    I was one of the first women in the country to have a morning drive radio show back in the late 70's. The sexual harassment was horrific and I ultimately left after four years due to the stress.
    The station brass decided to sue me for my unemployment benefits, because I had done one 30 second commercial for someone for about fifty bucks.
    Haha!! I had saved every smutty memo, from the news director and every bad poem from the married program director, all helpfully written on company letterhead!
    Needless to say we went before the arbitrator and I won.

      Better pay is always nice but I feel like a healthy work place is just as important, if not more. I mean, you knew what you were being paid when you signed the contract, however, nobody knows how's the work environment like until they're inside. Sometimes, better pay doesn't make up for the bs you have to deal with from other people, especially your co-workers and/or boss. I can tolerate a minimum wage job, now, crappy people? No thanks.

    I had been unemployed for a year due to my son having a severe brain injury in a car crash. I tried and tried and finally got hired at a nearby place in my field of interest, with a govt program (not welfare) subsidizing half my pay for the first few months. My manager used it against me frequently as a put down. Well, a job came up at the top end of what I was doing, at a national company- so basically about a 3x pay rise for me plus huge benefits. I heard through the grapevine that I should apply. Went down there on my lunch, no resume or anything. Got the job. Heard later that my manager had gone for an interview and failed. Bonus points was that later on the shop foreman said my old boss kept asking what I have said about him- nothing :)

He had 2 seizures in the ambulance. Took a few days for the doctors to figure out it was an abscess. They drained it, kept him in ICU for a few days, and he went home yesterday.

      @Dog Flamingo yeah maybe I’m just like that but I would have told him to either stop pulling me in or expect me to not do the work he sets. And it is up to him to choose which one. Not even afraid because at the end of the day he needs employees and I don’t need a bad boss so either way I win.

      Agreed!!! I hate unnecessary meetings. I have refused higher paying positions because of all the unnecessary meetings those people have to deal with. And the emails. Nothing irks me more than some douchebag sending an email to the entire corporation (we have over 100k employees) congratulating someone nobody knows about their new position that nobody knew existed and invites others to join them in the congratulations only to have several more douchebags hit “reply all” to congratulate said unknown person in said unknown position resulting in HUNDREDS of irrelevant emails others have to sort through to get to their three relevant emails. DO NOT “REPLY ALL” UNLESS IT IS RELEVANT TO EVERYONE ON THAT EMAIL LIST!!!!!She was rude and demanding and accusatory.

    Preach! I’ve worked in so many restaurants that don’t provide a staff meal. It blows my mind. I am usually in a sous chef or line cook position so I always fed anyone who was hungry. I got in trouble for it a lot but I didn’t care. Any time I got in trouble I said it was my staff meal. Which only cooks or head chefs got…. I never ate a meal because I was constantly tasting food before it went out anyway.

      @Notorious-00J That started when one/some of these "homeless' decided to sue the company for food that they claimed made them sick, screwing everyone else that sure could have used the food. There are ways around this, as long as you put it in the dumpster. To go boxes in a clean bag. Yes, they still have to go in the dumpster, but it's "clean garbage." If they get sick from eating something from the dumpster, that's on them.

    With all these, I wanted to add the story of one of my buddies and her awesome boss... Yes, they actually DO exist! In the early 90s, my friend was a struggling college student and got a job at a telesurvey place. Since her degree plan was in computer science she knew more about the systems than anyone and was quickly transferred to the I.T. department. She rose through the ranks and by the time she got her master's degree she was offered the I.T. Directors' job. However, since she was simply exceptional at what she did she was offered a job that paid almost three times what the directors' job could. Her boss strongly recommended her to take the job and even sent all of her company accolades to the new company for the interview. She not only got the job but the former telesurvey place, which no longer used cold calls, became the go to place for career advancement for students for both universities in town. Everyone won, in the end.

    My company was shit, was threatening to take away holiday time. They kept denying holiday request but made it clear if we didn't take the holiday time we would lose it and not be reimbursed for unused days... So instead of going to the manager I went straight to the computer and inputted my holiday time.. Magically the holiday they said I couldn't take took when I went straight to the source. I got the entire month of April off (with pay) and fucked off to Portugal and Amsterdam for the whole month. They figured it out in march and posted a note saying "no holiday time available at all in april" and made sure everyone knew It was because I "stole" all the time off for the month.

