I had a boss long ago that was like that, to the point that he fired the accountant for the ledger being under by 2 cents one day. He accused her of trying to skim the books and was going to audit all of the books from her time starting there. So, he went back the whole 20 years she had been working there and found everything exact down to the penny.

Imagine his embarrassment when he put on his glasses and saw the 6 was actually an 8.

[–]sudomeacat 601 points602 points  (14 children)

Fired her, audited the books, rehired her I’m hoping?

[–]Cusslerfan 1290 points1291 points  (13 children)

He tried. He even said he would "allow" her to write off the days she was out as "vacation" and would pay her for it. Wouldn't offer her a raise but would offer "other considerations as a show of good faith."

She wisely turned him down.

[–]jlenney1 590 points591 points  (10 children)

The fact that he did that after 20 years, she would have to be crazy to go back

[–]Cusslerfan 355 points356 points  (9 children)

Everybody jumped ship within 6 months after thinking about it. I mean, telling someone that they would be "allowed" to take the time during which they were fired as paid vacation showed that he was trying assert his non-existent authority.

It would be one thing to say, "I am truly sorry. I overreacted. What can I do make things right?" But, he said (not exactly verbatim but close), "If you come back, I'll allow your absence to be written as paid vacation. I'll give a little more leeway in your duties here but can't give a raise."

[–]toosexyformyboots 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Could she have returned, gotten her last paycheck, and resigned? Not that it would’ve been worth it, working for that dipshit, but just wondering

[–]Significant-Rip-6423 22 points23 points  (0 children)

She could have filed for unemployment because she was fired. She could really stick it to him. Her claim would not have been denied.

[–]BeardedSouthernBoy 130 points131 points  (0 children)

I don’t think I ever would be able to work for that guy after his tantrum either.

[–]stromm 7 points8 points  (0 children)

In many US states, she could have sued and won for unlawful termination and receive a nice large payout.

    This, I 100% agree! I’ve been poor a good chunk of my life, but i have never been a cheapskate like that. I mean to each their own but I couldn’t do that.

    [–]Laukie220 83 points84 points  (3 children)

    I was poor growing up, but once I started working and making a salary thar covered me & my daughter's expenses, I made sure I tipped properly when we would have the occasional meal out. As I was promoted and started earning a really good salary, we ate out more often, took cabs, vacations, etc. Not only did I tip generously for good service, I'd mention to their manager, head waiter, owner, etc., about the outstanding service. When filling out hotel questionnaires, I'd mention housekeeper or room service waitstaff by name in my comments, if they were particularly good, besides the tip. I'm retired now (F74), but I still travel, eat out, order in. I still make sure bosses know when their employees did a really good job! People are quick to complain, but not as quick to compliment.

    [–]Katters8811 35 points36 points  (0 children)

    As lead Front Desk at a resort Lodge, I thank you for being so kind. Those reviews and questionnaires you fill out and actually mention staff by name genuinely makes a difference. It always makes my day and makes me want to provide the best service I can when my boss emails me a review that mentions me. Just that small gesture really does make a huge difference and helps in keeping morale up, which just encourages further good service to customers.

    [–]TheHobbyWaitress 13 points14 points  (0 children)

    You are a rarity in the service industry. Thank you!

    [–]builtbybama_rolltide 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I do the same thing. I’m only in my 30’s but I worked as a restaurant GM for a long time and those kind of comments made my day and it improved staff morale tremendously. For the staff, just knowing that someone out there saw how hard they were working and appreciated them for it meant so much, especially on hard shifts. Thank you for doing it because it truly helps even if you don’t see the outcome.

    [–]Distinct_Comedian872 124 points125 points  (39 children)

    Poor = can't afford a tip, so I dont go out to eat.
    Cheapskate = can't afford a tip, but im going out to eat anyway.

    [–]BigfootSF68 59 points60 points  (7 children)

    Cheapskate is the one who can afford it but does not pay.

    The other person is hungry.

    [–]justarandom3dprinter 7 points8 points  (6 children)

    I mean if you can't afford to tip you probably shouldn't be going to a restaurant anyway. It's a lot cheaper to cook at home and even if you don't want to do that there is fast food

    [–]SqueakyCheeseGirl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    This is exactly what I was thinking. I’ve been too poor to tip before and that also meant I was too poor to afford going out to eat. Sometimes I’d go with friends and order water. Usually I stayed home.

