Kin, ell that all sounds very deep. I'm glad I'm nearly out of the game than beginning it. We are drowning in red tape. We all want to go home safe, but paper work is overcoming natural talent. Risk assessments, method statements,alarps. All I want to do is my maintenance engineer job. Not report to a shiney arse that's been on a course for two weeks and knows my job better than me. Hopefully all be retired next year aged 56 self funded. Bring it on
Everyone I speak with feels the same, in all aspects of employment, they are all totally fucked off with the red tape/bureaucracy....I just wonder who will actually be doing anything in 5 years time!
I have done many different jobs up to senior management. It all went to shit big time, some 10-12 years ago.....It has gone downhill ever since, at an alarming rate.
Thing is, the peach have demoralised everyone and that demoralisation brings control, so everyone does as they are told, it has gone back to Victorian times, to see people scared of CCTV in their work place is totally wrong.
I semi-retired 6 years back and will fully retire very soon. I have a lucrative business operating right now, but the bullshit that comes with being a supplier to the large corps. is stifling, I would rather wrap it up and fuck off for an easy life, than jump through their imaginary hoops because it makes some dickless wonder feel important....I dislike people intensely and they are becoming worse, as they are fearful for their jobs and thus their future, horrible fuckers to deal with are humans.
seems it's creeping in to all industries...there has to be a factory turning out these brain dead
management ..... probably all these uni types with the ten a penny degrees in media studies
