So as the title says, I'm turning to you guys for advice in this situation.
So I'll start from the beginning. My cousin's fiance's little brother (he's 22) lives and has lived with them for the past few years. I'm sorta friends with him, even though sometimes I can't stand him. He's into anime and video games too, so we talk shop a lot about those things. But that's all we are, sorta friends.
Now here's the problem.
Awhile back he had a girlfriend, Sarah, who works at the local $ store. They didn't get along much, and she started telling him he wasn't allowed to have any girls, particularly me, as friends. He told me this, to which I said that was ridiculous. Guys and girls can just be friends and have nothing sexual between them, especially when one of them, me, is asexual. And I guess he told her I said this, and somehow turned that into me wanting him? She told him that I was just trying to steal him from her. And he flipped out on her saying that I would never do that, and that I had a girlfriend (which at the time I did) and in the end they broke up with her blaming me for 'stealing' him from her, and him being pissed at her.
Okay, so a few months pass and I think nothing of it. I start applying every where I can for jobs, including the $ store. At the time my cousin (who's fiance is the brother to the guy I'm talking about) works there and puts in a good word for me. Month or two goes by, no calls, but still I don't worry about it and reapply for the job opening that they have. This time I went in to let them know I applied (you doit online) and Sarah is there. First as I'm checking out the one cashier asks her to get me checked out because she had use the restroom. Sarah completely ignores my existence, and walks in the opposite direction. Then when the other cashier comes back and checks me out I ask about the job opening (which they had a sign out front for) and Sarah charges over and very rudely tells me there is no job opening. So I walk out, rather upset, but try to just forget about it. But it's been two weeks and the sign for the opening is still up, as well as the add in the greentab and on their website....
Ik Sarah is pretty close to the manager from what my cousin says, so I'm starting to think that she's trying to keep me from getting hired, all because I 'stole her boyfriend' who I'm seriously not even really friends with.
Idk what to do about this. Every time I go in there to get something now she's rude, or just flat out ignores me. And since she's tight with the manager, it's not like I'll be taken seriously if I complaint about her....
Any advice you guys can give me for this would be great!
