Ah, ok!

I don't know what you do but at my work we have a lone working policy - maybe check and see if your work has one and if not implement one!

Cheekychops84 Wed 10-Oct-12 19:44:56

I get scared and got no one to come with me

GotMyGoat Wed 10-Oct-12 19:45:36

no, yanbu. Dark+being alone=scary.

have your work have done a risk assessment for this?

Cheekychops84 Wed 10-Oct-12 19:46:16

I dont think so it's just cleaning

scurryfunge Wed 10-Oct-12 19:47:34

Is it a well lit car park? It's not that late. I do lots of lone stuff in the dark at work but people tend to know where I am. What worries you specifically?

Sorry but grin at finding someone in the Campari!!!

Cheekychops84 Wed 10-Oct-12 19:49:57

Cheekychops84 Wed 10-Oct-12 19:51:23

Can you ask that someone checks your welfare at regular intervals?

GoSakuramachi Wed 10-Oct-12 19:54:58

Why would you be scared? Do you otherwise not leave your house alone after dark?

Yanbu to be scared.
I work nights alone and when I have to go out (technical problem, checking on accesses, fetching the paper etc) I am often a bit jittery.

Take a big heavy torch, make sure someone knows where you are, phone in pocket, keys to hand to make you feel safer.

Well being alone in a building which is totally empty is rather creepy

Shutupanddrive Wed 10-Oct-12 21:06:31

What is the job? Are you in car park the whole time or is that just on the way in/out?

GoSakuramachi Wed 10-Oct-12 21:06:47

Why? I'm alone in my house, its not creepy.

OHforDUCKScake Wed 10-Oct-12 21:15:10

How is being alone in your home comparible to being on your own in a car park?

Where are you most likely to get mugged?

No locked doors to get behind in a car park.

What a daft and patronising comparison.

I work alone all night in a creepy building. I look after elderly people with mental health problems. It is an old building so there are lots of spooky noises, also occasionally one of the oldies will get up and wander around.

I often get scared but I do know that the building is secure.

Going out to a dark campari car park would frighten me, and I do not think that is unreasonable.

GoSakuramachi Wed 10-Oct-12 21:21:54

Are you likely to get mugged inside a building where you are alone?

It's not a daft and patronising comparison, you just didn't understand it. OP said being alone in a building was creepy. I'm alone in a building, saying its not creepy. Have you got that now? hmm

OHforDUCKScake Wed 10-Oct-12 21:29:18

Car park. Your warm secure home.

No comparison. You got that now? hmm

GoSakuramachi Wed 10-Oct-12 21:32:43

Oh dear lord, its painful. Look again.
