Help You With Your Bad Boss

The Revenge Guy

Need a little help getting even with a bad boss that keeps harassing you at work?

Most of the time you need to get legal help but any advice here is good advice!

Hello Mr. Revenge Guy,
I was working in this job with one of the big-4 accounting firms which I quit over 6 months ago. However, the hatred for my former boss still courses through my veins, and I just know I need revenge
to feel better.

The story is this: I started working there last year under the supervision of this guy who makes a big point of being religious. The job is not the usual accounting stuff but writing consulting reports which require a lot of specialization, extreme competence in writing, and long years of education to perform. Needless to say, this asshole has none of these, nor the intelligence to fake it. What he does have, however, is authority which he likes to abuse. . . often.

A few weeks after I started working there I had to go to Europe with him. OK. So we go, and part of the trip was to take the TGV (the 300mile/hr train). Anyway, we get back to the home country, and I find they docked my pay for the trip. WTF! So I ask him about it, and he says I had to submit the ticket to accounting. "But YOU had the tickets" I tell him. He basically tells me to f-ck off. When I refuse to let it go (it’s like 150$) he sends me on this wild goose chase of getting signatures from guy A and guy B etc etc. Finally, I do manage to locate my ticket– he submitted it as HIS expense.

A few weeks later my wife was really sick. I had to have family come from all over to help, but there’s a limit to what you can ask, and when at 6:30pm I would ask to leave (I would be in the office since 8:30am), he would refuse–"work it out" he said.

Then the work load got really hard– he would keep us in the office for days and nights, for nothing– we’re not blue collar workers, you can’t write reports at 2 am, it just doesn’t happen. As it happens, he didn’t know enough to read the stuff, so the only indicator he had of productivity was the hours.

There are also the times he called me a liar, the time he yelled at me until I told him my email password (illegal, by the way), the way he would kiss up to me when he realized he can’t do a task without me– only to become a total ass the next minute.

Also the pettiness, the sheer stupidity of the guy. . . enough to make you sick. . . especially when you realize the guy’s only talent is kissing the ass of HIS boss.

Needless to say, my marriage suffered for it, and I finally quit. The last day, he insisted on searching my computer for "files I stole".
I want revenge. Hard, painful revenge.
Pleez help.
Out For Blood.

Revenge JokerHi OFB,
Revenge on the “world’s worst boss” usually culminates in the person being publicly castigated on the job.

Had you still worked there I would have suggested documenting the things you do and then reporting your boss to his boss for an explanation of these workplace bully tactics.

But since you no longer worth there this isn’t going to happen and/or won’t carry much weight form a disgruntled ex-employee.

What I do suggest is take the time to:
1) Talk to a lawyer that specializes in workplace ethics (there could be a lawsuit and some cash in there for you!), and
2) I’d start sending small gifts to the office for this horrible man. Pictures of naked men, cakes with porn on the icing, flowers seemingly from other men. And for the heck of it, flowers or something with his bosses name on it. Let the real fun begin!

As a basic rule of life there will always be bad bosses. And there are a number of websites that help to deal with this issue in a way that we call all manage to cope:

http://monster.typepad.com/monsterblog/2007/08/how-bad-is-your.html

The most important thing is to remember that you left on your own, that your value as an employee and a person should not have to be compromised by the idiots that sometimes are in charge.

Hello Mr. Revenge Guy,

I’m not quite sure how to start this because I have so much to say and don’t know how to say it. I don’t know what else to do about my predicament and its starting to take a toll on me. I could really use some advice before I do something stupid, like quit my job for one. I work at a restaurant and been there for 5 years.

To make a long story short the manager has a problem with me (as an employee). I’m not sure why either because I do a great job and what is asked of me and then some. I’m just sick of the way he treats me in front of customers, trash talks me to employees and how he respects (or the lack there of) me differently. (He has his favorites and you can see it.) I try to stick up for myself (because that’s me, I don’t take crap) and to him its giving him attitude. He just straight up sucks as a manager and is all about pinching the penny. Although whenever he feels it convenient to joke around, he will "brush" past and touch my breast or tell me how much he wants to bang one of the other employees.

I want to tell the owner what all he does as his manager, but then it will make me look like a tattletail. How do I go about getting back at him and still keep my job and the respect from the owner. I want him to have a taste of his own medicine and change his ways or the owner wises up and fires his ass.
Thank You,
Girl who has had her last straw

Revenge JokerHi Girl,
There is a legal thing called "Sexual Harassment" and that is what is happening here. Start a journal and write down every incident, every rude remark, every touch.

Include dates, times, people working, witnesses, everything. Use a hidden micro-recorder to record him talking to you. Then go to the owner and see a lawyer. Don’t let this creep keep using you for his amusement!

Best wishes,
The Revenge Guy


Dear Revenge Guy,
I need your help.

