If someone purposely tried to hurt me even if they thought it was only a joke/silly prank/slight revenge, then I wouldn't be very chuffed with the person concerned and I'd perhaps find it hard to forgive the person very easily...therefore revenge is never a good idea or else I'd be wanting to get my own back on a lot of folk out there. Even if you're planning something as a joke/prank you never know when it can backfire particularly if you are trying to prove a point and you never know just how much you're likely to hurt someone through your own stupidity!!! I can take a joke but not everyone is as smart as they think they might be and sometimes jokes can go too far!
I think I'm the sort of person who would prefer to turn the other cheek rather than to try and get my revenge on anyone....besides, I wouldn't want someone to think they really got to me, however I'd grin from ear to ear if they got their comeuppance. Now that would be the best revenge of all. :) I don't think I am different to many folk out there. I would never want to hurt anyone intentionally, certainly not in a physical manner. Eww and how I dislike folk who lie when they are playing a stupid prank/trying to get revenge on someone.
We all love a laugh and a joke, the odd little leg pull perhaps...but not when it goes too far and beyond a joke... and you end up hurting someone in the process of it!
Here's a little sweet revenge which made me smile. :)
Playwright George Bernard Shaw sent Sir Winston Churchill a caustic invitation, reading: "Am reserving two tickets for you for my premiere. Come & bring a friend - if you have one." Churchill replied: "Impossible to be present for the first performance. Will attend second - if there is one."
