Cyrus, a 60-year-old man, had his fair share of experience working in a manufacturing facility where he handled maintenance duties. One day, while he was installing a new piece of equipment, he found himself involved in a clash with a rude and disrespectful younger coworker. Let’s take a look at how he handled it.
The Workplace Soundtrack Battle Begins
It all happened when Cyrus was installing a new piece of equipment. A young production employee, a 26-year-old kid, seemed to believe that his music should be the soundtrack for the entire building.
Can We Lower the Volume, Please?
For Cyrus, who had seen his fair share of workplace conflicts over the years, this situation was no different. After a couple of hours of enduring the blaring tunes, Cyrus decided it was time to address the issue.
A Frustrating Response from the Young Employee
Cyrus approached the young man and politely requested if he could lower the volume a bit. It wasn’t just about the noise; the lyrics of the songs were also in violation of the company’s policies. However, the response he received wasn’t great.
Defiance and Dirty Looks
The young employee shot Cyrus a dirty look and, in an act of defiance, cranked the volume up even higher. As if that weren’t enough, he flipped the bird before walking away.
Cyrus, understandably, wasn’t pleased with this response.
Cyrus’s Revenge Plan
Being a resourceful individual, Cyrus decided to take matters into his own hands. He had a plan brewing in his mind.
You see, Cyrus had some stereo components that he had initially intended for his truck, but now he had a different purpose in mind. He wanted to get some revenge.
Crafting a Homemade Boom Box
Over a four-day weekend, Cyrus took advantage of the resources at his workplace. He had the office arrange to cut some parts using their industrial laser.
With the precision of a seasoned craftsman, he constructed a formidable boom box – emphasis on the boom!
The Portable Powerhouse Is Ready
This homemade creation used a car stereo, amps boasting a whopping 6000 watts of power, and not one, not two, but three car batteries to keep it running!
Cyrus added steel casters to the bottom so he could move it, transforming it into a portable powerhouse.
The Stage Is Set for a Showdown
By the time Tuesday rolled around, everyone was back to work, including the music-loving coworker.
Cyrus had informed the plant manager about his unconventional plan, and to his surprise, he got permission to proceed. The stage was set.
The Battle Begins
Cyrus wheeled out his imposing boom box, placing it strategically next to the young man’s smaller music player, and patiently waited for the inevitable showdown.
He let the kid turn on his music before starting his monstrous music blaster. Immediately, the stereo blared to life, drawing looks from around the room.
Cyrus Drowns Out the Competition
When the young man cranked up his music, Cyrus didn’t back down. In fact, he turned up his own creation and drowned out the competition!
The noise became so overwhelming that the young man couldn’t even hear the music he was attempting to play!
Cyrus’s Musical Barrage
Cyrus, well aware of the songs his coworker disliked, had prepared a short playlist of them and put it on repeat.
The Kid Tries to Apologize
The kid couldn’t stand the relentless barrage of music and tried to extend an olive branch and apologize for his previous behavior.
A Sonic BOOM Revenge Moment
However, Cyrus responded the same way the kid had – flipped the bird, upped the volume, and walked away! BOOM – mic drop moment.
The Homemade Sound System’s Impac
This homemade sound system packed such a punch that it could be heard clearly from outside the building, even at a distance of 300 feet!
Three Days of Musical Torture
After three days of this relentless musical torture, the guy had had enough. He threw in the towel, quit, and went to find work elsewhere!
“Don’t Mess With the Old Guys”
Cyrus had got his revenge, proving a valuable lesson – one that he made sure was loud and clear: “Don’t mess with the old guys. They have years of revenge planning before you ever get started.”
