E-mail from HMRC. You owe us 80p! Payup or else. It must cost them more than that just to process the payment!

Send them a cheque and cost them more.

They don't usually bother with amounts less than £1 or rather they round down for your costs and up for your benefits.

Very sensible suggestion! So that would cost me more in postage and an envelope.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

We have just had a phone call from my tearful Mum as she saw her doctor today after he asked her to come in as the surgery had just received her blood tests back.

She has been told she is anaemic but of even more concern after the doctor examined her is that he felt a lump near where the liver is so she is now being fast tracked to have a CT scan which hopefully should happen in the next two weeks.

The company I work for, that will remain nameless, and makes literally billions of dollars each year was asking for 'contributions' towards our Christmas do last night from all the people attending.

My poo hole of a company is closed over Christmas and we have been made to take 3 days holiday, and I only get 22.

I was 20 days but every 3 years you get a extra day up to 5 days.

Whats worse is we take holdays by hours, the 20 days is converted in to 8 hours per day.

But we largely do 9 hour days, under the old system 8 hour days worked to 20 days, buy under 9 hours this is just over 17 days.

Previous company I had after 8 years 32 days holiday and on that I had the 8 days bank holidays so 40 days total.

Not good, we get 25 days plus bank holidays then we can buy an extra 5 days with our years flexible benefits we get.

What annoys me is from next year employees have to put a set % into the company pension which will eat up the benefits or it has to come out of wages.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Dreadful food and boring music at the works Christmas do.

Feels like music these days seems to hang around forever, making it difficult if not impossible for new talent to be heard.

Technically your holiday should be a minimum 28 normal working days a year including Bank Holidays. If your normal working day is 9 hours the holiday entitlement is calculated on this basis, so should be 252 hours a year. https://www.gov.uk/calculate-your-ho...-year/45.0/5.0

Where I work, if you regularly work a few hours overtime, this contributes to your holiday entitlement. Then I get 6 weeks leave a year as it is a good company to work for.
