Extreme Stories Of Revenge That Went TOO FAR
Here are some stories of revenge that went NUCLEAR!Stories
They say revenge is a dish best served cold. But sometimes the best revenge is served so hot, it’s downright nuclear! The following stories aren’t tales of funny, passive-aggressive sticky notes, or cute pranks to teach people a lesson. These are stories of life-destroying vengeance, and elaborate retribution; from devastating businesses to exposing cheaters in the most damming ways possible!
At some point, everyone with a sibling has found them annoying. But a select few can be downright evil, as a reddit user by the name of Ryan sadly discovered. Ryan had a twin called Sebastian. As they were growing up, Sebastian bullied Ryan mercilessly. But because Sebastian was the favorite, their parents turned a blind eye to it all.
Sebastian would put Ryan down, blame him for things, and have his friends pick on him. Already, Sebastian sounds like a super douche, but it was about to get much worse. When he was about 18, Ryan realized he was bisexual. But Ryan’s parents were strict conservatives, so when he began dating a boy called Daniel, he had to keep it secret.
Unfortunately, Sebastian spotted the two holding hands in public, and like the sad little snitch he was, he ran home to tell their parents. Not only were his parents mad, but Sebastian did everything in his power to convince them to kick Ryan out! And he succeeded. Homeless and cut off, Ryan was completely ostracized.
We roll forward about 10 years. Ryan and Daniel are happily married, living a wonderful life, when Ryan gets a call from one of the few family members he’s still in contact with. They’re at the hospital and don’t say much but ask Ryan to get there as soon as possible.
When he arrives, he’s greeted by his parents who, suspiciously, look really pleased to see him, along with his brother who’s lying in a hospital bed. It turned out, having lived a damagingly excessive lifestyle, Sebastian needed a new kidney urgently. The waiting list for a new kidney was longer than he had left, but Ryan, being his identical twin, would be a perfect match.
After all the hell he’d put Ryan through, he just expected him to give him a kidney? Well, Ryan was done being taken advantage of, and so he gave the most devastating answer possible: A simple “No”.
Shocked, Sebastian called in their parents, who begged Ryan to reconsider. He brutally reminded them of all the times they’d said nothing when Sebastian hurt him, and that they’d kicked him out for being who he was!
It was clear they didn’t care for any part of him, including his kidney! After that, he simply turned around and left. I don’t think there’s enough ice in the world to treat that burn.
Hard to Stomach
There is nothing worse than opening the work refrigerator, only to discover someone has stolen your lunch! Not even a threatening post-it note can dissuade some of these food thieves! But, for all the threats, some sandwich stealers learn the hard way that the lunch owners aren’t joking around.
Back in 2008, reddit user Gustavsen was working in a call center, and a really crappy call center at that. The rules were super strict, there was no ventilation, and the pay was so bad that many people resorted to stealing little things.
This apparently extended to staff lunches as well. It had gotten so bad that people would routinely spike some food with laxatives or bad milk to send a message, but not even that stopped the lunch thieves.
That was until, one day, Gustavsen heard that someone had put a box of food in the fridge with the label “Do Not Eat, Rat Poison Inside”. Thinking this was a joke, the lunch thief snuck in and gobbled down every last bite.
It wasn’t until later that afternoon, when a woman suddenly collapsed on the ground suffering from heavy internal bleeding, that they suddenly realized it hadn’t been a joke!
The unfortunate lunch thief was taken to hospital, and suffered long term damage to her digestive tract, kidneys, and liver! While the culprit was never identified, I doubt that lady ever stole another lunch!
Ever been to a big family gathering? They can be the worst, especially if you’re the butt of all the family jokes, like reddit user whydoyoureadnames, who I’ll call Max for this story, was. One of Max’s cousins, Randy, constantly picked on him and embarrassed him in front of everyone at family gatherings.
Sadly, the rest of the family just watched this happen, never once telling Randy to back down or stop, even when he went too far. Randy seemed to have it all, nice house, nice wife, nice kids, but still he felt the need to pick on Max. Pretty sad for a grown man.
And so, one day, when Max saw Randy in the street, with his arms around a woman who definitely wasn’t his wife, Max decided to get a better look with his camera. He took out his phone and got several pictures of the couple holding hands, hugging, smooching, tongues and all!
Then he had all the photos printed out and waited patiently for the next inevitable family gathering. With everyone around the dinner table, Randy was about to start bullying Max again when, suddenly, Max dropped all the photos onto the table.
The entire family, including Randy’s wife and kids, slowly realized what they were looking at, and then all hell broke loose. There was screaming, fighting, crying, and Max was kicked out! But it was Randy who ended up paying the ultimate price.
In the months that followed, Randy’s wife divorced him, he lost custody of his kids, and, just to add a cherry on top of this revenge sundae, Max got married! Well, something tells me Randy wasn’t invited.
