To Lie or Not to Lie (2)

“The naked truth is better than the best dressed lie” ~Ann Landers

Every week I am going to pose a question to solicit your HONEST response.  Please take as much writing space as needed in order to justify your answer.  Also feel free to engage with others who will offer their own responses but I do ask that you be respectful of the other responses—-even when you disagree. 

OK?

Question of the Week:

Your coworker has a project that’s overdue and asks you for help.  You give it to him.  During a meeting, the boss raves about the work your coworker did and, as a result, he is going to get a bonus.  How do you react?  If you say anything, you could jeopardize him getting fired since he has been treading on thin ice with all of his overdue projects.

Would you sit quietly and let your coworker take all the credit for the work you HELPED out with?

  1. Sit quietly. I didn’t help the coworker to make myself look ‘good’ in the boss’s eye or to get a bonus. The universe will bring me my reward for this act at some other time and most likely NOT from this worker or his boss. In that I have Faith.

  2. It was the co-worker’s project. They had the wisdom to ask for help. When the boss raved, they should have spoken up and said something like “I could not have done it without . . .” Since that didn’t happen, if it is bothering you, I’d talk to the co-worker, tell her/him how I felt. If not put right, odds are I’d not be so willing to help out a second time.

  3. Sit quietly and let your co-worker have his/her time in the spotlight. God loves a cheerful giver – whether it’s giving of your money, time or intellect, God loves a giver nonetheless. Your time will come . . . when you deserve it least and need it most. That is the real art of leading by example and giving out of gratitude.
