"HI DOCTOR NICK!" (Who said that?)
I've commented before under the name Former Glass Box slave, and if it isn't taken, I'd like to keep it. A bit of backstory on me and my name, I've spent way too much time in retail and customer service occupations with the worst being a Hell computer technician scheduler and a Generic Last Name Marketplace Fuel center employee (12 hour shifts in a 10 by 6 plexiglass and aluminum box. Hence my name) As a result I've become what most people call "a bit strange." Currently I've been unemployed due to living in a small college town and after several years of it, my wife and I were able to save enough of her meager paychecks to send me to a trade school.
Now I'm aware that my question isn't exactly retail related, but I'd still like to ask, if I'm aware of a small group of hmmmm we'll call them "trainers" creating a potentially lethal employee, should I do all within my power (including reporting them to the "dean" and state their respective employers) or simply hope that because she's so incredibly stupid she won't ever be hired.
This question may involve a bit of explanation. My course is one that certifies students to run heavy equipment like large mining vehicles, bulldozers, excavators and so on. Not only does this 20 year old girl (Henceforth known as DERR I DON'T KNOW screamed, like everything else she "says" at full volume) have an in class tutor who basically does all her work for her since she can't read at even a first grade level thus preventing her from actually learning anything, the head "trainer" lets this continue!
Then this idiot is placed in fully functional machines that are all potentially lethal if you mess up, and she has yet to do anything right. She's nearly killed everyone in our class at some point and is allowed to continue. We're all afraid that once she graduates, she'll be on the news as having caused some catastrophe.
So I ask you, Wise RHUers, what should I do? We've all worked with stupid and dangerous coworkers before, is it my duty to stop this one from being created if I can? Or should I hope that it works itself out?
