They moved on with their life after setting up the ultimate hell for their ex to come back home to.
As much as we'd like to behave like adults and bring things to an amicable conclusion, rarely do relationships end on a good note. The multitude of emotions involved in the process could make even the calmest of us act in ways that we regret later. However, for Reddit user u/DJ_Duke_of_spook, there were no regrets. In a viral post shared to the r/ProRevenge forum, the Redditor explained how they executed the ultimate revenge plan after their then-girlfriend kicked them out of the house so that her new boyfriend could move in instead.
"I did this to an ex who asked me to move out while she was on a work trip and told me she was coming back with her new boyfriend, we were still together when she left," they wrote. "I got these little noisemakers, battery-powered ones the size of a quarter that emits sounds at just the right volume that you aren't sure if you really heard it. So quiet that two people could be sitting in an average-sized room and while one can barely hear it the other wouldn't hear a thing. They last ages and fit perfectly in light fixtures and wall outlets."
The Redditor revealed that they purchased a box of 20 noisemakers from eBay for about $100. They then got creative with the placement of the devices and hid them all over their ex's house, car, and even the boat her father gave her. "Now these little bastards make noise at completely random intervals, could be minutes, could be hours, could take a whole day off," they explained. "They cycle noises like children laughing, a 'dying breath' as they called it, a whistle, scratching noises, [and] some other ones I can't remember but you get the idea. It was so unpredictable it was near impossible for someone to just figure it out."
Having prepared a living hell for their ex, the Redditor moved on with their life. "Months go by, I get a new place, get my life back up," they shared. "Now we had a few friends in common and one of them I kept up with. They were kinda sour about how she ended things but they had grown up together and kept up the friendship, loosely talking and catching up on occasion. I never really asked about her, but one day we get to talking and he's wanting to prank some friends on a camping trip so I tell him about the noisemakers."
"As I’m telling him about them he slowly starts making this face, like he's gradually losing his shit. He's got this huge grin on his face and asks me 'you put these in (ex) shit didn't you!?' And when I admit he starts laughing hysterically," the Redditor recounted. The friend then went on to share everything that transpired after the Redditor moved out of their ex's house. "Turns out her new boyfriend had only lasted a few months and had left telling her that he couldn't handle whatever was going on with them and their mental states. Turns out for a while they had both heard things and sometimes only one would hear them, which gave the illusion that something really fu**ed was going on in their heads at different times."
"They couldn't figure it out and eventually he wanted out completely, and having run down all the crazy list of shit people who are hearing voices would think, [he] ended it believing he had been infected with some brain worm the government was putting in vaccines or something like that," u/DJ_Duke_of_spook wrote. "It was amazing, I hadn't expected to hear anything about it. I rode that train for weeks. When it went away I got another hit of that high. She moved out, told her parents she didn't want the house and to give it to her brother or sell it. Wouldn't tell them why. I always tell people who ask about her that I hold no grudge, and don't tell them the part where I totally fucked with her so bad I overshot the 'got her back' stage and hit the blissful state of 'satisfied with my work.' My wife knows this story by heart because it's her favorite one to tell."
