Word is going around that I'm about to get the boot. I've been working for our advertising firm for over 7 years, made them millions of dollars, but recently we lost a contract due to laptop malfunctions during a presentation. Me and my secretary tried to show a presentation on similar laptops, but those computers crashed. My boss thinks this happened due to incompetence, not the cheap laptops he brought that eveyone complains about, including a secretary he's fucking. Al, no one is gona hire me if my boss gets me fired! I'm old, plus this is a major red mark! What can I do to prevent him from dragging my name through the mud? He just ordered us to turn in all laptops to him for new ones.
Would have been nice if you told us the brand name and model of those laptops so we don't make the mistake of buying it. I hope your ass gets fired! :P
Anyway, it sounds like your boss is trying to cover his tracks with the new laptops, but there's just one problem, George probably used company funds to buy the old laptops as well as the new ones, so there's a record. Document the laptop malfunctions you had during the presentation as well as the complaints made about these machines by fellow employees. Make a formal complaint with your companies human resource office, or take this matter over your bosses head to his boss to point out the faulty laptops he brought. Start a blog and tell the world, and let your coworkers know because it will get back to the CEO's, but make no threats of blackmail like a dumbass, not even as a joke. No company wants it's name dragged through the mud over the internet for wrongly accussing someone for anothers persons incompetence. Last thing, pray your boss is not sleeping with his boss, or you're fucked!
