A MAN is loathed by his colleagues for not working regular extra hours for no money.
Accounts assistant Tom Booker is considered a bone idle waster because he turns up at nine and goes home at 5.30pm, like it says in the contract he signed when offered the job.
HR manager Mary Fisher said: “That guy just takes the piss, coming in here at the correct time, having an hour for lunch as specified on page two of his contract and then leaving at the exact time stated in the ‘Hours of Work’ section on page three.
“It’s almost as if he considers that contract to be some sort of legally-binding agreement rather that a worthless scrap of paper to be disregarded if the company wants more of your time and energy without paying for it.
“We all stay late most days, because our lives are governed by fear. How dare he have some basic integrity.”
Booker said: “I just go in and I do the work and then I go.
“Don’t tell anyone, but I don’t even think about my job after I get home.”
