I have an old job reference that states:

“Rob is driven by hate”.

Amazingly, they meant it as a compliment.

Despite my friend Michael believing I am incapable of such an emotion [but then he’s a beautifully misguided German] they’re right.

OK, maybe hate is too aggressive [damn you Michael!] … because when I encounter something – or someone – I don’t like, I use it to push me further rather than push them down.

This is not a new thing.

I wrote about it way back in 2011 … but even now, hate – or whatever we want to call it – has the affect of pushing me to learn, grow and try more stuff than I’ve done before because I want to do things better than whoever or whatever the focal point of my distain, achieved.

Does it always work? Nope.

Is it obvious to them I’m doing it? Hopefully not.

Can it sometimes be ignited by me being petty and pathetic? Yep.

But for all the potential unpleasant side of this characteristic, it gave me a work ethic that helped me achieve far more than any talent I have, could achieve – hahaha.

I say all this because a friend of mine sent me a photo of another persons version of creative revenge.


It’s it utterly glorious?

Apparently, they did it because their partner said they wouldn’t hang up the washing.

OK, so they’re not using their hate to drive themselves forward … but they’re definitely using it to release the anger.

An act of personal vengeance that leaves no pain or blood on the intended victim while, at the same time, gives the aggressor a sense of satisfaction, peace and revenge.

That’s not easy to do.

But creativity found a way.

It always does.
