Day 23 – The Necessity of Love and Care

That is, the care for human life, beyond any opinion or political persuasion – certainly not indifference!

Julian Metcalfe went on Twitter to try and fix a “situation” he did to Pret. Ooops.

But he was pulled out too early. Unfortunately. Nevermind.

Pret lives what Metcalfe spilled the beans on. But being thick as thieves means you gotta fix it. No?

But fixing it meant, you messed it up further. And the press remains silent as usual, because they can’t claim to be the author or interviewer. Shame.



There was a frantic meeting, phone calls, some emails, in-person mild “conversations” … and off they went. Business as usual.

Metcalfe has a heart. His heart beats for his fellow opportunistic, greedy, capitalist, panicked, spoiled prats … .com

If you can spot the connection between the following connections … you made it, just about. Because these people got off the hook again.

The Necessity


The Cost



The Price


… Love and care down the drains.



I worked at Pret A Manger and survived systemic workplace bullying during bereavement that involved HR, the top leadership, HQ and even the now “retired” former CEO Clive Schlee. I declined 4 settlement offers if I am silent about my ordeal. But I rather speak out to help others. For an overview of important blog entries of my experience with Pret, please visit “My Ordeal with Pret A Manger”. The little arrow to the right next to each heading will lead directly to the post.
An incomplete list on what other Pret staff say about Pret’s bullying environment: Caught in the Act Bullying at Pret.
I tell my story for the first time verbally in below audio player interview on a podcast by The Adam Paradox, and wrote two articles in the Scottish Left Review.

Thank you for reading/listening.
