I've heard some revenge stories that can best be described as 'Cold'. Some people have been hurt and betrayed so badly that they will do anything to ensure that the person who made them feel that way get what's coming to them.
"My boyfriend at the time cheated on me and the girl he cheated with made a point of going round and telling everyone in our little town. It humiliated me. I made a fake Facebook account pretending to be a boy, added her and talked to her for 8 months becoming ‘her confidante’. She told me all her secrets. I then got to the stage where I asked her to send me naked pictures; and she did. The pictures got put all over town, along with print screens of her secrets in message. She got kicked out of school, her family disowned her. It ruined her life – she got so much abuse over it she had to move to a different town where last I heard she’s unemployed and living in a dump because her parents disowned her and she has no money of her own. She has no idea who ‘the boy’ really was.
I don’t regret it one bit."
Wow! I'm more of a 'vengeance is mine, sayeth The Lord chic' but sometimes I've wanted to pay someone back so badly it kept me awake at night. The only time I remember 'attempting' revenge was this:
Beginning from first week at a law firm one of my colleagues would always play dumb and make me explain things over and over again. If we were asked to do something he'll come to me to explain and thereby voice out my ideas. Soon I realized that before I'd turn anything in he had already gone to meet our superiors with MY IDEAS. That always left me falling short and made me look like I was slacking and also like a big olodo. So, I started telling him crap. I would tell him a whole load of Bullsh*t and he would fall for it and go meet our bosses with the bullsh*t. Soon they began to reprimand and ridicule him. It took him a while to figure I'd been messing with him and he never tried to cross me after that.
My friend was dating this married guy several years ago and when he felt he was done with her he wanted to dump her like a nasty habit. Babe wasn't having any of it because (after all) he was the one who toasted her and persuaded her to date him. She befriended his wife and became so close to her that she became a regular house guest of theirs. She ended up collecting a huge sum of money from him to buy her silence.
So guys, has anyone ever crossed you so badly that you couldn't wait for God's vengeance and decided to take matters into your own hands? How did it go?
Do you believe in waiting for Karma or would you rather plot revenge?
