Go on some of you must have. I'm bored as he'll . I could use some stuff to read !

Ilovenewts Fri 01-Aug-14 18:59:22

Ilovenewts Fri 01-Aug-14 19:06:54

When my cheating, dickish ex dumped me, he really didn't like the fact I didn't crumple and fade. He went ballistic when I met someone else quite quickly and did his best to make my life difficult. (Told people I had STIs, etc - lovely.)

Unfortunately for him he took to drinking with a very dubious crowd of skinhead racists and quickly got arrested for criminal damage, sexual assault and drink driving.

Years later he had the nerve to get touch asking on advice on how to become a teacher!!

There aren't many people I wish ill towards, but he is most definitely one.

Ugh he sounds vile ! Bet he never got to be a teacher smile

Nope, he manages a fast food restaurant and impregnated a 17 year old.

Ilovenewts Fri 01-Aug-14 19:14:58

Oh lovely. Can't think why you didn't want him.

Someone I worked with years ago was an utter bitch to me: sabotaged my work, spread rumours, wouldn't speak to me. Made all the more hurtful because for a while we had been friends and she turned on me literally over night.

I eventually left the role, in large part due to her behaviour. Imagine my pleasure years later when her CV landed on my desk grin

None here I'm afraid.
Not sure I believe in karma as all the unpleasant people and ones who have caused a lot of anguish to others that I know are leading very pleasant lives with long term partners and are usually in excellent health, financially very secure, have good cars and lots of holidays!
Amazing really.

Past perfect I have had identical scenario. I loved signing the letter thanking her for her application but we would not be taking it further.....did you gave her in for interview to make her squirm? I wanted to do they but worried she'd say interview wasn't fair or something.

Pastperfect Fri 01-Aug-14 19:32:36

fluffy I think I posted about it before but yes I interviewed her.... or rather was part of the panel.

I'll put my hands up and say I was a bitch about it. It was for a senior role and I knew she would be keen to get the position. She was interviewed on phone by HR and then came for an assesment centre.

She had to prep a presentation and when she walked in to present there I was.

I asked HR to ask her she could give an example if a time where she had successfully dealt with conflict grin

Fluffyears Fri 01-Aug-14 19:35:33

Oh that's good. Take it she didn't get the role??

Ilovenewts Fri 01-Aug-14 19:36:00

Ooh how did she react when she saw you ? And did she give an example of conflict ?

BridgettRousselot Fri 01-Aug-14 19:39:06

I also think there is no such thing as karma either, as also the nasty bastards I know are not alone, have good health, lots of money, opportunities and experiences also, they appear to have it all.

BathroomTiles Fri 01-Aug-14 19:39:32

I'm still waiting for day, bastards grin

Ds1 had just recovered from chickenpox. I was excited to get out and about again sil had invited us to her birthday party and when she heard ds1 had had chickenpox she uninvited us as she would rather have her cousin her 2 little boys there and was worried they would catch it (they wouldn't have he was better)

I was very disappointed, having been pretty much quarantined for 2 weeks, but didn't go and moaned a lot to dh

The day after the party both of her cousins boys went down with chickenpox. (They had never met my ds) It did make me feel a bit better about not having been there.

I actually started a post but didn't want to be 1st!! Here goes and I want to say that the whole thing is sad and in no way am I gloating...
I had a fall out with a friend of 20 years about their 12 year old DSs awful behaviour towards my 13 yr old DD. Remarks on the bus about seeing her on a porn movie etc...what I expected when I gently told her what he had been doing was for them to sit him down and explain that this was not right, apologize and move on....OH turned into a right vicious rant from her DH about the fact that their DS wouldn't do this, he never lies and that my DD was the went on for a lot worse...going to sue me for slander etc etc.. just needed a father/son talk. I behaved like a lady though and if any one asked why the fallout I kept my gob shut. This happened 8 years ago and we still don't the comeuppance bit...Whilst my DD isn't perfect, she is lovely, well liked in our town. Their child on the other hand has been banned from the pubs, is known as a liar?! He is an unhappy young man and none of my DDs friends will give him the time of day...She obviously told people. He always tries to talk to DD but she, like me will never forget. My DS said something innapropriate and got in trouble...we made him write an apology, give it to the person personally, after a roasting from us (he is actually seeing the girl in question and is well liked by her parents). Why oh why couldn't they have just done this? I feel awful writing this as it is a sad comeuppance really...

I have a nice story in how an uber bitch turned her life around...

Worked "under" her, she was younger than me. Witnessed a very bitchy put down of someone else at work. Right bossy bitch she was.

Left that job is it a wonder? when I heard via via a few years later her mother had committed suicide.....
Poor girl, I really felt for her...

She ended up in Hawaii getting into holistic healing and gave me a free massage when I ran into her several years later.
She was lovely then, had dropped all that bullshit - which was only a mask actually to hide whatever she felt she had to hide from.

All people being bitches are hurting, doesn,t mean you have to put up with it...

I saw her being in my life to teach me assertiveness.
And boundaries.

Ilovenewts Fri 01-Aug-14 20:17:46

Good thread so far !

Marylou62 Fri 01-Aug-14 20:30:38

At a school reunion I saw my bullies for what they are.....Terrible time all through my school years...but have travelled the world and am happy. They had been nowhere and done nothing.

I am waiting for a colleague to get his comeuppance ....not sure it will happen, he seems to live a charmed life...BUT IF it happens I hope to get a front row seat! grin

I had a complete psycho bitch boss. She always screamed at me, locked me in the building once late at night because she thought not enough work had been done, accused me of theft!!!!!

She was a workaholic fruitcake with no personal life to speak of and had been there 25 years.

Anyway, she retired when the place closed down and the next day she dropped dead from a heart attack!!!! Karma!

scottishmummy Fri 01-Aug-14 21:22:02

That's not karma.thats a. Lumina tigon of likely factors eg stress

scottishmummy Fri 01-Aug-14 21:23:21

Culmination of likely factors,eg stress

pickles184 Fri 01-Aug-14 21:25:12

Sadly in my experience, every bastard, wrong doer and all-round nasty pieces of work I have ever met seem to be living the life of riley with loving partners, good health and plenty of money.
Seems that Karma has been working in reverse around me sad
