Love, sex, and relationships can be beautiful, life-affirming experiences for all parties involved … until they end. There’s plenty of no-good, cheating, lying, downright nasty dogs out there on both the male and female teams, and if and/or when you eventually get burned by one, there’s one surefire way to make yourself feel better without breaking the law or spending a billion dollars on therapy: REVENGE.
There are countless outlets for enacting vengeance on a cheating lover or spouse, some healthy, and some … not so much. Naturally, the internet provides hundreds of ways to inflict humiliation. In October of last year, an e-mail started going around that supposedly documented the end of a relationship between “Brad” and “Elizabeth.” Here’s a short excerpt from jilted lover “Brad:”
“You did a stupid thing huh? No … doing long division and forgetting to carry the one is ‘a stupid thing.’ Mixing in a red sock with a load of whites is ‘a stupid thing.’ Blowing some guy in a bathroom for 45 minutes while I sit at the bar wondering if you’re taking so long because you ate too much bran that morning isn’t as much a ‘stupid thing’ as it is grounds for permanent removal from my social calendar.”
He went on to end the whole thing by adding: “PS. I BCC’d about 100 people on this e-mail.”
E-mail is just the beginning. Have some leftover naked pictures from a wild night of now-extinguished passion? Post those babies! Or if you don’t have photos, just venting about what happened to a million strangers might help soothe the wound. There are plenty of online revenge forums, too. Try screwedcentral.com, cheaterdb.com, manhaters.com, or thepayback.com, to name a few. Some of these sites also help with exacting revenge, offering to send dead flowers to your ex, selling prank “gifts,” and hosting community forums where you can post the name and info of the philanderer or ask for help in getting even.
Revenge may be sweet, but remember: karma can sure be a bitch, too. Sometimes it just takes longer to happen.
