I’m in a bit of a tricky position. My immediate colleague is an older lady and I’ve always been impressed with her professionalism. Plus she’s a lovely person and fun to be around. We often have a good giggle throughout the day.
But lately things have been different. Our workplace is going through a lot of changes, especially with technology, and I think she’s intimidated by all of this. In a nutshell, she’s been dropping the ball quite a lot, which is so unlike her. Her slackness has meant a lot of extra work is now falling onto my shoulders, and I’m already busy enough as it is.
Oh Yak, what can I do about this? It’s such a delicate situation because I really do respect her as a colleague and as a person. But her attitude lately is driving me crazy!
Dear It’s Complicated,
Headbutt the bitch.
With kind regards,
