The Ultimate Revenge

Have you ever had a local watering hole that you liked? It was comfortable, and homey. Then it sold. And the new owners decided they needed a new clientel?

Tim Platt of Hampton-in-Arden, England, has. The local pub that he had patronized for three decades recently changed hands and was being redecorated. He complained to some friends in the pub one night, and was overheard. He received a postcard in the mail telling him he could take his business elsewhere.

When the old landlord put the building up for sale, Platt bought it, and is returning the town's local back to its original condition.

There's a Klingon saying, "Revenge is a dish best served cold." And so is beer.
