🤔 Investigation reveals new colleague lied and was fired 🔥

A couple of months ago, events unfolded at work that revealed a new colleague's language skills were not what she had said they were. The situation escalated quickly as the colleague began rolling her eyes at the original poster in meetings, and talking behind their back. After the original poster took advice to document the incident, HR was brought in. Following a meeting with HR, the colleague was asked to leave after admitting she had lied about her language skills and other work experiences. The original poster is relieved that the situation is resolved and is confident it was not their fault.
