When you find yourself between a rock and a hard place, it’s sometimes hard to figure out how to get out. Perhaps this sense of hopelessness stems from a bully who constantly terrorizes you at school. Or a ruthless boss who has their head so far up their own butt, they can take a bite out of their own black heart.
Over time, that dark feeling expands and compounds into a kind of dark hole that just keeps swallowing bits and pieces of your life. Like a tunnel without an end, there doesn’t seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel.
Instead of waiting for the light to finally light up their life, signaling the end of this dreaded life chapter, some punch a hole in the tunnel. Sick and tired of the constant mistreatment, they revolt and when that happens, one of two things occurs.
The first is that their anger and frustration is so sudden, so uncontrollable, that they burst from the seams of sanity and lash out. Their assailant suddenly becomes the victim, feeling every wound their victim felt.
The second thing that could happen is much, much worse…but it takes time. Seething with feelings of hatred and contempt, the victim concocts a plan to exact revenge. The plan is calculated and when it happens, the tyrant is dumbfounded, confused, and most of all: remorseful.
Here are some of the best stories of victims who rose from the ashes like a phoenix to teach their oppressors a lesson they’ll not soon forget.
29. This Mother Was Quiet, Reserved…And Knew When To Employ Tactics Used In The Scarlet Letter
“Not me but my mom.
When I was nine (I’m 26 now) my parents went through a really rough divorce. Long story short, my dad had a very public and long-term affair with a prominent public figure in our area (We’ll call her Debbie.) Naturally, my mother was humiliated, but back then she was quite meek, unassuming, and not at all vindictive. She only did one thing to the woman that broke up my family.
My mom is a nurse and about 6 months after the divorce she was attending a medical conference in our area. As she walks into the room, she saw that one of the panelists was the woman who slept with her husband. Shocked, but always in control, my mother calmly walked to the very front of the room and sat down silently in front of Debbie. Now, Debbie had been a family friend for over a decade, so my mom was intimately familiar with her upbringing and unfortunate issues. Remembering that she was an English Lit major in undergrad, my mom took out a red sharpie and drew a very large ‘A’ on the notebook that she brought to the conference. She turned it around and faced it directly at Debbie, never saying a word. Debbie was visibly agitated, and when it came time for her to speak, something amazing happened: She started ticking. You see, my mother also knew Debbie had a condition that when under immense stress, despite significant speech therapy and experience in public speaking, she began to twitch and stutter. She twitched so much it impaired her speech, and she had to rush her portion. When she ended, my mother calmly shut her notebook, smiled at the woman, and walked out of the room. She never spoke a word. That was the last they saw of each other.” Snufaluffaloo
28. He Made Sure Those Kids Were Taught A Very Valuable Life Lesson About Patience
“I was living in a Middle Eastern country a few years back. Nice place, but because 50% of the population in the region is under the age of 20, the roads are simply overrun by teenage and early-20s hooligans. The culture’s fatalism makes young guys even more reckless and irresponsible than they are already programmed to be by their hormones.
So, after a rare rain shower, the highway becomes flooded up ahead. 18 inches deep. Traffic is backed up for at least a mile, and it takes us 15 minutes to get to the flooded patch. Everyone is p*ssed. Then I see two cars full of teenage yahoos passing people on the shoulder on the right from way behind me. Motherf*cker, there’s just no excuse for that horsesh*t.
Eventually, they get to where I am, and they pass me just as we’re reaching the 50-yard stretch where the flooding is crossing the road. One of them crosses into the far left lane, and one stays in the right lane to avoid the deep water… in the middle lane…
And wouldn’t you know it? Their windows are rolled down…
I’m in a Toyota Land Cruiser – nice big 4WD. So while they’re crawling through a foot of water in their little action-boy Hondas, I decide to GUN IT between them through the deep stuff in the middle lane.
The wave from my front wheels was about 6 feet high, and it had to have put 20 gallons of water through the windows of both cars. Completely. Freaking. Drenched. All of them. With nasty urban stormwater runoff.
Of course, they chased up after me once they cleared the water, screaming and cursing, but I just pretended to be on my phone and ignored them. Eventually, they gave up and (I hope) figured I had just been as impatient and selfish as them and had hosed them by accident.
