In the bustling hub of a major airport, Alice was the lynchpin of maintenance – ensuring the equipment servicing airplanes ran smoothly.
Enter the Newbie
Alice, a new hire, wasn’t trained by Jim, but she often sought his guidance to enhance her practical experience.
Lessons in Conflict
Their brief training session spiraled into a heated dispute as Alice rejected Jim’s advice.
With astonishment, he watched as she dismissed his teachings and limited herself to quality assurance checks during her employment.
Despite being the new kid on the block, Alice consistently performed less than her colleagues.
He Had to Pick Up Her Slack
This meant that someone had to assist her with routine inspections and straightforward tasks.
Unfortunately, this responsibility usually fell on Jim’s shoulders due to their shifts overlapping.
Jim had no issue assisting those less capable, provided they were honest in their efforts. However, Alice seldom completed her inspections.
What About the Rest of It?
She would sign off on 80% of each unit’s checklist, leaving the complex issues for Jim to resolve.
The Inspection Puzzle
Eventually, Jim noticed a worrying trend – Alice wasn’t genuinely inspecting any of the units she was signing off on.
Her Oversights Became His Burdens
There were constant instances of overlooked problems, like non-starting units she had deemed okay, which became burdensome issues for him to fix.
A company spreadsheet tracking preventative maintenance revealed an odd pattern: Alice was conducting double the inspections of her peers yet never closed a single issue.
The stark discrepancy led even distant colleagues to question her productivity.
Policy Change for the Better
Tired of Alice’s work-evading tactics, the company altered its policy, mandating the completion of initiated inspections.
Though this was a minor victory, Alice’s continued negligence still irked Jim.
Alice, a peculiar character, loved assuming a commanding role, even donning a supervisor’s safety vest despite her status.
This charade continued until Jim’s jesting remark to their boss resulted in her reverting to a standard safety vest.
Ignoring Safety Precautions
Another oddity was Alice’s decision to wear nail extensions, making it impossible to don the necessary safety gloves for handling hazardous materials.
This blatant disregard for safety protocols was a clear indication that she wasn’t conducting her tasks.
Relentless Phone Calls
Alice also had an uncanny habit of incessantly calling everyone, often about trivial issues.
She would delegate her inspection responsibilities to others under the guise of seeking their expertise.
When Alice was unable to use a voltmeter to check the battery voltage, it was a classic “Alice moment” – a testament to her lack of knowledge.
The Story Is Only Just Beginning
Such instances were abundant, with everyone having their share of such stories. Despite the long tale, Jim’s saga with Alice doesn’t end here, promising more anecdotes leading to her eventual termination.
