So I have a bit of a transportation problem and I work at a startup. It was a Saturday night and my dad came to pick me up but I had my phone on silent. So he came in and had some small talk with my boss and another one of his colleagues (They are close friends).
Anyways while my boss, and I were showing my dad a demo unit, the conversation steered its way towards factory managers and their inefficacy. They were talking about how dumb they were and jokingly my dad told my boss that I told him my boss and colleague were dumb (Which I for the record never said anything remotely like that). I was shocked at that moment, and all I could do was repeatedly mutter a feeble "no". My boss asked if this was true and I said "no" but my dad said "yes".
I'm not sure what my dad was thinking, but my boss and his colleague joked it off, yet I cannot help feeling I might have damaged my good terms with my boss/colleague. Also probably sacrificed a good job. How do I fix this?
My plan is to go talk to my boss and his colleague on Monday and tell them there was an apparent misunderstanding. I would tell them I would never say such a thing and that I have the utmost respect for them.
