Having a decent supervisor really can and really does make the difference between having a good shift and having a very, very bad one.
And we aren’t talking here about the supervisor who is successfully bribed by the team who offer them copious amounts of tea and coffee during the shift in order to be treated ‘favourably’.
And neither are we talking about the supervisor who, despite telling shit jokes, everyone laughs at resulting in their ego being massaged enough that ‘special treatment’ will be afforded to whoever is able to laugh the loudest at jokes which normally only get shared at staff inductions (where you are forced to laugh, whether you want to not).
Instead, we are talking about the supervisor who everyone looks up to, because they are just a bloody good leader and because they are prepared to absorb the shit before the shit hits the men and women they lead.
So how can you tell if your supervisor is a good one?
By tagging them in this article and seeing whether they see the funny side of it or not….
If you tag them in this post and they end up giving you a shit posting for the night, then you know that they came under a ‘different’ category other than ‘good’ – just don’t blame us.
Try it now by adding their name in the comments below (if you are a ‘supervisor’ and you see you name below, then it means you are a ‘good egg’ and for that you should be proud):

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
