Enough Audacity To Make You Want To Pop!

, , , , | Working | October 26, 2021

I have a coworker who is, to put it mildly, a piece of work. Selfish, egocentric, abusive, petty, and cruel all spring to mind to describe [Toxic Coworker]. However, this story is the best example of what kind of person she is.

I buy large bags of popcorn as a thank you and bribe to my mentor. They are only $7, but I pay for these bags with my own money. He keeps them under his desk but will share if asked. Because [Toxic Coworker] steals entire bags if I get more than one, I typically get one bag at a time. This, again, is clearly under my mentor’s desk to mark it as HIS food.

One day, a half-full bag goes missing and he asks where it is. I don’t know and we conclude that [Toxic Coworker] took the bag. At this point, she has only taken full unopened bags or some popcorn and left the bag.

Coworker: “[Toxic Coworker] said she had popcorn upstairs.”

To recap, she took my mentor’s popcorn that I had paid for with MY own money and told another coworker SHE had popcorn upstairs. Right.
