After getting fired, this guy’s story ends in the best possible way.

Imgur user TotallyNota30YearOldWhiteDude got a lot of love on the social media platform for getting the best revenge on an employer who screwed him over.

Over a year ago, he took a job at as the director of web development for a small agency that had “horrible turnover” and a “toxic environment.”

The company worked him 60-plus hours a week, leading him to be hospitalized for exhaustion.


Six months later, he planned a much needed week-long vacation to destress from his job take time to focus on his ADHD, sensory processing disorder, and depression.

His vacation was in a place with zero connectivity, so he diligently prepared his team for his absence and everything went off without a hitch.

But management confused his amazing preparation with “we don’t need him,” and he was fired three days after returning from vacation.

After being fired, many of his former coworkers left the company as well, and he began working as a contractor to provide for his special needs child.

Things quickly fell apart at the old company, so the president called him to ask if he’d like to do some contract work. “I give them my rates, marked up by a good chunk because, well, they need me and not the other way around. They agree,” the Imgur user said.

Like a true IT guy, he celebrated his victory over the man with a series of Socially Awkward Penguin memes.
