I sent an email telling on a coworker for lying. I wasn't going to, but I got so mad. This woman is being promoted even tho she keeps fucking up, and then she lies about it to stay out of trouble. Even contradicts herself in conversation if you point out smth she should've done or not done. It's infuriatingly transparent but my boss adores her. She completely takes advantage of that and I just. Ugh. So I wrote an email and now I'm anxious. I feel like I'll get talked to for calling her out.
I don’t know why I told you that. I just had to tell someone.
Oh babe *hugs you* I completely understand that urge, and the frustration you must have been feeling from being in that situation had to be terrible. Especially if this individual is being rewarded for their bad behavior, over other people who have to work harder to make up for their mistakes. Bringing this up to your boss could be a risk, depending on what type of person they are, but if you explained the situation in a respectful way, offering examples of how/when she’s lied and letting your boss know that you’re telling them for the good of the company, I don’t think there’s much chance it could blow back on you.
If you didn’t give examples, I would write some down now –– not to send, but just so you have them ready in your mind or on paper in case your boss asks later. Also, just doing something right now might be the best way to settle your nerves while you wait for a response.
And no matter what happens, no matter how your boss or coworker reacts, the most important thing is that you did what you believe is right, and you said what you believe needed to be said. So remember that, and breathe deep <3
