We all despise the relentless flood of spam mail clogging up our inboxes. You know the drill – we sign up for a company’s emails for a tempting incentive, like a juicy 20% discount, and suddenly, you’re bombarded with annoying emails week after week. Even after you unsubscribe, they have an annoying tendency to end up back in your inbox. But you’ve gotta admit, this revenge story is pretty hilarious.
There’s this random guy who, fed up with the spam, decides to outsmart the system. He signs up using a ‘fake’ email, just a random Gmail account with his first initial and last name. Unbeknownst to him, someone else actually shares the same first initial and last name. Cue the spam apocalypse, with dozens and dozens of emails flooding the poor doppelganger’s inbox every day.
After the OP endured the relentless spam of emails for years, a happy accident occurs – a spam email gets sent to and reveals the random guy’s home address. That’s when the OP hatches the ultimate revenge plan. Needless to say, he doesn’t get this random guy’s spam emails anymore.
