To say i feel like crap is an understatement i have phoned in sick today i just cant face going in, not back in till Monday hopefully i will be feeling better by then.

Hi Martin , i dont post much just lurk here and there !

I response to the guard thing , you were just doing your job .
If you had let this person get away with not having the ticket things that were reported could have been much worse.
i say well done to you for sticking by the rules and doing your job as it should be done.

hope you are feeling a better now x
Oh hun - you really have been put in the most awful position by your management. How very unfair of them to do this to their staff.

You have done nothing wrong - you have followed their directives - as inflexible as they are. You shouldn't feel bad about the journo 'exposing' their policy - they should and obviously do which is why they're denying it! T*ssers!

I jolly well hope you've had a senior manager on the phone apologising to you today - or at least to say 'well done' for doing what you were told your job was!

Are you in a Union? Would they be any good in this situation?

What do your colleagues say? I would bet good money that they're furious on your behalf!!!



finding my way again !
looks like you're being made a scape goat here,as previously said, if you're in a union, speak to them as a matter of urgency.
good luck
Well that last report just vindicates you, doesn't it! Proves that you're not at fault whatsoever!

I do hope you're feeling better about the whole thing, hun.
