'My mom paying $1,500 to have the house she was renting painted': Top 20 Irresponsible Financial Decisions

'My mom paying $1,500 to have the house she was renting painted': 20+ Irresponsible Financial Decisions

The Holiday season is an easy time to make bad choices with your money. This is especially true for those of you who have needy family members asking for expensive gifts or if you have a burning desire to treat yourself. Unfortunately, most of the time, the smartest thing to do is the least fun thing. As much as I wish we lived in a universe where we didn't have to budget months in advance for a “treat yourself” moment, sometimes it's necessary. Now, before we get to enjoy the horrible financia…

'We had free pizzas weekly for years': 20+ top clever loopholes people used to their advantage

Discovering a loophole is like unlocking one of life's top secrets. You have to be extra careful about who you share this secret with; otherwise, the fun will be ruined for all involved. In theory, adulting is about being so on top of things that you don't need to find loopholes to get free stuff. In practice, though, adulting is very much about being that savvy. As someone who hopes to remain a part of his family's Netflix household for as long as possible until I am discovered, I am always lo…

'[Cop] wrote all those drivers tickets': Top 10+ Tales of Instant Karma

'[Cop] wrote all those drivers tickets': Top 10+ Tales of Instant Karma

You can never exactly predict when and how karma is going to strike. Sometimes, the people who deserve it the most get off easy (for now). But when karma does come into play, the results can be glorious. I'll never forget the time I had a friend who was so insistent that their wedding would happen the way they wanted it to that despite the forecast of good weather, it started to downpour during their outdoor wedding ceremony. It was the kind of climactic situation no one could have predicted (a…

Reddit thread about a noisy neighbor.

'I decided to write her a note': Tenant takes matters into her own hands after neighbor won't stop drilling and stomping

Moving into a new building is rarely smooth sailing. We've all had noisy neighbors that make us question our entire lives, values, and morals; why did I move to this city in the first place? Why do people even decide to have children? How come I'm polite and other people aren't? Is being noisy something that runs in the family? One woman who recently moved into a brand new apartment with her friends went through this existential crisis after an upstairs neighbor won't stop drilling, stomping, a…

'The flower girl was the daughter of the bride and the best man': Top 20+ shocking weddings gone wrong

There is a lot at stake when you're planning a wedding, which naturally means so much can go terribly wrong. Not only is there the anxiety surrounding superficial things like the flowers and the music and the food, but then there's also the anxiety that comes with appeasing multiple personalities at once and having certain difficult family members participate in the event. The truth is you can plan every possible way to avoid drama, but there are some people who simply bring drama with them whe…

'Why does their key card work for our room?': Hotel guests confront front desk agent after he gave two strangers their room key, agent reveals he was bribed

You would think the hotel would have clearer policies. These guests were on a vacation down in Miami when two strangers came into their room after being granted room key access by the front desk agent. Luckily, the guests were alright, but they did call the police to file a formal complaint about what happened. The interaction between the officers and the front desk agent was captured via video by one of the guests. In the video, you can see that the front desk agent accidentally reveals that h…

'I had a dream I was a raw chicken cutlet': 15+ bizarre and cringe dreams stuck in people's memories

It's hard to find psychological meaning underneath some of these wildly bizarre dreams. For instance, how can one find meaning behind dreaming that you are a raw chicken cutlet climbing a cliff? Could it be that you feel like your life is uncooked and begging for adventure? Could it be that you don't quite feel like a human? That you're completely misunderstood? We're grasping at straws here because the dreams these folks shared via this r/AskReddit thread are so “out there” one has to wonder w…

'My cousin gave me a picture of herself for Christmas': 15 folks share the worst gifts they have ever received

'My cousin gave me a picture of herself for Christmas': 15 folks share the worst gifts they have ever received

Not everyone is good at giving gifts. Obviously, for some people out there, it's their bread and butter. Their love language, if you will. If that's you, congratulations. However, the rest of us (myself included) were not born with the “good gift-giver” gene. As someone who was once gifted a dictionary and a pencil case holder for my 15th birthday, not to mention a DVD of Inside Out for my 21st birthday, I was not raised to be good at this. That's why when this time of year rolls around, I get…

Imagine the kind of level of desperation one would have to exhibit to draft a Santa Wish List letter as a 12-year-old child in order to get expensive Christmas gifts. These are the kinds of letters to nonprofit organizations where billionaires purchase Holiday gifts for underprivileged kids. These are the kinds of organizations that are meant for children in need, not fully grown choosing beggars with a whole lot of audacity.

'My stepmother sabotaged my stepsister's cooking': 15 tales of Thanksgiving family drama

There is no such thing as Thanksgiving without a little family drama. It's part of what makes this Holiday so memorable. I'll always remember the year a family member wasn't allowed to leave the hotel room because they were under the weather. Then, there's that time someone spilled a side dish all over my hair. And who could forget the time no one wanted to ask the old lady in the room if she had changed out of her onesie at all the whole weekend? This kind of family tension is perhaps the most…

'I spent hundreds of unnecessary dollars in oil changes': Man finds out his car's odometer was set to kilometers instead of miles 7 years after he bought it

New fear unlocked. So, this man bought a used car about seven years ago. Everything checked out, the car ran great, and all of the paperwork was in order. The only peculiar thing he noticed was that he was putting "miles" on the car pretty fast, but he didn't think much of it because he drove a lot and took a lot of weekend trips. Fast forward SEVEN years when he took the car into the shop. After arguing with the technician about how many miles were on the car, the OP uncovered the truth.

'He begged me to settle out of court': Tenant gets even with shady landlord after he went against city laws with outsized rent increase

Getting even with a landlord is the kind of rare occurrence one can only dream of in this life. If I had the opportunity to get back at some of my landlords knowing with certainty that the odds were in my favor and that I wouldn't be negatively affected in any way, you bet I would enact my own form of petty revenge. For me, the most egregious case of prior shady landlords would be the manager of my first New York apartment. This dude refused to acknowledge our leaking problem and insisted the r…

'When you rather be in bed than be at a party': 20+ signs that you're becoming old

There is a definitive moment in everyone's adult lives when all of a sudden, you don't have the bandwidth to do what you used to do. This could be something as literal and physical as needing to hire movers the next time you're changing apartment because you just don't have the strength and energy to carry everything yourself and potentially create even worse back problems than you already have. This could also be something as seemingly minor as putting a hard stop to your “going out” plans so…

There are many ways to get even with your boss after you were unjustly fired, but revealing company secrets has got to be the most high-stakes option. Now, as someone who does not have the guts to pull this kind of petty revenge off, I have to step back and marvel at some of these folks for speaking their truth. That being said, they did do it behind the anonymous safety net of this r/AskReddit thread, but still, I guess we should give credit where credit is due. As for my company secrets, that…
