Revenge is best served cold.
I think we have all heard this statement but we don’t really understand it until we have to go through this ourselves. And we only get the chance when we get to work under a boss who needs to learn a lesson. And that is exactly what happened in this scenario. I think we have all had to work under micro-managing managers who care way too much about things that don’t really matter but that is the only way they get to exert their power.
We can all relate to this. So that is why it is so satisfying for us to see managers like this get their comeuppance. This particular manager was on a power trip and they had it coming. And since they cared about records so much, that is exactly how the employee managed to ‘defeat’ them. After all, that is what they wanted so they should have seen this coming. You can read the whole story by scrolling below.
The story starts with the employee explaining about the micro-managing manager.
Even with the little information we have, we can see that she loves to exert her power however she can.
You might wanna remember the ‘it didn’t happen if it’s not in writing’ because it will come up in the future.
So it is understandable why the employee started to make records of everything.
But she clearly didn’t like this turn of events.
And she tried her best to get back the control she so desperately needed.
But the employee wasn’t going to let her have this so they were ready for this.
However, things really took a turn the next day when she straight-up lied.
The union representative was clearly having fun as they finally had evidence against her.
At the end of the day, everyone is out for themselves when it comes to any sort of job environment. And while it is well and good to care about others, you might not get the same courtesy back. So it may not seem like good advice but sometimes you have to be selfish for your own sake.
But things didn’t end there as they clearly fired her the next day so it turned out well at the end of the day.
We also get the little tidbit of information that the job environment is actually quite nice.
People in the comments were quite satisfied with how things ended up.
That is actually very good advice and applies in every situation when it comes to employment.
I need to keep this in mind for future use as well. It is always better to be safe rather than sorry later.
Having every sort of record is very important when it comes to any job, apparently.
See that’s the trick. You get paid half upfront to kill the guy. Then you show up and ingratiate yourself to him. Do stuff for him. Get paid to do stuff for him. Earn his trust. Get promoted. Outperform his expectations. Get him birthday gifts. Ask to help with the bookkeeping. Knock it out of the park. Earn your position as his trustee and one of his heirs, alongside his adult children, who have come to accept you as a family after all these years. Sit by his bedside as he fades. When he passes away surrounded by his loved ones, you slip out of the room, pull out your phone, and call your client.
“It’s done. I expect the second half of my payment by end of the week.”
The perfect crime and you’ve made hundreds of times more than the client was offering. –PangolinOne3660
