I have several coworkers in my department. On paper we are all equal, no one is the offically the manager, team leader nor even the lead worker. Our oversight from our actual manager is minimal.
We do have an unofficial leader, Coworker A, and I have good reason to believe she will be promoted in the near future. On a daily basis she has been asking me about Coworker B's attendence. Coworker B's attendance is afwul, she doesn't even show up approximately on time, leaves early, and takes VERY long breaks.
I'm guessing A is getting her ducks in a row to get B fired, but I'm still rather uncomfortable answering A's questions. It could come back to bite me if B doesn't get fired and I make an enemy within the company.
Is it worth it to answer A's questions, or should I simply say I'm uncomfortable answering them?
