It’s taken a few years, but I have developed some handy phrases for bad fairy management. Some are more confrontational than others:
“The person you’re talking about can discuss that with me.”

“…why on earth do you think I need to know this?”

“Sweetie, what this person is saying is only a problem if it affects my life or livelihood. Do you see anyone dumping me or firing me because of this person’s words?”

“And what are you getting by telling me this?”

“I’ve heard some interesting things about you. Do you want to hear them?”

“Dude, you’re an asshole.”
