Possibly THE MOST USELESS work experience duo wandered about the workplace this week. Today, thank the oh-my-gods, was their last day. They were let go early. When I found out they would vex me no more, I did a happy dance in front of everyone, including a customer.
Before departing, these budding young workers left their evaluation sheets for the management. Said Tweedle Dum (That’s the girl. The boy was upgraded to Tweedle Dee, but barely.):
TD: “Oh, I bet I did really bad.” (Gets points for her powers of self-observation at least.)
Manager-Type – avoiding the obvious ‘I’ve had more competent dryer lint.’:
“Well you did fine with Punctuality. You were here every day on time.”
TD: “Oh- I thought that was about how I spoke to people.”
Manager-Type: “No, you’re probably thinking of punctuation. Full-stops, exclamation marks, and sentence structure things.”
TD: (I didn’t hear what she said next, but I can imagine she looked as vacant as a stadium car park during a baseball players strike.)
I’m guessing that she also believes that elocution is what happens when you throw a radio into a bathtub.
Used in a sentence: I’ve been elocuted and it hurt real bad.
