Just Remember…..The Boss Is The Boss Until You Have Your Last Pay Check

June 29, 2009

Well dear readers……..some of you will have on occasion been sacked, bulleted, given the good news etc etc by your employer during your life time.

You may have felt it completely unwarranted……..and thought of retribution…….like putting a dead fish behind the dashboard of you bosses Mercedes…….or having a crap inside the HR Manager’s handbag……..or worse!!

This of course if human nature…….no, not shitting in woman’s handbags you weirdo…….the need for vengeance and retribution if you feel you have been wronged……but there is a British saying that vengeance is a dish best served cold.  This is especially true if you intend to try and claim against your former employer for wrongful dismissal, outstanding monies etc etc.

This post is about 2 women called Anfisa Sizhuk and Anzhelika Shemyakina who worked for Deco-Line in Vladivostok……..that’s a bloody cold bit of Russia, if you don’t know where it is.

Well, during the financial crisis, these women were “given the good news” and found they had much more time on their hands than they had before.

Both had been employed as office managers……how many do you need?…….but had, according to their boss, Konstantin Lyalikov, spent more time surfing the net and chatting than actually doing any work…….sounds like every office manager and HR department I have ever seen to be fair. 

HR at it's best!

HR at it's best!

Anyway, the ladies decided that…..as they no longer had a job……they would attempt to get outstanding holiday pay…….and Russians and Ukrainians get a lot of holidays!!!

The company refused so the ladies took their issue to the Russian Labour authorities……who eventually ruled in their favour.

Happy ladies…….the last laugh was with them…..retribution was theirs…….or so they thought.

The company agreed to pay quite a substantial sum to the women…….and promptly delivered it……..on the back of a truck!!

Eh?……..I know what you’re thinking…….they must have either been paid an amazing salary or been owed for holidays going back decades!

Anyway, each woman received 33 sacks full of money, weighing around 20kgs each…….unfortunately for the ladies, the vast majority of the money inside was in 5 Kopek coins…….which are almost completely f*cking useless in Russia……although legal tender……..and worth, well, a tiny percentage of a US Cent and therefore absolutely nothing against a UK penny.

Mr Lyalikov stated “The girls wanted a lot of money, and they got it.  What difference does it make what sort of units it came in?”……..Now like I said, vengeance is a dish best served cold!!
