    That guy sounds like a nightmare employee. Some people just can't help it but be jerkoffs. Too bad.

      It seems to be the mentality of most government employees that I'm running into since I've been here

        Being a government employee, I'd say you pretty much nailed it. Its amazing to see how many of these folks would not make it in the private sector...someplace they would, god forbid, have to be productive in order to earn their pay check. This is why its usually cheaper for the tax payers to have a lot of their work contracted out. But then you get into brother-in-law deals and affirmative action/preferred bid requests, etc.

        I keep TUMS in my desk drawer and tend to burn through a lot of them.

            It's not just gubment employees, fellas. I spent a number of years in the power generation biz, and I worked with many guys that couldn't even do their daily duties without some help. And these are guys pulling down 100 grand a year. Management knew all about it, but as long as the work got done, they didn't care who did it.

              this will probably ruffle feathers but was it a union job site?

                At the time, no. Now the plant is owned by a major utility that is union and the guys I still talk to there say it has gotten worse. I'm glad I left when I did, I'd probably be in jail for murder. On a side note, I used to work maintenance in a plant that was union, but didn't require you to be a member. Half the plant was union, half, wasn't. It was comical to watch the 2 sides banter back and forth.

                    Things went along pretty well, until someone would bring up an issue and then hilarity would ensue. Doesn't matter now, the plant closed and moved to China.

                      probably not much along the lines of union vs non-union bickering over there.
