How To Get On-The-Job Revenge By The
Need a little help getting even with someone at your job that has
done you wrong? Maybe a great revenge technique is just what you need to
help you get even and regain your stature as an important person.
I have a co-worker that loves to mess with me.
The guy will do things such as poke needle sized holes in my
Styrofoam cup so when I pour the coffee in it seeps out into my hand
and burns me slowly.
He has put a dead moth in my coffee cup, placed
a live cockroach in my Altoids container, and the most recent is
fill my empty water bottle with salt so when I filled it up and
chugged it I almost vomited.
I need some advice as to how to get him back.
He has a cherry
corvette which he keeps clean religiously and often leaves a TV
dinner in the microwave until he gets around to eating it.
the two rules that you should never mess with a mans automobile or
food but he has crossed the line. I am not worried about any legal
ramifications because he has been an employee for 30 years and I own
the company. What would you suggest? Thanks!
If you own the company you should be aware of the rules regarding
Have a sit down with your lawyer and fire this ass. Or at the least
give him a warning letter and let him know that his future is in
And I don’t care for the rules, I’d throw his food out or over salt
And yes, a rotting cucumber under the back seat of his car will make
a hell of a mess after two weeks.
He’s not playing by any rules, now is he?
And what is he really after? Getting fired? Forced into retirement?
Or is he just off his meds?
Go get him!

First off I must say that I thoroughly enjoy your
website, you truly are gifted.
A little about me: I am a blue collar worker, working in a small
shop of about 20 guys. I’m in my early forty’s and and am a hard
I’m home every night around 6:30 to my wife and two small
boys. About 10 years ago I started a small side business that I work
every day after my regular job for about 2 hours. Although I will
never get rich, it does allow me to give my family a few extras that
they normally wouldn’t have. The second job pays for school cloths
and a summer vacation. I drive 8 year old cars and don’t flaunt
However some of the guys at work, one in particular is and always
has been overcome with jealousy of me and my small business. I have
always spoken well to and about this co-worker.
He and his wife are
busy body’s and are into every ones business. I even did some work
for him on the side and gave him a very cheap price because he was a
co-worker. He always acts nice to my face, but behind my back he is
extremely venomous, making up story’s about me, etc.
The problem: About six months ago the local deli that we all
frequent on a daily basis for coffee break and lunch, gave me
permission to pin my business card to their cork board. You know,
the ones you see in stores where local business put their cards for
potential customers to see.
Anyhow, every day after coffee AND after
lunch MY card is gone. I put a new one up twice a day. And it is
I have used the process of elimination to detect how
was removing it. For the last 6 months, I watched as my co-workers
took vacations/sick days or whatever. Many would go out of state for
vacation and the card was ALWAYS removed EVERY day for the last 6
months. Except when this guy ( I’ll call him Jim) was out. He took a
sick day. The card stayed on. He took a vacation day, the card
stayed. I’m sure it is Jim.
No one else knows anything about any of this. I’ve kept it all to
myself. This guy would deny any of it. He is such a pussy and is
afraid of confrontation. He bad mouths me behind my back but is
afraid to face me. Please help me Revenge Guy. I want to get him
GOOD, I want to make him miserable and mess with his mind….I NEED
Seriously, I would have paid someone to watch the bulletin board and
grab a picture of him taking down your business card rather than
watching for six months and using the powers of elimination.
Now then, the next time you put up a business card, write on the top
of it: Jim don’t take this down.
These jealous asses that try to build themselves up by tearing
others down are weak and afraid of being thrown into the spotlight.
They know that they have no value as a person, they can’t contribute
to the betterment of themselves. They are led by the nose by the
stronger person in their relationships and friendships, needing to
build excitement and conversations in their lives by discrediting
anyone better than them.
But face-to-face they are friendly, even complimentary, because it’s
part of their weaselly nature to hide their true feelings. To not
ask for anything for anyone but expect it from others, and hate
those that have achieved because they cannot achieve.
