*Coffee Break Discussion: “Me Too, I Still Can’t Believe It Happened To Me”

As always I’m going to give you the very short version to an even longer story. I figured if you find this story interesting I welcome you to ask further questions in the comment selection below or submit a journal entry detailing your similar story. This is something that came out of left field.  Unfortunately, what we have become increasingly aware of is situations like this usually begins unexpectedly.

I was in my early twenties when a very well-known department store chain opened a story in my area. So I applied for a stock position and I was hired a few days later. Those that were hired was asked to helped merchandise the store before the store’s grand opening.

About three weeks after I started working at this department store. I noticed I was reassigned unknowingly to work in a different department by the Store Manager. My immediate supervisor officially told me about the change and added if I had any concerns I should speak to the Store Manager. I spoke with the Store Manager and was told I was switched based on the needs of the store.

The next day I started working in the new department. However, I immediately noticed every around me including the coworkers I became friendly with over the last three weeks changed how they interacted with me. Many often would stop talking whenever I was around. I would later learn that the Store Manager lied and told everyone that he and I were dating. The Assistant Store Manager knew it was a lie and never reported it and perhaps supported the lie by telling the other coworkers that it was true. I learned by the fourth or fifth week about the lie after my supervisor said, “I was told to be extra nice to you but I’m not going to kiss up to you because you’re dating the boss.”

    • BE PART OF THE NARRATIVE

      You’re absolutely right. I still can’t believe it happened. The person I’m today would have handled that situation completely different. I did confront the Store Manager which turned into a heated argument. What’s interesting is whenever I tell this story someone always asks if I sued the company. I didn’t but some days I wished I did.
