Sheltered life

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.

I hate backstabbing and gossiping. Fortunately for me I do my best to be as straightforward with people as humanly possible. I live as transparently as possible. I hope you enjoy your new position!

That aside, congrats on the new blog! I have always enjoyed following your blog. =)

Hey! Great to see you back, Sue and congratulations on the new position. Unfortunately, this sort of backstabbing seems to be rife in working environments these days. I wonder if it's a result of people being, or feeling, under so much pressure at work.

Given the positions that we hold, our environment being predominantly female, it's only natural that backstabbing and gossiping are the norm.

Wouldn't it be refreshing if it weren't?

As for your blog and how it looks, it's up to you doll, it's your blog do what you will. If you should choose, the offer was extended to Moonie as it shall be to you...if you want any funstuff, lemme know, I'll be more than happy to give you the link.

Glad to see you back *MUUUAHHH*