Most satisfying revenge of my life.” [deleted]
27. While He Caught The First Trick, The Sweetest Revenge Of All Is The Prank He Never Found Out About Until Months Later
“About a month ago, I found out my coworker, a good friend of mine was cheating with my girlfriend at the time. Teamed up with few other work buddies and decided to teach him a lesson. We went to a Korean mart and bought 2 frozen raw fish. With the help of one of my buddies, I was able to get hold of his car keys. So we hid one of those 2 fish we bought earlier in a place which would be pretty obvious and easy to notice and we duct-taped the other fish underneath his passenger side seat.
He did find one of the fish and was pretty mad with us. Here’s the sweet revenge though: He kept complaining that he just couldn’t get rid of the fishy smell from his car even though he cleaned his car with shampoo and has used all kinds of car scent.
I quit that work a few days after, so I don’t know if he found the other fish yet. We don’t talk anymore.” tootsie_rolex
26. This Teacher Caught His Cheaters Red-Handed And They Got Exactly What They Deserved
“I’m a professor. Many years ago, I had a small cluster of students in one course that I strongly suspected were cheating; scattered evidence suggested that they had knowledge of my test content ahead of time. I don’t let my students keep their test copies, and I re-write my tests every semester, so this was puzzling. I determined that the most likely way they were cheating was during the photocopying process, so I set out to test that possibility first.
When the next test in the course was getting close, I left the previous semester’s version of the test in the photocopy room as bait. I then rewrote the new version of the test, keeping page 1 the same to avoid raising suspicions on test day but otherwise completely revising the questions. I made the new copies on another department’s copier the morning of the test.
Sure enough, when I graded the test I found that my cheaters all had perfect scores on the page 1 questions, but then bombed all subsequent questions to varying degrees. They all went from ‘A’s on the first two tests to ‘D’s and ‘F’s on the test in question. Those patterns alone probably wouldn’t be enough evidence for an airtight academic integrity charge, but one of them gave up the whole group and the plan when I called her in to confront her with the test copies. Turns out they had access to my department’s copy room from a former student worker and would routinely pop in and steal exams in the to-be-copied pile after hours.
In the end, it caused a big disciplinary fuss in the administration with ‘F’ grades, multiple suspensions, and one expulsion, which is a true rarity given how gun-shy universities are about kicking out students. The cheaters were hoisted by their own petard and I got what passes for professor street cred among my peers for catching a well-organized group that many others had missed.” galileosmiddlefinger
25. She Wanted To Get Even At Her Ex-Bestie, So She Completely Ruined Her Birthday Party
“In high school one of my best friends started dating my ex-boyfriend the day after we broke up… Which happened to be my 16th birthday. So then and there I decided to ruin her sweet sixteen. I just wasn’t sure how.
Fast forward three months. She planned an extravagant birthday party and played hooky from school the Friday before the big party to prepare. This was my opportunity. I told everyone at school that she had gotten the flu, and was postponing the party (hence why she wasn’t in school). We were neighbors so everyone bought it.
The next day she got all dolled up, arrived at her sweet 16 party in a large rented ballroom only to spend the entire party with her mom and little sister, not one person showed up.
Looking back it was terrible and mean, but to a 16-year-old girl I felt she broke sacred girl code, and that’s never okay.”reading_is_sexy
24. This Police Officer Engaged In A Dangerous Race And Got Exactly What He Deserved
“While driving to drop someone off, my radar detector went off. I saw a cop sitting in a parking lot. Dropped off my friend and headed back. The whole way some a*s is tailgating me. Speed limits 40, I’m doing 45 and he’s so close I can’t see his headlights.
We come up to a traffic circle and he tries to pass me on the right. I sped up and he kept trying. We hit about 80-90 with him on the shoulder. Come up to the crest of a hill and I know the cop is right on the other side. I hit the brakes and he flew up over the hill, had to be doing 90 in a 40.
I even stopped to let the cop out of the parking lot. MOST. SATISFYING. THING. EVER.” Jacknife_Johnny
23. She Held A Grudge For So Many Years That When She Had Her Revenge, It Unfolded Naturally
“My first ‘real’ boyfriend (we kissed instead of just holding hands) kissed another girl and dumped me for her when I was a freshman in high school. She had actively pursued him although she knew he had a girlfriend, so I blamed her rather than him. (I know, I know.)
