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):
Before you go...
We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
