Brain Is Not In Moperation

| Canada | Working | April 8, 2013

(We have recently hired a new coworker, and this is my first shift with her.)

Me: “[Coworker], could you go mop?”

Coworker: “I don’t know how.”

Me: “Okay. Just take the bucket over to the mop sink, fill it up with hot water, and add dish soap and a splash of bleach.”

(My coworker does so, so I go around and start doing the other closing duties. A few minutes later…)

Coworker: “What do I do now?”

Me: “You mop the floor with the water.”

Coworker: “But I don’t know HOW to mop!”

Me: “…You just move the mop across the floor.”

Coworker: “Can you do it for me?”

(Needless to say, she did not last a month.)
