I'm in the process of rebuilding my office staff when I took the chance in hiring someone way past her prime, convinced that her mature "experience" in life would be useful to me and my company. I even ignored the blatant look of fatigue, as if life beat the crap out of her many times over.
And ignoring her severe obesity. After all, anybody who doesn't have enough respect that their own body knowing it has to last 70+ years doesn't have enough respect for anything else in life.
And ignoring her embellished references, all from people who seemingly lied about her qualifications and having worked with her.
And ignoring her sense of urgency. Because she claimed, all of a sudden (after 2 solid years of unemployment), that there was another job offer on the table.
But...what the hell?! Why not give her a shot, right? Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised!
Within the first day, I could tell that she had no interest in following directions. Okay, well, maybe she's hard of hearing too, I thought. She is older, after all.
Nope. Turned out that she's lazy as f*** on top of wanting to take frequent cigarette breaks because, well...why work when you can stand in the parking lot smoking like a chimney, doing nothing but watching the birds fly by? Much better than working, after all.
And I should mention that I get migraine headaches instantly upon smelling cigarette smoke that she drafted in the door after her frequent smoke breaks. Gag!
But, then she lied to me. And that was the straw.
The day before, she had asked me if I shut my computers off at night. I said no. We don't ever shut them off. "Well, at my last job..." Blah, blah, blah. Nobody cares about your last job, which ended 2 years ago. We don't shut the computers off here. Okay?
I then had her doing some data entry into my accounting system. Once she left the desk, I figured I'd hop onto that same computer to cut a quick check. Except the computer was OFF. What the hell?! I said to her, "I thought I mentioned that I don't turn my computers off." And she said, "I didn't shut the computer off. It must've shut off by itself."
Oh, okay. So, I've had that particular computer on for several months straight, only rebooting it before the holiday season for an update, and then suddenly -- after her fat ass was sitting in the chair in front of it -- the computer decides to shut off by itself the moment she leaves the desk? Yeah...okay. I'm sure that happened.
Now, I understand people make mistakes. That's okay. Just say something like, "Oh, I'm sorry. Just a force of habit. I won't do it again." Or something to take personal responsibility.
Not this washed up hag. (No wonder she's been unemployable for more than 2 years. Nobody wants to hire her. Shame on me for giving her a chance when my gut told me NO!!)
After I told her nicely that I didn't think she was fitting in, she snatched her check from my hand and stormed out like a 3-year-old having a meltdown in the candy aisle at Walmart. And this woman was OLD. (Makes you wonder if some people just don't have the capability of maturing in this lifetime.)
The next day (after her termination) she decided to write me a nasty text message, stating that she was online for 18 hours doing "research" and is glad that she doesn't work for me anymore. I could have saved her the 18 hours because all of her "research" is in my book The Lost Secret...in chapter 15 to be exact. The same book I gave her to read 3 weeks before hiring her (and the same book she lied stating she had read). It would have taken her 18 minutes to read everything she needed to know about me, even if she was a super slow reader. But...well, she had to justify her uselessness some way...by making me out to be the bad guy instead of taking any kind of personal responsibility. (And I wondered why she chose to research me for 18 hours after she was fired instead of for the 3 solid weeks she had before she was hired. Oh well...it's hard to figure mentally challenged people out, isn't it?)
After that whole debacle, I thought about what a sad sack of sh** this lady is and how the likelihood that she'll find a decent job at her washed up age is about 3.5 %. Maybe less. She's done. She has no future with any decent employment, as nobody wants someone with minimal skills who is over-the-hill, is severely overweight, has a sour puss miserable attitude all day, thinks everybody owes her a living for barely-scraping-by minimal work, and smokes like a train.
I wondered to myself, "What kinds of options does someone of this caliber have to make a living?"
The answer: NONE. Not with an employer, for sure. Their ONLY option would be to become self-reliant and self-employed in some way.
Of course, this woman is much too lazy for self-reliance and self-employment. She could begin with some personal development, starting with shedding 200 lbs. while hitting those Nicotine patches. But, again, she's much too lazy for any of that. And surely it's someone else's fault that she's obese and smokes. It's probably McDonald's fault for showing too many commercials. And it's probably the devil on her left shoulder's fault for aiming a gun to her head while handing her a pack of cigarettes. And she's clearly not "hungry" enough for success. (Eating 10 Big Macs a day doesn't leave many people hungry.)
But the bottom line is this: without a desire and without a blueprint for success...there is NO FUTURE. Especially for those who are "over the hill" in today's job market. And for different industries, "over the hill" can be anywhere from 40 and up! Maybe even younger in some industries.
If you don't have the desire to be successful, you'll never be successful.
If you don't have a road map or blueprint for success, you'll never be successful.
But what if I told you that you only need to bring ONE of the above things to the table?
That's right. All you'd need to bring is DESIRE. And I can bring the success blueprint or road map to the table.
