Lazy people

I get really annoyed with lazy people.  Take some of  my coworkers.  How hard is it to downstack your own damned freight?  Is it really THAT much of an inconvenience to DO YOUR JOB?  Why is is that I can downstack MY freight, plus the freight of 3 other aisles, and still get my shit done, but they can't be bothered?  And why does NO ONE ever freakin' say "Thank you"?  Why is it that nobody else wants to work as a TEAM to get things done?  I like to work independently, don't get me wrong, but when it comes to getting everyone else's stuff out to the sales floor, it really should be a team effort, and not just one or two people doing everyone else's work for them.  They all just sit back and wait for someone else to do the stuff for them, either that or they wait to be TOLD to do it by management, and they KNOW what needs to be done and what is  expected, so why shouldn't they just go ahead and DO it? 

Normally, I try to make sure everyone's stuff gets to their area.  I try to downstack as much as I can so that the back room gets cleared for the guys who work back there since it's not their jobs to get the nightly freight out to the floor.  I'm tired of doing it for everyone else.  Last night, I said no.  I didn't do ANYONE else's work.  Ya know what happened?  There was crap all over the place, stuff didn't get done, and I left at 7 with all my work done (except a little zoning, but 7 AM was my cut-off this morning, so I left it for once).  I feel bad for the manager on duty last night, but it's not my job to make sure everyone else has their stuff where it needs to be.  I think I might do it again tonight as well.  Bunch of lazy-assed people.

You know, there are 2 kinds of people in the world... Givers and takers.
You are a giver and sounds like you work with a bunch of takers! Being a giver too, I understand your frustration, so if you figure out how to make them do their own work, let me know!
