@alaska_99705:  Ugh, that sounds so frustrating! It’s awful when people don’t do their jobs, especially when it makes yours harder. I would suggest trying to ignore her, but, it’s really a problem when her work makes your more difficult 🙁

Yeah I think you’re kind of stuck. Slackers are an unfortunate part of every company. There was a guy who I used to work with who made me so damn mad every day. He’d come in late, leave early, take long lunches- that’s STEALING from the company when you don’t put in a full 40 hours! Because we weren’t doing well, our corporate office mandated we lay off 5 people. He was one of them.

It’s just you, the boss, and the secretary? Does that make up the three people? Yeah, there’s not much you can do. You can try and approach your boss about it, but tread lightly. If you like your job otherwise, I’d consider it a necessary evil. Even a new job won’t get you away from slackers. I should know- my company has been through 3 rounds of layoffs and are completely bare bones, no extra people. I STILL have a few slackers in my office.
