Nepotism is never a good thing.
I’m not saying you can’t hire family members if they’re qualified for the position in question. But doing it when they have no idea what they’re doing is just plain nepotism. Not only that but firing other hardworking employees just so you can do this is heinous. And this isn’t a family business, so she has no excuse for doing this. We all know that people in the IT department always get the short end of the stick because people don’t think they’re doing much, but that’s precisely why stories like these are so enjoyable to read.
Her job would have been safe if she had been intelligent enough to recognize that her nephew was not capable of doing this job or that he would not be able to learn so quickly. But she chose to treat all of her employees as second-class citizens, and she got what she deserved. And, at the end of the day, who doesn’t enjoy getting back at their boss? I’m sure we’ve all fantasized about a scenario like this but never had the opportunity. So, for the time being, you can live vicariously through this person.
So, scroll down to read the story for yourself, and don’t forget to bring some popcorn because this ride is going to be a wild one.
It is an older story but similar things happen every day.
We see managers get drunk on their power and treat employees horribly.
He knew that he would be fired soon but he wasn’t going to make it easy on her.
So when she brought in her nephew, this was his chance.
He had a plan and he was going to see it through.
So when her nephew inevitably said that he was lacking, he was fired promptly.
But she didn’t know about the storm that was coming and it was glorious.
While I dislike going after the nephew because we don’t know his motivations, he did agree to this plan and most likely pretended to know a lot more about the position than he actually did. So, in my opinion, he is just as much a part of this as the dreadful manager. I’ve never understood why upper management is so bad. Perhaps it’s because they let their power get the best of them and treat everyone horribly. We’ve all dealt with arrogant bosses who believe they know more than you, even if you’ve been with the company for far longer.
People in the comments were just as satisfied with the turn of events.
But some people were a bit confused by the rate mentioned in the post.
And apparently, it is quite usual.
I have to agree that it was brilliant.
But we also got a bit more explanation on why he kept it all documented.
So we could understand what he actually did.
People in the IT department do deserve respect.
