I am not much big on social media with only like a hundred followers or so...mostly friends and family. But I have made sure they all know I am big on coffee! I live and breathe coffee if you may!
I often post reviews of different coffee shops on my social media and I experiment a lot at home too. One lazy morning, with nothing better to do, I decided to share one of my very own "secret" recipe of coffee on social media. The idea was to make more people fall in love with coffee and learn the secrets to enjoying a truly mesmerizing cuppa!
But a few weeks later, one of my friends brought to my attention that someone quite influential on the social media space was using my recipe to commercialize it and making some quick bucks! I checked it out and it was the "exact" recipe I had posted. So I decided to order a packet and see if it actually was the real deal. The delivery came the next day and it was the real deal! I paid for my own recipe! People were paying for MY recipe! F**ing 'ell!
I was willing to let it slide as just a mere coincidence. But this repeated again when I posted another one of my "secret" coffee recipes! Not so secret anymore eh!
I never considered monetizing my love for coffee, but someone else "using" my love to make a fortune was beginning to boil my blood. He was doing his business at the local level only. But when he decided to take it big nationally and hold an exhibition and start selling MY coffee recipe to make himself a buttload of money is when I got truly vengeful!
If he had to resort to using the only 2 recipes he stole from me to conduct business, I could sense he was probably not creative enough and he would need as much recipe as he can to sustain his business long term. And this theory is what I based my entire revenge plot on!
That night I posted another "secret" recipe, but this time as the secret ingredient, I chose a herb that is a laxative LMAO! Being a doctor this was common knowledge to me, but that git who relies on stealing others' ideas would most likely not be aware of it. I also added a footnote to my post - This new herb will work like magic on both my previous recipes too!
I set the privacy of the post so that only the culprit in question would see it, and none of the others on my list.
The exhibition was one week away. That should give that fool ample time to mix my new, magic herb to all his coffee mixes!
A week later, news spread like wildfire all over the country of how an influencer on social media was trying to sell some weird coffee that was giving people instant Diarrhea! Needless to say, that was the end of his business with my recipes!
Nicely done 🙌
I enjoyed this one a little too much. Great delivery:)
Hahaha glad you liked it! It took me a while to come up with the revenge plan!
Haha! revenge-plotting is too much of an important task that should NEVER be rushed 😆😉
Oh, that’s excellently funny. Oh, my word I can just imagine the backup at the loo! Very imaginative 🤗☕️🤗☕️🤗❤️🤗🤩💕🤩🤩✨✨✨✨✨
I was thinking exactly the same as I came up with the idea 😂😂
Glad you had a laugh! 😁
Ah, coffee! What a wonderful and magical beverage! I love the way it smells, the way it tastes, and the way it makes me feel. It's like a warm hug in a cup, and it's the perfect way to start my day. I love the way it can bring people together, and the conversations that can be had over a cup of coffee. It's a great way to relax and unwind, and it's a great way to get creative and inspired. Coffee is truly a magical elixir, and I'm so thankful for it!
And thanks doc! for sharing your amazing words of these blissful experiences with coffee at your introduction ...
everyone loves a revenge plan :)