These are the people at the bottom of the ladder, not making any
effort to get higher up but expecting others to come along and drag
them up. Make life easier for them for no other reason than they
Ayn Rand wrote some excellent books about the Achievement of Man and
how the non-achievers, out of inherent and inbred selfishness,
expect the achiever, the builder, to do for them for no other reason
than they live.
Read “Atlas Shrugged” and “The Fountainhead”. Both powerful books
that describe the very situation you are in with dealing with this
loser, this nothing.
These types prefer to hide in the shadows. When confronted by anyone
of knowledge and power they prefer to fade into the woodwork.
Stand up to this idiot.
Shine a light onto his behavior.
Make his nature known.

Hey, my name Is Liz and my b/f works for a local radio station and
has two cohosts on his show.
Well, on Saturday night the two cohost
did there own show and started to bash me calling me a slut and
other names for no reason. So to get my revenge and to create a
topic on my boyfriend’s show, he’s allowing me to come In and get my
revenge Wednesday night on his show.
I can’t think of anything good or that
I would be able to do due the the FCC so If you have any Ideas or if
you could direct me so someone who could help It would be a big
What I’d suggest is a show using the theme "Why girls don’t like

I work the front desk at a hotel, and yesterday
I went in to pick up my paycheck, just a normal day.
When I arrived, I found an envelope with
my name on it. I thought, oh, a note from my manager telling me that I
messed up the other night or something. I proceeded to open it, and
before I got the note out, a picture fell out. It was a picture of a
very pretty young lady whom I had never seen before.
I then read the note. Quote, "I couldn’t
help but to notice your stunning good looks last night. Please call
me!!" Her name and number followed, and taking one glance back at the
picture, I zoomed up to cloud nine! YES, I had finally done it! I had
worked my charm enough to get a HOT girl interested in me!
So, I ran in the back offices and spouted
to all my co-workers of my recent success in the lady department (for I
don’t have much at all you see).
As I was explaining, I was met with some
smiles that wouldn’t be there unless "something was going on," and so
then thought that this MAY be a hoax. Well, I asked them if it was a
joke, and everyone said no, they didn’t know anything of it. And so with
joy and merriment, I continued to tell the restaurant workers and all
the sales department and all the housekeeping staff, I told everybody.
I then left, and gave it more thought.
Having three bits of information on this young lady, and being college
aged, I logged on to facebook to search my college network for her.
TA-DA she pops up! Score another for the
With caution, I write a message and ask
her if she left an envelope for a guy named Bill at any local hotel.
Anxiously waiting for her reply, I didn’t call the number, but instead
entered it into Google. BAM! It pops up. But what to my amazed eyes is
the number to? None other but a local strip club! IT WAS AN OFFICIAL
A few hours later, I received a reply back
from her in which she told me no, she didn’t leave an envelope for
anyone. I knew then who was behind this. The valet manager! SHE IS TO
I immediately call her up and tell her the
story. After a good 15 minutes of straight laughter on her part, she
confessed to the crime. As with all things of this nature, I take it
very well, a good laugh for all! However, this time… I WANT REVENGE!!
This kind of thing happens to me all the
time, maybe not hoaxes, but just things that would only happen to me! So
please, with all your might, do you have any suggestions that I could
do? I would like to carry it out at work, at the hotel if possible. If
you have ANY ideas, let me know! Thank you so much!
If you want to get her back, this is what you do:
You’re going to fake a call to her from your local "Labor Relations
Board" or whatever agency handles harassment in the workplace. Look it
up in the government section of the phone book.
Have a friend, a voice she won’t recognize, call her at work with
"This is Mr. McAbe, I am an investigator with XXX Agency. I am calling
you to inform you that you are under investigation for workplace
harassment. Although I cannot go into details over the phone you will
soon receive a registered letter with the details and how you can defend
yourself of this complaint. The letter will also have the appointment
time included. You should know that failure to comply will result in a
$5000.00 fine and possibly jail time for contempt.
"At your appointment please be
prepared with documents concerning your job duties, work schedule
and a list of employees directly under your supervision.
