I’m sure at some point you’ve all had a job you absolutely hated, the kind where you wake up in the morning working out how you’re going to endure another day of it.
You probably daydreamed about sending your boss an email, text or letter, letting them know exactly how you feel about them… before deleting the message and just getting on with it.
One person who didn’t just get on with it was Lisa Bell, and she decided to take action about her situation.
Lisa was a cleaner for a hotel in Blackpool and she managed to quit her job in style, sending her bosses a ‘sorry for your loss’ card announcing her resignation.
The 40-year-old was working at the Lyndene Hotel in the seaside town, where she says she was treated terribly.
According to Lisa, despite being on their feet for an entire six hour shift, cleaners were banned from sitting down during their breaks and from having a drink while working.
After finally saying enough is enough, the cleaner found the cheapest sympathy card available and sent it to her bosses as her notice of resignation.
Lisa wrote: “Dear [name of employers], As you may have noticed I’m not in work today. This is because you are arseholes to work for so I have got a new job. I was planning on giving you a week’s notice but whilst I was on my unpaid break, [employer 1] radioed [employer 2] to come tell me not to sit down on my break. Why not grow some balls and tell me yourself?”
She didn’t stop there, adding: “Because that would mean you getting off your arse and leaving the office! I hate the fact that even whilst on my unpaid break [you are] sat in his office spying on me. Maybe if you two worked constantly, on your feet for six hours you also would like to be able to sit down for ten mins!”
Lisa signed it off in polite fashion, informing them that Karan is also leaving: “Regards, Lisa Bell. P.s Karan quits too, you’ve treated her even worse… we’re off to work together.”
Lisa, we salute you…
Corrie’s Colson Smith shows off impressive lockdown weight loss in new photo
He looks amazing!
Colson Smith has stunned fans again showing off his weight loss in a happy snap at Chatsworth House.
Famous for playing Craig Tinker on the Coronation Street cobbles, Colson Smith has shared another pic of his epic 10 stone weight transformation.
He first wowed fans near the beginning of lockdown with his weight loss after taking up fitness as part of his character’s storyline of being a police officer.
Colson had a complete overhaul to his fitness routine but also attributes some weight loss to an unfortunate case of food poisoning in December that caused him to lose one and a half stone.
He captioned the latest picture: “T-minus 5 days till a hair cut for me. Keep staying safe.”
Colson recently told Good Morning Britain how he’d been staying in touch with his gym to keep fit throughout lockdown.
He said: “When I prepared for this storyline, I said to myself I’ll make it as easy as I can for myself, so I sat down with Rob Brennan who’s a life coach, and we worked through everything I could do to make it as easy as possible.
“So I have my breakfast and lunches delivered and they’re still being delivered now by a company called FitChef which means cooking basically I don’t have to think about I can just eat.
“In terms of the gym: I’ve kind of kept in touch with the gym I go to in Manchester, because they’re putting on loads of training programmes on their app and stuff like that.
“I’ve done the odd Joe Wicks PE! It’s just making the most out of the situation.”
Well done Colson!
Lorry spills hundreds of Kopparberg cans across the A50 causing delays
A lorry shed its load and released hundreds of unopen Kopparberg cider cans across the A50 early this morning.
Derbyshire Roads Policing Unit tweeted to ‘expect delays’ after a lorry ‘shed its load’ of Koppaberg cans across the A50 junction with A515 Sudbury.
The incident happened at about 2am and the road only opened at 6am after contractors cleared the debris.
A later Tweet added that the road has been reopened ‘following a quick response by recovery agents and highways contractors’. They added that the road is now ‘clear for your journey this morning’.
The pictures attached to the original Tweet show that the parked Knights of Old logistics lorry’s blue Tarpaulin curtain looks to have been ripped.
Unfortunately, this means the cans have now all been cleared away for those looking for a cheeky bargain.
Old Labrador found abandoned with heartbreaking note from owner
This is so sad.
A 10-year-old Labrador has been found tied to a gate with a heartbreaking note.
The elderly black Labrador was found tied to the gate outside Jasmil Kennels in Upchurch near Sittingbourne, Kent.
The note said the owner had had the dog for the past 10 years but decided to give him up because he had ‘not learnt to be good’.
The full note reads: “Hello, pls can you take me in as my owner has abandoned me after 10 years because I have not learnt to be good, so I have been returned here where he found me. Thank you for looking after me, sorry for inconvinance.” [sic]
Swale Borough Council’s stray dog service is appealing for more information as the Lab was not fitted with a microchip
In a social media post the service said: “This elderly black Labrador was found tied up to railings at Jasmil Kennels this morning. We would very much like to speak to the owner to establish why the dog has been abandoned.
“If you recognise him and can be of any assistance, please contact the council in confidence. He will now be taken into our care.”
A spokesperson for Swale Council said: “If an owner is struggling with their dog, this is not the way to deal with it.
“Re-homing is the last option, but this isn’t the way to do it, so we would appreciate any information we can get so we can speak to the owner.”
