Payback is the best form of revenge. Even though we shouldn’t be vengeful, in certain scenarios it feels too good not to get revenge. This is especially true the more we’re hurt by our loved ones. This Reddit user told the internet about one of their confessions involving payback.
They started the story by telling the internet about their family life. “My father is a diagnosed Narcissist and overall horrible person. My mother, my siblings, and I lived for years in a very abusive environment that I don’t know if we will ever fully recover from. About five years ago shit hit the fan with him and he left my mother for his much younger secretary. He told me before he told her and expected me to inform her he was leaving. He also left her with a ton of his debt. I began the process of removing him from my life.”
They continued to say, “one night after maybe one too many glasses of wine I was feeling particularly angry about all the years of shit my family had to deal with because of him. So I posted his phone number on Craigslist and a message implying he was a chick looking for a good time.”
That’s pretty decent revenge. It doesn’t particularly hurt anyone, and it’s mostly innocent. Then, “I later got an email from his secretary, the one he had run off with, through the anonymous Craigslist system bitching out who she assumed was a random Craigslist poster for “posting the wrong phone number.” Little did they know, it was the angry son (via Reddit).
