You do realize that you jinxed yourself when you said she seemed to be pretty much on the ball.Hang in there! Can you pass her off to Sugar?
Minnie sounds like a prepubescent girl.Maybe she really is =:O
Did Minnie have any experience before this job? What was she, a coffee test-subject? Tell her to grow a spine already!Then again, at least she's not Hummer!
"Fred, that lady in that car is back again. And she's always on the phone!""Maybe her car broke down. I'll go see if she needs help."
Polly.. maybe she should get your job. And you should get the ME's job. After the 19th call in less than 6 hours, Stinky Jimmy will realise what a saint you were to put up with her. I, personally, would have driven to wherever she is and shot her by now, just to put the world out of its misery.
Still not as bad as Hummer!
I know what you mean about people afraid to make a decision. When I was in charge of our USAF squadron's vehicles we had this reservist who would come in and say, "Could you verify my dipstick readings?" I heard you're going to be at Bouchercon. That's great. I want to meet you and thank you for the great blog.
wow, just finished reading your blog archives from the beginning. Polly, you have an amazing way with words that always touchs the heart. Plus, your funny in the cutest ways. I think I might have a crush on you. Anyway, thanks for all the great slices of your life
"Polly, I have to pee. Can I?""No Minnie, hold it until the end of your shift."
I had a bad feeling about this woman from the moment I read that her name is Minnie.((((Polly)))) Hang in there. Eat some ice cream and have a MOATarita and you'll be fine.
heh! Training new employees..I've been there...although I must say, it hasn't been this bad. Close, but not this bad.
When you speak to her ... speak in rhyme. And start every sentence with like.Like, I wish I could help youLike, Cause we all know you're newLike, I know how hard it can beLike, to have to ask if you can go peeLike, perhaps you could try stepping up to the plateLike, instead of calling me at hours too lateLike, and then leave me the heck aloneLike, and act like a woman who's already grown Like, and maybe use your prepubescent headLike, before you call and get my ass out of bed.So and and so forth ... maybe throw in a haiku once in a while ... see how quickly you can drive her to drink. It could be, like, a game, like. :-)
"Fred, that lady in that car is STILL here. And on the phone again!""Well, she said her car was fine and IF I had any questions I should call the cops. But every time I call them their line is busy."
Luis,Welcome to the blog! :-) Nice to hear from you. Glad to flush you out of blurkdom.
