    • estatic tongue out  Ha!  You guys are no help at all.  

       This is one of my teammates I’m dealing with.  Can’t avoid him, have to deal with him.  He’s 55 years old!!!!!  Old enough to have some common sense.  

      The eighteen year old boys, I can overlook some of the dumb things they do because they are so young.  But a grown man.....

      I know I have some perfectionist bitch tendencies, but I had expected him to have caught on to his job better in the five months he’s been there.  Good grief when I was there five months, the little boss had me training new people already!

    • TL I come across this too. So I laugh it off with them and say either: Really? “You must be joking cuz I can’t believe that you don’t know. You‘re so silly” or “how in the world have you made it this far in life”  smiling or laughing while being said.
      I run into all kinds of stupid and it’s never my intent to hurt their feelings but there are times when you really just gotta call em on it!

    • Oh Mzd, I’m sure you get some doozies!!!  You too Vikki being in your line of work!

      That kinda puts things in perspective for me.  At least I don’t have to deal with the Public in my job.  I am everlastingly thankful and grateful for that.  I guess I can put up with one person’s limitations.

    • So he happens to be a slow learner that doesn’t mean he should be seen as stupid or treated disrespectfully. We all have a different pace and once he is finally able to perform better he may be an outstanding worker!

      You can’t compare what other people can do to what you‘re able to. Instead of complaining I would continue to teach him. Then if he never never ever catches on maybe it’s not the right job for him.

    • It’s definitely not the right job for him, but I don’t treat him disrespectfully.  

      He does not have it in him to be an outstanding worker, at least at our job. Maybe he was good at what he used to do, I don’t know.

        He’s the type of person who will say at 4:45 that he is going home.  He will put his coat on and stand around with his hands in his pockets for 15 minutes, milking the clock. I have no time or patience for people who will do that.

    • Got it. I hope he was told that work doesn’t end 15 min early. If he continues then it’s ADIOS.
