My immediate supervisor pulled an Easter prank that now has everyone in trouble. Our company put out Easter candy for our guests. My boss tossed some chocolate laxatives into the candy bowl. Several clients ate the chocolate laxatives and got the runs. My co-worker is being blamed for the prank. She had nothing to do with it. I'm the only one who knows what my boss did. I feel terrible that my co-worker may get fired for a prank she had nothing to do with. My immediate supervisor is a producer so he wouldn't get fired even if I busted him. My 'heart' is telling me to say something while my 'head' is telling me to stay silent. What should I do?