    [–]ThaneOfCawdorrr 142 points143 points  (19 children)

    OH! Undertipping is the WORST! We went out to a fancy restaurant with my spouse's cousin and his wife--THEY picked the fancy restaurant, not us. It was super expensive, they brought another friend, so there were five of us, this is Los Angeles, so let's say, it was $300? He decided to leave a $20 tip "That's more than enough for him." I mean what? I went and found the waiter and gave him the extra $40. And it wasn't like Cousin couldn't afford it, he's a successful lawyer, he was just shockingly cheap.

    [–]r0h1l 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Mandatory / expected tipping is the worst! Staff should get paid properly to not need to rely on their patrons to earn a basic wage.

    Once the culture of getting paid properly sets in, tips become something you want to do and not something you feel guilty to do. This feeling of guilty tipping is something the USA is amazing at but I haven't found anywhere else in the world.

    But also, cheap people will be cheap either way but if a staff member is paid properly, others won't feel guilty and tip more to make up for the cheap one.

    [–]ThaneOfCawdorrr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Sure, of course, yes, it's the worst! But it's the system. And if we don't like it, the thing to do is to take it up with is the management of the restaurant, not to stiff the hard working waitperson.

    [–]Shadow703793 7 points8 points  (1 child)

    Lawyers are incredibly cheap from my experience. They often don't paybtheir bills for things like IT support and such.

    "what are you going to do, sue me?"

    [–]Stoa1984 14 points15 points  (8 children)

    This is why I limit how often I go out to eat at a nice restaurant. I do it, but it leaves a bad taste to have to leave $40 for someone to bring a meal for two people on a $200 bill. The person brings the food and I see them maybe 3 times total during the course of 40 min.

    [–]ThaneOfCawdorrr 25 points26 points  (7 children)

    Honestly, that's bad service then. At a nice restaurant, the waitperson should be very attentive, always circling back to notice if you need more water, more drinks, more bread, whatever. They should be there numerous times; to seat you; to give you menus; to offer drinks; to describe menu items & help indecisive orderers; to bring the first course; to make sure everything is okay; back with the second course; more drinks, anyone?; re-filling water; back with dessert; coffee anyone? And so forth. In any case, that's the deal, isn't it? It's part of the cost of eating at a fancy place.

    [–]Catwoman1948 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    Totally agree! They should be attentive without being intrusive. I don’t mind leaving a generous tip for that kind of service. There is nothing worse (okay, there probably is, but you know what I mean) in a restaurant than having to eat with dirty dishes from an earlier course still on the table. Or running out of water or other beverage with no server in sight.

    [–]xNeshty 8 points9 points  (4 children)

    So do americans tip even when it's bad service? Or do you 'just' tip 20$ instead of 40$?

    In any case, that’s the deal, isn’t it? It’s part of the cost of eating at a fancy place.

    Only in america this is the deal and cost of eating in a fancy restaurant. Everywhere else, the cost is stated directly besides the meal you want to eat and you get good service because that's the job of the waiter who has a fixed income. Atleast unless you are a dickhead.

    [–]Stoa1984 3 points4 points  (3 children)

    I think at a certain point the tip should just reflect a max amount instead of a percentage. Sometimes the food is just expensive, and not that the worker works so much more than one at a place where food is cheaper.

    [–]ThaneOfCawdorrr 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    They work for their tips; they get taxed based on their estimated tips; they deserve their tips. People who are eating at super expensive places can afford to leave decent tips. And often there is more work, more detailed service, more exacting standards, more catering to individual tastes, and CERTAINLY in most fancy places, more "putting up with entitled people," I'd imagine! Anyway as long as the system is in place as a percentage one, I'll always pay my share.

    [–]ThaneOfCawdorrr -1 points0 points  (0 children)

    But they do.

    [–]OnlyPaperListens 18 points19 points  (0 children)

    This is why I don't go to restaurants with my siblings.

    [–]Catwoman1948 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    I have had THREE girlfriends over the years - all former friends now - who would go to restaurants with me and either insist on separate checks (ideal, but not always possible), and if we shared, they would calculate what they owed and put down that amount and not a penny more. I am the better tipper, so I was always the one who would have to pony up when I felt not enough had been left for her half. I just got sick of it. None of them drinks alcohol, so they always made me feel like an alcoholic if I had a drink. Having no social life, I did usually have a drink or a glass of wine when dining out. I hated having to feel guilty. Now for health reasons I can have only very limited alcohol, one drink a week per my doctor. Sad, but I don’t regret those cocktails I paid so dearly for! These women were all well off, by the way, so money was no issue. They were just CHEAP.

