    Default Maternity Leave !!!

    Scored a Service Delivery contract for 6 months. Previous occupant was a contractor who has left to drop a sprog. All well and good, except I think they already have her pencilled in to come back in. Ok, she had been here a while, lots of friends etc. She left a week earlier than expected, took her pass, desk key. This has now been retrieved by someone who went to see the 'new arrival' (barf). She has asked for some things to be taken to her, discussion in the office, leave the rest of her stuff in the desk drawers and give her the key back !!!! WTF, she lets some 'wayne' blow his beans up her and they keep the job open ?? She did a reasonable job but there is tulip loads of PMP, Business cases, S/OLA work that was going on for months and not completed, which I am doing.
    How about they consider the role after 5 months and make a business decision based on my performance in the role and implications of her coming back i.e. 6 month old AB in tow, sleepless nights, can't come in it's coughed etc
    Right, going to get all this work done and mint, give them something to think about - NOT HAPPY, she dropped a kid and the ball and now I have to hand it back.

    WTF are you on about?

    We like irrational, knee jerk, sensationalist headlines here.

    Please rephrase, something like

    Oh Dear - Bint drops sprog and project. Socialist policies attack "hard working" IT contractor. Immigration is key says minister.

    Wait 3 months and then you go on maternity leave...
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    I'm guessing they've realised you're an ahole? It only took a few sentences for me to work that out!
