What’s a dish that’s best served cold?

Yes, you guessed it! We’re talking about revenge.

This week, we hear from listeners who aren’t interested in forgiving and forgetting but want to get back at their perpetrators. Tune in to hear Mary and Chris’ advice about whether or not, revenge is a dish that should be served at all…

Here Not There in Zelienople is dealing with a revengeful colleague who is bitter that she got a better office space at the new HQ than he did. Now, this bitter colleague is making her life miserable. To make matters worse, our listener has a dotted line reporting structure to this person. The office space allocations were determined by the VP of HR who likes things the way they are. How can they respond to petty revenge tactics while still maintaining a professional relationship?

Tips On Lying in Louisville is a bartender at a neighborhood watering hole and has a regular customer who NEVER tips. It turns out another customer has a crush on the non-tipper. When the interested party expressed interest in the cheapskate, our listener told her that the guy has a drinking problem. They lied and now feel awful since knowing them both, they think the two would hit it off. Is there a way to fix this without looking like a s*%#?

Givers To Takers in Gurney works as a floor manager at a distribution center. He was up for a promotion and part of his plan was to have lunch with the boss and talk about ways they can improve the physical movement of inventory at the plant that would save both time and money. Interestingly, he didn’t get the promotion, but his boss eventually did. Guess what? Six months later his boss introduces the improvement plan as his idea. What a piece of work! How can he get even with his boss for not only robbing them of their promotion but stealing his idea?!
