Stepping on Toes Ok, opinions

Stepping on Toes

Ok, opinions please.

I think I've mentioned before about the new guy at work not wanting to do his job but my job instead. Well he's only gotten worse and now it's really beginning to bug me.

Today I was waiting on getting some trial parts to measure and inspect before sending them out. Just about an hour ago I saw my boss in the lab and went to ask when they were going to be done. Turns out they have been done for a few hours and the lab guy (new guy) had already started to measure and inspect them, without telling me (it's my job). He just took it upon himself to do it. I was wondering why earlier he came looking for some calipers from me. He has helped out with large trials, but only because they were large and we only had a little time to do them in. Now bossman didn't say anything to lab guy about taking it upon himself to inspect and measure, but I feel lab guy is just stepping all over me.

My yearly review is coming up and I don't know if I should say anything to bossman about my feelings on what lab guy is doing or if I would just sound like a whiney person who can't share?

Suggestions, opinions?
