Ollie Onion,

This is the problem with mainstream media. They give us the mushroom treatment.

Oh yeah don’t marry a gold digger and definitely don’t get divorced. Does she love me because I’ve got four bars on my uniform? 😁
I always viewed financial advisors as being a bit dodgy but a good one will make/save you 10 times what you pay him. If only I’d swallowed my pride 20 years ago and got one onboard.
Apologies for the thread creep just wanted to put it out there.......be proactive with your money. GLA
Couldn't agree more aileron. Live well within your means, load yourself up with assets, get rid of the liabilities. It is not rocket science FFS.

A kind bit of advice for our European friends. Please use the word "Fired" carefully. It does not translate to "lost a job".

Fired (also known as "sacked") - Usually used in reference to someone losing their job due to poor performance on the job, due to an incident as a result of negligence (willful or not), or due to something in contravention to HR policies or the law (harassment or assault).

Redundancy (made redundant) or Layoff (laid off) - The company has decided that due to lack of demand, financial issues, economic reasons or efficiency requirements, they have to get rid of your position (not necessarily get rid of you).

Furlough - A temporary layoff from work. People who get furloughed usually get to return to their job after a furlough.

Some (most?) of the places in Europe have no different words to describe those things. You are fired then you are fired, no one cares why. And no such thing as being furloughed, either you are employed or not.

@superpilot Thank you, old posts edited accordingly. A "de-employment" does happen in various ways, why not call them the respective names. Speaking proper terminology is a basis for effective communication, one of the required CRM skills.

E.g. many languages only have one word for safety and security. It is enjoyable working with people who went the extra mile, learned to apply those discriminately. Sorry for the aviation content.

Grammar is very important, it is the difference between helping your uncle, Jack, off a horse, and helping your uncle, Jack off, a horse.

So correct punctuation is not as important as grammar? Sorry couldn't resist.

Operating at 100% capacity and looking to add more tails to the fleet. It's a cargo operator obviously.
