Anna Mackowiak, 34, is facing jail after taking her revenge on her ex boyfriend, 45-year-old Marek Olszewski, when he asked her to help with a toothache just days after he broke up with her.
“I tried to be professional and detach myself from my emotions,” Mackowiak, 34, told The Daily Mail. “But when I saw him lying there I just thought, ‘What a bastard.’”
The woman reportedly gave Olszewski, 45, a dose of anaesthetic necessary to pluck out his teeth one by one. After that she wrapped his jaw in bandages to prevent him from opening his mouth — and then simply walked away.
“I knew something was wrong because when I woke up I couldn’t feel any teeth and my jaw was strapped up with bandages,” Olszewski revealed.
“She told me my mouth was numb and I wouldn’t be able to feel anything for a while and that the bandage was there to protect the gums, but that I would need to see a specialist,” the victim told reporters.
“I didn’t have any reason to doubt her, I mean I thought she was a professional. But when I got home I looked in the mirror and couldn’t f****** believe it. The b**** had emptied my mouth.”
He kept on talking: “The new girlfriend has now left me saying she can’t be with a man without teeth. And I’m going to have to pay a fortune on getting indents or something.”
Mackowiak is being investigated for medical malpractice and abusing the trust of a patient. She could face three years in jail.
Well, it’s a well-known truth that an angry woman’s revenge can be quite dangerous. However, there was another story when a woman paid back to her dad’s would-be murderer, twelve years after a Palestinian militant tried to kill her father on the streets of Jerusalem.
“Someone tried to kill my father and I couldn’t just accept that,” says Laura Blumenfeld, a Washington Post reporter and author of the new book, Revenge: A Story of Hope.
Blumenfeld became obsessed with finding out who had fired the bullet that barely missed her father’s brain. “Who was the person, and was there anything I could do about it? How could I respond?” she wanted to know, reports ABC News.
The woman moved to Israel with her husband a got down to research the gang that was responsible. Clippings and documents from the prosuectors’ office in Jerusalem eventually led her to the Khatib family in a West Bank town called Kalandia.
The woman introduced herself simply as Laura, a journalist from America. The family welcomed her into their home, serving her coffee and orange soda. Lately Laura found out that that the youngest Khatib son, Omar, had been imprisoned for militant activities when he was 23 for trying to kill someone.
Which is more, the family was proud of Omar. Blumenfeld couldn’t believe it. “I was sitting in the living room with the family of the man who tried to kill my father, drinking orange soda and eating cake, and they talked about it in such a casual way,” she said.
Her relationship with the Khatib family improved and it paid off. Omar’s brother Imad agreed to smuggle letters back and forth.
Laura told Omar that she was writing a book and that she had met his target, a quiet, generous man who had lost his grandparents in the Holocaust, who “supports and likes Palestinians,” and who “taught that respect to his children.”
Blumenfeld traveled all over the world to explore revenge in other cultures, questioning religious leaders. In Albania she discovered that there is a guidebook outlining every detail of revenge for different scenarios.
When she came back home, she wrote one word on a piece of paper that she put in Jerusalem’s Western Wall, where millions of visitors insert prayers.
“I knew that it would take some kind of radical act to achieve that, something crazy and risky,” she says of her one-word prayer.
Blumenfeld finally saw Omar in person at a court hearing to review his case in 1999. The 36-year-old was trying to get out of prison on medical grounds because of his asthma.
When she met him in a courtroom she said she hoped he felt guilty for what he tried to do. And only then Omar and his family learned that Laura was a daughter of the man he tried to kill.
Omar spoke to Laura. “She chose the positive way of getting revenge from me,” he said. “And she succeeded.”
