So I've been working at this place for about a month now. I recently found out that one of my bosses (one of the 3 assistant managers) told a gossipy coworker that I'm mentally disabled and he told everyone else that i work with
literally. I asked every last one of my coworkers and they all told me they heard the same thing from him and that he got this info from the assistant manager. This rumor has been around since i started working there. I know if i were actually mentally disabled or whatever i could sue, but I'm not. This has been bothering me since i heard about it. What should i do? Could i still sue/is it worth it? Am i overreacting?
This assistant manager and this coworker of mine are always gossiping and making up stories about people. Everyone else that i work with including the other managers are perfect. I'm sure if i went to my manager, he'd do something about it, but i fear his solution would be just a lame sit down then i have to continue working with these fools. I want them fired. Idk if I'm reaching or overreacting though.
My plan was to have a bunch of people i know call corporate to complain about the two of them (as customers) then have my coworkers complain to corporate and THEN sit down with her and the manager and discuss this rumor she started about me. All the complaints + me speaking with themanager would have to get her fired... Right?
I work in retail btw
Suggestions and comments pleeeaase
And please let me know if I'm overreacting lol
