ordered out for lunch on several ocassions while I was slaving away in
their basement. <snip>
It would be verry, very, tempting to work again, until they
repeated that. Then say you were going to get something to eat. And
never return. Then when they called, I'm sure they would, tell them you
had other commitments - and never, ever, go back. Of course, it would
be less tempting if you thought you might have to put in more than part
of just one day for them to shaft you on lunch. I think if I could be
quite sure I'd only expend part of one day I might well do just that.
I'd make damn sure to take any of my tools and whatever when I left.
Or, if you don't want to be patty about the whole thing you could always
explain your feelings, then leave. I'm not sure which way Id go, but
I'd be "extremely" tempted to go for petty.
Like someone else said, whenever my dad or his buddies needed work
done, several would show up, work, and "always" be fed. They'd say they
were working on something, several would show up if they were availbe,
if not it was understood. One might be there one day, not the next.
I've seen people working at our place while my dad was at work, they
worked different shift. That's the way it was. And should be. Of
course, there was always a lot of supervising, involving sitting down
while someone else was actually working, and a lot of criticising of the
work actually bing done. Then the roles would be reversed
Me, so far I've been able to do all I need by myself, or with my
sons' "cheerful" assistance.
