He Got Revenge on His Bullying Boss – Does Anything Feel THIS Good?

A Reddit user described a recent experience they had when a horrible ex-boss applied to the same company they worked at and they made sure the ex-boss didn’t get the job.

Walking on Eggshells

OP (Original Poster) worked at a previous company with a boss that was very hard to work for.

The boss had everyone walking on eggshells when they were in the office and made at least two girls cry because of how mean he was.

OP said a lot of the employees quit because the boss couldn’t control his temper.

The boss also made everyone think he was the best at doing everything when in reality, he had a hard time completing his own tasks.

Atmosphere in the Office

OP said that the office’s vibe depended very much on the boss’s mood for the day and that if he was having a bad day, everyone else would be as well.

Overall OP described the boss as disrespectful and unprofessional, which in turn made OP start to look for another job.

OP eventually got a new job at a different company.

Revenge Is Sweet

After some time, OP found out that their ex-boss had recently applied to work at this new company as well!

OP went to tell the interviewers and HR all about their experience with this previous boss and how he came across in his old role.

OP soon found out that the interviewers took to heart what OP had warned them about.

The interviewers focused on the traits that OP had used to describe the person’s behavior and made an effort to make sure these were accurate characteristics.

The ex-boss did not get the job at the new company.

A Reality Check

OP was thrilled that they were not going to have to work with this ex-boss again.

They felt as though the ex-boss finally got a reality check that he weren’t as good at his job as he thought he was.

Many Reddit users chimed in, praising OP for taking the initiative to warn their company about the potential hire.

Unfit for the Job

While OP had been contemplating if it was petty of them to make such an effort to ensure the ex-boss wasn’t hired, Reddit users disagreed.

They commented that it was an honest reference and that the interviewers should be grateful for the inside scoop instead of potentially hiring a person that was unfit for the job.

Readers Related to the Experience

There were quite a few users also describing past bad experiences with managers. Many have now found better bosses and are quite impressed with the change in their work lives.

One wrote “Good managers listen to their employees’ input and want them to be their best. I presently have a great one. When he’s thinking of implementing something new he always runs it by his team, because he knows his boots-on-the-ground people can see the practical workability from our end versus the big-picture bottom-line stuff from where he’s sitting.”

Redditors Support

They also described an instance where their current manager was taking applications for an assistant director for their department.

The Reddit user was in charge of taking resumes from the applicants. One of them called and was very rude to the Reddit user, insisting on speaking with their director because they “don’t waste time with secretaries”.

The Reddit user told their manager about this interaction and the manager immediately ripped the application in half and dropped it in the trash. The Reddit user was ecstatic.

Another user said while this may be “revenge” it was justified.

Karma Wins Again

They wrote “Yeah this was more than just a little revenge for revenge’s sake. This is genuinely looking out for your coworkers through an honest, unembellished reference. The ‘petty revenge good feeling’ is actually the feeling of karma scales balancing, since we are karma, and you did – it’s balance work.”

Other Reddit users joked that OP should have referenced this ex-boss to their company’s competitors.
