Entitled Student Steals Designs, Gets Humiliated

This entitled and lazy student’s antics finally caught up with her. The revenge as it unfolded, could not have gone any better. Through a little coordination the classmate of “lazy student” and the teacher were able to set up a presentation, where lazy student was exposed for stealing multiple companies’ work. She gets a proper calling out in front of everyone, and hopefully absorbed the reality check for what it was. Do your own work!

She sometimes sends me over the sketches of the designs, and they all look amazing. (Then again, l'm not into fashion.) She is particularly interested in designing handbags and purses. She told me a story about how she shut down one of the most entitled, self-centered, lazy students on campus. Cast: Grace: Our main character

Text - Professor: The instructor of the course Story: At first, Grace and Jane got along just fine. They were both interested in similar stuff, and quickly became bffs. Grace decided to show Jane her sketches and designs for handbags and purses, and Jane was so impressed by it.

Text - stolen one of her designs. Thankfully Grace had multiple designs going on so there were no conflicts when it was her turn to present, but she was seething with rage. Grace had a meeting with the professor afterwards, and the professor knew what was going on, but couldn't really do anything with Jane because it turns out she was the daughter of the chairman (or one of the major investors, Grace said she can't recall). The chairman apparently blackmailed the professor into giving Jane the b

5.

Text - So you know how Grace had a bunch of sketches for the class? Well, Grace also had a separate sketchbook that had designs from major brands. MK, Coach, you name it. She never used these directly for class assignments, but rather as inspirations for her designs. Grace pretended to be all friendly with Jane again, and brought the other sketchbook on their meetings, still putting up with all the problems mentioned above. Grace secretly worked tirelessly on her new design, and did her best to

6.

Text - praise from the judges. After a few more presentations, the last one to go was Jane. Jane's presentation turned out to be another copycat, copying designs of not one, not two, but three different companies. After the presentation, this was how it went all down (at least according to Grace): Judge 1: So you are saying you designed all these by yourself, right? Jane: That's right Judge 1: And you swear that it really was your design, and didn't copy off from anything else, right?

7.

Text - Jane: I swear Judge 1: ..You are aware your designs are from (three brands)? .... Jane: huh? Judge 1: Are you aware that these are on market right now, and some of the most popular designs? Jane: Wait, hold on-

8.

Text - Judge 2: Yeah, I was going to bring this up. If you had worked for any brands, you would have probably been fired or worse case, sued Jane: But- Judge 2: Please, I am not done yet; Did you honestly think this would work? We (the judges) have been in the industry for over 10 years. We know a copycat when we see it. Jane: But these aren't even my designs! They are from Grace! Judge 3: (To Grace) is this true?

9.

Text - Grace: Yes, but l'd never use them for major projects nor call them my work; I just use sketches of them as inspirations for my own designs Judge 3: Well, that was clear from your presentation (Turning back to Jane) Now, Ms. Jane, this is a clear case of plagiarism, and I do hope your school is merciful on this matter. After the presentation was over, the chairman screamed at the professor in front of everyone, not realizing he just revealed all the blackmailing and the secret grade deal.

If the young lad had just gone about doing business in a way that was mindful and respectful of those around him, well, then maybe he wouldn’t have been ditched the 250 miles from home. Just picturing the kid having to call up his dad to come and get him at 3 in the morning, for a 500-mile-round trip is pure entertainment.

Text - r/ProRevenge + Join u/GhostOfSorabji • 122d 1 3 2 Apprentice engineer pisses off the crew... gets left behind 250 miles from home Lordy! I was reminded of this story after a recent phone call from an old friend. Rather a long one, so sincere apologies in advance. It's part O r/ProRevenge, part O r/EntitledPeople. Some years age, I got a gig working a weekend music festival. Fairly simple too: ten bands per day and all pretty standard rock 'n' roll fare. Bossman puts four of us out on the

Text - As it turned out this lad was about as much use as an aqualung to a trout, and had an entitled attitude the size of a mid-ranged African country. On the journey down in the truck, he was boasting as to how he was "a really good sound engineer" already and that "he could probably show us a few tricks." Oh, really? We get to the venue and get busy unloading the truck: we've got a 16-tonner stuffed to the gills with two sounds desks and about 16KW of sound gear for front- of-house and about

Text - to safely unload it and get it stacked up in place– except that, after unloading the first amp rack (all on wheels but still around 80 kilos), the Entitled Brat snottily announces that "I'm a sound engineer, not a humper.", and promptly strolls off. Err..okaaay... Well, we don't really need him gumming up the works- we're all well used to slinging boxes around, so about an hour later we've got the rig stacked up and strapped down, run out the multicore to the FOH desk, and are ready to st

4.

Text - Out of nowhere, the Spotty Oik emerges from whatever hole he had buried himself in and asks what he can do. I say, "I'm going to plug up front-of-house, perhaps you could help Hammer cable up the speakers." "I don't take orders from girlies!" (Quick side note here: Hammer was 5' 9", drop-dead gorgeous and as hard as nails-hence her nickname. She was also a damn fine FOH engineer and a bloody good mate.)

5.

Text - Boris, Chris and I collectively groaned inwardly and winced in anticipation of a full 16" broadside from Hammer (seriously, folks-you do NOT fuck with her unless you want the family jewels dangling from the nearest tree!) Instead she smiles sweetly (NEVER a good sign) and says, "well I'm sure you'll learn something useful." | then go off to play with cables FOH, while Boris and Chris busy themselves with the monitors. A while later I'm back on stage: Spotty Oik has wandered off again. Ham

6.

Text - Turns out that, despite cables and connector ports being well labelled, The Oik had managed to make a complete pig's ear of plugging up the amp racks. Trust me, it's very hard to make this kind of mistake. I found The Oik some moments later and told him that it was not the proper way of doing things, and that if he wasn't sure what to do that he should always ask one of us beforehand. What then came out of his mouth absolutely floored me: "I don't need to know all that shit. I'm a sound e

7.

Text - Hammer, who was standing a few feet away, snorted derisively and rolled her eyes heavenwards. It took me a few seconds to process this particular nugget of stupid: "Well, you HAVE to know how all this works; it's part and parcel of the job and as you're here to learn, I suggest you pay attention." "Well, you're just a bunch of roadies; what do you know?" Upon delivering this charming bon mot, he ambles off (again) leaving me to retrieve my jaw from off the deck and Hammer barely able to r

8.

Text - An hour or so later, we're all set up, and we now have a fair idea of the acts that are going to be performing. In situations like this, you rarely get the opportunity of a full-blown soundcheck so you have to rely on experience to set the desk up from cold. Luckily we got the first act onstage a half hour before the kick-off so I could quickly get a rough sense of the overall set-up. A bit of exposition: it's convenient to reuse channels

9.

Text - across acts, so I generally keep the first twenty or so channels for drums, bass and guitars, and the last half dozen or so channels for vocals. If a band comes in with anything else-percussion, brass, Tibetan nose flutes etc., we whack them on channels in the middle. Keeps things nice, simple and consistent across the board, and becomes important in a moment. The working procedure in-show is also simple: Dreadful Boris and Big Chris run the monitor desk, and Hammer and I run front-of hou

10.

