I’m literally not a manager, I’m the newest employee here and this other coworker sits and talks to a female coworker that likes the attention for the first 50 minutes after clocking in. They don’t work and nobody seems to care. Infuriating as it is, I think this is not my problem to solve.

I’m thinking about telling the manager about it, because this person has accused me of not being a team player, but the last time I went to her with a problem (about an aggressive coworker that kept throwing tantrums and things to the floor to then kick them), she wanted me to talk to this other guy. WTF am I supposed to tell him? don’t act like a psychopath?

    Put your head down, do your job, and let it go. Get established at your employer, and if the coworker’s actions start affecting your work, then escalate. Any action now will not be beneficial. If you say something to the coworker, it’s not like they’re going to change their actions, and will more likely hold that against you, and likely talk to his peers. Talking to a manager will bring tattle tale / drama vibes and out you on radar.
