Decades after her father had abandoned her, she received an email from him begging her to donate one of her organs to save his life. After reading his plea, a clever revenge plan came into her mind, and she told him she was ready to help him. 


The woman shared that her parents had parted ways when she was in grade 1 and her father mysteriously disappeared after stealing her mother's ATM card.

Since her mother had never said anything bad about her father, she always considered him her hero. However, her thoughts changed when she witnessed her father's strange reaction to her mother's second marriage.

When Redditor Laila_Anis shared how she took revenge on her father, most users applauded her decision of getting back at him.

Life became tough for the little girl and her mother after her father disappeared with her mother's ATM card. The man had withdrawn all of the funds from her bank account. 

Despite going through the worst time of her life, OP's (Original Poster's) mother never said anything bad about her ex-husband. She never badmouthed him in front of her daughter, so she always considered him her hero.

With her bags by her side, the little girl used to wait hours for her father to pick her up from her mother's place, but he rarely showed up. He only met with her once or twice a year. 

That email was an eye-opener for OP.

He never paid child support or cared for the little girl, but he lost his cool when his ex-wife decided to marry another man five years later.

"After my mom remarried, he let it be known that I was now my stepdad's responsibility," the woman stated. Soon, she graduated high school and was ready to step into the next phase of her life.

She never received any present from her father on graduating. However, he did write an email to her where he "thanked God" he didn't have to pay child support anymore.

He also criticized her mother's physical features and said she inherited all the "negative traits" from her. That email was an eye-opener for OP. It made her realize what her father thought of her mother.

However, she chose to write a kind reply to him, not knowing what he would say next. "He told me I was no child of his and that I was a waste," she recalled

After reading his mean remarks, OP decided to hurt him, but she didn't know how to do it. Ten years later, an opportunity knocked on her door in the form of an email from him. 

Since the man had diabetes, his vital organs were failing, but his name was at the bottom of the hospital's transplant waiting list. He needed someone from his family to donate an organ and help save his life.

His last hope was his daughter, so he wrote her an email, asking if she would like to donate her organ to him despite what he had done in the past.

When OP read the email, she decided to proceed with the donation process. She met her father and went for the test to see if she was a match. Fortunately, the reports revealed that she could save her father's life and they scheduled a surgery right away.

The man was more than happy that his daughter agreed to save his life, not knowing her plan. On the day of the surgery, she met him at the hospital and told him she wouldn't be donating her organ, and said:

"I just wanted you to know that you're no father to me, and you're a waste." 

OP headed back home and told her mother about her revenge. She shared that her mother thought she shouldn't have taken things that far.

"I'm sorry your dad is so awful. Your mom raised an awesome kid," Redditor Carbonatite replied to OP's story. Meanwhile, Redditor Danmufuka thought this was the best revenge story he had read. 

Since OP had refused to donate her organ, her father didn't have much time left. ghaster0699 said that her father "didn't deserve a funeral," to which she replied:

"His funeral will be a celebration of my mother."

OP wanted to "celebrate" her mother's achievement of raising children as a single parent and paying for all their needs. She shared that her mother took loans to provide the best for her children. 

Most Redditors felt OP's father deserved this kind of revenge because of what he had done in the past. On the other hand, some users asked OP if her father was alive, but she hasn't responded to their comments yet.

Questions to Ponder:

Do you think OP's revenge was justified?

OP's mother thought she went too far with the revenge, but most Redditors thought otherwise. They praised the woman for drafting such a clever revenge plan to teach her father a lesson. However, some people might disagree as her mother did. What's your take on this?

Would you have helped your father if you were OP?

It isn't easy to refuse when a family member asks you to save their life. However, OP still refused to help her father because she resented him for hurting her and her mother. Would you have done the same if you were OP? Or would you have helped him?
