So my roommate and I work at the same place. She's the reason I even knew they had an opening in the first place. She's been trying to get me to apply there for a year and I finally decided to give it a try and I got hired.
Well today I'm talking with my manager. She's super cool, the best manager anyone could ask for, but she told me she was going to have to start getting a little stricter because upper management was getting on her back. I told her she didn't have anything to worry about anything from me because I would never cop an attitude at work or do anything else against the rules (reading, cell phones, drinking *coffee*).
She kind of gave me a weird look and proceeded to tell me that before I got hired "someone" told her that I was a messy, unreliable, *witch* and that she shouldn't hire me. She was super worried about it and she and upper management had planned to fire me before my probationary period was up.
Of course once she got to know me she found out that what this person said is the complete opposite of who I really am.
After a little digging I found out that my roommate (and one of my closest friends) is the one who told her all this stuff.
I'm so upset :( I promised my manager that I wouldn't say anything. The last thing she (and I) want is to start drama but I'm so hurt. I try so hard to always be polite and go out of my way to be a good friend/ roommate and I always end up stabbed in the back. Now I have to live with this girl knowing that the way she acts towards me isn't the way she really feels.
I don't know what to do. I can't start anything but how can I just pretend that nothing is wrong?
The worst part is is that this girl is pretty much the only person I hang out with. I have like 0 *non-forum* friends and I really thought I could trust her. So now I'm just hiding in my room under the pretense of "homework" trying to decide between crying and screaming.
