He said his wife was 12 weeks pregnant with their first child when he announced the pregnancy. The man managed a small staff of nine.
One of his employees became upset after overhearing that the couple had chosen a name to use when she had a baby.
“We chose a name that can be given to either a boy or a girl and is meaningful to our family,” the man said.
What’s even more strange, according to the man, is that the employee is not pregnant. Still, even when she said, “I don’t see why our use of the name means she can’t,” he said.
Since learning of the future child’s name, the man says his staff have been cold and “irritable” to him.
“She won’t talk to me unless she has no other choice and some of my other employees have come in because she is telling everyone who works here that I am such a bad boss. any”.

“I absolutely cannot believe that a person with this strange and irrational mindset would function in a completely normal, efficient, cooperative manner in every other aspect of the job.
“She is working so hard to create drama rather than nothing. That level of ferocious imaginary victimization had to be all over the place. “
Another told the poster to hint the employee about her “passive aggression”.
“She could be made to pack or pack it.”
