Question: “Due to downsizing and others leaving the company, an immature
co-worker was promoted to a low-level managerial position. Despite her
new position, she badmouths the company and has a real "gloom and doom"
attitude. I am tired of all her bashing and negativity. I've asked her
to stop and also reminded her that she shouldn't do that in front of
her employees now that she's in a position of authority. But it's like
talking to a brick wall. We're friends, but she's really driving a
wedge between us. Does anyone have a trick to make her stop? I can't
take it too much longer before I snap.” — Maisy
