Colleagues can make or break a job. In John’s case, his colleague not only broke his spirit but shattered her own dreams as well. Let’s take a look at some well-played revenge.
A Workplace Bully with a Vindictive Streak
John was working in a pizza shop alongside a woman named Sarah. Now, Sarah was quite a character, a vindictive soul who seemed to thrive on drama.
She had a tendency to single out her targets and relentlessly bully them until they quit.
Desperation and Need
You see, where Jon’s from college students could receive welfare assistance if their parents earned below a certain threshold.
John desperately needed this support, but he was ineligible due to his parents’ income – even though they weren’t actually supporting him.
Every penny counted, and his job at the pizza shop was a much-needed lifeline.
Sarah’s First Victim
Matt, a brand new employee, fell victim to Sarah’s harassment. He couldn’t take it anymore and left the job.
With Matt out of the picture, Sarah turned her attention to John.
Schemes and Sabotage
She devised a series of schemes: lies, shouts filled with hostility, neglecting to warn him about hot pans – all in an attempt to make his life unbearable.
A Web of Lies
She’d tell the shop owner that John called him a snake and conspire with her friends to accuse him of slacking off, all sorts of things to hurt John.
The Financial Toll
And it worked. John’s hours got slashed, affecting not only his finances but also his mental well-being.
The situation became so dire that he contemplated dropping out of college because he couldn’t afford his rent anymore.
A Twist of Fate
But here’s where the story takes an intriguing turn. Sarah, despite having a job at the pizza shop, was illegally claiming student welfare! This dear readers, was a grave offense.
Sarah’s Welfare Fraud
You can’t claim welfare if you’re employed, and Sarah, in the naive pursuit of some extra cash, was unwittingly defrauding the government.
What she didn’t realize was that the world of law, her chosen field, was incredibly strict. Even allegations of plagiarism in college could permanently disqualify someone from becoming a lawyer.
Reporting Sarah’s Fraudulent Activities
Despite all the torment he endured, John wasn’t one to back down. He knew about an anonymous complaints line for welfare fraud, a tool he decided to use.
He reported Sarah’s fraudulent activities, providing the welfare department with all the necessary details. Most of the time, these complaints led to nothing, but this time was different.
Multiple Complaints Against Sarah
The gods of karma were smiling upon John, and the welfare officials took action, paying a visit to the pizza shop armed with multiple complaints against Sarah!
Caught in the Act
During that unexpected visit, John’s boss, perhaps unaware of the consequences, cooperated fully. He showcased all the CCTV footage, giving the officials a clear view of Sarah’s actions.
The truth came out, and Sarah found herself in hot water!
A Harsh Lesson in Legal Consequences
When questioned, she panicked and confessed to everything. It was a harsh lesson in the importance of knowing one’s rights, especially for someone studying law.
Sarah’s Dreams Shattered by a Suspended Sentence
Long story short – justice prevailed. Sarah received a suspended sentence, a punishment that effectively shattered her dreams of becoming a lawyer.
She dropped out of college, her aspirations crumbling around her.
Graduation and Success
As for John, well, he persevered. He continued working at the pizza shop, clinging to his job for stability. Eventually, he graduated with an associate’s degree and secured a decent job, proving that sometimes, the underdog does triumph in the end!
Redditors were overjoyed with John’s revenge. One user aptly said, “When you’re one whistle blower away from being caught, the sensible thing to do is to NOT antagonize people. Guess her brain was as trash as her attitude…”
