Tell Us About The Pettiest Thing You've Ever Done To Get Even With A Boss, Co-Worker, Or Rude Customer

It doesn't pay to be petty, but wow does it feel good.

Has someone at work or something about your job ever pissed you off so much that you chose to get petty? I want to hear your story.

Perhaps your boss at your old marketing firm was taking all of the credit for your work, so you slipped several typos into a crucial presentation that you knew he wouldn't proofread.

On the other hand, maybe you're a contract worker, and your clients refused to pay you the agreed-upon amount. So, out of spite, you painted their walls a color that was a shade-off from the color they chose.

Perhaps you're a wedding photographer, and the groom treated you poorly when you asked for a break (and even gave you an ultimatum to leave without pay!), so you deleted all of the photos you'd taken and left.

Or, maybe you were suddenly let go from your IT job with no warning, so you took down the servers before you left the office. Then, they had to bring you back as a consultant to fix it.
