What do you do with a team member who first starts to hang loose, then he neglects his job, then refuses to carry his part of the team responsibility and eventually proceeds to work against the rest of the team? Decision: Remove him. End of story.
I'm talking about the second molar on the right next to a reclining idiot tooth. They call that 'wisdom tooth but I prefer to give it my own description. It shows up at the wrong time, at the wrong place and it's never useful. And sometimes it even cause damage to the one next to it by crowding and shoving. But this one, I can't blame it because there's quite a gap in between them. Last I checked they weren't touching each other. Yet.
Ok, maybe due to inability to stay clean, it started to attract bacteria and finally infected the one next to it.
Isn't that how things happen when you work in a team? Sometimes bad guys who quietly work behind the scenes do their damage but they go scot free.
So, this molar, the one I kicked out, raised itself higher than the rest of the teeth and I finally found I couldn't bite anything with my incisors without raising hell (of a pain).
I gave him the marching orders last night. Next, I better watch the bl**dy reclining idiot...
