Rumor Has It

I heard a rumor yesterday. It was told to me by someone who claimed it came directly from the office manager (and I believe her).

The rumor was that we may not be getting Christmas bonuses this year because the practice may not have enough money.

It was also said that there was sometimes a question as to whether there was enough in the bank to make payroll.

I personally do not believe either.

The thing that blows my mind is WHY on earth would the OFIICE MANAGER spread this kind of stuff!

If it's true, it certainly isn't something all the employees need to be aware of. And if it isn't true, why say it to begin with? Just to stir up problems with people? To see how many people spread it and/or believed it?

How petty and juvenile, not to mention unprofessional to the nth degree! I sometimes can't believe that there are people like that in positions like that and they manage to keep their jobs.

It is amazing how some folks get so eat-up with the dumnmies that they will say anything.

I was once assigned the additional duty as Rumor Control Officer for our Battalion. If I hadn't heard one by 0900 I would start one. Tehee. snerx.

Hi Christina ~~ I sure hope the rumor is not true - right on Christmas. As you say if it's not, why worry people with it. Thank you for your comments - and I had a great week with Peter and Warren.
Thanks for your good wishes about my tests, I should know on Monday, and I feel OK, just tired. Take care, my friend, Love, Merle.

All I can say is that rumors piss me off. It's nothing more than childish crap and I really hope this rumor you've heard isn't true. Sounds like your office manager needs a lesson in office policy/etiquette.
