She worked for the Government. So, there was nothing they could do to fire her.
I figured she had MPD. She was one person one week, another the next. You could never tell who she was going to be when you walked in her door.
One other fun one. She was so paranoid that people were out to get her, she saved all her e-mails. I was called in to her office one day because her e-mail wasn't working right. She had 9 years of e-mails, over 17,000 unread e-mails and she read over 70%. She had over a 2 GB mailbox. She wanted me to create 4 new mailboxes and sort through her last 9 years of mail and put them into 4 offline storage files that would be personal, work, personal unread and work unread.
Needless to say, that wasn't done when she wanted it done (before lunch, when she called me in at 10:15.) So, when I got back from lunch, I was thoroughly lambasted in front of her manager for failing to accomplish my basic tasks. I then turned to her boss and said "I hope sorting her last 9 years of e-mail into seperate boxes shows up on my performance review."
