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.
