Why do bosses put up with slackers?

It's bad for morale and a kick in the a## to people who are doing their job.

Is this a common problem or do I just have a spineless boss?

I was wondering the same thing. My boss favors all the kiss ass lazy workers and all of us who work are asses of, shes a total bitch to. Oh well least I get a paycheck out of it and its only 8hrs of my time. But it would be nice to be noticed for once.

I dunno. At my husband's job, it costs more to train someone knew that might not stay long-term then it does to have a lazy person that shows up and does some work every day, even if it's not as much as the rest. While they are in training for 12 weeks or so they aren't working, so that's 3 months of no income or work being done to train a replacement.

Ask me how you can be of at least average intelligence!

It's pretty common, unfortunately.

I think part of its a spineless boss, my friend worked in a dental office and she had to quit because her kids were starting school and she had to be home in time for the bus. The Dentist she works for offered to have her work part time at home to do the paperwork because her replacement is a slacker, but the boss has allowed the other receptionist be a slacker for 15 years. I told my friend her boss is either to nice or a pansy for allowing this to go on and should just fire both of them.
