    Default What do you think?

    Would you feel guilty for having someone sacked?

    If you felt someone was totally incompetent (very nice family guy, but totally incompetent), and possibly a risk to loads of other jobs, including yours!

    Someone who has been given loads of chances to prove themselves but kept coming up short!

    Would you have them sacked??

    (And yes, I've been feeling guilty!!)

    No fuck em.

    If they are no use and it is your job to make the place run smoothly, no problem.

    If they are a workmate and your a rat, yes hold your head in shame, wanker.

    I've never ratted anyone in my life!

    But, everyone should be accountable for their mistakes......right?

    I would love to hang half the incompetent fucking tools I work with.

    But I'm not doing my bosses job for him!

    If the person was a bully that's a different matter.

    That is a tough question to answer as I had something similar a few years back with a work mate who used to turn up drunk for a night shift we both worked on.
    He was also a good friend and I tried to tell him that if the boss found him like this he would be sacked and he would thank me for my advice and promise to sort himself out.
    Alas he would eventually turn up drunk again as the man had a drink problem ,so in the end I had a word with our boss who was sympathetic with this guys ploy and had a word with him which resulted in him going to a treatment center for 28 days , and delighted to say he is back working now and never had a problem with him since as he don't drink anymore.
    This may be different to your situation but there is only one way to solve it and that is to tell him the truth like you just wrote here and let him in no doubt that he is facing the sack.
    It is only he who can change himself but you can let him know as a friend that he needs to change.

    Wrong IMHO.

    It's not what happens on a shift it's who has the best report (i.e. cover up, the Irish way.)

    It could have gone the other way.

    Better to just do your part of the work if you don't want to cover for them.

    They will be found out eventually.

    I have first hand experience of this.

    I have to agree.

    There is a phrase "don't shoot the messenger"
    It was coined because people do
