A co-worker of mine is a very friendly person, and gets along with everyone in the office. The problem is that she never shuts up! She often comes to me and talks down other staff. I know that she in all likelihood cuts me down when she is chatting with others. I have told her before that she needs to speak to the person whom she is angry with, but that is not her style. Several times I have simply walked a way from her when she is talking!
I hate to hurt her feelings by telling her to just shut up, but her gossip has gotten her on the supervisors "crap list," and I am afraid that I could be next because she does often talk to me. What should I do?
