Yes, this did happen. No, it is not clickbait.
So let me give you some background information to begin with, so you can understand what I had to deal with a couple of days ago. Basically, a month or so ago we had a coworker ,who’d been getting in trouble with the boss, walk out on their shift. It was obvious they’d planned to walk out leaving no one in the building but the guests. We ended up having two tablets stolen from our property and we were honestly lucky nothing else was taken. The ex coworker was barred from ever setting foot on the property again but their s/o still worked with us. The s/o was doing pretty decent work minus a few things here and there that were found in the rooms after they cleaned it but something happened a few days ago where they ended up getting fired.
Now, these two coworkers used to be friends with me. I actually hung out with both of them on a couple of occasions but after the first coworker walked out on us, I blocked them on all accounts because of what they did. I’m not going to remain friends with a man-child.
Back to what I was saying. The s/o was fired and in retaliation, the coworker that walked out on us screenshotted the message my boss sent to their s/o and sent the screenshot along with a fake text saying they and I had sex to the owner of the building. Basically, their plan was to get my manager and I in trouble but it didn’t work. The owner did request that my manager call me to make sure that even if we had sex that it was not on work property. I denied all of this because 1) I would not have sex with them even if they were the last person on the planet and 2) I wouldn’t have sex at work even if someone was offering me my wildest dreams. (I mean, dude, I’m asexual. Come on)
After my manager and I talked yesterday (for all of 5 minutes, thank goodness) the situation pretty much ended there. Except, now I feel like the owner is going to be breathing down my neck since he probably thinks the idiot and I are partners in crime. I was honestly considering legal action since this is considered defamation but it’s not like anything really came of this. I think it would be more time consuming and I wouldn’t get any money from it because I know they’re broke considering the people they got a loan from keep calling us. I’ll just wait for Mother Karma to feed them both a dose of their own medicine.
