    Annoying co-worker poll


    So here's the deal - I have the world's MOST irritating co-worker - I wont go into detail as to why, but here's the snag: She is ALWAYS late for work, and usually leaves for about 2 hours for lunch. None of my other co workers or myself could get away with that, we'd get fired (and have been told so in the past). We wondered how this beeyotch was getting away with this, and today we found out - she marks that she is here for 40 hours each week on her timesheet, when she is DEFINITELY not.

    Apparently, none of the bosses notice, which isn't unusual, since in a law office everyone is sort of locked into their office, and you cant tell if they are in there or not. This is the only reason she hasn't been fired yet.

    I kind of think this is stealing, and its really pretty irritating, particularly considering that she makes the same amount of money as me, and I'm pretty honest about when I'm not here. Should I be a little bitch and rat her out?

    If it makes any difference, they might; she has been "spoken to" before, so I think her new solution is to just lie......

    let it go, complaining could backfire on you...... the employee that I fired last year.... that was one of the reasons.... your bosses know what is going on, beleive me. In my office it's a team effort, and I don't put up with backstabbing employees.

    Any way to arrange it so everytime she is out a meeting is called? Or someone is looking for her while she is missing? If you rat her our it will most likely back fire but if she is missed often someone will start to question it.

    Either that or find out who she is doing

    I certainly dont want to be a backstabber, but here's how she gets away with this: the boss (managing partner) doesn't come to work until 1-2 PM. His wife does the payroll, and she is only in for 1/2 an hour a day. So the people in charge of payroll never have any idea when she is around or isn't.

    Ordinarily, I like to keep my mouth shut and not be a whiny bitch, the only reason I ask this of all youse guys is I see it as being theft; she is stealing about $100 per week in pay.

    Oh, BTW - if you laid eyes on this person, your would become a

    it will eat you up, but you really cant do anything about it without it looking bad on you too. Unless there is some way you can expose her without everyone knowing it is you.

    Its not only your bosses you need to worry about, but your remaining coworkers once you get labeled as a snitch

    Annoying co-worker poll

    I have been in your shoes and they are pretty damn uncomfortable. Same situation: new chickie (previous job) was hired, she was never in before 9am, lunched for 2 hours and left at 3:30 or 4. We figured her long day was 8 hours and a typical day was 5 to 6 hours, when she was billing clients for the standard 40. We all griped behind her back and complained, ASSUMING the bosses hadn't noticed and didn't care.

    We were wrong. it took about 8-months, but was indeed fired for this behavior and more importantly, an office-wide apology was made by the big boss for making us all put up with for so long.

    I voted for telling on her, but really... keep it under your hat and make sure it's noticed by others. If it becomes a problem for more than a year, I would THEN speak up. Seems ridiculous, but you also have to look out for good old #1.

    Good luck!
    BTW, our chick was named Jennifer and she was FUGLY, which only made us pick on her and hate her even more. And she wasn't even friendly!

    You are not alone with this type of co-worker they are everywhere. Possibly she has negotiated a deal like Jaynnus has, in which case, let it be. If she hasn't, think of her as the low water mark in the office. Behavior like this gets noticed. All it does is make you look better. Also, when it comes time to cut heads, she will be the first to go. Hang in there....

    Yikes.

    Apparently I haven't explained enough of this situation, and due to legalities (i.e., this stupid bitch finding this website somehow), I'm not sure how much more I want to post.

    In my own defense, I just want to say the following:

    I could have had her fired twice before - it literally came down to my bosses asking me what I wanted them to do. But I didn;t want someone getting fired on my shoulders, so I told them I didn;t want to decide. They have demoted her about as far as they can; she does data entry.

    When she is in the office, and the boss comes in early, I spend about 1/2 of my time fixing her mistakes. Yesterday, when there were no lawyers in the office for a time, she fell asleep at her desk, and yelled at another co worker for being too loud when opening a closet door, and waking her. Her comupter screen was on e-bay; she fell asleep while shopping for clothing.

    Jane, your situation is quite a bit different; you had something going on. This co-worker calls in when she is going to be late, and her reason is "I fell asleep on my couch last night and I want to sleep some more.", or something similar.

    Ok, I'm done ranting now; I just wanted to give you some background, so I dont look quite so much like a backstabbing peckerhead.


    Edit: FWIW, as a result of you folks' opinions, I'm not going to say anything; if my employers want to pay for someone to take up space in the office, its their business, not mine.

    Furthur support for my low water mark or insurance policy theory. As long as she is around your chances of getting canned are very low.