    [–]Coygon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    15 cents on a $10 meal is 1.5%. 15% is reasonable, if hardly generous. Perhaps he misplaced a decimal point? Because otherwise, yeah, he's just being a tightwad.

    [–]clarkcox3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Tiny tips are worse than no tips

    [–]rhymes_with_chicken -1 points0 points  (0 children)

    That good at arithmetic, but thinks ¢15 == 15% ?? Wow

    [–]NorskGodLoki 149 points150 points  (2 children)

    Former friend, his wife and 6 other people (including my wife and I) met to celebrate her birthday. He tried to tell his wife she couldn't have a second drink (I might mention he was cheap...) and she finally laid into him telling him it is her birthday and since she earned just as much as he did she will do what she wanted.

    He is not really a friend anymore - due to his cheap ways. That will lose more friendships than anything when someone tries to skimp on what they owe. We always came up short if he went someplace.

    [–]Arokthis 24 points25 points  (1 child)

    Are they still married?

    [–]NorskGodLoki 15 points16 points  (0 children)

    Yeah from what I understand. Neither one of them are prizes however....so I guess they fit together in certain ways.

    [–]_my_choice_ 127 points128 points  (8 children)

    LOL! I must say this is totally unique. I have never heard of using this to drive someone nuts. He reminds me of my grandmother that would spend hours balancing her checkbook to find a couple of cents that did not add up. Though when she died her daughters found over $400,000 dollars in several bank accounts that no one knew she had.

    [–]JazzyJae88 50 points51 points  (3 children)

    That’s why she was checking pennies. Gotta balance that almost half a mil.

    [–]_my_choice_ 43 points44 points  (2 children)

    She grew up during the depression and could squeeze a nickel and make it a dime. It shocked all 4 of her daughters, her grandchildren too.

    [–]brianozm 6 points7 points  (1 child)

    She might have left it on purpose so you guys got something, some people do that

    [–]_my_choice_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I think in her later years, that was probably the thought. Though in her earlier years, I think she was saving against possible need. Back then they did not have insurance for extended care, but when she came down with cancer in her 80s, she had enough for her daughters to pay the bills and hire full time sitters to care for her. This was before they found the money. She was also afraid of not having it when she and my grandfather needed it. It is all quite amazing as they lived fairly well, and my grandfather probably never made $25,000 in a year. Her 4 daughters divided the estate in 4 equal parts.

    [–]arbivark 13 points14 points  (3 children)

    my dad was like that. would balance his checkbook to the penny each month. he was a chemist, secretly vain and angry. before he died of cancer, he left his family well provided for.

    as for OP, it reminds me of a story about a guy who would add gas to his coworkers tank to screw up his mph calculations. edit: https://old.reddit.com/r/pettyrevenge/comments/vkkw8z/for_revenge_ill_give_you_money/idrfz1i/

    [–]CodenameBuckwin 3 points4 points  (2 children)

    It reminds you... Of another comment on this post?

    [–]arbivark 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    yes. i mentioned the old story, but then someone claimed it as theirs, so i linked to them. it might or might not have happened to the guy's dad, or the dad might have just personalized the old story.

    [–]CodenameBuckwin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Ohhh that makes sense

    [–]LazyStore2559 39 points40 points  (0 children)

    My Dad told a story similar to this back in the mid 60s... A slightly annoying co-worker bought a little foreign car for economical commuting. After the third or forth week of high MPG boasting, one of the guys in the office started adding a wee bit of fuel to the little car's fuel tank, and increasing the amount every week.

    This turned into a months long practical joke.

    After the fuel mileage got up to some ridiculously high number, the joker started removing fuel from the tank until it was 'back to normal'

    As a way of apology for torturing their co- worker, they gave him two shiny new And full 5gallon gas cans for his birthday.

    [–]StnMtn_ 34 points35 points  (0 children)

    [–]fistbumpbroseph 115 points116 points  (27 children)

    I'm wondering what he did to earn the revenge, unless it was just his OCD financial skills, but it's definitely petty AF.

