    here is the scenario:

    immediate supervisor tells me something that shows the main supervisor lied to me... background: i have never trusted the main person...and this year everyone trashed me for being such a skeptic...everyone else likes the main guy...now i know i have been lied to.

    so i see these options:

    confront main guy which means all hell will break loose for immediate supervisor for spilling the beans

    say nothing and know i was right all along

    say nothing and think maybe this was a one time thing

    i really dont care to be lied to...i can get over most things but being lied to...but then again who doesnt lie?

    your random musings?

    Release it...let it go including what is festering inside.

    you will be better off.....

    If he does it again....then figure out your next strategy ...

    No matter what, he will still be the main boss....and no one likes their lies pointed out to them, along with him being on to your dislike of him...better to hide and watch.....till you can figure out where all the chips will fall after your episode if you confront him...

    document it, if possible and then keep it in your back pocket. might come in handy later, especially if he does it again.

    or firebomb his house
