With this act of petty revenge, true balance was restored. This thread was posted to Reddit’s r/pettyrevenge subreddit by u/horatio_winklebottom, a great username that we must acknowledge. Now, I don’t know much about Buddhist retreats and the Redditor may not either, but I do know that revenge is a dish best served cold…and apparently, with a swarm of ants.
We have all fantasized about revenge on petty insignificant people like those who cut the line at, say, a Starbucks. Usually, however, we don’t have the time or energy to actually enact that revenge. This person, however, certainly had that time at a silent meditation retreat. Perhaps this wasn’t the goal of the experience, but it certainly made for a great story. And aren’t great stories the key to a well-examined life? Keep scrolling below to see just how the original poster pulled this off.
