A new survey by Office Team reveals that 30% of managers have taken the blame in the office for something that wasn't their fault. Other findings:
- 28% of 'fall guys' have taken the fall because they didn't want others to get in trouble
- 34% of 'fall guys' have taken the fall because they felt indirectly responsible for the problem
- 12% of 'fall guys' have taken the fall because an explanation would have been more trouble than it was worth
Steve once took the fall for a guy at work. Steve was the new guy and he figured he could get away with making a mistake and they would blame it on him not working there long. He took the fall but the other guy was fired anyway!
When did you take the fall for someone?
