I have cow-workers that I have enabled to show up late, take 2 hour lunches, and leave early.
They are perfectly happy showing me their failed code and have me fix it.
I do the work, they get the credit.
If I point out that I deserve credit for finally getting the thing wotking the word I hear most often is "Trivial".
My fault for allowing it, would like to finf a manager that cared though.
