How to Pull a 180 on a Narcissist — The Art of Reverse Crazy-Making

Are you tired of your Narcissist’s constant games?  Does he or she stage scenes in order to make you appear confused, hare-brained, or an all-out lunatic?  Do they insist you’re losing your mind when you ask them about your stuff they keep moving around in a twisted game of Where’s Waldo?

I can relate.  There’s nothing more frustrating than being under constant siege by a Narcissistic Ninny.  If you’re tired of your partner’s antics, why not give them a taste of their own medicine?  I offer the following suggestions to assist you in your endeavors.

Keep in mind that these recommendations require patience, attention to detail, and a strong sense of discretion.  The secret to successfully implementing these strategies is to pace yourself.  Most importantly, under no circumstance should you divulge to your Narc that you are the culprit when they begin to gradually feel the heat. Paying homage never felt so wonderful!

In the Closet

  • Carefully remove two buttons from one of his most expensive shirts.  Hang it back up and wait for the day of reckoning.  When he asks you about it, you’re clueless.


  • Choose a pair of his favorite shoes.  Replace the shoe laces with a pair of youth-sized strings so he can’t tie them when he puts them on.  Be mindful that the sham shoe-strings are the same color and texture.


  • When washing the laundry, put a whole bottle of bleach in his whites…let them soak a while.  Later, when he puts on his socks and underwear, they’ll put apart like string cheese.

In the Lavatory

  • Place a small drop of fish oil or cod liver oil into his preferred cologne.  Not too much.  Caution is key.



  • When the opportunity presents itself, see if you can interest Fido in exploring the culinary properties of the Narc’s toothbrush.

The Gift that Keeps on Giving

  • Write the Narc’s phone number, including the area code, on every $1, $5, $10, $20 you have. Spend them.



Reverse Gaslighting

Sweet Justice

Him:  How do I look?

You:  Fat man in a little coat…

Him: WTF did you say?

You:  That jacket is totally dope…what did you think I said?

Did you successfully exact a little justice?  How did your Narc react in the face of Instant Karma?

    lol- Love these- I managed to let kama take its course but wouldve totally tried these things at the time. My N ex-H managed to snag himself a woman who is EVEN WORSE than he is!!! I still get harassed by them ofc- but its mostly the now wife. He doesn’t actually seem that bad compared to her!!! Also- despite telling me numerous times before NC- that he wished he could leave- (several times over several years) He is too broke to do so and just stuck with her! Even better- she decided to have baby number 8 (blended family- 3 his, 2 hers, 2 together plus the new one together)- against his wishes!!!!!

    I just laugh now- its becoming a comedy- (years of hard work modified NC because we have children)- Big email rant about my 14 year old who had her door taken off its hinges for two days for constant slamming. Oh how I am the worst mother ever. Miss 14 is a shy child, who really needs her privacy. How dare I do that? and it went on.. and on… At first i was a little annoyed.. then thought .. Wait?? What???…. That child has NEVER had a room in their house- sleeps in the lounge room and has NEVER had even the illusion of privacy. I just had to laugh at the idiocy of the whole thing- She’s a loon and my ex-H N married her and cannot get away!!

    Whahaha! This made my day! Pity I already kicked out the narc. I do, however, have a narc co-worker. The phone number thingy is very appealing.

    I heard of one lady who put a handful of shrimp inside the curtain rods just before she left. The guy had to move out of the house. The source of the stench was never found by him. Brilliant!

    Thank you for this! So wish I had this “back in the day” but I’m happy to see you have “post” ideas too! This is exactly my type of humor. Harmless but helps you to feel like you’re not just getting crapped on with no recourse haha! More “post” ideas appreciated!

    A little google search for “Guarantted Acceptance Insurance” will bring up a gold mine of indemnity selling companies. If the application is filled out with phone #, the hungry agents will make numerous call attempts to sell the product. Have a heart ladies and help the poor soul find guaranteed healthcare. Eventually they will need something to cover them when the right woman comes along.

      LOL! That’s a great one…very funny! Ha ha!

      I haven’t had a good chuckle like this in several days 🙂

    Ha! You know I don’t live with the narc anymore but I will be doing the number on the money thing. Lol! AND I see his Craigslist ads. He put in all of them, “stop flagging my posts! Im an Anerican citizen and have the right to sell my things!” Lol. I dint know WHO’S flagging them, but I began flagging them too. Ha.

    1. Kim Saeed

      🙂 A lot of people got a kick out of the # on the money one.

    I personally got great enjoyment out of scrubbing the toilet with my narc’s toothbrush, then putting it back to dry. That was on my way out the door, BTW. 😉

    1. Kim Saeed

      Ha ha! So I’ve been told 🙂 I try to throw in a little humor every now and then to lighten things up a bit!

  7. Lol, It’s funny when I’m reading but I think any one of the above tactics will suffice. 🙂

    1. Kim Saeed

      Thanks! It’s really just for laughs, anyway. But, I have a good friend who once did the whites-in-bleach overdose. It was hilarious 🙂

      Its all hard to pull on the narc I know . As anything even things that go right become someone elses fault. Honestly her kids would get the brunt of it if anyone. karma has its own method n I enjoy watching it occur naturally.

      1. Kim Saeed

        I agree, I prefer to leave everything up to Karma…I just experience twisted bouts of humor from time-to-time. I did include a “disclaimer” 😀

    1. Kim Saeed

      I know…we all have a little “naughty” side 🙂
