Nel mezzo del camin di nostra vita...

When Dante Alighieri wrote his epic Divine Comedy there is no way that he could have conceived a circle of hell like the one I have been experiencing this week while I try to train my co-worker to do my job.

How was Dante to know?

Basically, if you ever want to torture someone, have them train an employee who is unfamiliar with basic windows applications to the point of having to write down things like, 'click print button - tool bar on top of page" and "close page by clicking x in red box in corner of page." I am not kidding. So all of the instructions I have written out have to be re-written. I must have told him a million times, "the print button will always be in the tool bar at the top." And yet he still insists on writing it down every time. Seriously, every time. This is what I get for giving more than 2 weeks notice. I was trying to be nice - now I am the one getting screwed. to the mall to have pizza and some retail therapy.

Hahahahaha! This made me laugh out loud! I once worked with a computer-retarded old man co-worker, and I had to write down for him how to delete old e-mails. He was literally deleting them one by one. I told him that he could just hit shift and highlight a bunch of them and delete them all together. And he just DIDN'T GET IT. OMG!!!
