Hi, I am a Med-Surg/Ortho RN. I am sick and tired of working with a bunch of people that sit around and talk about others! I consider myself a honest and assertive person and stand up for what I believe in. I have seen that other people on my unit can't stand that and now are turning the tables on me. I believe that if you are going to say something about someone, you are better off telling that person to their face rather than behind their backs. I also feel that if someone has something bad to say about that person to me, I will be true to the person and stand in their place. This happened to me. I stuck in there and then told me true friend what had happened and now all of suddened I am a liar. Next time I will keep my mouth shut--but it is hard because I know that it won't stop. Anyways, I am looking for a new job! YAY! Is it like this everywhere?
