“I never did it to you, I knew the pay-back would have been so much worse.”
From sibling revenge in the bathroom to parkour street crews in Western Sydney, this week we’re talking about Getting Yours. But that expression can go both ways, sometimes you get what you’ve earned, and sometimes you just get what you deserve.
