You dont think I've worked for a living... I could count my days off in 15 years on fingers and toes. I've a family to provide for.
    Ofcourse your the manager.... with an attitude like yours no wonder this game has turned to ****... yes boss.... I'll suck your baws as long as I get to keep my job.... by the way I saw that scaffolder smoking on site so can you pay him off instead of me 😱.... dont you just love the scaffolding game....
    I wouldnt employ you. I can count my days off in 35 years on one hand. You sound like a sick note and malingerer.

    Listen I've been in the game near 25yrs been advanced for 13yrs, but if I have to labour for my wages so be it,it's lads who think I'm not labouring I'm a scaff etc who are also giving the game a bad name,it's all scaffolding at the end of the day so what does it matter,it's bad enough now that labourers don't want to labour after 6months because they get a tool belt and pt1 and think that there now 2nd fixers,this games fecked lads with pt2s after a couple of year's and ain't got a clue,so it's better to have a more experienced scaff or yourself labouring or getting the gear because at least it's gonna be right and ready as you need it, especially if you've got a young baby to feed that should have been your priority and not your I'm to good to labour pride, at least back in the day when you had to run gear up 8 or 9m ladders all day catch gear from 30ft and get screamed at if you wasn't any good,(fittings thrown at you if you answered back) made proper scaffs out of you ,not like now tool belt after a month pt1 after 6 and think there scaffs after 3
