You did the right thing. She was in the wrong, don't worry your pretty little head like that. You did what anyone would've done and your boss will recognize you were just doing your job and following the rules. Isn't that the purpose?
except my boss literally will not care about my side of the story. i’ve actually been there longer than she has (i trained under a different manager), so I think and do things differently than she does, and she hates me for it. She never listens to anything I say. I know that sounds weird, but it’s how it is.
(yes, I have been looking for another job, but it’s really really not that easy in a small town).
