quitters.

January 23, 2008

brood is a quitter, but in a posative moving-up-in-the-world-independent way. good for her.

crazy new girl, on the other hand, called it quits in a i-can’t-deal-with-authority-only-hurt-myself kind of way. she has fallen back into the unemployed middle-aged-woman-living-in-her-parent’s-house lifestyle. i knew it wouldn’t work from the interview, but as my regular readers may recall (past post here), my boss gave me no decision in the matter of hiring her.

i asked her, in a very pleasant manner, to keep her voice level down, in order to comply with hippa regulations by not spilling gory details of private patient matters into the hallways and waiting room. she told me that it was not possible to speak in a lower tone, she was taught to raise her voice and be heard. i said that it was not appropriate for our office environment to speak so loud while dealing with patient information. i told her that she needed to try to improve, she said that maybe she should just leave. i told her that it was her choice, but wouldn’t it just be better to try to improve? she really made it hard to be encouraging. clearly she was unhappy because she left right then and there.

it was nice to have an extra set of hands in an office where we all feel like we are working double time and still loosing distance. but that was all she was: an extra pair of hands. no big loss.
