Heavens, I kind of want to nominate me & my coworkers right now.
I work with 5 women. We're all a part of the same department. Ever since our boss left a month ago, one of them (Cindy) has been trying to become our spokesperson/be in charge of us. Cindy is amazing at her job, but terrible at any kind of management. She's PA, she's forgetful, she doesn't read all of her emails, she takes things personally, the list goes on & on.
Anyways, Big Boss (used to be our boss's boss, is now our boss), gave Cindy a project. We're all to weigh in & do research, but it's Cindy's project. Cindy seems to think that means that she dictates what we do, and we're supposed to write things up for her. Um, no. It's your project, you're the one who presents it, you're the one who write it up. So we're currently at a stalemate because she keeps telling me & one other coworker (we're the youngest; Cindy is in her early 50s) to get it all written up for her, and we keep pushing back & saying "No, this is your project, we've sent you all our research, you need to put it together and read over it & make sure it makes sense". And & then says "If you type it & print it & give it to me, I'll look at it & then make corrections for you". And again, we say "No, it's your project, you do it".
(Just to be clear, we are all equals. We all have the same position. So there is no reason why Cindy should think we're doing this).
Anyways, we need to present this to Big Boss before he leaves, and we're now at a stalemate, because we're not doing it for her, and she won't do it. Incredibly stupid, I know, but we're all willing to make this a hill that we die on, because we're so sick of her trying to tell us what to do & acting like she is our boss.
