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Put out of date food in his lunchbox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!!!!

It was an old carpet however the carpet was stuck to the shoes for ever more.

I stuck an ex shoes to the carpet with superglue, he was in such a hurry he ripped up the carpet as he ran out of the door.

God I know none of us take offence though so its all good!

I think there are some people who really don't get this thread! I think the OP was just asking for some silly stuff that people do when they're a bit miffed, not vicious ways of getting back at someone.

Keep the funny ones coming, some of these have had me in stitches.

cheeseandchive Wed 15-May-13 17:43:35

Woah, threesy, you and your DH are hardcore. Sounds like you're both as bad as each other though!

Makes my pube prank look like a knock-knock joke!

Bran, I think alot of these are stuff done to tease DPs rather than aid communication

Damnautocorrect Wed 15-May-13 17:22:29

Realllllly?!! Why, why would you do any of these to the person you love?

Branleuse Wed 15-May-13 17:09:27

jk. we talk about stuff cos we are grown ups.

is this a serious thread?

Branleuse Wed 15-May-13 17:08:21

I shit on his toothbrush

threesypeesy Wed 15-May-13 17:03:39

Only if your nice!!

I have scratched all his massive cd collection with dds help and put them all back in their cases.

Shredded his new clothes

Sprayed a full £60 aftershave down sink and put it back in box

He had put laxatives in my tea rubbed salt in a cut on my head

Gave me a massive love bite on my fore head

I have given him blood blisters every where using wax strips

He rolled me up in a duvet and made my make up to look like a hooker

We often pick up fem fresh and other such things in shops and proclaim loudly that the other needs it

After writing that were sick blush grin I know some will flame me but we find all of above hilarious, I did say we had sick sense of humors

WakeyCakey Wed 15-May-13 15:46:37

My parents are nightmares for it!
My dad always cooks fish in the oven, doesn't clean the baking trays just a quick light wipe and back in the cupboard,
My mum is highly allergic to fish!!

My mum changed the order for concrete for some building work from 20 square feet to 200, so many lorry's came they had to shut the road!!

DP does things like leaves his toenail clippings on my bedside table if I've left the milk out of the fridge.

I have been known to hide all the toilet paper in the house leaving just one tiny piece when I know he needs a poo grin but I don't think he did anything to deserve that blush

NotSoNervous Wed 15-May-13 14:52:27

Ha some of these are great! Love putting rice in all his pockets grin my DP would just empty them back on the floor for me to clean though hmm

NappyHappy Wed 15-May-13 13:54:03

You lot are pussy cats compared to me and dhs practical jokes on each other... we find them hilarious but we have sick senses of humor

I fear they would be too much for some pearl clutchers

D0oinMeCleanin Tue 14-May-13 12:43:35

Dish up extra food on his plate or add extra cream/cheese/other fats to his plate if he has lost more weight than me that week blush

differentnameforthis Tue 14-May-13 12:41:45

If i use his car then i change the radio station that he usually listens to. And this due to the fact that he doesnt put the seat back into the right position (or the mirror) when he drives mine YOu see, I don't see that as revenge at all. We share our cars & more oftent han not, I change his radio staion because I don't want to listen to sport And he is taller than me, so we adjust the seats when we drive. It doesn't get changed when we finish driving, because we just don't think about it...we just adjust ourselves when we get back in our won cars!

tip a couple of his beers down the sink and tell him he must have drunk them. put some of his tobacco in the bin.

If dh tipped some of my drink away, that would piss me off, what a fucking waste of money! And if he threw away my chocolate/whatever, again, pissed off = waste of money! It's stupid stuff, really!

once i restrored his phone to factory settings so he lost everything Again, why?

As I said, we prank each other, but we do it for fun, and we do stupid stuff that won't cost anything, or ruin anything. And it is never in the name of revenge.

We have made it through 24yrs, so obv doing something right!

Kansas - ice, now I never thought of that grin

Nehru,

Garlic granules - dried up garlic that you can add to food. Smells terrible. Tastes worse.

The Mars Bar is entirely true. You have to dig the filling out with a teaspoon. Just the very middle bit, or it would fall apart. It was done on first attempt. Try it and see.

exoticfruits Sun 12-May-13 22:30:33

It seems weird to me- as if you are the child. I would just talk about whatever was upsetting me and get a solution.

KansasCityOctopus Sun 12-May-13 22:19:51

if you're doing this stuff maliciously, then yes.. it probably is questionable.. but my DH and I are pranksters, i have been known to pull his trousers down when he's walking across the living room with his hands full.. and he's been known to casually walk past and drop ice down my bra.

I have also, on occasion, had my hands on the ice block and then crawled into bed and put my very very cold hands all over him so he yelps... and he has retaliated by shoving my head under the quilt and bombarding me with curry farts. <boak>

WE do hide behind doors and jump out at each other, throw things (soft things) at each other, run up and shout random words when we're playing online with the microphone on so people we're playing with can hear.

i've restrung his guitar to left handed before rehearsal, he's hidden my musical scores in random places, i've put confetti in the toilet roll so when he pulled the paper off the roll, the confetti flew everywhere.

Its just random 'revenge' in a "Right, thats it, you're gonna get it now Mister!" kind of way.

Nothing, I honestly didn't realise that people did these things, very strange.
