Tire Tracks

If you were in a situation, either personal or at the office, where one person was trying to throw another person under the bus (to make themselves look good) and you know the truth about said situation, would you speak up or stay silent?

  1. I would stay silent. I’ve seen time and time again where someone does a good deed giving a heads up regarding something shady, then all of a sudden, the good samaritan ends thrown under that semi truck.

    In the end, the dirt is never really confronted, but how the message got out is. If you just have to say something, anonymous would be the way to go.

  2. I would speak up. It’s not in my nature to stand by and watch wrong being done. An injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. A bit of a stretch but you get the drift. I don’t want to be known as the person who knew and stood by and allowed it to happen.

  3. Yes I would say something, just as I would hope someone would speak up on my behalf if there was an untruth about me.

  4. Speak up *deep sigh*

  5. Personally, I’d probably say something. Office politics are crazy so it’s hard for me to say what if anything I’d say.

  6. It really depends on the scenario. How the other person was thrown under the bus, what my position is and who the other players are. I’d likely say something but how and when will depend on the scenario. As someone else said office politics can be a dirty game. You gotta navigate it a certain way lest you find yourself out in the cold.

  7. if it were in my power to do something that would help, then yes I’d do it.
    it all depends on who you speak up to and how they perceive and receive your information. office politics is a dirty game and again depending on who you speak up to it can further complicate things.
    i’d pray for wisdom to know how to act in the situation and what to say to whom.