    Women often have a hard time separating business from relationships at work. When men jump from job to job they’re seen as “go getters” but if women take that approach their supervisor/boss debase them as “users”.

    I one time petty employee revenged and didn't even know it.
    I was in construction at the time, my co-worker (Dan) and I were fairly efficient in the Plate and Detail part of the job and he kept asking the boss, whom I had never seen or met, for a raise for almost two years. One morning we get to work and he gets a call to go to a meeting. As I am getting ready to P&D the next units this guy comes up with this kid in tow saying that the kid is to help me today. I look at him and his tool bags, which are completely empty, and ask the guy what is the kid supposed to do to which he replied "Help you, dummy." I got a little offended at that and said...."How in the f... is this kid going to help me? He has no f..... tools." And began to tell him how f.... this entire situation was with many details. I finished with a very loud "Now get the f... out of here.".
    They both left.
    A few hours later Dan comes back from the meeting and says "Did you yell at Arnie?" . I ask who that is and he replies "The guy that brought that kid to work with you was our boss, and whatever you said to him worked. He gave is both a raise.".

    This wasn't work but it did involve someone's business. A friend had a neighbour whose tree was scratching on her upstairs window and leaving "tree snot" all over the window. It was one of those little windows in the peak of the house that didn't open. She's disabled but asked her neighbour if her able bodied adolescent son could climb up there and cut the branch, the neighbour said 'no', she can't touch the tree because, her (my friend's) fence was over on their property line to begin with so the WHOLE TREE was on their property. It was causing such a mess on her window, she finally got a mediator. They got a surveyor and it turned out the neighbour's garage pad was 1' onto my friend's property. Not just the garage pad but a brand new photo studio he'd just had built on it. He had to take down the building, re-pour the garage pad (all of this wouldn't have had to be done but for HIM) and move everything 1' over. He was complaining to my friend...who just said to him "I asked you to cut ONE branch."

    I asked a girl who was in my rather large software development team of around 60 people what her work was (she was supposed to be a developer ) . I had assumed her to be a tester because I had never seen her interact much with the developers and she never seemed to be around whenever development work was in a critical phase . Now this girl complained to my boss (who was also my friend ) that I had insulted her by asking her job description. I was completely surprised because that was an innocuous question and I felt both the girl and boss were overreacting. Anyway I got a better opportunity a few months later and quit . My former boss (now only a friend ) called me up a year later and wanted to meet . When we were catching up i asked him about the girl . he told me the girl had complained to the HR that my friend was harassing her and in the mess that followed , the girl quit her job and my friend's reputation was shot . I didn't say anything but thought to myself "you don't have to do anything for revenge the universe does it for you" .

    Speaking of lunch at work... when I was a supervisor I kept a cabinet full of lunch items like soup and ravioli and told everyone they could dip in anytime and grab what they wanted. And on Saturdays, our craziest busy day, I started setting up a lunch buffet so we could eat on the run. People are nicer when they arren't hungry and we had a stressful job that we worked 4/10s, Wed-Sat, so Saturdays were exhausting. We rocked that day though, with big smiles.

    I've been working for the same small factory for a few years. Most of the plant workers are good people. Management, however, is inept at best and they regularly talk about the workers like they are sub-human. I recently started a new position there and moved from the floor to a desk job working beside the PM. I know how things work here, so when I asked about the position's pay, I wasn't surprised to hear some lame excuse followed by, "I'll see what I can do." Since I have a long work history in jobs requiring much higher level skillets, I don't believe they realize they need me much more than I need them. So, imagine the chop-licking opportunity that fell into my lap when a new HR assistant sent out a spreadsheet requesting missing employee information for payroll, but included ALL plant employees and their current pay rates. There are some top, reliable performers that are making the same or even less than new and/or unreliable ones. This place is in desperate need of new management. I'll see what I can do.

      @Carpathianpixie195 Good question. She thought the company needed her she could do anything. I heard she would also show up for work at 3pm then demand the office staff stay to help her because she was a lazy fuck that slept most of the day. Her bosses only kept her around because she was good at her job. Problem was she was a thief. When I quit she use my info to get a credit card that she maxed out. It was a big mess but I got my revenge by having her license to be a CPA revoked permanently.