Myself and 4 other co-workers were laid off from work about a month ago. What happened was our new boss was sleeping with a colleague (both are married with kids) and he was staying late drinking at night with his "favorites" at the company.

This is a hospitality type facility so he was drinking up the companies profits for free of course. He is also the most sarcastic person. For instance, you ask him a question he gives you a smart ass answer. He has ZERO management skills.

So… after 10 employees write letters to the owner of the company complaining about this "man" our corporate human resources person came in to interview everyone. We thought this was a good thing and something would be done.

Well… fast forward to a month after that we are all laid off from the company. Our letters stated "lack of work". If you have no moral standards and are "buddies" with this idiot your going to move up fast within this company.

For instance, he hired this guy who has no hospitality experience to be the restaurant manager. Now they’re best buddies and this guy has been promoted to the food and beverage director. The 5 of us who were laid off have over 50 years of hospitality experience between us… and this dumb a** gets to stay and gets promoted.

Please help revenge guy…. do I contact this dude’s wife about the affair he had? He used to text message the girl he was having an affair with ALL the time… explicit text messages. Is there anything I can do with that. I just can’t wait for Karma to get him…I want him to go down NOW! Thanks for your help and I love the website!!

Hi Pissed,
I wouldn’t make the call… not straight like that.
I’d use a phone service to phone the wife and ask her if she received the flowers that her husband had purchased and was delivered to her (actually the other woman’s) address.

A call from his cell phone service saying he is over his text message limit, this is a courtesy call, did he want to
look at other plans that could save him money?

Other calls like that will raise the wife’s suspicions… help her to figure out that he’s cheating without saying it out loud.
Much more fun…. And a bigger fall for that ass of a boss.

I’m sure the ten of you can brain storm even more ideas of calls to make.

And talk to an employment lawyer, can you sue the company that fired all of you?

Dear Revenge Guy,

My annual performance bonus depends on key performance indicators (kpis).

My boss lists my kpis as his and receives full bonus when I achieve them ….. but gives me a hard time about receiving any bonus at all.

How do I shaft him?

Revenge JokerHi,
The workplace can be a brutal place… is there not an HR (Human Resources) that you can complain to?

Keep records of his malfeasance and then anonymously send it to the big
boss… that’s what I’d do… and have any co-workers team up with you to create an accurate report of this tyrant’s behavior.

Place a call to the big boss, pretending to be your boss (change the caller ID to say his name) and just ream him out.

Then let the cards fall where they may.
Best wishes,

Dear Revenge Guy,

I am a PM kitchen manager at a restaurant and I have a problem.

There are 3 people that work the morning shift and all day they talk shit and hate on me, I think, its cause there jealous of me, but they’ll try to make me look bad, piss me off, and annoy me.

 think they are trying to run me out, I’m not going anywhere though. But I get pissed off everyday when I get there.

I’ve been there 8 years and I’ve earned my position, they wish they had my job, but in all reality it sux, one day off a week, 55 to 65 hrs a week, all I hear is bitching and whining from my entire staff, I make schedules, order the products and cook every night on the main line.

One of them is 45 yrz old, (banquet cook) he acts as if his job is harder than everyone else’s and he is better than everyone else. His parents just recently came back into his life and are spoiling him with money, buying him a boat, paying his bills helping him buy a house, my parents are poor, my mom has a drug problem and I’ve earned everything I have, I hate him with a passion.

The other is my ex-roommate. He is just a morning prep cook where I work, he is single and lonely and pathetic, scares away girls he has a chance with and even the ones he doesn’t have a chance with. A real stalker type guy. He likes a girl whose with a man and pregnant with his baby. He likes to make comments about my job when he has no idea what kind of shit I put up with, and he compares his prep job to being a manager and tries to make it sound easy.

And the last one is a cook, 5 years older than me who gets a hard on seeing everyone hate on me, he usually provokes it. He loves seeing me angry like all of them, I can’t think of any way to get back at them.

I’m their boss, all of their bosses, but there’s nothing I can do, I get pissed off, and nearly bite my tongue until it bleeds.

If u can think of anything please help me out,
Chef X

Revenge JokerHi Chef X,
First things first…
As a boss you need respect, not animosity.
Talk with your boss or the owner, explain the difficulties you have with the staff.

Have a staff meeting and lay down the law.
Fire people when necessary.

It seems to me you have a lot of hostility and nothing to vent against. Time to hit the gym before something happens and they force you to lose your job.

This isn’t a revenge issue it’s an issue of respect.
You need to get some badly.

Just use your position to push these idiots enough that they’ll quit. It seems to me you have enough anger to steer things your way, use it for your benefit.

This isn’t a case for revenge but for getting back what these guys are stealing from you… well, actually that is my definition of when someone needs revenge. So be the BOSS now.

