In this monologue, PELLA talks to her girlfriend about whether or not she should fire a recently hired staff member.
PELLA: I don’t know how to do it…he’s a sweet guy, he’s only been with us for a short while but his work, what he’s doing…it doesn’t seem like he’s keeping up. He doesn’t take direction very well and he keeps asking me for help, makes me feel like he’s too dependent on me and it’s starting to mess with my own job performance.
I’ve worked too hard to get where I am now. I won’t allow someone else to screw things up for me, just because he’s kind and handsome. He is, actually…I must admit. He’s quite attractive. But good looks can only go so far, right?
He needs to deliver the goods with work and take away my stress, not add to it. I feel as though he’s adding to it. I just don’t know how to go about his termination. I think it best I do this sooner than later, really. Not sure.
Do you think I should let him go?
