Revenge pawn

I heard something on the radio this morning of a new social phenomenon called 'revenge pawn'. I didn't catch all of it, but I assume that piqued jiltees have been placing into hock the intimate possessions of their recent jilts, subsequently destroying the associated pawn tickets. The hapless jilt then suffers the embarrassment or frustration (depending on the nature of the pawned items) of seeing his or her most personal belongings on show to the world in the window of the pawn shop, where they are doomed to remain owing to the destruction of their tickets. I cannot believe such a phenomenon will ever catch on, as it seems to be a singularly un-redeeming experience for all concerned.
