A woman recently shared a story about how she’d handled her difficult boss. The thoughtless boss had fired the woman without good cause, but did the woman go too far to even the score? Here’s what she had to say:
The Woman Was A Good Employee
“I’m 28F, working at as a semi truck driver. I work for a contractor within a large mail carrier. As part of my job, I have my doubles endorsement, which means I often haul two short trailers rather than one long one.”
The Woman Knew The Ins And Outs Of Her Job
Because the woman was used to hauling two trailers instead of one, she was familiar with the special equipment needed. Perhaps the most important part of the rig was the trailer dolly, a heavy component used to connect the two trailers. Moving the dolly was no mean feat: it weighed over 2000 lbs.
Trouble Brewed At Work
“I had some scheduling conflicts with my last job due to childcare issues and had worked out a resolution that included taking weekend shifts for the guys that wanted those weekend days off anyway.”
The Boss Didn’t Like Her Solution
The woman explained that her boss had not approved of her changes to the schedule. He fired her and told her that she’d need a reference from him if she was ever going to get hired anywhere else. Somehow, she doubted he’d speak highly of her.
The Woman Bounced Back
The woman’s boss had underestimated her. Within a few days, she found another job. In fact, it was even better than the one she’d had before. When she bumped into her old boss again, she made sure to let him see that she was flourishing.
The Woman Saw A Chance For Revenge
The woman knew that her boss parked his Cadillac in the same parking lot where many of the city’s trucks were stored. When she had to go to the parking lot to pick up a truck, something caught her eye.
Karma Came To Bite The Boss
The woman had to move a dolly out of the way to pull her truck out. She decided to move the heavy component right in front of her boss’s Cadillac. He would be in for a surprise when he tried to drive home.
The Boss Was Trapped By Red Tape
Special training was needed to move the dolly, and the woman knew that neither her old boss nor any of his employees had the certification. They were unable to move the dolly that was blocking his car in without going against company policy. He was stuck.
The Woman Felt Justified
While she knew that the dolly would be moved eventually, the woman could help but feel satisfied at the minor inconvenience that she’d caused her old boss. He’d think twice before he crossed an employee again.
Did She Go Too Far?
The woman knew that she’d been a little petty, but she felt that her boss deserved it. After all, he had fired her without a good reason and, while everything had worked out for her, things could have gone very differently. As far as she was concerned, the scales of justice were balanced.
People supported the woman for her actions. One person said, “What goes around comes around. Nice job, lady!”
Another person argued that, while the stunt with the dolly had been entertaining, the woman had really got her own back in another way. They said, “What I’m trying to say is that the best revenge is getting a better job.”