Fast forward four years: I was a volleyball player throughout college. In the off-season, I played in a city women’s league and a co-ed league as an outside hitter. My team played a new team with a familiar face. She didn’t recognize me (different high schools), but I immediately recognized her. My team’s setter kept giving me amazing sets and I kept slamming the ball over the net, just waiting for my shot. Finally, she was in the back row and my setter set me up. I hit the ball and the boyfriend stealer stepped into the hit. It bounced off her foot, and went straight up into her face… and broke her nose.” FutileUtility
22. The Rude Customer Ordered Ham, And Only Ham
“I work at Potbelly sandwiches and whenever I get a doorknob guy or gal, I give them a crummy-cut bread or less meat. This one time I had a lady order 5 sandwiches. I’m about to start making her sandwiches when the guy behind her comes up and says, ‘Ham.’
Me: ‘I’ll be with you in a minute sir.’
Me: ‘Sir, I will be wi –
Doorknob: ‘No I just want ham.’
This dude proceeds to step out of line to answer his phone. Instead of trying to stop him to find out the size or type of bread, I finished the woman’s order then sent a serving of ham through the oven. When the guy finally came back 10 minutes later, cutting a bunch of people in line, he was upset to find he got just ham, like he ordered. I probably would’ve gotten in trouble if my manager wasn’t right behind me when he ordered.” greenstatic92
21. Getting Called A Name Was A Small Price To Pay For A Lifetime Of Satisfaction
“This may seem small, but it was the most satisfying thing I have ever done. When I was in the seventh grade I sat behind a jerk who hated me and enjoyed being annoying. Every single goddamn day he would lean back in his chair and hit the front of my desk, over and ever again. If I was trying to write something, he would do it even harder. So one day I decided enough was enough, and in the middle of a lesson, he started again. So I waited, and right as he was leaning his chair back fast, trying to knock my desk hard, I pulled it back.
Without my desk behind him, his chair tipped right over and he hit the ground hard. I can still clearly remember him whispering ‘you b*tch’ beneath the laughter of the whole class and the teacher yelling at him to get up. The look on his face was a mixture of shock, embarrassment and pure rage as he looked up at me from the floor. Bastard never messed with me again.”walkingdisaster
20. Beating His Bully At Baseball Was The Best Revenge He Could Have Asked For
“When I was 12 years old, a kid beat me up at a birthday party for reasons unknown. 4 years later, the kid is a pitcher (and a very good one at that) for his school in the playoffs. I was playing for the other team. After going 0-3 to start the game, I hit a walk-off home run off of him to advance to the next round. The kid actually started crying on the mound. I don’t think I’ve ever had a bigger smile than I did at that moment. Still, have the ball in my apartment at college.” french_prince

19. He Beat The Living Daylights Out Of His Mother’s Abuser And Never Looked Back
“Beating the crap out of the man who abused and beat my mother for 6 years. 7 years later and she still has no idea.
He was a vile, cynical, controlling excuse for a human being. He would call 20 times a day at least to ask her where she was, who she was with. He controlled her money, to the point where she had to hide cash away to have gas money for work. I found her battered and bruised one night, and called his a*s out on it. He got physical, so I swung. Managed to break his nose and cut him up fairly badly. My mom and I left that night and she got a house.
He went to jail a few months later for violating a protection order she had. He walked up to her and my sister in the middle of a church and started screaming. We went to the police station and the dumba*s actually followed us there. So he was arrested on the spot. Last I heard, he hasn’t been able to get a job because of all the stuff on his record from that.” cklly2013
18. He Thought “If You Can’t Beat Them, Pee In Something Of Theirs!”
“When I was a kid (probably 4 or 5 years old) I was watching Dumbo with my neighbor. The ‘elephants on parade part’ was scary as all heck to me back then, and I peed my pants. My neighbor told everyone in my Pre-K class and would not stop calling me the ‘pants-peer’ for weeks. Finally, one day I slept over at her house and took a pair of her pants out her closet, put them on, and peed in them. I woke her up to show her, and that’s the story of how I became the two-time pants-peer.” Chuck-E-Sleaze

17. The Youngest Brother Was Sick And Tired Of Taking Orders From Someone He No Longer Recognized as Family
“Okay. I have two older brothers. Eldest is a good person. The middle is a monster. He is a meth-addled felon. He has tortured my family for 20 years and I have taken the brunt of the assault as the only person willing to openly challenge him.
