Would you tattle on your fellow employee?

Asked by SuperMouse (30788points) July 29th, 2008

There is a new guy at the office. He is a goof off. He comes in late, leaves early, doesn’t get the job done. He is still on probation, but the boss has already had to counsel him about arriving on time and working a full shift. Today this fella was overheard telling another employee, “all I have to do is put in another month, then they’ll have too much time invested in me to fire me.” Would you tell the boss?

I wouldn’t. The company is obviously on to him. Let the company take care of it. But, I just don’t like tattling; I always think it will come back to haunt me.

let him hang himself. I think it looks better for you to just do your job and let the boss do his. If your asked about this guys performance then spill what you know. Others see what you see he’ll get what he deserves.

No. Take the high road. I can see nothing positive coming out of this for you. Do your work. If you are asked by your supervisor about his work, be factual and not dramatic.

If it doesn’t have anything to do with you and your job status, it’s none of your buisness….

Just let Karma take its course.

Of course if the opportunity for sneaky sabotage arises, well…you’re only human.

I agree with everyone else, I wouldn’t tattle, even if he deserves to be tattled on.
People may see you as a ‘tattletale’ haha..

Stopping Snitching! Snitching, either positive or negative, to me is something devious and untrustworthy people do to brown their boss. A person’s faults will always stay with them and will resuface at a time of judgement.

as many times as I have seen these people live long and fruitful lives like this, I agree with everyone else. Let the co. deal with it.