Thanks. Any questions you have should be addressed, in writing, to
this office using the contact information in the registered letter.
Then, of course, send her a registered letter, to her at work.
Inside just write "Hahahaha!".

Dear Revenge Guy,
About a month and a half ago I was fired from a job I loved. Here is the
Everything was going great. I had been working at this video store, it
rhymes with Shamerican fambly video. I loved it and I loved my co-workers.
It was a fun job and I was told repeatedly that I was doing wonderfully.
About 2 and a half months after I was hired we had the monthly employees
meeting in which an issue was brought to our managers attention that one
of my co-workers had had a MAJORLY sucky customer and had said under his
breath that if he ever saw this customer on the street he would "kick his
The manager then went on to say that, and I quote "While it’s a HUGE no-no
to say such things
in the hearing of customers, I want you to know that while YOU ARE ON YOUR
OWN TIME YOU ARE FREE TO DO AND SAY AS YOU WISH if you are not in
Ok..flash forward a week..
I’m working alone, it’s extremely busy and this customer comes in. I’ll
refer to her as Toad-Woman because that’s exactly what she looks like.
Anyway, she goes into a major rant because I can’t help her check out her
movies in 30 seconds. She huffs and puffs and makes my job as hard as
To make a long story short I was SO pissed and upset that I immediately
went on my break after she left and burst into tears when I was alone in
the office. The general public can be truly evil, but this was too much.
Anyway, I said to myself that if I ever saw this evil cow in the streets I
would have definite words with her (remember, I had been given express
The very next day (YES, the next day) I went to the post office, and do
you want to guess who I ran into ? Yes, Toad-Woman in the flesh…UNreal.
Well, I tore into her. At no time did I swear at her or threaten her. As a
matter of fact my husband was a witness to the entire incident. I merely
told her that she was in my opinion a miserable excuse for a human being
and asked her how she slept at night tormenting innocent customer service
She got all outraged and self-righteous saying that "She was the customer
and I couldn’t talk
to her like this" to which I replied that "yes, I COULD, having had
Leslies (the manager) permission" and that at that moment, SHE was not the
"customer" and I for SURE wasn’t an employee, I was MARCY. Out doing MARCY
things, not "Marcy, the customer ass-kisser" in other words.
She said that she would go talk to Leslie and see what SHE had to say.
Then she made a racist comment towards me saying "I’ve been taking crap
from ‘little white people’ such as yourself my whole life because I’m
Mexican. Which I took as reverse discrimination and quite frankly I’m sick
of minorities playing the race card all the time. Then she stormed off
while I was standing there with my mouth wide open because I couldn’t
think of anything quickly enough to reply.
Flash forward one week. It’s December 12th, the staff Xmas party. I have
heard absolutely NOTHING about Toad-Woman. NADA. But all the same, I’m
getting weird vibes. Leslie is acting ever so slightly different towards
me but I chalk it up to paranoia since she hadn’t mentioned the incident
thus far. But she’s definitely acting slightly colder towards me whereas
before she was totally friendly, even motherly.
After the party I report to work my evening shift as normal. Everything’s
fine. Nothings amiss, there’s even an Xmas stocking with my name on it,
hung up with the rest of my co-workers stockings.
I work my shift as
normal and go home.
The next day I report for my shift at noon. The assistant manager looks at
me kind of funny which I didn’t think anything of since he was always
looking funny. LOL (Jason is a straight up ultra cool guy)
So I ask him what is wrong, and he reaches into this drawer and hands me
an envelope telling me (with this melancholy look on his face) that Leslie
told him to give it to me and to turn in my key, that they no longer "need
That’s it. No chance to explain my side of the story. Tossed away like I
was a used tissue and nothing more. I couldn’t believe it.
