Have you ever knowingly, let someone take the blame for your wrong doing to avoid the repercussions in your adult life?
I wrote a negative review about my boss. He thought another manager wrote it and put him through the ringer.
Yea I don't that kind bad karma following me.
No. I'd step up.
Nope, my conscious would never let me.
The guilt would get to me. I've had it the other way around, though.
