Jerks at work - February 18, 2015, 01:07 PM

Have a co-worker that every time he passed by my cubicle, he would knock over the markers from the board in my cubicle, or the name tag that hangs outside of my cubicle, or my coat off the hanger. Silly things to be honest, the thing is, this co-worker never bother to pick up the things that he was knocking down, it was always a joke (went on for months); so me trying to not get some sand in my vajayjay, I picture his doings as jokes, and started plotting my joke on him.

Christmas time comes around, co-worker is on a 1 week vacation, so it’s the perfect time to work on my joke. I ended up rearranging his keyboard, mouse, speakers, and phone, and glue them down to his desk with hot glue (which comes off super easy), changed his monitor settings, and then changed the language for the monitor's menu.

Co-worker comes back from vacation, and I am eager to see his reaction. To be honest, I thought he would laugh, just like he laughed as walked down the hall, after knocking something down in my cubicle. WRONG! Co-worker is super pissed, stops talking to me, and finally after 3 weeks, confronts me, and tells me that I vandalized his cubicle, that we are not cool anymore, and that I made my point.

Soooo, seems like I managed to be biggest asshole in this game. Don't really see it that way, but I guess I should look for outsiders opinion. Not just that, but how do you guys/gals handle situations like this at work?

He is the asshole....if you cant play the game, then get off the field.
Nothing say you have to limit your revenge....

I say fuck it...at least you will not have to deal with his pranks anymore.

Don't sweat it. Sounds like the "dish it out but can't take it kind", just a penny ante bully. Though he could be just the type to start a poison whisper campaign.

Good for you! I hate assholes like this.

Im am one to play ALOT of jokes on friends etc. But I also receive them well. I honestly enjoy it, its fun to see what others can come up with to get back at me. As long as there is no malicious intent, just laugh and have a good time.

Sometimes things to get too far, but Ive been able to step up and confront a friend and or co worker politely and let them know.. Hey I know we joke around etc etc but this one was too far, cut that shit. Done move on.

Ive had others come up and say the same to me, and we understand the boundaries there!

Eff him! lol

You spoiled his fun cause now he's worried what you might do next.

He's not cool with you now? Tell'em to grow the F up.

I'm an easy going guy but my work space is my mini kingdom and it shall not be screwed with by others. I left my camera at work on day and a few co-workers on the next shift had fun taking silly pictures of themselves with it. (no porno, lol). I kept the pics figuring I'd find a use for them. Christmas time came and I used that silly elf dancing vid that was going around that let you paste peoples faces onto the characters to make a vid of dancing elves with the culprits faces. When I got home from my shift I remoted into a work PC running one of our huge wall mounted status screens and ran the vid on the big screen for the entire shift to see, including the supervisor and an upper level manager. They all had a good laugh at the expense of the culprits. My motto: "Don't start none won't be none." Hahaha.

There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.

Fuck him. YOU WON!

I don't prank, and I don't like pranks being pulled on me. That being said, I am fine with just about anything that isn't destructive and doesn't waste a lot of my time.

Nothing you did was destructive, and honestly, it sounds like it would take about 5 minutes to fix. No problemo in my book. That guy just sounds like he has no empathy. Anything done to him is a gross personal affront, whereas what he does to others is harmless and "doesn't hurt anyone." He is the only one that can be a victim.

I'd say consider yourself lucky - he only displays mild sociopathy. He could be full on sociopath and just drive through the building one day - you know...as a prank.

To me this is kind of like the saying, "If you lend a friend money and never see him again it was probably worth it." That is to say, you weren't friends in the first place and this makes it clear. Now you don't have to pretend to be cool with his crap.

LOL! I guess we (dcsportbikes peeps) are all in the same page. We talk, but shit is not the same, he sees me like I took it to far, and I see him as a cry baby; eff him, don't need/want people like that around me. I am like some of you, I don't start shit, cause I don't want any shit. I don't prank, because I don't like to be pranked.

But still, I can't help to think that I am the biggest asshole (when provoked). The incident from above happened right after Christmas, what pushed me to ask about this was because of the following incident that happened today...

A co-worker is retiring, there is a "happy retirement" card been passed around, you know, you sign the card, and pass it to another co-worker, and so on. So, I get the card from co-worker A, I sign the card and as I am ready to look for another co-worker that needs to sign the card; co-worker B passes by my cubicle, I asked him if he signed the card, he said no, so I handed the card over expecting him to take the card with him, do his thing, and pass it on to the next co-worker like we normally do.

Co-worker B wants to be smart, and signs the card in my cubicle, leaves it in my cubicle, and says you are it as he walks out with a smirk in his face. Petty shit, I know, but it drives me crazy.

What I am to do? Ohh, I know, use a sharpie to cover his wishes, and pass the card to the next co-worker that wants to sign the card.

Maybe is not that I am an asshole, but something must be wrong with me lol
