Problems in the Workplace...

Hello!
How is everyone :)
yay 2 more followers, thank you so much for thinking that this was a worthwhile blog for you to follow, welcome!


So I have something to talk about that bothered me today. At work there is a women who just bad mouths another one of my coworkers once she leaves to go home or she isn't in the room. "She doesn't do this right, she does this and that, blah blah blah". I really don't want to get involved in this kind of thing because wouldn't you hate to be the woman they are complaining about? and it's funny that people do it, because aren't we all a little self conscious and worried that people are talking about us when we are not around?
Also I really like the woman that she is complaining about, so I just kind of stare at this person who is complaining and I haven't worked closely with her before so I don't know how it is for her, well apparently it isn't fun.
My thought is, just don't get in the habit of discussing negatively a coworker with another one of your coworkers, it is a snowball effect because once you start that kind of complaining, it's hard to stop. Maybe she should discuss this with her boss but keep in away from other coworkers...
What are your thoughts?

Take care, and don't gossip! :)

  1. Ooo - I hate that! My tactic is usually the same as yours - hoping my negative body language gives the badmouthing person a clue. Sometimes it doesn't and you have to directly say, "This conversation makes me uncomfortable." But that doesn't always help...
