There are days when I am ready to freak out on someone. It seems that I am trying to tell them something and they`re insisting on chattering like a mindless robot. Gets so that I want to hit them with something, grab them by the ears and scream very loudly to shut up and hear me out.
Today was one of them. The guy I was working with is being trained by me. He kept interrupting and then would try to talk over me. I had had enough of him at this point as very simple tasks are becoming very complicated with him and to add insult to injury, we`re on a limited time schedule. When we don`t meet schedule, I have to explain to the boss and he does the same thing.
I finally told the guy today to `let me finish please` and to me, it sounded like I was talking through gritted teeth. Had to do this a few times. Was really pissing me off. Spoke with another co-worker and she had the same issue with him so I know it is not me. The sad part is that the stuff I was training him on (or shall I say 'trying to train him on'), was the same stuff I had trained him on last week and the week before. And yes, it was also the same stuff that both of my other co-workers were trying to train him on as well. What really pissed me off is that he would then do the job correctly, and then about fifteen minutes later, would be asking the same questions and it`s back to square one and I have too many other things that need to be done as well.
I wonder if either he is playing stupid to get out of pulling his fair share of the load (which I`m not letting him get away with), or this guy is deliberately causing trouble?
Either way, I`m keeping a log. Yes, I have to work with him again tomorrow and if this happens again, I am putting in an official complaint to the office and telling them in plain terms that I don`t want to work with him any more. Fortunately I`m licensed (he`s not), so hopefully this will carry weight. My other two co-workers have stated the same thing and one of them is of the same ethnic and religious background as this guy so he can`t scream racist.
Sorry for the long vent but at least it`s off my chest... for now.
