She was saying she hates state benefits, they are too expensive.

Then my other co-worker stated, "But you get vacation leave".


She says, "Well if they would give me unemployment, I'd get vacation everyday".

Anyone want to replace her? So she can go on her "vacation".

Send her to this forum, she'd get along quite well with the majority here.

I'll take it!

Although it's going to depend on what the job is, I might not qualify.

Tell her she should enjoy the fact that some one gave her the BENEFIT of the doubt and hired her.

Government jobs are nearly 100% nepotism. I doubt anyone was even giving her a waiver, they probably hired her on the spot with no hesitation.

Wow. It amazes me what people will say.

We had someone say that he hated his job so much and just wanted to leave....so, we asked him for his badge and asked him to sign the resignation form and to kindly leave the building. Took less than 10 mins. I don't think he knew what hit him.

All I can say to her is, "don't pray too hard for what you want -- you might get it!"
