A 58-year-old employee aired his career-long frustrations on his entire company moments before retiring.

Michael Stuban worked for the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission for 35 years, but was asked to fill in a leaving form before he left his role - and he did not hold back.

He wrote: "I really didn't want to retire yet. I like my job. The first 30 years were great, but the last five years were terrible. (10 years as a toll collector, during which I served a few years as a union officer, 25 years in management)."

In a reply sent to everyone in the company, Stuban moaned: "Giving us classes where we are being told we are not political. That's bull****. Positions created for people who are not qualified. Hiring people off the street when we have qualified [personnel] in our ranks."

A mum of three plans to spend in excess of PS1,500 on her kids this Christmas.

Emma Tapping was widely criticised on social media in 2015 after she bought nearly 300 gifts and splashed out an eye-watering PS1,500 on her children - but she is determined to do Christmas even bigger and better this year.

She said, according to The Sun newspaper: "What I love about Christmas is the magic of it, and it's family time for me, it's about being with my loved ones and I love seeing their faces when I give them gifts.

"I do go overboard at Christmas, definitely. It's loads of pressies, loads of food, stuffing your face and just relaxing, having a good old day.

"I think they had about 85 presents each last year. This year they've got about 96 each, so they've got a few more bits."
