Thats how it is every where I have worked , you get pulled aside told to buck up or you will be fucked off, And thats what happens.
I run a small team mostly made up of agency blokes so its forever changing . I aint ever had to chuck fucks into anyone or go to my gaffer and say so and so aint pulling his weight . I just tell em straight first day how it all works and that their job is to make sure I dont get a bollocking , I have had lads who have left years ago and still keep in touch with me . One of me lads owns a Restraunt in Naples now and he owned a couple over here he was an ex pro played for Millwall he was just passing through really just wanted cash flow good grafter. He was as firey as fuck but me and him never had a cross word. . Day he left he said I was the best gaffer he had ever had and hes always asking me over his place. I treat all the lads with respect and friendliness and stick up for em when upstairs come the ****. They think agency blokes are all shit and I sometimes have to tell em in my own way they are blokes who want to earn a living like every fucker else. Man management is the hardest job there is because of personalities .
