This is a little irritation that got under my skin yesterday.
My coworker is in her first post high school job, so I know this habit is mostly due to her inexperience.
By and large, she does show a very high level of maturity and responsibility and I am often impressed by her ability and initiative.
But once in a while, she "goes limp" and skips over don't things that may be too difficult or that she doesn't want to deal with.
It isn't an all-the-time thing and, as I said she is a very capable young lady, so when it does happen, it's obvious and annoying.
Yesterday it was the printer.
There are two printers on my floor and neither is my responsibility aside from asking Coworker to order more paper.
Coworker needed to use a printer for a specialized function. A minute later, she walked past my desk and said casually "Your printer is doing something funky. I went to copy and the light won't turn green and let me print."
And she kept going.
She didn't try to fix it. Or ask for help. Or ask to be shown how to fix it.
Just a 'drive-by-announcement', dumping the problem on me.
I said "Try checking the scan function to make sure it's online." And that fixed it.
I didn't expect her to know the intricacies of an unfamiliar machine, but I did expect more than just announce a problem and walk away from it. Hmmph.
