Ah, there it is, right on schedule: The Fear. - Diary of a Necromancer
Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense, you're just not keeping up
Ah, there it is, right on schedule: The Fear.
Street still impassable. We managed with the aid of two Helpful Bystanders to get the car into a legal space, at least, but that's as far as he's going for some time. Mum is frantic because $COMPANY is not the sort who make any provisions for people not being machines, even when the entire damn city is shut down, and every day she can't get out there is a day she doesn't get paid... I hate having to live like this.

I'm glad you were able to eventually find a legal spot to park in.....they're at a real premium and will be for a while to come, I think.

I am sorry you have to go through this and hope it all works out for your Mum - that sounds like a nasty employer indeed.

The problem with her job is that she works for Company X, who are a subcontractor to Company Y -- so the people who are actually doing the work are sort of orphaned between two entities who can go "no, that part's YOUR responsibility" at each other indefinitely when anyone complains about conditions. It was a little better before Company Y bought out Company Z, with whom Company X originally arranged the contract (Company Z was at least locally-based and had SOME image to consider), but overall it's just that the setup is Made Of Suck so far as the workers having any control over their lives or even input regarding whether what they're being told to do is reasonable or physically possible...
