I agree with Leslie. BTW, if you come across the equipment that's broken, make a note on it yourself, and state that for further info, contact SuzyQ and her number. Maybe after she sees it, she may possibly get the message~~probably not, but you may get lucky.....These types of people always think it makes them indespensible, where it really just leaves a mess for everyone else to work around! And shame on your boss for chiding you for wanting to share information. You never said you wanted to take SuzyQ's responsibilities--heck she could still order, make delivery arrangements and such--but she should still let everyone know what's going on.
