This is a question I'm going to Hell...

...because I said the Lord's Prayer backwards at a funeral to summon up the Goat of Mendes, Freddie Woo tells us. Tell us why you're doomed.

Thanks to Kaol for the suggestion

Did a similar thing on a plane recently
As I was chucking me bag into the overhead compartment, a bedraggled harridan said,


"Excuse me?", I said.

"There are breakables in there"

"OK", says I.

Now, if she had 1 - asked me to be careful in an any way polite manner, revenge might not have been necessary but she didn't. She used a peremptory tone of voice and demanded I be careful.

or 2 - placed her breakables in a sensible manner in the overhead compartment where they would be clearly seen and remarked upon as fragile (instead of strewn about), I wouldn't have acted thus:

When we sat down directly behind her, I said, sufficiently audibly to my travel companion,

"Make sure you have a sickbag there and try not to projectile vomit it like you did last time".


That poor woman eventually changed seat.

I won.

Serves her right. If only people could take the time to add two small but very significant words before they say anything: "excuse me".

"Excuse me, can I get on the train first?". "Excuse me, there are delicate goods in the overhead locker".
The world would be a nicer place all round methinks.

I'm goign to bring my children up to know that some of the most important words they'll ever learn are "please" and "thankyou".

and that revenge is a dish best served cold.
Never fight, never argue - just win.
