To ask your stories of petty revenge?(110 Posts)
DP and I have a shopping agreement, one of us shops and the other unloads the car and puts everything away. A couple of weeks ago we had a minor spat about housework and I went off to Tesco, did the shopping and headed to the checkout. Now, not only did I double bag everything and fill it as much as I can, I also parked a few houses down as the car "wouldn't fit on the drive way".
How about you?
Been known to forget to put the washing on so no clean shirts in the house - oh dear !! Whoops !!!
Husband asked for specific and favourite foodstuff to be purchased in supermarket. When I returned I told him they had sold out. That wasn't true.
I shook all his bottles of beer in the beer fridge
They all fizzed on opening
He blamed the young lad in the shop
Acasual I have done this! Or got him a smaller packet when he wanted a multipack
I really don't do petty revenge. I take pleasure from being totally open about it
I did read years ago though about a woman whose ex boyfriend told her she wasn't 'fit to iron his shirts' and from now on, he'll iron them all himself.
So before she left his flat, she pissed in his steam iron
An ex-boyfriend (from when I was a teenager) sent his friend round to pick his stuff up from my parents' house at a time I would be out (music lesson). I thought this so spineless I took all the fuses out of the plugs of the electrical things he left at the house. I'm not entirely sure why this was revenge, but he did scratch his initials on my camera and therefore deserved my 17 year old wrath.
I've never done anything like that. I can't work up the energy if I'm honest and would be convinced it would all backfire on me.
I always wondered if that story about sewing prawns into the curtain hems was true...
Many many years ago and newly married in the days when we ironed crisp creases into demin jeans .... i deliberately (and maybe with a little spray starch) steam ironed 3 pairs of DP jeans flat ... so the legs where just flat and wide and looked like cowboy chaps ... NOT a good look
Resulted in major strop by him and much laughter from me. He soon took to ironing his own clothes .. today i cannot remember what my revenge was even for
a woman i used to work with was really nasty to me every day but only when we were alone, in front of management or work collegues she was as nice as pie people thought we were good friends.
one day my manager went into the toilets so i went in knowing that nasty collegue would start looking for me to have a go.
manager was in the toilet, i stood by the sink washing my hands waiting for nasty woman to come in.
she did and started shouting at me that i'd better get out there now and get my fucking job done stop fucking time wasting
manager came out the toilet and went mad told her who does she think she is talking to someone like. she was called in the office before she went home and given a verble warning
she left me alone after that
Many many years ago, someone shunted my car from behind causing damage to my vehicle as it then crashed into a bridge, he gave me his business card but I didn't get the reg plate and he then denied all knowledge so I had to foot the bill. All I had was his business card, with his name and the address of where he worked (an estate agency locally where he was the manager).
I had a friend who worked in a video shop nearby and arranged for her to send a couple of porno vids to his office address, to his name (but crucially NOT marked private and confidential) so that whoever opened the incoming mail in that office (presumably not him as he was the manager) would see the dodgy vids with a message 'think you left these behind the other night NAME'....
Yes, it was petty - but it felt good doing it. I hope he felt suitably humiliated.
Years and years ago on school camp....
It was a miserable week. We were crammed into old fashioned army tents and it pissed it down all week.
My supposed best friend decided on day 2 she hated me. I'm not sure what I did but she and one other girl decided to not only drop me but be cruel about it, including attempting to get me lost in an unfamiliar city.
I got back to the tent first that evening. I left a wet footprint on her sleeping bag and rubbed all the canvas above where her head would be when asleep. Did I mention they were old fashioned canvas tents?
It leaked, she got wet and I felt a lot better.
You may e joy the reddit sub, /pettyrevenge. Or indeed, /prorevenge.
They are inspiring.
My friend's husband was having an affair. He supposedly had been training for a Marathon so he was legitimately out at night. My friend found a letter not meant for her, from the OW and was heartbroken.
She confided in me, and with super human effort she managed not to say any thing until she had had a big think about what she wanted. I have never known anyone so in love with their husband. It was a terrible time.
