Change "Millenial Mike" to "Mediocre Mike" because that is all he will be. If you see a better opportunity, go and get it. Go where the money is. I've relocated 3 times to move up and better my situation.

Someone like that will never be able to use sympathy to attain respect and upward momentum. That is reserved for the people who bust their butts even if they know there is no "thank you" waiting for them.


Bingo. Hopefully you will move on upwards and onwards Op, Mike will languish around the lower rungs.

That being said, anxiety is a real thing, but I definitely understand your frustration

I appreciate all the responses. We were most definitely told in the beginning this is a high stress high call volume job. They didn't pull any punches in the interview and typically only the strong survive the interview process.


But regardless if this guy has a disability or not its bull# he gets to sit around and do nothing and get paid while I bust my hump. I understand it is a real condition but if that's the case he needs to go on FMLA and get 90+ unpaid sick days and when he has an episode he needs to go home unpaid. It is literally bullcrap the guy is playing game a farting around all day while getting paid. If he can't work he needs to go home.

I feel like im taking crazy pills here with all these idiots who think just because they have a disability they deserve a check. Find a job you can do and do it.

If a person has such anxiety that they can not perform the minimum levels expected to perform the job they were hired for, then they should search for other employment. If I claim stress and I can only do 10 prescriptions an hour, even with a Dr's excuse I would be fired at the end of the day, and rightly so.

If I was not able to handle the stress of my job, then I would look for other employment.....not try and dupe my employer into accepting less productivity.

To the OP, do not get mad at the employee here.....it is the fault of the employer for allowing this to happen. People like this one are the reason so many places are hiring temp employees under contract. so they can weed out these type of cases without having unemployment, workman's comp, or disability claims to deal with.

Go wait by Mikes car & give Mike a real reason to see a doctor. After you find another place to work. Mike needs an arse-whooping. I'm pretty sure that will ease his anxiety. It will probably make you feel better as well

Know this is a rant and may I say a very legitimate one.
In a nutshell, Doctors note or not your REAL beef is with his immediate supervisor for not "managing". It certainly is possible and been done many times to hold an employee responsible for bad/inadequate job performance while not running afoul of any medical restrictions.

Just because your Boss is apparently wussing out on actually doing their job out of outdated and mistaken assumptions makes this whole thing worse.

You not able to take your entire lunch break is problematic since I'll "assume" you aren't being paid for that thirty minutes of extra work? Yeah....it's NOT ok to make you work off the clock unpaid. It's problematic as it's pretty much illegal and your manager is opening the company up to wage-legal issues. If nothing else you can ask to be paid for the extra time you're working to cover your co-workers calls.

Also can you ask to be moved so offending co-worker is out of your line of sight?
Another desk, another cubical? Sometimes a change of scenery within the same workspace is helpful.

YES - we have a cure for mental illness - just beat it out of people.

I am so impressed by this discussion from this SJW who is afraid that someone else isn't working as hard as he is for the same money.

We have all seen this guy. They are very hard to manage. Always comparing themselves to others (only those who he feels perform worse than he does and never to those he feels works better than him ).. This guy spends more time worrying about what the minimum amount of work he can do so that is not out working the worse of the worse, then he does working.

We had a kid in my AIT (advanced Individual Training) in the Army back in '05 who got a medical profile to masturbate after faking a suicide attempt (he drank a bottle of IBuprofin with shaving cream). He finished out the 6 months living in the day room with porn and his computer and was then removed from the Army. Yes, we all hated him (he took over our only common area). Oh yeah, this was in AZ too!