Car Wars: Revenge of the S**t
Being a single parent is hard, no doubt about it! But when you’re also on a limited income, things like rent and bills can really restrict your options, as reddit user Golera1 will tell you. They were renting a small, old, drafty apartment. They were quite content and had no complaints, until their nightmare neighbor moved in.
He had a car he treated like his baby, which he’d made multiple modifications to. So many, the engine needed time to warm up, and so for 10-15 minutes every day he’d let it run, releasing mega plumes of thick, nasty exhaust fumes.
Golera wouldn’t have had an issue with this, but this guy was assigned a parking space right outside their 4-year-old’s bedroom, and the fumes were making the kid feel sick.
So, one day Golera kindly asked if he could warm the car up somewhere else in the lot. At this, the driver went berserk, screaming at Golera, telling them he didn’t care about the kid and that he wasn’t going to move it. Shocked, Golera left. They knew an official complaint wouldn’t go anywhere, and they didn’t have the funds to move.
That's when they began plotting, on a budget. The next day they bought a squeezy bottle of Gatorade and broke a couple of eggs into it. Then they spotted some fresh dog doodoo, which they added in and then left the concoction out in the sun for a few days to mature.
Finally, in the early hours of the morning, on a day that promised to be scorching hot, Golera took the Satan soup and snuck up to the car. The car was old enough to have those little triangle vent windows, which the driver had left open.
And so, Golera sprayed the contents of the bottle into the car, coating everything the vile liquid would reach. They then tossed the empty bottle, snuck back inside, and went to sleep.
A few hours later, they were awoken by the sweet, harmonious cries of the rude neighbor. When Golera looked out, the driver was gagging next to his car, trying desperately to figure out where in his car the vomit-inducing smell was coming from!
He grabbed a bucket of soap and water and began scrubbing the seats hard, and soon people began to gather round. Realizing there was no way to stop the stench, he grabbed a wrench and removed both the driver and passenger side seats before heaving them into a dumpster.
By now, a crowd of at least 30 people were staring and laughing, and in front of all of them he then got in the car, without a seat, and drove it away. Golera never saw the car again! Now that is how you put your revenge in gear.
IRSucks To Be You
If you want to hit a business where it really hurts, you call in the taxmen to take a punt. Back in the early 2000’s, fresh out of college, a redditor called FancyCat11 started a new job at a small drafting and design firm.
While the pay seemed good, she soon realized she was also being used as the receptionist, office manager, file clerk, and even janitor. But despite being obviously overworked, she got on with it and never complained.
However, just as that year’s tax returns were due, her boss asked her to request a tax deadline extension for herself. He had a reasonable excuse, so she obliged. But when she asked him for an update a few weeks later, he asked her to request another deadline extension.
This was fishy. So fishy that Fancy went through the tax records herself, and found the paperwork. It was all done, he just didn’t want to sign off on it, so he could keep all her tax money in his account while making it look like she was the one failing to pay!
Well, Fancy wasn’t having any of this, and so on Monday morning she dropped her resignation letter on his desk, and then proceeded to walk straight into the offices of the Internal Revenue Service, also known as the IRS.
She gave them all the evidence she had against the guy, and it turned out, despite taking a tax cut from her pay, he’d never paid any taxes to the IRS under that business name.
The IRS were not happy. But Fancy wasn’t done there. She then proceeded to ring all his long-standing business partners, informing them that the IRS was about to go to town on his company, and that they might want to steer clear.
After all, they didn’t want the taxman investigating them by association, did they? After the IRS investigated the matter thoroughly, much to the dismay of the boss, the business started to fail. Hard.
Whenever Fancy walked past, she noticed the entire office looked dirty and empty. A year later, it closed for good. Moral of this story? Don’t screw your employees over. And always pay your taxes!
Tyred Of It
Don’t you hate when someone parks in your spot? It’s so annoying! Even more so in bad weather, as reddit user m31td0wn knows all too well.
His girlfriend was coming over one snowy night, so he went down to the parking lot and spent an hour digging out a parking space specifically for her. He then left a little sign, asking others not to park there as he’d dug it out by hand.
But people are douchebags, and in a matter of minutes, some selfish driver had thrown the sign away and taken the spot. Cold and angry, m31tdown, aptly, had a meltdown.
His girlfriend found another place to park and fell asleep in his apartment. And once she did, he grabbed a bottle of flammable liquid, crept down to the car, and proceeded to set all 4 tires on fire before slinking back upstairs.
Within minutes, he could hear the noise of the tires bursting and exploding! The next morning, m31td0wn took out the trash and surveyed the damage and it was ugly. While the overall structure was fine, the driver would need 4 new tires and a lot of cosmetic work to restore the car!