I have to state that my performance was always dead on balls excellent
(remember the positive feedback from before). I was ALWAYS on time, always
there, filled in when others called in sick and about as reliable as
reliable GETS and this is how I’m treated. I even went in feeling terrible
for an hour on the ONE time I called in sick, to give my co-worker a
I asked for an explanation and Jason told me that he, himself had asked
Leslie why. She, quote said to him that "Unless an employee has been here
for longer then 3 months, we don’t have to give an explanation". In other
words, the "at will" bullshit.
I was devastated. A month and a half later I am still livid. Especially
since I have as yet to find new employment (the recession, you know?). I
have never in my life been treated this badly by an employer.
I can’t sue because this is an at-will state and the laws are all on the
side of the businesses. Not to mention the fact that I have no money *grim
I feel that what Leslie Cortez did to me was evil in the supreme. She had
me to an Xmas party the day before when she KNEW I was going to be fired
the next day (my final check was dated the day before, the day of the
She fired me just before Xmas and totally RUINED my kids
Christmas. She also fired me during a severe recession when she had to
know my chances of getting another job right away were slim to none. She
not only DIDN’T give me a chance to explain my side, but she didn’t stand
by what SHE said at the employee meeting.
My life has been totally ruined by what she did and even if I won a
gazillion dollars in the lottery I would STILL hate her guts and wish her
a slow horrible death.
Why ? Because she thought she could just toss a
human being in the garbage, right along with her used Kotexes and
innumerable Diet Pepsi cans. Then forget about me as if I never existed.
After telling me how "wonderful" I was doing.
Please help, revenge Guy. I have to deal with this because I can’t move on
till she’s made to suffer as I’ve suffered.
Oh, and you can offer up the same exact advice for Toad-Woman as well.
Quite frankly, I’m glad I haven’t seen HER in the street again. I’d
probably be in prison by now.
Thank you in advance.
I have to ask, is this the first job you ever had? I mean, have you never
heard of "taking one for the team"?
When you work in the customer service/retail world, you have to expect the
worst from people and take it in stride. RG has had his share of bad
customers but never would I take it outside of the job, you crossed a line
and are paying the price.
You weren’t fired wrongfully, you were fired for your bad judgment, at the
Learn from it.
You should be happy that you found out early that this type of job isn’t
for you. You want revenge? Get a job that pays more than the couple of
dollars an hour that your old boss Leslie was paying you.
And forget about
Toad-Lady – her life of discount movie rentals, stale popcorn nights all
crowded into her trailerhome lifestyle, screaming kids, drunk husband,
puking cats, surely is revenge enough.
The Revenge Guy is all for dealing out what’s due, but when you step in
it, you have to clean up your own mess and live with the results.
The Revenge Guy
With all due respect I have to wonder if you read my entire email.
I mentioned at least a couple times that I was given express permission BY
my ex-boss that when we were off the clock, we were free to do and say as
we pleased because during that time we were not employees. I am not one
who subsribes to the current corporate america ideology that we are owned
24/7 by those we just happen to work for.
Also, I’m not sure I got across the sheer depression and despair that
these people caused me.
My ex-boss for firing me just before Xmas and
ruining my kids holiday, and Toad-woman for purposely going to my boss
with the express purpose of eliminating my only source of income. How
could you not feel that this was especially evil ? And no, this was hardly
my first job.
I am 39 years old and have had many jobs and I can honestly
say that I have never been treated THIS shabbily. How could you excuse her
treating me this way after nearly three months of perfect punctuality and
the positive feedback I got.
Without even giving me a chance to explain. I
could understand her calling me to her office and writing me up, but to do
that chicken-shit crap having the assistant manager fire me ? I find it
totally inexcusable, and if you won’t help me, other then telling me it’s
my own fault, well, I’ll just take care of her myself.
Thank you for your time.
You are right, you email wanting revenge advice and I give you attitude.
This is what you should do:
Create coupons similar to the ones you’ll find at this website:
but make them like the video store, logo, phone number and all. Free
rentals, free candy, whatever you like.
Put them everywhere, in grocery stores, laundry mats, all over the place.
That’ll keep their hands full.
