Random Question - Glasses

Post by JCOX4 » Sun Nov 15, 2020 3:52 pm

Afternoon, bit of a random question that I've thought of today. Say my glasses 👓 where broken during a c&r situation would it be down to me to buy new ones or would the service cover the cost of new ones?

I would have thought that you have to pay yourself as the service need to keep their pennies to go towards the funeral of the Yorkshire ripper 🤨 ?!

I wear glasses but I would think if you asked them to pay for them they'd tell you where to go 🤣

You know where I'm coming from when I say they ain't cheap to replace then Taff. That's the answer I was expecting but you never know. Maybe contacts are the way forward for work then from now on.

Bear, I have a shovel and am pretty good at digging so I could always save them a few quid!
