My assistant gets visibly overwhelmed by basic tasks like printing or filing. She gets upset when we ask her to help with scheduling or answer phones during meetings. She will respond that simple assignments are “too hard.” At this point, I’m not sure what she thinks her job is. She is assigned to me and a partner, but it’s the same for both of us. She has worked with the partner since he was a first year so he has accepted it. Is there anything that I can do as an associate?

So I met a girl on muzmatch and we’ve been talking for a little bit now.

It’s not like she doesn’t respond but I get the feeling that she’s not into me as much as I’m into her. Thoughts?
