    If that pic shows her as gothic, things have changed really fast. Put her in the uniform and she would look like any other attendant.

    Goths **** me.

    I reckon they should have spray-painted her in rainbow colours, whacked a tie-dyed skirt on her and sent her packing.

    Bloody Goths. Should all be stuck in a chalk circle with an Illigor.

    You have to hand it to Jetstar. They manage to keep up entertained fairly regularly. :D

    Ah, Shillard.

    Nice to see that you're up to your usual friendly, tolerant self.

    Hope that your daughter(s), should they be unfortunate enough to have you as a father, don't turn out to be goths.

    My finger is on the emergency button on my phone at this moment to call the NSW police.

    :)

    My son can shag goths if he likes, but if he brings one home there will be hell to pay.

    Nice to see you are not being gender specific regarding who your son can shag.

    ROTHLHOL, I amost wet myself as I read those posts.

    I am really looking forward to shillard's next post, like thadocta. should be quite viciferous, littered with expletives, unless he's mellowing in his new age as a father :p . Considering that his son is <1 year old, I'd hate to think that Goths would still be around when he's sexually active..and just why shillard would be happy with his son shagging goths (in case there's an accident :roll: - that'd make it half-goth :shock: ), but I presume he'll give his son the birds 'n' bees talk very early on...

    Got the fire extinguisher out, primed and ready...issued my flame proofs too... :twisted: - just in case anybody needs my assistance. You with me thadocta?? (looking around for support :D )

    Spin is quite interesting; a little bird has told me her supervisor erred in mentioning 'gothic' too her. The media picked on this, failing to refer to other issues that were listed in her notice of dismissal.

    Mentioned/quoted were several specific incidents relating to poor attendance and other issues relating to attitude and other non compliance problems. I have been told she had several official warnings.

    Are these things mutually exclusive? Perhaps the supervisor was summing up the attendance, attitude and compliance issues into a single word?

    Don't Goths go out in a blaze of glory at 21?

    Before this thread gets out of hand and ends up locked, here is Jetstar's response. (It's a PDF, but only only 32KB)

    I'll reproduce it below - I don't think Jetstar would mind:

    What a perfect reponse from Jetstar....Brooke might have "served" well by using the media to portray her as a "victim", but "game, set and bloody match" to Jetstar!! :twisted:

    You started the fight girlie, but as you left Jetstar with an open position, they finished you. I applaud Jetstar and they've gone up in my estimation.

    Time for Brooke to go and be an advertising starlet if she'd rather do that (not that one ad is much) :roll: , and let somebody else who wants to work, have an opportunity to be employed 8) .

    Imagine how many pax were inconvenienced by her late arrivals at work, as well as her staff who had to cover for her. Sorry, she gets no respect from me :p .

    Sorry, I'd rather be served by somebody who's there on time, has the right attitude and respects her job, her fellow staff, her clients (pax) and more importantly, herself.

    I hope she learns some apparently much needed lessons from this incident.

    There's the literal, and then there's the figurative.

    For the former, goths of the fairer sex are obviously preferred.

    For the latter, any of the proletariat will do.

    Pleased to see you are keeping an open mind on the issue.

    I totally agree, thadocta. Gutted, absolutely guttered :(

    Particularly as I read some comments from him on his website yesterday....
