Ive posted before about my potentially alcoholic colleague who managed to rack up $11-12k of damages to company property across 5 separate incidents in his first 2 months. I left my computer earlier today, had 7-8 windows open, programs, emails etc. I came back 5 mins later and my computer was off. Not knowing why i restart it. As its booting up, this guy tells me as he walks past "oh, yeah, i tried to download some photos onyour computer and it just crashed, sorry haha". He adds a nervous "haha" to the end of pretty much every sentence and it infuriates me also. I lost a big chunk of an email i was writing with links to various projects in it, and about 10 mins work on a plan. Director is super non-confrontational and has left us with this guy to "sort it out amongst yourselves". Doesnt look like theyre going to fire him. Anyway, theres another guy whos confounded me today. I got a bounce email from the personal email address of ine of my other colleagues on my own account. The email bounced because he attempted to send himself a shortcut to one of our CAD programs and the server figured it may have been a virus. From what ive gathered so far - he thought that if he sent himself the icon, he could download it at home and use the software for his own work on the side. I think he did it from my account while i was out in order to avoid suspicion. This guy has 2 science based degrees. FML.
