Went away the other week and since we dont have KFC where i live, thought i would take a little drive down to the KFC in the town i was in and get my bread rolls and gravy. Then disaster struck:( As the drive thu line up was so long that it would have passed lunch time and gone into tea time i thought i would go into the shop part itself and get my goodies. The shop part was closed :eek:due to understaffing so they were only running the drive thu part. I didnt bother with it and left. When i asked around about it apparently they are ok to work for but are under staffed due to no one wanting to work nights or week ends. And with unemployment so high:confused: Get them of their lazy rear ends and make them work i say. Decades ago they wouldnt have had a choice but to work if they wanted to survive.
And while im on a roll:rolleyes: some of the young unemployed all seem to have the lasted gadgets in computers etc:confused:

The manager who runs that KFC should get some backbone & sack those who wont work & hire someone else. I'm sure there are a lot who would appreciate some work & they don't have to be youngsters either. Work ethic in the young has gone out the window .

I wouldn't eat it. :eek: I only like their twisters. A lot of the fast food places here are taking on older staff lately. I often see a 40 plus behind the counters these days. Or in checkouts. They can be a little inflexible with their rosters though. :(

How do you sack someone if they don't work:confused:

KFC only want kids, lower pay rates, pay more to older staff and prices will go up,hence less business, so it's a catch 22.

Re: Under Staffed

All because, poor ol' Gibbo didn't get her rolls and gravy.

Didn't you think of self service.

Steve.

Pom Steve, you should have some sympathy for those down under........they don't have these places on their doorstep. It takes me 5 minutes to walk to KFC, passsing three Fish and Chip Shops and 3 Burger/Kebab shops on the way. But I pass them all to get to the club for a nice pint of Thwaites Bitter at affordable price of £1.60. I know they have it harder than me which I why I'm so nice and tolerant to these nice people on here!:biggrin::biggrin::2fun::2fun:

Still same weight from 6 years ago!!:2fun::2fun:

Hi Gibbo,
Whilst I agree with some of what you say, all unemployed people are not lazy. A while ago I experienced an awful ordeal at work and was effectively bullied out of a job I really liked. I was ill for a while,and when I began looking for work again I had a tough time finding something. Its a common misconception that when people are unemployed, they're lazy- I believe this is wrong, and I feel strongly about it.
I agree there are some completely bone idle people out there that my taxes (and millions of others) help to keep!, they don't deserve any help. On the other hand there are some genuine hard workers out there that just want a decent break, yet they get tarred by the same brush, this is so wrong in my opinion.
I'm saddened to say Its the same as regards disability, people very often decide that someone isn't disabled, like they have a right to judge them, and are not even medically qualified to make such a statement anyway..but if they find themselves in an unfortunate situation they're the first to moan about it.
:)

Hi Ellie,
I probably could have worded that better. I know not all unemployed people are lazy.
Sorry to hear about you been bullied. My son went through a terrible time at one job he had a couple of years back. It was also carried on outside of work hours and the police become involved on several occasions. Long story but my son suffered really badly through this and eventually the bully got locked up for a while due to other "matters".

Pom,

What's it Winter already over there, our winters last officially 3 mths but they are only good 6-8 weeks.

Mate you should move to Aussie I'ts the land of milk and honey and plenty of money [not that i've got much tho] and almost no unemployment, and there's plenty of poms and Irish for you to mix with. :biggrin::biggrin:
