... not sure if the use of the word "irony" is correct...
but if an apple employee throws a rock at the apple store, after being fired, is that poetic justice, or irony?... "people who live in a glass house, should not throw stones"...
I suppose if the definition of irony is
"an outcome of events contrary to what was, or might have been, expected." (dictionary . com)
then a thief that throws rocks at the store and gets caught because the glass door/wall didn't break would be irony... because you would expect the glass to break.
