I wish I could clone some people. So much more could be accomplished. I have two really hard workers and the rest, well the rest just do the barest minimum. I was supposed to have a new person start the other day. She came in and filled out the application went through the interview and since she was the niece of a friend of mine I thought I could trust that she would be a good worker. I should have trusted my instincts instead of doing a favor for a friend. The young lady had my friend call me about a question and then when I called her back, she said she would be in shortly – about 20 minutes. She never showed up. Something could have happened, but I think my friend would have called me. The person I was sending her out with did her job as well as his. I just shake my head sometimes.
What makes people do what they do? The question both fascinates me and infuriates me. I know I have been lazy myself. Everyone has. But there is a time to be lazy and a time not to be and the time not to be is when you have a paying job. Get the job done and then you can rest. That’s how I was raised.
Time will see if this person works out or continues to be late or non-existent. I have a feeling that there are going to be issues, but I welcome the surprise.
