What will I do with her..

I arrived early today, expecting I already have results from the trials I am conducting since the beginning of this week. But just like yesterday, I've got nothing!

Do you think I've got problems on anticipation and planning?

In fact, after the definition of the feasibility plan with other partners such as R&D and Quality Dept, I normally prepare the terrain by checking all the materials necessary for my trials. That would mean purchasing the specimens from the Central Dept, preparing/ordering all the chemicals needed, adjusting the machine according to the process required and preparing the launching plan with the pilot plant*.

Last week, I already adjusted the machine and provided the plan to the operator incharged so she could prepare the specimens and launch them early yesterday. Hélas, I arrived at 9am yesterday without nothing launched. Her reasons was that she was alone with the machine, that she just cannot leave, and she had no specimens prepared. Didn't I give her the plan last week so she could prepare everything come Tuesday? Or ok, she had no time last week, but isn't it more logical to prepare the specimens prior to starting the machine? Hmp! If she will remain as organized as that, I will never finish this validation before my maternity leave!

Unfortunately, the results yesterday weren't as I've expected. There were more problems than I thought. But no panic, I quickly geared up to plan B. So before leaving yesterday, I explained to her the program for today while she jotted down everything on her notebook.

Today, I arrived at past 8:30am with nothing waiting for me. She's got every element to start with but she nevertheless waited for me. I haven't even started my computer and my phone was already ringing. I'm fluent in french and I'm sure she understood every single detail but she just cannot work independently. What will I do with her? (I avoid comparing the working attitude between my country and my adoptive country as working culture is different, and they don't really appreciate it - I learned my lessons!).

To avoid excessive exercise between my office and the pilot plant (they're on separate buildings, both on first floor), I brought my laptop and my portable phone with me and stayed with her the whole time. I know her, if I stay in my office, she will make my phone explode by asking questions non stop and eventually ask me to see her!

With devine intervention, everything ran smoothly as I wished and in function of today's result, I then again explained to her the program for tomorrow...and I'm sure, I will arrive again tomorrow with no results..nakakabaog na sya! Di tuloy ako makapag bloghop, kainis! (hehe, isipin daw ba ang blogging!).

Opps, by the way, it's not discrimination, she's like that with everybody else..

*Pilot Plant - a place where we do trials and experiments simulating industrial conditions. Most engineering schools provide such platform for students to conduct their experiments.

Noemi, naku, nasa max limit na nga ako ng politeness ko e, malapit na kong sumabog sa kanya. the problem with her is puro sya reklamo, everything is complicated..pag work na usapan, from being sweet, nagiging bitch sya talaga!

Linnor, if only it's as easy as that. super protected ang mga employees dito, you just cannot fire them unlike sa pinas. dito, if you want to fire somebody, dadaan ka muna sa tribunal, you have to proove that you're in difficulty economically, or whatever your reason is..incompetence? hirap i-proove nyan..

Mildred, joklash, welcome to the club. kahit ngitngit pa rin ako, napangiti mo naman ako hehe. pero sa totoo lang, gusto ko na ngang ipukpok sa ulo nya yung phone...o kaya ilubolob ko kaya sa caustic soda para luminis ang konsensya? naku, bad girl na naman ako..

Naomi said...

Analyse said...

naunahan ka ba, aba, baka maoberteykan ka ng estudyante mo nyan.

hay naku, sinabi mo, buti na lang, nung naglilihi ako e wala akong ongoing trials, kundi baka maging kamukha pa ng bruha...in fairness to her, mabait naman sya, sweet pa nga, loves ako nun, yun nga lang, wag mo syang pagtrabahuhin...teka? bat nga ba sya nasa kumpanya kung ayaw nyang magtrabaho di ba..

ang mister, iniwan ang beauty ko, nasa US ngayon, titigan ko na lang piktyur nya bago matulog nyehehe..

Busy ang nanay! Okey yan, para busy rin si bebe( kakasipa) if hindi na makakilos sa sikip sa loob ng tummy.
What a work ha?

Duke said...

ay anu ba yan! medyo slow ang pick nya ha! i wooozaaa mo na muna sister!

Analyse said...

Ate Amy, super busy nga, i'm looking forward na talaga sa maternity leave ko...

Duke, i guess she's just stressed out that's why she's doing auto-blocage, she panics a lot and she lacks self-confidence, i guess she's hiding all that behind that attitude..medyo psycho pa ko nyan trying to understand her...pero nakow, sarap nya talagang sapakin!
