First off, I know I probably can’t do much if anything about this, but I thought I would ask for advice anyway.
Background: Recently I organized a secret gift swap for the holidays at my new job. I got my assistant manager, who is around the same age/generation as I am, and got him what I thought was a hilariously ironic gift… Until I was out on the sales floor, and I ran into his girlfriend, who works in the same building. According to her, she “flipped out” when he brought home his gift and was talking about how cool I was to have gotten him “exactly what he wanted” (Well duh, we wrote down exactly what we wanted on the sign up sheet).I am friendly with him but I would not call us “friends”. He is my supervisor and I am not friends with him on social media. When I socialize with people in my department we are usually all together, never one on one. He always talks about her and their kids. Anyway, the girlfriend had stopped to tell me she added me on social media, and that she apparently thinks I’m a “total angel” and not a “b* trying to steal (her) man”. She then made a point of showing me her enormous diamond. I am not trying to steal her man, I’m happily married, which I’ve made sure my male coworkers know. I really, really do not want this person following me on social media. She creeps me out. How can I get her to step back without causing drama, or am I stuck now?

Block her FROM your social media. Seriously, she IS creepy and possessive.You didn’t do anything wrong other than get a good gift for the swap.I would have NOTHING to do with her WHATSOEVER, to chatting if you meet her (I’d just excuse myself and leave/walk away).And then I would just be professional at work and keep avoiding any “alone” time with him, unless it’s about work AT work.BUT…. I SURE as hell wouldn’t start walking on eggshells because she is insecure. Nor would I ALLOW her access to my social media and friends….Block her psycho ass from it all.
