Starlinestables I agree completely with being a flake. I have a co worker, that needless to say has gained a reputation for lets just put it nicely, a person you simply can't count on to get the job done (how many people do we know of that is like this? And I know how this feels, about knowing the person left something
not done.... And than won't tell you
). If you say you'll do the job. Do it. Don't do it half way. Everyone there has a serious dislike for him, and we're just waiting to see what the bosses have to say about his general attitude. For me, I take the blame if it's my fault, if not I try and tell in who gave me the wrong information about what to do. I do admit though I have one flaw, I try and do more than one thing at a time (usually because the bosses know I will do what they ask, and it's usually multiple things at the same time.... And they know if I forget to do something, if this happens that I don't do it on purpose. Everyone knows that). And I usually make lists. I keep telling everyone this, but few ever do. I do reconize my flaws and always try and come up with a solution, to prevent myself from getting a reputation.