Text - We also tasked the Spotty Oik with helping with the stage setups, which rapidly proved problematical. We finished the first act and aimed to do the turnover within fifteen minutes. Generally the incoming act will tell us their mic requirements and we'll write up a mic plot which then gets sent up to the front-of-house desk. Up comes Spotty Oik with the mic plot and he goes back to help with the stage setup. As l'm checking each mic, I notice that I cannot hear the vocal channels. No soone

11.

Text - channels (he can't hear them either). He then goes off to check the stagebox where all the mics are plugged into. From all the way out front, I hear him shout, "Fuck me!". Seconds later he's back on the cans: "Do you know what that fecking idiot has done? Only repatched ALL the vocal channels so that all the plugs on the stagebox are "lined up neatly one after the other!–his words!!" Ye Gods!

12.

Text - Boris rapidly repatches the mics and we're good to go again. A few hours later and I'm starting my second shift out front (I won't bore you with my experiences of riding herd on Spotty Oik on the stage shift which- shall we say- was interesting. Currently on stage is a rather nice jazz septet (I love doing jazz-give me a nice 20-piece big band and l'm a happy bunny). Up strolls He Who Shall Not Be Mentioned and asks, "When can I have a go at mixing. I'm really good, you know." Seeing as h

13.

Text - Wrong!! I've already set what I regarded as a sensible baseline on the faders for him to work with. First thing he does, he reaches for the master faders and cranks in another 15dB-NOO00O!!! Immediately the rig teeters on the edge of feedback and I rapidly pull the mains back. "Look and listen: balance out the two vocals, then the guitars, leave the mains alone!" He then starts making wildly inappropriate changes to the channels' EQ-again the rig starts to squeak. Ok,

14.

Text - enough! I shove him out of the way and bring it back under control. I won't fatigue you further with the endless catalogue of foulups and attitude that he managed to effect over the rest of the weekend, suffice it to say that despite the best efforts of myself and Hammer to try and teach this guy, they all went to naught. Couple this with the constant drip-drip-drip of snide commentary about how he was "really a better engineer" than the rest of us, and by the end of the weekend, we're al

15.

Text - Come the end of the event and it's now the fun part of striking the rig and loading out (I'm being sarcastic about the fun part, by the way). Two solid days and we're all knackered and the last thing we want to be doing is the get-out but, of course, it has to be done. It's always an all-hands-on-deck situation... except the Spotty Oik has, once again, vanished into the woodwork. Two back-breaking hours later and we're all done, and the truck loaded to go home. So where is the Spotty Oik?

16.

Text - We give it a good fifteen minutes-but no joy. We then decide to go look for him, so we spent another twenty minutes trolling around the site trying to find him. Again, he's done a disappearing act. We get back to the truck-it's now close to 3am–and almost simultaneously we say, “Fuck him!" . We climb back aboard and drive the 250 miles back to the warehouse to unload. Next afternoon, Bossman calls me to find out why we'd left the Spotty Oik behind. I gave him the Cliff Notes and was then

Bridezilla Announces Engagement At Friend’s Wedding

Man, that’s a low and self-centered move. This bridezilla is the queen of bridezillas. To seize the profound moment of your friend’s wedding to make an announcement about your own life situation, is the definition of toxic. That being said, it sounds like the bridezilla got what was coming to her for the stunt, years later. Can’t even imagine the look on her face when that pregnancy announcement came on the wire. 

Man, that’s a low and self-centered move. This bridezilla is the queen of bridezillas. To seize the profound moment of your friend’s wedding to make an announcement about your own life situation, is the definition of toxic. That being said, it sounds like the bridezilla got what was coming to her for the stunt, years later. Can’t even imagine the look on her face when that pregnancy announcement came on the wire. 

1.

Text - r/ProRevenge + JOIN u/yazdon • 3d 4 3 6 Don't announce your engagement at someone else's wedding, or this might just happen to you... (Originally I posted this to r/pettyrevenge, but I think it belongs here.) Last summer I was at a cousin's wedding. His bride and her family had been close with ours since before I was born, and the couple had known each other since they were toddlers, so it was a particularly exciting event for both sides of the family.

2.

Text - However, after the ceremony was over and the party had only just started, one of the bridesmaids decided to announce her own engagement. The attention was immediately taken away from the newlyweds and brought to the bridesmaid (who I'll call Sarah) and her equally-smug fiancé. My cousin's wife (I'll call her Emma) didn't make a scene or utter a single negative word about Sarah. She looked like she was on the verge of tears, but she kept grinning and acted very happy for the other couple.

3.

Text - Sarah later picked Emma to be the maid of honor at her own wedding, which took place last weekend (I wasn't there for it, but my cousin sent me some of the best bits on snapchat and explained the whole situation). This is where the fun begins.

4.

Text - Emma's two much-younger sisters were the flower girls at Sarah's wedding. At the very last moment, Emma switched out the white petals in their baskets to blue ones she had secretly brought with her. She told her sisters not to say anything about it or let the bride see them until it was time to scatter them down the aisle. Sarah looked very confused upon seeing the blue petals (which didn't coordinate whatsoever with her theme), but of course she didn't say anything about it in the moment

5.

Text - Finally, it was time for the speeches. The speeches took place in front of a massive screen, displaying a loop of photos with Sarah and her husband, which had been compiled by Emma.

6.

Text - Emma took the remote that controlled the presentation screen and at first she showed some pre-approved humorous photos of Sarah with Emma and other friends to facilitate a couple lighthearted jokes. Then, at the very end, Emma said to Sarah that she must be wondering why there were blue petals instead of the white ones originally planned. That was when Emma displayed the last slide from her presentation.

7.

Text - Emma announced in front of everyone that she was five months pregnant, and that she'd just discovered the baby was a boy, hence the blue petals. The last slide? Her ultrasound picture. There were shocked yells and gasps, Sarah had a fit, but those involved in the scheme cheered so loudly that I sincerely regret watching the snapchat recordings with headphones. Apparently Sarah had been very nasty to her bridesmaids before, driving several of them away and forcing the others to pay ridicul

8.

Text - Emma and my cousin were eventually thrown out of the party, but they were all smiles. Sarah's fuming mother went to confront her outside, and Emma retorted with, "Gentle, gentle! l'm pregnant!" T reckon Sarah doesn't speak to the majority of those bridesmaids anymore. [Tl;dr] Self-important bridesmaid announces her engagement at my cousin's wedding, stealing the spotlight from him and his bride. Said bridesmaid foolishly names my cousin's wife her maid of honour and behaves like a complet

Totally Random Things People Remember From Childhood

Someone on AskReddit got a fun thread going about the totally random things that folks recall from childhood. Some of these might hit close to home. It’s funny how unexplainable memories stick with us as we grow older and continue on walking through life.

So I did. The last thing I remember was looking back while running away and seeing him punching the bees. I don't know who he was or what happened to him. My mom has no recollection of this.

Either in preschool or kindergarten. It's a nice little calming flash of childhood that pops into my head every now and then.

Text - WeebNoob • 4h I remember when the Yorkie bars were advertised as "Not for girls!" Forward-thinking, aren't they? When I was six I got really upset because I wanted one but they were not for girls but I took that literally because I was a kid. Nowadays, I eat Yorkies a lot purely out of spite because I have never forgotten the torment they caused me all those years ago. They taste great, tho.

Text - hulagirlslovetoparty • 5h Bunny Man. Weird dude in a bunny suit used to roll up outside my elementary school on a custom bike, blaring creepy carnival music out of a portable record player (sped up, too, so the voices were high and warbled). It was a whole thing, parents were worried he was a pedophile and trying to groom or abduct a kid.

