How would you stop a coworker ( who you are supposed to be helping ) from venting frustrations about a slacker on the team? I spent all day in drama and texts about her performance and didn’t get anything done. This behavior ( slackers) has been elevated. I can tell my coworker is very frustrated but we’re not accomplishing anything by just bitching. I need time to work. And frankly I just don’t care about the drama anymore.
