GOOD FOR YOU! I love email and the fact that it is the very proof you need when you need it! She just dropped the ball and tried to blame you. I feel bad for her because that will not go over well with your higher up. But it’s her fault entirely!

At least she’s going to get busted and look bad, right?

I took this way too literally- I was like OMG you are in the hospital- get off of WB! xD

Our office is very cutthroat a lot of the time, so I’ve learned to always cover my tracks and keep my manager updated on projects and problems. Sounds like you handled the situation perfectly. Don’t worry, she’ll get hers. 🙂

This girl has just revealed her true character (or lack of it) to the boss.

Ha, I love when things like this happen, you have proof that the other person was wrong, and make THEM look bad instead 😀

My old workplace was like this- throw or get thrown- it really sucked, and eventually i took a paycut to leave.  My life is much better now.

For similar reasons I ask for everything in email whenever someone makes a request.  And if someone tells me verbally of a process change then I’ll email myself of the change and save it in a folder.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to reference them even a year later!  Good for you for having that email!

I fricken love email!! The amount of times that it have saved my butt everytime someone dropped the ball.

I do however have been in a position. Where i have recieved and email and accidently deleted it and havent done it. Been there but I always own  up to it. Life is so much easier if you just say sorry, human error there.
