When I hear all that nonsense, I think to myself, "Wow. What's wrong in your life that you have to rip or pick or step on someone else? Really? That's the best you can do to have a life worth living?" Seriously. It's like, do your job well, and don't worry about everyone else. But children will be children. So, sadly they are showing you and everyone else what they really are. . . and that's sad.
Too bad there can't be a "cone of silence" at the lunch table. I like people, but I do try to eat my lunch with my iPad when the company is all about being negative.
0Dec 5, '12 by NursieNurseLPNI strongly believe in "empathy". Treat others how you want to be treated. In such a stressful work environment (or school), i cannot for the life of me fathom why people want to start drama. Life would be so much easier if we could go to work happy, and have a welcoming environment, without drama. I really dont get why some people dont want that kind of easy going, respectful, team-oriented work place. Why make the day harder than it has to be????
Not too mention, whenever ive encountered the gossipers, or dramatic people, it doesnt matter what they say about another person. I automatically know never to trust someone who so easily talks behind anothers back. Especially over trivial matters such as another co workers personal life. I will forever remember that they gossip, and will keep them at arms length away at all times. So in a way, its nice to know who NOT to trust. Even if i knew something about someone else, my morals keep me from spreading their personal business. How lame is someone who thrives on anothers personal matters?
If it is something that will effect work, (patient care, negligence), then take it to the proper authorities, in confidence. Other than that, MYOB! Have some EMPATHY for others. How can they live with themselves?? GROW UP!

How sad for society, that bullying is in all aspects of our life in some form or another
