    Looks like this isn’t going to be No. 13.

    One of Andy Capp’s proteges !
    I had an employee in his fifties, who worked for me for three years. It was the longest time he’d ever kept a job in his entire life ! I fired him.

    And Linguist. I had to fire a radio DJ once because he refused to adapt to our new format. His argument was,
    " I have 10 years experience." I was letting him go because he had one year of experience 10 times.

    I used to love the know-it-all kids fresh out of college, with their BA’s and MA’s . All that education instantly qualified them to tell other employees with 10 or 20 years experience, how to do their jobs.
    This was especially galling to the people I worked with in the advertising/marketing fields and in the film/television industry.
    Joe/Jill College either adapted ( and very quickly ) or were looking for a new job.

    @Linguist I worked in electronics manufacturing logistics, we also had our “favorite” know-it-alls i.e. the new employee from a previous [insert Fortune 500 company name here] workplace continually saying, “Well, where I used to work we did it this way…” My usual response was “Yeah, but you’re not working there anymore.”

    Oh in my line of work I heard that all the time from new troops. I would go OH you were born doing this? I spent all my college studying Geology. I can give you a good discription of the geologic history of the rock you just tossed at me. But learning this job has taken me on a 32 year journey and I still see something new everyday. Just when you think you seen it all suddenly you are faced with a naked man running down the road. Very confused individual. Never did find his clothes.
