W1nners’ Club Problem Page – I refuse to give staff a payrise

  Dear Darcus, I’m the owner of a fairly successful company – well, I say successful but the reality is we’re not doing anywhere near as well as we should be. The point is, my staff keep threatening to leave but I refuse to award pay rises because I don’t want anyone to earn anything…

  Dear Darcus, I am a 54 year old Managing Director of a double glazing company in Somerset and ever since going to a Ziggy Marley concert back in 1991, I refuse to hire people if they haven’t got dreadlocks. It’s not that I don’t think people who aren’t Rastafarians can’t do the job properly,…

W1nners’ Club Problem Page – Addicted to sacking people

    Dear Darcus, I think I’m addicted to sacking people. The first time I had to let someone go I was terrified and didn’t know what to say to them, particularly when the ex-employee burst into tears but now I’m slightly embarrassed to say that I rather enjoy it. I sometimes find that I…

  Dear Darcus, I work in a small company that only has one staff toilet between six of us. Everytime I go to use the loo, there is always a steaming great log in the bowl that the person who used it beforehand has kindly left as an unsightly gift for me. I know that…

W1nners’ Club Problem Page – I think I have a crush on Mozart

    Dear Darcus, Ever since I started taking piano lessons, I seem to be developing a crush on Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Everytime I listen to the amazing music he composed, I can’t help but picture that little powdered wig of his bobbing up and down at a piano as he bangs out his latest…
