Nothing ruins a job faster than an unpleasant coworker. Whether they’re passive-aggressive and bring everyone down, or they’re like the man Reddit user Businessbittch had to deal with, who was just straight-up inappropriate.

Dealing with toxic coworkers can be exhausting, and in the long run, can potentially seriously damage your mental health. And like most stories when it comes to dealing with toxic people at work, dealing with them isn’t easy, and often leads to more frustration and things getting even worse.

One woman recently shared just that – how she finally decided to follow her own rules and deal with a coworker as strictly as she could, even if that meant going completely overboard.

One late-night text leads to an awkward work day 🤦‍♀️

She fought for justice and won! 💪

When one woman received some unsolicited and inappropriate texts from a married coworker, she decided to take action the next day. Rather than responding to the texts, she decided to send an email to her coworker holding him accountable.

Her coworker responded in anger but she remained undeterred and demanded that he only contact her for work-related matters. In order to ensure this, she sent a second email to HR with both of their emails attached. With the help of a friend, the woman was able to provide more evidence that could help her case.

Ultimately, her coworker was fired and the woman finally felt safe. She serves as an example of someone who was able to take a stand and not back down.

With that, let us explore the comments and reactions to this story.
