What pathetic things do you do to get your own back on Dh/Dp ??

When I'm angry with him I confess to having:
Hidden his keys
Put out of date food in his lunchbox
Taken the loo roll out of the bathroom
Not told him his Mum has rung...knowing he'd get into big trouble for not ringing back!!!!

Change washing powder and laugh at him itching grin

When DH has spectacularly annoyed me I tend to turn a blind eye to DS attempting to post various things into his playstation.

LadyFlumpalot Sat 11-May-13 19:09:20

I also googled exactly how to complete one of his stupid war games (COD I think) and overwrote all his games with the end credits after one particularly memorable arguments. As I am spectacularly rubbish at those games usually he still doesn't suspect me and thinks its a virus he's picked up from playing online...

One day I might tell him.

Turn up the heating when he's not looking. He does not feel the cold, I do, so the thermostat is flick flacked back and forward all the time in our house.

lemonstartree Sat 11-May-13 19:13:45

bloody hell. This is depressing. You wonder why men think women are vindictive/mad? , What happened to discussion and compromise ?

SirChenjin Sat 11-May-13 19:15:12

DH doesn't think I'm mad or vindictive? hmm

shelli135 Sat 11-May-13 19:21:15

Fart on his pillow shock

TwllBach Sat 11-May-13 19:25:16

I sulk followed by crying followed by having the argument we should have had in the first place.

Some of the things I've read up thread were things I didn't think happened outside of books grin I don't know whether to be disappointed in my lack of creativity or glad that both DP and I lack the creativity! gringrin

DH had been spectacularly patronising and irritating and also needed the car first thing the next day for work. He is also spectacularly lazy when it comes to filling the petrol tank soooooooo, I had the car the previous night and it was low on petrol so I took the scenic route back from where I was and drove round the village a few times to ensure that the petrol tank was empty and went to bed without a word.

And when he is on a roll, I ensure I let the cat in before I leave for early shift so it can jump on him in bed and breathe cat pongy breath in his face until he is forced to get up.

yy to the central heating.

I just love this thread......

In the past I have worn a pair of DH's sock for the day and put them back in his drawer...... unwashed.

Bluestocking Sat 11-May-13 19:42:19

I don't turn his T-shirts the right way out before I fold them and put them back in his drawer.

thefirstmrsrochester Sat 11-May-13 19:44:49

oh, minimal effort but maximum stress for him (or the dc) is to turn the batteries the wrong way round in the remote controls grin
maximum payback & satisfaction for so little effort.

mikkii Sat 11-May-13 19:47:21

DH hates the fact that I am untidy (and was before we got married so he did know), if I leave bags near the door or stairs he throws them away or in the garage.

I don't think he has yet realised that his gym bag and car polishing bag are out there. I stood at the door and hurled them, very satisfying.

Im sorry but i must be a terrible person, what can i say? I love acting like a 12 year old!

Every day i laugh into my coffee because he lectures me about drinking a better class of coffee where as i drink own brand - little does he know I've been filling up the same jar of good stuff with own brand for coming up to 12 months now muwahahaha

jasmineramsden Sat 11-May-13 19:49:24

Hahaha the flowers one is marvellous. I am currently livid at my selfish DP and fantastising about doing some of these is making me smile

2rebecca Sat 11-May-13 19:52:59

We just discuss things if one of us is unhappy and try and sort it out, if my husband did snide petty stuff if he was unhappy with me I'd be highly pissed off and probably not with him.

AThingInYourLife Sat 11-May-13 19:55:59

This thread is bananas.

HalfBakedCleverCookie Sat 11-May-13 20:02:05

Take the remote out with me.

AnAirOfHope Sat 11-May-13 20:03:26

I hate playing mind games in a relationship and its important for me to respect my dh so i hope he has never done anything like this to me sad

What do ypu think your oh have done to you?

SirChenjin Sat 11-May-13 20:15:30

He's turned down the central heating AnAirofHope, why?

shelli135 Sat 11-May-13 20:20:50

Meant to be a lighthearted thread always some who have to take it serious.

Wow this is a light heart thread so get off your high horses and cheer up!

Have any of you seem that couple on YouTube who play pranks on each other. Very very funny, I'll try and find a link.

Naysa Sat 11-May-13 21:08:50

This is meant to be lighthearted hmm I respect DP amd if we have a serious problem we discuss.

If he is just pissing me off I start rearranging his stuff and turning his posters upside down.

I also draw cocks on his car with my finger. I drew a massive one that's been baked on. It's been handwashed twice and the triumphant bastard is still there grin

Mullinsamy Sat 11-May-13 21:14:42

Oh yeah, shifting the position of the rear view mirror in the car, and switching everything on so when he switches on the ignition, all the lights/windscreen wipers come on. gringringringringringrin Cheap laugh, and very childish.
