It was christmas in the workhouse,


Speaking of Mrs Bs office bash has brought me to thinking about what celebrations are laid on for us at the factory… nothing…Honest,No Bonus,no Crimbo dinner not even a diary. Seem like we are the forgotten people when it come to christmas cheer, Mind you like all good workers we expect no less but we sometimes get that feeling we are the ones out in the snow looking in through the windows at the celebrations of others..Some poor fuckers have to be the tiny tims of the world eh?
Dickens would be rubbing his hands in glee for a storyline like ours i can tell ya, some of the gaffers have gotten themselves a few crimbo goodies but not a crumb has fallen of the table to us on the shop floor..What will we take home to the kids? Will Marley’s ghost visit this year? If i held my breath and died the factory would use my cold dead corpse as a draft excluder for the guvnors door till it started to stink!

Gawd bless us one and all!

    I fear the factory had an early Xmas present in September!! A gift that although has no cash value will give you all a massive ego boost when you think “thank fuck I’m not like that”

    They should at least cough up a Turkey or a Ham or SOMETHING! Even the printing company I used to work for did that… and they were the folk of 30 minute lunches!
