We love tales of revenge with a side of vengeance and a bit of pay-backery. If you think not, explain the wild success of the "John Wick" films, where a former hitman gets revenge for his dog being killed by a group of Russian mobsters. We desire suffering for those who've inflicted it on us deep in some dark corner of our souls. But, since we don't have access to an elite assassin's network, some of us might have to settle for wishing these on our enemies.


Reddit user, u/seawolfie, wanted to know what pesky problems you'd wish for when they asked:

What minor annoyance would you wish on your worst enemy, every day, forever?

Your Writing Will Always Look Just A Bit Too Scratchy

No matter how many times they sharpen a pencil, or how good the pencil/shapener [sic] is, the very tip will always snap, breaking the pencil.

Its happened to many times to me, i wish for someone to feel my pain.

Good Luck Trying To Get One

Every time they reach for a paper clip all of them are chained together and have to be untangled.

I worked in an office once where somebody did this to the boss. Connected all her paper clips together. She got angry and said don't ever do that again.

Idiot did it again a week later. She fired him on the spot.

"If you have enough time to f-ck around with my paper clips, you're not doing your job properly".

She was harsh, but right.

Always With The Heels

Damp socks, or sandy socks. A hole in the heel so your skin sticks slightly to the bottom of the shoe. A sticker that is poking when your foot is at just the right angle, but cannot possibly be found in either the sock or the shoe. Socks with slightly too tight openings that leave an imprint.

All of the above on a random daily rotation.

Some years ago, I had to advise a college friend to stop chasing the girl he was interested in at the time. She'd already turned him down. Explicitly. At least two or three times.

He wouldn't take no for an answer and didn't see anything wrong with his behavior.

Perhaps he'd seen too many movies where the guy eventually breaks through the girl's defenses and essentially coerces her into going out with him?

Parents make mistakes. We want to believe that parents are doing there very best to raise their kids, but sometimes they do more harm than good.

Research into childhood trauma didn't actually begin until the 1970s, so we don't have as much knowledge about our mental health as adults as we might like.

However, a study that followed 1,420 from 1992 to 2015 found conclusive results about childhood trauma:

"'It is a myth to believe that childhood trauma is a rare experience that only affects few,' the researchers say."
"Rather, their population sample suggests, 'it is a normative experience—it affects the majority of children at some point.'"
"A surprising 60 percent of those in the study were exposed to at least one trauma by age 16. Over 30 percent were exposed to multiple traumatic events."

Not all of the things our parents do that were not so helpful technically classify as trauma, but it definitely has an effect on us as we get older.

On the outside, so many professions and careers look glamorous, financially enticing, and fun.

Often we sit back in our own lives and wallow in our dead-end jobs with that "wish I could do that for a living mentality!"

But if you look a little closer or, much like Dorothy Gale in OZ, just wait for a Toto to push the curtain back, you'll see that a lot more is going on behind the scenes.

And the shenanigans we don't see, make all that fun... evaporate.

So many careers and high power industries are built on a foundation of lies, backstabbing, and stress. And not in that fun "Dynasty" way.

That quiet, dead-end gig may not be so bad after all.

Redditor MethodicallyDeep wanted hear all the tea about certain careers, by asking:

What is a secret in your industry that should be talked about?
