It does not necessarily matter whether or not you can provide any practical help. People sometimes just want to let off steam on occasions when something has got them really wound up. * Or at others times practical help could be required, for instance it could be that you could have lots of work to do but other team members have not and are just talking or not doing anything work related, you would expect them to help you. Just as they would expect you to help them if the positions were reversed. ?? ?? ?? ?? Stephen Millman Page 1 19/08/2009 ...read more.
