True, and I have to confess that it hadn't even occurred to me that it's
logical and the right thing to do to talk to FL *before* talking to
management. You should definitely talk to her first, and I hope that, if I
were in this situation, that would have occurred to me *before* I went to

On the other hand, I would definitely not advocate putting her feelings or
her education ahead the company's needs. That is, if fixing what she's done
is going to take more time and result in an inferior product as opposed to
what would result if you were to take charge of the project and have her
work in a different capacity.

Again, it's important to be open and honest and helpful with your coworkers.
Office politics are counterproductive. But that doesn't mean you should
sacrifice the success of a project to avoid possibly hurting someone's