As for Toad-lady, if you ever see her again, go to the nearest store clerk
and tell them you saw her stuff something (clothes/food/whatever) down her
top. Let them grab her for shoplifting.

a fantastic website!
I have an issue that seriously needs addressing. I am currently
employed by a wine shipping company, however I am leaving at the end
of the week for another job. I started this job on November 1st, and
starting February 1st I begin my new job. I hope this says
I was hired as "Salary Exempt", so that I would not get paid
overtime; however I was expected to, and even ordered to work more
than the usual 40 hour workweek ( I was working an average of 60
hour weeks); there is no time clock, so I have no "proof" of my
hours. We are not given comp time off for extra hours worked,
I have a very strong work ethic, and I work quite hard for this
company. After three weeks, I was approached about a different
position that would be a fantastic opportunity for me, and I was
quite excited about it.
The supervisor of my department has a few nasty habits, including
delegating out all of her work to other people, then taking credit
for their hard work; and being a general loudmouth telling everyone
in the company everyone else’s personal business – as well is
professional business matters that are HR issues.
It was this
woman’s loudmouth jabbering to another employee that I overheard (as
well as everyone else in my department) that the fantastic
opportunity I had been approached with had been taken off the table,
but with no reason as to why.
From this company’s grapevine (the only way that the HR manager
communicates with the employees here), I found out that I had
offended the HR manager (this was news to me, we had only spoken 3
times, and I had always been very respectful to this woman), and her
way of "getting me back" was to make sure that I would never advance
in this company.
To this day, I do not know what I said, or did to offend this woman,
as she will not acknowledge my existence (this is a small company,
by the way). But wait, it gets better.
The supervisor of my department has another habit of blowing
situations out of proportion, and making more work for everyone,
including our clients. On December 15, this woman got an email from
a client that was taken out of context, then hung me out to dry with
that client. The upshot was that I no longer have permission to
communicate with our clients by email or phone calls (I process
their orders)- all communications have to go through the Supervisor
or one other CSR.
Like I mentioned, I start my new job- which happens to be a better
position for me, in a few days. However, my success is not enough
"punishment for the crimes" I have endured.
I have friends that
still work for this company, and need the jobs, and the usual
"legal" channels may actually close down this company- and are not
the option I am looking for. I want something that will be more than
pesky and mere annoyances. Can you help me, Revenge Guy?
I can see how you were taken advantage of. It’s an awful thing when,
in this day and age, employers still have the power over their
employees this way. Illegal working hours, poor conditions and
hateful supervisors should not have to be tolerated. In fact, it is
But, how can we get even?
How to exact revenge on the company and those supervisors without
endangering the employees that you leave behind, the people you are
happy to have worked with and now call friends?
This is how:
Click your way to your state employment agency’s website.
Copy and paste their logo into a word/text document that goes
something like this (you’ll want to make the document as
professional and official as possible):
Dear owners of XXX Company,
This letter is to inform you of a scheduled official visit by the
Department of Employment Standards on XXX date, XXX time.
We have received certain information from (put the hated HR’s name
here) and have opened an investigation of Employment Standards
During our visit please ensure you have the following documents
available for inspection:
Employee time cards for the past 5 years to present;
Employee work records for the past 5 years to present, including
current and former employees;
You see how the letter is going.
Be sure to print out an official looking envelope as well.
Edit my wording as necessary.
This should get exactly the reaction you are looking for, and who
knows, maybe working conditions will improve as well!

Two people have made my life very difficult over the last year, and its
for a little payback.
One is a total bitch ex colleague and one is a
lecherous ex boss, both of whom have trashed my name with some quite
serious effects on both my career and my wallet, due to lost earnings.
Consequently, I have been unable to find employment in the area and am

First the woman. In short she joined the company by my request to help
my excessive workload.
She couldn’t have been a worse choice – she was
lazy, incompetent and saw the job as an easy ride. She refused to do as I
asked, refused to undergo training from me and generally caused so many
problems, that I was having to work even longer hours to compensate.

played the boss well though, and in the end it was me that had to leave.
