Talking About Co-Worker With Manager


#1

Today a manager mentioned that a co-worker voided a transaction without notifying them and they were a bit confused as to why because they were missing $20. We started discussing the mistake and after a bit I said “I wonder how he figured out how to void the transaction.”

Was this detraction? I was kind of thinking he may have tried to sabotage the company when I said that. I know detraction is when you give harmful info to people who shouldn’t know, but it would seem a manager should be different/exempt.


#2

No, that’s not detraction.


#3

A superior can need to know something one ought not say to another.

That can be an objectively valid reason.


#4

NO.


#5

:rolleyes:


#6

NO. you were speaking to a manager at work, about something that happened at work, involving someone that works there.


#7

Yep. Abandon all hope.


#8

Thanks for the replies! I figured there were some exemptions. I would assume that Priests are also exempt because they have to hear confessions.


#9

You misunderstand.

It’s not an “exemption”. It’s NOT an example detraction. Neither was your last scenario.

This is why I keep telling you to get a spiritual director. You are laboring under numerous misconceptions when it comes to forming your conscience.

Why would it be?
