What was your best instance of exacting revenge on someone?

Anyone? Someone did something to you (stole, slept with your gf, etc), and you seeked out revenge. What did you do?

In a high school gov't class we played "government" and a few friends and I were in the Senate. There was a girl that wasn't too bright that was in the House. We teased her pretty bad. She wrote a bill that said something like, "Seeing how the Senate are all gurks, it is hereby...." We amended it to correct her spelling of "jerks" and sent it back to committee.

Not really revenge, but it still makes me laugh.

There was this total prick in college who got a couple of my friends kicked out of school for running a secret dorm bar during the weekends. He didn't do it because he felt it was wrong. He did it to be a prick and openly bragged about it. A friend of mine knew where he parked one summer and noticed that he had his windows cracked (a common practice in Memphis summers). My friend went to the local sporting goods store and bought a vial of deer lure and emptied it in his back seat on a nice hot day. I never heard about his reaction, but the next semester I swore he had a different car.

We also pulled a similar prank on another friend by putting an open container of "Catfish Charlie" in the cab of his truck that he left unlocked. The results were less permanent than deer lure but the smell of that stuff (cheese, liver, etc.) makes shit smell like Chanel No. 5.

I used to work selling Home Audio for a major retail A/V chain. Long story short - The store manager was a moody prick who liked speed. One day he crossed me for the last time, so I hid a small digital camcorder in his office and eventually caught him doing a few lines on his desk. Corporate HR loved my anonymous tape sent to them. Needless to say, he no longer worked there any more.

I slept with this guy's girlfriend and sister after he stole some stuff out of my room...shame it wasn't at the same time though and it really wasn't out of revenge, but it's nice to say anyway.

I don't know if it's "revenge" per se, but a good story none the less...

I can't stand people skipping class then getting the notes from people right before an exam. If I take the time to go to class and take good notes to do well on a test, I don't consider it fair for someone else to sleep in and then reap the rewards.

So... I was taking a Geology class in college, not a particularily difficult class, and there was a guy who almost NEVER went to class. He wanted to study for the midterm together, which I knew meant "teach me everything you learned the past 4 weeks." I told him I study better on my own and he asked if he could borrow my notes. DING! I told him he could get them later that night. I then spent about an hour plus writing down the wrong notes. Completely making up rock types (igneous, sedimentary, metabalphic, creatinzic...) and threw in all sorts of wonderful historical information. The earth was formed when the sun froze, 80% of California will become an island within 20 years due to shifting of the San Andreas fault, Heleotite is the only rock made of gas... you get the idea. I removed the middle portion of my actual notes and stuck these in their place for him to photocopy.

Walking to the test together, a friend and I quizzed each other and this other guy was with us... I asked questions and the dude had MEMORIZED all the retarded crap I made up... never caught on.

I never found out how he did on his test, but just asking him as we walked to our test what rock was made of gas and hearing him answer made it all worth while.

I don't know if this would be revenge or not but when I'm pissed at my husband, I hide his pillow. I go to bed about 10:ish and he stays up till midnight or so. This gives me plenty of time to hide his pillow and fall asleep before he comes upstairs. Since I'm asleep, he can't bug me to help him find his pillow so he ends up sleeping on a wadded up bunch of dirty clothes off the floor. In the morning, he asks me if I know where his pillow is and of course I say no. Later in the day I email him at work and tell him I found it in the laundry and that he must have put it there by mistake. The really sad thing is that he falls for it ever time.

It takes alot to piss me off. Sometimes the person isn't worth getting even with, but in the events that I did....I go all out. I"ll post a couple tame ones, because some stuff should never go public.

I 'got biblical' few women/girls that the 'offenders' were infatuated with. It wasn't really a spiteful thing, as much as a double wammy. Hot women, plus the ability to go, 'HA!'....too good to give up.

