Sorry, that ignore it and do your best theory does not always work. Especially when that bad apple is permanently attached to the manager’s ****** and wraps herself in a saintly, angelic camaflauge. It DOES directly effect you no matter how much you try to avoid / ignore it. Especially when the bad apple is also a liar snitch as well, and intentionally getting innocent people into trouble because of it. This pattern of behavior is self serving: getting others into trouble diverts the attention away from her own negative qualities.
