The Thoroughly Incompetent
“Qu’est-ce que, l’anglais? Je sais seulement anglaise … petit peu.”
You have no idea how they got here, or what they are doing, or even why they are the way they are. They have no idea why they are here or what they have to do; it’s a pretty hopeless scenario to be looking at. You know there has been wrong somewhere because they are incapable of performing the simplest of tasks related to their domain, an analogy could be a professional photographer asking where the click button is. You really can’t do much in this situation except hope for a miracle and invest in some training… but will they be receptive to that, which, given the situation seems highly unlikely. Wait, do they know what training means?
Gently, ask them to make a move – they’ll probably find their true calling, and will thank you for it later.
