I have brilliant banter at work, even with the gals, it's coffin humour, but with a twist, really funny endless banter.

hi mick,
although i didn't always agree with your views, having a first grandchild is worth going back for, as my parents always find it hard to leave theirs over here.
Not taking up the offer of a new LMO is understandable esp when you find out its for a driver who is finding it tough at another company.

Hi Les, no obligation to agree with my views! If we all agreed then it would just be a bunch of backslappers, and no real info would get out.

I didn't refuse the LMO because of the other couple, it was just a good coincidence for them. I'm glad you're still going strong, but are you still at H&R?
We will be working in France again next year, but it's only a days drive or a short flight back home if there are any problems with Grandchild.
Take it easy and drive safe.

Still plenty of HGV drivers going to Canada so maybe the wages in the UK will turn?

I'm sure he doesn't actually care about my or anybody else's situation but if at any point he flys into Manchester I would more than welcome him off the flight and buy him a pint, then he can make his own mind up, maybe when we visit family in Winnipeg he might return the complement,stranger things have happened.
Unfortunately Dom, we can't really judge what anyone is like on forums, I have met some of my protaganists whilst back in Canada and got on very well with them, even surprising some of them maybe, by proving that I can actually do the job which most of us can anyway given the chance.
If you met Dave I'm sure you would get on just fine, and even I would go for a pint with the likes of Gremmie. If you were in your workplace this sort of stuff wouldn't usually end up in a fight, just a p**s take of each other.

If I had posted all positive stuff about H&R I would have probably have got slagged off just as much.
