I once had a temp who could have become a permanent staff member had she possessed just the minimum of gumption; when invited to get to know a simple software application she hadn't used before she pleaded she 'hadn't been trained' and was utterly unwilling to move outside her comfort zone. The idea that you can't use an application without formal training came to mind this morning as I read Pri Gopal's pleading piece in the Grauniad.
