Should be chained to the job, not allowed time off for personal reasons and should pay us, the tax payers, for the privilege? That they should not be permitted lunch breaks and shouldn't be able to claim expenses?

Or am I being ever so slightly maybe possibly unreasonable in my expectation that they are robots?

Is this a reverse? grin

Yes, they should have their platinum plated pensions scrapped too. Feckless, lazy parasites. wink

TAAT about the the flip flop police I believe.

YANBU, DH is a public sector worker and smiled at work last week. Fucking smiled. When he got home I asked him what he thinks it is my taxes pay for and demanded a £20 refund from him. I don't get time to smile in my job, if I even think about smiling then I get my pay docked and rightly so, it's time the oublic sector fell in line. Life of bloody Riley that lot, they don't know they're born.

Not a TAAT unless you count all the hundreds of threads about public sector workers...

Yanbu. But only if you start with a trial period of five years for MPs.

ChuffinAda Sun 17-May-15 13:34:35

Ooh yes I forgot about the pensions. Those pesky people paying huge chunks of their salary and expecting a pay out.

As for smiling. He should be fired with immediate effect.

I used to be a public sector worker but I retired at age 14 and I get paid £7677 a week from my public sector pension. I sleep on a pile of hardworking tax payers and I wipe my bottom with their money.

Where's the flip flop thread?

I'm public sector and that sounds about how it is in the op tbh, lunch breaks are a pretty notional idea...

Fairy13 Sun 17-May-15 13:35:42

Don't forget we are employed by any member of the general public because they pay their taxes... Because of course I dont.

FiveGoMadInDorset Sun 17-May-15 13:35:47

I don't get a lunch break anyway

Bearfrills Sun 17-May-15 13:36:44

I convinced my DM that DH and I didn't pay full tax because it was the public sector version of an employee discount...

KneesOfTheBee Sun 17-May-15 13:36:48

I'm a public sector worker. I would be chained to my desk - if I had one.
grin

They should all be hung and quartered.
There, problem solved.

Pmsl, bearfrills. I genuinely once got bollocked for laughing at work. Apparently it looked too much like we were enjoying work and therefore not working hard enough. Expressing any sort of pleasure gives a bad impression.

Bearfrills Sun 17-May-15 13:39:30

But Pacific, what would the cost of this be? You're talking rope, blades, some sort of queuing system. Unless we get them to pay for it themselves. DH has been buying his own stationary and computer spare parts for years, I'm sure he could stretch to some rope and an axe.

ghostyslovesheep Sun 17-May-15 13:40:15

hahahaha yes KneesOfTheBees all these people with DESKS! has no one heard of 'LEAN' and 'AGILE WORKING' aka sit in your car in Maccies car park using your phone wink

PacificDogwood Sun 17-May-15 13:40:23

Yes, good point - they could maybe just all jump off a bridge, or something?

HoldenCaulfield80 Sun 17-May-15 13:41:17

I'm a public sector worker so I pay my own wages. I make myself sick.

PacificDogwood Sun 17-May-15 13:41:23

Fun at work?!
They should pay for having something to laugh about. Outrageious!

RafaIsTheKingOfClay Sun 17-May-15 13:44:07

Don't give my boss ideas, Pacific. If she could charge us for coming into work I'm sure she would.

We can't charge the patients, why not charge the staff.

That would surely involve them building bridges?

Send them off cliffs. Natural resource and free.
