This Issue's Dilemmas:
What can I do when the help is no help?
After years of begging, I finally have an assistant. The problem is "Belle" constantly asks me questions, her work is sloppy, and she has no respect for deadlines. If I let her go, I'm afraid it will reflect badly on my judgment since I interviewed and hired her.
Should I fire her and risk losing face? Or is there some way I can get her to be a real help?
