So how do you tell a collegue you work with that you dont like them, and dont wish to work with them anymore.........when this collegue happens to be the big bosses spoilt brat son?

I'm also on a 12 week trial and could get sacked at any point if I step out of line.

He is the most annoying sh*** you have ever met

have no useful advice to offer you matey, apart from good luck !!

Be professional and don't say anything. You can't whine every time you don't like working with someone. Unless you don't want to work.

You don't work here with me do you?
Similar probs here, but I'm not on a 12 week thing, so regularily tell him where to get off. Plus his Father knows he's got a TUBE for a son.

Can't do anything about it - Life is just sh_t sometimes

hmmmm 12 weeks eh,
depends how much you want this job, if its alot then keep quiet i would...
horrid position to be in.
All the best

Yeah his father knows I'm sure, I mean why else would he give his son the most menial job on the site :roll:

You understand that in life you will not always get on with your colleagues and realise that is life in the workplace. Keep quiet, it really isnt work getting yourself in hot water over.

Thanks, I've been trying to get this job for nearly 2 years, and its really good money and really easy hours to suit my needs. I dont want to lose it.

Thanks guys, its just hard to bite your tongue sometimes, I hate the little git I really do. I just have to put up with him for the rest of this week and next. The thing that gets me is they know no one else will work with him so lumber him with me cos they know I wont say anything.....so annoying

Yeah I did think of that option, but I think I'm the last resort as all the other drivers wont drive with him

We all work with people we don't like. Just have to grin and bare it.

If you don't mind me asking what is the job that you both do?



I'm a HGV driver and he is my 'assigned drivers mate (temporarily, whilst his driver is on holiday) :roll:

Easiest job in the world, he just has to sit there whilst I do all the hard work, then help me offload at the destination for about an hour :roll:

That spell checker sure is a poor one.

I think you meant:-

Maybe you're the problem?

It's difficult to argue against that notion!

maybe you need to look at this a different way. your not perfect. so maybe think about the way you work with him too. if you are bugging him he is going to find it difficult to work with you consequently making it difficult for you to work with him. its propably from both sides. an example is that when i was having a horrible time working with my boss i though that they were a bit of a di** but when i actually thought about it and my actions/personality i noticed somethings that may be irritating them. the big word for both parties is always PATIENCE.

i hope this helps.

Option 1: Just give **** back if he starts throwing his weight around, make him work... if he isn't doing the work then report him and demand it is sorted, you have the law on your side (unfair dismissal) if he should go crying back to his old man.Option 2or do nothing and put up with it for a few more weeks?



No option but to put up with it really; During a "trial" period they can get rid of you for absolutely any reason they like, in fact they don't even have to give you a reason
