I have a hard time with this, because I don't like to lie. It may seem trivial, but do you have any ideas on how to tell him you can't do this?

I don't know..that's a hard one. FIrst of all, the boss shouldn't even be asking you to do this, but if you don't, what will happen??

What does your boss want you to lie about?

Simple things like 'tell him i'm at lunch' when he is standing right next to me, because he doesn't have an answer for the client yet. I don't think bosses realize that some do not like to lie.

If i asked him to not put me in that position, i don't think it would matter to him...but i am not sure.

It is down to me figuring out how to say that without being disrespectful. Just thought i would bounce it around here on aac.

Well instead of saying he's at lunch, you could just say he's not available right now- which is true- he's making himself unavailable to the client.

OMW: Don't feel stupid! That would just be an out for a little lie. If he wanted to tell you to do something that would compromise company policies, legal issues, moral issues, etc. that would be an entirely dif story. Bosses always seem to put the burden of their disappearing acts on someone else, and it is uncomfortable. SD

I used to do the same things for my boss..telling people she wasn't available, when she just didn't want to deal with them. Yes, a lot of bosses do this.. I think all..I worked for drs..it's hard to watch happen, when you know the person is desperate to talk to them..and they lie and make their nurse or Ma..say they are busy..when they are chatting on the phone with a girlfriend...but it happens all the time..in every line of work...I think I just got used to it...maybe you will, too..

He and I went to a Glow Golf party last night, in Wa. It was fun..black lights and glow in the dark golf balls. It was nice to get out of my house...I never leave anymore..we really had a good time. I love putt putt golf. Makes me feel like getting out of this town..moving..to a city again, where there are lots of thing to do. He's sleeping right now...which is good. Haven't heard from his dad since..Thurs night..I think they put him in the hole, for throwing bacteria infested trays away...I'm a bit worried about him. I don't know whether to show for visiting, ot not tonight...wish he would call...

How are you??
