A BOSS’S claim that his staff are like a family to him has collapsed under very little scrutiny.
Company director Norman Steele made the seemingly heartfelt claim at his monthly staff meeting.
However employees were unconvinced because all he does is make them work really hard for the smallest possible amount of money.
Employee Tom Logan said: “I’m going through a divorce, and if this is a family Norman would let me sleep on his sofa for an unspecified amount of time.
“But I asked him and he just said ‘who are you again?’.”
Steele later clarified his statement: “Well, not a family exactly. If we were family, I couldn’t sack you.
“Well, I could. I sacked my brother for turning up late, so let that be a lesson to all of you.”
