    Out For Blood

    Ok so on Friday I was at work, I just got done taking a 30 minute escalation and I was leaving work in an hour and a half. I hadn't taken my last break yet, so I planned on notating this account and then going to break.

    So this girl I work with, keep in mind we are both supervisors, comes up to me and says "I'm leaving in 6 minutes, can you take this escalation for me?" While I was finishing notating this account, and then going to break. So I said "Well I would if I wasn't going to break in as soon as I'm done with this account."

    So she gets mad, and then she ends up staying like 23 minutes after her shift. Which it happens, sometimes people get stuck on long calls.

    Anyways she ends up telling our boss that I was just sitting at my computer for 30 minutes doing nothing while she was working extremely hard! (When in fact she was trying to dump her duties on to me.)

    My boss just asked me what my side of the story was, so I told her.

    Anyways I think she is out to get me now.

    So what do you guys think? Should I have taken the escalation off her hands so she could go home on time, and just have taken my break extremely late? Or did I do the right thing?

    I think you did the right thing, if only for your schedule adherence score.

    If she didn't like that, well tough cookies, she shouldn't be trying to dump work on her co-workers.

    but you might have an enemy on the office floor, and that's never fun~

    but unless she had something important to go to, all i have to say is, "Them's the breaks, kid!"

    I would say it depends on the relationship you had with the co-worker before this incident. If you guys were buddies before it happened then I would have taken the extra work but told her that I would be expecting the same kind of favor in the future. Once you start a give and take relationship like that with a co-worker it can make your life a lot easier, but there has to be a foundation of friendship for it to be successful in my opinion.

    You did the right thing.

    ... it would have even been right-er if you jabbed her in the rib while you passed by her.




    ....... no, no it wouldn't be right-er. I'm just in a punchin' mood.

    Yeah I agree, it would depend if I knew her, or on what mood I'm in. Sometimes Ican be extremely nice. But sometimes I planned on a break...so thats what I'm gonna do.
