Revenge Is A Dish Best Delivered By The CEO

| Working | December 5, 2016

(I sit through a long and boring “vision” meeting where various executives explain that because our company has “an organizational budget shortfall,” we are facing cuts in staffing and benefits. At the same time, we are spending untold thousands of dollars on a rebranding initiative. I manage not to make any comments that would get me fired, but I am seething. Then I find a way to calm my nerves and get revenge. After the meeting ends, I approach the boss.)

Me: “[CEO], can I ask a favor?”

CEO: “Um, sure, what can I do for you?”

Me: “I normally send an overnight package to [Coworker] in the central office every week. But since there are a lot of people here today who will be back at the central office tomorrow, it seems like a poor use of our resources to have UPS deliver it. Could you give this to [Coworker] when you get there tomorrow?

CEO: “Um, okay.”

(I may have lost my health plan, but the CEO is my errand boy!)
