It's a shit of a job Ex, but while you feel shit about it, there is some hope.  The day you don't feel shit about it is the day to really worry.  Take some time to look through your contacts and see if there is anyone you can mention to that might have a use for his skills.  Maybe even mention it on here and see if another Trannie might be able to put 2 and 2 together to help him out

Feeling pretty shit right now. Had to tell a guy who I've been working with for 21 years that he won't have a job at the end of the month. And he's been a contractor for the past 6 years, so there won't be a golden handshake at the end of it. I get home, and my daughter had to have the same conversation with one of her staff.

 

I remember on one contract my boss and I had to fly down to Melbourne to do it. The team lead down there had a couple of guys who were clearly not performing, but being contractors, you need to be 100% from the get go, they had tried everything from their end, gave them multiple chances and coaching, but no pick up in effort. Even though it was non-performance, it was still a tough gig to give them the news and help pack them up. Was the first time I had to do it too, and even though they are only contractors, I wanted to make sure they got the proper feedback, everyone should be able to learn.

Boss suggested we grab a beer at the airport on the way back. It was good to chat about it. It's made it easier on the next times around.

My contract ends here at the end of the month, no handshake, but I have tried to save as much as I can. Unfortunately, budgets are being cut and there is no job for me on the upcoming projects.

Too windy to go spearing this past week, and it’s still horrendously windy but snuck down a creek (bit of a wild boat launch) but ended up having a good day on the mudcrab hunt

Two things Kieran:

First, don't you have catch limits over there?

Secondly, imagine how that poor guy in the back row felt. He was obviously enjoying a quiet drink and you came & ruined his whole day.

Certainly do have limits Ex, three of us on the boat today with fishing licenses so we are under the limit, I share a lot of my catches and have already given away most of the crab, kept three for us as a family, a few other friends who do not have boats  etc always benefit from my trips, they are always here to help me with anything and care about me so it’s kind of my way of saying thanks.

😂😂😂yes the poor fella at the back, disturbed his session on the beers

Tough day...

Some things in life you never forget...! 25 years to the day...since i finally stood up to him..! Parents are supposed to teach you right from wrong...yet what if they are the ones doing the wrong...! There is no place in life for violence anywhere... especially families, children and homes..!

I’ll be glad when 2019 is consigned to the history books! I got a call from my parents today.  Mums been diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer, three aggressive malignant tumours in her right breast, no lumps can be felt, even her doctor can’t feel them, her yearly mama gram picked up two little spots, the biopsy results came back yesterday with the bad news.  Although I’m not overly close with my parents it’s still very worrying.  She is booked in with the surgeon on Monday to discuss the way forward.  

One positive I guess is early detection (which this is) makes this very treatable hopefully.

Yeah am keen but I need to get some fitness happening which I have started.  I should be there regardless as I’m heading to Taupo that weekend after IMWA.  So yeah will see what happens.  Nothings concrete yet apart from getting my own self better to start with.  But I do miss the training etc

I look forward to seeing what outrageous outfit you come up with next