Dear
Revenge Guy,

So…. my no good husband had been cheating on me for over six months…We’d been together since I was 17, over ten years.

I
finally found out who he’d been cheating with…my best friend of over 15 years, consequently the maid of honor in my wedding. These two carried on under my nose, knowing that I trusted both of them.

It wasn’t
until I contracted an STD that I found out….These people BOTH need some serious revenge… Did I mention that I cared for his 85 year old grandmother for over three years, in my home!!!

This good wife was done wrong…. Now my ex and his Wh–re are going on like I never existed…. What can I do???
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Revenge JokerHi R,
I assume that all legal avenues have been exhausted and you’ve already taken him to the cleaners.

If you haven’t, now is the time to get a lawyer.
And I’m sure you’ve already notified the health board about your STD and it’s source?

Then this is what you do:
First off, place a legal notice classified ad in the paper that, because of your ex-husbands infidelity, you will no longer be responsible for debts incurred in his name.
Second, if they’re passing STD’s around, then not only wasn’t he unfaithful to you, they’ve been cheating on each other too.

I’d create some business cards, describing a "beautiful, buxom blonde" that only does outcalls, if you know what I mean, and put her name and his number on them and start leaving them in every bathroom in every bar in town.

Dear RG,
I thought I’d email you and ask for your revenge advice which I’d really appreciate!!And by the way, I live in Lebanon :)

You see,I was engaged to this guy who was (and still is) the love of my
life for 3 years.We were college classmates when we got engaged though my dad wasn’t really in favor of the engagement at the time as my guy had no job then or anything but we were so in love and he promised to make me so happy and never leave me.He said I was the girl of his dreams and the love of his life!

We were so happy at first, but then he started to change; he started to ignore me, make fun of me, yell at me and shout at me and call me bad names then he’d apologize later and say he was nervous and sorry and so on.I always forgave and forgot.Later, his dad died and this (I don’t know why!!) made him even more cruel to me but I still took it as I realized he had to be going thru such a hard time, I never complained though I’d tell him I was offended or hurt by something he did or said.

It started getting worse but I still loved him so much and thought he’d be the way he was before.He started being mean to my dad and also his uncle (who happens to be so cruel) wasn’t good to me or my family.

My x-fiance started dictating me things and only ordering me even if i don’t like it.I talked to him a million of times about how a man should treat his girl and wife to be, sometimes he listened, sometimes not!

He was really tight on money, hardly got me anything and I used to get him so many gifts.

I was so romantic and caring to him, showering him with words, cards and deeds which he seemed to like but never showed his appreciation or love for me.
Then our families disagreed as they’d promised us something that they didn’t do so my dad was very offended and decided to call the whole thing off.I felt very bad myself at the time, my x-fiance and I had been fighting and I was being misunderstood and taken for granted and forgotten all the time.

Anyway,when my dad called my x-fiance he didn’t actually call it off, he only told him he was mad at what was going on.

I called my x-fiance later and to my utter surprise, he said he was very offended by what my dad had told him and that it seemed right we should break up as we hadn’t been happy together lately?!!

I cried while talking to him on the phone, begging and asking him to re-consider us again as I can’t live without him and he kept saying NO…..

Days later I called him and he hung up on me and wouldn’t take my calls!!!!
I couldn’t take it anymore at the point!I had a serious nervous break down which I’m still recovering from (it all happened a couple of months ago), I couldn’t sleep for days and I’m still insomniac, I quit my job, I’ve thought about killing myself many times, every night I’d cry myself to sleep…I’d cry so bad I’d think I’d die!!
I feel more dead than alive.Honestly, I still miss him so much and still cry and still love him an the thing is i can’t imagine myself being with anyone else?!!!It’s like a curse!!

RG,I’m very angry inside! I feel this guy really used me and my family.We were very kind to him, more even than his own family! He’d have dinner at our house almost every day, he’d come study with me, dad would bring him the books he needed and drop them by his house (not that my x-fiance was poor),I trusted him so much and he always told me I was his wife already….I feel I’ve wasted my life with him and I took so much for him and from him and even though I love him, part of me despises him!! I feel I’ve wasted the sweetest years of my life with him and that he was infatuated by my beauty and poetic romantic nature which he later told me was silly!!I feel I’ve been betrayed and deceived and lied to.

This guy wanted to alter me , the things he loved me were hateful to him later and everything was my fault by the end and I started having very low self esteem.
The thing is since his dad’s death, I feel he’s been blindly following his uncle and I feel his uncle is a bad example to him and he already treats his wife bad!They (my x-finace and his uncle)even went to my uncles saying that they wanna repair things and get us together and I was thrilled and hopeful.Only they told them how they hated my dad (why??he never wronged them!!It’s they who did!!) and stuff like that…They never claim to be wrong this family!!

