Abuse is short-lived. But Revenge can last a lifetime?

Brand Killer Robots reveals::
I was talking to a gentlemen in his 80's at a car boot fair the other day and he was telling me about his time fighting in Korea. Apparently he was a member of an infantry unit and whilst over there got knifed in the back. Not by a Korean as it happens. But by an American Seargent who seemed to have taken a disliking to the British, whilst they were together in the officers mess.

Anyway, to cut a long story short, the fight ended up with the old guy winding up in hospital for a month. Whilst he was convalesing his unit went into battle and all of his comrades were killed.
When he got out he went looking for the American Sergeant, but was told that his unit has shipped back home.

The old guy was also shipped back home, left the army and started a career as a GPO engineer.

What i found very strange about the old guy was that he still spoke with passion about what had befallen him and his comrades. In fact he told me that he intended to travel to the USA the very next year and seek out the American seargent in question. He told me that when he saw him he intended to walk right up to him and look him in the eye. Then shove a knife into his belly. He said there will be no stabbings in the back from me, but i do intend to avenge my comrades who would still be alive today if i had been there.

That Seargent cheated me and them out of a lifetime of comradship.

Why shouldn't he suffer too?

Just shows that revenge can run a lifetime. So better not stab anyone in the back had you?