He loved her chocolate cake, as she is a damn good cook. On the day before the Marathon, my friend made a beautiful chocolate cake and decorated it liberally with chocolate X Lax curls . It gave him diarrhoea, so he couldn't take part in the Marathon.
They stayed together, but 9 years later, he did it again with another woman and she divorced him. He was and is a womanising pile of shite.
My dear friend has remarried to a wonderful kind man who appreciates her.
We still laugh about it now.
Please no lectures about how dangerous it was to administer medicine to him. We were very careful to seek advice first.
I peed into my abusive, womanising exH milk and LOVED watching him drink it in his coffee!
FYI urine is sterile, about 94% water and pretty harmless. Pity .......
Ex Lax too good for him I say.
Many years ago , big argument with boyfriend about laundry. I told him he had to put a load on before going to the pub and hid all his footwear at the bottom of the laundry bin, knowing he would overlook the washing and thus receive poetic justice! Turns out he was more stubborn than proud and I met him later at the pub, in slippers... Touché.
A guy in sixth form was constantly a shit to one of mine and dhs friends because he came out as gay, we were 18 and all Iin college together.
This shit guy was going to Leeds festival with someone dh knew quite well. We managed to get access to shit guy's tent before he went and me, friend and dh wrote 'Im a massive queer' (one of his favourite insults to our friend) in huge letters with a marker on his tent, and we put holes all over it. We put it back in the storage bag and got it back to shit guy
He drove all the way to Leeds fest with a tent that was full of holes, it was raining heavily all weekend too.
DH changed the bed and rather than actually, you know, look for one of the many, many fitted sheets we own, instead managed to find a valance that went on a bed we'd got rid of ten years before and put that on. I knew if I complained he would say he "couldn't find" any of the fitted sheets but I suspected it was a PA way of doing a shit job and hoping not to be asked again and also of making me re-do it. So, instead I pulled the sheet right over to my side and tucked it in, which meant I had a nice smooth bit of sheet and was fine but he was lying on the seam and frill which looked jolly uncomfortable and it was all flapping about.
It took a couple of days for him to complain that the sheet wasn't very comfortable. I explained he had put a valance on and not a sheet. The "couldn't find . . ." explanation ensued. I then said "Well, you've made your bed, DH, you lie in it." He had the good grace to laugh.
When one of my exes behaved like a cunt and then dumped me...on the way out of his house, I used the toilet. I pissed on his toothbrush and then scrubbed the toilet bowl with it.
You are right. Absolutely too good for him. She is still affected by what happened.
Her X has had countless affairs and been married four times at the last count
Acquaintance of mine was a nob in more ways than one and had pissed me off one too many times
So my best mate and myself spent the best part of a day filling in those 'send off for free information' things you get in the back of magazines and newspapers.
We had a lot of magazines and newspapers.
And then had a giggle when the conservatory people went to his 15th floor flat to ask him if he wanted a conservatory.
Oo just thought of another one (actually Dp reminded me ). When he irritates me I hide his teabags/coffee capsules. He rumbled me once!
Honeysuckle I can't get the hang of Reddit! Although I do occasionally browse /justnomil
I posted about this before years ago but I lived next door to a woman who was utterly, demonically OBSESSED with my wheelie bin. I used to catch her moving it a few inches to the left so it was more on my side of the garden, find little snippy notes attached saying things like "please clean me, I don't like being dirty" and "please put me back inside the property boundries promptly, I don't like being on the pavement..." she was crazy, it was clean and the maximum amount of time I'd take to bring it in would be half a day
Anyway, it all came to a head when she reported my wheelie bin crimes to the council and I got a letter, which I responded to, telling them she's weirdly obsessed with me and to ignore it. Got another letter telling me there had been more complaints, which I ignored. Then I got a visit from a man who was attempting to take my wheelie bin, and she stood on her doorstep smugly smiling as I told him to do one, which he did. She was most displeased.
My petty revenge was the day I moved out, I kidnapped her wheelie bin at 1am (I was up all night doing last minute packing ready for an early start), walked it half a mile up our long, long road and attached a luminous green, A4 note to the lid saying "My owner is a loony and I have run away, please help me"
I am an utter child, but it was satisfying.
