(pronounced ven-DET-ta)

A very strong work that, in Italian, means revenge. A vendetta is never good. It’s usually a drawn-out progression of hostile acts performed to retaliate against and wage revenge on an opponent. At its most dramatic, it’s a blood feud, but hopefully that’s just in the movies. We don’t recommend participating in one of your own. Some of the most famous ones are between the Capulets & the Montagues and the Hatfields & the McCoys.

Example: Though they had been the best of friends in school and had worked together for over 11 years out of college, the two contractors had sadly waged a personal vendetta against each other for years due to a minor misunderstanding regarding a client relationship.
