I work with another individual in an office (we work in a large office everyone has a roommate (s) ) She has been in her job for 15 years. I have been in my position for 5, in the past I was a trainer for our department.
Our company was purchased, we updated our computers June 2018. She asked lots of questions (that she should either know or has resources to look up) she's just lazy and asks me. I think it's unfair of her to constantly depend upon me to answer questions. I have my own job to do.
I did set a boundary with her, by letting her know that it creates a lot of workplace stress by depending on me to be her sole source. which of course she broke within 1/2 hour. I figured out, that she just smoozes me or knows how to manipulate me. In order that I answer questions....
Has anyone ever experienced this? It is hard for me to set boundaries ( this is a weakness of mine that I'm taking ownership of & working to improve), she knows this. Any suggestions on how to effectively handle this situation?
