I have to say that the employer in this article had a good idea. Name and shame them I say.
Could be useful for other incidents.
I gave him my services but just wasn't up for the job in hand. Put me in jail please, but don't let the screws get to me!!
(Screws - slang for prison officers)
I've bent over backwards for this man, but only received the deposit. I want the balance paid up.
I use to be man enough for the post. But she went for the post man instead.
Berlusconi not afraid
This fine up standing man (I guess his was at the time of the incident - upstanding that is) has made it know that he is not worried in the least.
But he said he was doing a favour for the then-Egyptian leader, Hosni Mubarak, because Mr Berlusconi was told the girl was Mr Mubarak's granddaughter.
I wouldn't have dropped that name into the conversation. Look what happened to Mr Mubarak now!!

Thought for the day
They say hard work never hurts anybody, but why take the chance.
