The "fairer sex" we’ve all been screwed over in one way or the other, with the screwers often walking away unscathed. Old story, right? But what if FOR ONCE the "unfair sex" (and even some of our own) actually got what’s coming to them? Lover, husband, husband’s bit on the side, boss, child minder, neighbour, loan officer, auto mechanic, milkman, whomever. Ladies, it’s time to settle the score! Who says revenge ain’t sweet?
