We need a "work related horror stories" forum for things like this.

I think George has changed his name and works at my job now.

You know, an answering service staffed by a dozen blind rhesus monkeys with simian hemorrhagic fever could do a better job screening calls than George does

George reminds me of a departmental assistant we had in IT at one place I worked.

One of the Novell servers had crashed, and the Novell people in Utah had asked me to send them the memory dump on diskettes as fast as possible. (This was back in '90 or '91 when CD toasters were still very rare if not nonexistent.)

Anyway, having been up all night nursing various things back into shape, when she came in to work at 8am, I handed her the box of disks, and a piece of paper with all the required information, address, name of the tech expecting the disks, phone numbers etc, and said "Edith(*), can you send this (pointing at the box) to this guy (pointing at the piece of paper) ASAP?"

"Sure," she says.

So, I leave her office and go about my humble tasks. Quite some time after lunch (like, around 2pm, or 6 hours after my original request), she comes up to me, and asks, "André, I can't find ASAP anywhere in the phone book, is it okay if I use DHL or TNT or FedEx instead?"

I'm still at a loss for words over 10 years later...




(*) Name not changed in order to avoid protecing the terminally braindead.

Andredien,
You did good for a puter head. You are a very nice and humble
person that deserves a Raise. Now get over it! and stop talking
about my Ex.

I like that link. I want MORE !


Zolmaz.
