It was the middle of a busy day in the department. As most of us were plugging away at our computers, Belinda (not her real name) sat there idly playing a game on her screen. The trainer happened by at that moment, saw what was going on, and confronted her. Belinda seemed unperturbed, and offered a perfectly reasonable explanation for her behavior. It went something like this:
“Well, you see, sometimes I just need a break, so if I just play this game for a while, then it recharges me and I can go back to work.”
If I remember correctly, Belinda lasted less than a month before she was sent on her way.
