fresh out of college
My son, fresh out of college, keeps telling me how to run business.
We don't employ developers fresh out of college.
A: I'm really fed up with Larry. He's the biggest airhead I've ever met. He always makes careless mistakes and he's a pain to work with.
B: You shouldn't be so negative. You'll always have co-workers that are harder to work with than others. But if you're negative and start name-calling in the office, it will make a bad working environment for everybody.
A: You only say that because you don't have to work with him. The people in your department seem so capable and nice to be around. Take Mary for example. She's smart and enthusiastic. I've never met anyone as cheery as she is.
B: Everybody has their strengths and weaknesses. Even Larry. He might be a pain to be around, but he's also very good at staying in budget on projects. Mary, on the other hand, spends our project money like there's no tomorrow. Also, she's never willing to stay a little later at the office. She always leaves at 5 PM sharp.
A: Isn't there anyone in office that is a perfect co-worker? What about Bob? Everybody loves Bob. Even though he's fresh out of college and still a bit green. He is a great co-worker.
B: You're right, he's a hard worker, easy to get along with, honest, and never steal the credit on projects. The only thing he's lacking in is experience.
A: Maybe that's why he's so nice.
