Dorothy's Journey: Chapter 52 - Flying Monkeys, Chatter, and Gossip; Oh My!

Monday, August 27, 2018

Torn away from being fit, healthy and organized, Dorothy started her journey back.

Dorothy worked at her second job today. She was concerned about her first job. Last Friday the flying monkeys didn't wait till Dorothy was not in the room to talk about Dorothy! They complained about working conditions, hours, and pay. Then they made the statement that if they should ask to work more hours to expect to work less hours and get more pay! Dorothy was amazed they were being so outspoken! As she listened, it sounded as though they had discussed all this before! Dorothy wondered if she should say anything. Dorothy thought it would not accomplish anything and just went through the afternoon ducking and dodging their low flying comments.

Dorothy wondered if these flying monkeys would in some way put her in a bad enough light that management would let Dorothy go!? Thinking about this through the day and realizing since she was not at that job today there wasn't anything she could do about it; Ryan the courageous friend reminded Dorothy that she could handle what was decided either way. Courageous Ryan suggested she should just wear headphones and listen to music rather than the flying monkeys chatter tomorrow during the day.

Flying Monkeys, chatter and gossip; oh my! 5-4-3-2-1 Let's go!

    Office gossip is the very worst. Don't let yourself be sucked into their drama. They will use your words against you and drag you down.
