We recently hired a new "fresh from college" developer with absolutely no experience in PHP or MySql or a lot of anything else... fun to watch him learn... except... he still thinks he is living in a dorm room or at home. There seems to be a lot of ignorance with fresh new hires that they don't understand an office environment that has dress codes, conduct rules, etc... and how to conduct themselves therein.
Kind of wish there was a college course on "Working in an office environment" class. So that they would learn not to leave stinky gym clothes on their desk along with half eaten food from a week ago and to keep ones bodily noises to themselves and not offend the environment in general. The bewildered looks when this person gets corrected is almost amusing, but really, more sad than anything else. Ah well I guess they have to learn somewhere at sometime. Just wish it wasn't near me.
Awareness... what a concept.
- yeah its a little bit of a rant... but if you had to sit by this person you probably might get annoyed too....
