So lately I've been hearing lots (believe me- LOTS) of stories about different people in different positions and how they just have NO IDEA of how to do their job. Not sure if its padding their resumes, faking interviews,
I'm not quite sure what this persons deal is as I have yet to met him/her. Can't wait, by the way.
So I just don't GET what all the problems are. Is it blatant defiance on New Person's part to be 100% opposite of Old Person? Does New Person have the mentality of "Anything you can do, I can do better" but NOT REALLY succeeding at that? At all. Or are they really just inferior to Old Person? Maybe they just can't hack it? Maybe they are drowning in the ocean of responsibilities that only the amazingly talented and experienced can be successful at. Maybe the company just had to take SOMEBODY and that was their luck of the draw. Who knows. (Ouch. That was kind of mean. Bad Kristi. Picture me slapping my hand.)
One thing that I don't understand is how New Person can justify completely ignoring emails and phone calls. If you don't know the answer, then respond back and say that. Or say that you are looking in to it. Or that you are working on it. Or its not you that handles it, its so-and-so and pass it off. But to completely IGNORE multiple attempts of contact "just because" is complete bullshit. I'm pretty sure you have a Blackberry. USE it. You are NOT that busy that you can't respond to one of numerous emails. Old Person had no problem with that. Old Person was there at any time of day to handle everything. Old Person was the bomb. Like tick tick BOOM!
New Person will NEVER live up to Old Person
By the way, this spinach and artichoke pizza I'm eating right now is DIVINE!!!! Yum.
