"You can't get someone in more trouble than they can gt themselves into."- Edgar Cayce

I try to follow that line of reasoning, and in most cases, found it to be true. Like the case of Mickey Weird.

Mickey Weird has worked at Wrongway for a couple of years now, first as a nurse extern, then when she flunked out of nursing school, as a tech. Mickey was personable enough in the beginning, but soon showed her lack of mettle. She was usually a half an hour late to her assigned unit. Then, she'd stand around and talk about personal matters for about 15 minutes.

Mickey challenged her assignment. She would escalate patient behaviors, intervening needlessly, or not assist at all when needed. I was leaving the hospital to go on break once, saw Mickey clock in late and, while on her cell, go back out to her car. Mickey was the last one on the unit but the first out the door. One time she left the unit and I found her down by the time clock, waiting down that last minute.

After Mickey failed to provide hygienic measures to a patient and escalated another patient's behavior, I refused to work with her, except on one occasion when it was either Mickey Weird or nobody.

There's a thread called "Profanity and Disrespect" that is telling the tale of my dealings with another rogue coworker. As Abraham Lincoln said during the 1861 Trent Affair: "One war at a time", so I was not proactive in bringing a lot of attention to Mickey's incompetence and misdoings at this time.

But I do make cartoons of situations, primarily in order to deal with the stress. This is an episode I submitted to the comic website of a situation which occurred in December 2018:

I was informed last weekend that "Mickey Weird is no longer employed by Wrongway".

And this is how I made note of it in my pocket journal:

Hopefully the house is getting deloused.  But I wouldn't bet on it.  Quite likely they'll replace the current rogue's gallery with new rogues.

Is she wearing Mickey Weird ears or growing cactii out the top of her head? I think I might have hired her years ago. She went to the gift shop once after her third break and just never came back.

She was lucky enough to have a job that got 3 breaks in one shift?  And she blew that?  Time for a factory job putting lids on jars.

Hmmmmmmmm! Davey, you are worrying me a bit.

As you say you have a problem documented on your other thread "Profanity and Disrespect" where you are detailing the failures of another co-worker.

Just a thought - when you keep coming across problem workers what is the common denominator?

And of course the answer is - you.

 

 

Sorry Davey, I could not resist. It was too easy a target.

😂😂🤣🤣🤣😂🤣

Well, as had been said, Grumpy, and I'm paraphrasing here a bit, "We're either the incompetent one or we have to deal with the incompetent one(s)."

I was complaining about all the idiots I kept meeting at work and my son pointed out that I was the common denominator and perhaps it was me that was the problem. I immediately cut him out of my will. 😂😂💷
