A woman has revealed the extent she went to to get her own back on a man who was rude to her and her friend, in a campaign of subtle trolling over the course of 15 years.

While most people dream of getting dramatic (and probably illegal) revenge on the ones that have wronged them, Linda Solley Hurd revealed how she managed to make one man's life hell over the years in a way that is just enough to be seriously annoying without landing any jail time.

She took to TikTok to reveal how it all began by hopping on the 'Susi stitch' trend, using the audio of a girl claiming people may call her "crazy" for not liking store-bought pesto.

Linda revealed that it all started 15 years ago when she and her friends from college had gone to a comedy show and one of them accidentally caused the man sitting behind them to spill his drink on himself, prompting an abusive response from him.

The friend apologized profusely to the man but he continued to hurl insults at her before spitting at her, at which point Linda shouted at him that he had assaulted her friend, and he turned the tirade on her too.

After this, she confirmed she and her friends "move on with our night, we do not move on with our lives."

The following day, Linda tracked the man down on Facebook where he had made it clear that he was obsessed with Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead - which led her to come up with the perfect way to get back at him.

As it was at the time the shows were airing for the first time, one episode would be released a week and everyone did their best to avoid seeing any spoilers and ruining the surprise.

No such luck for the unnamed man, however, as Linda soon set about creating multiple fake Facebook accounts and scouring the internet for spoilers to send directly to him, to ensure he'd never be able to enjoy an unspoiled episode of his favorite shows ever again. Every time the man blocked one of the profiles, she would create another and send him more spoilers to rile him up.

She continued doing it for a few months before she got "over the grudge" until she found out that she had a class with him the following semester.

After he began annoying her by "playing devil's advocate" for every "trash opinion" possible in the class, she decided it was time to ruin his peace once more, but found it harder as he'd stopped listing his interest publicly online.

However, her breakthrough came when he was about to screen share a presentation in class and she spotted a username in one of the tabs on his screen, which she soon tracked down to a Reddit account, which wasn't as big a platform then as it is now.

She began sending him spoilers after finding out more about his interests on Reddit, before eventually moving on and forgetting about him for "another eight years", before seeing a post from a friend announcing she was engaged to him.

Linda revealed she hadn't thought of him "until I see a friend of a friend who is like an angel - I don't know her but I know she's an angel - they get engaged. I find out they're pretty close to their wedding."

She decided to revisit his Reddit to find out what he'd been up to in the interim, adding: "I see some pretty sinister stuff on his Reddit. There are pictures that he’s passing off as her and things like that. Really sinister stuff. If it was your partner, you would want to know."

Linda soon hopped back onto one of her fake accounts and sent all of the information she'd found to his fiancée so that she could see what her husband-to-be had been posting before she actually married him.

The woman then thanked "this random dog-groomer account profusely" before breaking off her engagement, revealing that she later went on to have "beautiful children, a thriving business, and seems to have a happy marriage" to someone else.

She finished her post by saying: "I don't know what he's doing but yeah, you shouldn't assault women and call them b***hes."

Linda also captioned her post, which has amassed over 4.1million views: "This is genuinely unhinged. And I do have permission from his ex to share this."

Her post was flooded by comments from users floored by the admission, writing: "Your pettiness ended up saving that girl and I applaud you for that," and: "you SAVED her!! & the spoiler idea is Soo good and petty lol," to which Linda replied: "Hurts nobody but it’s chicken soup for my soul."

Others added: "When you said '8 yrs. later' I almost died. Patience top tier," and: "This is my fave stitch of this. I love that he has no idea that he is still paying for that night," while someone else added: "Wow. That is so scary…and yet genius!"
