Ruby: People suck.
Ginger: What? You got cut off on the highway again?
Ruby: Well, almost. This guy came right up behind me, tailgated when I had no chance of getting over, and then proceeded to flash his headlights and turn signal. I thought he was a cop! But when I pulled over onto the curb he just flew past and started doing that to the next car.
Ginger: Wow. That is bad.
Ruby: I know! But that’s not the topic of this particular rant.
Ruby: Well, ask.
Ginger: Right. Ruby, why do people suck?
Ruby: They want me to do their jobs for them!
Ginger: Their entire jobs?
Ruby: Okay, not everything. But this lady has the task of redesigning a process and was told to ask for my thoughts. After I explained to her how it should work, she asked me to write the documentation.
Ginger: So, she was told to design something, you designed it, and then she asked you to write the documentation too!
Ginger: That’s not fair.
Ruby: No! But there’s more.
Ruby: Yes, more.
Ruby: Are you goi—
Ginger: What else did she do?
Ruby: Then she asked me to comment on what she did write.
Ginger: That’s fair.
Ruby: Yes, that’s not the issue.
Ginger: So, what’s the issue?
Ruby: When I gave her my comments, she didn’t understand them.
Ginger: She’s asked you to clarify?
Ruby: No, she just said she didn’t understand so I had to explain it all from the beginning. Again.
Ginger: I don’t follow.
Ginger: Sorry, too easy.
Ruby: After I explained it all again, I realized what was really wrong.
Ginger: That’s a relief.
Ruby: Not really.
Ginger: But you figured it out?
Ginger: I don’t want to play this game anymore.
Ginger: Fine. What did you figure out?
Ruby: That she doesn’t even understand who the process is for!
Ruby: I shouldn’t do other people’s work for them.
Ginger: I coulda told you that.
Ruby: But you didn’t.
Ginger: That’s because I don’t do your work for you.
Ruby: Somehow, I feel like I’m supposed to thank you.
Ginger: You are.
Ruby: But that means more work and trouble for me.
Ruby: People suck.
