A friend posed this situation to me: What would you do?
You are new at a large agency and someone is going around lying on you. You command respect and a large paycheck but a person is walking around trying to make people think you two are an item. Everybody has heard the lies and they are all sitting back waiting until you lose everything if you succumb to this madness. Would you warn the person or sit back and hope they have the professionalism and the strength to resist temptation and be the professional they were hired to be?