She has since caused problems including trashing me to a prospective
employer who phoned for a reference and started vile rumours about me all
She even got her daughter in on the act, who started a fight
with me in a bar.
Now, the boss. In short – asshole. Exploited me for my hard working
underpaid me, then got rid of me when all the hard work was done and he
could employ the lesser skilled bint above to do the basic maintenance, at
half the wages cost. During my time there, he sleazed over me – always
groping, hugging and trying to kiss me, despite being not only married,
also the fact that I was in a relationship with his best friend.
I’ve tried to let this lie and move on (literally), but something was
relayed to me today that was said by him that I’m boiling with anger. I’m
generally a calm and patient person, and I am prepared to wait for the
time and plan to get my revenge, so long as they both get what they
Legal action is not my cup of tea, though illegal action is certainly not
either. I’m looking for a happy medium, but I’m stumped.
I’d walk into his office, have a concealed tape recorder turned on, and
get him to admit what has occurred. Then sue the bejeezers out of him. I
am sure that with a clear voice recording and lawyer will take your case
on contingency so you don’t have to put out any money up front.
And a call to the local IRS wouldn’t hurt either. I’m sure you have some
inside information on some "bookkeeping irregularities".

I have a problem at work, and I hope that you can help me out.
explain what’s going on:
I work as a medic with a local ambulance service. After my partner of 2
years got promoted and transferred, I finally found another partner that
worked perfectly with me.
She and I had a wonderful working rhythm, she
was smart, knew her job and the area well, and exceeded my expectations of
a partner. Of course, our company being what it is, it was decided that I
should be teamed with another EMT. This new guy’s a DUMBASS! He has NO 911
experience, he doesn’t know the area or how to work with the folks in it,
and generally has no clue. It turns out that the only reason he got the
position over my preferred EMT is that his girlfriend is a supervisor at
our company, and they LOVE to stick their noses up management’s asses!
We work 24-hr shifts, just like firefighters. We have our own station
where our ambulance is kept. Please help me get rid of him. Please help me
soon! We can’t stand him over here!
Generally, I like to stick to the adage "Don’t pee where you swim" – which
means, causing havoc at work isn’t always in your best interest, if you
get caught many things could occur, legal, employment-wise, etc.
That being said, I’d start a campaign of having girls call this guy at
work, through the main office switchboard, and other lines, leaving
messages that will find their way back to his girlfriend. If he’s such a
bad worker, the heat from his GF should be enough for him to change
careers and quickly!
The Revenge Guy
I have this problem with a co-worker, kind of. See, I work in the
communications business and a girl that is one of the people that I
have to communicate with on a daily basis is my problem. I normally
can handle myself fairly good – but this one is something else. She
does nothing but complain about me doing my job, always "f–king"
stuff up for her and making her look stupid. She’s already been
warned about her attitude and I’ve had to fill out an incident
report on her. I’ve told my director time and time again that the
next time she does this I am going to very rudely put her in her
place. Well, she knows about these comments (which I could care
less) and she is very well aware of how I feel about her. So, now
it’s almost like she’s "out for blood" (so to speak) especially
after I filled a complaint against her and she against me.
Everyone that I work with and that works with her knows that she’s
difficult to work with, rude, hateful, and just a flat out pain in
the butt! But I’m not the type of person that can keep quiet when
someone is flat out being a bitch. I’m the person that stops you
dead in your tracks and puts you in your place. So I bet your
wondering why I am sending you an email about this; why don’t I
handle it myself.
See, I want to go about this professional, polite, but quickly put
her in her place and make her eat it kind of thing. Everything that
I do at work is monitored/watched/listened to so I have to seem nice
– but I’m past my limit. I was writing you to see if you had any
suggestions on how to get this girl to shut-up and go on about her
way. Because once I open my mouth and something comes out, I can’t
guarantee that it will be completely nice. Normally, I try to keep
to myself and my opinions to myself until I am pushed to my limit or
just can’t hold it in anymore. So, I am worried about my work
environment afterwards – but I think everyone will understand where
I am coming from.
