So he should key her car, and prove that he really is just a stupid kid who is below her? He should just behave in a way that justifies her treating her employees like poorly behaved children? Because that will accomplish anything besides creating a cycle of everyone hating their jobs?
The rewards from being a grown ass man of character and integrity outweigh the rewards of vengeance spawned in a bitch-made fashion.
its up to him, he knows the consequences. she'll still be a bitch and the end result will be the same, its just whether he wants to take this risk. and people who work hard and have integrity don't always get rewarded even though they should. they often get walked on and taken advantage of, used by people without morals or empathy. thats the majority of our CEOs and politicians. society is just one big conflict
It's up to him but regardless you're giving him shitty advice. The rewards of being a person of integrity and good character are not expected to be the type of rewards that are quantifiable or material. It's a more personal thing than that. I'm not telling OP you should do the right thing, and everyone will thank you and your manager will suck you off for it, I'm saying do it because acting like a man and a person of character is a good thing to do, especially compared to a pussy ass childish alternative. The truth is clear in this situation, and anyone who doesn't recognize it now will eventually, believe that.
Sure there are people up top who have the power and the loot who treat people horribly and take advantage of good people. Those people are either sociopaths or get stuck in a frustrating empty lifestyle wondering why their demons worsen despite as their money and power increase. It seems like they are meeting their goals but they feel empty. Mind you, I am not advocating OP let anyone walk all over him, im actually advocating he take the path that is NOT cowardly and pussy as fuck. Bad shit happens to good people and bad people, id rather be a good person who bad shit happens too than a bad person who more bad shit happens too. The person of integrity and character over comes the bad shit, the shitty person just lets the shit pile on, cuz fuck it, why not.
