Ah Linda:

She really does need to be there. If she wasn't there how on earth would she be able to share in the grapevine! lol

HA, very good description! YES I have one of those sitting in front of me. Thank goodness she retired so she only comes in 2 days a week. When she is here she's buzzing around the office, which makes me nervous. SIT DOWN! STOP meddling. I don't do anything - just ignore it, it's not my place but I don't think she really has to be here at all.

I am that woman! Just kidding - lol. I actually don't enjoy gossiping at all and I am the only real employee at the office. The others are individual business owners that just rent office space (like a brokerage.) They tend to drop in do a few copies and grab some forms and leave so I spend a lot of time alone.

But that doesn't mean office gossip doesn't happen. I realized once that things I had mentioned withinsome people's hearing in the office about myself came back to me filtered up to the boss. Even reports about my inappropriate use of the office computer (facebook, sparkpeople, and games - I've never missed a deadline) seem to be reported. So I began to place little "gems" of personal news to find out who I could trust. It seems that both of the two men in our office report directly to my boss. (Gems returned to me within 24 hrs or sooner.) Four of the women tend to keep the smaller gems but if it looks like anything that might be considered a little juicy - like a date - my boss is asking me about it within a couple of days.

I've just learnt not to give them any fuel. I do my job talk about the weather or the road conditions and keep everything else to myself. I do laugh because our office is notorious for bad communication. It's not uncommon for people to say there is poor communication here. Maybe, I should start the office memos with " Did you hear what so & so is planning next week? Well, let me tell you...."

Heva a great day!

I have these 2 women that have put me in the middle of their feuding. One is our supervisor and the other is our accountant. The supervisor vents to me that the accountant is doing her job correctly, then the accountant complains to me that the supervisor is being too hard on her. I let them vent but don't offer advice or any comments about the other one. Sooo stressful.

She works at every office, be nice to her but don't offer to do her work, be busy when she wants to stand at you desk or cube and talk, even if you have to walk away. be sure to lock your computer though. either the boss knows she is and choices to ignore it or doesn't know but will find out if everyone quits doing her job for her. let her whine who cares.

You have one of those too!!! Maybe they are related. I haven't figured out how to deal with her, but have found that eventually it will come around and bite her in the ...!

30 year plus, taddle tale, claims she doesn't like gossip but spreads it all. No matter what you or anyone else says she has to have the last word. Jumps up and goes the extra mile, then wines and cries when they give her more resposibility, Knows everything and will go out of her way to prove you wrong. If so how do you deal with her/him without strangling said person?

Doing this for me, so I can be there for them!
