how to handle a delicate situation
Hey guys, I'm still in fire school and making great progress. I love it.
I have a question and would like the advice of fellow brothers. I'm in a company with a person who just does not want to work with anyone. Everyone in our battalion sees this and is getting ****ed off. They talk on the cell phone, are always the last to everything. The company I am in gets in trouble because this person is always lagging behind.
They are a cop and firefighter and do not want to be a firefighter. They talk back to the instructors.
Our company had a meeting together with this person and they got defensive and took everything negative. They then pulled the race card out on me and directed towards me to other instructors.
I feel as if the academy isn't doing enough about this problem because that she pulled the race card on me.
we have a little over two weeks left and I don't know if I should bring this situation up with the instructors (we have had more than 4 meetings about this individual without any success)
My chief told me to leave her behind because right now she is in control and making us look bad. But I don't exactly know what he meant by that.
But my question is if you were in this situation where this person talked back to you, always knew everything, was rude, lazy and slept during class and disrespected the instructors and brought your entire battalion down how would you handle the situation?
I know......you guys want me to put some turpentine rags around my ankles so the ants won't eat my candy a**.
