Sometimes Simple Is Best
<< Return To Article List
Letís be honest, we have all done it. Although Iím a big fan of the complicated and clever revenge prank sometimes simplicity is the key and on the odd occasion, that simple venting can have an added bonus, like this little story I heard from Australia recently.
Young love. It is the very definition of a rollercoaster. One minute you are completely in love and going to be together forever and the next you canít stand each other. One Aussie girl found herself in exactly that position at university when she found out that her boyfriend she had had since school had been cheating on her with another girl. All three of them were friends from the same course at university and the poor girl was beside herself. Not only had she lost her first love she had also lost one of her best friends and all this in those testing first terms where you are trying to learn how to get along as an adult without your Mum and Dad.
Understandably she was angry. These were people she had trusted with her deepest secrets and who she had relied upon to be her support through the teen/adult transition so it probably isnít a surprise that she wanted some revenge.
Now as we have discussed before revenge comes in many different forms. For some people the sophisticated tactics drawn out over a long time work the best, but for others it just a case of needing to let it all out. She went for the simplistic approach.
Pretty much every night at about the same time she would call up her former friend who was now a confirmed item with her ex and shout down the phone at the her. She doesnít even remember what it was she was shouting but she knew it felt good. In fact cancel that...it felt GREAT! If she hung up she would just call back and vent to her voicemail, letting go of all her rage down the phone and finally starting to feel a little bit better.
Now more often than not the story would end there, but on this occasion there is another layer. You see she was ringing so frequently that the new girlfriend started to just completely turn her phone off in the evenings. Rather than be reminded of what she had done and face up to it she took the cowardly route of switching off and pretending nothing had happened. Now in some ways this is fine and a sensible way to avoid confrontation, but it didnít end so well for her.
You see this was exam time at the university and when your phone is also your alarm clock things can get a little messy. With her phone switched off to avoid the abuse she slept through her major exam of the semester and lost 75% on that module. A great bonus for the wronged ex girlfriend who says after that she never felt the need to ring again!
So there you have it, a great moral tale for all sorts of reasons but for the most part donít mess around with your friendís significant other...it can go wrong in far more ways than you imagined!
I have taken on a complicated revenge tactic. It's so hard for even myself to keep up with. I often wish i would have kept it simple. My tactics are working wonderfully, but it is a lot of work to keep up. It's also costing me a great deal of money, but it's all worth it. I am the happiest I have been in a long time. I have a joyful reason to get out of bed every day.
I'm curious about your elaborate revenge tactic !
Could you tell us more ? My ex deserves only the very cruelest, would love to hear more
I live in central Kansas seeking revenge on my former attorney who by a bad legal move cost me 16,000. Looking for some one in Chicago land to help.
Thanks if you know someone or not
LET ME IN ON IT...I WANNA TRY IT ON MY DEADBEAT STEPSON
