            My 5 yrs.. well...was swept under the carpet..cash bonus 2 wks leave...noice ok

            My 7 years was seen by some as a good time to wage emotional war on me to make me leave..cost saving so my direct senior could get the bonus he was promised...using my bonus...mmmmm that's not great..

            Change of management/company absorbed by a bigger company... they carry all my LSL over 10 yrs.3 mnths off and a crystal decanter ( just as I stopped drinking..)

            Nah haven't taken it yet..have a few sickies accumulated as well as general annual leave. 4 - 6 mnths off at full pay.(I really need to check into that.. )..NOICE

              • I've got over 300 sick days owing to me. They'll go up in a puff of smoke when I retire. Unless I get sick soon... or maybe stressed... hmmm. I need to find someone to bully me, or sexually harass me.

                  I reckon you'd be a shoe in for "stress leave" I'm surprised by the numbers of people I work with that have taken it and I'm sure a lot didn't need it

                    WTF, are you bullying me... I'm sure you're bullying me ... I'm feeling stressed ... maybe you are sexually harrassing me ... I think I need to take 6 months off.

                    Hang on I don't want to take stress leave in winter! Can you come back and bully me in October. Put it it in you calendar.

                        • I am in the middle of one of the worst customer experiences of my life. Last November I had solar panels installed with a fronius inverter. By all accounts it is the best inverter I could get. From the first day it has been so loud I can hear the constant humming of an electric motor and fans inside my house. In the kitchen, living room and bedrooms. I can't sit outside and enjoy peace in my garden anymore. Words cannot describe how much I hate this thing. The warranty can only be registered online and the online system won't recognize my email address as legit so I can't even register for a fucking warranty. The manufacturer doesn't give a shit they say its the installers problem, the installer wants $1300 to replace it. Fuck them all. Do yourselves a favour and don't use fronius inverters.

                          • ^^I think we have one of those ones.

                            It is in the garage and is noisier on hot days as the cooling fans ramp up but can only hear it on those days as I go into the garage.

                            Hear nothing in the rest of the house.

                            Where is it?
                            Is it too small for the system?
                            Try putting a fan near it to blow more air over it and see if it changes down a gear or two. This would point to a definite problem.

                            Our installer set up our email and warranty stuff.

                            • Who installed it and what is it mounted to?

                              They are the best brand going at the moment.

                              • I disagree. I thought being made in Germany it would be well built and long lasting. It has cooling fans that are so loud I have actually turned the system off now. Its just bolted to a brick wall. It shouldn't be like this, I don't remember ever hating a product so much
