Print Story not a lot to say

but I'm saying it anyway.

Here's my stupid rant for the night. I am training new woman at work. I am confident she understands how our work is to be done. Now I have given her some projects to do on her own. But I am frustrated with it all because she is so much slower than I would have been. I sure her speed and efficiency will increase as she does more work, but I hate having to share my work with her when I know I can get it done faster myself. Today I just wanted to throw something because I had to go behind her and clean up one of my shreadsheet reports. Breath in. Breath out. Breath in.  Enough of that.


I like going to my local Firestone station to get regular car maintaince done. The desk guys are friendly and cute. They are also a little flirtatious with me. Nothing over the top or inappropiate.  I assume the reason behind it is a good sales technique. I'm not ugly but I'm not in great form anymore. So my curiosity is wondering how many people using flirting in the work place to get the job done. Depending on what type of work, I am guessing it goes hand in hand with flattery and intimidation techniques. What do you think?

I'm so done with today (technically, yesterday) LAter

I use flirting, flattery and intimidation - what ever is necessary to get the job done. 99% of the time, there is nothing deeper behind it.

However, your milage might vary - and 1% is still 1%.