Woman’s Family Criticizes Fiancé’s Income

This woman asked the people of Reddit whether or not she was in the wrong for threatening to ban her family from the wedding. Sounds like the family was being all kinds of toxic, and they were trashing her fiancé’s income.

Text - Text - AITA for telling my family to stay out of me and my fiancé's financial agreement and that if they keep bothering me they can't come to the wedding Not the A-hole So my fiancé and I have a large wealth discrepancy. My grandparents gave me and my sister a large amount of money when they died, and I have a much higher paying job than him. He works just as hard as me, he just gets paid less.

2.

Text - Text - The way our finances work right now is I pay most of our day to day expenses but he gets me nice birthday and Christmas presents. Last Christmas he got me a really beautiful necklace that he wouldn't have been able to afford if I made him pay rent on the apartment. So he contributes just as much as he normally would if he paid rent, but this makes me feel better. The rent doesn't suddenly cost more because he lives here, I was paying it by myself anyway. My parents pestered me and

They had another meltdown and said that I was horrible for even bringing up the possibility that I wouldn't invite them to the wedding. Was that threat too far?

I wouldn't want someone who clearly isn't happy for me to be at my wedding either. If you're happy in that arrangement, they have absolutely NOTHING to say. horrible

And to be honest, it sounds like part of you being much more well off than him is luck, you just happened to have grandparents that were well-off enough to leave you a large sum of money when they passed. That's something that could have easily been reversed.

12.

Text - Text - androidis4lyf • 15h • Partassipant [1] NAH. You're upset because, rightfully so, it is your business and it is your choice. However, I am imagining that your parents are coming from a place of love and fear for their daughter, which is a normal parental reaction. Your man is on a good wicket. He doesn't have to pay to live at that level of lifestyle. To be fair, I would consider a prenup, because love can be blind and partnerships can turn sour.

13.

Text - Text - ColorfulToes • 20h NTA It's NBD that you make more than him and cover most of the expenses, regardless of what your family thinks A prenup is a good idea, and it has nothing to do with trust. It's just planning, and it can be fair to both parties. More than half of marriages end in divorce, so you will be against the odds if you stay together. Debt is a big factor. In my state, debt is marital debt no matter who has it, so a spouse can rack up hundreds of thousands in secret debt,

Never trust anyone 100%. Have you seen the divorce rates and how the usually end up for the person with more money? Yeah not good. No one gets married thinking about divorce and gold diggers, until shit hits the fan. I strongly suggest you read about prenups. I know you won't, and we are all just wasting time. Yo

My wife earns more than me by multiples , we both work hard , she's smarter than me hence more money. We have been married 30 plus years , love each other and get along great . If it works for you your parents need to suck it up and let's face it if the genders were reversed it would not be such an issue.

Woman Bests Water Department Workers

Nothing warms the heart like a nice case of petty revenge. It’s amazing it took them a whole year to notice. 

Nothing warms the heart like a nice case of petty revenge. It’s amazing it took them a whole year to notice.

Text - r/pettyrevenge + Join u/Angrycat11111 • ly Stupid woman bests water department workers My ex husband and I bought our home from his parents. They had the house built in the 50's. For years, father in law wanted to install a shutoff valve in the utility room to, you know, shut off the water to the whole house to do some repairs. Plumber told him it would cost a large amount of money because they could not find the shut off from the city water main at the street, the "buffalo box", a/k/a wa

2.

Text - When we bought the house, we decided to get the shut off valve installed. We called the water department and they sent 2 workers to shut off the water. When they arrived, I explained the problem. They went out to the front yard, walked around a bit and told me there was nothing they could do for me. According to the 2 workers, it was my problem that they could not find the buffalo box and that I should call a plumber to dig up my front yard, sidewalk, and city easement to find MY buffalo

3.

Text - According to these guys, as a woman, I did not know what I was talking about and they left. They were incredibly rude about it, but peons like these think they can get away with being rude to an ignorant woman like me. Fast forward to a year or so later. I get a call from the city manager asking why I hadn't paid my water bill for over a year. I told him that I wanted to pay my water bill, but I wanted them to first turn off my water. He was a bit taken aback that I WANTED them to turn of

4.

Text - So, I explained what the city workers told me about locating the buffalo box and their attitude about women not understanding those type of things. I also told him that if the city could not turn off my water, I would be happy to have free water forever, cuz I would never pay another bill. We had a nice long chat about the situation and he said that he would resolve my concerns. The next day, these same 2 guys show up at my house with some digging equipment and spend the whole day digging

5.

Text - They found the buffalo box, under the city owned sidewalk!! They fixed the buffalo box so it would be accessible and came the next day to fix the sidewalk. They asked if I wanted the water turned off, declined, and I told them I would have my plumber take care of it when we had him install the interior shutoff valve. And then I paid the water bill.

Former Flat-Earthers Moments Of Enlightenment

Someone on AskReddit got a fun thread going about the moments that former flat-earthers realized that the earth is indeed not flat. We love a good roundtable discussion involving newly enlightened flat-earthers. A strange bunch, but at least we get moments like this as a result.

On a flat earth map circling the north pole should be an extremely short trip while circling the south pole would be the longest route on the planet. The further south you get the further apart things should be and the longer trips would take. The flat earth map really falls apart there. Once they start arguing that time w

He acknowledges that he doesn't think like everybody else but insists that everybody else is wrong. I can't tell you the countless hours that I wasted in YouTube rabbit holes with him explaining the logistical ways the earth is flat, and that there is an ice wall encapsulating us to prevent the oceans from pouring over.

For people like that who are so entrenched within their ideology, the flat earth isn't just something they believe, it's who they are. They have flat earth friends, listen to flat earth podcasts, watch flat earth YouTube, and wear flat earth clothes to their flat earth meetings. Even if deep down, someone like that had an epiphany and realized that they were wrong, imagine how hard it would be to reject

The guy was highly rated in tattoo and his photo realistic style was exactly what I was looking for to commemorate my mothers passing 20 years prior. While he is setting up, he puts on the tv and the first thing that comes on is a youtube channel about flat earth theories. What followed was the wildest 4 hours I have eve or had strapped into a chair with a man going at my arm with a device that stabs my skin hundreds of times per second

Ultimately he realized that the path the ship was taking would be impossible if the earth was flat, based on the distance they were travelling vs their speed.

I just looked at him after that documentary and could not take him seriously. We broke up soon afterwards.

He discovered the majority of flat earthers are Trumpers with extreme political views and who agree with trumps stupid logic. Husbands flat earth ideas died that day.

Text - Hadrian_Haldol • 7h I think for flat-earthers it is less about proving the world is flat but more about to prove that there is a god. And in a certain way I get that you won't let this go. So in the end facts do not matter, I guess you could shoot a flat-earther to the moon and they would still find a way to explain that this was just a simulation or whatever.

