Next Friday 29th June, there will be a national post strike for the first time in eleven years. This is most annoying for a variety of reasons, the main one being that I'm off work the very next week and could have dodged it all quite happily. I didn't vote for a strike, I don't want a strike and I'm still very very undecided on whether I personally will strike on that day.
To make matters slightly worse/more complex, I'd already warned my boss that I would most likely be in late that day due to the frelling electric company finally picking that day for yet another attempt at fixing my meter. I also had plans to work the Saturday afternoon directly after the strike, but can you just imagine how busy that will be now?
Option one : strike. Lose money, have an extra long week away from work, stand side by side with my fellow union members.
Option two : go in. Get the money, stand by what I believe in and not help the union who, over the last ten years, has managed to fuck up everything I've gone to them for help about.
My head hurts already.