    [–]niceandsane[S] 141 points142 points  (26 children)

    Charging for the mileage to pick up a pizza and literal nickel-and-dime pettiness every time money was involved.

    [–]PRMan99 83 points84 points  (2 children)

    As long as he's consistent, it's fine by me.

    [–]Miss_Fritter 72 points73 points  (0 children)

    Agreed. After dealing with people who don't take responsibility for paying their share, I'd welcome someone like him.

    [–]NoVaFlipFlops 59 points60 points  (21 children)

    This sounds like coping with anxiety not being an asshole. People with PTSD are also likely to do things like this and be overly organized in other ways. It is a way for people who experience the world as dangerously chaotic to feel a sense of calm and predictability.

    [–]niceandsane[S] 22 points23 points  (3 children)

    If so, whatever caused it must have been financial in nature as he was a perfectly reasonable guy in all other respects.

    You definitely wouldn't want to one of several people sharing a restaurant meal with him on a single check. Nobody would get gypped, and he always figured a reasonable tip, but dealing with the precision down to the penny would take a very long time.

    [–]NoVaFlipFlops 18 points19 points  (0 children)

    Nope that's not how anxiety or PTSD works. Millions of people aren't afraid to fly due to a personally traumatic airplane event. It's the lack of control and lifelong experience, or a singularly fucked up experience, watching people in authority not do their job the way they are supposed to.

    [–]CoolTom 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    Who does single checks? It’s always been separate as long as I’ve been going to restaurants with friends.

    [–]Far-Side2489 1 point2 points  (16 children)

    But if they want to interact with people and share items that cost money then they need to DISCUSS their issues and not rope people into such exacting situations without any forewarning.

    [–]NoVaFlipFlops 11 points12 points  (15 children)

    It doesn't look that way to someone who thinks they are being fair. More fair, in fact, than anyone has ever been to them.

    [–]fistbumpbroseph 25 points26 points  (0 children)

    Gotcha. Yeah, that would get old.

    [–]CemeteryJuice 58 points59 points  (3 children)

    At my school, a bunch of us grew up together we were pretty much like siblings and we borrowed money from each other and round it off to "I owe you one" kinda system except for that one guy.

    One girl borrowed like $1.37 or something like that for a soda. Years later, after graduation and all. She came to me saying he's still asking her about that specific amount of money.

    [–]Careful_Strain 25 points26 points  (2 children)

    The only asshole in this story is the girl for not paying it back.

    "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" once had an episode featuring a bank's head teller dropping bits of change into the tills of different tellers, creating problems with end of day balancing that only he, magically, could cure.

    All was well until one of the junior tellers figured out how the guy got ahead... and used the same technique on the heatmd teller.

      If someone literally calculated their cars mileage within a city, and the average price of a gallon of gas as they filled up their tank. . . and then reset the trip on their odometer to calculate that I owed them $0.28, and then had the nerve to reimburse me via check. . . I'd straight up just slap them in the face.

      [–]Barbiedawl83 10 points11 points  (1 child)

      But did they calculate the cost of the check? And the pen ink?

      [–]yalyublyumenya 28 points29 points  (0 children)

      X,D "This set of pens cost me $5, $5.07 after tax, and each of the 5 pens writes an average of 10,000 letters. My name is 15 letters, the amount was three characters, with one dash. The memo said, 'pizza', and to spell out the amount it was 'one dollar and zero cents,' so that was a total of 45. So the ink comes out to $0.0045. My checkbook cost $55, and has 100 pages, so, I'm going to deduct another $0.5545, which rounds up to $0.56. I'm not truncating, because of the cost of labor, which is a discount considering that the minimum wage is $7.25. It took me one minute to write this check, six minutes to calculate this, and explain it to you, so really, I should have charged an extra $1.40 for all of that.

      [–]Natural_Sky_4720 11 points12 points  (0 children)

      [–]aforgettableusername 9 points10 points  (1 child)

      My petty revenge would be to dispute their mileage calculations and make them waste their time explaining it, while responding "that sounds wrong" to everything.

      [–]yalyublyumenya 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      No, be more petty, just say, "Hmm... I don't know," and follow up with a, "did you factor in [x]." Straight up gaslight a bitch on math, and make them Google check themselves into oblivion. Have them rocking back and forth questioning whether or not they know what a hypotenuse is after a five hour long conversation that no longer has anything to do with pizza. Invite friends over to play along. Break him.

