Not So Confidential


There’s some information a coworker of mine has learned that is clearly confidential: the head of a client’s organization told this coworker that the company is laying off their entire team and has gone broke. Harsh, but clearly understood in these trying times. Coworker then tells all of us, and awaits a reaction before saying “I know, I feel bad talking to them when I know they’re getting laid off. But don’t tell anyone.”

Over the past few days this coworker has been giving the same story to 3 different people on the phone. And always ends the call with “I know, I feel bad talking to them when I know they’re getting laid off. But don’t tell anyone.” As if to feel like the person with pertinent information that everyone else must turn to.
