Look, I don't think I'm any better than anyone else.

But some people are just unreliable due to a lack of intelligence. That doesn't make them any worse of a person though.

I'm experiencing that today. How ****ing hard is it to use a measuring tape?!?!?!?!??! :mad:

I ended up having to interrupt the poor guy about 5 times to get the answers I needed.
I felt bad for doing this but I had to get the job done.

Anyways, does the pit have any dumbasses at their workplace?

If so, how did you deal with them?

I patronise them as much as I possibly can. I provide an educational service.

Used to work in an office, and I remember the office snitch being the worst.

"Oh did you hear what so n so said about you?"

"Oooo the boss is pissed with you!"

etc. was balls. Offices suck soooo hard

I would do this but the guy is black and has threatened to sue the company for racial reasons whenever anyone tells him he's doing a bad job.

We have another black guy that works here, and he does his job well. NO ONE bitches at him.

No one here is racist.

Wait... You interrupted him to figure out how to use a tape measurer, the easiest tool to use ever... So you want us to come up with ways that you can tell him to deal with your dumbassery? Or did you misphrase your original post?

The price for incompetence within the empire is great.

Plus, all my minions have began looking at these earth workplaces and they've started to get these crazy ideas in their heads like unions, mandatory work breaks, safety inspections...blah...and I'm like what. the. hell. Are you kidding me? The first few I dealt with accordingly, but seriously, they whine and moan about this crap all. the. time. Do they just not see that all of that impedes what I'm trying to accomplish?

Well, that makes sense in your line of work. You can't really afford for people to be dumbasses. Shit breaks down and you've got many lost lives on your hand?

I work with the public so my day is spent dealing with dumbasses.

I normally try reason, but when they are off their face on drugs and getting angry I usually just go back of house and get secuity to throw them out.

Get them to work together. Maybe the guy who does his job well will sort him out. Or maybe stupid is contagious, in which case you're all screwed.

If he can convince a lawyer that the complaint is racially motivated, then he can. And many lawyers will believe him because he is black.

When I worked at a fast food place I'd get dumbasses all the time... They'd come up to the counter without reading the menu and then just take forever and ask me about everything. Now I work in a clothing store and it's just as bad, people are pretty rude and mess up the clothes I fold.
Of course, I value the money I get for these jobs, so I just have to use alittle self-control and just ignore them and put a smile on my face while I help them along. I don't mind really. Soon I'll be in the Navy and won't have to deal with any customers at all!

Same thing with me when I worked for Subway. My co-workers were actually really cool though. They were the only source of sanity in that hellhole.

report them to a manager if the problem persists or teach them how to do it. some people are just plain idiots.

i had people at my work who couldn't clean tables or wash dishes right.

I have a suspicion that this is happening.

He's screwed up so many times it's unbelievable.

The worst part is that he's not very good at explaining things. I kinda feel bad for the guy but it's a dog eat dog world.
