Having a one night stand is not an uncommon phenomenon, but having one with your boss rarely ends well, as was the case with real estate agent Megan Moody in Australia.
The then 31 year old made the poor decision of sleeping with her boss (in her defense, her boss made a poor choice as well) in 2007. Afterwards, things went along smoothly until Moody was fired from her job in 2009. That is when things got weird.
Moody went on to send 161 text messages to her former employer of a threatening nature, including many death threats. One example: “You give me a dead grandmother and I’ll give your parents a dead son. Either way I’m going to kill you.”
She began sending more specific threats including ones with pictures of a baseball bat. The situation deteriorated further when she showed up at her old office brandishing the bat and threatening to harm her former boss, which she reportedly developed an unhealthy obsession with.
Moody ignored suggestions to seek professional counseling, but was later assigned involuntary counseling by a government official. She ultimately was convicted and spent 10 days in jail for her illegal death threats and harassment. Certainly not an upstanding, trustworthy real estate agent you want to hire.
