I don't agree with people screaming at their employees, taking credit shamelessly and kissing so much ass like the antagonist of todays story did however the not-nice guy did make a case for his job to the management. He feared losing his job and presented a case for himself to upper management.

In my experience if you don't make any noise(good or bad) then nobody knows you're there. I don't think this situation sounds like it had to do with being a nice guy as much as it did being a quiet guy.

What's the first thing you do when you get a machine that's come out of no place and been previously used? You snoop around for things.
