This employee will succeed where ever she goes. I'd hire her in a heartbeat because she was resourceful, took initiative, and was responsive to the customer. These are traits that can't be "trained."

I could tell she really listened to the problem and had a deep understanding of her systems and processes. I would wager that if someone else asked her for it today, she would have a better solution. I bet she thought about a better, more elegant solution all night.

So many people would have just said, "No. It's not my job." and then go and complain that they never get promoted and are stuck in a dead-end job. Not her, though. She took ownership of the problem and devised a solution. Great job, girl!

Never underestimate the resourcefulness of bored employees when you strike their fancy with a weird request.

When your job is "Pick up X amount of Y doughnut, put into bag, rinse, repeat, wipe hands on pants" something like this once in a while probably breaks up the monotony nicely.

thisiszombocom: I don't see how making ridiculous requests prepares you for rejection when making reasonable ones.

Actually what happened was he asked his girlfriend to do an anal furry three-way, and when she said "no" he said "uh, yeah, I was just joking... I'm doing a project where I make outrageous requests in order to get rejected...."

That's a pretty cool story. His complete confusion at having a silly request granted is funny to me.