Now his mom and her family have been calling us and they want us back.My x-fiance has never contacted me since we broke up except for a couple of emails he sent me and told me he still wanted me but my dad has wronged him and my dad has to apologize to him?????!!!That was like one and half month ago.And we’ve said no.But I don’t even think this NO would break his heart!!

I really want revenge on this guy and his uncle who I really hate as I think he’s played with my x-fiance’s head and my x-finace just trusts him so much and thinks he’s his like his dad and loves him like a son,I wanna break his heart.I know that some day he’ll know what my love was and what I had to take for him, right??

Please RG tell me what to do, I really need your help.Thank you so much!!

Revenge JokerHi M,
That is certainly a horrible story.
This guy seems to come from a long line of control freaks.The best revenge will be "living well".
You need distance from him and fast. I’d suggest sending him one final gift, a dead rose.

Check out http://www.deadroses.com and send him an appropriate message. Then
find yourself another boyfriend.
Let me know how things work out.
Best wishes,
The Revenge Guy


Dear Rg,
I have a problem with my boyfriend. He has been cheating on me with his
ex-wife. 3 times really. He says it shouldnt matter because we are not
married. well she wouldnt take him back so he wants to keep me know.

Let me say the marriage did end because of her. she is a drunk and cheated on him all the time. She mostly hurt his pride and ego. But for him to turn around and hurt me the same way is just to much. How can I get revenge? I dont want to sleep with someone else to get even.
CW

Hi CW,
Revenge usually means you’re gonna stick around and see how things turn out once your plan is set in motion. In this case, don’t stick around. He’s just as bad as his ex is, because he knows the hurt cheating will cost and he did it anyways.
His ex never hurt his pride and ego, he used the fake hurt to get into your head, heart and pants.

Face facts, you’ve been used by a pro and now he’s hoping you’ll stick around for more. More forgiveness, apologies and his selfish sexual needs. I bet he isn’t really that good in bed, just needs you to tell him he is. I’m right, aren’t I?

So, CW, your next step is what type of revenge is suitable. Good enough to let him know how you felt and how you feel now. And you’re right, sleeping with someone else isn’t the answer, for now, keep your legs closed, girl!
This is what I suggest:
Go to the Revenge Coupons page:

Print yourself out some of the "Free With Purchase" coupons. Set it up
and start printing on them: "Bad sex, small penis but huge asshole" and
underneath add his name. Then leave them around everywhere. For extra
fun, add his phone number.
Then get the hell away from him, leave him to his own life and get a new
one for yourself.

OK.
Let me know how things work out for you, I care. Really.
Best wishes,
The Revenge Guy


Hey whats up?
I came across your site tonight and thought I’d request a little advice.

I am a shift lead at my office and have three employees that work for me, last week one of them had some kind of break down and started screaming at me in the middle of the office.

Needless to say I was pissed but let it slide, only having my supervisor pull him aside and inform him that his behavior was inappropriate. Well he had no excuse for the outburst but instead accused me of being a racist.

This is a very serious charge in my company. Now just to give you a little background, In an office of thirty people I am one of only two "white" people, the rest of my co workers are from all over the world, and in the three years I have worked there NONE have had any problems or complaints about me. My supervisor treated his charge according to company policy etc, and we have a meeting . He whips out this list of things I have done.

All of which are completely ludicrous, including things like borrowing his pen and instead of handing it to him I slid it across the table to him, and calling one of our security guards a bit scary (a 6’5 330 lbs guy). Needless to say he was laughed out of the meeting and told that nothing he was complaining about was anywhere near discrimination or racism.

But now I have a formal complaint in my file. There is nothing stopping this guy from making another false charge and making it two on file, which would look horrible at my next performance review. So I want to get him, I want him to get so annoyed that he quits. Any ideas?
Thanks,
J.

Hi J.,
This is always a tricky area. But what I suggest is to turn the tables a bit? When others are in ear shot, and you pass him by, or he walks by you, say aloud "What was that?", as if he muttered something to you. Continue this behavior for a couple of weeks, randomly, so as to not overdue it. Then file a complaint yourself as to his harassment and condescending attitude to you, comments made under his breath, etc.

dear revenge guy,
i have this guy at school and hes really harsh to me, on thursday he said that i was ugly and dumb! i really want to get revenge hes fat and i was thinking of putting like a 100 leaflets on how to loose weight but i want something more effective please help
from w.

Hi W,
Why bother pointing out his obvious problems, you’ll just start a war.

I suggest you do is this:

Buy a package of Valentine’s Day cards, they are cheap now that the day has passed. Make sure they are all the same card. Write a love letter inside from this kid to one of your teachers. Write the same message inside all of the cards. Stick the cards all over the school where other people will read them.
That’ll get him.
Best wishes,
The Revenge Guy
