...have they considered training an apprentice.

Permalink

They had one but the apprentice died doing some weird experimental nonsense.

Permalink

Can they recommend a foreigner, or whoever taught them, or...?

Permalink

Person who taught them is retired, they know lots of talented foreigners but the foreigners aren't allowed to do work in Anitam, it's the law, they're surprised that this one guy wasn't on the list - oh, actually, he's kind of racist and has mentioned he doesn't want to work for humans until he sees what they're like.

...how's he planning to see what they're like? Would it help if she weren't home at the time?

Permalink

Seems irrational to this warder but, well, racism is pretty irrational. She can ask but shouldn't count on it. 

Permalink

Why are there only a handful of warders in Anitam? She doesn't want to hire the human, she wants someone with experience dealing with electronics and such.

Permalink

The accident that killed her apprentice took out like six people actually, and it's always been a somewhat specialized field. She could get the human now for the basics and get someone in a couple months who knows how to do electronics?

Permalink

But human wards interfere with electronics. It'll be conspicuous to the neighbors if they're done wrong, not to mention it'd make it just as hard as it was on Earth to play computer games! What is wrong with this place? Aren't they supposed to be dramatically more populous?

Permalink

Yes, they're terribly sorry, it's just a busy time. 

Permalink

She attempts to hire the fellow with the bad reviews and the human jointly.

Permalink

The fellow with the bad reviews is an hour late and starts mapping things with an unusual sort of lit metal wand.

Permalink

The human warder asks what he's doing.

Permalink

His answer is clearly complete nonsense!

Permalink

"...say again?"

Permalink

Still nonsense.

Permalink

"That doesn't make any sense."
