They hired two people for the job that I'm doing, so I have a co-worker doing the same thing I'm doing. And she's pretty dumb. She's ignorant, too, but the main thing is that she's dumb. We had just talked yesterday about how we were going to be doing this initial stuff in two different ways, so that we could see how each way worked. She even brought it up in the meeting with our supervisor yesterday (in a way that was saying "I've got good ideas, look at me," but in a really annoying, got-to-prove-that-I'm-not-dumb, I-want-to-say-something-so-it-looks-like-I-know-what-I'm-doing kind of way, which is another reason I don't like her). So, just now, she comes in and asks me a question, and thta question demonstrated complete lack of knowledge about what we had just talked about yesterday. And she's done other dumb things. And she tries to talk to me.
Granted, it must be hard for her to be her. I just wish I didn't have to deal with her. It makes me pine for some of my more competent co-workers at Prentice Hall. The good thing is that it looks like there's a good possibility that, once the initial phase is over, we will be able to work separately, but it's not entirely clear yet.
