Man Stunned by Fraud Allegation at Work, But a New Discovery Sets the Office Ablaze with Gossip.

In a tale of workplace confrontation, a top salesperson finds himself falsely accused of losing a key account by his insufferable manager during a performance review. The climax unfolds as he cleverly turns the tables, exposing the manager’s professional and personal transgressions, leading to an unexpected outcome.

The Discontented Team

In an underperforming sales team with a despised manager (Mrs. B), the salesman emerges as a top performer within the struggling group. The salesman exceeded his sales targets despite the team’s overall lackluster performance. The sales manager’s incompetence contributes to the team’s struggles, while her personal likability causes a complicated dynamic.

A Surprising Accusation

During the yearly performance review, Mrs. B accuses the salesman of misrepresenting his sales activities. The salesman’s shock is evident, as his sales record has been exceptional. The unexpected attack stuns everyone present, igniting the kindling of conflict.

Challenge Accepted

Upon hearing the accusations, the salesman confidently proposes a challenge to prove his innocence, using his work cell phone’s location services as evidence. Mrs. B hesitates but eventually agrees to pull up the data. The tension in the room is palpable as the game begins.

Proof in Hand

The salesman pulled up data on his phone and demonstrated that his location data matched the records in his customer relationship management tool (CRM) for the chosen day. This unexpected evidence discredits Mrs. B’s accusations, and the VP (original poster) is amused when learning that Mrs. B’s false accusation proved to be wrong.

The Lost Contract

The salesman takes advantage of his political momentum and brings up a lost contract with a significant value. He presents an email from the client stating their dissatisfaction with the company’s service. Mrs. B’s culpability in the loss is hinted at, turning the performance review into an investigation.

Incriminating Emails

The salesman reveals emails between him and Mrs. B, showing that she had failed to order necessary samples for the client. The VP requests these emails, and Mrs. B’s sweat-soaked panic is a stark contrast to the calm satisfaction of the salesman. The meeting has now taken on a new twist, with Mrs. B in the hot seat.

The Sales Manager’s Downfall

The salesman asks for a break and walks out of the room, leaving the OP (VP of division) intrigued and a visibly shaken Mrs. B. Outside, the salesman meets with Joe, another salesperson, hinting at further evidence against Mrs. B. Their smirking faces suggest a plot about to be revealed.

The Damning Texts

After returning to the conference room, the salesman and Joe present evidence of Mrs. B’s attempts to engage in a sexual relationship with Joe, a violation of company policy. The OP confirms the severe consequences of such an act. The room is charged with the anticipation of Mrs. B’s impending downfall.

A Cruel Exposure

Joe shares explicit texts from Mrs. B, and the OP requests screenshots as evidence. Mrs. B, realizing the gravity of the situation, leaves the room in tears. The revelation shakes the room, and the end of Mrs. B’s career seems imminent.

The Aftermath

Upon their return to the sales office, the salesman and Joe find Mrs. B’s office empty and learn she left crying. The office is buzzing with the news of the events that unfolded in the conference room.

The Verdict

The OP summons the salesman back into the conference room, announcing that Mrs. B has been placed on leave, effective immediately. The OP announces that the salesman’s performance review is reevaluated, and he receives stellar remarks due to his impressive sales record.

A New Opening

In the aftermath of Mrs. B’s exit, the salesman boldly asks the OP how to apply for the newly vacant sales manager position. The OP, amused by the salesman’s audacity, promises to notify the location manager.

An Unexpected End

Despite his efforts, the salesman doesn’t secure the sales manager’s promotion and quits soon after due to the company’s decision to hire an outside sales manager. This decision, along with the service department’s failures, pushes him to accept an offer from another company.
