So, we have a new co-worker. She's one of those folks who's had like 10 zillion different kind of jobs, and has "worked on Wall Street" and is "writing a play" and has a nephew who's "best friends with Tyler Perry"...you know...one of those. She's constantly talking about her dire financial straights and how she can't afford glasses until her benefits kick in.
So you guys? Seriously? SHE CANNOT SEE. She is sitting at the RefDesk with me with her eyes, literally, an half inch away from the computer screen. And like, I asked her to pass me one of the brochures that was next to her? She passed me three things that were NOT the brochure before I actually had to go around to the other side and grab it. If you can't effing see? YOU ARE NOT HELPING ME. I mean, she is frackin' Mr.Magoo right now. I can't even deal with it. So natch? She's taking approximately 5-6 years to assist every patron because she CANNOT SEE 4 INCHES IN FRONT OF HER. Which means, more work for yours truly. I mean people are literally just walking away from her to me because she is just squinting at a screen and doing nothing and mumbling "uhhhh....mmmmm....let me....uh..."
GAH! This is why people kill each other.
I just...I mean...I can't....I mean if you can't fucking see? You need to be cutting financial corners elsewhere. CANNOT GRASP.
