    My boss asked me to sit in with them when he went over the issues on the spreadsheet. She sat with her arms crossed and gave that "mhmm" answer to everything he asked her. He asked if she had any questions, she said no, he said good, and she got up and walked out.

    This is eerily similar to the last coworker and our meeting in the library. I hope she comes to work tomorrow. Mostly. I'm about 80/20 on that right now.

    Polk, I'm still considering my Jem cosplay for the next DCC. Wig, light-up earrings have been located. Makeup is easy. The costume is my issue. I will continue considering it.

    How. Long before the big boys decide she "isn't working out'?

    I have one employee were fixing to transfer to a slower store because this person is not picking up the process in a meaningful way.

    I don't know. The state has all kinds of rules. I do know he was told to keep a file of her problems, to communicate with her by email so there is a record, that kind of thing. Because you can't just let her go, you have to present a case, and it has to be first approved by our resident director, and then by the agency director in conjunction with HR. But he feels sympathetic for her-she has a young son, she's going through a divorce, she just got an apartment because "my mom doesn't understand that I'm not a little girl anymore!" Now, I don't have an issue with her moving out on her own, of course that should be her goal, but the problem seems to be that she wants to go out with her new boyfriend all the time, and expects her parents to watch her son, and she doesn't pay rent or anything else to the bills, yet expects to be able to do whatever the hell she feels like, and her mom doesn't agree. I'm clearly on the mother's side and that makes me feel old. I should look at it as responsible adult, but old is more appropriate. He also knows her parents. So he's hesitant to do anything, plus he knows how hard it was on me to do both jobs, and we are gearing up for the end of the fiscal year budget issues.

    Personally, I think if he had been stricter with her in the beginning, we would be in better shape. She still wouldn't be able to spell, but maybe she'd be more receptive to learning. Just like today-she shut her door to pout, and instead of going back in there and telling her that her door is to be open during business hours, as he's told her before, he's letting it go. And it's not a big deal, I guess, but there's going to come a day when one of us has to open it to get at some file, and she's going to get mad because it wasn't an issue last time.

    If I didn't know it was such a pain in the ass for your, I'd be laughing at your coworker's stupidness.

    I truly believe that she has a learning disorder that is either undiagnosed or that she refuses to deal with. Like dyslexia or something. I feel bad for her, but DAMN.

    And if she had a better attitude about it, I'd be more sympathetic. "I know I can't spell" or "I know I can't add or subtract" or "I feel so terrible that I'm still having trouble." Instead she argues that she did it correctly, or ignores you when you point out a problem, or my personal favorite (please note the sarcasm), that she is learning this information for the first time today!
