Today, my co-worker spent the afternoon taking online personality quizzes and messaging everyone the results. She was particularly proud of one which told her she was a hard-working overachiever. My boss walked by just as the message for that one popped up and I got in trouble for slacking off. FML

damn bosses. They always happen to walk in at the wrong time.

Wow, just tell him what was really going on and that it was your coworker's fault. Hopefully he'll understand..

Sorry op, that sucks. Maybe you should do the same.

That wouldn't fix anything. The boss might walk past again to see her with another message open. Then her explanation afterwards wouldn't be justified. She'd be just like her co-worker.

And the boss might get mad that OP was taking personality quizzes instead of working. Some bosses can be unreasonable

So if someone is doing something bad and they don't get it trouble you should join them?

17 - hows the boss unreasonable? assuming the boss did not see the co-worker send the messages, the boss was right in getting annoyed at someone checking their phone on the job... its just bad luck it was op who was caught and not the co-worker

You never did state what you were doing op. I'd like to assume you were working...

damn bosses. They always happen to walk in at the wrong time.

Like when you're in the bathroom taking pictures of your junk.

in fact they know when it is the wrong time and walk right in...

Her boss just looks like she's doing her job. If she let it slide, then nobody would do work...

3 - or YOU suck, as an employee? kidding (thats if you were to have a job, because you are there to do WORK, not be on the phone/email. they dont suck for trying to make people to their job...)

Wow, just tell him what was really going on and that it was your coworker's fault. Hopefully he'll understand..

If this is a reoccuring thing tell her to take a test on WebMD. If she believes the personality tests then shell believe it when WebMD claims she has cancer.

Killer irony, unlucky timing though.

Its kind of sad for you to get an email like that and then get the boss to see it sorry OP

Don't check your messages...still she shouldn't be doing that you work at work not play around online

That sucks to get blamed for others laziness! Sorry OP fyl

That's ironic but Yeh fyl OP hope everything works out!
