I know this is long but I needed to vent.
So I found out yesterday by one of my really close coworker/friend that our director talked sh*t about me on the day (Monday) I couldn’t come in because I was away in Austin and my boyfriend got very sick, so sick he couldn’t drive me back home. I had sent her a message 2 days before letting her know he is my only ride back to Houston and he can’t drive me because he is sick. I get a response back with an “Ok” that’s it just Ok, so I thought that’s good she understands. Tuesday morning I come in and Immediately I am being interrogated by my director and her assistant asking me a bunch of questions about Monday and why I couldn’t come in and I was confused because I thought I had already told her but anyways I proceed to explain why I couldn’t come in because I was away in Austin and my bf was too sick to drive me back. They both go “OOOHHHH we thought you were here in Houston” I said “oh? I thought I put it in the message I sent to you” and she goes back to reread the message and says I didn’t mention anywhere that I was in Austin and she is right. BUT I had put “seeing as he is my only ride back to Houston” and I remember vividly telling both of them before the break that I was spending the holiday break in Austin. I guess she forgot, idk. Anyways my coworker/friend tells me today over lunch that on Monday when I couldn’t come in she came in yelling and absolutely angry at me and telling other employees this… “I CANNOT BELIEVE HER, I know she’s young, but she needs to GROW UP and drive herself!” My friend said she was telling everybody this! And while she is saying all of this she is yelling. My friend said she tried calming her down and telling her that I was away in Austin and my bf was too sick to drive me back but she thinks she was too mad to even listen to what she was saying! she was going crazy. Now, I completely understand being upset but don’t go around the workplace yelling at employees about me! Keep it to yourself! Or better yet. Tell it to my face!! I honestly could not believe what I was hearing… I was so upset I told my bf and he was more upset than I was. What do you guys think? This is making me want to quit and find another job because I feel so weird now knowing that she did this and didn’t talk to me about it or idk.. maybe ask me more questions? Like why just say “ok” but the next day take it out on other employees and talk bad about me to them! That’s so disrespectful and unprofessional..
