my most popular response to your question would be "i dont' give a rats azztack if i'm fired for stating facts, as i do not give way to rumors floating around the house, nor do i spread any. i have always been the type of character who speaks her mind openly, freely, boldly, and truthfully.....no bullcrappin' around goes on inside this mind, heart, or spirit. truth is my greatest weapon....no matter what!
that said......whenever i had any drama to relay regarding nursing issues that stunk like a skunk, i don't believe in telling those issues to the "downline" but i always go "upline" to a source that has power to make change. gossip is a when i work, so i do not allow others to come to me with gossip. i'll stop a person dead in their tracks, and say "if you haven't told the upline, don't tell the downline.
and.....my favorite quote to deal with issues like this is as follows:
it is better to be hated for who you are than loved for who you are not." -- andre gide
