Sometimes it’s the small victories in life that make it so worth living. Especially when it involves giving someone who has wronged you a little well-deserved comeuppance.
One person who knows all about this type of small victory in life is a man named Frederico Hill.
For you see, Frederico was waiting in line to place his order at a chicken restaurant when he heard a woman in line behind him calling him fat under her breath. Not a very cool thing to do, right? What should have done? Ignore her? Say something? Stoop to rarely seen levels of pettiness? Ding ding!!
Hill explained how he got his sweet, sweet payback in a post on Facebook. (I’ve cleaned up the grammar, punctuation and internet shorthand.)
I just bought this chicken out of spite because a mother behind me muttering to her whining children that “he can only eat 1 piece, no more than that or you’ll end up fat like uncle (me) in front.”
I asked the clerk if all the chicken on display is all they had left, they said yes, the other batch is still cooking.
I said to the clerk [I wanted] to buy all of it, paid, and walked away slowly. When the mother come up to the register, the clerk explained that they’re out of chicken and she needs to wait for 30 minutes. Her kid keeps whining she was angry and upset. She then looked at me frowning. I just flipped her the bird and turned [and] went home.
Now I’m Rp 240k poorer and have 15 pieces of chicken because of spite, but seeing the look on her face and her kid is priceless.
Childish reaction? Sure. Effective and hilarious? No doubt about it.
Not all heroes wear capes, people.