Text - AngryAnchovy • 5h Former flat earthers here. It was the horizon. A flat earth could never explain the horizon. It surrounds the observer and it is typically assumed to be a circle, which we know it's not a true circle, drawn on the surface of a slanted model of the earth. That's why the earth is really a triangle. #TriangleEarth

Man Gives Himself Food Poisoning To Win Argument

Sales Manager Lies, Man Takes Supernova Level Revenge

This sales manager thought she was so clever, when it came time to run the performance review on the top performing sales rep. By the sound of it, the dude was crushing it. Unfortunately, the sales manager decided to treat that stellar performance with a heavy dose of dishonesty, and tried to make him out to be a poorly performing employee. Well, with the help of technology and a coworker who had some evidence on the manager’s indiscretions, she was quickly removed from her position. This is one of those revenge stories that’s just so sweet, you might want to read it again.

Text - r/NuclearRevenge + Join u/sting2018 • 1y My performance review that became my managers performance review Lots of folks over at O r/prorevenge suggested I post this, to summarize what happened: I was the top sales person, by a large margin at a location that was vastly under performing. My sales manager accused me of lying in front of the VP, I proved I wasn't lying, I then put out two more facts of information and as a result she was fired as a result of my performance review...enjoy. I

2.

Text - I was working with a B2B Sales company (we sold services to companies basically) And this company had managed to hire the most incompetent, lazy, and jealous sales manager I have ever come across. We were a team of 5 sales people and a sales manager, all 5 of us sales people hated our sales manager for various reasons but we liked her personally. I was the top sales person on the team, I was sitting at 170% of my yearly objective and was well on my way to presidents club. This is largely

3.

Text - Right off the bat Mrs. B hits me with "Sting you know our location hasn't been performing at objective for a number of years, and we suspect this is because sales people are misrepresenting their daily work" I'm ataken back. "Sting I don't think you are actually doing what you say you are doing in your CRM, this is something that could get you fired" I looked at Mrs. B and I said "Really?" she said "yea" | hit her back with "I'm shocked you decided to go this route" Mrs. B with a confiden

4.

Text - "Well Sting I'm not saying you never go in the field, I just think some days you stay at home and put in BS notes in the CRM" I said "Mrs B, pick a day, any day, pick a day you think I lied about my sales activities" So Mrs. B picks a day. Now I'm smiling ear to ear, and I'm fucking heated right now. I notice the VP is smiling at me and his head is slanted to one side, I suspected he knew Mrs. B was about to get absolutely fucking owned...and he was right.

5.

Text - So she gives me the day and I turn to the VP "Mr. VP are you aware of how android phones work?" VP responds "Enlighten me" I said "By default android has location services turned on, and in fact google will track where you went and when, naturally I carry my phone everywhere so lets compare what google says I did that day to what my CRM says"

6.

Text - So I pull up my google location services for that day, and surprise surprise is a match. Mrs. B is obviously very concerned at this point I said "I'm actually quite enjoying this performance review, lets pick another day Mrs. B" Mrs B fires back "We don't need to do that" I turn to the VP "Mr. VP would you mind picking a day?" He says "Sure what about XYZ" He pulls up my CRM, I pull my location services for that day. Guess what? Its a match.

7.

Text - I then get ready to pull out the big guns, "Mr. VP do you remember company XYZ with a contract value of excess of $1 million that we lost rececntly?" "Yes Sting I remember, apparently our competitor won them over on price we can't win them all" "Mr. VP, here is an email from their VP basically stating that they've decided not to go with us for our failure to provide 3 samples for them to decide on which product worked best for them" "Sting can you forward that to me?" "Sure not a problem

8.

Text - "Now Mr. VP I had our service department look to see if any orders had been placed for those samples, no orders were actually placed" He said "i'm going look into this" Mrs. B is fucking sweating mother fucking bullets at this point, my performance review has just turned into her performance review and shits not going right. "Mr. VP I have one more thing l'd like to bring to your attention, do you mind if I step outside for a minute so I can show you?" he said "sure, I need to have a talk

9.

Text - Now I need to mention that several years prior to this a general manager at another location raped a woman, the company was sued and lost a lot of money because of this. Since this incident the company put in a very clear cut policy "No sexual relations between management and people who work for them, its immediate termination for the manager" Now another sales consultant in the office, was named Joe. Joe was a married man with two beautiful kids and Mrs. B had the hots for him. She tried

10.

Text - All the sales staff knew what was going on, the mood in the office was lifted. Joe and I begin walking back to the conference room when the Location Manager who was not a part of the performance review saw Joe and I, he asked "Whats going on?" and Joe said "Your going need to hire a new sales manager soon" location manager was confused, he said he's coming into the meeting we said fine. I knocked on the door, Mr. VP said come on in so I did. There we stood, Joe, myself, and the location m

11.

Text - "Mr VP I just want to clarify a company policy" "sure" "Is it true that if a manager tried to engage in a sexual relationship with a direct report that its immediate termination for that manager?" Mr. VP sits up straight, takes a moment and goes "Yes, if something like that came to my attention my hands would be tied l'd have to fire the manager" I said "Well Joe has something he wants to show you" Mrs. B got up and walked out of the conference room, she was about to cry you could tell. H

12.

Text - The VP asked him to screen shot those and email those over, Joe said he would. Then the VP said "I'm going need both of you to go back to the sales office, the location manager and I have some talking to do" We walk back into the sales office, I noticed the sales manager office had looked cleaned out, apparently Mrs. B was balling, she was a wreck and crying, and said she was going home. Joe laughed and said "Yea she won't be coming back" It was about 20-25 minutes when the VP came into t

13.

Text - I sat down and the VP said "Well, I would like to inform you that Mrs. B has been terminated effectively immediately, with this being said after your performance review, and looking over your numbers you are our top sales rep in this location and deserve nothing short of stellar remarks on your review and you'll be getting that" I said "Thank you, I do have one question?" he said "Sure, anything" "How do I apply for new sales manager job that just opened up"

14.

Text - Mr. VP laughed and said "You sure do you like to strike while the iron is hot don't you?" I said I do, he said he would let the location manager know and l'd be able to put in my application. I thanked him and he said "No, thank you In my 35 years of being in sales and sales management that was by far the most interesting performance review I have ever witnessed" I did not end up getting promoted, I ended up quiting shortly after this

15.

Text - I ended up quitting shortly after this because they decided to not promote me and instead hired a guy with no sales experience to be our sales manager, and this rubbed me the wrong way. Also our service department sucked and couldn't deliver on what I was selling, and another company offered me more money

AskReddit Thread: English Language Rules That Baffle People

Someone on AskReddit got a fun thread going that has people who picked up English later in life, or as a second language, describing the parts about the language that baffles them the most. Learning new languages is certainly not an easy thing to do. Maybe some folks that have muddled through the disorienting process of learning a new language, or picking up English, will connect on a deeply painful level with these replies.

Karen Makes Neighborhood Miserable, Gets Fined, Goes Bankrupt

Man oh man, this Karen was on one. Sounds like she was running around the neighborhood meddling in everyone’s affairs, and bringing all kinds of negative chaos to the otherwise peaceful neighborhood. Well, eventually Karen took it too far. She shouldn’t have messed with those orchards. Fast forward, and she ended up being fined, going bankrupt, and having to sell her property. Ouch.

AT&T Tries To Lie To Customer, Customer Takes Revenge

This customer was having none of the shady antics, real or not, from AT&T. Sounds like the scenario involved some lies, some false marks on the credit, and ultimately manifested in the customer getting services switched off of AT&T, which cost the company thousands of dollars. Ouch, indeed. 

This customer was having none of the shady antics, real or not, from AT&T. Sounds like the scenario involved some lies, some false marks on the credit, and ultimately manifested in the customer getting services switched off of AT&T, which cost the company thousands of dollars. Ouch, indeed. 

