Of course, you have to be careful not to hurt anyone when you deliver payback, so petty revenge is sometimes the only option.
Obviously, if we were all emotionally mature enough to simply get over things and move on, we’d be a lot better off. Often, revenge only leads to a cycle of retaliation.
But it can also feel really rewarding.
While we’re not advocating revenge, we have gathered 60 of the best petty revenge photos from the web, showing just how low people can go after someone annoys them.
Both are annoying.
The person who made this sign is using it against the worst of the spammers:
“Every time I get a spam fax at work I put the spammer’s number on a Free Monkey flyer and post it somewhere around town.”
“Lad at work just eats everyone’s treats. Tomorrow will be a surprise for him.”
Yes, it will! A really gross surprise – and one that we would have loved to watch.
Seriously though, who steals people’s food!?
We really have no sympathy for cheaters (just break up already!), but this probably goes beyond petty since that tattoo will be a forever reminder of what he did.
It’s impossible to discipline a cat and get off scot-free.
Clearly this feline does not care about the environment.
Seems like everybody wins here – he gets his petty revenge and she gets her cash.
Now the whole world knows just what he sounds like (and, finally, so does he!).
We love it!
While it’s not exactly festive, it is embarassing to a person who totally deserves it!
When this obnoxious driver parked in 2 spots, a parking lot avenger decided to zip tie a shopping cart to his door handle.
At least now they have to face some inconvenience as well!
We doubt the town enjoyed that bad press.
ALWAYS be nice to the waitstaff.
And – in this case – a fine to go along with it.
This might be a bit big to be “petty” though. It was titled “Bitter man buys the house next door to his ex-wife and installs an interesting sculpture.”
That seems like a big investment for sweet, immature revenge.
We don’t know what the next move is here, but it’s either an admission and apology or a bird-eye view of obnoxious deor for eternity.
Sometimes it’s better to just apologize.
We think they got the point across with the second sign as well.
And to let him or her know, they spelled it out for them – quite literally, with the hair.
Distusting and brilliant!
But do you think this guy played so dirty during the office snowball fight that he deserved this petty revenge afterward?
“Pettiness level 100,000,00…… My husband was angry this morning so he decided he was only making his half of the bed.”
Hey, that’s still more than some husbands do.
The pettiness level on this one is cranked up to the max.
Not only was this guy reminded of the fight with his partner the night before while he was at work, but he also has to wonder if his food is jinxed.
Now they’re entitled and their BMW is covered in jam.
Bet that was fun to wash off!
It’s a giant bag of dog turds – which is exactly what they deserve.
We don’t know what this guy’s roomate did, but we’re guessing he’s never going to do it again.
If you go on Google maps, you’ll see exactly what he thinks about the jerk next door.
After a friend toilet papered this OPs car, they decided to get them back…colorfully.
That is A LOT of Post-Its to take off a car!
“I’ve carried chalk in my car for 10 months just so I could do this once. Yesterday was the day.”
We hope it was everything they dreamed it would be.
Still, we have to know who these barbarians are that eat other people’s food at work. That’s next-level clueless.
Maybe they do deserve some cat food.
Always be careful when trying to get revenge against your cat.
“This is 6 months worth of junk mail. I shoved all the contents into the prepaid envelopes and tomorrow I’m mailing it all back at the junk mailers expense.”
Again, aside from the senseless environmental impact, we are so down for pranking junk mailers.
And we’re sure the kid LOVED making tons of noise with it.
Guess their parents will have some phone calls to make in the future.
Of course, you can always deny it was intentional.
Subtle, petty, brilliant.
This cat has taken its enjoyment of the dog’s bed to the most gloriously petty level.
Not all publicity is good publicity.
Clearly they don’t know women very well.
We’d say this waitress got the best revenge – but probably not a great tip.
Is no one parking in the lines anymore these days? How hard is it?!
How many times has your cat laid on your laptop or keyboard and made life inconvenient?
We’re enjoying the look of annoyance on the cat’s face – especially since it can technically get up whenever it wants.
And threading his shoes through the frame is a great, and deeply inconvenient, touch too.
We wonder how long it takes to unwrap a whole car.
Too bad this driver felt like the rules didn’t apply to them.
They deserved to get towed!
Otherwise all of your friends will know what you’ve done.
Trust us, no one wants to talk to a bigot like this in the bathroom anyway.
Get over it and get on with life.
We wonder how long it took this guy to get mad – and then get revenge.
We bet this teacher just gave him the hall pass from there on out.
“Joined a gym, and was teased by my fit friends who workout there. Got my revenge.”
Who teases people at the gym? That’s so low.
Do you think this was enough to embarrass these guys?
Sadly, if you take duckface gym selfies, your threshold for embarrassment is probably pretty high (and your self-awareness pretty low).
