Why I should never be allowed to hire anyone ever again

When I got my first job out of college as a journalist and became editor in six weeks due to a mean trick by the woman who hired me, I learned a lot. I learned more about photography and page design, I learned that school board meetings are the most boring thing in the world β€” followed closely by watching golf on television β€” and I learned what not to look for in an employee. Like, one that doesn’t know how to or really even want to do her job. Except for that she wanted my job after I left.

Reporter I hired who was looking to take my place: “I think I’ll always be a mediocre journalist, but I could definitely be a kick-ass daycare provider.”
