And I’m trying not to scream, because my partner and I were asigned to handle a consultation for the pharmacy group on campus, and she put together this outline because we were both SO busy but I was busier, and she sent it to me, and I opened it up, and it was LITERALLY an outline on how to write emails, talk on the phone, and a bunch of other really stupid shit that would be ABSURD to present to AN EBOARD of a Pharmacy Fraternity.
So…I rewrote the entire thing with some off-hand, off to the top of my flippin’ head Organizational/Industrial Psychology/Group Behavioral Patterns/Conflict Resolution stuff I happened to know, sent it back to her, and was like “Hey! I revamped your outline. I thought it should be a little more oriented around student groups but I kept a bunch of your stuff.”
I should have added “and I took out the entire section where you decide to talk about what a text message was, you idiot.”
So I lied. So what? Her’s a hideous outline, it was about an 8th of the caliber of something I can do, sitting at work, in one hour, and I had fun doing it. If someone is insisting on imbuing an outline with their incompetence, you can bet I’m going to scrap it and put together something I would be proud to present to a room full of accomplished individuals.
The girl is a nice girl. She seems very put together, very busy, very organized. She sent that to me and my whole perception of her evaporated. I don’t know how she got in this position, or what type of person LOST to her. She presents well, I guess? She’s also a Christian Scientist, which right now is the only redeeming thing about her (other than the fact that she’s actually very sweet, mostly).
WOooooooo on fire. It’s my ring! It came in the mail last night!
