    I think this is where I should post this. I want to get this off my chest and hear some different opinions on how I might have handled it better or see things from another perspective.
    Background: I work late shift at a very busy veterinary clinic. I have had this trainee for 2 shifts. The first shift I showed her what to do, how we do it and so forth. She kept telling me how she knows that and how her way was better. I could almost feel her impatience and annoyance with me. I let it roll, hoping she was having a bad day.
    Tonight, I was dealing with multiple cases and a very sick dog that fear bites. I was training her with how to do multiple injections when the dog out of the blue, reached out and bit my hand. So I tell her to shut the doors and leave the pet alone to mellow back out. In the meantime a Dr. came up and asked me to draw blood for a glucose check on a pomeranian. I was working with that dog and she went to go medicate the biting dog. I told her to wait and we will do it together safely and to work with 1 patient at a time, so mistakes don't get made ( I was short with her because I could tell she was "going to show me she can handle the dog".) I ended up going to my office manager and telling him she isn't ready to be on her own, she is too scattered, not paying attention to the patients the way she should and gets mad when you try direct her. He pretty much said, you aren't the only person who has metioned this. I don't think she is going to work out here.
    Being the new kid 6 months back and already hearing the chatter from the other girls, I really went out of my way to help her get through "the new girl" phase but she has a HUGE chip on her shoulder,gets super defensive when you correct the work she did. I wanted to like and help her and not be part of the pack and rip her to shreds. I just wish she could humble herself to learn new ways and not take offense to "training", now it's going to be my fault if she gets let go, instead of her realizing there is a reason she is running out of clinics to work at. There is my worthless mess, I feel bad for the girl, so wrapped up in her shizz, that she is going to shoot herself in the foot everytime.

    I think that would violate some work policies.

    You just bumped a five day old post in the shit bin with a lie you can't substantiate because I upset you.

    I forget you are alive in-between your attempts to "win". :c

    What's the "fake marine" story?!? I'd like to hear that one.....


    Aaaaaaaanyway, I am actually jealous of OP, because of going through similar episodes, especially at one job, and the trainees NOT being fired, at least until months later, when management was finally bit in the ass by not listening to me. The worst one was still employed last time I checked, purely because he was buddies with a manager. The little shit was basically very gregarious, but thought he knew it all, even though he kept fucking up and I had to repair the damage, usually in a time crunch.

    It came to a head when he pulled a semi-major fuckup and left me holding the bag, and I got a major "dressing down". because no one knew who did it, and it was on my watch. Weeks later, I found out who it was, and went to management, his buddy in this case, and ever so nicely tried to explain who did it, and that I thought it was unfair that I got roasted because I was basically given responsibility for this twerp, but no authority over him, aaaaaaaaaand I wanted an apology. The best I got was a sort of muttered and dismissive retraction. Not too much later I got the fuck OUT of that place... I fucking despise nepotism, except maybe when I'm the nepotised :jj:

    He claims he is a "combat Marine".

    If you get him really mad, he tells you that you fucked with the wrong Marine. Apparently MatthewT thinks fighting on the internet is "combat". :facepalm:

    i bet the old man his account here if i posted my DD-214 and combat action ribbon cert with Dawg. of course, he didn't take the bet, but as he has no honor himself, he continues attacking my service to my country.

    i don't expect much of him at this point, really.
