It’s A Mistake To Point Out Mistakes

, , , , | Working | November 28, 2019

(One of my coworkers is extremely incompetent. She does not understand how the business operates, anyone else’s jobs, or how to perform her own job. Unfortunately, she has protected status at my work. This conversation happened today.)

Boss: “[Coworker] has been complaining about you.”

Me: “Why?”

Boss: “She says you have been bullying her.”

Me: “Seriously? When?”

Boss: “Pointing out mistakes.”

Me: “Her mistakes cause problems for the company and my job. Her mistakes go on to be my problem to deal with. They cause problems for the customers that the customers call me about.”

Boss: “It doesn’t matter. I don’t want to hear it.”

(Effectively, I was just given permission to let hundreds of mistakes happen, told to accept the increasing of my own workload, and basically told to allow big problems with serious financial consequences for us and the customer to happen.)
