I'm sorry to know this, but the cold fact is that politics and nasty stuff like that will exist at some degree or other in every place. Sometimes you may be directly affected as a result, but you can't do a lot about it. Grumble and murmur, but get your job done and take away your pay. That's how it is.
However, if things get beyond control, try and take it to someone who might be able to help you. Or quit them and move on to some place else (I did it the last time).
I know....actually I was really very upset that day..
I was trying to help someone & that person backstabbed me, that to for a work that was not my part of job, that made me loose my patience...
Anyways I was expecting that you will atleast write a sentence or two for my rant...
I am absolutely fine now as I was not in office at the time this issue started & it subsided when I came to office today, So I was lucky enough not to face them on that day
