A little competition at work is healthy. But some employees take this way too far, becoming power-hungry or egomaniacal in ways that can spoil the atmosphere of an entire workplace. If you find yourself dealing with this kind of toxic co-worker or boss, you will find these stories of workplace redemption especially satisfying. You may even be inspired to take the power back yourself.
1.) From Artifex75:
Our assistant manager has changed the schedule several times without notice, then happily tries to get us written up for being late, not showing up. I religiously document the schedule by photographing the screen, since we can't access it at home. After having to come in to HR twice on my day off to prove the schedule had changed, I began writing her up for every single time change without notification. She is let off the hook because I'm just a peon, but she still had to walk to HR to dispute them. A few other people started doing the same. When she had to answer for five instances of it in a week, she was reassigned back to floor nursing on another unit.
