Reader Asks: Should I Tattle on My Co-Worker?

Check out this anonymous post from our Savvy Community. Weigh in with your comments below!

I have a co-worker who I do not get along with, and my boss is quite aware of this.

Said co-worker likes to take advantage of every situation, and it's really getting on my nerves. His wife is pregnant and having "complications," so he "can't be at work." I'm friends with her on Facebook and she is constantly posting pictures of her going out at night. I'm at my wits end. Yesterday, he left early because his wife was "having water retention problems." Soon after, she started documenting their bar hopping on Facebook...multiple mobile uploads throughout the night, featuring them at a popular bar known for their Tuesday night specials. Today, my boss informed me that his wife is still not feeling well, and so my co-worker will not be in again.

This is ridiciluous. We are paid salary, so he gets paid whether he shows up or not. Should I show my boss the pictures? This is probably the 50th time this has happened. I'm afraid it will backfire on me, since my boss knows my co-worker and I don't get along (because he's always pulling cr@p like this).
