This week it seems like all I have been hearing is gossip from other co-workers..This is the kind of person I am at work–>I’m the kind of person that tries to stay away from drama or mess. I stay to myself at work. I mind my own business. I be in my own little world and don’t really listen to people conversations. I don’t disclose a lot of personal information about myself. However, people speculate or assume things about my life that isn’t true (i.e. I go out to the club and do other things that aren’t in my lifestyle).
Going back to the situation, there has been an ongoing situation going on in my workplace regarding one of my co-workers (let’s call her Mya) relationship with their boyfriend. It seems like everybody and their mama is into this girl’s business! I talk to Mya on a regular basis at work and we take lunch breaks together. I, however, don’t try to be in her business…she feels comfortable telling me what is going with her life. She comes to me first, not the other way around..On top of that, I hear other people’s business through other people (I don’t voluntarily go to other people and ask for people’s business). I’m getting to point I tired of hearing gossip and rumors..I can tell you that I have messy people at work..I try to stay away from them as much as possible..If I’m around a messy person, I’m very selective with what I say around them.
Does anyone know how to deal w/ workplace gossip? If so please tell me!! lol! OAS: Dani, I remember you writing about this topic a while back..God bless! ~Venus~
