This nice lady above, Alison Birch, runs a uni-sex hair salon in Stroud Gloucestershire UK.
She was looking for a new hairdresser and gave an advert to her local Job Centre.; she was looking for a well qualified 'happy friendly stylist'.
Well, as they say, you couldn't make it up. The PC folk at the Job Centre refused to take her advert' because it discriminated against unhappy people.
Of course Ms Birch thought they were having a joke; but no, they really were serious. No longer is she allowed to employ 100% happy crimpers, she must now employ a few miserable ones as well.
You really couldn't make it up!
That is really hard to believe although I would be happy to have a miserable haircutter who didn't talk incessantly.ReplyDelete
I prefer the happy chatty kind, which is why I always cut my own hair.Delete
I’m sure nobody would accuse you of making things up Cro 😊ReplyDelete
I’ve never met (or been serviced by) a miserable haircutter. Quiet yes.... Overly happy and very happy.....but not miserable.
Well, Cathy, now's your chance. Go to Stroud and ask for Ms Birch's salon. She'll soon have a whole bunch of officially miserable crimpers; all sent by the Job Centre.Delete
She should have asked for a disabled gay black Muslim with a police record. The Job Centre would have rubber-stamped that straight away.ReplyDelete
Sadly, I suspect you're right; even if they couldn't cut hair!Delete
Yorkshire Pudding, I LOVE your comment! But please do not forget next time the "*" which we have to use in Germany to include the in-between-genders.Delete
"muslim*In", please - There's got to be time for that!
So the Job Centre says you can't discriminate against unhappy people but it's OK to discriminate against unfriendly people?ReplyDelete
I think the only people you can't discriminate against are the people who dream-up these crazy PC ideas.Delete
The world's gone mad.ReplyDelete
That made my day, Cro - it starts well with a good laugh - hahahahaha!ReplyDelete
In Germany it would not be THAT EASY - no, if you now want to hire "someone", you have to write (no joke!):
Friseur * In -
- that includes man (Friseur, haircutter),
* = the gender in-between male and female, there must be zillions I didn't notice before,
- and "In" for female.
It is very tiring if you read a modern book, newspaper text with all these additions, every time - grrrrrrr..
Oh dear, we'll have to start a world-wide anti PC movement.Delete
My friend and I were talking about that yesterday .... it’s just all getting ridiculous now. Apparentley they want to ban Mary Poppins now because Dick Van Dyke was made up with a black face ...... HE WAS A SWEEP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! XXXXReplyDelete
White faced clowns will be next.Delete
Specifying a hair stylist discriminates against nuclear physicists or refuse disposal operatives who might wish to apply.ReplyDelete
What about us baldies (me); we need extra special care.Delete
I braved it 10 days ago and got a hair cut. My hairdresser was very friendly which I have found in my long life to always be the case. Tips are their bread and butter and friendly is a necessary trait.ReplyDelete
No tips for 'old misery' then!Delete
Where can I buy a gun? I am so, so thoroughly fed up with it all.ReplyDelete
US states, many without any checks at allDelete
All this foolishness takes attention away from what is important. Common sense no longer exists.ReplyDelete
That, sadly is very true; take 'climate change' for example! Too many fools ruining what otherwise is a worthy cause.Delete
Thanks, Cro. I needed a laugh this morning...ReplyDelete
Laugh or cry; toss a coin.Delete
As you mentioned Alison is a nice lady, and I ought to know as she cuts my hair.ReplyDelete
How wonderful; do send my best wishes when you next have your hair cut.Delete
There is one group which you can and almost have to discriminate again: old white men! They seem to be the root of all evil.ReplyDelete
