written Warnings don't have to be signed by the employee. I would also demand [from your work] a copy of all the documentation you have signed pertaining to the use of company cars, then send that to Fair Work Australia for comment on its legality in relation to warnings by your employer.

 

I'll stop there in relation to giving further advice, but please be aware that many employers aren't aware of the relative legality of their disciplinary actions, but rely on the employees being too young/ignorant/scared/etc to stand their ground.

Hah... Interesting, very interesting. Personally ok don't give a f**k anymore, I just re read my contract to them and pointed out bit I will stop doing as its not in my contract.. I don't see myself having this job for much longer. Pretty Much as soon as my back gets better I'm getting out of this dead end job.

Er Your kidding right?

 

Spencer, If you sign a damn thing I'll f**king slap you. Signing a document to say you were "At fault" is far from being fair; Nor is it needed in any circumstance. At the end of the day, The insurance companies will pay their dues and both cars will be fixed; What you don't know is the insurance companies will go through a number of different crash repairers for qoutes and literally pick any of them. For reference, I grazed a car in a work car, What i beleived to be roughly $800 damage was well over $4000; Where the $4000 damage was I will never know. Insurance companies are f**ked and so are crash repairers.

 

My point, Don't sign a damn thing saying you were at fault; That can not be determined by your company nor should they use you as a Scapegoat and put it on paper. Thats technically defimation of character in my books, And borderline blackmail. Don't f**king do it. No matter what, They can't make you sign it nor can they fire you. Thats a joke, And I thought I'd be done over previously.

 

Pmod raises a good point that they may cite you later on for costs; I have seen this happen before, And its actually not that rare within large scale companies either. Your employer, As a whole, Has NO right to make you admit you were driving dangerously. And again, Pmod with the brillance; Call work safe at lunch if you don't beleive us or need some guidance. They are a godsend when it comes to the finer points and can give you a lot of good info.

 

In other news....

 

-f**king sick of that JB Hifi bullshit banner at the top of the page. I'm ready to neck myself;.

 

-Theres merely not enough time after work to spend playing GTA5 -_- its 1:33, Im lucky tomorrow to get a sleep in cos works being nice for a change and all I want to do it keep playing -_-

Please do yourself a favour, invest 30 minutes and call Fair Work Australia, as both Slippery and I have suggested. The legal term for this situation is that you signed the document under duress. I've put links to the definition of this term below, but essentially it's very similar to blackmail as Slippery said, and means that you have been manipulated into signing a document you would not normally opt to sign.

 

If you contact FWA now, at the very least it will create records in their system that might help you in future legal challenges (should your employer try to shaft you), which is much more compelling than your personal anecdote.

Wow Spencer, just wow. Get some legal advice dude, they're attempting to cover themselves from a potential comp claim - back injury from a car crash due to a poorly maintained vehicle that doesn't meet their own company requirements and policies - and could screw you over in the process because you've admitted liability for the accident...

 

Get a copy of their policies regarding company vehicles standards, the service history book of your work car, etc and bloody protect yourself man!

All i signed to is that yes, my vehicle made contact with the car infront, no I don't thinking I'm 100% at fault and that the vehicle needs a full roadworthy done as I don't believe that its road worthy due to issues not being fixed.

 

Had to get work cover to check me out the day after and they said I was fine... But now my back at it previous injury is now flaring up, so I doubt i can claim any of my medical expenses on work cover now...

 

Fingers crossed the damage is under 3k so I just get left alone... When its goes over 3k then I need to worry.

Cover yourself now dude. I know exactly how you feel (workplace back injury, dragging out for 8 months). Beauracracy is a loat of shit. One random specialist I saw (who told me "no, you don't need surgery") wrote a letter to the insurer saying I'm 100% recovered and have agreed to return to full time duties. The insurer called me and told me I have to go get my final certificate. I gave up, didn't do anything related to compo paperwork for 6 weeks. Eventually went and saw my GP, and she said that she couldn't argue against the random specialist, and the best that she could do was write the final certificate with an opt out clause (any sign of pain/symptoms, to stop work and return to the GP immediately). I still do have back pain, and limited functionality. And according to the system, I'm 100% recovered. Biggest load of shit...

 

I'm now in a very iffy situation where I'm expected to be able to resume my normal life, and any flare up could potentially be my fault/problem/deal with it. Haven't had to pay for anything yet, but I don't see that being too far off.

TL;DR. It's shit, but not doing anything only makes it worse for you

Catastrophic back failure.

 

I should see if my housemate can get you some form of inroads into an IT service desk job out our way, as he seems to have made quite a few contacts lately.

People are fat because there are so many cop outs it's easy to.... Being fat is not a disorder and I will never believe the bullshit of science meaning you can't loose weight.

 

I remember on the news they had these 3 people huge people, said they couldn't loose weight because of a genetic disorder or some shit: it's called laziness

The undeniable fact is, if the world fell to bits tomorrow and there was no longer any food available for anybody, fat people will die of hunger with the rest of us, just not as fast.

And before they die, they will be skinny.

 

If they stop eating, they will lose weight.

celebrities like magda szubanski and oprah getting paid a shit tone of money to lose a mediocre amount of weight and bringing out a check out my new body article when there still fat, its really setting peoples goals pretty low, but i guess if everyone was properly motivated weight watchers wouldn't have a market

 

oh and the whole love who you are love your shape teaching people its alright to be plus size its wrong its unhealthy and it puts a strain on the community in many different way, it also gives fat chicks the confidence to go out in almost nothing

If you're working out for fat reduction or bodybuilding, then yeah, Maccas is highly counterproductive. If you're training for strength/flexibility/fitness, then although Maccas isn't ideal as a post-workout meal (that and I hate it), it's really not a big a deal if people do this every now and then.
