She’s Sidelined by a Devious Co-Worker Over Expensive Missing Merchandise, But Her Next Move to Uncover the Real Culprit Leaves the Company in Shock.

In a tale of deceit and corporate politics, the Original Poster (OP) navigates an intricate web of conflicts, starting as a valued employee at one company while facing betrayal from a second business. As the suspense rises to a climax, OP finds themselves in a power play with a chance to serve revenge cold, but how it plays out remains a thrilling mystery.

OP begins to work at Company A, appreciated and treated well by the company’s owner. After a failed attempt at securing a managerial position due to a lack of a business degree, OP decides to further their education at university. This decision introduces the first pivotal shift in the narrative as OP leaves Company A for educational pursuits, setting the stage for the subsequent conflict.

OP joins Company B, a retail store, to meet their financial needs while studying. The store boasts a much larger staff but suffers from a high turnover rate. The entry into Company B introduces OP to a new working environment within the retail world.

An Unexpected Promotion

OP spends seven years working at Company B while simultaneously obtaining their degree part-time; during that time, OP earns a promotion to Warehouse Supervisor. With the promotion comes a new hire, Kay, who plays a crucial role in the follow-up to the story. This advancement sets the stage for new conflicts.

The Brewing Storm

A new woman, ‘Mrs. Mean,’ is hired at Company B, and quickly climbs the ranks, and soon becomes the Sales Supervisor. She has a sour relationship with OP, sowing discord and amplifying tension within the company. The hiring of Mrs. Mean intensifies the conflict, signaling impending confrontation.

A Precious Arrival

A customer orders a very expensive ring set, a luxury item with immense value. OP follows established procedures to ensure its safety, but the final step involves Mrs. Mean, who asks OP to leave the box with the rings on her desk. When OP transfers the valuable asset per Mrs. Mean’s request, the seeds are planted for a major crisis.

The Missing Ring Set

Inevitably, the expensive ring set goes missing. Mrs. Mean claims that the box was empty when she received it, which leads to a meeting with the Manager and HR consultant. This event significantly escalates the conflict, with serious implications for OP’s position at the company.

Accusations and Termination

OP gets blamed for the missing ring set and is fired due to the loss, despite the lack of concrete evidence. With the security footage unavailable, the blame lands squarely on OP’s shoulders. This shocking twist marks OP’s dismissal from Company B.

The Shocking Revelation

In need of a job reference, OP contacts the owner of Company A, who reveals the upcoming vacancy of the manager position due to the current manager’s impending retirement. The owner offers OP the position, leading to their return to Company A. This twist represents a major turning point, and OP is happy to return to the once comfortable job.

OP accepts the manager position at Company A and begins working there, reuniting with the appreciative owner. The return offers OP a fresh start and puts them in a position of power, hinting at the impending justice.

The Missing Link

Company B is unable to find a replacement for the warehouse supervisor, leading to a backlog of unfulfilled orders. This issue strains their relationship with clients and vendors. Learning of the chaos at Company B offers OP a sense of satisfaction in their troubles.

Unveiling the Truth

OP is still friends with Kay, who updates her on the latest drama occurring at Company B. After OP is fired, Kay “befriends” Mrs. Mean to find out what really happened with the rings. After months of becoming social – getting drinks after work, bad-mouthing OP, and even socializing on the weekends, Mrs. Mean spills to Kay, “I wanted those rings, so I stole them.”

The Snitch

Kay reports the incident the following day to management at Company B. The company immediately calls the police, and within a week, Mrs. Mean is arrested and charged with theft of over $5,000.

OP receives a call from the prosecutor’s office shortly after, asking if she’s willing to testify about the incident. OP quickly obliges and feels vindicated that Mrs. Mean is finally being seen for who she is.

A Triumphant End

In the final chapter of this saga, OP successfully navigates their revenge, not only securing their own position but also leading to Mrs. Mean’s downfall. She considers if she should press charges herself for emotional damages and wrongful termination against Company B.

One reader said, “Hey, OP. Your buddy K deserves a steak dinner, a nice bottle of wine, yearly Christmas cards, and a debt of gratitude. They played the long game for your benefit. Loyal friends are worth their weight in. One of my favorite sayings goes something like, ‘Friends will help you move, REAL friends will help you move bodies.’”

A Third View On The Story

A different person states, “My old supervisor was proven to have stolen assets from an entertainment company whose client was the biggest overlord company in the history of entertainment, and he wasn’t even fired or slapped on the wrist. I find it hard to believe that someone would get arrested and imprisoned over some jewelry, but if that’s even close to the truth, then I wish I could dish out this level of justice.”
