  • Laugh all the way to the bank. It's really all about the money. Who cares about what others say & think. You are still going to get a paycheck every week so F*ck them all! No one there hasn't had their pride hurt at one time. Think positive!

  • When people talk about you behind your back or cut you down, remember they're taking time out of their pathetic little lives to think about you. That's a paraphrase from the signature line that MichiganMom has on CM, and it's helped me a lot to put things in perspective.

    Their talking behind your back is their problem. Only you wasting time worrying about it makes it yours.

  • Walk in to work like you always do. Pretend like it never happened. Be nice to everyone. It will trip them out. Wondering what you are on.

  • SMILE AND ACT CONFIDENT! If anyone brings up the incident , joke about it and laugh it off! Don't let THEM get to you!

  • This too shall pass. My guess is it won't be long before they find something else to natter about. Carry on and don't give them anything else to add to the drama.

  • Getting egg on your face is one thing that can be gotten over. Remember everyone has done things that make them look silly its easier to get over it and laugh if you do.
