How does it feel having to coach another intern while not losing the cool for subsequent amount of times? Pretty astonishing. For some reason, getting the right level of attention and respect is laborious for she had just that particular exertion to see me break into pieces. I mean, as much as I love to leave and have all the knowledge and insides of this company pass on to the following batch of interns, I abhor leaving my organised shipshape table for the next person only to find out that they will completely destroyed the purpose of organizing.
OCD and lifeless as it sound, I spent a solid 4 months rebuilding and organizing papers, including managing files and computer documents. No wonder I was dubbed the most uptight employee in office. Least I know that for sure.
So a new batch of interns came last Monday as a replacement for my soon departure. And my supervisor insist that I guide her along for these few days before she go for her annual leave yesterday. Well we got along fine for first part of the day, she would gladly perform the assignments given. However as the adaptation became more comfortable, she grown more oblivious to my requests. Using phones in the middle of the day while showing much reluctancy to work.
I have no idea. It's always that underlying fear about the future generations taking over. Where kids were taught to be disrespectful and jobs mean nothing more than surviving the day and not getting your ass roasted by boss. This afternoon, I was verging on lashing out at her as the cool weather and effects on certain medicines started kicking in. "Please fucking do your job and stop complaining about the amount of workload one has to bear. I have been doing AND enduring this for 4 months while you were only here for 2, so please shut the fuck up." But it didn't happen just yet..
Another friend of mine were experiencing a difficulty in managing her intern, for some reason, he is being described as a slow learner while the intern taking over me is an undoubtedly burden.
Sometimes I wonder how to lead the flamboyant and dazzling lifestyle of not giving a fuck for a day, just like the 80s where hairstyles and aerobics were the thing. Or perhaps if I chose to graduate faster, I could have skipped the entire internship module. Unless educational government decide to eliminate the whole interning subject, but then who can possibly modify the education system these days?
Nonetheless, January has been a great trial... Was hoping for more but this is what I can only handle. Apparently. Got a jump start to my adulting days and god I wish it's easier to swallow a spoon full of medicine.
Stop whining, start working.
