Barlteby refuses to comply with the narrator's request to work with others in a more extroverted manner. Bartleby's refusal also causes a large amount of gossip and discussion among the other workers. Soon, the workers begin to resent his refusal to help in other capacities, which makes the narrator uncomfortable.
