So, there is this guy at work. He thinks he’s funny and makes jokes of everything. Sometimes a bit too much actually.
For several years I couldn’t really tell he was a good performer, because I saw him very visible when making jokes and sending kudos emails to everyone, but I still could not see much the results of his work.
He had a few not so good reviews and, in the past year, I started to see a bit more of his work. So I though he was getting better.
But he’s still the clown of the team.
And today this frustrated me a LOT.
We are supposed to test a new version of a product and he is the person who signed up to provide support to the other members of the team.
Today, while trying to install the goddam product, I had an issue and went to him.
AND HE WOULD NOT LISTEN! NOT EVEN LET ME TALK! JUST JOKE, JOKE, JOKE!
C’mon, if you don’t want to help, don’t sign up for it!
So I left his office saying:
“Ok, Bye, Thanks for nothing”
and came back to restart my machine, which I knew would stop the installation and send me back to mile 0.
Then, a couple minutes later, he comes.
Don’t need you anymore, you dork!
ARGH! Stupid French!
