1) sleeping with the boss, the colleague or the subordinate;
2) not performing well at work; or
3) doing something that worth the bad-mouthing (farting in office, pilfering, tardiness);

you should not be worried about it. Suck it up.

But if the person is DIRECTLY interfering with your work, do what Strong Eagle said and have it documented. And be prepared to march into HR or manager's office like a champ.


Please tell me this is just sacarsm :roll:

I don't get it... unless you are so completely incompetent in playing office politics, why wouldn't you hammer the person that is trying to f*ck you over? It's how it works.

I always try to engage, to create a friend from an enemy... and if that doesn't work, with clean Warrior energy I will make that person pay.

I think Aragorn is referring to my comment on methane gas production in office.
