We've been having a whole slew of these this week. It's mainly been people who either don't show up to work, or will show up very late with excuses like, "I was up late". Okey doke then. The one who's really taking the cake lately is person who, when a supervisor is giving instruction to another worker, will interrupt the supervisor and talk over said supervisor to tell the co-worker what he/she should really be doing. Which is just great, considering Talky Todd has never done what we we do before, and is still in training himself.
Talky Todd also performed his set tasks incorrectly, and when politlely asked to re-do the work, said he knew they were wrong the whole time, just turned it in as a completed product anyway. Uhhhh... why?! Supervisor attempting to help Talky Todd learn his appropriate tasks is talked over and argued with until Supervisor gives up and says, "Fine, you know everything, I'll let Higher Supervisor know that everything you do can get sent to him, and he can take care of it." Higher Supervisor does not tolerate fools, and Talky Todd has been digging his own employment grave since his first day, which is when he first interrupted his primary Supervisor to tell a subordinate what to do.
Oh, Talky Todd also told a co-worker that because he's so intelligent and well-read, most people are very intimidated by him. Seriously, Todd? Seriously.