    I like the alarm sticker on the purse idea!
    The reason is due to how I would alert store security to actual shoplifters trying to leave the corporate grocery store where I was employed as a night cleaner.
    I always had two large dry dust mops on the floors. One I would stash next to the alarm sensors with an alarm strip stuck on it, between the strands, while actively cleaning the floors with the other one. Once I spot someone doing the dirty deed? I would stay as close as I could to keep an eye out/follow waiting for the moment the shoplifter goes towards the doors to leave. I would walk faster than their pace to get to my second dry dust mop, grab it and walk past the alarm sensors towards the exit door setting off the alarm. Working as just a night cleaner, I had no legal right to stop anyone, or even question them! Caught a heck of a lot of shoplifters that way!

    I worked for a DIY company that adopted the Home Depot stylie of business. They were making us Americans. During a morning meeting on the shop floor, our area manager was asked about how little we were paid. he said, "When you get monkeys, you pay peanuts". Several employees stood up one by one and said things like, "I'm a vet, but I can't get a license to practice in Britain", "I'm a lawyer who can't get a job because I'm overqualified for most of the legal companies in Aberdeen" I stood up and reminded him of the time he tried to chew me out because the store manager and line manager never spoke up to say the line manager had fucked up the holiday rota because he thought I was away while he went on holiday - my holiday had been cleared eight months previously. I then told him I was gay after he had said during a meeting, "Oh god don't tell me we have any of those.!", my boss and line manager still never said they knew that there were four gay members of staff in including me, cnuts...he crumbled and walk away LOL

    It’s so dumb that businesses expect loyalty but refuse to give it or deserve it. “How dare you try to get another job when I refuse to give you a raise!” “I treat you like shit and this is how you repay me?”

    I worked for a small electric motor repair shop, and they kept a fridge in the break room that was stocked with drinks and snacks. They also bought us all lunch a couple times a month, a big and delicious cake for everyone's birthday, and if a job was a rush job, went late after normal hours or was just generally hard/crappy, the boss would buy all the techs a beer when they were done. It was a hard job, even for us on the customer service side, so they did things like that to let us know they appreciated us. Genuinely good people.

      @Cynthia Naber How are you supposed to describe a meal if you don’t know what it tastes like? My last job working for someone else before setting up my own business was with the guy who managed the first restaurant I worked at. He had been my mentor throughout my career and had bought his own restaurant. Hie whole family lived upstairs and would come down and eat with the staff of which there were about ten in total. It was the best team building exercise I've known (also learnt a bit of Italian).

    I once taught in a high school with awful students ( all male school) that also had an awful director, who treated me badly (to say the least). The guy was such a bully. And students could do whatever, they were always right. One day some students tried to set trash on fire but he defended them. Another time I told him about an incident and he replied “ boys will be boys, I was myself very agitated in school, I get them”. What? Anyway. Long story short, I almost burnt out and had to stay off work for about a month. When I came back, they had given my position to the substitute who had filled in for me. Technically not legal, but that director obviously knew people in high places. The awful/ makes no sense schedule I had and that couldn’t be changed had miraculously been modified for said sub as well. Things I had complained about but that were not considered important when I had spoken about them in the past had been solved. Etc. Every single person working there absolutely hated him but would just shut up. I was so mad about the whole situation that I kept the books, pens and any paper supplies I had been given on arrival and was supposed to use in school only. That high school also happened to have a weird key system - we had to go and pick our classroom keys every morning from a special cabinet and put it back when done in the afternoon. And since we’re in France, we don’t necessarily teach in the same room all day, so we often had to come and go and wait for other teachers a lot to get the key we needed. Which is annoying enough. But the day I was made redundant, one of the keys mysteriously disappeared... I laughed all the way back home, and was incredibly happy to put that key in a garbage can once home. Small thing, but made me incredibly happy to imagine the confusion and chaos that little key caused. 😉

    I set off the alarm once leaving Hobby Lobby. It is incredibly embarrassing when that happens. I went in for specific items so I only had 3-4 things & I know I didnt steal anything. So I have to go back to the register, then walk through without my purchases & of course it went off again. I offered my purse for them to look & just then I thought to check my shoes. Sure enough, I stepped on a security thing, sticky side up, somewhere in the store & there it was on my shoe. I peeled it off & walked through with no issues & everyone laughed but I was mortified that those people who was around & left or came in during the event thought I was a shoplifter.

