What Would You Wish on Your Worst Enemy?


There's an old expression that we sometimes use when confronted with something really awful: I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy. Which begs the obvious question: what would you wish on your worst enemy?

As it happens, someone has already thought about that, and offers you a resource to identify things to wish on your worst enemy. You can check out the entire list here, but if you just want a few to start you off (with a few additions of my own), here you go ...

Utterly indestructible clamshell packaging on everything they buy.

Flimsy one-ply toilet paper everywhere they go* (this one's for you, Eddie!).

A predisposition to hitting "Reply All" by accident.

Seat back, meal on lap, drink in hand, telephone and remote on the other side of the room.

Mosquito bites between their toes.

The world's smallest bladder.

Their name on every telemarketer's call list ...



A seat next to a proud and long-winded grandparent on very long flights. In coach.

So, Dear Readers, what would you wish on your worst enemy? Leave a comment ... we can use the ideas.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.
