Whenever you’ve been truly wronged, screwed over beyond belief, it can be extremely difficult to take the high road and not plot some form of devious revenge. We’ve all been there and we’ve all succumbed to the temptation a time or two.
Let’s be honest, sometimes sinking down to that level can just be so incredibly satisfying. Reddit asked its users about the most ridiculous acts of petty revenge they’ve ever committed and we cannot stop laughing at their responses.
1. reloadingnow‘s coworker is going to have a frustrating day.
Speeding up a coworker’s double click speed and watch him squirm when his normal double clicking speed isn’t working.
2. WhereTheFatRolls is a clever asshole.
I once had a colleague I hated (he was very condescending and really arrogant), so I put an extra Bluetooth receiver in his computer for a computer mouse and kept the mouse in my drawer. I would just open my drawer and it would fuck his shit right up. Kept it going for like 2 months. He was about to murder the world when I thought I better stop.
3. Landlords are the worst aren’t they, coffeeislife_SA?
Listing a Playstation 4 as brand new on multiple second hand goods websites, for $50. I used my old landlord’s phone number as the contact number, ‘cos fuck that guy.
He had to change numbers.
4. SailingOnFishlessSea seems to be enjoying married life.
My wife is very picky about the mugs she has for different hot drinks: Tall mugs for coffee, wide mugs for tea, dainty cups for fruit teas.
When she’s being irritating and asks for a cuppa she gets very plain, boring builders mugs and I delight at the mild irritation it brings.
5. Dween_Deedles knows the way to a dog’s heart.
My boyfriend’s uncle and 7 year old cousin live upstairs from us. His cousin has a tendency to be a little brat. I was holding her yorkie when she came over and yanked her from my arms. No more than 20 minutes later I went out and bought some dog treats. Everyday when I come home I give the dog a treat. Now the dog waits by our door instead of her’s.
6. Literally, my biggest pet peeve, failing_forwards.
I had a guy in school who would always skip class and then ask for my notes. We had a group project worth almost 40% of our grade and he did zero work, and the prof told me tough luck. Instead of just saying no the next time he asked for notes, I took the low road and began giving him edited versions.
I would leave items out of lists, incorrectly define things or just straight up write stuff that makes no sense.
An example of the crap I would put in: To calculate return on investment, subtract your yearly earnings from your current bank balance, then multiply by Echer’s factorial (4.22).
If he had even once bothered to crack the text he would have figured it out, but that apparently would have been too much effort for him.
He retook that class.
7. Link-to-the-Pastiche and his coworkers are pure evil.
We had a guy in our office take a crap in the bathroom every day after lunch and it would stink up the whole office. The manager asked everyone who needed to vacate their bowels to please use the lobby bathroom since our office was small and we only had the one bathroom. He didn’t listen. Fortunately, he was like clockwork so 5 minutes before he went in I took all the toilet paper…. that’s right. I forced the man to live with a dirty ass.
8. sippistar won’t be taking a backseat any more.
My co-worker was always complaining and always lazy with his work, yet he got recognition for the simplest thing he would actually do. He also took credit for a full days work that was pretty much all me. I always got ignored. So one day, I came in early and I unplugged his Ethernet jack just barley to the point it looked like it was still plugged into his computer. For 4 hours he couldn’t do any work. Meanwhile, I got my work done, and he couldn’t take any credit for it since everyone knew he didn’t have Internet access. Half way through the day, he left on break, I plugged it back in and bam, just like this it was working. By then, he couldn’t claim my work, and I begun to get noticed more.
9. frenchjets is disgusting.
I feel terrible about this as an adult… But one time when I was a kid, I peed on my older brother’s toothbrush because he was being a dick to me.
10. Tsquare43 is an evil genius.
In college (early 1990’s), I lived with several guys in a suite. One liked to call me “chunky A”, yes, I was chubby (I still am, but I have lost a lot of weight and I am continue to loose more). I asked him politely but firmly to not call me that. He laughed and did it more.
I proceeded to call up every info-merrical I saw on TV to send him baldness cures (he was loosing his hair), Tourist information from places like Iowa and Nebraska, had information sent to him about adult bed wetting, etc.
He accused me of it, and I told him, why would I do such a thing to him? I kept it up for 2 years while he lived in the dorms. His junior year, he moved out to an off campus place. I found out where he lived and I waited a couple of months and started it all over again.
Yeah, I bombarded him with junk mail.
11. mnbowman is a savage, but we can’t blame him.
My girlfriend cheated on me, so we broke up obviously, and we had to go through the “exchanging all of our stuff from each other’s apartments” ordeal. She asked me to send pictures of everything of hers so she could tell me what she wanted back. One of the items of hers was my shower curtain. A few nights prior, i had 3 girls over to my apartment, and they were in my bathroom for a while which I thought was strange. Apparently they were taking topless pictures of each other in my bathroom because they sent me them to me after they left. The picture of these 3 topless girls was conveniently right in front of my exes shower curtain. So i sent dozens of pictures to my ex of all her stuff and one of them was “your shower curtain” and the attached picture was the one with 3 topless girls in front of her curtain. I’m not incredibly proud of what I did. It was incredibly petty, and probably over the line, but I was pretty pissed at the time.
12. Damn, we wouldn’t want to piss AR3Leatherworks off.
Someone in my office would always crush lunches with his gigantic ass lunch box. Either he ate bricks or lead, I don’t know, but I always came to the office fridge and found that my lunch was in pieces.
So, after three bouts of this, and numerous notes from myself and other colleagues, I carefully removed his lunch box, emptied the contents (a gigantic sandwich, a Twinkie, chips, some vegetable pieces, and a few other bits), and ran over them with my car. I carefully packed it back in, and put it back.
He kept his lunch in a cooler by his cube from then on.
13. RipleysBitch taught that man a glorious lesson.
A drunk guy harassed me on the tube one night in my way home. About two mins after his last “fucking stuck up bitch” he fell asleep. Deeply asleep. So I took out my lipstick (gorgeous coral colour) and drew all over his face. Yes, I may also have been drunk. I think I was trying to read my book with one eye closed to help me focus… yep. So I got off at Acton, and watched him snooze away down the Heathrow branch. Arsehole. I hope he woke up with lipstick all over his pillowcase and a pissed off missus.
14. Urtitimycaca is a mechanical mastermind.
My roomate used to leave his heater on full fucking blast when he would sleep and I’ll give you one guess who paid the electric bill. He would sometimes forget to turn it off for work which of course made me even more mad. One day I had enough. Instead of being an adult and asking him to turn it down and or off when he left I pulled the heater off the wall and unwired it. No shit he spent about 3 hours trying to figure out how to fix it. I was so satisfied when he couldn’t get it to work. He literally had to plug 2 wires back in.
15. Clever AF, JoeySalamander.
A guy at work pissed me off. I placed this Craigslist ad with his phone number. 2 free goats. Hablas espanol.
He spent the rest of the day getting calls every 15 minutes or so.
16. MusicOfTheAinur got the best revenge of all.
My sister posted a very anti-LGBT article on Facebook when the North Carolina bathroom bill was passed. She claimed she “no longer felt safe” shopping at Target if she might “be forced to use a bathroom” with a trans person. (The horror!)
So for her wedding the next month, I got her a Target gift card.
XOXO, Your very gay brother ♥
