Is there anyone who uses voice recorders at work ?

There is this lady deputy manager and boss at my work.

The bit** deputy manager always gaslights me, asks me why I have not done a task that she neither informed me nor instructed me about. Basically treating me like an idiot.

Just FYI, the deputy manager graduated from a not-so prestigious college, so she has some inferiority complex towards newcomers that either graduated from in-Seoul-Universities or have good qualifications.

No matter how I think about it, I was never given instructions about the task, even written instructions.

She continues to shift the blame on me and treats me like a fool. So, do you think it would be okay, if I took some voice recordings?

Since there is nothing I can do to stop that b** from speaking to me carelessly and gaslighting me, how about using a voice recorder ?

Is there someone who has done something like this ?

                                                  Request that the task instructions be provided per email. Once you are thrown a work, handle it well and send it per mail to that person. Just to make sure.
