So when our previous office secretary transferred in like... December, I trained to be the secretary person until they hired someone. The only reason I was volunteered to do this is because I took a secretary training class just to learn the software (for a project I was doing) so they figured that I was already half way there. Well, we did hire somebody, and it's been 8 months, and he's still yet to finish his training, meaning that I'm still the secretary and my names on all the stuff.
We have an annual inspection for our records, office organization, other stuff, etc. and we originally failed it (I wasn't there and dude was still too new) since we were in a middle of a branch-wide reorganization and junk. So we do a re-inspection in June (we both were there) and the head secretary said to write a correction letter/follow up letter and send it to her. As soon as she left I sat down at my computer and wrote up a nice long official memorandum that I was very proud of. After it was finished, I signed it and scanned it as a PDF.
Well I sent the dude the PDF, word doc, and the 2 checklists and told him to make changes/additions as he saw fit, then once he was done, if he did anything at all, then to send it to he the head secretary lady and cc me. He never did. It was due 9 Jul 10. It's 24 Aug 10. WTF?! I walked up to him or called him several times over the course of time to ask him how it was coming along, and he always said he'd take care of it. Never did. So today I get an email 3 mins before my shift is over asking where it was. This pissed me off severely, because my name is going on all the write ups and shit.
I emailed her back basically saying "I wrote the letter day of and sent it to [dudes name] so he could make corrections/additions. Sorry for the mix up, I'll attach the original files I made." And I did attach those files, with the PDF clearly showing the date (proving I didn't edit it to avoid trouble) and signature. So basically, I threw him under the bus, but I'll be damned if I get in trouble because of something someone else did or didn't do. It's bullshit.
Would you consider throwing another employee under the bus or exposing their faults "unprofessional" or wrong? I feel bad about it, but damn!
