My co-worker always try to push her responsibilities to others actually especially to me and showoff like a boss, she is just a worker as others. But i try to be nice with her and always listen whenever she give me work. Since few days, i realize my silenceness give her more strength. I never fight with my co-worker in my entire work histry. I just want nice environment and be nice with each other. Need your advice.

This happen to me before, when I was just a new employee, there was this senior who push his work to me pretending that he was teaching me the basics. When I discovered that he was just lazying around, I started to ignore him or making alibi that I can not do what he was asking because the supervisor asked me to do a task that is urgent.

Maybe ask others what they would do in your place if a co-worker took the credit but did not do the work?

Sounds like she knows she can push off her work onto everyone else and not do anything herself. Sounds quite frustrating. Too bad your Boss is not aware. Hopefully somehow things can change there for the better to where this person will have to take some responsibility for a change.

That sounds frustrating. I get that you want to keep the peace but dont set a precedent to do all of your coworkers work.

That is very common to government offices especially when new employees come. I also experienced that. At first, I end up doing what they want me to do but later on..i got tired of their demands and I frown or dont talk much to them every time they asked me to do something that is not part of my job. Some will back out but there are just some who are very insensitive and lazy.

Once in a while I will do if he has some urgent work. But I wont entertain him every time because he will take advantage of it...

This is not okay for people to push their work responsibilities on others, but it does seem to happen way too often. No clue what I would do if this was happening to me.

I think you have to talk to them about this properly without making a dark scene.

Just say you can't this straightly. If one time means okay but many time means, you need to be straightforward. Just say, I am tired and I can't do this.
