Recently I had someone pass the buck to me. It was innocent enough. A simple error on their part. An oversight you could say, but instead of taking responsibility they passed on the blame for the sake of looking good. Saying it was this other persons fault decentralized the problem and made them look like they were a hero (fixing the problem) while I look like the fool (the dunce that apparently doesn’t know better).
Why do people do this? It’s all about egos these days and appearing like you’re completely on top of everything. I’m not perfect myself, and make my fair share of mistakes, Does the buck stops here where you are?
