beyond angry!!! Was told today after just one week of being "on the books" that I had a choice of a lift in the company van or to use my TT for a 76 mile return journey with no mileage claim ! I'm on not a great wage so I needed the 25p a mile ! I As work has 'slowed down" they won't pay my mileage or travel time ....so I now have to drive to head office 10 mins away from home, leave my beloved TT parked there for the day - on an industrial estate - and be ferried up to westerhope and back again ....I was working for an agency but the company offered me 40 hours and fuel expenses in my contract - a week later I'm told it's a lift in the van or I'm down the road! The total d*** of a boss said " why are you worried about leaving your car in a car park - it's just apiece of metal with 4 wheels - you're going on like its a baby!" .....errrrr...yes ...he is my baby !!! ok so I don't have kids - I have my TT and I've never owned anything but cr** cars and I've saved up for him - and the thought of leaving him in a car park 40 miles from where I'm being taxied to worries me sick ......I'm seriously on the brink of telling them to shove their job ...I know for a fact once they get used to not paying my fuel claim that they won't reinstate it .....Its a shame as I love my job but I love my TT more - I think asking me to leave the agency and go to work for them but tell the agency I wasn't looking for work to save them having to pay a fee for taking me on was a bit naughty - so now I'm in limbo - left the agency and on the company books but they've reneged on the contract - however I'm sure the contract small print has me stitched up. The boss did make a sarky comment about paying too much if I could afford to buy an Audi ........errr- mate I saved up and have worked all my life and never signed on or claimed a penny from the state ......if anyone has read through and made it this far in this rant .....thanks lol!!! In the words of the Stranglers - "should I stay or should I go?!!!"
