Patricia Mainardi

  • 'I don't mind sharing the work, but you'll have to show me how to do it.' Meaning: I ask a lot of questions and you'll have to show me everything every time I do it because I don't remember so good. Also, don't try to sit down and read while I'm doing my jobs because I'm going to annoy the hell out of you until it's easier to do them yourself.
