    some of you may know that i've worked part time at blockies for the last few years. three weeks ago we had a new manager - today i've quit, this is the second week running that i've gone into work to have her virtually accuse me of trying defraud the company. so i told her to shove it! i'm sad to have gone as i met some fantastic people while there - strange, i feel up :D and down :( at the same time.

    Not really looking for replies - just wanted to write it down - thanks for reading :)

    no not at all, i work in public sector I.T.

    First thing to say is i love film, i'm a sponge for it, i watch alot of films :D it was costing me a fortune to watch 6/7/8 movies a week (the days before online dvd rental) so as Mrs D works late on Monday and Friday nights, i got a job at blockies - not for the money, for the perks. :D

    free rentals, (i've saved over £4000 in rental fees)
    staff discounts, (it cost me £80 to get onto xbox live (xbox, live kit, halo 2)
    pick of the previewed, (often copies are unwatched esp asian titles)
    i've had things pre release i watched the end of season 3 of 24 before it had aired in the UK. Oh and i've been paid :D and i've made some really good friends along the way.

    All that for six hours a week, i thought it was a bargain

    its a different vibe from the day job, i'm there by choice not nessecity. plus i have no responsiblty. i go in, have a laugh, buy some DVDs, serve some punters, have a laugh and go home. I've met some great contacts for alsorts of things plumbers, builders, techies, police men, sparkies. loads of really great people that i wouldn't normally have met doing my day job.

    I'll miss it

    christ i'm going to have to pay now :rolleyes:

    Not sure if you want to pursue this route, but if your new manager has been acting as you seem to describe you may have a case for constructive dismissal.
