Revenge on male co-workers?

Have any women here every been bullied at work AND gotten revenge on the guy who was doing it?  Assuming it was a male.

I only as ask as the factory where I work a woman was bullied, along with others, for months and her and her husband, quite by chance, came across the bully in a compromising position and got their revenge that way.

After that he no longer bullies her or anybody.

I have to disagree with Akaeaves. I don't think it's "fair" or really the right thing to do to always give back what negativity has been directed your way. I think often that can actually disservice yourself further. Of course you shouldn't be aiming to be putting anyone in the hospital, but even verbally attacking someone at work can lead to your own dismissal, whether you were provoked or not. I'm not sure what bullying the OP actually saw, but I wouldn't, in general, advise anyone to try to get back at another coworker directly.

I'm not a women, at least not the last time I looked, lol.  Sorry, but I have to reply that it is only fair to give back what you get if not worse than what you got.  Smile  Just don't do anything to hurt someone, like hospital wise.
