I actually can't believe I made it 40 years before I was finally the subject of gossip...finger pointing...whispered conversations...
Actual long drawn out made up falsehoods about me started circulating work last week while I was out and seemed to get even worse after I got back.
Ever had conversations stop as you walk by?
If I wasn't on three different anti-anxiety medications I probably would have taken it with a lot less zen.
I just don't want to be fired for real now, and make the gossip come true.
Forgot about the loss of income - I just don't want these people to think they were right!