      @Kayenne54 I dont know & never really paid any attention to it. I have had electric shocks though as a kid, I recall several times getting a good shock from putting something metal in a socket, lol. I have gotten a real good shock too on christmas lights with a broken wire that wasnt noticed. I recall once it was super painful, like I could feel the waves of pulsating electric. I now do not hold the strand when I plug them in to check or run my hand along the wire to check bulbs.

      @Cheryl_Loves_Purple P.S. You may also be an energy healer yourself. It's often genetic, but can be triggered by getting electric shocks too, as far as I can figure out.

      @Cheryl_Loves_Purple So do I! I can't wear watches (either old type or digital) because they simply stop. I turn 18k rings into mangled messes. The gold goes really soft and next thing I know the ring is completely warped on my finger. It's okay with 9k gold. The other thing is street lights. If I regularly go a certain way, any dodgy street light (if it's still on but very flickery) will turn off, if it's already off it will turn on as I near it or go past. Only thing I can find out about this weird "power" of mine is that it may be because I've had a few electric shocks over my lifetime. It's changed my electrical output/system. The other thing I've noted, personally, is that during solar storms I'll zap everyone a lot, and once caused a blackout at a lecture by turning off the light so we could see a video. Static arced between my finger and light switch, and the whole place went dark. I wasn't popular, as if I'd done it on purpose. I've also worked as a "hands on" healer, which means I am attuned to earth's electro-magnetic system, and can "re-tune" other people to match, facilitating healing (I've studied this a lot; it's called "The Christmas Tree effect" because brainwaves of patient begin to match brainwaves of healer, so readouts look like a Christmas tree visually speaking). It may be that this is a natural trait of mine, as my grandmother couldn't wear watches either and was a great healer herself. Your dad may have wonderful healing abilities and just doesn't know it. 🙂

      @Kayenne54 Lol. It happens to him all the time. He has the same issue with going through a metal detector. He has had practically everything off & still set the thing off before. Something in his chemical makeup I guess. I have issues with static. I get shocked ALL the time, no matter the weather, what I am wearing or any circumstances & I shock people & my dogs. It gets painful at times & visible with the zaps being seen.

    I was interviewed by HR to be fired for false accusations after I put in my notice for not getting a raise or promotion duee "underperforming service numbers" yet I was number 37 in services out of 7,000 employees. I was playing it cool and the HR guy went off about how my password was xFuck0d19x (started with 10 but my password was suddenly reset constantly). Then I proceeded to work four hours and sold $3700 in computer services that only I could manually do, then I was terminated with my number deactivated instantly. After signing papers and escorted to the door, the manager asked how do the jobs I took in and I just laughed walking away. Turns out they had to refund every job but because my employee number was deactivated, I collected an extra $555 in commission on work I never did.

    Here's a petty revenge story. When I was 18, fresh out of college I worked as a receptionist in a family run plumbing and electrics company. They treated me like poo, because I was young they thought they could get away with it. After about a year they started firing a few key members of staff, including the accountant, it was all a bit suspicious. At that time I got tonsillitis and was on antibiotics and they insist on a doctor's note. They got one. I was off for about a week because I couldn't even swallow, I was in so much pain. While I was off, I got a letter in the mail, from my employer, firing me. This is actually not legal in UK especially after a doctor's note. I was upset and angry. Now, to the fun bit. Did I mention my Dad worked for the local city council who was responsible for handing out contracts for plumbing and electrical works? The company I worked for used to get a lot of contracts from the council (My Dad) but mysteriously didn't get even one after I received my letter, weird that ;) Company went bust less than a year later. Sweet petty revenge, My Dad is awesome

    I was a new hire at a bank that had just bought out another. Well my starting salary was more than what people had been there for several years were making. One of the previous bank hires asked me what I was making. So I told. That’s when I found out all new hires were making the same as each other but more than those who had been with the swallowed up bank! Then word started spreading through all the old hires and it became toxic for a while. There was so much petty and passive aggressive behavior and outright rudeness towards us new hires by the old hires that a few of them got fired. I felt bad about that. One girl even quit and reinterviewed for the same job. She didn’t get it for how she behaved before she quit.

