I know, I know. The best revenge is to move on and better yourself but after sharing joke (ish) revenge options with a friend tonight, I'd love to hear yours!
Entertain me. I'm bored 😂

My mum was engaged when she was 19 and he cheated on her. Before she left she poked prawns into the hem of the curtains, down the radiator slats and into his car heater slats grin

I think the best one was the woman who took all her husband's best wine bottles and delivered them door to door!

Oh my. The wine bottles! 😂 Keep them coming! My social life is dire right now.

Someone I know changed the name on her Ex's flight tickets for travelling to a (niche) World Championships he had qualified to compete in, so they wouldn't let him on the plane.

I'm not sure it qualifies as "best" but it's certainly the most spiteful one I've heard.

I liked one I heard on the radio once where the gf took revenge but picking up her stuff whilst ex bf was on holiday, she then covered the living room carpet in cress seeds and gave them a little water - he came back from a 2 week holiday to a living room lawn!!

I went to university after splitting up with my ex, I graduated with a higher classification than him and then did my masters and got a distinction to his pass grin

My friends mum found out her friends dad was cheating, she baked him a special pie. He came home, tucked in like the greedy sod that he was, seemingly enjoying it, she said is your pie good love? He said mmmm yes thanks! She said good because its fucking pedigree chum you bastard!

EdwardCullensBiteOnTheSide Sun 13-Sep-20 19:51:28

Not her friends dad! My friends dad!

When my ex cheated I put hair removal cream into his beloved hair wax before I left

I stuffed a potato up an ex's car exhaust and rammed it in with a stick. It's an old trick my dad taught me. He said, "the car won't start and they'll have the whole engine out trying to work out what's wrong with it."

Sugar in the petrol tank also causes utter destruction too, but sadly petrol caps are locking these days.

AmandaHoldensLips Sun 13-Sep-20 19:59:50

@katie43210 - that is genius.

I wallpapered my cheating ex's bedroom with his porn mags.

Once emptied bottles of Mateus and filled them with diluted juice..

AdoptedBumpkin Sun 13-Sep-20 20:10:55

Some classic stories here. The wine bottles is my favourite - not too harmful but revenge he would never forget.

AmandaHoldensLips Sun 13-Sep-20 20:38:59

Wasn't there also something about a woman who cut 2" off the bottom of one leg on all her husband's suit trousers? I think she'd caught him shagging his secretary.

katie43210 Sun 13-Sep-20 21:27:32

@AmandaHoldensLips why thank you. The ex did not agree.

I filled my (expensive) shampoo and conditioner bottles with Shower-Immac/Veet when I got pissed off with one of the blokes helping himself to my stuff in what was supposed to be my ‘personal’ shower (shared accommodation block with separated facilities). Didn’t seem to affect his hair, but he complained in the bar about his eyebrows falling out.

DH and I also shagged on the bosses desk one evening when I was on duty blush

katie43210 Sun 13-Sep-20 22:17:33

@exLt this is why I went for the wax, I thought the shampoo and conditioner wouldn't be on his head long enough for the full effect. However, after 8 hours I can confirm it definitely did what I'd hoped.

DustyLoafer Sun 13-Sep-20 22:20:33

These are great ideas but how do you get revenge on somebody you don't live near to?

catzrulz Sun 13-Sep-20 22:27:56

My friend sent me this link, it's an idea we have for an ex boss who made our lives absolute hell.

MrsHuntGeneNotJeremyObviously Sun 13-Sep-20 23:36:57

Not mine or anyone I know, but the best revenge story I heard was of a woman whose ex was trying to cheat her out of her share of the house. When she moved out she put prawns inside the curtain poles. The house absolutely stank! The ex couldn't sell it and couldn't ever figure out what was wrong. In the end he sold the house to the woman for less than it was worth just to get shot of it. When he moved out, he took the curtain poles with him!
I really hope it's a true story - I think there's something beautifully just about it.

I worked with someone who was intent on making my life miserable. I invested in some glitter the same colour as her chair. Every time she pissed me off I’d sprinkle just a little bit on her chair. She’d never notice until she was stood up and someone would try and brush it off and she’d go spare! She never knew it was coming from her chair and she never knew it was me.

Cheating ex - I cut the middle out of all of his boxers, so they were skirts grin
