Going the extra mile
The roads are built and I suppose the banks have taken away theese mining tippers, they are huge and very new.
My first fare of the day rode with me all day !
I couldn't get her out of my mind.
(No not that )
A Polish girl, I picked her up on the Clontarf Rd and after I had said my few words she told me how she was being bullied at work, the bullying is so bad that it has,effected her health and now she has heart problems.
I told her to write down what happened, dates and times and who saw it and go to her HR department.
She said that she had done this and her employer did nothing.
I Googled Bullying in the workplace and got lots of information there.I hope it works.www.citizensinformation.ie › Employment › Equality in work
I really felt like giving her a hug, it is awful.
She is a really shy gentle girl..Imagine coming here from your family and being bullied so badly that you are ill..Then you have no folks to go home to.
I gave her my phone number and if she rings me I found someone today who are looking for staff..
I just thought I would pitch that now..
I was told a taxi story today which was heard on BBC radio 4 today.
After the tube bombings in London a lady had come to identify the body of her daughter.
After she had done this she wanted to get home to recover from the horror of the event, there was not a taxi in sight and as she searched one pulled up to let out a passenger. She ran up an jumped in. "Sorry love I'm booked "said the driver.
He saw the state of her face and just said, "stay there"
When the driver heard that she had just come from doing he told her to relax and tell him where she lived.
He then drove her to Reading and refused any money.
"I just had to do this for you to let you know that there are still plenty of people in the world who care."
She never forgot his kindness.
