Re: a bad fling with a coworker
I would go to the person and let them know that I'm sorry if they still harbored resentment, but to talk about my personal life at work is unacceptable. It will not win them any friends and will open them up as a target for gossip. I had a friend do that to me. She not only started telling my business, but made up some juicy additions. I sent her an email and told her to stop talking about me at work (I was to angry to have a face to face discussion). People actually thought much less of her because she ranted and raved, and gave me credit for holding my tongue.
