Office Drama: Who's the Real A**hole? 🎭

In an office where minor issues are usually overlooked, Steph's reporting spree has left her isolated from her co-workers. When our protagonist tries to help by offering honest advice, they end up being reported as well. Now, they've withdrawn their support, leaving Steph to struggle on her own. But as Steph points out, this could have consequences for the entire department, especially with potential cutbacks on the horizon. So, who's really in the wrong here? Is it Steph, the overzealous reporter, or our protagonist, who's now refusing to help? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🍿
