I have been given the opportunity to train in a supervisory position at work. It has truly been an eye opener - by that I don't mean the work involved, but the gossiping and backstabbing that goes on behind the scenes.
I feel I know far more about certain individuals now than I had ever cared to or needed to know.
I also know who the problem children are - who they are watching and what the alleged transgressions are.
The scales have fallen from my eyes and in some ways it's disappointing to me to discover that the people whom I once looked up to and admired, are in fact "human" like the rest of us.
