Student challenge

I am keeping score on the new students.
So far it's stupid 3, students 0.
First one I sent one of the new students to page books at 7:40 pm one day and I to go find her at 9:00 pm. For 17 requests! I can do them in a half an hour. But that's with experience. 45 minutes at the most. And this isn't a big place.
Second one I come back from my meal break and the student starts to discharge books on the truck. He asks me what I want him to do first. Well, page books since you haven't done that and we close in an hour. I have to wonder what was he doing for the hour I was gone? It ain't busy here.
Third one. Another student who is a total Nathan(check December archives) actually told his replacement that he looked for all the unfound books and didn't find them. Not while I was here. Unless he is telekinetic or something since he was planted at the desk for his shift.
I knew this guy was going to be trouble. When he rambled on about his experience in counseling people I knew he was a bad choice. But do I get asked? Nooooo. And he'll stay here forever! That's what people like him do.

So many people. But in this case it's the abstract Stupid. Sort of like Fate vs me.