1.

Text - r/ProRevenge + Join u/TheThinGreenGiant • 5h AT&T tries to screw me over $139, I actually screw them out of $72,000 Skip to the bottom for the TL;DR if you don't want to read about my arduous trip through customer service hell. After my wife and I got married last year we decided that we should both get on the same phone plan. We went down to the AT&T store and met with a rep who told us we'd both be on an unlimited plan for $70/mo all-in, including taxes and fees. I was very specific

2.

Text - about getting the all-in price for the service. It seemed like a decent deal, so we signed up. 2 days later I log in to the website and see that there's already a bill for $139. I call up a rep to see what's up and they tell me that between the activation fees, taxes, and surcharges, the bill was correct. I told them what the salesperson told me and they basically told me to pound sand. I promptly told them I wanted to cancel the service and wanted the $139 waived. They said they could ca

3.

Text - So I figure since I already have to pay for the month, and I don't want to lose my phone number I will just get a new carrier and cancel when I'm ready. So I do my research and find Visible (which is EXCELLENT), and we make the switch. I call back to AT&T and inform them that we have switched carriers and want to cancel the service. I again ask for a refund. The rep informs me that since I have had the service for 4 days thatI am not entitled to a refund. He tells me to read the fine prin

4.

Text - 3 days to cancel for a full refund. I'm now fuming because the first CSR that I talked to on day 2 denied me a refund if I canceled. I ask for the next level of CSR and they send me to a customer care and retention person. I explain the entire fiasco to him, and how I feel that I have now been lied to twice by AT&T reps (sales rep and first CSR). He is a really cool guy and apologizes and says he'll take care of it and will completely waive the bill. I am very thankful and hang up thinkin

5.

Text - Fast forward a month and I get an AT&T bill in the mail saying my payment was not received and is now late. I again pick up the phone and call AT&T. I eventually make my way through 2 CSR reps until I get back to the customer care and retention department. This time I did not have the chill dude, instead, I got a very smarmy woman who said that the bill was due and l'd owe the entire amount. I asked her to please check the CSR notes and that the last guy told me he would waive the amount.

6.

Text - Two weeks go by, no response. I call again. This time I get a very nice lady that is sympathetic. She says she'll waive the bill. She comes back and tells me that she can't do anything because the BILL HAS ALREADY BEEN SENT TO COLLECTIONS. She said not to worry and that she'll send a letter to collections to have them waive the debt. I ask if this will go on my credit report and she says no, and that they'll take care of it. Six months later I get a letter in the mail from Sequium Asset S

7.

Text - I get an alert that I have a negative mark on my credit. I go in and sure enough Sequium has indicated that the amount is in collections. I immediately write letters to all three bureaus requesting that they remove the remark. A month goes by and every single one of the bureaus removes the mark (thank God). Another 3 months go by and then I get a letter from Sunrise Credit Services in NY again trying to collect on the debt. This is truly unbelievable because it appears that Sequium couldn

8.

Text - That's where this part of the story ends. Who knows what will happen next? I could file a lawsuit but the filing fee alone would be more than the amount owed. Here's the thing; I am not cash strapped. I am blessed enough that I could easily pay the $139 without making a dent in my budget. I have lost 5x that amount in hours spent on the phone and writing letters. But I am determined to go to the mat with AT&T on principle alone.

9.

Text - This brings us to the revenge stage. You see, in addition to my day job as an attorney, I am an elected city councilman in my town, and when I was going over our monthly expenses I noticed that we were paying AT&T close to $6,000 A MONTH for our phones, internet, and TV services. We're a fairly small town so it was pretty obvious that we were being bent over by these clowns and that we could save a ton of money by switching. I started working with our City Manager and IT Director on findi

10.

Text - meeting agenda and the council voted to pass it. We decided to completely cut ties with AT&T. Our city is saving a ton of money, getting better service, and with the money we saved from switching we were able to hire another part-time animal shelter employee which we desperately needed. I highly doubt our city would've considered switching if I didn't make such a stink about it. AT&T will end up losing hundreds of thousands over the coming years because of this. I hope it was worth it AT&

11.

Text - TL;DR AT&T lied to me 3+ times, put false marks on my credit, and made me spend countless hours on the phone and sending letters to fix it. I am a city councilman and found out we could save 50% by switching all of our services from AT&T which saved our City thousands and cost AT&T a $72k a year contract. Edit: Thanks for the Gold!

Man Tries To Control Girlfriend’s Money

Sounds like there could be quite a bit of selfish entitlement at play in this relationship, as it has been described. The guy offered to fund his girlfriend’s living requirements, so that she could work on paying off her debt as soon as possible. However, she decided to take this and basically use those privileges to continue living in whatever way suited her fancy. 

And most importantly, not in the way that she agreed upon with her partner. Money is a tricky thing, and it looks like there’s one person who is potentially leeching off the other person, through being strategically deceptive. Maybe this relationship isn’t meant to be. Who knows?

Text - raghanmae • 11h NTA. You're offering her a hell of a deal and not just in the structure of the agreement, but in the financial responsibility you have in your head to offer yourself and her. You're securing a strong future by being aggressive and responsible with money and paying back debts, and she's just along for the ride. Even if you were being controlling with "her money," she's still super wrong for how she approached the situation by assuming you'll just pay everything off for her

Many people would be thanking their lucky stars to be able to pay off debt under the circumstances you've stated. And she took advantage of it. Id reassess moving forward with the relationship, not just because you two have such different ideas on finances. But also because she seems to think th

AskReddit Thread: Ways Workers Got Their Bosses Fired

Text - r/entitledparents + JOIN u/Top_Gorilla17 • ly 2 9 3 14 Let them eat cake. Long ago, way back in the before-time, I worked for one of those bulk warehouse club stores. My trade was simple: I was a wrangler of the silver buffalo, and dutifully retrieve the ol' ghetto strollers I did.

2.

Text - The job in-and-of itself wasn't the worst l'd ever had; I got plenty of exercise, got to be outside and generally didn't have to interact with the 'members' (calling them customers was taboo) for the most part. For the most part. The thing about this job is that the company I worked for had a- reputation- for being cheap. Thusly, more often than not, I was on my own out in the parking lot. "Big whoop," you might say. "You gathered carts? You should see how hard MY job is!" Yeah, well... S

3.

Text - bulky, hard-to-control flatbeds. On top of that, whenever someone needed help loading their haul into their minivans, I was the guy they called. You know, because the greeters, cashiers, and managers were all busy. As you might expect, one man cannot be in multiple places at once, and as a result, on some of our busier days it became incredibly difficult to keep enough carts in the vestibule. Our story begins on one of these days...

Text - So there I was, chugging along like a good worker drone, struggling to keep up with the sheer volume of people coming in to buy cheap bulk goods. Sure enough, I get a call on the radio: Manager - "[sktchh] Top_Gorilla17.? We need you to help some members load their purchases. [sktchh]" Me -"Uh, l'd love to, but l'm barely able to keep up out here as is..." Manager - "[sktchh] Just do it, Top_Gorilla17. You can afford to stop gathering carts for two minutes. [sktchh]"

Text - Ron Howard - "He couldn't." I didn't want to push my luck, so I complied. After spending 20 minutes loading people's purchases because when one person needs it, suddenly they ALL need it, I came back to find my vestibule a near-ghost town, save for a single line of carts that was half-gone, and... The Karen. I won't waste time describing this specimen. She was the prototype. You know what she looked like.

