OMG I'm so angry. Just back from my goodbye lunch. Not something I've organised, a couple of peeps in the office just told me a time and a place. Anyway, as staid as these thngs are people start to leave after their mains.....CEO, Chairman, Partner all skulking off without so much as a goodbye.....one of the partners who is normally the first to leave is still hangng around. Ah I'm thinking he's going to miss me, how lovely. Well turns out the Chairman and CEO decided early in the week this lunch that I'VE NOT ORGANISED needs to be paid for by individuals. The partner who has stayed behind can't believe the cheek of asking people to pay for their own lunch when it's a company event so he has paid for it out his own pocket.
The fooking billionaire chairman who I've worked for for TEN fooking years can't even put his hand in his BUSINESS pocket and fork out for a lunch for me.
UN REAL. UN FOOKING REAL.

Is it normal for the Company to pay? We have always paid for our own meals out.
Absolutely rubbish though if its the norm. Was it nice though?

Absolutely normal for the company to pay or else we'd be going down the pub, not to frigging £30per main course type places and certainly not with w@nkers

How crap, bad enough people to start just leaving, but you'd really think something like that would be paid for by the company unless it was mentioned beforehand!

Better off out of there then chick. One more day to go. Hope that they give you a present tomrorrow

That's not good if it's the norm. However here we would't get anything paid for by the company
20/03/2013 at 14:53
Unreal, I bet it cements your views on leaving.
20/03/2013 at 14:57
That's crap belle but good of the partner to pay for you all.
I won't be getting jack tomorrow Fi but thought ah well at least I'll get a goodbye lunch......I don't care it's not the norm for people and their companies, it is here. It's bang out of order. 10 fooking years

Exactly, if that is the norm, I would be raging as well. Can't believe that they won't even do a collection for you for a little gift, they really all must be t0ssers

For my last day this Friday we're all taking in party food, I know they've done a collection, and the plan is then to go to the pub for a drink and chips after work. I'd have been annoyed if a) nothing was arranged and even more so if b) I was expected to foot the bill of a meal I hadn't even planned.
