Dear Anyone,

There has been a huge amount of gossiping going on at my work lately. I am guilty of it myself. I have never said anything mean or lied about anything before. I recently got in trouble for gossiping and I am being very professional now. I recently heard that someone was saying a lot of bad things about me that are not true. I don't get along great with this person and I am technically their supervisor when the store manager is not there. What should I do?
