Accidents happen. Hopefully, not on the carpet. Or to your pet project (couldn't resist). But shoe chewing? That's a message. So is "forgetting" to inform you about a key meeting or spilling unflattering office gossip.

Sometimes the simple act of exposure will be enough to end the actions. If not, that's what HR is for. Keep records and share them if necessary.
