So, for the past month I've been getting paid $13.00 Canadian to count parts then write down the number. I do this full time. It's a pretty sweet deal considering this is completely brainless work.

Anyway, I've given myself the title of "Super Counter" as opposed to "Inventory Documentor" because I think it sounds cooler. Now, I've also been "training" someone. Which means showing them how to count parts. And write it down. I figured it wasn't a hard task.

Ho boy.

The guy comes up to me when he's through half of one skid of parts. Here's what happened.

Guy: If the quantity says 350, should I give the vendor 400 parts or 300 parts?
Me: [blinks] Uh, you give him 350.
Guy: But the bags all say 100 pieces. So how do I get 350?
Me: [blink again] You open the bag? And take out 50 pieces?
Guy: Ooooh. [pause] Oh, shit.
Me: [headdesk]

So, I get to go back and recount the skid of parts he royally screwed up on.

Hooray for being able to count without taking your shoes and socks off! And this guy is apparently going to school for plane mechanics.

[headdesk again]

I need to find out what plane company he will be working for. So that I can't never *ever* book a flight with them. Ever.
