    The plan itself doesnít mean so much to me, it was fine not brilliant. What got crushed is my ego. By that I mean that she dared to take professional advantage of me and obviously thinks she can. This idea of her may now be confirmed because I until now havenít spoken up (she knows that I know about this).

    Now I plan to totally screw her (havenít descided exactly how yet ). Or should I just confront her? I do not feel like that at all, but we will have to remain working together.

    What would you do? Screw her or confront her????
    Tell whoever she brought the plan to. At the very least, it will probably cast her into doubt. The person who she lied to might know who's lying and who isn't, and also the style of the plan might tip them off that you're not just saying it... if you say it matter-of-factly, it probably won't come off as whiny. Also, it will tip your boss or whoever off, and they might pay more attention to her trying to find out who's right.

    Plan B would be to kill her in the middle of the night w/o leaving any evidence behind... people won't f*ck with you after that if you smile evil-like whenever she or her absence are mentioned.

    Honestly though, trying to screw her back will make you look whiny and underhanded.

    After all you don't want to have misunderstandings and bad emotions mixed in the workplace, you need to have all the facts before you act. But then, if she was a bitch to you just go ahead and screw her... Because you can.
    I can't see how it could have been unintentionally. So took my name out of the 'footnote' and put hers in big kapitals at the top.

    Not to mention that she'll know that you can stand for yourself and it probably won't ever happen again. You'll have your revenge too, since she probably thought she totally got away with it already.

    That's all. Peace out. Extraverted Feeling in action.
    This is why I just won't let it go. I want her to know that I won't take it. I want others to know too.

    I wille be aware. Good advise!

    Plotting it doesn't feel good to me at all, I feel somewhat embarressed about it, 'cause somehow I feel I should be bigger then this (a conflict of moral) . 'Revange' feels good for a while right after you got it...

Not only this, it opens her up to the knowledge that you are a threat, and thus she'll be more likely to act to counteract that threat, through various office politics bullshit.
    Maybe this is the reason why she did it in the first place: she considers me a threat. I am not, or at least I wasn't.
    She has been investing in building relations with co-workers and mine relations with them are stronger, also with some people we started to build relations with simontaniously (this spelling looks odd...) and we both greatly respect. I Never felt it to be a competition though.

At the very least, she won't be pulling anything as blatant as taking credit for someone else's work.
    I wanna do something this effective without crossing my own moral pricipals. I need to feel she dug her own grave.

At least now you know that you can't trust her and can make sure you leave a paper-trail with your work.

    Thanks for all of your advise. After chewing on the matter I just know I won't let it go. . I will probbably take my time to subtlely undermine her.:rolli:
    I have already figured out my first move and will improvise from there on.

    Thought this thread had to do with actual screwing.
