So I figured I would tell another story, this time something a little more rage inducing.
Let me begin by saying this particular employee was not the brightest, in fact, I am fairly certain she was mentally handicapped. She was hired on as a delivery driver, and on her first day, attempted to steal another drivers delivery, after me explaining to her, not five minutes prior, that the drivers take deliveries in order, and the order is listed on the dispatch screen. She was fifth in line.
So onto the story of the hour. This girl, lets call her Linda. Linda gets to work, it is her second day on the job, she takes her delivery, and three hours later I get a call from her telling me she had a car accident. My first thoughts are just "****, I told my boss not to hire that idiot."
We pay her hospital bills, and she stops by to tell us how the accident happened, and I have to admit, i was pretty pissed.
So her accident was five miles away from where she was suppose to be delivering to complete opposite side of the delivery area, I still have no idea why the **** she was over there, she was at fault, just straight up ran a stop sign and T-boned another car, and when I asked her about it, she told me she didn't see the stop sign, which isn't even hard to see at that particular intersection, and her reason was because the sun was in her eyes. At 5:30 pm, in November, and she was driving south. What ******* sun?
I did everything in my power to get this girl fired, but we couldn't because she was technically still in recovery, and if we fired her, she could sue us. Mind you, she was out of work for six months, fortunately we didn't have to pay her any wages in that time, but we did rack up 15K in medical bills.
Never before or since have I met someone so unbelievable stupid
