    Nepotism, I've never been drawn to it, but in rugby, basket ball and young enterprise which both my kids did in their younger days it was rife. In employment it can be debilitating when managers employ their family members. It's one big piss off. Tell your grandson to move on and use his given talent with those that value and appreciate it!! Tell him I wish good luck!
    Thanks Maca although I don't know what makes you think you will out live me you geriatric old bugger.

Parents were "summoned" and the situation explained....Then Mum asked how her son had returned (midweek no less) from a School trip (week excursion) and vandalised a desk when he was under another teachers direct supervision. I can vouch that Mums can be very effective when their sons (or daughters) are involved. (as it truns out the student that had "told on" my brother was actually the culprit and he was trying to get my brother into trouble as a form of bullying...)

    I hope your grandson is able to perform, but more importantly I am very glad to hear he has learned solid values, that are too often missing in today's world. Apparently he has learnt better than the teacher....
    Unfortunately he won't be performing on this occasion but you are right. As he tells it, when he was very publicly embarrassed in front of his group he suppressed the urge to punch the teacher, held his head up and walked away. Even in the heat of that moment he gave good example to his fellow students. I am hugely proud of his conduct.

    This is rife in both European and particularly Maori. I coached high school 1xv for 4 years and every year I was asked by the school to make sure that the captain was a member of a certain tribe as they were the schools main sponsor, and every year I said nah, team pick. The son had trials for the BOP Under 16 and under 18's, he stood out as worthy of a placement but not enough Maori in him despite his ancestry, to blond. Similar in the Daughters netball, so blatant, as the coach for that was a member of the same tribe and at prize giving all the useless fucks shone as the achievers, what a load of crap. C'est la vei

    That's how it was done with my boys soccer squad. All the boys chose the top 3 per game along with the coaches. At the end of tournament all points were tallied up and the highest got the prize

    Problem is that the "dad" usually has a higher opinion of his sons abilities and probably thinks that his son is best. They see the world through different coloured glasses....

    Yep but depends on who has the final say, never employed my family, or an employees family member or close friend, never re employed someone who has left, always been happy for an employee to leave me for greener fields, but have been told I have strange ideas in running a business. Works for me

    You are right of course Pointer but I have a propensity to become incensed by injustices and that tendency becomes acute when the subject of the injustice is family.

    Good lesson for him Rushy, not all playing fields are level, gives him a good lesson in arseholes, and I'm sure this won't be the only one he ever meets, but he's handled it well and will grow from it because of his attitude. Wonder where he gets that from?