      i worked for our local garbage company. upon hiring, we were told it was under new management. ok, cool. all was well, until one new hire let it slip to his best friend, who was an older employee (had been there long before new management) that is was a great job for x amount of dollars. she stopped and asked what? the old employees were making less than new hires, and same thing happened. the old pay employees began abusing the new hires. i stood up in a meeting and pointed out who was doing it and said in front of management, that it is NOT our fault or decision regarding pay and if the harrassment coniues from said employees the company was going to have alot of lawsuits headed their way. either raise the pay of older hires to the rate new hires got, or do something about the harrassment being delivered unto us from the old hires because the entire situation was unacceptable and no amount of pay was worth being mean girled by an entire staff floor simply because you choose to get a job. the people who were leading the mean girl bullshit were fired or quit shortly after and the ones who stayed, got a raise within a couple months and all shut up.

    I was working at a nursing home and I started out working graveyard. (8 years experience). That night I came in I asked the nurse for the end section cause the a lady who has been there for years was pissed off at me the few nights before cause i had "Her" section. When you're new there thats the section you get it happens to everyone. So I was restocking briefs and wipes in all the rooms. In the middle of me doing this I was making sure I got everything in the rooms on the clip board and she came up to me and said I need this and that and I ask her to hang on a sec so I could finish the paperwork. And she literally yelled and me and called me a B#%@! Screaming. I looked at her and said you're going to get fired. So I wrote it all down on printer paper and the nurse asked me what I was doing and she took her pen and signed the paper too along with all the other cnas there 🤣 even the residents that she woke up wanted to sign the paper too. And they said about time we get to get her A#@ in trouble. And the next day at work she wasn't there. We worked one cna short but it was totally worth it! I knew she was going to be pissed but I didn't know that she would freak out like that glad she did just made my plan even better! Guess they had been trying to fire her for a long time. It was a good night we even got pizza!

    Other than just blowing off essential tasks in my last two weeks, the pettiest thing I did was whistleblow on the fact that I was having to coordinate security system repairs at least weekly, sometimes more often. Mind you, this was a MAJOR, global shipping company that had a lot of valuable shit moving through it, and they had these hardcore magnetic locks on the employee entrances (these were the parts that kept getting mysteriously broken). An investigation was launched, and sure enough, they found some ungodly amount of stuff had been pilfered over the course of a year, like at least $1 million worth. I was hoping my asshole regional manager would get fired, but he's still there, at a higher position. 😒

    I almost walked out of my job this week because I found out that the new girl in my department is making the same as me. I have been there for a year and she has been there for a couple months and is not a good worker. The store manager thinks she is bad and talks crap about her too. I was told she gets paid the same as me because she does the heavy lifting in our department. I am disabled and cannot do all of the lifting. Another girl who has been there 5 years just got a pay raise to make the same as me. The only reason I stayed was because the main manager told me that we will probably get a 2% raise in a couple months and my mom is my department manager. From now on I am doing what my job requires and not one thing more. I am also making things to sell on etsy so if that's successful I will put in my notice. Wish me luck! Have a great day!

    DM kept reporting her failings as my fault to the AM. Finally she came with the AM to our store and she started dressing me down. My GM tried to throw me under the bus but Mama ain’t a dummy. I printed out every email the DM had sent us showing she never sent us the info to do whatever the fuck we weren’t doing correctly and my emails asking her what we needed to know from the DM meetings or group meetings they didn’t bring us to because we’d have had to have a hotel room.
    Handed those printouts to the AM and turned the screen to her so she could see I hadn’t changed anything. Not only did I not get fired, I didn’t even get a reprimand and the AM sent me all the info that was missing and kept in touch with me because the GM never checked email, which you could clearly see was all unopened in her account.
    From there, my GM got disciplined and the DM got switched from DM to a single store GM.
    Best part was both getting a dressing down in front of me for trying to throw me under the bus when I had great reviews from the customers at all 3 stores I managed.

