We all have moments when we wish the worst on people who've done us wrong. The thoughts that might have crossed your mind when you think about the horrible things you'd inflict on the worst person you've ever met are likely not fit for print. But you'd be surprised how creative some people can be with their punishments.

We're not talking Saw levels of comeuppance here, by the way, as that would be wrong. There are lots of other ways to drive people crazy, as we learned after Redditor thingusracamagucous asked the online community, "People say 'I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy' but what WOULD you wish on your worst enemy?"


"I would wish..."

I would wish for the arches of their feet to itch at the most inconvenient of times for the rest of their life, especially when on a ski lift.

"Even when they are riding..."

Every traffic light is red. Even when they are riding with others or on a bus. Everywhere they go, red lights.

"And for everyone he encounters..."

Slow, sinking, agonizing realization of the true damage he's done. And for everyone he encounters to automatically know what he's done, so everywhere he goes, people shun him and refuse to much as sell him a cup of coffee because they don't want even a minimal association with someone so vile.

Oh, and no amount of alcohol or drugs can numb the shame, regret, and self-loathing and he gets to live a nice long life that way.

"He'll step on..."

Empathy. My worst "enemy" happens to be an incredibly brilliant and talented person, but he's a total sociopath. He'll step on or over whoever he needs to in order to meet his own goals. He's the type that would repossess storybooks from an orphanage, like Walter Hobbs in the movie Elf. I'd inflict a sudden onset of empathy and the guilt that would accompany it when he looks back at how he's treated people. He COULD help to make the world a better place.

"Forever."

Itchy bumhole. Forever.

"Like..."

Chronically itchy anus, and elastic in her clothing that gives up the ghost at random and very inconvenient times.

Like, she can be at the grocery store, just shopping for eggs or bread or whatever, and suddenly, one bra strap snaps, leaving one boob flopping unrestrained, and one sock feels like it's about to slide down into her shoe, and all the while, her butthole itches.

"To have..."

To have sneeze induced diarrhea AND suddenly be allergic to everything.

"That they have a realization..."

That they have a realization about what a horrible person they have been and apologize to everyone they have wronged. Then they take positive actions to make things right with each of those people.

"To swallow..."

To swallow those magnetic pins that prevent shoplifting. Now every time they go to a shop they'll ring and have to explain why and sound dumb.

"A lack of enjoyment..."

A life of solitude and alienation. A deeply unfulfilling career. A lack of enjoyment in hobbies and amusements. No close friends or companions, but a smattering of acquaintances and parasocial relationships.

Remember way back when the internet wasn't a flaming dumpster fire?

Yeah, us either.

The internet has always been a mess, but it's also always been beautiful.

So let's talk about how a dog owner on Facebook learned her dog's "adorable" behavior was, in fact, furious masturbation.

Readers, if you know anything about me you know I love a good plot twist and I love chonky puppers.

Yesterday, life combined my two great loves in a hilarious and inappropriate way.

I was mindlessly scrolling through my dog groups on Facebook when a video with a few hundred laugh reacts but almost no comments caught my eye.

The still from the video was a pudgy little Frenchie, so obviously I had to read and watch.

Have you ever fantasized about what it would be like to win the lottery? Having money for the rest of your life, as far as the eye can see, to cover your expenses.

And have you thought about all the things you would buy if you could really afford them? Are they ALL practical things, or are some of them silly?

We always love to fantasize about what life would be like if money were no object. And you are not alone!
