  • It depends on the situation. If she said to "make something up" to a customer who wanted us to do something we just couldn't, then I wouldn't mind. If she said to do something illegal, then that would be a deal breaker.

  • Depends... if he wants me to put my job on the line for him....no. But if it would better something/someone and not hurt anyone, I might. He would never ask me to though, so it wouldn't matter

  • Depends. There have been plenty of times my boss has given me the old "tell him I'm on a conference call!" when someone she doesn't want to talk to calls. I have no problem with that. But bigger things, then no I wouldn't.

  • Not in a million years. Was asked to once. Just couldn't do it.

  • Nope. That would be a signal to start a job search.
