I think the club sound really mean, and are trying to get out of paying using any cheap trick they can
If I was in their shoes and felt really strongly about their ages, I would have paid it, and had a word afterwards about it .. thereby keeping good faith, as I believe that is important, and as I said,.. the job got done, and they got their cover after all.
Unless they specified the training level of every crew member beforehand, part of the fault is theirs as I see it or at least perhaps they should accept the consequences of not doing so... IMVVHO
Will the bench now pass me black hat for sentencing
