His Lazy Ex Co-Worker Got Jealous of His Pay Raise so Left the Company and Is Now Badmouthing Him on Social Media

A man recently asked if he was to blame for an ex-colleague quitting his job after finding out that the man got a huge raise. Here’s what he had to say.

Almost a year ago, the man’s hardworking coworker left the company. 

The coworker, despite being diligent, often struggled to communicate with his bosses about the technical aspects of his work, partly due to a language barrier. 

“If you need some rank-and-file tasks, he is your guy,” he said.

When the man joined the company with a higher salary and a better understanding of its inner workings, the coworker began handing over their difficult tasks, which the man quickly completed.

However, this made the coworker resent the man’s higher salary and ability.

“He started complaining because of my higher salary and would get mad if I finished the job quickly and submitted it directly to our manager, which got me annoyed,” he said.

One day, the coworker complained about having no electricity in his apartment because of an earthquake. 

The man jokingly suggested, “Then take one of the emergency lights in our office.” 

The coworker took his suggestion seriously and kept the light even after the power was restored.

When employees from another department noticed the missing light, the man stopped them from escalating the issue by promising to handle it himself. 

After discussing it with his manager, the man casually asked the coworker to return the light, which they eventually did.

Later, the coworker took an office chair that would be sold.

“His reasoning was that it takes too long for the management to decide when to sell that off but will pay for it when the time comes,” the man explained.

Once again, employees from another department noticed the missing chair, and the man attempted to handle the situation himself. 

However, this time, the other department’s employees grew impatient and reported the issue to their manager, who informed the General Manager.

The GM was furious and wanted to fire the coworker immediately, but the man’s manager convinced the GM to let the coworker stay because the coworker was efficient and an asset to the company. 

The GM agreed, as long as the chair was returned, which the coworker did after speaking with their manager.

Everyone got a raise

“A month passed, and our annual salary adjustment came. He found out that I got a higher raise than him, like 800% more than he got, so he decided to leave the company,” the man said.

In the months since his coworker’s resignation, the coworker has expressed resentment towards the man on social media.

“He still posts about it on his Facebook and comments on some of our coworker’s posts on how he still hates me,” he said.

He asked the internet for advice

Unsure whether he should feel guilty about his coworker quitting, the man turned to Reddit for advice.

People Responded

One user said, “His hatred of you is his fault. He steals from the company and gets caught. You get a higher raise. That is not surprising considering his past actions. Then he gets so jealous he quits. That’s on him.”

“You stuck your neck out there on multiple occasions, and he kept his job. You got the raise, and maybe he would’ve got more if he didn’t steal from the workplace.”
