    Our contracts are not worth the paper they are written on they move the goal posts to always suit them

    Always want to have a reserve fund for emergencies. Maybe borrow from a close relative?

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    So you're telling me you can't afford gas to get to work because they aren't paying you for the time you were sick?

    Here in the States, most of us have short term disability. Starts paying on the 8th day.

    Apparently, you don't have that across the pond.

    Maybe you should have worked with a little pain. We all have at one time or another. Drugs are wonderful.