Text - There she stood, menacing, tapping her foot with such speed that could make any metal drummer green with envy... You could collect the contempt in her gaze in a jar. Karen - "Where are the big flat ones?" I blanked for a moment. Me - "I'm sorry?" Karen - "Ugh. Mexicans..." For the record, I'm very much white. Karen - "WHERE. ARE. THE. FLAT ONES."

7.

Text - Me - "Oh, you mean the flatbeds. I'm sorry, I was just helping some other members load their merchanise and haven't had a chance to-" Karen - "OH MY GOD, I don't care about your excuses, you have ONE JOB, and a TRAINED. MONKEY. Could do it!" I just want this lady out of my face, so I don't fight it. Me - "Sorry ma'am. I'll grab one from the parking lot for you..." Karen - "You'd better..."

8.

Text - So I go back out to the lot and find a whole line of flatbeds sticking out of a corral blocking several parking spaces. I push them all into the vestibule where she waits, huffing about how I'm wasting her valuable time. I separate one from the rest and bring it to her. Me - "I'm terribly sorry about the wait, ma'am." She leers at me with utter malice. Karen - "Hmmph. Unbelievable..."

9.

Text - And with that, she dismisses herself into the store, where she will be someone else's problem.I shake my head and return to doing what I'm paid to do. About fifteen minutes later, I'm returning a line of carts when I see her pushing her flatbed to her Miata and jawwing about 'stupid people' (most certainly referring to me) on her cell phone. You know what she had bought? What she had insisted on having a flatbed for? A cake. This wasn't even like, a big cake. It was one of those little ci

Pro Revenge: Karen And Kevin Win The Battle, Lose The War

Man, oh, man, Karen was in dire need of the reality check. With all the subordination at play, it’s a wonder how she thought it wouldn’t eventually backfire on her. What a fine example of how one can win the “battle”, but certainly go on to lose the war. Can just picture Karen and Kevin squirming in their seats.

First the regular stupid warning for all you OCD's: ON MOBILE, ENGLISH IS NOT MY LANGUAGE, LONG STORY NO TL;DR. Go have fun with someone else. Second: this story involves legal issues, so names and identifying details were changed.

Text - And now for the fun part: This story if about 5 years old, and some of it, as you will read in the end, is still rolling, probably will for a long time. It starts with mrs. P, as principal, because that's what she is. Mrs. P started as a special needs kids care taker, study through the years of work, and graduated a doctorate in special education. After 20 years of experience in this, she was asked by the council of a medium size city to open and run a new special need school in the city.

3.

Text - She accepted the offer, and after 4 years she had a school with 150 kids in it, for special education school, that is HUGE number. Such schools need way more people than regular school, not just teachers, but also other care takers, and the job isn't always clean and easy. So naturally mrs. P is always looking to hire.

P school board, and she recommended her with very warm words, Karen was basically hired beafore she even sent her resume.

Basically their future is laid bright and clear, all they

While teachers and nurses and other members all worked together hard to get the school up to shape, including painting the walls, setting equipment, and other choirs you don't learn in college, Karen fixed her own room, sat in it all day and played with her phone.

Eventually mrs. P calls Karen again to ask her how she is and when she will be back, when Karen says she can't handle the pressure and wants to quit. Mrs. P is stunned by this.

He gets the obvious answer, Karen has no right to payed sick leave, he gets angry and promises to check his options, which in lawyers terms is "I want to sue you". Now it's clear that the bridge was burned and Karen will not be back. Mrs. P started looking for replacement, and the options aren't great.

The school graciously agreed and Kevin's letter was removed, but the firm letter, admitting Kevin's fraud was published instead. Kevin was done in the business. Any lawyer who he came to look for a job asked him why he "left" the big firm beafore he got even past the first stage, and a simple search of his name showed he committed fraud, against a special education s

Text - Meanwhile Karen kept looking for a job in her field. She had to wait until a new school year will begin. Her college professor was not willing to write her any recommendation, and she had to explain the missing year in her resume to any principal. Few school principals heard she worked with mrs. P and called her to ask about Karen, which mrs. P only said that due to legal issues she can't talk about Karen, and it is all explained in the "legal" section of the school website.

Text - That was enough, any principal who knows Karen suede her former school will not dare to hire her. Karen lost that school year, and to support herself began looking for other jobs. She found a job as a secritay in an office that didn't Google searched her name and worked there for a couple of month, until the manager got bored one day and decided to search Karen's name. She was fired the next day for a minor F-up. It is more than 5 years since it happened. Kevin is a lawyer in a sleazy fir

He also asked to remove the video. The lawyer just told him that it is what he agreed on, and if he wants to re negotiate he will demand Kevin to pay for damages. He didn't specify what damages, and Kevin didn't ask, he gave up, Karen and Kevin admitted defeat, they lost the war. Mrs. P eventually removed

So he turns to look at the vast array of bowls behind him, some sauce-sized, some entree salad-sized, and many in between. And we realize that neither of us knows what size the kids' ice cream is intended to be. So he thought, "I know what to do. l'll simply ask a manager."

Tyrannical Landlord Scams Tenants, Gets Dealt Justice

Many years ago, when I worked for a rent-to-own company in a small town, there was a little apartment complex which we made frequent deliveries to, and just as frequently had to repo from. It had been a motel when it was built, and the owner turned it into apartments by just making doorways in the walls between rooms, putting a kitchen and living room in one and a bedroom in the other. The place wa

2.

Text - Between deliveries and pickups, we were visiting this place multiple times per month, but the landlord wouldn't let us park the truck in the parking lot to do it. It was a motel parking lot, so there was way more space than the tenants needed, and plenty of room for our truck, but the minute we pulled into the lot, the landlord would come running out of the office and yell at us to get the truck off his property. We were still allowed to deliver and such, we just had to carry the couches

3.

Text - Then the day came that I was visiting some customers, a young couple, to have them sign an extension because they couldn't make their payment, and I saw an eviction notice on their door. I knocked, they answered, and then they, too, saw the notice. They explained that they needed the extension because they were behind on rent, but the eviction was unexpected because they were only two days late. The notice gave them one week to move out. They signed the extension and I left, a little susp

4.

Text - A few days later, I got a call from the couple saying they needed to return the stuff they'd rented because they were being evicted and had to move to a motel. I told them to wait there, l'd be over in an hour. My wife had worked in the rental office of our previous apartment complex, so I knew some tenant laws. When l'd checked after getting the extension signed, I found that evictions couldn't be served with only a week notice, they had to give 30 days for the tenants to pay or move out

5.

Text - Normally, l'd have considered this none of my business, but everyone in our store hated that landlord and wanted to get back at him, so I printed out the applicable rental law pages from the town's website and drove over to the apartment complex. There, I knocked on the door of every one of our customers living there, which was about half of the 20 or so apartments, and gave them a copy of the law. While doing this, I learned that the landlord had been evicting people like that for being

Text - I told the couple that had started all this that if I were them, I wouldn't move out, and l'd contact a lawyer or at least the city housing department and file a complaint. They were worried because the landlord had said he'd have the sheriff's department evict them if they didn't move out in time (there were no local police--small town), but I said that even if the landlord called them, I doubted they'd actually evict them if they cited the law. That was about allI could do, and I hoped

7.

