Comment Accountability and CYA (Score 1) 548

"When someone above asks me to do something I know will be problematic, they will ultimately take responsibility for that decision and will not use me as a scapegoat to protect their own ass when the shit hits the fan. And even if they were to do so, my reams and reams of CYA documentation that document their ridiculous decision will serve as a magic talisman that prevents me from getting fired."

Comment I was gaslighted at work (Score 2) 433

by my manager. After getting my morale seriously pummelled for several months, I sent the CTO of our organization git blame logs that showing I was being beaten up for trivial things that my manager's most senior reports had in fact taught me to do and that they had coded and shipped out to clients on other projects my manager was overseeIng.

Needless to say...I was shown the door a few months later. This would have happened anyways, but at least by confronting the gaslighter with hard evidence I can look at myself in the mirror and I'm not the emotional wreck I'd be if I sat back and did nothing. I don't regret it in the least.

And just maybe I made small dent in that jerk's ability to gaslight others in the future.
