The story begins with a husband (Redditor “Toastedchillies”) who loves to cook and provides his wife with a daily bagged lunch. However, the wife soon complained that her food was disappearing once every couple of days. To identify and discipline the thief, a plan was hatched between the pair to bait the fridge with buffalo wings which had been laced with Ghost chili powder and a couple of drops of Blair’s 4am Reserve, which is more than 7,000 times spicier than Tabasco and is apparently supposed to be portioned out with 1 drop per 5 litres of liquid.
After testing some of the concoction to ensure he wasn’t about to kill someone (he describes himself as “a bit of a chilli head”), he sent the revenge wings off with his wife.
“Needless to say just before lunch, there was a shrill from the kitchen, a young male colleague decided to help himself the my wife’s lunch which was clearly marked with her name. He ran to the toilet and vomited over and over. Apparently the moans sounded like he was dying. My wife just sat there innocently pretending nothing was wrong. Needless to say she has not lost a single lunch since.”
Swift and satisfying justice if you ask me.
