I wouldn't stoop to that level. Getting even is a fiction. The avarice in your heart does you more harm than you can ever inflict on the other person.

Well if they were treating employees unfairly like not paying what they owe or something like that, I'd definitely report them and do something about it unlike some people who whine and do nothing. Few things annoy me more than people who choose to be weak and allow themselves to be abused by horrible employers. But I wouldn't do anything stupid or immature.

When I was at a hospital as a traveler I had a boss who was a total bitch to me. I knew that I was only there temporarily. She had told me that I was going to work when she told me to work because I was a premium employee. So I figured the best way to fuck her was to go way beyond her expectations and make myself so valuable that when I left she felt it.

I would pick up lots of over times, I helped each one of my co workers, so much so that it was sickening. and then I left!!

I have nurses and other staff in that emergency department calling me for months wanting me to return. I told them no fucking way after the way she treated me.

This did give me quite a bit of satisfaction!!!!

I've never "gotten back" at a place where I have worked. I don't see the point. I agree with Gunsmoke that avarice and meanness aren't good qualities.

When I was between jobs, had two small children and couldn't take long nursing shifts I worked at a place that had an account with a restaurant, which we would feed to hospital higher ups during meetings etc. Orders would be put in and I would pick them up at the restaurant. I was treated badly because, (she admitted it) I had more education than the supervisor. I could have put in a huge order at the restaurant, picked it up and had a party. In fact, some of my co-workers urged me to. I refused, as I felt, even though the company had treated me poorly (cancelling shifts at the last minute, constantly harping on the fact that I was a "college girl" treating me like absolute shit) I refused to compromise my own ethics just for a few minutes of "revenge."

I walked away with my dignity in tact. (I finally quit, because my shifts were constantly being cancelled) and never regretted NOT doing something wrong and possibly illegal. They were so disorganized in this department that the act probably would have gone unnoticed, but I'm not the type of person who does wrong things "because nobody is watching."

Very well said, I wish that I had that strength and character at that time in my life.

My mindset was push me and I am going to push back by the means I have available. I had reported my boss for theft and embezzlement which fell on deaf ears with the higher ups. Retaliation ensued. My boss let me know that he was going to make my job so miserable that I would quit and he was right. I was fortunate enough to be in a position where I could leave and that is what I chose to do.

Not everyone working for him was that lucky. So before leaving, I keyed raises across the board for all the hourly employees under me.
