Its official! Hundreds of thousands of us will die, there will be civil unrest, not enough food and we will be lucky to have jobs! Yay!

Honestly though why, even if you believe in Brexit as a project why would you start with the most extreme version of it? Weve left, make it an easy transition and ease away. Weve been in the EU 40 plus years you cant tear off the plaster and think it will be easier.

It was going to be the end of the world the last 10 times as well. Yet here we are, and the world still turns.

Billions has been spent making sure it isn't. We are losing so much for fishing (btw Harrods is worth more than or fishing industry), sovereignty and the right to choose (good joke with a superpower to the West, East and South) and turning Kent into another country full of lorry parks.

Nothing has really changed yet, January it will, we don't even have enough lorry permits, or pallets for them even if we did or the means to manufacture enough...

Getting it in the neck at work because someone else hasn’t done something that they were supposed to because “the lines of communication weren’t clear”.

I sent out the actions after the meeting via email and WhatsApp but the person with the action “didn’t see it”.
I'm the scumbag outlaw. You're the pillar of justice. Neither of us like looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do we have a deal?

Next time CC in their supervisor when you send out the action items and ask them to confirm receipt.

I agree. Passive aggressiveness is the only clear way forward here.

It's the only way. He is probably working remote, so physical aggressiveness is out of the question.

I agree that that would be advisable next time, however it wouldn't address the same problem that occurred with the previous communication, i.e. that the recipient didn't see it (or claimed not to have seen it). That could still happen this time, it would just give the benefit of proving to the supervisor that it was sent.

For me the fault lies with the supervisor. Company policy should state that a work email doubles as a task inbox and as such it is the responsibility of the email address owner to be aware of the items within it, thus rendering the "I didn't see it" defence as bollocks. The supervisor should not have allowed that excuse as acceptable and was wrong to blame BB.

But yeah until the supervisor pulls his/her head out of his/her arse do what hjl suggests and cover your tracks. Also issue further emails on a daily or hourly basis until you receive confirmation. That will add extra protection and piss off the recipients at the same time.
