The greenkeeper shot the apprentice
If one of your greenkeepers decided to shoot an apprentice with an air rifle, you’d assume it’d be okay to give them their marching orders, right?
Not so fast…
One of our clients decided to sign up with us having lost a big tribunal case based on exactly this transgression.
At first glance, it was difficult to see why they’d lost, but when we delved a little deeper, it all became clear.
The greenkeeper in question was out in the woods, with two colleagues and an apprentice, when they stumbled upon an air rifle.
Instead of leaving it where it was and calling the police, they decided to pick it up and use the age old, failsafe method to work out if it was loaded.
Yes, that’s right, by pulling the trigger.
While aiming at the apprentice’s buttocks.