I used to stop by the store on my way home, get the parts at a discount so they workers would have it the next day. New boss was a total A-hole and would not let me do this and threatened that if I did, he would make me take vacation time to do it. This store had a set price for shipping and I had 2 orders to place with them and instead of combining the orders, I placed them separately with 2 different shipping prices. What would have cost less than $4 cost them over $15! and they had to wait for the parts to come in.

They sent the most vile human being to take my place and my entire staff quit. When I came back I was told I had to work all the hours the store was open til they hired a staff without my input! I said “nope, pick up the keys at the mall security office,” locked up and quit. They offered me a raise to come back but I wouldn’t take it. I loved working there til they changed the DM.

    The last place I worked for was great to their employees. On weekends when we were completely full for Thursday,Friday,Saturday, they bought pizza for all employees on Sunday. That usually happened about every 6 weeks from opening in March until closing in November. On the last day of closing when everybody was through closing their section down they took us to a local sit down restaurant for a late lunch. On occasions when an employee needed a place to stay for some reason they gave them a room at no charge. They also would give rooms to churches free of charge when they called about someone in need.

      I'm not sure why giving two weeks' notice is still expected when employers routinely fire employees without cause and without notice AND without severance pay. It's a two way street, we don't owe anyone two weeks' notice anymore, IMO. My state (Virginia) is considered a "right to work" state, which sounds great but is really only beneficial for employers, because it means they can fire you for any reason (or no reason) without warning, so long as it's not for discriminatory reasons, but that's hard to prove. I'd only give two weeks' notice now if I really liked the person I was working under AND thought I could trust them to not accept my resignation early and screw me out of two weeks' pay.

    Oh my goodness! As a toddler my son loved wearing these osh kosh bibbers. He wore them everywhere. He also had a bad habit of picking up bits of plastic out of the store. Nothing valuable just like hanger bits.
    I had been waiting on my mother at the front of the store in the mall when an older snooty woman was complaining about how long it took to get her 8 bags of crap she was buying paid for etc... then as she went out the door the alarm went off. They took forever looking through her bags.
    When she went to go out again my son had gone in the store with me behind to find gamma lol who was stuck behind this grumpy lady, once again the alarm went off this time they called security to ask to go through her purse. She was livid. She tried to go through the doors huffing about never going back only to have my son follow her with myself and my mom. Honk honk honk the alarm goes off one more time. By this time since they had no clue what was setting it off and they found no stolen merchandise they let her go. Huffing and puffing.
    My mom and I went and we ate at the food court and fed the boy. We decided one last store before going home.
    The minute we passed the door honk honk honk. The alarm went off when we went in. Lol. All of a sudden it hit myself and my mother. We waved the guy over quick and had him wave the wand over my son. Lol sure enough that stinker had a tag in his pocket.
    We laughed so hard and made him take the sticky out and the nice lady deactivated it and let him have it back. We also stopped on our way back at the other store to apologize about how nasty that woman was to them. And it was due to a little pooper who picked up a bit of plastic off the floor. At least they now knew what it was and actually saw the humor in the situation lol. They went and gave my son a balloon and told us to enjoy the day.
    Those security tags can be a pain.
    I picked one up in my shoe a few years later. The lady found it with the wand right away tho and it took a lot to get it off my darn shoe lol.

    i want to share the story of that time i was petty towards my ex boss. my story would be really long, so i better make it short and sweet. i worked as a gardener at a cemetery and after i got out of my employment (it was taken to court, since he was constantly harassing my while i was recovering from a mental breakdown), my ex boss demanded that i give him my workwear back (he paid for it, so it's fair and it was the cheapest trash he could get anyway). so i send him a package with the dirty, uncleaned pants and shoes. i also removed the laces from the shoes, since they ripped and i replaced them, so they were mine. that was my final middle finger to him. (if i butchered the english language, i'm sorry, it's not my native one)

    I worked for a very angry man once. One day he told me "his dog could do my job!" Enough. I spent a week typing up exactly how to do my job. On Friday, I put a sticky note on top of the 4" tall pile of paper, wishing his dog good luck in her new position, and never went back. I had a new job 2 days later.

