Everyone in your office is probably aware of the issues from either you or from him. Acting on something now will get you pinched for sure.

I would print out Tiny's advertisement and hand it to him. Let him know there are no hard feelings and move on. If he's any kind of human being, he will capitulate when he realizes that you really do own the mug because you are supplying him a lead to buy a new one.

If he still acts like a big "A" then put some syrup of Ipecac in his coffee six onths from now.... it's not easily traceable.

ahhh, MOz - I know you're right & agree
............but it's NO FUN

HkdOnJP i would have said just right your initials on his food/lunchbox and then eat it and since it has your initials its yours but since you dont want to ruin the relat with tech i say wait a week or so and then some exxlax or something to that effect....
12-06-2007 04:09 PM
rebelBullDawg325 i still like the idea of a new mug with dog crap made into it. he'll never know, but you'll get a good luagh every time you see him using it

YES YES!!! ...then I can put my deviant powers to work for good instead of evil!



BTW... tell Skeeter how proud for him I am.

amy I still can't get past the fact he thought it was ok to just take someone else's mug, "because it had his initials on it"! What else has he stolen, "because he liked it"?

Then, to say he should keep it because you didn't catch him for 3 months? I have no words for this...

The pre-schoolers I work with have a hard time understanding "if it's not yours, don't touch it." For an adult to have the same problem makes me think he never got beat up on the playground, as a kid.

If you retaliate in an obvious way, like supergluing all of his desk drawers closed or filling his cubical with packing peanuts, everyone will know someone is messing with him and you'll be a prime suspect. You need to figure out a way to mess with him that can't be proven to have happened.

02Prove WF: The Revenge Support Group!!!
12-06-2007 10:35 AM
Unlimited Thank you all for your support and ideas.

I never met Bill before yesterday; he sits on the other side of the building with the rest of the Tech people. I have to be careful because these people can impact my projects. I work for the county and things normally move very slowly here, I get my projects implemented faster because I'm on good terms with the tech people and they will pull strings for me on occasion. I don't want to do anything to jeopardize that relationship, so anything I do in the way of revenge must not be traceable back to me.

Strangely, Bill never asked what WF meant or why I had a mug with WF on it. The guy strikes me as being a total idiot, and now he’s assigned to one of my projects. Oh Joy!

For now, I'm enjoying drinking my coffee out of my WF mug. Order has been restored to my universe. I will spend the next several weeks plotting my revenge against Bill. He'll never see it coming.....
12-06-2007 09:32 AM
debruins haha , i say u give him tiny's email, and have him order one first, then once he gets it you can have a second WF mug for home for free!
12-06-2007 09:30 AM
Jase hopefully you didnt actually tell him it stood for wranglerforum did you? he might come here looking to get a spiffy mug with his initials on it and find this thread

I hate thieves.. so some sort of retaliation is warranted.. however it maybe shouldnt be discussed in public.
12-06-2007 09:05 AM
tiny terror Actually I was thinking if he wanted a coffee mug with his initails so bad I'd make him one with AH on it..... and then toss it through his windshield.

Say the word, Bri and I'll whip one up with a special message on it.
12-06-2007 03:28 AM
jjseel Oh dang! I hope I never piss myself off! Sorry WF, you should never repay violence with violence, total humiliation is the only way to go!
12-06-2007 03:26 AM
jjseel Hire Tiny as a consultant...BFG MT prints on his crushed Prius, Tiny knuckle prints on his Adam's apple! (Then force feed him the E-lax and coffee, leave him duct-taped to a chair in the board room)
12-05-2007 11:55 PM
crj101 OK here's what you should do, take his tie and stick it in his paper shredder with it still attached to his neck. or Just eat his lunch out of the fridge for the next three months.

maybe #1 discretion comes with age......
Hopefully one of them will kick in eventually...

This is one of those things you should just keep to yourself...

dis·cre·tion /dɪˈskrɛʃən/ –noun
1. the power or right to decide or act according to one's own judgment; freedom of judgment or choice: It is entirely within my discretion whether I will go or stay.
2. the quality of being discreet, esp. with reference to one's own actions or speech; prudence or decorum: Throwing all discretion to the winds, he blurted out the truth.

larphead go buy a bunch of cheap dollar store mugs and a bunch of super glue, wait until he takes a day off and cover his work area.

I'm as amazed as the rest of the group.......let it go for a while, cool down (cause I'd sure be hot if it were me), think it over, plot, plan then act !!!!!

.....revenge is a dish better served cold


I kinda liked the email bombardment idea with anything else you chose

02Prove They had a thing on Dirty Jobs about making flower pots out of poo... Call Mike Rowe and tell him you need a coffee mug with the initials WF on it!
12-05-2007 02:38 PM
rebelBullDawg325 wtf, i love how he thinks he should get to keep it because he stole it 3 months ago. i would have hit him in the face. i'm pissed off for you and this guy's ignorance. i just cant stand a-holes and he's obviously one. ex-lax would be cool. or get tiny to make you a new one with some dog crap mixed into the clay (or whatever its made of) and you give it to him for christmas.... he'll never know

I searched everywhere in the office for about a week and could not find it. I wrote it off to clumsy cleaning people and started using a generic mug for my morning coffee.

This morning, I had an 8:00am meeting with some of the operations / tech people. When I walked into the conference room, I was stunned! There, on the table, was my WF mug full of coffee. It was sitting in front of one of the new tech guys, he started working here about a week before the mug disappeared. I told him he was drinking from my coffee mug. He said that he had been using that mug since he started here, he saw it in the break room and since it had his initials on it (his name is Bill Franklin), he decided to keep it. We spent five minutes debating why he had to give it back versus him keeping it. I told him it was made for me by a friend and had great sentimental value. He said that he really liked it and since he had been using it for over three months, he should be able to keep it. I said a few choice words to him, but then our conversation was interrupted by the meeting starting.

At the end of the meeting, he finished off the coffee, slid the mug across the table, and said “Here ya’ go a$$hole, I don’t believe it’s yours, but I wouldn’t want you to start crying about it!” I just said thank you and took it to the break room to wash it.

So, now I have my WF mug back and I’m very happy. Today started off pretty crappy, but getting my mug back made my day. I’m sitting here trying to decide what I’m going to do to Bill for coveting my mug for the past three months. I’m thinking large amounts of ex-lax in his morning coffee or messing with the food he leaves in the refrigerator, but I’m open to suggestions. Thoughts?
Tire prints over the top of his car?