He stole my mother’s wedding rings, my grandmother’s car, and my tv – to name a few things. My family has decided to try again to welcome him back into their lives so I followed suit.
It’s Christmas 2013 – the best holiday celebrations I could never imagine. All is well. – Middle brother walks in the door to collect presents two days after celebrations – Strike one. The middle brother drops bag of drugs when he walks in the door – Strike two. Middle brother criticizes the eldest brother’s renovations and tells my grandmother she wasted her money. – Strike three.
In the car on the way home. Decide it is best to go back into town together so it saves someone a trip. Middle brother asks me for my passport. I say “no I can’t do that”. Middle brother concocts magical story where I have borrowed his ID to get into clubs when I was a teenager. Lies. I did not and would not. He says he needs it to get into a party. He’s 300lbs and 35 and would never be carded under any circumstances.
Middle brother differs to his standard method of persuasion and starts yelling and is getting increasingly loud and argumentative. I tell him that it is illegal and that it would be very bad for him if he gets caught.
There’s a line somewhere between asking and demanding something of someone – he crosses it. My heart races like it used to when I was a boy. When he used to follow my friends and I and beat the crap out of us with his friends. I remember him pulling me out of a lake where I almost drowned. But it’s not him anymore. The brother I knew is gone and there’s a total stranger directly behind me demanding the symbol of my liberty. Strike f*cking four. I tell him that if he mentions my passport again on the ride home, I will crane the steering wheel into a snowbank and beat him within an inch of his life.
I hear ‘Give me your passport’ in the voice of a man I don’t know, from a face I don’t recognize. Blood and adrenaline surge from my heart faster and more rapidly than I have ever felt. We pull into a parking lot, I open my door and wait patiently until that ass works up the courage to fight me.
He steps out and yells something I don’t hear. I tell him that I’ll give him one more chance to get back in the car without saying a word about my passport ever again. He says ‘passport’ with a wily grin and expects me to be the same cowering boy that I used to be. The same kid who loved him and adored him and wanted nothing else but to be just like him.
I connect the quickest and hardest fist I’ve ever thrown against another person directly onto his chin. Blood spurts out of his mouth with the second blow. He hits me twice above and below my right eye. I completely lose my crap and wail on the left side of his face until it is a broken and bloody ruin.
If you’re reading this, middle brother – F*ck you.”” mildlyfunnycommenter
16. Students Already Have A Hard Time Financially, But This Guy Just Made It That Much Worse
“My college roommate had a sketchy friend he would invite over. My textbook was stolen the weekend before my final. I went to the bookstore and found the book. I had notecards that I used as bookmarks still in the book. I texted my roommate’s friend and made up a story that the bookstore was going to press charges unless he gave the money back. He confessed over the phone and told me to meet him at his place to get the money.
When I got there he was smoking up. After taking the money I poured everything over his head and told him to never come to my place ever again.” [deleted]
15. This Man’s Revenge Meant Driving His Ex Closer and Closer To The Edge Of Insanity
“My ex cheated on me, moved out but moved out slowly over time, which meant I still lived with a lot of her stuff. Some of her clothes were left in the closet. I cut teeny tiny corners off of every sleeve, but barely enough to be noticeable. You’d have to think you were going insane to notice it…but then again, over time, each sleeve did look…somewhat off. She eventually asked me about it months later. I denied everything. I regret nothing.” mikelovenotwar
14. When He Got To Wrestle His Pestering Peer, He Took Full Advantage Of All The Painful Moves
“There was the kid in Jr. High that was always in my sh*t. Not a bully, but just 2 parts jerk and 1 part b*tch. Constantly trolling me, following me around talking sh*t. I tried turning the other cheek, being nice and stuff like that, but it just was not working.
Fast forward to high school, we are both on the wrestling team. I’m like one weight class above him, so we have lots and lots of close contact and he was still being a d*ck.
Double leg take down. Scooped that jerk’s head up in the air and dented the mat with him. Coach got p*ssed and made me do extra cardio after practice. Felt really freaking good.”” J_G_B
13. She Made Sure Her Ex-Boyfriend Never Forgot To Treat A Girl With The Utmost Respect
“In 4th-grade gym, I discovered heartbreak, revenge, and victory all in one class period.
Moments before class had started, my ‘boyfriend’ dumped me because I was too weird. There I sat in disbelief and sadness, and he just ran around like nothing had happened. We were put on opposite teams, only making the chasm between us greater.
