credit grabber...

I personally do not mind if somebody is competing with me when it comes to accomplishing tasks. I even extend patience to those who are obviously are just riding to what you can do, for them to make their works easier. I don't mind not because I'm dumb... nor I allow them to be abusive. I don't because for me what's important is to have done the work more than being recognized for doing it. I just didn't feel good learning that a friend was a victim of a certain credit grabber. He was asked to draw a lot of things about a certain program and out of kindness to share his skills, he did the work. The drawings made were not that simple yet are true works of a creative imagination. It was too disappointing to have noticed a post made by the person who asked for help in a certain social networking site. He used the drawings as designs for an ID, maybe lay-outed or conceptualized by him but not necessarily designed by him. He posted the mentioned ID with the drawings made by my friend and with the label "designed by" followed by his name.... I just wonder how he could do it without even giving courtesy to the one who really did it... If I may quote Indira Gandhi, "there are two kinds of people: those who do the work and those who take the credit."

actually, if it were writing, it would be plagiarism. i think it is when it comes to all kinds of intellectual property, isn't it? i don't know. i am sure surprise he had the balls to take the chance.

Sad to note that there are people like that. I have also encountered people like that in my line of work. The worst thing is they are also the kind of people who talks a lot about how great they are and some cases backbite other people just to place themselves on top. Well, i just let them be, I am sure that as time goes by, such kind of people will go nowhere and will never excel as they move thru the journey of life.

I also hate this kind of attitude, it's just like saying gaining at other's expense. The credit grabber would not gain the recognition he's aiming for, anyway while the person he bullied will be blessed and gain more credits in other aspects unexpectedly.
