  • If it's true, nothing, because it's none of my business. If it's not true, I will broadcast it all around that the new co-worker is a liar and should be dismissed for starting false rumours. I couldn't care less about other people's sexual affairs, but I do not tolerate lies and I tolerate false accusation even less.
  • I would not do anything. Best not to play the gossip game at all.

      I totally agree with you on that one, officegirl. However, I will still do absolutely anything to stamp out false accusation, no matter what I have to do. Since the "gossip game" is often to blame for that, then stamping out the "gossip game" is a totally excellent solution.
  • Thanks guys for your recommendations. I'm not okay with malicious gossip.
  • i would just stay out of it since theres nothing you can do about it anyways
  • You tell the person who told you that you do not gossip or get involved with office politics. Shut down the gossip immediately. Then you keep your mouth shut. The gossip might be true and you embarrass your boss or the goodwill goes out the door because you know. The gossip might be untrue and your boss gets irate that you are listening to gossip or being accusatory and you are no longer friends and you walk the line between employment and unemployment. Do NOT get involved!