Now, I am possibly the worst person at sports, wiffleball being no exception. I stepped up to the orange rubber plate, the bat heavy in my hands. The ex was pitching and called out to everyone in the outfield:
‘Don’t worry about this one, she can’t hit anything.’
I was embarrassed. I was heartbroken. Mostly, I was p*ssed. I said nothing, watching as he casually cocked back his arm. His eyes gleamed as the ball flew from his grip, careening towards me. I raised my bat and swung with all of my measly strength. The Wiffle ball met my bat with a dull, plastic WHACK. Next, the Wiffle ball met the Ex’s balls, square on. I watched as he crumpled to the floor, a wailing heap. My team cheered for me as I ran around the bases, greeting me with high fives as I cleared home. It was beautiful.” [deleted]
12. His Grandfather Found The Jerk Who Messed With His Windshield
“So my grandfather was driving and an obviously drunk man threw a rock and shattered his windshield. My grandfather talked to him and told him ‘If you give me your real number, I’ll only have you pay for half of the windshield or we can figure something out.’ The guy turned out to give him a fake number. A year later, my grandfather picks up a guy from Park & Ride (carpooling), and he happens to be the man that shattered his windshield. They’re driving on the freeway and the guy doesn’t recognize him. He’s being rude and talking on his phone. My grandpa asks to see his phone and throws it out the window. The guy freaks out and my grandpa goes ‘Remember me?’ He then made him get out of the car.” thetimewizard
11. He Taught His Thieving Comrad Never To Take Something That Isn’t His
“Canadian air cadets, summer camp, got picked on and things stolen from by one other cadet with issues for the duration of the camp. Was allowed to go buy sundries at a local Pharmacy once a week. On the final day of camp, we did precision parade drills for friends, family, dignitaries, etc. Sort of like graduating from boot camp. A formal event where we were expected to be at our best. Swapped the contents of a package of Chiclets for a package of Feen-a-mint (laxative gum). Sure enough bully takes the gum as I opened the package in front of him. A while later we are called up for drill. Since it was hot and in full uniform if we experienced exhaustion or were about to faint we were to drop to one knee and wait till we were taken out of formation. He and one other guy dropped to one knee partway through. I don’t know if he sh*t himself but I like to think he did.” vog1
10. This Student Taught His Awful Teacher A Lesson He’ll Soon Never Forget
“There was a teacher that I hated in middle school and he hated me just as much. One day I noticed that one of the magazines in our classroom had his address on it. I wrote it down and waited until summer vacation, so it would be less suspicious. I went to Borders and got a bunch of magazine subscription inserts and had a close friend who went to another school fill them out with his information. I checked the bill me later and sent them out. When I got back to school the next year, I could tell he suspected me but couldn’t prove it and I was happy because I didn’t have any classes with him anymore.”” -eDgAR-
9. He Used The Same Tactics His Bullies Did To Get Them To Stop Being Jerks And It Worked!
“Back in High School, the senior football players egged my dog (she was outside), house, and car. I had a few bros over and we ended up inviting some of the prettier girls from my school over. Football players didn’t approve of them being at my house and drove by egging and yelled ‘F you’ at me. They also egged the girl’s cars that were at my house. I felt embarrassed that this happened to them at my house. I knew which car they drove because of the yelling idiot and recognized the car. My friends and I hopped in my car and bought around 100 eggs to take our revenge.
We hit the driver’s house first, and all of his friend’s cars parked around the house. Then we went out looking for them. Ended up meeting them on your average 2-way street, leaned out the windows and absolutely pelted them while we were both heading opposite ways. They got out and yelled, and I stuck my middle finger out the window and we rode into the distance. They didn’t cause any problems to the girls or myself after that.” billnyethesciencepie
8. He Was Stiffed $20 But Makes The Other Guy Pay For It Every Year
“I have done this multiple times but here is the most recent story.
So I was coming back from this road trip with a few friends and holy crap, there was a Pretty Lights show ( my fave band) on the way home! So I immediately buy the cheapest tickets available, which came in a package of 4. It cost $40 for each ticket, but the face value was $55. Anyways, 2 of them went to my friends, and with no time to lose (the show was starting in 2 hours), I posted an ad on craigslist asking for $60 for it.
