So, this guy, he's not my boss, but he's the boss of the other department I have to work with, and he's been there for a long time, so everybody knows him. Apparently he doesn't like me, although he doesn't have the balls to say so to my face. He's been talking bad about me behind my back to practically everyone else in the office, including my boss, even though he has no supervision over my work or anything I do. What should I do? I'm already looking for a job somewhere else, but I'm not sure how long that will take.
If he didn't like me and said so to my face, that'd be one thing. The only thing he does to my face is make fun of my inability to form grammatically perfect sentences in French. I have done nothing but nice things for him, including getting him a sixer of Tsing Tao when he said he couldn't find it anywhere.
