The Axe-Woman Cometh

This is not fun to write. You are probably tired of reading about my pathetic life.

Itís not like I didnít know it was coming.

Five weeks ago a 56 year old woman walked into the little closet called my office and announced that she was here to take my job. Surprise!

She has 24 years seniority and her department was outsourced. I was put in the position of ďtrainerĒ- which means I sat on a little chair at her elbow and tried to help her use the work station that had once been mine.

She was computer illiterate. We tackled such difficult tasks as opening an email, writing a reply to it and figuring out how to find the address of the person we needed to send it to. She thought everything was an email address - a personís name, or a website, or just a jumble of letters. She couldnít understand why her computer didnít work.

Oh, of course there was the whole issue of training her for the job-that-had-been-mine....
