"...works well when under constant supervision and cornered like a rat in a trap."
"...has reached bottom and has started to dig."
"...would not allow this employee to breed."

"...would be out of his depth in a parking lot puddle."
"...has delusions of adequacy."
"...sets low personal standards and then consistently fails to achieve them."
"...is depriving a village somewhere of an idiot."
