Do you know why ISIS and Al Qaeda have not used small pox, nerve gas, or sarin in an attack on the USA yet? Because they are not as fast, painless, or sure as a car bomb….in killing the attacker. They are scared of how painful it would be for the terrorist to use those WMD’s.
Terrorists are smarter than people who are mad at their boss or a coworker. Workplace attitude poisons and diseases kill attackers more horribly and slowly than they kill their target. ISIS terrorist attackers want to die quickly and relatively painlessly so they won’t use poison and disease. People who are mad at their boss die slowly, painfully, and publicly from their own venom. Their boss rarely suffers. The terrorists are smarter than upset workers.
Malice sucks up the greater part of her own venom, and poisons herself. (de Montaigne)
Every day I talk to people with serious reasons to leave their jobs. Most briefly state the problems, then go on with their job search. They are winners. Some state the problem and then they try to poison and infect the people who contributed to the situation. They are losers. Examples of stupidity, gross unfairness, lawlessness and cheating are given, then repeated, then complained about. The trouble is that the attacker slowly poisons himself. His pain is horrible to behold.
What is left is a twisted wreck of a person who is unemployable.
So what do you do? Forgive. Forget. Get on with your life. The best revenge you can have is to be happy while they are miserable. Let them wallow in depravity. Don’t hop in the mud puddle to wrestle the pigs and expect to stay clean. Forgive them. Pen them up in a part of your life that is through. Don’t talk about them. Don’t even think about them. Stop letting them ruin your life.
If you are still employed, you can pay them back. Stop talking about them. Stop worrying and fretting. It will drive them nuts when they can’t seem to get to you. If something illegal is going on, quit now and tell the police. Otherwise stay there, find a new job, and then leave. They’ll hate having to replace you. Never say an unkind word about them to anyone, just find another job, give notice and leave. Then forget them. That is the ultimate revenge.
