I Want To Kill This Waitress...but I Believe In Peace BITCH!!!

Substitute "Waitress" with "annoying chick I work with" and you'll have it just about right.

I don't understand how a whiny, selfish, lazy princess is still working. She has worked so hard at not working and pawning it off on everyone else, how can she still have a job? Now, this may just be the PMS talking, but she's really pissing me off!!

She handles one of the companies that we own, meaning she is supposed to be in charge of ALL of their paperwork, including keying in all of her invoices for said company. She has been in charge of it since the beginning of September. Since about the middle of September, she has managed to pawn all of her keying off on me. In October I told my supervisor that I didn't want to do it anymore. Last week, I spent 2 days keying all 1100 of her invoices that she won't touch. She claims that one of our bosses told her that she shouldn't key. I don't know why. Her fingers aren't broken. There isn't a piano tied to her ass. It isn't like she even has to do anything to them. They come to us precoded, prematched and in alphabetical order. Technically, if a person matches something in our department, they aren't supposed to enter it as well. If we lived and worked in perfect world, this theory would work, but we don't and everyone (except her) pitches in when we are down to the crunch.

Here's the thing. If she wasn't a horrendous shrew, I probably wouldn't mind. If anyone else were to ask me, I would probably be more likely, especially because I know anyone else in the department would ask my help but still be doing part of the work. I assumed we lived and worked in a society where people are accountable for doing their own work. Apparently she is exempt from this. She is the only person who does not drop her "work" to help out. She manages to have something that can't wait, but waited for the whole week or month before that. She seems to have an hour or more to be on the phone, for weeks on ends, sorting out her "boyfriend"'s insurance woes for him, or to call her sister in England, or to talk loudly in Polish to her mother. She managed to take 2-3 hours out of her "busy" schedule to decorate for Christmas one day last week. I decorated on my lunch. I kept working.

Perhaps I'm upset because she seems to be exempt from everything that the rest of us have to do. I'm upset because she doesn't seem to do her fair share. Apparently she used to cry when she had to key stuff. Suck it up buttercup. We all have to do things we don't like. I have to work with her every day. I have to clean up her crap and not get paid extra for it. I have to listen to her prattling on aimlessly for 8 hours a day and singing fucking Christmas carols badly.

Now, I want to go to my supervisor and complain. But I don't want to be a tattle. I mean, I'm not supposed to be focusing on what she's not doing, I'm supposed to be focusing on what I am doing. Is this a valid thing? Anyone with similar complaints of stuff? Talk to me folks. Even if you don't enjoy the song.

Oh God, Trish. Don't I know your pain. I thought she was supposed to key in the Rig stuff.

And I actually prefer her in a bad mood. At least she's not loud and singing annoying songs.

Yes, it's me. The one who wanted to shove her Christmas tree off her desk. :)
