Big, Lying Mouth

I always had a rule to not date coworkers. However, for Michael, I made an exception. He was tall, tanned, and sweet — or so I thought. We went out and had a great dinner, and then said goodnight with a kiss and nothing more. The next day in work, I noticed people staring at me and some of them actually pointing and giggling like it was some kind of school for twelve year olds. One of my friends finally told me that Michael had announced to everyone that I was easy and he had slept with me the night before. I was furious. I eventually ended up finding another job because the rumors followed me from that day forward.
