A Contractor Was Denied Payment for A Machine Installation So He Cunningly Planned Sweet, Petty Revenge on The Uncooperative Client

A man recently told the story of how a customer pleaded with him to install a machine for him, which he did. However, after spending hours on the job, the customer refused to pay him. The man wasn’t happy about it, and here’s what he did to get even:

He Used to Work for a Special Company

This guy had a job at a company that provided specialized equipment used in manufacturing factories. While he was working in this field, he met a lot of people who needed these machines installed and serviced.

But he left that job to work somewhere else. One day, an old client called Jake, whom he used to help, called him. He wanted him to install a new machine and also wanted another unit for maintenance. He wanted to know if he was available.

He told Jake that he didn’t work there anymore but could pass him off to someone who was still working at the company. But Jake offered to pay him double his install rate if he could come over the weekend. He pleaded for him to consider his offer.

Plus, his former company had increased their rates. “He lets me know that the company has increased the rates for installation, and the company just can’t afford it. The instructions they sent over just aren’t clear enough, and their engineers are scratching their heads trying to figure it out,” he said. He finally agreed.

The Process of Installation

Installing this unit took several hours or even a whole day. Usually, the company offered two choices. You could pay for their engineer to install it, or they could send instructions for the customer’s engineers to install it. Also, if someone had started installing the equipment, the company wouldn’t help because they couldn’t be sure if anything got broken.

So he went there on the weekend, and they showed him the boxes of equipment. He started working and made good progress with putting in the machine. After about 6 hours, Jake came up to him and said hello. He told him he was almost done.

But the next thing Jake said threw him off balance. He said, “Sorry, but they just don’t have the budget to pay you.” At that point, he was beyond livid and frustrated after spending six hours on the installation.

He Got Back at Them

There was a button inside the machine that would make it stop working if he pressed it with a pin. He knew that the installation instructions didn’t say anything about this button. So there was no way to tell why the machine wasn’t working normally. So he pressed the button, packed his things, and left.

A few days later, Jake called him severally, but he refused to answer. Later he picked up, and Jake was angry and demanded him to help again. But he said no because he didn’t pay him before. Jake apologized, and he demanded $7000 before he could fix it. The money was paid, and he fixed the machine quickly, and it was working again.

People Responded

Another person wrote, “That’s Not even petty revenge. You hustled the hustler. Nice job, mate.”
