His Neck or Mine
I was out of work for a while before I started my new job. A week after I started, my boss told me to send a written performance warning to a man I now supervise. It would be his second warning, and if he screwed up again, he’d be fired. I didn’t want to do it because I really didn’t know enough about his record. He’s in his 50s, and he’s been there 5 years. I know it’ll be hard for him to get another job. I didn’t want to risk my job, so I did it.
