    This is one of those cases where you have to side with management. Sometimes there are folks that just are not right for the job they do. Most of the time they end up keeping the job they have forever also, I can remember at least 8 cases where certain employee’s were just either not right for the job or they were never at work to do the job and they stuck around for ever.

    And when they have someone all the customers like, they fire them, like at the Albertson’s in Venice near where I live.

    Right on the money, from personal experience most of the time the management know who’s useless and who is not, alot of times though the useless folks are usually harder to get rid of because of various reasons. (seniority, union won’t allow it and so on.) Then there are employees that do not deserve it that get the axe for not having the seniority or what ever. I was in a situation where I came from an on the floor production line job and moved up into a glorifed Supervisional assistant job I worked 11 years for the same company I paid union dues to the same union for those 11 years, when the company downsized due to new taxation and regulations in place by the goverment (I won’t get into what we produced) my assistant job was one of the ones eliminated I was suppossed to be allowed to recieve a job in the finishing department but the same union had pretty much argued to have me let go with an extremely small severance rather then allow me to take a job off of someone who had only worked at the company for 8 months. The union argued it would not be fair to let me back into the labor departments again being an office worker, they also did not show up at all when I was released to argue my case (we waited for 45 minutes.) The reason was given to me they did not represent me and I was not a member of the union. (once again being an office worker.) They sure didn’t mind collecting union dues from my check every week though.

    Finally a funny one! Yesterday too! About time you stopped making the same tired old joke about Rita and developed some of the other characters. Cliche humor isn’t funny; anti-cliche is funnier.

    Well, it was management that put Sal in customer service- so you can’t side with them entirely.

    We had a guy in a warehouse I worked in who clearly had some serious issues. He was delusional and paranoid, and a lousy worker on top of it. He almost wrecked the place the one time he tried to runs forklift. But he stayed for three years because his supervisor forgot to fire him during his initial probational period. They finally got rid of him due to massive layoffs. They could cover it because he went out the door in a crowd.

    Sal’s mom must be about 90 years old.

    I’ve seen alot of that as well, one of the things I had to do was evaluate new employees and give the management reccommendations, sometimes no matter what you reccommend they still won’t let go of them when they can, so yeah I can say I can see both sides to it I know its not one sided, its one of those cases I guess where there’s blame to pass around.

    I don’t know John’s thoughts on it, but I figure Sal could be about 40. So his Mom wouldn’t have to be much more than 60.

    Lets remember the Peter Principle, a worker will raise to his level of incompetence, then stay there .

    It seems like the case most the time. :)

    That would leave most elected positions vacant.

    In Sal’s case, that happened the day he was hired.
