    Default Now its my turn to start sweating

    So here I come to work this morning all in a good and happy mood.
    The day went well till about 30min ago.
    Boss called for a big meeting and say that all have to be their.
    So here we go thinking who's in shait or who did what.?

    So he starts with - times are tought now and that their are a few things changing.So we say ok we under stand the tought times yes, what is gonna change.?

    So he shocks us all, the word retrence comes out his mouth.!!!!!!!!ops:
    He will be telling the people next week who goes and who stays, so now im worried, because getting work these days is kark hard.And off course I only started here like 8 months ago.

    I can say that it is not a good feeling, and those off you who sits in the same boat, strongs man, my day has been farked up now, for good.

    Could hear the wify is also not happy (worried), my worry is what about my kido and wife.?They must eat and they need a roof over their heads, so maybe I will have to go the same route as some peeps in a week, sell all my rides and try make a living from the start.

    Just thought I would let you peeps know, so if im just missing you know that im gone and looking for another job, will keep you all update.

    I really need big prayers now.
    But as they say, every thing happens for a reason.

    Hey Swannie - dis nie lekker om te hoor nie. Sterkte. Dink aan jou en sal die groot baas daar bo n paar woorde drop om seker te maak jy kom ander kant uit beter as tevore!

    Esih! Swanie that is a Kark bit of news to be advised of on a friday....and the fact that you have now got to wait - to find out - really sucks..Hate the suspense...But if you are nervous then I always say prepare for the worst...Start getting your CV out there ASAP... and hopefully if you are one of the unlucky ones to be retrenched then "one door closes ...another will open"

    Thinking of you and your family and holding thumbs that you are one of the ones they decide to hold on to :wink:

    Swanie, there is nothing worse to have to hear! My brother is going through it at the moment too.


    I have labour law experience and if you need any advice regarding the procedure / substantive reasons for the retrenchment please let me know, I will be happy to assist!

    You are in our prayers!

    This is not good, I went through the same crap late last year. The only thing you can do is to keep your side clean, start looking for work and pray. You will get through this, it's one of life's speed bumps.

    Not lekker... but hang in there. They might opt to keep better staff and if it applies to you then you stand a good chance to stay on

    Wishing you well mate
    When in doubt, Gas It! It may not solve the problem, but it WILL end the suspense!

    Hello, sorry to hear of your intense stress, cannot be nice.
    May the very best of everything be part of your future and in this time of difficulty, may gentleness and kindness be part of your and your family's everyday.

    Best of luck.

    Soory to hear this. We will hear plenty of this due to the world wide economics. PM me your cv so that I can see wht we can do this end. We have many visitors coming from overseas that need to be looked after because thay are scared of SA. They still believe our toilets are outside and you could get mauled by a lion going for crap.
