I work in a small team of 5 and basically they are all a bunch of piss takers (says she posting on MN at 10am in the morning!! We all have internet privileges as we're a web based co.)
Not one of them - even the person who started 2 weeks ago - are ever on time? This can range from 10 minutes late to hours... my manager is a law unto herself but as she 'makes up the time' it's overlooked.
Of course muggins here is in on time every single day, if not 10 minutes early.
This is somehow expected though as I live much closer than everyone else?
Over the past year I have had a day and half sick. Everyone else is wracking up at least 5 days now? Manager is able to work from home so that's her off the hook yet I've dragged myself in day after day often on little sleep and in pain.
I am just so sick of it, it's almost as though my team know good old dependable mammanat222 is there to pick up the slack so they don't have to?
What benefits have I seen from being so conscientious? None what so ever.
I am obviously not going to start taking sick leave and rolling in late every day - it's just not in my nature - BUT seriously my team are piss takers right? The sickness may be genuine but the daily lateness is not on.
When I worked in an office, my policy was to look in the mirror each day. If I could smile at the person looking back at me, then I knew that I was ready to leave the house. I think that's all you can do.
