Workplace woes

I believe, no, I strongly believe that I do all the work of my team at my workplace.

We are media people; we have a fast-paced environment, and people who know me can vouch for the fact that how bloody good I am under these kinds of circumstances. A good multi-tasker who is also an excellent team player, is vibrant, enthusiastic, adheres to deadlines with quality how I would describe myself.

But it gets way too much when I am not able to control these emerging bouts of doing more than I should put on the platter. Yes, it does not hurt me. Yes, I am giving my 100 per cent and a little more. Yes, I might be appreciated after all for what I am putting in. But it hurts so much to see your immediate senior not doing a thing of what is assigned to him/her and you playing a jack-of-all role and dragging on! Then why do I put in more; or even my full.

I believe that has something to do with the way I am. A sincere girl, or I would like to think so. I have always adhered to deadlines, reached classes on time, finished homework on time, never missed an exam or test; always produced or tried to produced the best of the contents possible. Basically, I do not take the shorter route; yes, I am lazy, but it does not come in the way of producing best results.

After spending some 3 years or more in corporate world, it sucks to get this feeling of doing more than required. I really do not mind it; but you know that gut-wrenching feeling of going and telling your boss and complaining about how some colleague is merely shoving his/her work on you just because they are busy Facebooking! Oh well, or because you have shown them how good you are and they are ready to pass on the work to you. Even if it is not a part of your job description!

Well, yes, that feeling surpasses me way too often these days. I know I should probably not care. But then, I want things to be fair. And that is something I truly truly believe in. Ha! Cutting the crap. Whom am I kidding? Can I just go and strangle the person I am mad at?!
