    I've been working in Sainsbury's for around 6 weeks. I work in the cafe. My colleagues describe me as 'cheeky' and 'rude' because I ask them for help when I need it. My team leader has been so rude, shouting at me in front of customers and the other day she pushed me to the side and opened the till, and give this customer a refund because apparently the service I give was crap. I've tried to be friendly and nice to customers but apparently it's not good enough. Unless you offer to wipe their *** it's basically not good enough. She then lectured me and told me she's had to deal with so many complaints all because I've began. She then began to bring up that a customer was screaming in her face and it was my fault despite me not even working that day. She then went on that apparently I ask for too much overtime despite her offering it to me then goes on to say about how they need more staff doing shifts. When she seen I was upset she came up behind me before she left and whispered 'I hope you come in tomorrow'. I then went to find other departments to do overtime then she told me 'I told you I needed more staff for overtime and you have to ask me before going to other departments!!!!' I tried to move department but they had no permanent jobs going so I couldn't do an inside move. I've complained about i but nothing has been done. What do I do?

    Thanks to everyone who replied to my previous question around this issue, I would now just like to ask some clarification on it. The incident was that I caused some damage to a property ($3000) through what was likely my own negligence. The girl whose apartment it is, planned to claim for the damage on her insurance, though she was advised to inform me that her insurance company would very likely sue me to recoup their pay out as this is standard practice. However she then told me that she had a one-off no claim discount and if she were to claim from her insurance, her premium would increase significantly and she also had a $500 deductible so she would not receive the full amount of a claim. She has now told me that instead of claiming through her insurance, she will be suing me directly in the small claims court for the full amount as this means she will not then incur any increase in her insurance premium and she will not have any deductible. I may contest the amount of the damage, but can anyone just clarify would there be any difference in amount to pay whether it were her insurance suing me or if she is suing me?

We were told they no longer fix decks and decks are no longer allowed on their properties, but they would tear them down. If we rented this and part of the attraction was the decks, and I also feel that is part of the cost of renting... can they refuse to repair these decks and just tear them down?

    So last year in December, my ex-girlfriend and I signed a year long lease. Unfortunately, things did not work out and a few months ago, we mutually decided not to renew the lease together. She expressed desire in renewing the lease by herself or asking the landlord to add someone else but obviously, it was none of my concern since I already decided I was not going to be residing there anymore. She eventually settled on a roommate who wouldn’t be able to move in until January (leaving her to pay December’s rent on her own. Assuming that she would handle speaking to the landlord about renewing the lease, I made accommodations to move out by December 5th. Today, she informed me that she contacted the landlord and he has stated that I have to pay December’s rent because “all tenants have to pay last months rent”. But if the lease ends exactly on December 5th.. doesn’t that mean I paid the last months rent in January? Is he penalizing me for not giving him 30 day notice that we both wouldn’t be renewing the lease?

  • How do most people write out the amount of $ 1,750 on a check?

    Best answer: I was taught to write the amount in longhand too. It's done to confirm the amount written in numerals, with the purpose of preventing fraudulent alteration.

    Best answer: I was taught to write the amount in longhand too. It's done to confirm the amount written in numerals, with the purpose of preventing fraudulent alteration. If they don't match, the teller will most likely spot it.

    Edit: In answer to comment #s 9 and 10:
    In the past, when online banking didn't offer automatic bill pay, I did have to go to the bank web site and login to specify which bills to pay, what date to pay, and the amount. With auto bill pay, I told the bank that if the power company bill is under $100, that it should pay it without any interaction from me, because I expect it to be in that range. If the bill comes in at $100 or more, I receive a notification, and it does not pay. This way, I have full knowledge of the billed amount and pay it myself. But usually, I don't pay a great deal of attention to it anymore because it has worked so smoothly.

    I have a home childcare business in my apartment . Last week there was a fire on the 4th of the apartment building and due that Im on the ground level all the water came down to me . Landlords were quick to send repair to remove all the wet sheetrock to prevent mold but they came and left all the ceiling exposed in my bedroom , Daycare and kitchen . I had to close down my business for last week 3 days (since it was a holiday week , we were only going to be open for 3days ) and now the landlord is telling me the new sheetrock might not be put in until this upcoming week Friday which leaves me with another week of having to close down. my question is : What would be the proper procedure for me to ask from the landlord for reimbursements for days that I have been and will continue to be closed due to an emergency out of my control and what documentation Do I need to have in case things get ugly with court. ☆ Sent from iOS Dr. Know! 1.1.02

Customer now says she s got a cheaper quote so wants to use that Painter. I thought it was for the insurance company to choose the Contractor and not the Customer. Any cheques would be paid to me by the insurance company after my Invoice, in this case, after completing and Invoicing. I got a hunch the Landlord wants the money and then get the Tennant to do the work. Is this legit? I thought I had the job? Any ideas? Ta.
