Hi Jane,

I’ll give you a bit of background.

He had two different managers in HR meetings because he accused them of bullying him anything they asked him for a report on the ‘work’ he was doing.

Whenever Joe and I are team up to work on a project, he acts like he knows everything. I’ve worked here for years, I have no qualms against people bringing in new ideas. My only criticism of him is that he tells me what to do and leaves on these so-called breaks to play Clash of Clans on his phone! There’s

He is a drain on my time. But I am also not sure how to proceed. I don’t like the idea of getting someone fired.

– Sincerely, I work with an incompetent coworker
