Who’s really a deadbeat?

One reader didn’t agree with some of the “8 signs you work with a deadbeat” in a recent article.

“I think some of the items did not necessarily have anything to do with being a deadbeat and many signs that do were left out.

“Depending on a person’s comfort zone and personality, along with personal circumstances, [some deadbeat signs] just may be signs of shyness, too many troubles at home, a busy personal/family life, or unwillingness to pry into fellow employees’ personal aspirations unless invited. 

“Some employees volunteer with their churches or children’s schools and have no time for volunteering for causes at work. (If this was meant to imply a person refuses to volunteer for work projects when their own work is slow, then that’s another matter.) Deadbeat is a strong word to apply to people who have lives outside the office and would rather leave work at work.

“Conspicuously left off the list were employees who would rather read a book or work a puzzle than improve their minds and skills when their desks are slow. Also, those who are consistently late, absent, surly, uncooperative, put their work off on others, and refuse to play on the team should be added to this list.”

— Kathy, Legal Secretary in St. Louis, Mo.
