No Christmas dreams for Ford employees.

After they renewed my faith with the release of such a top vehicle , Ford have now shattered my Christmas dreams . Thanks to the high demand of the BA series , they are running production throughout the Christmas/New years period .
As my company is a principal supplier to Ford , I am now told there is no Christmas break for me.

I know the BA is a great car , but I want my Chrissy break . Dirty bastards.

Re: No Christmas dreams for Ford employees.

I agree with you . The rates are bloody good , but i'd rather be sitting on the banks of the Murray drinking cans .

Re: No Christmas dreams for Ford employees.

Sounds like my Xmas break, because summer is my busiest time i have to work staright through and its a pain in the ass cos all your friend are on holidays and you're working, and what pisses me off more is when it slows down in winter, im at home while everyone is at work.

Re: No Christmas dreams for Ford employees.

I feel for ya. Where I work, we also run right through Christmas and the summer holidays. I had no choice over having last Christmas and New Year's off. It's a bitch.

Re: No Christmas dreams for Ford employees.

Try being on 24hour call over the break, and not seeing any cash in hand. Then again I ended up on call for 6 months straight! Oh and I was the only person on call for the organisation south of Sydney, apart from the towies.
