You work in an office. Generally, you are popular
with your coworkers. However, you discover that there are currently two
rumors circulating the office gossip mill, and both involve you. The
first rumor is that you got drunk at the office holiday party and had
sex with one of your married coworkers. This rumor is completely true,
but most people don’t believe it. The second rumor is that you have been
stealing hundreds of dollars of office supplies (and then selling them
to cover a gambling debt). This rumor is completely false, but virtually
everyone assumes it is factual. Which of these two rumors is most troubling to you?
The first one. If the second one isn't true, than I wouldn't waste much time stressing myself out over it. The first rumour is more troubling because even if most don't believe it, some might. It would only require those few to cost me my job should the offense had been seen as that serious. Therefore, this is me... troubled. Side-note: I'm not sure in which alternate reality any woman would leave their husband for me, but I must say I like it!
