Despite finding it difficult to fathom, I am fully aware that coworkers have the tendency to try throwing you under the bus, and you can either sit there and take it, or hatch a clever plan to dodge their attempts. But sometimes, the bad guy wins… we aren’t exactly living in a corporate fairy tale. Before we get into u/TroaAxaltion’s story of petty revenge that actually ended them up being fired, you can check out their first original post for some extra context, here.
OP was working in the contracting department for a medical equipment company. There he had a coworker we’ll call Hank, who was an account manager. Hank was caught not doing his job, got in trouble, then tried to throw OP under the bus and pin his incompetence on him. But, tough luck, as OP had kept the receipts and proved that Hank was the real problem. Now, all that was good and dandy, but as it turns out, Hank wasn’t the only problematic employee at the company.
Enter Mary, a conniving sort of person, to say the least. She teamed up with Hank, who already disliked OP for dodging his attempt to get him fired. Unfortunately, this time around, they were both successful. Scroll down to read exactly how OP was once again, thrown under the bus. For more, here is another OP who got fired after refusing a promotion.
