So I run a hotel. I got alot of people under me and it takes a well oiled machine to keep it from getting complaints and losing money.
I have this one former employee who was by far our worst. Utter shit. Could not do the job well but most of all he costs us money by how he treats to customers. He will get loud and cuss them out. The straw that broke the camel's back was him telling a customer "its your toilet, you plunge it!" in front over everyone. I clearly hear it and I fire him on the spot.
He goes on a rampage cussing up a storm before he leave. He says "I got a new job anyways" as hes leaving. Well his new job is another hotel in another city and a better position then the one he had with us. Bad news for him is that the hotel is ran by a guy who has known me since diapers. Literally used to baby sit me when I was a baby. Family friend and all.
Well I get a call from him saying he interviewed our former employee and wanted to give me the professional heads up that he will be poaching him off our staff. Well I tell my friend the truth about him. Telling him how bad a worker he was. His response was "well, I'm tearing up his resume as we speak. Thanks for the honestly".
Would you have done that? I feel good about doing it but I know I should not. I'm a flawed person and I know that. I know I should not feel good about it and I'm working on it but it feels just so damn good to know a bad employee got what was coming to him. I just should not have been the one to bring about that Karma. I did help my friend dodge a bullet though.
