blatz514: The Stealth Hippopotamus: Dixon Cider: They said it was stress related to work.. not a bad back. Why was he fired again?If you can take the stress of wrestling a shark you think an office job is going to mess you up? I've got to call bs too.I'm guessing he doesn't wrastle sharks every day. A one time event could have been awesome!
CheekyMonkey: Dixon Cider: They said it was stress related to work.. not a bad back. Why was he fired again?If working for the charity is so stressful to you that you need several months of sick leave, then I submit that you aren't fit for the job.
kvinesknows: DeathCipris: One, I call BS on this. He was on vacation, albeit not my first choice for a "stress-free environment" what with all the poisonous animals and things that want to kill me there. I consider taking a vacation to be pretty high up on the stress reducing activities list.Two, what was he supposed to do? Just let the shark eat the child? While this would have been infinitely more entertaining, it wouldn't have boded well for the child.Three...FTA: "two month holiday in Australia."TWO MONTHS?!? Did he blow ALL of his sick leave for 8 years? Or is this SOP to get 8 weeks of sick leave per year in Britain? Come one, 2 months is excessive. That's like farking short-term disability time-frame...and people think Americans are lazy.umm.. stress leave is usually somewhere in the 1 to 2 month range. Odd though that a doctor would give them BOTH a two month leave.
SJKebab: CheekyMonkey: Dixon Cider: They said it was stress related to work.. not a bad back. Why was he fired again?If working for the charity is so stressful to you that you need several months of sick leave, then I submit that you aren't fit for the job.10 years on the job doesn't warrant a 2 month vacation? Oh right, you're probably American, where dying on the job is considered a decent-enough retirement package.Sorry mate, but those of us in the rest of the world consider work to be a means to an end, not the end in and of itself. He may work for a charity, but that doesn't mean he works for free.I'm going to go ahead and make the assumption that you think all holidays are wasted time that could be better spent serving some rich fark who isn't even remotely aware of your existence.Good for you. Maybe after a few years, you might earn 2/3rds of our minimum wage.
planes: No, it was lying to your employer and getting caught that cost you your job, you nitwit.
