Betrayal in office
January 1, 2008 4:32am CST
I have this colleague whom I shared alot of things with. Just recently, she went to complain to the boss about me and even told me about it. Then she asked, "You are not angry right?" I have no idea what she is trying to do. How would you respond and what would you do if you were me?

I work at a retail store in the local mall near my house. I once put my cellphone under the cash cause I didnt want to bring it to the back and i got "infracted" for it becuase my coworker told on me. When my boss was informing me of the infraction, she told me about things my coworkers told her about me. Turns out little things i mentioned to them as jokes, they went and told her that i was doing it to get them in trouble on purpose. The thing about these situations is that you figure out who you can trust and its very unfortunate to find out that the people you thought you could trust are stabbing you in the back...usually i wouldnt mind, but when that happens, it makes it uncomfortable going into work knowing that youe coworkers are talking bout you behind your back.

I agree and I can fully identify with you!! I was dragging my feet to work at the thought of her. What a way to close the year. But I'm going to fight back. Am thinking of using the same method as her. But I need to get a new job first. What's more amazing is that she is still talking to me as though nothing had happened!!!

The first week I join this company, someone had already warned me about her. But she looked really innocent so I thought the other guy was trying to get me into trouble. Now I realised that he was merely trying to protect me. I'm planning a fight back. Not sure how yet...but I will.

I would really get affraid of this person, if there was another job opportunty I would even move away from the job, But because jobs are scarce, I would cut off any relationship from this dangerous person. I would then ask the boss to move me to another Department, because I couldnt possibly stand the sight of such a godamn traitor!

What did she complain to the boss about? Something in particular or your job performance? If it was your job performance, any GOOD boss would know that workers will talk. Workers are going to get mad at another worker and think they can run to the boss and talk crap about the other person to get them fired. The boss will see right through this. If it was something in particular, like something specific that you've done, and you haven't done it, don't worry about it. Just keep your head down and do your job to the best of your ability. If you DID do it, go to the boss and explain. But, as for the worker that complained about you, I would go on like nothing happened. Don't trust her with anything else, don't talk to her casually, keep things on a professional level. Show her that you don't care what she has to say! If she did it just to be annoying, let her know that she doesn't matter to you. Don't give her the credit she's looking for.