It wasn’t long before I got a message. The guy sent me a text and agreed to meet me in front of the venue in order to pay for the ticket. When we met, it was kind of my fault because I didn’t check, but he shorted me $20. I was furious. What kind of jerk rips off somebody who hooks you up with a last-minute front-row ticket, right?
So,I have his phone number. For every holiday I wait. Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years. I like to think he’s having a good time, hanging out with his buddies or family. It is then that I post an ad on craigslist in highly populated cities (San Francisco, New York, Detroit, etc.) casual encounters m4m that says something like:
‘Bicurious twink looking to suck first d*ck.’
I write a convincing message that ends with ‘send your pics to 123-456-7890 and I will pick the sexiest one.’
I wait a day, and take it down, for I am merciful.” burpingtiger
7. His Story Required Some Research And Cash, But Was Absolutely Priceless In The End
“I used to go to a public high school where the majority of students were low to middle-class Italian origin kids of immigrants (90% +). Tough going to say the least. When I was in high school I used to get bullied by a guy called Renaldo. We had a few scraps, either verbally or fistfights over the years. I was always the type of guy who wouldn’t take other people’s crap. When I went through puberty and became one of the tallest, largest guys in school, he somehow always managed to give me a hard time. It was a tough time but in a way, I paid my dues early and learned from a stern father that if people punch you, you punch back and you punch harder and you’ll know if they are men or not.
As luck would have it Renaldo ended up in the same college I went to and he always managed to somehow, someway be an ass to me. What made things worse is that we fell for the same girl, Andrea who eventually became my girlfriend of over 4 years. Everyone knew he had feelings for her and that it killed him she was with me and not him. He always tried to ‘seduce’ her with random calls and emails. Being the son of a wealthy father who owned his own construction company, he always had nice cars, lots of money, a bunch of crap that I didn’t have and over the years worked hard to earn coming from a low-income family that was having problems making ends meet.
He was a constant issue the first year of my relationship and we had several conflicts. Years later, after college and shortly after I broke up with Andrea, I received an e-mail from him out of the blue. I never corresponded with him (Facebook didn’t exist back then) and he went out of his way and told me in an epic letter (which went far too long) and swore at me in excess and used terrible English (no wonder he never finished college and dropped out to work with daddy) that ‘No one liked me in college and to F off.’
I haven’t seen him in well over 2 years, and we didn’t have any real friends in common. As a way of keeping my cool, I didn’t want him to have the satisfaction to get me mad, I never responded to his emails (he sent several).
However, I couldn’t let his taunting go on without consequences.
So I went online and Googled his name. After searching around a bit, I easily found a complete profile of him regarding his career, where he worked and what type of work it was. His father passed away recently and he now owned his father’s business and had a team of employees working for him. I spied a bit more and hung onto the address of his place of employment for several weeks while I plotted.
One day, I proceeded to go into a local adult shop and I purchased the largest, fattest, floppiest toy that I could find along with some lubricant and I went home, and wrote a special note for him to be included with said contents. I boxed up his naughty goodies in a standard box that couldn’t be traced back to me and sent it using priority mail that required him to specifically sign for it.
The note read, ‘Since you have so much time to search out people who never gave a crap about you to begin with, I figured you’d have enough time to go f*ck yourself with this!’
One of our mutual acquaintances dropped me an email a few days later. This acquaintance worked for Renaldo during his ‘internship’ and apparently the package arrived while they were preparing to head out for a team lunch on a Friday. He was very excited to get the box opened since Renaldo thought it was something he ordered online. He was expecting something totally different. Renaldo opened the box in front of a number of co-workers and instead of whatever he ordered, he pulls out….a giant black floppy adult toy. Priceless.” chabaz
6. Goofing Around With Someone When They’re Operating Heavy Machinery Is An Open Invitation For A Losing Battle
“I was out snow-blowing the driveway one day. Some dude who is a friend of my sister’s walks up to me and throws a snowball at me. He then gave that look like ‘What are you gonna do about it man?’ and laughed, putting his hands up as if to go, ‘Ohhhhhhh!!’
Dude? Do you not see this large snow-moving device I am pushing around?
Only took several seconds to completely coat him in snow, and the look of defeat on his face was glorious!” [deleted]
5. He Decided To Get Revenge In A Rather…Crappy Way
“Back in the summer of ’09, my girlfriend and I were going pretty strong, anyway I found out she was hooking up with this guy on the side. She admitted it and said she was sorry and I broke up with her. Anyway, I didn’t know the guy but it remembered his name. One night at a party, a few months later, I got introduced to a dude who turned out to be him. I’m not a guy to hold a grudge generally but this was something else. I didn’t want to do anything to him but when I walked into a bedroom to make a phone call, there he was passed out on the bed.
