My fi called me an hour ago in near tears. She had been contacted by her employment agency, in which they had told her that because of the problems she had been having with her hands, she was going to be replaced. This problem was just some minor pains from typing without a wrist rest (which was corrected with the use of said device).<br><br><br><br>
I (being rather irate) told her to speak to her supervisor about this, as it seemed ludicrous to let someone go because their hand had been sore for a few days. Thats when we found out the truth behind this whole deal. It turns out that a woman in the office who is known for sh*t disturbing, embellishing stories, and gossiping had gone to the supervisor of my fis supervisor. She had told her that my fi was in severe pain and could only type with one hand. This supervisor then called the employment agency to have my fi replaced. Apparently my fis supervisor had no idea this was even going on.<br><br><br><br>
Things have been cleared up, and my fi still has her job. Im so mad though. I know its not my place to do so, but I really want to go down to that office and give that gossiping b*tch a piece of my mind. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":mad:">

I feel you. Some people thrive on the drama they can create. It gives them a sense of power in an otherwise powerless world. It's sad, really. It's also, unfortunately, the source of far too many unproductive politics in the office. I'm glad she got her job back. Was there not even a conversation had with this gossip?

Im not sure. My fi didnt mention if her supervisor had had a talk with the gossip queen. I know my fi wont confront her, as she is just a temp and the gossip works full time. There is a slim chance my fi may be hired on full time (which aside from job security, would get the two of us dental and medical coverage), so she doesnt want to rock the boat in any way.

ah. my bf is a temp and is getting fed up with certain aspects of his job as well, but in the same situation. he's hoping to get hired on full time which would mean a big pay increase and insanely good benefits, so he's playing nice until he finds out. but if they pass him over again i think he might freak out. it's tough never knowing how long the job will actually last and always wondering if it's worth the bull*&$% that comes with it.
