People Are Sharing Their Pettiest Breakup Revenge Stories and They're Honestly Inspiring

By Pippa Raga

It's an age-old tale of sadness and despair: finding out your SO is a lying piece of trash deserving of the kind of revenge that will simultaneously amuse you and push buttons only someone who knows you intimately will know how to find. 

If you're going through it right now, I'm sorry. It might feel for the next few weeks like you're carrying the weight of the world, but know that many people have been through similar breakups and have handled them with the perfect amounts of humor, grace, and pettiness. 

In fact, these 11 women came together to share the most spiteful things they've done after a breakup, and you should honestly take notes (or just highlight and screengrab a bunch) because these are straight-up inspirational.

Read on for 11 stories of the most mic-drop ways to cope with being single again.

1. It's not the worst time to remind him of his daddy issues.

One woman shares how her ex "always spoke about how he hated his dad for cheating and lying to his mom." When she found out that he had, in turn, been cheating "with multiple women," she figured out a way to tell him she was in on his secret.

"I went to his apartment and found a photo of us on his bedside table," then "wrote 'Just like your daddy' on it." If that wasn't bad enough, she also thought to make his bathroom runs a little more... uncomfortable.

"I also took all his toilet paper and hand soap," she writes. "Because even though he was the 25-year-old man with a job and I was a 19-year-old college student," he apparently couldn't buy his own toiletries.

So let's just say, she took back what was rightfully hers.
