Today, my lazy manager, who blatantly spreads vicious rumors about employees, one which has ruined a marriage, has started targeting me because her lazy daughter was legally fired. Now I'm known around the office as "the whore who slept her way up the corporate ladder." FML

This situation brings karma on your side and your manager is gonna get double hit. I hope you'll be there to see it when it happens and I hope even more that your manager learns a lesson and fixes her behavior. Don't let it get to you.

I'm not employed(I'm a minor), so I don't have a full understanding of a work environment, but that sounds like harassment and you should report it to HR.

Oh well situations like this would never happen if people didn't believe in every sick rumor they heard. Don't get it, who cares anyhow what others have done, as long as people are kind and honest. But sorry op for having a terrible manager, keep your head up, you know the truth.

I think that if she always spread rumors around that people would eventually come to find out their untrue. Though some people's own lives are so shitty they feel the need to make everyone else's life just as bad.

#93 you corrected "hr" as "her" but I believe it is meant to be HR. Also, you left out

I don't blame you though; it's tough to get past the first half of that sentence.

An actual complaint could be slander by the manager, which is saying untrue things about the defendant which may affect his/her job performance or the aspect of performance by her or others. This can be a very serious law suit, which is why when most people call previous employers about their performance within the company they are only allowed to say whether or not that yes they did or did not work for their company. Because if they misspoke or said something that may not be true in the mind of the hiree then they could get sued. I would look into this op. may be the chance in a lifetime to shut her up...

Easy to say when you're payed minimum wage or close to it. When you work in an office and you've been working there for several years, generally quitting means serious time without a job especially in this economy. You just have to deal with it and hope people get kicked up the ladder.

Take a vacation and go job hunting! Then quit! You could end up in some deep shit if you stay at it. He could completely destroy your reputation an it would be even harder to find a job.

16 -- Or kicked OFF the ladder. In a situation like this, I'd do as others have recommended and go to HR. The manager's behavior is unacceptable. (Even if the OP DID really somehow sleep her way up the corporate ladder, spreading office rumors about it would be unacceptable.)

That is the definition of looking on the positive side.

"I'm already considered a whore by everyone here... Might as well live up to it and get the perks!"
