Boots employee SPIKED colleague's drink in shock L&D teaching

When a colleague is irritating you, there are numerous tactics to help make their presence more bearable. Whether it’s simply taking the high road and letting it slide, or politely confronting the situation in a way that doesn’t cause any conflict going forward, a simple conversation is often the solution.

    Absolutely no excuse for spiking her drink. If the colleague was ignoring requests about the water bottle, the pharmacist should have escalated it higher instead. I put some blame at the colleague's door for flouting the rules because that could be construed as unprofessional conduct - but that is not the way to deal with it!!!
