    Dismissed for swearing to myself 28th Nov 17 at 12:49 AM
    I just wanted some advice. I did work in a call centre taking sales over the phone which are monitored by more senior staff. I had a particularly frustrating customer and after the call ended I said phucks sake to myself in frustration which no one surrounding me heard. It was said to myself to vent, customer didnít hear it. Iíve worked here for only 2 months and today was instantly dismissed for this as a manager listened in the call even though the swearing was said to myself and directed at no one else . Iíve worked in many different places before this and it would never even be an issue. Iím pretty stunned and find it ridiculous. Was also insulted as was told it was unprofessional. Iím not bothered about working at the company anymore because I think it was stupid I got dismissed for such a minor thing but could this be construed as unfair dismissal? Iíve never experienced anything like this in any other job, Iím stunned.

  • Ah these care free days of watching #ENG score 5 goals in the first half of a World Cup match. It reminds me of... Never.

  • Then it should be. It's not some accident. It's deliberate grappling

  • Penalty yes but time someone was sent off for these wrestling moves #WorldCup
