Manager: “Billy can you stock aisle three please?”
Billy: “Yes I will, but let me go to the bathroom first.”
(Billy goes to find Marie)
Billy: “Hey Marie, the manager said to go stock aisle three. I am done with all of my aisles, so I get to sit back in the back until it is time for me to clock out.”
Marie: “Uhm, okay, but why did the manager not come tell me?”
Billy: “She was too busy, so she told me to tell you.”
Marie: “Okay, I will go work on it.”
In the U.S today, the workplace has made a drastic change. Billy does not want to do his job that the manager assigned him, so Billy decides to pend it off on Marie.

A cashier only has to be at the registers and clean the registers. The hard worker goes for that extra push to make them just one step above others. For example, an employee was at work since eight that morning and was suppose to leave at three. Because of the weather, an employee calls into work. This employee offers to take his shift which was a three to nine. He was at work from eight A.M. to nine P.M. Determination and will power to step up makes an employee a hard worker.
