Running Late

This is directed to those co-workers who have time management issues.

Dear Co-Worker,

Once again I am leaving work late because you are unable to get to work in a timely manner.

Yes, occasionally I am arriving right on shift change. But out of a five day work week you arrive after the beginning of your shift on average three days a week. Which means I am working over before I can even brief you on what has happened and what is happening.

Briefing at shift change only takes a few minutes on average, but as you arrive late, the minutes add up. I added up three weeks worth and had 48 extra minutes of work. And I don't get paid for them, but you do.

So, dear co-worker, please be more considerate of your co-worker who is waiting to go home after a long shift. You like to leave work on time, don't you?

I have to say, this is so right on the money and should be said or written to those dispatchers who are never on time. I would like to give them the benefit of the doubt and think that they don't realize just how their tardiness effects the next shift, but sometimes I wonder if they even care.
