The Quality Of Mercy Is Not Strained

     ...Which explains the lumps.

     They're into the second round of meetings in re last week's fiasco at work and it looks as if my quart of blame is going to be something I'd not expected.  --Not that any of us especially covered ourselves in glory that evening.

     Oh, yeah, not merely a heaping helping of Fail, a heaping bowl of improved Fail.  And that's all I can say.

While I am not sure of the specific's of your case, as someone who has sat through my fair share of 'critiques/fact findings/witch hunts' in the nuclear power business, it never failed to surprise me how you could be sitting there confidant YOU had done the right thing, and all the sudden, you were a target.

Ah, yes. The blamethrowing meetings.

Me, i always preface by saying " i did something wrong in the process of doing something, a concept with which many of you are unfamiliar."

The real danger is when they hold blamestorms and you're not there to defend yourself.

The five stages of any project...

1. Euphoria and Excitement

2. Disenchantment

3. Search for the Guilty

4. Punishment of the Innocent

5. Reward for the Uninvolved

...stage 2 is sometimes rendered as "fear and panic"

I didn't say it was your fault; I said I was blaming you.

I had a boss once that told us that "If you don't fail miserably once in a while, you're not stretching yourself as far as you should." Obviously, she was an atypical boss. Hope it works out OK for you.

One of my favorite bosses,(that is ,he was my favorite as long as I wasn't the one he was mad at that day)used to say"the only people that mess up are the ones who are doing something.If you don't do anything ,you can't f**k it up.

You've simply exposed an undocumented vulnerability which could save your station and others from great loss in the future. You should be receiving high praise as a fearless debugger!

Here's hoping you come through without too much blame on your shoulders

Well, knowing how Today's Corporate Environment is, just be glad you can get 99 Weeks of Unemployment.

After all, when the Company is heading for Bankruptcy, it was NEVER Management"s Fault, and the last word out of the mouths of the Jerks who ran it into the ground is "Where's My Golden Parachute Check?"
