Don’t rush off to gossip
The last thing you need to do is have someone egg you on to handle a touchy situation. If you’re upset then you don’t need to run off to vent to another co-worker — unless you know they are level-headed. It might sound like a great idea but their opinions can actually do more harm to the situation than good. “Girl I can’t believe they said that.” “I wish someone would!” It’s not that they are trying to piss you off, but their reaction can cause a re-action on your part that will make something ugly really bad.
