Malicious Back Stabbing

Ok. I’m trying very hard right now to keep from punching my computer screen in anger. Why am I so angry? It’s because I have a person in my office who is trying his hardest to make my personal life hell by gossipping about me and my wife.

What do you do when someone in senior management repeatedly does this?

Let me give you a couple of examples and you tell me if i’m justified in being this angry. On numerous occassions when I have been absent from office due to either migrane headaches or my wife being down with the flu, this person has made it a point to call my wife’s boss (a friend of his) and double check if she’s at work and if not what reason she has given for not being there. He has even gone to the extent of making remarks to the effect of “Oh, don’t buy that sort of fairytales from the two of them, they’re just undependable and probably just hung-over from partying too much”. This has had the end result of my wife catching hell from her boss. She already has enough on her plate and certainly doesn’t need this shit!

I have worked at another agency where this person was again in senior management and had made remarks about me to my wife’s boss (knowing full well that she was a good friend of my in-laws). In short, he had said that I was a flop, who was always turning up for work drunk and was on the verge of losing my job. Naturally, this was passed on word for word to most of my in-laws.

Today, he’s gone and done it again! Once again successfully screwing things up for my wife at her office. I think the time has come for me to confront this person in front of the management (as he’s part of the senior management) and ask him if he’s doing this because he has a personal problem with me or is this just for his personal pleasure because he’s got nothing better to brighten up his sad life. It’s probably my fault for not nipping this in the bud when it started. But better late than never I guess.

I do know that if this continues, I will have to reconsider my options of working here. I have always hated office politics, but this is taking it to a new dimension.

Will keep you updated on what develops. Either way the discussion goes, one thing I do know is this HAS to stop today!

    Just walked out of the meeting. It seems there’s more to the picture than was first seen. It appears the comments and calls have been made from both sides of the fence. Anyways, the Head boss has promised to have a word with this person and clear the matter up tomorrow. I believe I owe him the chance at this before giving him an ultimatum. So, the saga will continue for at least another day.