    My petty revenge story: I worked in a department store where we had 2 refrigerators to store lunches and drinks. Suddenly my sodas came up missing. I couldn’t really figure out who until I had a “brilliant” thought. I placed a white dot on the bottom of the can that said “ T’s stolen soda” Culprit revealed on the second day…

    I don't know if this was petty so much as just the right thing to do: I had a job as a secretary for a woman who was truly terrible. It was just clout for her because I did, pretty much, nothing all day. Time dragged. She didn't get that many calls, and what calls she DID get, she would never have me answer them. I finally had enough and gave my '2 weeks' then left after the first. Went to HR and told them they needed to cancel that position and use the $ elsewhere.

    Our ex assistant manager, who quit one day on the spot after staff wouldn't cover the shift he wanted to leave early during, left bad reviews of our workplace. It was signed as a former assistant manger. HR found out and the company created a legal battle with him as he had been changing records and all kinda dodgy stuff which came out the woodwork after he left.
    Everything has snowballed since then and the store has been hanging by threads but is looking up now. It's been difficult to get through but we're all trying our best to keep things going. Throwing staff under a bus that they're driving ain't the way to go.

    Here's a petty revenge story for you! I used to get my hair done by a girl who I ended up befriending and we were super close friends. After some time and life changes I couldn't get my hair done the same way anymore but we were still really close friends. One day she told me she had been sacked from that salon for unfair reasons. One day when I knew the owner would be in to hear about it I called and booked in for full extensions, foils, cut etc... a full day job pretty much, and then said I only wanted to have it done by my friend. When they told me she no longer worked there I raved about how good she was and said I wouldn't be having the very expensive job done afterall. I don't know how much the boss cared but it felt good to stand up for my friend!

    I have two days left of my toxic job. It was really hard to leave because I loved the work but our management was the worst and left the floor staff in dangerous situations with no backup or debriefing. When I told her, you would have thought I was divorcing her and taking the kids and dog. Maybe listen when your employees tell you for months what is wrong and you wouldn't have a fourth of the staff leaving within a month.

    it wasn't really petty, but i feel bad about it even though it was the right thing to do. I got my manager fired for hiding insurance claim appeals in her desk, and then used that to negotiate a promotion for myself to the lead of the department.

    Aww, sweet petty revenge. I wish I could have been so petty at my previous job! We had a snack thief who would only eat part of one brownie (with icing) and put it back in the original package with all the uneaten brownies. It upset me so much, I was tempted to tamper with every lunch in that break room!
    Also, I just got my petty mug, so I'm very happy!

    5:30 The start up I work for always has coffee, milk and oat milk, beer (for after work obviously) and club-mate. After being in home office for a few month our CPO payed our lunch first day back in office. I love the company for that! The store I worked at before (around 30 employees) barely could bring themselves to buy water for us during summer and the water from the faucet was nasty, because old pipes...

    I worked for several businesses that talked about "We're a family" and "You are important to the success of this company". But, after a while I realized that I was just a replaceable gear in the machine. When I gave my notice at one job, the owner actually said,, "No big deal. Accountants are a dime a dozen."
    Didn't make me feel bad at all when it took him three months to replace me, paying a higher salary to the new guy. The new guy? Somebody I knew from school. I gave him info to help him negotiate the terms of his contract and he kept me up to date on the office gossip.

    I felt the one with the alarm sticker. When I first discovered I was pregnant with my oldest, I had placed the HPT back in it’s foil wrapper, to have to show my husband, my mother, the doctor, etc. I hadn’t realized that the foil wrapper had an alarm sticker inside it. I set alarms off everywhere I went!

    "What is the pettiest thing you ever done at work?.." - asked Charlotte. Ma'am, where do I even start :))))) I electrocuted my ex boss for sexual harassment. Since I was a labor law expert, another ex boss that was berating bleeding secretary who injured herself at work, was told that I will help the secretary file massive work-related injury and emotional distress lawsuit against the company. I brought a chamber pot and put it on the desk of yet another ex boss who said we will not be having bathroom breaks.

    The lunch thief story was hilarious and when Charlotte mentioned the idea of more companies providing lunch for their employees it made me think of my own company. Our office is undergoing some renovations that haven't been completed yet. The major problem is that the staff lounge isn't finished and we have no place to store much less eat or even make coffee. So every day we have food and coffee brought in and the firm has eaten the cost for every single meal. They are so awesome. I really love working for this firm. When I was hired for this position the CEO asked if I could promise to work for him for the next thirty years he would be happy. I laughed and told him I could promise the next few but I have no idea what the future would hold so no promises. If things in the firm stay the way they are now I could see myself staying there until retirement but who knows.

