I was a lot more vengeful when I was younger.
When I was in college, I started seeing a guy in my program. I was a young single mom and I really wanted to be taken seriously. We never did “anything” but we did hang out and go on a few dates.
Well one day, a few of the older ladies in my program came up to me and started asking me if I had slept with him. It kind of caught me off guard. I told them that I hadn’t and they then told me that he was going around telling everyone that I was a slut.
So, (I am definitely not proud of this now) I hacked his email and facebook and sent out a mass email coming out. It was very convincing.
He never found out it was me.
I would NEVER do anything like that now that I am older, but back then… for sure.

@tranquility: LOL! Don’t worry, I’ve done the e-mail/FB hacking thing too!

I really don’t think I’m vengeful at all. I’ve had one person seriously screw me over, my former best friend and the woman who was maid of honor at my wedding, and I never wished anything bad would happen to her. Was I furious with her? Absolutely. But we were friends for a long time, friendship is a two way street, and I was complicit in allowing her to treat me the way that she did. I don’t want her in my life anymore, she brought very bad things into it, but that doesn’t mean that I wish her any ill. I truly hope that she is happy. And I told her so as I was telling her that we could no longer be friends. Vengeance and vengeful thinking only bring darkness and anger into your life and they rarely have any effect on the person you’re directing them towards. I genuinely do want the best for everyone–and feeling that way is so much nicer and more fun than hoping that someday something bad happens to them.

Oooh, now this IS a fun poll! I always strive to be above it all, pollyanna, blah blah but in reality I do tend to wish harm upon those who have wronged me. Not harm as in get into a car accident harm or anything, but payback in the form of being wronged in exactly the way they wronged me.
When I was younger I took actual steps towards making this “wrong” happen. As I’ve gotten older, however, I like to believe that I’ve got a little more control over my emotions and tend to trust that karma will take care of the jerk in it’s own time.
In fact, I’m still waiting on a visit from the karma fairy to my ex, with whom I work. And the new girl who still likes to prance around the office like she owns the damn place and try to be nicey nicey with me (she’s lost a lot of weight recently, pretty sure I could snap her like a twig..)
Ok, so maybe I need to work on the whole “zen” thing a little more…

I’ve only been really honestly vengeful to one woman, and she deserved every ounce of what she got, and more.
Other than that, it’s pretty hard to really ruffle my feathers, but I definitely do giggle if/when I find out karma has bitten someone in the butt who deserved it.
“To karma” has been the subject of several toasts in the various cocktail hours over the course of me and my husband’s relationship. 😉

Sometimes it seems like people who mess with me really don’t do well…and I mean soon…not years later. So sometimes I find myself having to pray that they are OK sometimes.
Some psychic years ago said I have an angel that protects me so maybe I’m not vengeful but my angel kicks ass! lol
