When a large group are assigned to a big rush job, one or more quietly disappear.. only to suddenly appear for a short while, as though performing tasks involved in the project. NOT! They are slipping off to text or other private tasks of their own. They are.. 'ghosting the job'.
Boss: 'Hey you guys - have you seen Russ or Dave?' Um.. yeah, they were just here a second ago.. but I can't see them now. Oh, here they come. Boss: 'You two are screwing the pooch! Quit ghosting the job and get busy!!'