Kids can be the worst! They scream, they cry, they throw rocks at you, or at least, they threw rocks at reddit user FrumpyFungus.
At around the age of 11, he was looking after his little brother one Saturday afternoon, when two kids knocked on his door, asking if he’d come out to play. He said no, but they kept ringing the bell, and when he didn’t respond, they decided to throw rocks at his house. Typical kid logic.
This kept happening for 2 more weeks, and when they cracked one of the windows on his house, Frumpy finally had enough. Little did these kids know Frumpy was an avid ant farmer and had a small nest of fire ants. As the name suggests, the bites from these things are incredibly spicy!
So, Frumpy took the little glass farm over to the patch of rocks the kids usually used, and dumped the ants all over them. Later that day, right on cue, he could hear the crack of rocks hitting the side of his house. But suddenly, the cracking stopped, and was replaced by the crying of a few dumb kids! The ants were all over them!
They ran back home like the babies they were, but they weren’t done there. Instead of throwing rocks, the kids resorted to stealing toys out of Frumpy’s yard! Unlucky for them, Frumpy owned more bugs, and had the smarts to set up a trap.
He filled an old book bag with Legos, dolls, and all sorts of toys and left it in his yard. Sure enough, a few hours later, it was gone but what the thieves didn’t know was that Frumpy had dumped his entire termite farm in there as well!
A few weeks later, and the kids’ house was under a big quarantine tent. I don’t know if you’ve ever had to call the exterminators, but fumigating an entire house like this can cost thousands of dollars. I bet their parents were furious! Well, sometimes revenge smells sweet, other times it smells like chemical fumes wafting down the street!
While kids can be bad, teenagers can be so much more annoying. For proof, we only need to look at reddit user alaskaguyindk’s story.
The teens in his neighborhood thought, with their adorably underdeveloped brains, that it would be really funny to repeatedly egg all the houses in the middle of winter. In the -15°F weather, the egg would freeze solid, and it’d be almost impossible to get off until spring.
Sick of scraping eggs off the side of his house, Alaskaguy came up with a plan. He and his brother would layer up and wait on the roof of the house until the teens inevitably came round again.
Only this time, they’d have paintball guns, so they’d get a taste of their own medicine. Just as they expected, the teens rolled up and were about to start yeeting eggs when Alaskaguy and his brother began firing!
The teens ducked and dodged, but suddenly they were screaming and started running for their truck! Then, as they were high tailing it out of there, the rear window of their truck suddenly smashed.
It wasn’t until Alaskaguy was back inside that he realized the paintballs had frozen solid in their hoppers, so they’d been pelting the teens with balls as hard as rocks! Luckily, the police never came knocking, and, unsurprisingly, the eager eggers never returned to that neighborhood!
Working as a food server is one of the most thankless jobs out there. The pay is bad, the hours are long, and the customers are rude. No wonder most can’t wait till closing time.
However, back in 2010, a reddit user by the name of SpangeePH was closing up the pizzeria he was managing with his team when, all of a sudden, he heard yelling and crying from the front of the shop. A group of men had barged in, demanding to be served, and when the young serving girl at the front told them they were closed, they screamed at her.
Spangee came out, and despite telling them that, yes, they were closed, they claimed the customer was always right and refused to leave until they were served. Tired, and annoyed, Spangee told the staff to fire the ovens back up before taking the girl aside and comforting her. Then, they got to making the food with a few extra special ingredients!
One of the staff reached into the grease trap, and smeared a handful of nasty, filthy black grease onto the dough. The others started spitting, snotting, and even sprinkling a few downstairs hairs on there for good measure.
They then smothered it with a layer of tomato sauce, toppings, and served it to the rude crew like nothing was wrong. The team watched as the pathetic patrons smiled, thinking they’d won, while they guzzled down every last bite! So remember, if you like your food free of filth, don’t be rude to the people serving it to you!
The Real Tank Girl
There are a lot of badass women in history, but the baddest of them all has to be Mariya Oktyabrskaya. Back in 1941, in the thick of World War 2, Fascist Germany betrayed the Soviet Union. Breaking a treaty of non-aggression, Germany attacked the Soviet city of Kiev, killing thousands of Soviet soldiers, one of which was Ilya Oktyabrskiy, Mariya’s husband.
This news would be enough to send most people into a breakdown but not Mariya. She was going to break even. Grieving and enraged, Mariya sold everything she owned and used the money to buy a T-32 tank.
But instead of donating the tank to the army, she sent a letter to the top man in charge, Joseph Stalin, explaining she wanted to pilot the tank to take her revenge. Stalin was so impressed by her gusto, he gave her the go ahead, and even granted her request that the tank be called “Fighting Girlfriend”.
After five months of training as a tank driver and mechanic, Mariya was ready. But she was ridiculed by her comrades and seen as something of a joke. However, this just fueled Mariya’s need for revenge even further.
