What’s the ideal way to serve revenge: piping hot, ice-cold, or with a dash of spicy karma? Regardless of the flavor some prefer when dishing out well-deserved vengeance, the most effective retaliation is the one that catches its target off guard. While turning the other cheek might seem noble, there comes a point when it’s no longer feasible, and certain individuals must be held accountable.
During an online discussion, people recounted their most satisfying revenge tales, and we concur that these reprisals were entirely justified.
1. The Pumpkin Destroyer’s Last Day
A man who had taken to ruining his neighbor’s Fall pumpkin display yearly finally had his bad manners handed back to him in the sweetest way possible.
The neighbor carved a pumping as usual but filled it with Quikrete. As usual, the nuisance drove over it as he had done every year before, but he was in for a rude shock.
The commenter adds, “The jack**s broke the axle of his shotty car when he hit that pumpkin. [He] could not drive away. My friend had his car towed away, too.”
2. Sibling War Revenge
Siblings are known to fight, and it’s not always fair. One sister decided to give her troublesome brother some trouble of her own.
Her now-husband narrates, “My wife turned off the TV, wrote “broken” on a piece of paper taped to the TV, shut off the power strip, and flipped the batteries around in the remote. Took my brother-in-law several days to figure it out.”
3. MailBox Revenge
Some naughty people with the habit of kicking down a mailbox were put to a stop in the best way. After 8 mailboxes were ruined, one dad stuck an I-beam filled with Quikrete in the ground.
Someone shares, “Next time it got hit, the a**hole wrapped his car around it, like the mailbox/pole was sticking out of the middle of his car. After that, the mailbox was never hit again.”
Serves him right, it seems.
4. Frozen Pee
Some noisy neighbors who liked to party late received a rather stinky surprise one morning. An irritated neighbor froze urine in a pizza pan, removed the iceblock of urine from the pan, and slipped it under their door to their carpet.
A user adds, “Woke up to them shouting at the people who crashed there about who pi**ed on the floor what the f*** was wrong with them. Wish I could say they toned down their parties, but they didn’t and eventually got evicted.”
5. Restaurant Table Linen
Do you check your restaurant receipts every time? You may be paying for the most ridiculous things. One online user says he found a $3 charge for “table linen.”
He adds, “As I was leaving, I folded up the tablecloth. The waiter said, “What are you doing?” I said I paid for it. I’m taking it home. And I did.”
6. A Drink Without A Name
When a guy became rude and abusive to a waitress who asked for his name at a Starbucks, her colleague plotted the perfect revenge.
He says, “I just keep putting drinks out for about 10/15 minutes, and [the] d*****bag walks up and picks up his drink that’s now lukewarm and goes, “Is this mine?” I just respond with, “I don’t know. It doesn’t have a name on it.”” Well played indeed.
7. Bathroom Mess
Living with a messy roommate can be a nightmare. One lady lived with someone who left such a mess on their bathroom floor that there was hardly space to walk on. She lost money on that floor one day, and her neater roommate found it.
She narrates, “I put the money in one of her lesser-used bathroom drawers. Originally, I put it there to protect it from our third roommate and her friends. When I came home the next day and noticed that she was clearing her mess in an effort to find it, I decided not to tell her where the money was until our bathroom floor was spotless.”
That’s one way to help someone clean up.
8. A Tailgater’s Reward
Driving can induce some of the worst traits in people, and one motorist had a bad experience, being tailgated by an aggressive driver while in the slow lane.
He narrates, “Guy in an El Camino was aggressively tailgating me in the slow lane. On the highway. Traffic was light so he could have passed easily. I’m in an SUV. I see metal debris in the road ahead of me. I know I can clear it and do. He wasn’t so lucky.”
9. How To Handle A Payment Defaulter
It’s very painful when one does a job for someone, and they refuse to honor their payment plans. One worker decided to give the defaulter a taste of his own medicine.
An online user says. “[He] placed fake ‘for sale ads’ with too good a deal like ‘a nice boat for 1000$’ and other numerous ads with the guy’s number. Our city is big on garage sales. He posted ads like “moving out sale, everything must go, cheap! Will be held inside the house, just walk in or ring the doorbell” then put this guy’s address on the ad.”
You’d have to change your number after something like this.
10. How To Pay Back A Debtor
It’s always good to pay back people what you owe them, especially if those people are IT experts.
One user says, “Reminds me of when someone owed me $50 and refused to pay, so being in IT I reduced their Mailbox size so they could only hold around 10 e-mails, removed them from distro groups so they missed important group e-mails, and every day for like 3 months I went to their account and checked the little box “Must change password at next login.”
That’s just cruel but also hilarious.
11. When The Bad Tummy Can’t Wait
Teachers are great people, but a few elements in the teaching fraternity make others look bad.
One user shares their experience in school, “My husband, as a small child in school, was sick, and the teacher wouldn’t let him go to the bathroom to throw up, so he went to her desk (where she was sitting) and threw up all over that instead.” That’s fair.
12. Dealing With Workplace Food Thieves
It’s such a bummer when you have your lunch stolen at work. This practice was rampant in one office, and a girl was always going hungry.
Her husband, who used to make her lunch, devised a solid revenge plan, “One night, I bought a big a** Gatorade and a box of those women’s laxatives, both red in color. Couldn’t tell if the two were mixed, but we found out who the thief was.” Ouch.
13. Laughing At Disability
One of the worst human traits is laughing at someone with a disability just because you can. When one girl with a hearing problem faced bullying and being laughed at by a classmate, she plotted the perfect revenge.
“She says, “I wear hearing aids, and a girl in my math class when I was in HS used to make fun of me. I had not said 2 words to her, I gave her no reason to do it, she was just being an evil c***. I recorded her mocking my hearing loss on my phone and played it for her parents. They took the new car they just bought her back to the dealership.”
Good parenting right there.
14. Popcorn Scent Airfreshener
The office is full of people with different idiosyncracies, and one boss particularly didn’t like the smell of microwave popcorn, so she removed the office microwave.
One employee devised the perfect revenge plan, “[I] found one of those USB sticks that emits a smell when plugged in…the smell of buttered popcorn. I bought it, plugged it into the back of her computer, and she had the sweet smell of PopSecret in her office for six f***g months. She complained almost every day. It’s the sweetest revenge I’ve ever tasted.”
Who knew revenge is best served smelling like popcorn?
