'My mum hates my cooking – every meal I serve is a small slice of revenge'

They say revenge is a dish best served cold but one woman has revealed how her mother’s hatred of pasta means she can now get retribution, Italian-style. Sharing how she likes to get payback for her mum’s previous nasty and abusive behaviour, she explained that she uses the same techniques that had been used on her.

Admitting she feels “giddy” by how well her devious plan had been working, she shared the disturbing story on social media. She wrote: “No one but my mother and I know that almost every meal I make for her is revenge. I have never told anyone this, not even my husband, but it happened again tonight and I'm feeling a bit giddy because of how well it worked yet again, so I want to brag.”

She then added: “I'm aware I'm a piece of s***. Part of why I haven't told anyone. When I was little, my mother wanted to use corporal punishment on me, not my siblings, never my siblings, but because I was such a bad kid she wanted my dad to hit me.

“My dad flat out refused, and told her that if she did, he wouldn't be able to stay with her, because he didn't want anyone hitting his kids. My dad was abused pretty bad as a kid, whole other story, can't get into it too much or we'd be here all day.

“So, instead, whenever my mom was mad at me she would give me spicy food to eat, even though I hated it and it made me sick. Like, full on stomach cramps, diarrhea, the f****** works. She would only do it when my dad was at work, which was most nights at dinner, and whenever I asked for something else to eat she would break down and cry over how much time she spent on my food, and don't I love her? Guilting me into hurting myself.”

All of this changed, however, when the woman turned 16 and began taking over some of the chores in the household. She went on: “I started cooking dinner twice a week. My mother hates pasta. She hates it. It's a 'texture' thing, and she claims its always 'slimy'.

“One brilliant night, after my father began working morning shifts, I was mad at her for screaming at me earlier in the day, and I realized I could do something about it. Since that night the one of the only meals I have cooked for my mother is pasta. I load it with sauce, and sometimes make things like baked spaghetti because she hates the way the top of it looks.

“Whenever she's tried to turn it down, I put on waterworks and shake, and look at the table. ‘You've always eaten it before, what did I do wrong? Are you mad at me, mom?’ And because either my dad or my husband, or other people whose opinion she cares about is there she's never called me out.

“I am 26 years old and I intend to do this for every meal we share, or until she cuts me off- I'm not gonna be seen as the bad guy here, for not 'keeping the family together'. I honestly don't care if this makes me a bad guy, she sucked and this is my pettiest form of revenge. Watching her try to keep a straight face while choking down chicken alfredo is the highlight of my week.”

People reading the unnerving Reddit post were both horrified and impressed by the confession. One person replied: “Oh, that's brilliant! You could try serving her a bowl of that mushy instant ramen with the little dehydrated veggies that barely rehydrate. Extra points if you throw in some limp, overcooked veggies for that 'authentic' touch. She'd be squirming in her seat the whole meal.”

Another user added: “It's like the ultimate petty payback. Sometimes you just gotta take satisfaction in the little victories, even if it involves some soggy pasta revenge. Karma served with a side of spaghetti.”
