    Why not?
    A great place open up! most of us don't know each other, we are on on here for different reasons, we are all very different people. And look at those of us who want to help.

    For me its heart warming to see so many caring people who I'd normally disagree with on another subject.

    I had a callout the other night. He lived in a flat with uncontrollable water that was leaking to the flat down stairs. I told him my emergency callout rates (7 30pm). And that was to make safe and advise. Leaving the customer with drinking water is must.

    My mate attended. I told my mate who isn't experienced in call out work... To make safe and only fix if its an easy fix.

    I called my mate 2 hours later and he was still there. He said I tried to fix but it needs new parts. I Told you to make safe explain to the customer book a time tomorrow and replace parts at a cheaper rate.

    He said "he has children I was just trying to do the right thing" (because he's a good man).
    Cap off
    Make safe
    leave him with water to the taps
    Explain and get home. I said

    The Customer phoned up 7 30 next morning complaining that my mate took 2 hours and never fixed the problem. I don't want him back.

    He's still not paid for the call out.

  4. I feel you’re asking me then no, not as yet.
     
  5. Dear all,

    I’m genuinely overwhelmed by the support and kind comments and haven’t meant to cause any offence or upset. I won’t delve into the suicidal thoughts because that’s a different subject matter, and obviously would open a can of worms to hijackers. @securespark, hope you’re ok, and I haven’t caused you any issues.

    Who’s All?




    Joking...... I think it’s easier to talk about things to unknown people personally.
    If you don’t ask, you don’t get.
    Well done for sharing ;)

  10. To be fair, if I was a regular on here, and perhaps needing help in this way, I don't think I'd want to do that under my normal user name perhaps? It's not like it can be the friendliest of places at times!

    But, I will never understand answering to own posts, pretending to be someone else if that has happened.

    Wish you all the best Dire, or whoever you are! Good luck.

    Best wishes Dire

    you dont have to leave here, MODS usually get upset by aliases, but theyve been understanding.

    It seems youve had some run ins with another poster on here and feel badly treated -just bear in mind the people who moderate do so for free, its hard to make judgements, just let it go over your head. I cant count how many times Ive seen people arguing "the Mods" are biased against them, its never true really.

    Don't make this about another forum member because it wasn't. The mod could and should have acted differently knowing who the poster was.

    I only suggested another forum member as the OP mentioned another name.

    I thought of that a few years before I stopped working, they wanted you to have a teaching degree, they couldn't care less if you didn't know the subject as long as you had teaching qualifications.

    Dire

    Come back with another name, and if you want or need to talk we can give you our unprofessional advise.
    If you found any advice helpful , then thats a good thing, You now need to keep the ball rolling and ride that wave while the irons hot. If you struggle to do that ask any woman how to Multitask
