There Is Nothing Like A Woman Scorned

For all of us who have had our hearts broken…


Is the saying " there is nothing like a woman scorned" true? I do believe it is, we have all had our heart broken sometime in our life. Maybe it was by our very first love, the one that you feel you will never get over, and all you want to do is get even…

This womanly feeling has emerged in my daughter, her heart is broken, and she is now the woman who has been scorned. Her first love who she had dated for 11 months not only broke up with her on her birthday ( how rude) but he had another girlfriend within a few days. As her mother, I tried to console her with the usual things a mother say’s like, " I know it hurts, but someday the right one will come along", or "who needs someone like him, you deserve better". We all know full well that words mean nothing at a time like this, I could see it in her eyes.

Several days after the break up she came to me feeling pumped up, with an expression of confidence. I knew something had taken place for her to be feeling so smug. She proceeded to tell me that she had gotten even. Her exact words were, "I am bad, I mean really bad , I so got even". As much as we don’t want our daughters to get even, I think down deep we all have had that same attitude when our heart has been broken. She was so full of herself as she explained that she went by her boyfriends and sure enough, there was this black Pontiac Firebird at his house, knowing full well that it was the NEW girlfriends car.
So she got down very low and crept over to the black Firebird and proceeded to let the air out of the tire. "I know I’m bad, but so was he and I hope his new girlfriend has a flat tire when she tries to drive home" were her words. Knowing that my daughter can’t even put air in her own tire, I asked her how she knew how to do this?

Mom, it was so easy, you know the little cap on the tire thing? Well, I just took off the cap and threw it in the bushes. Yup!, I’ll bet her tire is flat by now! I could not hold back the laughter, all I could envision was my daughter crouching down by the black car and feeling the excitement of revenge as she tossed the little plastic cap into the bushes. She asked me what was so funny? I could barely bring myself to tell her that her little act of getting even was not going to work as just taking off the little cap would do nothing at all.

So much for a woman scorned.

Michelle, she gets thumbs up for giving it a go! I had a friend who put foam insulation in her ex's tailpipe. Apparently it works great. He had to have his car towed and the repair bill was a good kick in his wallet as well. Not that I'm giving your daughter any ideas or anything like that *cough*. ;)

I thought you were going to say that she keyed the car or put sugar in the gas tank. I guess I am just more devious than she is!

Oh Michelle this made me laugh tonight. I can see it all in my mind. At least she tried! How funny. I hope she gets over her heart-break soon, that first love is a tough one to get over. Blessings to her.

I still remember the first time I got my heart broke and I really feel for your daughter and as a mother I'm sure it's hard for you to see her hurt.

Your daughter is darling! She could have done much worse and at least it made her feel better! She learned two things, boys are dumb and it take more than taking the cap off the tire thing to make a tire go flat! Dare I say...thanks for the giggle?!

So cool! what a great read! Would love to have seen your daughters face when she told you what she had done!! and I would love to have seen yours too!!!

I am new to your blog but so glad I found you! Even if it didn't work, what a great feeling for your daughter! I have gone through this several times with my daughter - it is so heartbreaking to see them hurting so badly and sadly it brings up feelings we all had at that age with broken hearts. Why is it the guy moves on so quickly?

We all have our children's first love dumping stories. My sons had similar dumpings by girls...and although their hearts are breaking and they wanted to "get even" I impressed upon them to remember, karma has a way of equalizing those events. What we do to each other as human beings truly returns to us 10 fold whether good or bad. I'm glad your daughter is feeling stronger and even more glad that her attempts to "fix him" were not of the vandalism kind. Hugs to your daughter. Sea Witch

DolceDreams said...

Good for her for giving it a go! And if it made her feel better, that is all that counts...She will only go on to better pastures! I can only imagine as a mother seeing her daughter in pain what YOU wanted to do! Sometimes age makes us wiser, but when the heart is involved I don't know!

Oh Michelle, I remember when my daughters boyfriend broke up with her when she was about 21 (she's now 28) and she was broken hearted and cried for days...it was awful...but she got over it. But she didn't get revenge like your daughter TRIED to do. Never mind ...perhaps it was for the best that it didn't work but at least she tried. XXXX

I don't know; I really don't think this is the type of behavior we should condone in our children. Why take revenge on the new girlfriend and her car? Tampering with someone's vehicle is not the best way to get revenge or the safest. The best revenge is moving on with your life and being a happier and better person than the one he dumped. As a teenager and young woman I was dumped and eventually they all came begging me to take them back. Yes, I wanted revenge but the best revenge was when they came back and I could tell them no, thanks I've moved on.
