Full-Blown Failure
The unforeseen failure other people intentionally create for you
because you intentionally create failure for them

Clothing designer Dana Roslan brought cookies for her lunches, only to have them stolen by a coworker. Frustrated, Roslan bought dog biscuits that looked like biscotti and set the trap. She said her only remorse was “not being able to see his face after he ate the bait.”

The coworker intentionally created failure for Roslan by stealing her delicious cookies. Roslan responded by intentionally creating failure for the coworker with the bait of yucky dog biscuits.

People do get creative with their revenge.

A web host transfer made some posts disappear. Luckily, I copied each post and emailed it to myself. Since I alternated success and failure posts, I will have to remove posts and republish them in success and failure order. I will do this as I have time. Apologies.