I look forward to your response and hope that you can help me go
about this in a semi-respectable way. If not, then it looks like I’m
going to have to get ugly about it. Thanks!
If I’ve read your letter correctly, it seems that you’ve
already shown your animosity towards this co-worker and that,
because of workplace monitoring, you’re unable to easily strike
back. You’ll be the first suspect in any unusual happenings. So,
what you’ve got to do is strengthen your mettle.
You’re going to be all ‘nicey-nice’ until the time for revenge is
So, what you’ll start doing is co-operating with her. Any little
complaint she has, with your work, with what is going on at work,
you’ll attempt to investigate. For instance, she has a problem with
the work you send her way, question her about her reasons. Take
notes why she is unsatisfied. Help her to figure out the basis of
her complaints. Take detailed notes, including date, time and names
of those involved.
You’ll seem helpful to her, biting your tongue, all the while
creating a dossier of her constant complaining and nit-picking about
your own work. After a month or two, you’ll be able to formally
request her transfer/dismissal with the evidence you’ve gathered.
You may even be able to form a picture of a harassment against her,
strengthening your position. Your notes will detail how you’ve tried
to help but been humiliated by her.
If you can hold your tongue and play this out, victory will be

parents don’t want to get involved and the other managers just tell
me to talk to him only. What can I do to get rid of this guy or get
some help at the store?
Life is hard enough without some jerk making your work life even
Put your request in writing that he give you better shifts
and make sure you send copies to the store manager and whoever is
higher up the management chain than him. Explain your situation
clearly and calmly.
If that doesn’t work, write a love letter that
supposedly comes from him to you. Drop it in the staff room and
watch the s**t fly. If you’re questioned about it say that you never
got the letter.
The ensuing embarrassment should be good enough to
get him out of the store.

Dear Revenge Guy,
Life has been good to me, so far.
Then my boss went and hired this
idiot. He’s a real wet blanket, no sense of humor. And his body odor
kills. I’m a mechanic, so we all sweat, but this guy wears the same
sweats under his coveralls all week long.
And he shaves his head,
otherwise I’m sure we’d all be swimming in the grease that would be
coming from his hair. How can I get rid of him without it coming back at
I have to ask, are you a Baggins? LOL.
Anyways, jobs are awful things to
have. You’re selling yourself for however many hours, doing some types
of tasks that generally sucks, with people you’d never otherwise
associate with. And to add to it, you have no control over who you have
to work with, sometimes even for.
But to get rid of sweaty, dirty bald
guy, this is what I suggest:
Call up your local health board, anonymously, and have them drop by your
workplace. Make sure they know to check on smelly/baldy guy based on
some type of hygiene report. No employer likes official notices being
given. This will get rid of him fast.

I have a career of 26+ years as a NYS employee… both
as a counselor and parole officer…. with awards, citations,
commendations etc.. now, I’ve been suspended without pay for
this man has caused personnel to transfer and lies
about his and others work.
I want this man to suffer with moderate
That’s a toughie. I prefer the total shakedown.
I’m always peeved when idiots have a higher position than those that do
the real work. Too many bosses are just idiots. Too many people have to
work for these idiots.
But, getting even with the boss has a certain amount of risk, you have
to be aware of this.
So, moderate annoyance it is.
This is what you do:
Save flyers from your local newspaper.
With those flyers you’ll mail them to him, in a way that requires a
‘personal signature’. When he’s out of his office, you’ll get in there
and empty the stapler, jam the fax machine, loosen the most used number
off of the phone and, on his computer, go into the Control Panel > Mouse
Properties> and reverse the right and left click functions.
Any which way you can get him out of the way, find more of these
moderate annoyances that will keep him occupied for a few seconds. Over
time, he’ll start doubting himself.
He’ll be unsure… And after a while he’ll convince himself that he’s
At this point you can start doing things that you said he told you to
do, not do things he told you to do….
He’ll think he’s losing his mind.
