If an employee is being paid to work, and they are finished their work, I see no reason for them not to help another employee.

This woman may be her own worst enemy though by the way she handles the situation.

I agree with you that team work is important, in order for this machine to run smoothly all pieces have to be working together, if one of us falls behind because one person is slacking it kind of ruins the morale for the whole group doesn’t it? But maybe this woman is making people want to help her less by expecting it instead of being greatful when someone offers. as a previous post said, if an employee is being paid to work…


I’m kind of in a reverse situation, I have a coworker who NEVER offers to help. Any time I need a hand, he always tells me he is too busy to help. I used to just deal with it, because I mean really it’s not often I’m swamped – look right now I’m on here – So I never gave it two thoughts, until recently a supervisor asked me if I had any extra work or needed a hand to pull this “always Busy” Coworker into it because he spends a lot of time on his personal phone and its apparently so often that it’s drawn the attention of our uppers.

Well now I’m furious, I am the first person he runs to when he needs a hand but its too hard to pull himself away from whatever it is he’s doing to help me, now I want to help him less, but by doing so I’ll probably create a monster.