Text - It was. The couple came in a few weeks later to pay for their rental furniture and to thank me for all my help, telling me the landlord had just been arrested. They'd filed a complaint, and when the landlord called the sheriff to evict them, it had kicked off an investigation. I never learned what exactly the charges were, or what happened to the landlord, but the complex ended up under new ownership, and the new manager had no problem with us parking on their property for deliveries.

Text - My first manager was great and would regularly boost confidence of all the staff. Help bring in customers and new members with great advertising and relationships with other corporations so we could have corporate memberships. They then moved to another bigger site, totally understandable. The new manager was an absolute tool. I went on a course to gain a new qualification and for such I took holiday. Whilst on the course (that I took holiday for) he called me up at 7pm informing me that

Text - A few weeks later I was in a car accident that wasn't my fault and was off work for a week recovering as I had injuries from it and also no courtesy car so I couldn't drive the hour to work. He rang me up threatening to fire me as I wasn't going to hit targets even though i couldn't physically get to work. He demanded me best friend bring me to work immediately. I declined. He put me on a warning for not hitting that months target which he can 'technically' do.

Text - Our corporate memberships were low and he was complaining that I was making him look bad. He had offered corporate memberships to this new business for free behind my back. Knowing we couldn't do this, when they came in to sign up I did it the correct way and set up a direct debit and made them pay which they seemed to have no problem with. My manager caught wind of this and then changed all of the bank details on each of the corporate members account to my bank account. He told me after

Text - Low and behold he conveniently forgot. (I suspected that this was to keep monthly revenue up as since he'd came it had severely dropped in all areas) £500 came out of my account and I got charged overdraft too. He said he'd refund it when it came to the end of the month for revenue figures (not too sure) I gave him 1 more chance. Another £500 went out of my account. With more overdraft charges.I proceeded to hand my notice in.

I marched into the office and presented all my evidence. Fortunately his boss was in the office that day.

Alongside the lost revenue that was the new managers fault and the now £1500 the c

Plumber’s Customer Won’t Pay In Full, Sweet Grout Revenge Ensues

Man, this is a fine example of why it pays to be a reasonable, good human being, and not mess with your servicemen. This plumber was just doing his job, to the requirements asked of him, and the clients decided to make a mess of the whole peaceful operation. Clearly, they were trying to skip out on paying the whole bill. So, the plumber was extra sweet with finishing up the job. What might seem like a petty revenge on the surface, really evolves to be more of a cold and calculated pro revenge that likely haunted the folks for a long while after the job was “done.”

Text - 1 3 2 Sweet revenge I was told y'all would appreciate this. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did :) My father is a plumber. Great guy, does the work you want and does his best on every job, acting like it's his own home, to try to make sure the customer is satisfied. He was doing a job at a home where they wanted a complete bathroom remodel. Asking the owners of the home the whole way through specific things

He did everything to their specifications, and on one of the last days of work (the day he was grouting everything) they decided to say it wasn't the correct tiles, they didn't like it, and were going to pay him HALF of what he quoted them. Half of what he was owed for this two week long job (two weeks being a decently short amount of time t

Text - He only got paid half, but much more than that they had to spend on bug sprays, for years. Years. Nothing could keep the bugs away from that sweet, sweet bathroom. (According to a neighbor of theirs, who was a friend of my fathers) Don't fuck with your serviceman. Pay them. Don't be a prick or they may just be extra sweet.

Text - -My father has started this business on his own from the ground up, and does most things on a handshake and good faith basis, which has (obviously) screwed him over a time or two but thankfully few and far between. He is NOT a 'take this person to court' person. Never has been. Eats the loss and moves on, sometimes a gold story like this comes out of it, sometimes we just lose money.

Text - -Yes, it's real, but thanks for your useless negativity. -Yes, obviously it screws with the stability of the grout, which is why they had to have it redone about a year later (they were not bright people and blamed the degrading grout on the sprays/bombs they used) -yes, even though it was redone, they still had issues with ants/bugs for years. They regrouted but the sugary grout residue is still there, nicely screwing with them :) (according to the neighbor who has recently updated my fa

Freeloading Housemates Get Introduced To Court System

Man, these people sound like a ball of toxic energy. You have the one dude offering nothing but generosity and understanding to the rest of the roommates, who are basically going around, freeloading, and taking advantage of one’s good nature. A kind of icky feeling can arise just thinking about it. Well, the freeloading roommates ultimately learned their lesson, and were introduced to the court system. Maybe that will set them on a different path in the future. Who knows?

Text - r/ProRevenge + JOIN u/falloutfan1987 • 7h Take the money I give for bills and squander it? Hope you like the court system! The Background: I lived with a group of people who I thought were my friends. They were 2 couples, and we all lived in the same house for almost 2 years until I recently moved out. There was David and Tina and Brittnay and AJ. I was the only single person there.

2.

Text - There was debate on how we should pay the bills, but we all decided to give the money to the person whose name was on the bill. David paid the mortgage, Tina paid the water and electric/gas, and I paid the internet. It came to the point to where I was paying close to 80 percent of the mortgage by myself, the entire water bill, about 75 percent of the gas and electric, and I was paying the internet bill by myself. I was giving the money still to the person in charge of the bill, but came t

3.

Text - While they all saw me struggle to pay these off, they were mindlessly spending money during the day, which is when I sleep due to working 3rd shift, so I never saw the mindless things they spent money on, nor did I ever see the mail since they grabbed it before I woke up. Brittnay never paid anything as she was having her check garnished due to unpaid student loans, but she always had expensive make up, AJ never held a job for more than 2 weeks, David and Tina were always calling into wor

4.

Text - One day, I woke up while they were all out and about doing something or other, so I went to go check the mail as I was expecting a package, when I saw the bills in the mail, so I decided to investigate. I opened up the gas and electric bill (as they are by the same company) to see a total amount of almost 400 dollars and in risk of being shut off. I was shocked and pissed. I knew right then and there what was going on. And I vowed to screw them over as hard as I could. The Revenge:

5.

Text - I had just interviewed for a new job that paid almost double what I was making, and I knew that I interviewed well with them, so I told myself that if I got the job, I would give them a 30 day notice and move out, and as it was close to the end of the month and I had already paid them, I would be moving out before the 1st of February I got the call with the job offer the next day, which I happily accepted. I did the paperwork for the back ground check, and it all came back clean. The same

I was asked several times to help with the next month's bills, to which I said no, as I was saving for my own place and that they had plenty of time to come up with the money between the 4 of them, because I was doing it all by myself pretty much on a meager pay rate of 11 dollars an hour before my new job. There were a lot of scowls, passive aggressive behavior, and flat out attempts to take or use my things or foods witho

7.

Text - The day came when I finally went and got my U-Haul and had a few friends help me move (free beer and free lunch are the best payment ever, as they shared it all with me). I was determined to get it all in one go, so I got the biggest one they had, and we got everything packed up. I took everything that was mine down to my pizza stone (which they loved), my expensive kitchen knives which they would use and never clean, even my toilet paper that I had bought 3 days prior because I needed it

8.

