Callum, the old manager (nice chap) moved out over the weekend, contractors in on Monday morning - loads of ripped out wood in the car park by Monday eve. Going ahead with gusto!
BTW, best of luck Callum.

A Managers Viewpoint / Sad state of affairs

This post is my own post copied and pasted from general discussion section. Just think it might get more attention in this section...............                                                               
 Don't believe that Humphrey has gone quiet. He is still displaying his 'dickensian' style of management and putting totally unreasonable targets and pressure on his staff. His actions ( which I believe,  in my opinion,  is verging on constructive dismissal tactics) has led to one of his best and longest serving managers ( who took his job very seriously and was proud of his position)  attempting to take his own life. He saw this as the only way to escape the constant pressure, thankfully the manager survived his ordeal due to being found in time and the speed and skill of the brilliant paramedics. I hope, although I doubt it, that this resonates through the brewery and Mr Smith realises it is real people's lives he is toying with. I sincerely hope that he can start showing some empathy and start to manage with a some degree of humanity so this kind of thing never happens again

I very much doubt it, but I really hope he does change his ways.

I think this is a good thing, I don't like to hear too much of it, tho' I have let the odd profanity out on occasion. Some folk, tho' seem to be unable to talk withoutan  F as  every other word! That stinks and good riddance to it if this works- I shall just have to be on MY guard too, fair enough.
