Holy Crap!

I have a temp worker today processing some asset transfers for the company.
I have had to tell her the same thing 5 times in less than 10 minutes. She apparently has no thought processes. none.

Send it back to the temp agency and ask for a replacement.

Yes- do it before lunch. They are too expensive for you to get a dumb one.

Think that is bad, trying doing tech support. Enough of the pissing contest though. It is all just sad proof that people can get away with wearing Rectum colored glasses.

Does she have 3 first names, something like Mary-Jo-Beth?

At least yours is a temp. I have have one that is permanent and management refuses to do anything about her cause she had a stroke on site a couple of years ago and is afraid she is going to sue them. Could happen to be all the fried food and crap she eats, no, it's just the work enviro.

The next time you tell her something, give her three chances to get it. Then smack her upside the head.

Do what I do. Call the temp agency and request an RMA for defective product. I only had to do that once for them to realize not to send me any more idiots.
