Update on the workplace drama...

Well, here’s an update of sorts…

Of course, Monday night my co-workers and I googled the HELL out of Mr. X and came up with some past convictions of fraud as well some other things but nothing really shocking or scandalizing. It does make one wonder though, how well do you really know your co-workers? I mean, this guy was apparently lying his pants off – and getting away with it – and nobody knew!

This morning, on my way to the break room, I saw our office manager showing a security guard around and showing him where to conduct his patrol. So, apparently the organization has decided to step up security as a result of this incident. I’m going out on a limb here and assuming that this is a “cover your ass” kind of thing and not the result of an actual threat.

Also, I imagine that the background/security checks will be ramped up for future employees (I slipped through though, whew!) because if I can type in the guy’s name on google and see all this shit – chances are the HR people could have done the same.

I still haven’t heard anything about his girlfriend and since she works in an entirely different department two floors down, I haven’t had the opportunity to snoop express my concern. It’s not looking good for the guy. The level of excitement around here has dwindled back to normal levels but if anything new develops I’ll be sure to write something about it – if not on FB, then here for sure!

"Past convictions for fraud" says - like - a lot. Bernie Madoff stands to be convicted of fraud. 'Fraud' covers an AWFUL LOT of ground.

Hmmm, past convictions for fraud you say. I bet his name isn't even "Mr. X"

And y'all had security today??? This isn't run of the mill. Can't wait to hear how this pans out.

WHAT?! That's all you got? I've been salivating, waiting for an update (what? It gets kinda boring here at the farm). What in heck have you been doing? working?! That's no excuse! Priorities! You find out what that guy did, pronto!

Whew, look at that workplace drama! Something to make the day go by a little faster, I guess.