So much so that in her very first tank battle in 1943, Fighting Girlfriend was the first tank to breech enemy lines! She lay waste to a German artillery gun and mowed down more than 50 enemy soldiers in her way.
And she was just getting started. Her slaughtering spree lasted for just over a year, when, just like her husband, she was killed in battle. But by that point, she’d gotten her revenge, and made the fascists regret ever messing with a Soviet Woman!
Doing work for a family member sometimes means they’ll ask for the famous ‘family discount’. But there’s a big difference between a discount and refusing to pay, as reddit user AusNecromancer discovered.
He’d done four weeks of back breaking yard work for his auntie, who’d promised to pay him some $200 a week. However, when he went to collect, his auntie said she was using the full family discount and straight up refused to pay him. That was until, at midnight that night, she woke up to find her entire garden had been set on fire!
While she couldn’t prove it was AusNecromancer, she knew. And he knew. Guess you could call that the scorched earth tactic!
There’s nothing that breaks your heart quite like being cheated on. But luckily, stories of cheaters getting their just desserts help fill the void more than ice cream and chick flicks. And one such story that really hits the spot was left by a throwaway reddit account, who I’ll refer to as Elon.
Elon was on social media one day when he realized he’d stumbled onto the secret account of his best friend’s wife. She was flirting with one of their other friends, and it was pretty obvious they’d been getting way too close. Elon immediately told his best friend, who I’ll call Jeff, and naturally, the guy was crushed.
After stewing on the information for a few weeks, he asked Elon not to say a word about what he knew. Elon promised he wouldn’t. From then on, every time he saw Jeff and his wife, the couple seemed perfectly happy and like nothing was wrong.
But 9 months later, it all changed. Out of the blue, Jeff revealed he had a gambling addiction. He’d lost everything. He’d sold their cars and leased new ones, losing all the money to gambling. All of their savings, 401k retirement earnings, every last penny was gone!
She immediately filed for divorce, no alimony was owed, and so the entire thing was finalized without him ever mentioning her cheating. And because all the money was gone, all she was able to claim were some bits of furniture, along with a few pots and pans.
Little did she know however, that Jeff’s gambling addiction was a complete fabrication. He’d stashed all the cash in secret accounts, made up the lie, and because she assumed the money was just gone, he got her to leave without giving her a single cent! Some might call that sneaky, but I call it the cheater tax!
Getting the Itch
It’s time to revel in a story of god-tier cheater revenge, enacted by a reddit user I’ll call Dos, from more than 15 years ago. Dos married his childhood sweetheart, and while he went on to pursue a master’s in engineering, she was finishing a doctorate in anthropology.
Over the summer, she was given the opportunity to earn some extra money as an aid on a 6-week trip to Jamaica. While Dos knew he’d miss her, he supported her completely, and went as far as to do extra work while she was away to financially match what she was making.
But after the trip, one of the other students told Dos that his wife and their professor had been hooking up all over the island. At first, Dos didn’t believe this. He’d met the professor; he’d invited him into their home for BBQ and beers!
But one evening, he broke down and checked her emails. Not only were they sleeping together in his bed, but they were mocking Dos in email after email for not knowing about it. Dos was crushed. For several weeks he said nothing, and soon began noticing that ‘studying late’ was clearly code for being with the professor. He felt so stupid.
But then, he decided to do something about it. One thing he and his wife did do was make their own personal lubricant, which they seasoned with the devil’s lettuce or Marijuana. Figuring his wife and the professor were making liberal use of the lube, he decided to season a new batch with a little extra something-something: poison ivy!
A few days later, she left for a ‘late-night study group’. When she got back and hit up the shower, Dos changed the contact information in her phone, swapping his name for the professor’s!
The next morning, she thought she was texting the professor, but it was Dos that received a message reading “I’m super itchy are you ok?”. Dos, who was downstairs making breakfast, replied as the professor “I’m sorry, but I’ve got herpes, and I guess you do now too”. He then continued that he was interested in a new, younger assistant of his, so they needed to break it off.
Suddenly, she stormed downstairs and angrily started eating breakfast, before making an excuse and dashing out the door. Dos took this opportunity to open her laptop, delete her entire thesis, and then slyly follow her.
She ended up, to no-one’s surprise, at the professor’s office, where she’d stormed in and demanded to see him that instant. When Dos entered his office, she was crying and screaming at the professor in front of all his staff for giving her herpes! I bet that professor was as confused as he was embarrassed. But this was only the beginning of the fallout.
Obviously, Dos filed for divorce, getting the majority of the assets thanks to his ex-wife’s very public admittance of being unfaithful. The professor was kicked out of the university for breaking the code of conduct and could never find a job beyond teaching in a high school. And the ex-wife never got her doctorate. Though she did get well and truly schooled in the art of revenge!
