There's this lady in my company that simply refuses to do math of any kind. People send her stuff that occasionally requires addition or subtraction, maybe even trying to figure out a percentage of something, and she sends them a reply asking them what the "real number would be."

My boss won't let me respond the way I want to.

People who act like that are generally in good with the boss for one reason or another, which is why they get away with it in the first place. So, you know, good luck. . . .

"I'd like to speak with you about a production issue on the team that could impact our vendor relationships."

Oh hell no.  Not at my company.

Better.

So how to you go to your boss about the slacker when the slacker is your boss? Who got there through lateral "promotions" because management does not want to admit they were completely BS'd by this guy's overblown resume and let him go?

But I'm not bitter....completely......yet.

There's this guy in my company that simply refuses to do math of any kind.  He always sends me a bunch of numbers that require addition or subtraction, even figuring out a percentage of something, to get to the bottom line.  I always send him a reply asking him what the "real number would be," because my boss won't let me respond the way I want to.

They're not lazy, they're just taking smoke break... for the third time this hour.

Some of us wish this was our problem.

All my life I wanted a cubicle with shiatty Dilbert comics tacked to sides.... While working a 9 to 5 with all the silliest of holidays off....

But no, I deal craps in a casino. There are no holidays, weekends, nor casual fridays.

Only abusive disappointed drunks with more money than sense.

One of my slacker coworkers is too busy stealing our customer's SSNs to do any real work. She should've been fired ages ago for attendance issues, poor or nonexistent work quality, frequently being AWOL on the clock, etc. but since she's a single mom with 3 kids and a shoe and blunt addiction, our offsite owner & HR manager won't get rid of her. Our project manager is aware but pretends not to know so he doesn't have to deal with it. You'd think having a paycheck direct deposited into a Rush Card account would be a red flag about your employee, but since this is a government contractor, why care?

Because I can't prove the ssn theft, I've been advised to keep my mouth shut.

Myself? None. But I'm having this problem with a co-worker who also happens to be a supervisor in another dept. The weird thing is that *I'm* the only one who will say anything to her. Maybe her being built like a WNBA member has something to do with it.

/gonna have to get Wayne Brady to come choke a biatch.

TFA: Workers who don't do their fair share typically cost the rest of us an extra one to three hours a week at the office, a recent survey by corporate training firm VitalSmarts found.

Correction: The typical worker claims that slacking colleagues cost them one to three hours of extra work per week. Also, 92.4% of respondents report having at least one lazy co-worker, while 99.0% describe their own contributions to the team as at or above average.

The Survey.

I like the transactional analysis questions they'd like to you use to confront these folks. I think I'll try it here.

You threadshiat the top of every page like a paid shill and yet not everyone has you on their ignore list,  can you help me understand why not?

Look, I'm really trying to get 100% ignore rates, but some people are just too damn lazy to go through the steps to put me on ignore. I'm working on some new techniques that I'm pretty sure will inspire even these lazy morons to pull the trigger on me. Just give me 30 days. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

nah, you're cool. It's near the top here.

Well blissfully my company posts sales numbers once or twice a week with everyone listed on there. There's always a conspicuously low number from the same person in my office.

Still isn't even to get rid of him.