    I once worked at a halfway house for women and children. Most of the staff from the director down to the aides were the lowest forms of life imaginable. When businesses in the community donated goods like clothes, cosmetics, or toys, the director would take staff to the donation room and tell them to take whatever they wanted before giving it to the intended recipients.
    Staff also regularly stole each other's lunches from the fridge. I resigned from that toxic environment ASAP. After I left, they told me to come in for free to complete work that wasn't even mine.
    I went in a couple times until I received my final paycheck. The director kept calling me to return to do free work, but had nothing left to threaten me with.

    The first year I worked as a department manager for an automotive related company, my boss diverted 1/5th of my pay to a fake account he'd set up for himself. I couldn't afford to heat my house for 3 weeks in the winter, with 2 kids, and the boss knew that. We finally figured out what he'd been doing, but he didn't get in trouble. Instead, corporate just told him to pay it back. He did, but had the office people pay it to me like I made thousands every month, which made me have to pay half of it out in taxes. I got a new job and quit that place. They escorted me out to my car, cussing me out the whole time. Apparently, they forgot that they were such cheapskates, they had refused to provide me with a cell phone (a necessity for the job), forcing me to use and pay for my own phone to conduct their business. I took 90% of their customers with me because all of their info was in my personal "work" phone and I was their only contact person. That was 2010. They still haven't recovered.

    As much as my current job has been cutting my hours, one thing I love about working there is the management buys food and snacks all the time for us and not just fruit snacks, like freeze pops, cake, fresh cookies- on easter, managers mom brought two whole crock pots full of food she baked just for us- slow cooked mac and cheese and some beef thing plus hand made chocolate bunny pops. If i leave this place over the cut hours... ill miss the food for sure.

    Oddly, at one company I worked for, the HR lady generally hired women just out of high school with no job experience and no plans for college as receptionists. HR was a straight woman, so it wasn't like some pervert was hiring vulnerable young girls. In any case, they usually lasted around a year, leaving for better paying jobs (often with either suppliers or customers). The HR woman was really good at training, and didn't seem to mind cycling through one a year. I know she was hired by the company when she was just out of high school and without experience, and worked her way up, so I suspect she had a soft spot for high school graduates entering the real world.
    Nobody ever took it personally that they were taking the next step in the careers. Maybe it was a sign of success that they had developed enough skills over their year they could work somewhere with better pay and more responsibility. Of course, the one exception was and older woman who was promoted to personal assistant of the CEO. She was fired when it came out her husband took a job with our top competitor. Within an hour of him finding out, she was out the door.

    Never make friends with co workers and especially your boss. There are some instances where it can be helpful and beneficial to be friendly with them (always be friendly and kind but remember they aren’t your friends. Your well-being is not their concern.)
    My dad told me this when I first started working as a teen. I didn’t listen cuz I’m a people pleaser, hate conflicts, non confrontational, never wanted to seem rude, didn’t want anyone to hate me, thought my bosses or co workers were different and really wanted to be friends (hit to your mental health when you realize they don’t care about you), etc…
    I finally learned this lesson…I hope. I still have a little hope that I’m gonna get a boss that actually does care and a fear that when I do, it’ll be when I stop trying and miss a great opportunity for a friend or career advancement.

    Some years ago we had a business partner who was robbing us every time so my bf who was computer savvy rigged his account to be porn-bombed every time he used it. We laughed when he complained that he couldn't understand why his computer was doing this. Another time I was moving house and was asked by the removers to reserve the sidewalk parking so we put up two chairs and tape late at night and informed the neighbours. One neighbor took it all down and said that 'foreigners' like me living in 'his' country didn't have the right to do what I did as he 'paid' taxes and I didn't. I had been living in France then for over 30 years and was paying plenty taxes. I found his car next day and superglued his wipers to the glass and also filled his keyholes with glue. Another night I was walking my dogs when a car ran us over pushing me against the barrier with my dogs under the car. I had to scream for them to stop and back off, they laughed. We were ok but shocked. I later found the car when walking home and engraved the word C,NT on the hood of his car.
