I am an executive assistant to a VP and also report to 3 of his managers. One of his managers is constantly forgetting his deadlines even when I remind him of things or telling me one thing, realizing his mistake, and then throwing me under the bus on conference calls i.e. "Oh, sorry you don't have that report, I told her to do this" etc. It has happened on several ocassions and I haven't said anything because I don't want to look like a whiner but my boss overhears him saying these things and I don't want it to impact a performance review, promotion consideration, transfer etc. I'm not a slacker and that's how he makes me look to others when it's really him that's slacking! I can never directly address this with the manager because he never directly addresses it with me - because he knows I did nothing wrong - I just constantly overhear him. It seems awkward and childish for me to storm to his office and correct him. I just don't want my boss thinking I'm a poor performer. How would you handle this?
