The Password is ‘Petty’: Employee Exacts Sweet Revenge on Former Boss
Reddit User Recounts a Controversial Act of Retaliation After Quitting Job
A Reddit user recently recounted an unconventional tale of workplace revenge on the platform, acknowledging the immaturity of her actions. The story revolves around her decision to take "petty" revenge on her former manager after leaving her job, a narrative that has sparked a debate and diverse reactions from the online community.
The woman detailed her act of changing her manager's email password, which has crucial information like menu and customer details of the restaurant where she was working previously. The revelation, with mixed reactions of supporters and opponents labeling the act as "childish," prompted a lively debate among readers.
This post on Reddit gained traction and was subsequently shared on the platform's official Instagram page. Reddit's caption, "Good for her," accompanied a selection of screenshots from the original post shared by the woman on Reddit.
In her narrative, the woman expressed her awareness of the immaturity and pettiness of her actions, stating, "I don't even care that this was immature and petty of me. I can't stress how awfully I was treated in this job, and how the entire team joined in on it. I was the only woman on the team, so it could've been that, but I don't want to play the gender card,” she wrote in the post .
“A week after I quit my job, I realised I was still logged into my manager's account, and he hadn't changed the password. This account was basically the restaurant's entire database. It had information for menus, staff, ordering, stock etc. I decided to change the email to a fake one I'd made, and then I changed everyone's password so they couldn't access it,” she further added.