I didn’t know what to do but I knew I had too good an opportunity to pass it up. I was pretty not sober at the time and the first thing I thought of was to take a dump on him. I passed it off as a stupid idea but I couldn’t think of anything else so I went with it. I left the party just after and I haven’t seen or heard from him since. Not a day goes by I don’t think about it. Needless to say I haven’t told anyone about this in real life. Vengeance is a dish best-served sh*tty.”” Quadration
4. In This Kid’s Case, The Only Way To Get Even Was To Get Messy
“Long story short, a kid I was friends with hit me in the balls 3 times in one night. He then called me a ‘wee baby’ and got in my face. He tried to make me flinch by half-swinging at me. I didn’t flinch, but instead head-butted him with everything I had. Crushed his nose, blood pouring out of his face. I had a tiny cut in the center of my forehead, with one line of blood running down my face. I looked freaking psychotic, but badass. Also, f*ck you for that David.” Get_It_Reddit
3. They Made Sure Justice Was Served Not Only For Them, But For The Entire Town
“A crummy repair shop in Moab, UT messed up our car which left us stranded in a nearby National Park. We called and demanded they tow the vehicle in, and while they said they’d come get us they never did. When we talked with park rangers they were quite familiar with the shop: the biggest in town, and with a terrible reputation.
We were on our honeymoon, and had more time on our hands than I imagine most travelers do. We went to the shop, demanded a full refund, and when they refused we sat out front on the curb in our camp chairs for two days with homemade protest signs. I was overwhelmed with the support we got from locals, who honked and waved, stopped and chatted with us and shared their own stories of horror. The owner called the cops on us, but the joke was on him! We’d already notified the police we’d be protesting, and we’re well within our rights in doing so.
In the end the shop owner refunded all our money and left visibly distressed when we told him that even with the refund, we weren’t sure we were ready to leave town. Eventually, we did, but not before filing complaints with the Better Business Bureau and every review site we could find. They’d already been booted from the Chamber of Commerce.
We ended up becoming friends with an awesome local mechanic and having a great story to tell. Justice was served! And without a tinge of guilt.”” serendidade
2. This Bully Learned Never To Underestimate His Prey
“When I was 11 years old, I was bullied by a 12-year-old boy. He would steal things from my lunch every day. I got sick of it and decided to do something about it. One day, I brought a super hot pepper in my lunch and pretended to be really excited about it. Sure enough, the boy comes over, snatches it from my hand and pops it in his mouth.
He practically exploded in pain. Writhing around the floor, unable to handle the heat.
I calmly looked at him and told him that drinking a nice glass of cold water would help immensely. He did so. This promptly magnified the pain 100x.
He never stole food from me again.
I regret nothing.” i_am_not_a_number
1. She Put Her Finances On The Line, And Wasn’t About To Give Up So Easily
“When I used to be a cheerleader, we were organizing a trip to Florida (from the UK) to do some training and to have an awesome holiday. I took charge of organizing the flights and asked everyone if they were OK paying me back if I bought all the flights together. Yeah I know, bad idea.
Anyway, needless to say one girl changed her mind about going because she was starting a new job, and just before we were due to go I got a handwritten note in the post from her mother (we were in our twenties) saying that she never agreed to me booking a flight on her behalf and that she wasn’t liable to pay me because she had decided not to go.
I was in a bit of a panic because I didn’t have her home address, and she just ignored all my calls and emails. I wanted to take her to court but to do that you have to have their address in order to serve the papers.
After spending ages trying to ask around if people knew her address, and even trying to get her friends to give it to me without success, I stayed up all night figuring out a way to figure out where she lived.
It literally took me all night but I managed to hack into her Hotmail account and then her PayPal account, which led me to her home address I could have just taken the money from her account, but I did want to do this as by-the-book as possible…
She turned up in court accompanied by her mother, and they tried to use Facebook photos to prove that I had used her ticket to take someone else in her place. I came armed with a printout of the airline terms which clearly stated that the tickets were non-transferable.
Judgment was swift. The victory was mine.”” Kayleighswift
