and i did tell her that i had other things to do, that the boss left me in charge and she said that she didnt care. the boss is her son and "i am gonna make sure that things are gonna go right while Walter is gone because the people who work here are incapable of doing things right"
So...basically....she'* a mother who is looking out for her son. Bottom line... right or wrong. You'll have to go along with her on this...otherwise she'll badmouth you when he gets back.
Then you need to sit down with Walter when he comes back and tell him that you were torn between doing what he wanted...and doing what his mother wanted. Tell him you didn't know who'* instructions to follow. Ask him which instructions should have been followed. You may be surprised on what he says.
On one hand, he may be ticked that Mommy Dearest interferred...on the other hand he may be ticked that you didn't obey his orders... therefore, you need to assure him you understood his orders, tried to do them, but decided to listen to her out of respect and becuase of her insistence.
In the future, you will request to have a meeting with him and Mommy Dearest to be sure everyone knows their place and duties in his absence.