I screwed a few people professionally. I didn't ruin their careers, but I made sure that they didn't cross me again and/or didn't step out of line. (A story that is known on here....I made a raging manager attend sensitivity training for MONTHS, and she lost a month of salary) Other times I simply made the people look like the asses they were. I always had the punishment fit their crime...that was the fun part.

ThorSimpson and his rock story is one of the funniest things I've read in a long time. I really would have liked to have seen that dude's reaction when he got his exam results. hahaha. Wow.

When I was in high school, I interviewed for a job at a video rental store- this was back in the stone age way before DVD, I didn't even have a laserdisc player yet. Anyways, I thought I completely hit it off with the owner, she said I was the most knowledgable person they'd interviewed thus far. I had a boring office job at the time and loved movies, so this would have been a dream job for me. I was looking forward to getting paid to talk about movies all day and rent everything for free.
Well, I never got called back. I found out who did get my job- this dumb kid who thought he knew a lot about movies but didn't- he'd actually done some minor work on a few small films but only because he had an uncle in the business. Myself having no worthy relation in my family to get me ahead, this royally pissed me off.
Soooo, I later saw that he was bringing new releases to the school library, hooking 2 VCRs together to make copies. All the VCRs they had there were mono, and he didn't have a Macrovision stabilizer, so I can only imagine how crappy they came out. *I* had TWO Hi-Fi stereo VCRs at home and a Macrovision-buster, so I could make good-quality VHS copies- this was when new releases were priced at $89.99, so I felt the movie studios were asking me to copy their tapes instead of buying them. (I moved on to laserdisc a few years later and bought many overpriced discs then, so I think I've since paid them back for my dastardly deed.)
Anyways, he had the VCRs hooked up in a back room and running unattended, so I snuck in, paused the recording deck, ejected the tape of a brand-new movie that had just come out that week at $89.99 list price, opened the tape up and SPIT on it (having just drank a Coke) and rubbed it all over the magnetic tape! I put it back in the VCR and resumed copying and ran away before anyone saw me. Knowing this guy he probably never noticed anything wrong with the tape, but hopefully it caused some amount of damage.

It wasn't exactly revenge, more like you're really annoying so we're going to mess with you a little. Anyway, my friend and I went into his dorm room and file shared his computer with the entire floor so anyone could look through his files. After we discovered nudie pictures of his girlfriend on there, we shared our knowledge with the floor. Good stuff. I told him about this a couple years later...the look on his face...priceless. They're engaged or married by now I'm guessing.

On an actual revenge story, this isn't me. But I had a friend who parked in someone else's spot. This other person got that car towed instead of asking them to move. Anyway, this person got pissed, skipped class, slashed the car's tire and watched from their window as the person came back and found the mess. Fortunately, this person has never been angry with me, cause that was a bit more than I would ever approve of.

Some guys I knew in college once enacted some revenge on my friend's behalf. This crazy (but sorta sweet) girl was causing him all sorts of grief and already ruined a ton of his stuff. The friends found her car, took a dump on the hood, and pelted it with rotten eggs.

I think it started as a drunken dare. Who needs enemies when you have friends like that!

I see this as being more playful than revenge, but in the past I've farted on my wife's pillow after we've had arguments. On the same note though I do believe she has used my toothbrush to clean the toilet bowl.

As far as revenge goes there is a guy at work who's a total a-hole and I've been wanting to bring in one of our babies dirty diapers and wedging it between his desk and the wall. My only fear is there are only a handful of coworkers that also have infant children so it might be too easy for him to figure out who did it.

Tuesday I was driving around and they posed this question to callers of a radio show.

1 caller claimed a guy raped his sister. Then days later the rapists grandmother died. He said him and his friends dug her back up like a week later and put her on the front lawn and watched from a distance the guys discovery.

Another caller said something about hey smell my finger, it's your sister.

Another was a guy whos girlfriend cheated. She had a soft core porn site she was starting and he had tons of pictures. He mailed them to her unsuspecting parents.
