  • When you figure it out, let me know. I've got one at mine who narcs only on selected people. I'm in trouble for having "a bad attitude", because we were ALL talking one day about little things that frustrate us (I didn't start the convo) but apparently, someone went to our boss and said I was being very "negative and hostile" with people...... \

    Yeah, that's why I have a whole history of emails saved that all say "thanks for your prompt service," "you're awesome!" etc. Obviously, my CS skills are lacking.

  • Honey you have some people that tell every little thing. There is nobody on this earth that does everything right. Have you forgot people have a little thing called accident. And you have people that watch you after work too.

  • if you have done nothing wrong, than ignore them. Sounds like the person does not have much of a life if they pay attention to what someone does outside of work and has to tellatale on everything someone does. try ignoring them, maybe they will GROW away from you, and hopefully the job.

  • Hide a potato in their desk. It will slowly rot and sink something awful. Doesn't really help with the snitching, but is amusing anyway. =)

    No really.
    I tried to just avoid this person at my job. Once I realized she was a snitch, I figure the less I said to her the less she had to say about me. That back-fired since she told our boss that I made her feel 'unwelcome'. Now I still avoid her but make sure I say Hi every time I see her loud enough so witnesses can hear. I am SOO FAKE. "Hi (smile)" Never her ask how she is bc I don't care and don't want to have a conversation with her.

    I called my dad to thank him for punishing us when we were tattle tales.

  • They usually get a buyout or transfer out of the company when they see that no one will promote them for their brown nosing. I usually ignore and blow off until they cross the line and then I just tell management about any insubortination.
