It’s that time again. First, I’d like to thank you all for being so hospitable to WT (Worker Twin) and I’d especially like to thank you for not asking her any embarrassing questions about yours truly. That was your golden opportunity…but thanks for not capitalizing on it.
Anyhoo, on to the matters at hand. How would I have handled last week's situation ?
Frankly, my friend would have been on the receiving end of an incredulous look and would have been told what s/he had said/done wasn’t funny. I’d then try and change the subject.
For this week:
You work with someone that repeatedly embellishes stories. Initially, you think it’s harmless enough. But as it continues you realize she’s (or he) is positioning herself (or himself) to look good to the boss and go for the promotion you wanted. What would you do ?
