The tendency of women in a professional setting, when in trouble, to blame or include other coworkers rather
than accept responsibility, or even cover for them. It's derived from the idea
that crabs in a boiling
pot of water will claw at and drag each other down rather
oneself to see any other succeed.
Mike said I need to stop crab potting him, but it's not fair I got yelled
at for being late when he was too.
