    I just read the following and am wondering if anyone can top this great getting even story:

    A ex-wife spent the first day packing her belongings into boxes, crates and suitcases.
    On the second day, she had the movers come and collect her things.

    On the third day, she sat down for the last time at their beautiful dining room table by candlelight, put on some soft background music, and feasted on the pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar, and a bottle of chardonnay.

    When she had finished, she went into each and every room and deposited A few half-eaten shrimp shells dipped in caviar, into the hollow of the curtain rods.

    She then cleaned up the kitchen and left.

    When the husband returned with his new girlfriend, all was bliss for the first few days. Then slowly, the house began to smell.

    They tried everything, cleaning, mopping, and airing out the place. Vents were checked for dead rodents, and carpets were steam cleaned. Air fresheners were hung everywhere.

    Exterminators were brought in to set off gas canisters, during which they had to move out for a few days, and in the end they even paid to replace the expensive wool carpeting.

    Nothing worked!

    People stopped coming over to visit.

    Repairmen refused to work in the house.

    The maid quit.

    Finally, they could not take the stench any longer and decided to move.

    A month later, even though they had cut their price in half, they could not find a buyer for their stinky house. Word got out, and eventually, even the local realtors refused to return their calls.

    Finally, they had to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase a new place.

    The ex-wife called the man, asking how things were going. He told her the saga of the rotting house. She listened politely, and said that she missed her old home terribly, and would be willing to reduce her divorce settlement in exchange for getting the house back.

    Knowing his ex-wife had no idea how bad the smell was, he agreed on price that was about 1/10th of what the house had been worth, but only if she signed the papers that day.

    She agreed, and within the hour his lawyers delivered the paperwork.

    A week later the man and his girlfriend stood smiling as they watched the moving company pack everything to take to their new home, including the curtain rods.

    Sounds like a fake story to me. Also sounds like criminal charges could be filed if it was true. The best revenge is to walk away and not care about the other person.

    let him go. who cares, right? he didn't want her, he wanted another, so let him go, and find another who wants you, plain and simple.

    i have had people do me wrong a couple of times in my life...worse than in this scenario, and i never wanted to "get even" or anything like that. i guess the only thing that could spark vengeful feelings in my heart is if someone hurt my son. then i could get ugly real fast.

    Yep, it was a joke really, not factual, should have made that clear for all you truly serious people!  I'm not condoning "getting even" so please don't make a judgment about me based on this!!!  I'm just telling stories - at ease, gentlemen!

    Mega, it looks like you and I are the only ones with a sense of humor. lol  When I first started reading your post I immediately thought of exactly what you had already written. I received this funny email a long time ago and though I wouldn't do something like that myself and wouldn't condone it from anyone else it is funny. You sometimes just have to sit back and chill and not be so serious about life . It was a great imagination at work here.

    Again for all the serious posters, it really was just a funny email.

    An episode of M*A*S*H a long time ago, a guy got a "dear john" letter, and his g/f broke up with him in a very cruel way, bragging about her new boyfriend and their upcoming marriage.

    The poor guy was beside himself, all alone in Korea, so one of the guys went around to *all* the guys and collected pics of as many other girls as he could, took them to the broken hearted guy and told him to tell her ex g/f that he wanted to return her picture, but since he couldn't remember exactly which one she was, he was returning all the pictures he had, and that she should pick her picture out of the bunch and please return the rest.

    It was a great episode.
