Am shock not sure what to make of it??

That poor girl having it publicised by her boss around the entire office (and TV) that she has been dumped.

I didn't like seeing Hayley get upset but I think nev comes across as someone who's trying too hard to be 'down with the kids', like an embarrassing dad. I know the person who does the voice over. She's seen them all - obv- and she said that nev gets a lot worse.

I know someone who worked there. I have heard bad, bad things.

Just watching this now - missed at weeks.

Love the accent!

Dwayne's hands are so tiny

My ds2 says he has a lenient supervisor, and no way would this behaviour be accepted. Put on for the cameras and very lax management according to him. He's only 18, first job grin

KenDoddsDadsDog Tue 11-Jun-13 21:23:18

Does he work there ?
It's like no call centre I've ever seen in a 16 year career.

I'm cringing....the while thing s nauseating....that poor George

Oxen Tue 11-Jun-13 21:29:58

I like it.
It's all very lighthearted and seems fun.
Just a load of mates getting a job done.
Passes the day really.
No real harm done.

I'd date George

morethanpotatoprints Tue 11-Jun-13 21:31:24

No, he doesn't work in that one and has only been there about 6 weeks, that's why I was grin at his comments.
But I'm glad somebody with a long career has verified this. We just laughed at ds2, we're a bit tight really smile

Nev is dreadful, but I can't stop looking at it.

KenDoddsDadsDog Tue 11-Jun-13 21:39:41

Poor George

2cats2many Tue 11-Jun-13 22:24:51

God, that was awful. I bet Nev is a total perv to all those women when the camera is turned off. And a dreadful bully too. You can just see it.

And poor George! He was being totally humiliated in front of everyone! Just dreadul. I feel dirty for watching it. I shan't be switching on again.

Nev is a colossal twat.

I would rather shovel coal in hell than work in that call centre.

Well I'm hooked! Have been recording it and watched it at the weekend. Not entirely sure I'd want to work there mind, but can see the fun for the younger ones.

And I love Nev blush. There's something of the DCI Hunt's about him that gets me grinning <saddo emoticon required> but then maybe I've been single for too long and had the wine goggles on!

KenDoddsDadsDog Mon 17-Jun-13 21:11:24

He is a bit DCI Hunt !

KenDoddsDadsDog Tue 18-Jun-13 21:31:16

Did anyone see that disciplinary ? I'm horrified.

TheEarlOf Sat 22-Jun-13 23:24:45

Omg am I being really dumb or is it real? I thought it was like the office... That it was a set and actors

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 23-Jun-13 06:11:10

It's real !

MollyBerry Tue 25-Jun-13 21:21:27

I'm just watching this now. What's a 'sub'? Nev was talking about how they spend their wages on tattoos then ask for a sub. Is it just subsidising their tattoos. As in they're just asking for money?!

MollyBerry Tue 25-Jun-13 21:21:52

Plus those muscles on the man is freaky large!

Passthesaltdear Tue 25-Jun-13 21:23:59

Corey is freaking me outgrin stupid stupid stupidshock

ImTooHecsyForYourParty Tue 25-Jun-13 21:25:29

It's not real is it?

I haven't watched it but I saw trailers for it and I simply assumed it was a pisstake 'comedy' show, like that dreadful office thing.

MrsCampbellBlack Tue 25-Jun-13 21:27:08

It is real. I watched 2 episodes and thought it was a spoof too.

How does he not have millions of industrial tribunals?

ImTooHecsyForYourParty Tue 25-Jun-13 21:34:24

No WAY?!

I refuse to believe anyone can actually be that much of a tosspot.

I mean, the clip showed a room full of fools and that boss, well, what an utter prat!

At least tell me he's single. I can't bear to think that someone is actually hooked up with that!
