Forget its temperature, revenge is a dish based served only in your imagination, where it won't impact your life, your job, or what your friends think of you. But the plotting of revenge against someone who has wronged you seems so good.
Write a very specific, non-violent revenge scheme against someone that you would never do. Then tell us about it, because telling us about it makes it much less likely for you to get overtired and try to make your scheme a reality.
What prompted me to think of this was finding out that someone who worked in an independent bookstore was ranting online about how customers weren't picking up their books, and how bad that was for independent booksellers. Meanwhile, this person has over three hundred dollars worth of books they hadn't picked up at the independent bookseller I work at.
I very publicly claimed I was going to go to their store during a shift when I knew they'd be working, and turn an entire shelf of books spine-in so that you couldn't tell what any of the books were, and it nearby and watch them try to rearrange them back to their proper order.
I'm NEVER going to do this. But it felt very therapeutic to say that I would.
