    You know when you do something that is "not really hurting anybody" to get back at someone or some thing? Like a revenge on a pet-peeve?

    Sometimes when I get unsolicited "offers" in the mail, I return the postage paid envelopes with the original mailings stuffed inside so they have to pay the postage.

    If I hold the door for someone and they do not have the common courtesy to look at me or even say "thank you", I loudly say "You're welcome!"

    When groups of people walk down a sidewalk or aisle side-by-side and expect you to move out of the way, I shoulder check them then say "sorry."

    When I am trying to get off the freeway and the on ramp traffic is bumper-to-bumper, I just turn on my signal and start moving over between two cars, forcing them to make room.

    I like this idea! I will have to try that myself.

    Sorta like being a bit of a dick but not a total dick?

    When I was a kid there was a guy I worked with in a shop doing pranks that got old quick. Grease on tool box handles. Things on top of ceiling fan blades. Well someone installed a zerk fitting on his locked tool box and pumped grease in until it pushed out of the seams.

    My dad used to do that, only he would fill out whatever forms were in the envelope with all kinds of cuss words and vile stuff. My mom was always afraid he was going to get arrested for violating some kind of postal regulation.

    Do it all the time to people and businesses that send me crap online, in the mail and on the phone. If you come to my door selling something, they better have a pile of cash to give me as they don't want to hear what I have to say to them. Otherwise I'm a nice guy.

    We have taken unsolicited info out of one envelope and stuffed it into another postage paid envelope.
    My wife never puts anything away. I take her stuff that's just laying around and hide it and watch her wandering around trying to figure out where she put it. You'd think she would have learned after all these years.
    I too say "You're welcome" Dave with the door thing.

    I started a new way to answer telemarketer calls.
    I answer the phone with my best impersonation of an old angry Chinese man.
    I just keep it up until they hang up on me.
    My wife has a good laugh listening to me bitch them out in Chinese.
