A MAN plotted sweet revenge on his former boss for sacking him before Christmas by sabotaging his attempts to replace him.
The automotive technician told of how he was able to get his own back on an abusive employer after exposing some serious wage discrepancies.

In a thread on Reddit’s Petty Revenge, the unnamed man explained how he spent years working under a cruel owner whose tactics included “verbally berated me in front of the rest of staff”.
Then one day, right before Christmas, he was suddenly laid off, along with another colleague after the owner claimed they were stopping that side of the business they worked on.
“We were shocked, especially with how nonchalant an arrogant he was about it. He told us to pack out things and he’d have our final checks to us by the end of the week,” he wrote.
However, after returning to work to pick up his tools he found out that his boss had simply laid them off to be replaced by a single employee on a lower wage.
The man then gleefully recounted how he plotted his revenge.
“I stewed over it the entire time I was loading my stuff. Surprisingly, the new guy came over to see what I was doing. We talked about the job and the installs. Then, an idea popped into my head,” he said.
After asking his replacement what his wages were, he discovered that he was making much less per hour.
“When I found out, I made sure to let him know, and told him personally, he’d be insane to do the job for what he’d been hired at.”
He continued: “A few minutes later, as I was strapping down my tool box, he came walking out, got in a car, and left.”
The owner was reportedly furious and screamed at his former employee for making the newbie quit on his first day.
“I just laughed, said gee, I guess my work here is done, got in my truck and drove away.”
In a satisfying end to the saga, the man discovered it took his boss almost six months to find a replacement.
Redditors loved the revenge story, and one said: “Your employer was a slimeball and a scumbag, good for you for getting instant revenge.”
Another quipped: “Virtuous Revenge. Great name for a band!”
A third wrote: “You didn’t sabotage your replacement, you helped him avoid a j****ss. That was an act of virtuous revenge.”
Meanwhile, another employee was left furious with their boss for advertising her job for over £75,000 what she gets paid.
Kimberley Nguyhen wasn’t going to let that slip, and instead planned her revenge by applying for the vacancy and posting about it internally.
The 25-year-old copywriter went viral on Twitter after shaming her employers and later quit her job.
Online users rushed to praise her actions, calling it a “boss move”.
