Luckily (?) I am the only one who does my job. No one else to pick up slack for.

I know! I get so mad, it feels like all I am doing is picking up her slack. I don't really talk to her anymore.

I hate lazy coworkers. Normally I just pick up the slack

I'm a Patient Care Assistant who worked with my fair share of lazy nurses. Frustrates me to no end.

 Thankfully I don't have to worry about any coworkers slacking off. We don't really have any projects that we can all work on since we all work different shifts. My supervisor did say that 2nd or 3rd shift should be the ones filing the paperwork since they're less busy but the 2 people I've shown the process to haven't bothered to help. I get annoyed having to do it myself but at least I know it gets done right.

And this is why I believe in merit raises.
