I work in a housewares shop and I hate it!

For a start the males are on 30p an hour more than the females.

Today has really taken the biscuit. We have bloody rats in the shop. My boss being the tight sod he is hasn't called anyone to deal with it. Instead he's sent me armed with a stick and a spade to sort it out.

I have found (amongst stock) 3 dead mice and a dead rat.

Aibu if I tell my boss to go and fuck himself? I'm terrified of rats and mice!

The men are paid more than the women?!

Crazyrabbitlady Tue 15-Sep-15 13:17:35

Yep! 30p an hour more. I'm leaving as soon as possible.

The boss gets round it by giving them stupid titles even though we all do the exact same job. It pisses me off.

All pay is supposed to be confidential but some of the staff have been talking to one another.

Make him mouse and rat pie for lunch?

If you were going to stay there, I would strongly suggest joining a union and getting them to sort this out.

Phone environmental health or the council or something, say you are s concerned customer who saw a rat.

Message the name of the shop, (and town), lots of "customers" will phone up having seen mice and rats for you.

Rat him out to environmental health

Call the union. If you aren't in one then you are daft.

Leave. Leave now.

I couldn't work in those conditions.

Call the local newspaper, they love this sort of thing.
