Thank you for taking the time to read my over-stressed blog. Your advice was very much appreciated. I will know next time how to address such situations better so as not to involve others. Hind-sight is always 20/20. That being said I had a long talk with the co-worker that I spend the entire day working beside and was able to get a lot of things aired and smoothed over. Things are going much better. As for the rest. Time will smooth it over as they move on to the next big drama.
