This Dissatisfied Bridezilla Tried Trashing a Business on Facebook and Got Destroyed

By Mustafa Gatollari

I don't know what it is about people getting their comeuppances that's so satisfying, especially obnoxious people who book events, like this dissatisfied bride I'm going to tell you about. I think a lot of it has to do with the "spirit of the staircase," or L'esprit de l'escalier.

It's a French term (duh), that perfectly captures a very common phenomenon: leaving a party or event or area where someone put you in an awkward position that left you speechless or unsure of how to act.

However, it's only afterwards (once you've exited the space and are walking down the steps) that all the things you should have said start pouring into your brain. It's as if you were possessed with the knowledge — all of a sudden — of what you should do, except you've already gotten out of your sticky situation.
