    Backstory:
    About a week ago, one of the managers in the office that I work at, left a voicemail on my phone that he wanted to talk to me about something. I had no idea why HE wanted to talk to me. My supervisor was gone, as was her's. This manager that wanted to talk to me is not even from our department. He manages a whole separate area. He left the voicemail just before he went to lunch, and when he got back from his lunch is actually when I would be going on mine (I go at 1pm instead of 12). But I was so freaked out because I could not figure out why HE wanted to talk to me, so I just waited for him instead of going to lunch. You know the feeling of "What did I do??!!". So I sat there for about an hour, freaking out, and I had no one to really ask, because half the office was gone to lunch or meetings, etc. He finally got back at 1:30, and I asked him what he wanted to see me about. He basically told me someone in PIP/Medpay was questioning why I had my personal laptop at work and if I am playing with it instead of doing my work.

    So I said "What??!! You brought me in here for THAT? You can't be serious."

    He said that someone raised the issue, and he had no choice but to follow up. I told him that I bring it in ALL THE TIME, and use it to play CD's with my headphones plugged into it, and games at lunch on bad weather days. My supervisor has never had an issue with it, so why the big deal now? If someone in another department is worrying about crap like that, they need more work to do.

    He said he could not tell me who it was that was being nitpicky, and there are like 30 people in the PIP/Medpay that this 'concerned person' is in. Up until 2 days ago, I was still trying to find out (carefully) who it was and confront them-i can't work in a place with someone like that, and not confront them.

    2 days ago, my supervisor (Marcy) told us she has been promoted. She will still be our direct contact, but she will be taking on 6 other people and her title would be manager. Those 6 are in PIP/medpay-the same as the "overly concerned person" or aka the 'snitch'. She told us this in a meeting with just my department-processing (which is only 7 people including myself).

    One of my co-workers (Lisa) stated that she is concerned with one of the total of 3 medical coders in the other department joining us. She told us her name, and said that when she was in our department before, she constantly caused problems. She would listen to your phonecalls to see if they were personal or business and mark down how many of each you had. She would note it down and tell Marcy if you came back even 1 minute late from lunch or break. There were other things she did as well. These were legitimate concerns she would raise, so my supe had no choice but to address them. Marcy was forced to micromanage whether she wanted to or not. It was petty crap. Lisa said if this starts up again, she won't be quiet about it.

    I talked to Lisa after the meeting and told her about the whole thing with my laptop, and such, and I suspect that the person she talked about in the meeting. Lisa said it is her (99.99999999999% sure) because she caused problems before, when she was in the processing area. When she was moved because corporate rearranged management stuff, the problems stopped almost immediately, because she was in a different area of the office. She was the only one that moved bcause she was the only PIP/medpay processor before the department grew.

    So....I need all your creativity. I don't want malicious or dangerous ideas. Just stuff to fuck with her head.

    Is it against company policy to bring a laptop to work and listen to music?

    You could pick up the phone, but not hit a line and have 'personal conversations.' When she calls 'Marcy or whomever', look like she's lost her mind. When they pull the message detail, there will be no record of such call. I would get others to do the same type of stuff, so she loses credibility.

    You could always keep tabs on her every move, and keep notes yourself.

    Put a tack on her chair.
    Let the air out of her tires.
    Hide one of your son's shitty diapers in her work station.
    Put acid in her diet Coke.
    Eat her lunch, and put the empty tupper ware back in the staff room fridge.
    Put a "kick me" sign on her back.

    Did you say "not" malicious???

    Way back when I was a communications consultant with the phone company. Surprisingly often major corporations did ask and receive the message files for extensions just for this reason. I know it seems petty, but there is nothing so petty that a communication specialist with your company won't have time to do. Mind you, they are not as good at providing the best service for the employees, but that is another subject.

    i thought about the diaper one... it would be hard to prove, because there are several people who have small kids, but i don't know how i would pull it off

    the tupperware idea would be fine except i don't think she brings her own lunch
