Is there anything I can do about a truly evil boss?
Then last week a similar thing happened to me. He asked me to do something (verbally), then I did it. Then there was minor backlash. So he called me into his office and he's nice and genuine "Sorry man, my bad, etc" then next thing I know I'm being written up with HR and he says I went rogue and did this on my own.
I know I can quit and find a new job, but is there any way I can bust this guy?
Unfortunately his boss is also his best friend, so I can't go that route.
It's not that the manager denies involvement, it's that he changes important details.
For instance let's say we think a computer is being attacked.
He specifically tells me what logging software to install.
So I do.
Then I unknowingly log sensitive information.
The company finds out and is furious.
He plays it off like "yes I asked you to log computer activity, but obviously not to log sensitive information, how dare you do that!"
