Contemptuous, Lying, Sneaky Weasels and Their Filthy, Scabrous, Weasley Lies
(With all due apologies to Ron, Ginny, Fred, George, Charlie, Bill, Percy, Molly and Aurthur)
Okay, so this weasel I am about to rant about is not so sneaky. In fact this weasel is a bit of a slacker. Given the nature of blogging about work and my need to respect the integrity of the institution I work for, I need to keep this oblique. I need to blow off steam, and writing this seems the best way to do it. I had a complaint filed against me by someone who has obviously got it out for me: the individual has grossly misrepresented the nature and details of our dealings together. While I do have a temper and it can get up rather quickly, I do tend to be rather more patient on the job and am capable of reigning it in.
The male in question kept flaunting the rules of the institution, violating "no go" storage and construction areas and expecting special treatment. This was back in March of this year and he ran afoul of me and my co-workers on several occasions before being spoken more severely on the final occasion. He has accused me of seizing and searching his personal belongings in May, but fortunately that instance was caught on camera and two co-workers reviewed the footage that shows the innocence of the situation. In retrospect soon after it happened, I had wondered if he wasn't trying to trap me with his actions. Said male ran afoul of at least three other people I work with, yet he chooses to focus in on me. All this because he was unable to get his own way on two different occasions.
After the non-incident-incident in May, the male stated he wanted to file a complaint against me so I gave him the contact number and the names of three people he could register his complaint with. He finally filed his complaint last week in the middle of October. I was allegedly being hostile and ranting at to people for no reason. I had to raise my voice but that was because the distance between us was great, I had to remain where I was and no one else could make it in time. Apparently, this event caused the male painful pangs in his psyche and he just couldn't take it anymore.
The complaint is libelous and his witnesses are lying through their teeth. He states his girlfriend was there, but there was no woman with him on any occasion. (unless the one guy that was with him on the first encounter was a pre-op transsexual who still dressed and acted exactly like a guy) He was alone on our second encounter and I am the one with a witness. Their were a couple of other encounters he mentioned but they never happened - or at least he has chosen to apply them to me. He states he is uncomfortable and feels unsafe when I am on campus.
Fortunately, the company and the institution don't seem to be taking the guy very seriously as I had forewarned them that he was intending to file a complaint. In fact, I am still on a list for promotion and a raise and my on-site duties are being expanded in a positive way. But it does bother me that someone feels the need to fabricate crap about me because they got their wrist slapped a few times when they were very much in the wrong. What worries me even more is some insipid, spiteful git like this could end up in a position of authority and responsibility without learning to take resposibility for or to accept the fault that lies in his own actions.
