What do you mean you gave the boss THAT version of the report? Oh, ****ing ****balls


I had a customer once who was abusing our help resources to the point of harassment, all without any shred of any issues on our end.

Lucky for me as I am a major shareholder I did not really risk anything. Still I've felt so embarrassed.

Re: Who are they addressing?

>"when oppressive policies can grow without opposition"

You mean you mean something like Windrush scandal or jailing your postal workers without even a hint of punishing perpetrators?
