    Without employers there would be no employees.

    We have lots of employers, they are called customers.

    I was an employer for 15 years and I quickly realised that you were only ever going to be as good as your worst employee.

    I may be wrong but I assumed the person we are talking about is a manager more as company owner.

    I'd politely suggest to them they "reconsider" what comes out of their mouth.

    Sexist and ageist in one comment. That's quite a skill. Not.

    What’s their view on parents who have to take time off at short notice to look after sick children? Get rid?
    (Clearly a sensible strategy but not necessarily acceptable to all :whistle: )

    Nah you don't want to be weighted down, acceleration is the key to making it through Airdrie. That and caltrops.

    My line manager was the same, despite our place actively supporting cycle commuting.

    When telling him about a MTB weekend I was doing with mates he said 'I thought you'd given that up' - I said, only road cycling. I did delight to tell him I was back in work on Monday with no injuries, but we'd had two broken bikes, a nasty horsefly bite and a few bruised between the 7 of us.

    I no doubt, if I was off with a MTB injury he wouldn't be happy (I was off work 7 months and on 2 months phased return after getting my spine broken commuting to work).

    I am not sure if you are asking me or replying to a quote , but it was as they say these days a line manager , a lady of some 60+ years , It appears that she was more concerned with the inconvenience of having to re schedule the personnel Roster in the event of time off work than Ms ozboz welfare ,

    I was replying to a quote but thanks for confirming exactly what I suspected. Obviously I would just ignore the woman.

    That sounds about right for poor management. :cursing:

    Despite the fact that when there are major events on in any city , cycling is the best way of getting about and avoiding any disruption.