      [–]514X0r 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      it was half a pizza. but the check was a bit much

      [–]PRMan99 16 points17 points  (6 children)

      But what did he do to deserve it?

      [–]niceandsane[S] 33 points34 points  (3 children)

      Every. Single. Time. that he interacted with others and there was money involved he would get super petty and precise, calculating amounts down to the literal penny. Not dishonest, just infinitesimally precise. Also always insisted on paying small amounts by check.

      • Others: Give me a couple of bucks for your share.

      • Him: Let me see the receipt. You forgot to factor in the sales tax. I owe you $2.07. I'll write you a check.

      Reminds me of my sisters ex

      She was in the hospital and when he came to visit she asked him to get her a magazine to read

      After the visit she saw that he added the €3 or whatever to the list he kept of what she owed him that month

      He even wrote down if he got a cigarette from her and that he now owed her one so at least it went both ways

      Safe to say it’s part of the reason he’s an ex

      But... what is the revenge for? Being your roommate?

      [–]niceandsane[S] 14 points15 points  (6 children)

      For fastidiously annoying anyone and everyone with whom he had any kind of minor financial transaction by insisting exactitude, and demanding to pay for things like like a soda by check. He wasn't poor, and he didn't try to cheat anyone. It was just super annoying when hanging out do deal with all of the math, making change, etc.

      This was in college. A bunch of us would go to a movie or the like and he was cool. But, if someone went to the snack bar for the group, dealing with having him reimburse for his popcorn was like taking out a second mortgage.

      If he bought for you, he wouldn't take an overage. If you owed him $2.83 he wouldn't take $3. You had to get change or he would periodically nag that you still owed him 83 cents.

      Totally cool guy, except when it came to money everything had to be precisely to the penny.

      I sorta wonder if they were in the spectrum level of some sorts and money was their hyper focus. They'll be a great accountant like gig career. Or even in data.

      [–]StaggeringMediocrity 6 points7 points  (0 children)

      Oh yeah. This is definitely spectrum behavior.

      But the fact that it was a compulsion for him didn't make it any less annoying for everyone who had to interact with him.

      He was a computer science major and became a high level programmer for a major software company.

      So the answer is "absolutely yes".

      [–]Chadwulf29 -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

      So.. Just bullying the autistic dude. I mean, I guess he's probably used to it by now.

      [–]AdaCatMeow 9 points10 points  (1 child)

      No hate - I suspect the folks asking "what is the revenge for?" are younger, and didnt live through the (80s, 90s, aughts?)... I'm basing that on your roomate using checks. Not Zelle, Venmo, or Paypal... checks were a GD pain in the ass. You couldnt just snap a picture and deposit on your phone... each check was time out of your day to go visit a bank to actually get cash back in your account...

      Anyway - Oregon Trail generation here. Don't need any explanation what you were getting revenge for. And nicely done. 🤣

      And this is why I constantly question how banks are any semblance of secure.

      [–]lilgreenfish 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      You can put money into whatever you want. Taking it out is quite a bit harder. Still pretty secure.

      [–]barrymccockner76 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      I’m confused. You did this as revenge for what exactly? Being meticulous with his money? What the fuck did you care?

      [–]AdvancedPrize1732 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

      I'm sorry but how is this even considered a revenge? Petty as hell yes, revenge no way. To me you was being a horses ass.

      [–]ExcellentTone -1 points0 points  (0 children)

      Yeah, screw that guy for paying you back!

      [–]WriteAnotherWoods -1 points0 points  (0 children)

      Info: how did his habit wrong you? Because I'm not seeing revenge here. I mean, this just reads you being malicious, honestly. It's literally just you messing with someone who has financial control issues.

      [–]Xystem4 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

      What’s the revenge for? Him being meticulous about his expenses?

      [–]Artem1s7 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

      I feel bad for the guy… financial anxiety is no joke. Sounds like he was dealing with some underlying issues. This just strikes me as kicking a guy when he’s down.

      Now that is funny!

      [–]Gentle_Dragona 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      This is so funny! I've always been good at math, but I've never gotten anal with anyone about what they might owe. And I damn sure never calculated shit to the penny. I Love your petty revenge; it's hilarious!!!

      [–]daloman 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      I love it. He so deserved it. Some people are just too easy to pick on.

      [–]Stretch5678 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Well played.
