All I want for Christmas...
...is for my co-worker of 6 years to be fired.
It would be devastating for her and her family. She and her husband, US citizens, are immigrants. Her husband can't get a job in his field (probably due to language issues and the fact that he's an arrogant a**). He does not earn enough to support them. She works part time and looks after their son the rest of the time. It's unlikely she would be able to get a job in her field with such flexible hours, and if she did I doubt it would last.
But she's a terrible employee. She is so eager to say yes to everything that she can't do her job well. This is the format of an average conversation with her:
Person A "Here's a direct question."
Person B "Here's a very indirect wishy-washy answer, because I don't want to say anything too direct in case it's not what you want to hear."
Person A "But I want to know if this is right"
Person B "Well, ok if you want to know that, then that's what I'll say."
Person A "I can tell you aren't speaking with conviction. Is that right, or just what you think I want to hear?"
Person B "Yes."
Person A "Yes what?"
Person B "Yes, ok, it is right, but doesn't have to be if that's not what you want to hear."