Text - I happened to be good friends with my previous neighbors (we smoked each other out frequently), and asked them to keep an eye out for anything out of the ordinary. 4 days go by and I come to find out that the gas, electric, and water have all been turned off and they were asking to fill up some buckets to manually flush the toilets, bathe in, etc. etc. Now, both couples have dogs (which my cat hated as they were both hyperactive as hell, but I loved them), so I decided that those dogs wer

Text - The NEXT day, my neighbor, Todd, texted me telling me that the dogs were removed from the home, that my previous housemates were being charged with neglect, and because of the lack of utilities, that these were not civil, but criminal charges. This was enough for me to smile, but I wanted more. I knew that David was divorced and had a child. I also knew that he wasn't paying child support. I then contacted the local courts and made them aware of the flagrant non-support, and that maybe th

Neighbors Go Full Petty, Guy Tows In Pro Revenge

We love a good neighbor revenge story. People can turn real petty on their neighbors, and sometimes that pettiness is addressed with a calculated, borderline genius, pro revenge. In this case, the dude had had enough of his neighbors’ rampant pettiness, and how they’d park in his spots. So, he towed in a whole lot of “redneck hardware” and parked it out front of their place, when the moment presented itself. Just imagining what those two weeks must’ve been like for those neighbors; oh boy. 

Get some more neighbor revenge goodness over here with this entitled neighbor who tasted his own medicine.

Text - We met the neighbors, my wife made cookies and they invited us to their pool parties, we swapped foodstuffs and recipes ... It was all Ozzie and Harriet - until put a fence up around our back yard for security firstly as anyone could come off the back alley and right up onto our porch and back door. Plus, I wanted to be able to let our two shorthair pointers out to play without having to tie them up or supervise them. Well, our neighbors didn't like that, and who can say why? It disturbed

Text - Three things changed: One, they no longer invited us to their pool parties, two, we no longer traded cookies and pies, and lastly...they began parking in front of our house. It's a public street and you can do as you will but my two spaces were constricted by a telephone pole that had guy wires coming down from it meaning you'd have to be careful getting into and out of your car lest you scratch the paint, or worse, clothesline yourself with metal cables.

Their 3-5 cars (the live-at- home, unemployed daughter maintained a rotating cast of paramours) were gone, and nobody was giving piano lessons! I struck! I raced to my dad's and hitched his houseboat to his beater farm truck and towed the combo back home, parking 80'+ of gloriously tacky red-neck hardw

6.

Text - And I left the combo there for almost two weeks, unmoving, and rusting loudly right in front of their front porch swing that they liked to perch on in the evenings. Pressure from my wife and the impending monthly street sweeping finally led to my removing the blockade and they've not parked in font of our place since, nor have we spoken more than 5 words in 2 years ... and that's fine by us.

Dude Falls For ‘FWB’ In Quarantine & Wholesomely Asks The Internet For Advice

While we’re happy for all anyone who has had a “successful” friends with benefits situation, but in our experience someone almost always gets hurt. The current climate is an especially weird time for “no-strings attached” lovers. While some people are going months without seeing their sexual partners, others have instead decided to shack up for quarantine.This r/relationships post deals with the latter. After a couple years  of being sexually involved, and finally after quarantining with her, this guy has started to catch feelings. The confused dude took to Reddit to express his conflicted feelings, and after the post was shared on Twitter, many users decided to share their two cents. While we think it is rotten to string someone along, it’s important to remember these people are in their early twenties. It’s normal for a 21 year old to be somewhat immature in love. We’re just glad he seems to be wising up emotionally.

AskReddit Thread: Red Flags When Looking For Jobs

Someone got an AskReddit thread going about the red flags to keep a watchful eye out for while job hunting. Taking note of these might come in handy next time you find yourself looking for a new job, and don’t want to end up in a difficult situation that could’ve been avoidable from the get go, if you but knew what to steer clear of from the start.

Business Refuses To Refund $40, Court Orders Them To Pay $230

What a fine example of a cheap business, making their lives more complicated by not just doing the right thing up front. After refusing to refund a buyer $40, they ended up being told by the court that they’d have to pay $230. In all fairness, that dog tag is kind of horrifying too.

Pettiest Revenges The World’s Seen

Petty revenges are something else. We get to see just how far people’s resistance toward letting something go, can take them in the way of enacting a devastating petty revenge. Sometimes, people just obsess, and through that obsession a desire to hatch the perfect petty revenge is born. You might say that these folks are masters of the petty revenge. They certainly weren’t playing games. Maybe revenge is best enjoyed through pure pettiness. Who knows?

I flip on my air compressor and begin filling my tire, her cries drowned out by the sound of 250psi of justice. She comes and stands in front of me, face beet red and little flecks of spittle popping out from between her cigarette teeth as she calls me all sorts of names. I calmly say "Ma'am, I only have one tire to fill

I started working in a corporate office in a secretarial position for my first job after college. There were two older ladies who were also secretaries working in the office.

It's actually quite an interesting place. You come in through a nondescript entrance and the place has a really nice vibe going on once you get inside. Note: this is one of those bars where the server comes to your table and serves the drinks rather than one where you order at the bar and take

Text - Then, when it came time for the bill, I went up again so he would come to our table. He came and thought we were going to order again despite me clearly asking for the bill when I went up. So, he went back to get the card machine and it was another ten minutes before he was back. At this point, I was quite ticked off at the not- so-great service and was debating whether or not I should tip him. The screen had an option for 10%, 15%, 20% or "other." | decided to just leave 10% as I wanted

Text - Now, he prints out the receipt and takes a look at it and sees I left 10%. He then asks if we had a nice evening, to which my boyfriend responded that we did; we both thought it was just a standard question servers ask so we didn't bother telling him about the poor service received-especially because it wouldn't really make a difference at this point. The guy then says, "oh, well if you had such a nice time, than you should've left at least a 15% tip. Because, in Canada, it's customary to

Chef Reuses Customers’ Unfinished Soups, Loses Restaurant

Seriously, this son sounds like he was a real piece of work. Dude takes over his family’s restaurant, has the opportunity to carry on an honored legacy, and proceeds to spit right in its face. Reusing people’s unfinished soups and serving them back to other folks because he “believed” that the heat in the soup burned the germs off, is next level delusional. Sounds like the guy getting reported and shut down was for the best. All in all, a delicious pro revenge, and even with the original recipe thrown in at the end. Love it.

Text - This revenge story happened in the 90s when I was working after school as a line cook / chef's assistant at a Chinese restaurant. The place specialized in noodle soups, with the main attraction being our soup stock. The owner used a much revered passed down family recipe. It consisted of freshly cracked pork bones, fresh spices and fresh vegetables all kept at a rolling boil for over 12 hours. It had to be started the night before and the owner was very particular about the soup stock. If

Text - The owner himself was this really awesome, old Chinese gentleman. He had some incredible stories. For example, he enlisted into the Kuo Ming Tang (Chinese republic) Army in the 40s and worked as a chef for KMT officers during WWII. He told us about how one time his Division's HQ was over run, and he had to escape on a push bike ahead of the advancing Japanese Army. Eventually, when the Chinese Communist Party took over in the 50s, he was assigned to a steel factory to work for the rest of

He eventually started working at the restaurant, nominally as the front of house manager but in reality, did nothing but watch TV and take naps.

Sadly, the old man died after my 5th year working there. That's when the son took over (the mother had passed years ago). The son had zero cooking experience but decided to take over as the chef. He didn't like the idea of putting the soup on overnight (waste of gas) and instead got me to do the prep the night before and th
