Lexter121665dWhat are you trying to tell us? Your boss sucks? Didn't you speak up? Why is that colleague still there?
Get your boss go be his "mentor". Maybe that will accelerate his departure? But for real, don't spend too much time each day on this askhole; no need to get dragged down. Give him written instructions, encourage him to ask others instead of you ("sorry, I can't help right now, but X knows everything about it!"). Block time in your calendar in case he keeps interrupting. And cover your butt in case he gets ugly and starts to blame you for his failures.
what a moron lol
Admit it, that's you
Nanos1178465dSounds like every new person these days in every field !
No wonder nothing works. :-(
I think this is why we lost indoor plumbing for 2,000 years..
Oktokolo1009765dMost people can't become devs and a lot of them can't even become acceptable code monkeys. That is just a fact you have to accept.
Try to convince him to switch to something he actually is capable of improving in (most likely something he likes to do, but not neccessarily something he already knows about). Or just ignore him and let management deal with it - he isn't your employee after all.
Btw, you should tell management that they fucked up by hiring this one - and you would be right to feel guilty about not doing so after the first few weeks...
hjk101514362dSolid rand! Even started with "I'll be back". Your style seems to be ternarynator style.
I am so sorry!
