Page 2 of Hello again :-)
Hi, my job is very stressful, work as a machine setter on a very fast production line, even a few minutes stop is enough to get all the management out screaming 😱
I've applied for a dozen jobs but not got any replies back yet, I'm lucky to have my own home, took a mortgage out when I was about 20 and its been paid off for a few years so would accept a drop in wages, I'm 49 now.
I get up at 4.30 am and sometimes work to 7.45 pm then on my days off I'm expected to come back in two days and work 5pm to 3am in the morning.
I'm trying my hardest to get out of there just now.
Are you in a union? I presume not...
There's no way you should be taking this.
I was always in a union but left a few years ago. Wish I hadn't now as I would have been supported and would have had a proper investigation. I will join again when I go back. Citizens told me to keep everything incase I need to go off sick again.
I'll feel the mood tomorrow, hopefully they will treat me OK knowing they are lucky to get away with this, if I had plenty of money behind me I would take it further but can't afford to live on sick pay for the next few months, so just getting my head down and getting on with it until something else comes along.

Hey stop messing around with these hellish bosses.
What you do now is no longer do their jobs for them, even if they ask nicely, work to rule, do your own job and no other. Change your ways to them and get hard.
They are a bunch of B.......'s and do not deserve your friendly nature. I have news for you with respect to modern day private industry, its a dog eat dog world, and if your easy going they take advantage.
So heed my words, just do your own job, and meanwhile look for another job and get out fast. There is nothing worse than stress related jobs, get the el out ASAP.
PS...this is why I went self employed years ago to avoid these swine of a bosses, and I was soon in a position just to walk with one weeks notice if they tried it on with me. Good luck.
Skirpy I shall pray to my Saint Anthony
Of Padua to assist you to your new career 👍. It might take a bid time but keep positive.
Seems to be going OK apart from getting snidey and derogetory remarks from one of them.
I've left it too late as usual to comment back and stick up for myself, this is why I end up building up anger in myself, but have taken note and will bring it up at next meeting with main boss.
Cheers for the replies 👍

Just cut him off the list of people you'll do favours for...
