Someone at my work recently got fired and I feel partly to blame.
He was our security supervisor, but he was really dense. He would do stupid things all the time. The final straw was when he told someone with a maintenance problem to call back in a few minutes when the phones where going to be transferred to the correct person.
The problem is that he didn't do that, I did. I'm the receptionist at my job and the person who called was trying to get in touch with another office who had their phones transferred to me until they got in. I didn't know who I could contact there and later found out that I could have called their maintenance guy directly.
Whoever complained must have told my boss in very general terms and she just assumed it was him. I didn't want to tell her it was me and look stupid. I figured he could go ahead and take the rap for that because it was expected of him. The next thing I knew he was fired. Now I'm feeling a bit guilty. Should I feel guilty? It really was just a matter of time before he was fired for countless other things he did. Now it's about a month after the fact and we have a new, much better security supervisor. Should I confess or let it be?
