Why do you care if your shop pays out, Ronnie?
Report ronnie rails May 19, 2024 5:34 PM BST
like to put how the shop is doing
Wonder why i bother
Report s.kenbo May 19, 2024 5:37 PM BST
Most the time you’re concerned about Corals paying out. You talk like it’s coming out of your pocket. Makes me wonder if you’re on some bonus related scheme. The shop wins you get a bonus. The shop loses you get Nowt. It’s the only logical explanation to me. Surly no staff would care unless it affects them financially?

There’s a new cashier in our local. She was telling me a few weeks ago how they ‘thankfully’ avoided a large winning bet on the virtual racing. His final leg in a Lucky 15 didn’t land. It cost them a few quid but thousands less than it could’ve been. Imo only the manager in the shop could’ve made her aware that they didn’t want the bet to land.

It’s a question I’ve asked a few times and you’ve always got defensive about it. You quite clearly want your paymasters beating your punters. No doubt handing out tea and biscuits with a smile while hoping they all lose.

What’s the ‘K’? I can grasp the rest of it.

Kenbo, have you never heard of loyalty to your employers, I know it's an alien concept to some people.
Report comingupthehill May 19, 2024 6:34 PM BST
Clearly the shop needs to make a profit,otherwise it would close.

A profit share,would encourage more drive,but if telling staff they’re great works,then why would they offer this.

From his posts,I’ve always thought it was his own shop
Report s.kenbo May 19, 2024 7:30 PM BST
Yes, Nogoody. You hope the better they do then the better you do. As a shop worker in a bookies though you’re inevitably going to strike up friendships with customers. How do you want them to fare? Lose every bet? Break even over the year? Are you taking bets with jovial banter while wishing them ‘good luck’ but inside hoping they lose?
What about the people doing their bollox on the machines? Are you secretly rubbing your hands together while outwardly showing concern to other punters about his/her problems?
If I worked in a bookies I’d be happy with people winning. If it affected my pocket then not so much.

Biggest c**t about shops is the sleeper rule. Been told from numerous shop gals they cannot tell customers about them.
What's that akin to in the real honest world?

I enjoy reading Ronnie’s posts on how the shops are doing. I’ve no doubt at all that he’s one of the good guys on here.

I just can’t fathom out why some shop staff begrudge paying out sometimes. It’s not coming out of their pocket and there’s nothing they can do to stop a winning bet happening.

The Brighton result was undoubtedly a good result anyway. Btts thwarted, overs thwarted. Throw in the Liverpool game and that will be plenty of accas down, even with all the high scoring games there were.

Not suggesting that at all if you can read properly but maybe as usual you just pick out the bit you don't like and ignore the main point with regard to Ronnie.

Yes you misunderstood the point of the debate. If you don't like bookmakers then don't use them instead of moaning about them all the time.
Report s.kenbo May 20, 2024 2:27 PM BST
Self employed my whole working life, Lochy. I’m not a forty year yes man to one firm!

Sparrow, if you’re happy betting win only or in the place market then the exchange can’t be beat. Most punters want a multi of some kind. That’s impossible to do on here so unfortunately bookies are needed by most of us. For a man who hasn’t bet with the bookies for thirty years you can’t keep away from a bookie thread without spouting the same lines every week.

Nearly all of us want bookie and exchange accounts. You are in a huge minority if you think otherwise.
Report themightymac May 20, 2024 2:31 PM BST
Ronnie is one of the best chaps on here. He has always made it clear that he worked for Corals.

When I put a bet on here, I hope that I win and whoever layed my bet loses. All punters do.

For every winner, shops or online, there are going to be losers.

If I worked in a betting shop and was on bonus, I would hope that nobody won and wiped my bonus out and so would 99% of us.

Personally, I don`t get the personal attack on Ronnie. Good luck all.

So long as your happy betting with bookmakers then so be it, kenbo. My complaint is against those who come on here time after time moaning about them. Ronnie as has been said is a decent poster who knows the score.
Report s.kenbo May 20, 2024 2:40 PM BST
I seem to have ruffled a few of your feathers. For the umpteenth time I’ve asked why he cares if the shop pays out. He has never answered this. If it’s because he’s loses out financially then I understand that. He won’t answer it though. Just tells me he doesn’t need money and also how much he has given to charity!

Any other shop manager care to say? Where’s Dealer, he’d answer without being offended.

Report jamee1 May 20, 2024 3:39 PM BST
When I worked a few hours a week for Corals early 2000s the manager, and probably assistant manager, were heavily bonused based on profit. Don't forget it's not just about the bets, you're managing a significant cost base too. Why would you run it any different? 

I can't remember if I qualified for any bonuses but absolutely would have been profit-based if they were. Plus as an employee clearly you wanted the branch to make money or you risk being closed and put out of a job.

Kenbo, I'm retired but do a few weeks a year on a job I like. I'm childminding a one year old a couple of days a week, possibly the most tiring job I've ever had, and the best.
I was hoping you were getting busy again, It can't be too long. I got into Vistry shares and they're on the up. Taylor Wimpey also but they're still treading water.

It can only be a grandchild if you like it that much!

I think the biggish local house builders around here were worried when the interest rates went so high. They thought they’d be stuck with houses that wouldn’t sell. Getting rid of subbies and making redundancies where necessary seems to have done enough to weather the storm. I imagine they’ve been on the phone to most gangs who went. It’s always a gamble getting rid just in case you can’t get anyone back.
