Scenario #1: Roxanne works in a day care center. She has been observed arriving to work late and with a messy appearance. The other employees are doing some of Roxanne’s duties.

What might be some reasons for Roxanne’s behavior?
If given a similar situation in your workplace, should someone like Roxanne affect your own job responsibilities? Why or why not?
