I advised a young person to learn to document everything that goes on at their job. Something I was told when I was a young person.
They thought it was tedious but over time it became second nature and took only about 15 minutes; something they could even do on their break.
Well...this week said young person's boss tried to throw her under the bus for something he didn't do... it didn't work. She pulled up the specifics of that day and it became obvious it had nothing to do with her.
Now if she can only ride the wave of hatred emanating off her boss.
File this under: Life's Bruises and People Suck! :( poor thing....
This is a crappy situation. Back in the dark ages when I worked in an office environment, my direct boss made it a habit of taking credit for my work and for any ideas or solutions I came up with to improve service or streamline the work. He would come pick my brain, then go tell the boss my ideas as if they were his, then the boss would come tell me what a great idea Tom had! Didn't take me long to figure out that when Tom asked me something I should play dumb, then go directly to the boss and tell him my idea. Ticked Tom off but it was worth it and got me several raises and promotions.
I also had a CYA file listing everything of note that I did or any sort of problems I had at work, dated and witnessed by anyone else that was around to see the few problems I did have...just in case!
