1001. Bad Eval Alarms Worker


1001. On Monday, he went to his one‐day temp assignment at BBQ&Beanz LLP. When he got there, he found a Friday memo accidentally left inside the work jacket. It said, "We've got Arnie Blarney from BestTemps scheduled for Monday, but he's not ideal. Call the other agencies to see if we can get anyone else, so we can cancel Arnie." He read it again. I'm "not ideal"?, he thought. He felt insulted; he felt hurt. What exactly does "not ideal" mean, he wondered. Previously, nobody at BBQ had ever said, "You're not finished yet?" Nobody had ever said, "Is this the first time you've ever done this kind of work?" The vibes had always seemed good. He wanted to call the memo writer. Instead, he swallowed his pride and did Monday's assignment as fast and as well as he could. Maybe good work today, he thought, will neutralize this negative note. 4.7
