So there was this incompetent boss at a former company (the one with all those sneaky snakes). Not my manager but someone above my manager. He was fired from my former company last year.
He is totally incompetent but somehow found another job in 2 months that was a big promotion from his last position. But he went to a small startup. The only thing this guy "B" can do is BS. He can't do anything else. Well, startups are very transparent and everybody knows what everybody else is doing so "B" couldn't work his charade by BS'ing anymore.
He got canned, in a record 9 months. And he's panicking because he can't hold a job for more than 2 years anywhere.
Now, there are incompetent people but this guy isn't just incompetent but an a**hole. He is only concerned about himself. He will backstab you if he thinks it will help him keep his job. He won't stick his neck out for any of his subordinates unless he thinks it will curry favor with his superiors. He sucks up to his superiors as best as he can and ignores anyone he thinks can't help him professionally. Just a snake. He screwed me over
So someone I know calls me and asks "Hey, did you know 'B' when you worked at 'so-and-so'"?
"Of course," I replied. Then gave him a straight picture of how incompetent and how much of an a**hole he was. I gave numerous examples of his behavior.
Looks like my colleague's company was about to set up an interview with him. But after hearing feedback from me, they cancelled it. And I don't think "B" will ever find out.
Sometimes revenge is sweet.
