That sucks.  I’m not sure what you can do since he is your superior.  Just be happy it’s Friday, I guess!

I’m sorry this guy is so frustrating for you. For the most part, it seems like you need to just suck it up. 

It seems like a big problem is contacting clients, to me, there should be an agreement about that- who contacts which clients, when and about what issues.  Clients shouldn’t be missing things because you two can’t work together, and if I was a client I wouldn’t be impressed if I got two emails from the same company and got the impression that the people didn’t communicate with eachother.  Of course, I don’t know what business you are in or what is routine, but this seems to be a fairly simple issue to address and decrease your frustration.

If I was in your shoes, I’d bring this up with my boss (not the leaving early stuff, but the distribution of workload) and ask how to handle it. It sounds like there isn’t a set business process in place for a lot of what you do, which means you have nothing to fall back on when he’s being a lazy ass. I wouldn’t present it to your boss as a complaint, just position it so it comes off like you need your boss’ advice on how to properly assign/delegate work so nothing is missed and the clients have a positive experience.

Good luck.. your coworker sounds like a real doucher.
