Training Day

HarperCollins finally hired someone permanent for my position. I was only supposed to be at this temp job for a couple of weeks at the end of December 2004. It's is now May 26. Yesterday, I began training the new guy. I don't know if he's going to make it. First off, he couldn't remember my password to my hotmail account. I dont' know how he's going to check my e-mail all day long. Then when we called my friends living out of state he had nothing to say to them. So, I tried making it easier on him and suggested he call his out of state friends. Turns out he doesn't have any. Then I come to find out he doesn't even have a blog! Later in the afternoon he seemed to be getting the hang of just sitting at the desk, but then all of sudden he gets up and says, "I'm bored. I'm going to file that big stack of invoices sitting at the edge of your desk." I felt bad it was his first day and I didn't want to reprimand him again, so I let him file the invoices.

Hi Rachel-
Not sure if you remember me. I'm Palmer's friend, Alicia. We went to the New Year's Eve BNL concert in Boston together a few years ago.

I didn't know you had a blog; otherwise, I would have started reading a long time ago. You've got some damn funny stuff here. I'm gonna have to catch one of your comedy sets sometime.

In fact, my husband and I were coming into the city in June, possibly on the 13th, and I noticed you have a gig that night. If we do, indeed, come into the city on the 13th, I'd love to go. Mayhap you could email me some more info on where the place is located and such?

Your replacement never returns my emails.
