'I cut off the boot in front of the HOA member': Boss and employee rally entire neighborhood against overzealous HOA

'Stop laughing at me': Man mistaken for employee by furious customer tries to satisfy her demands he be ‘fired’ by calling his manager

Cranky neighbor crashes kid's birthday party to complain about parking, they get her back by blocking her driveway: 'Ok, I'll block parking in front of your house'

This cranky neighbor suffers from such a serious case of main character syndrome that she has the audacity to crash and ruin a kid's birthday party. There are many layers to her uncalled-for behavior, starting with the fact that she refuses to engage with these residents because they are renters and now owners. Next, there's the fact that she refuses to let folks park in front of her house despite the fact that it's free street parking that she has absolutely no jurisdiction over. Still, people…

Top confessions and secrets overheard by ride app drivers: 'A couple [...] broke up in the backseat'

These taxi, Uber, and Lyft drivers have seen it all, from breakups happening right there in the backseat to major life confessions to full-on cheating. In theory, you would think that these guys are getting the full range of th…

‘Enjoy your long walk home’: Resident blocks man's car after he parks it in their private spot, forcing man to abandon his car and find another way home

When one looks for a place to live, they have to consider all kinds of different elements that would allow them to have the best experience living there.

'[She] gives me the most infuriating little wave': Guy waits in line to refill his tires, entitled Karen cuts him off, cue payback

Cutting in line is always a dangerous game. Not only are you showing that you lack any sort of moral code, but also you are likely making enemies out of the other people in line, and their retaliation may be far more intense than just an eye roll. This thread was posted to Reddit's r/pettyrevenge subreddit by u/turtlesh0es , who was waiting to refill his tires at his local Wawa when an entitled Karen asked if she could go before him. The Redditor had already been waiting for some time and polit…

Much like the used car sales industry, the rental car biz can be a little shady. Like so many industries that take advantage of their customers being stranded, rental car companies are known to try and rip off their customers for every cent–however, one diligently vengeful traveling employee saw to it that his continued business was far more valuable than a tack-on fee.

'We didn't see Zen Dude back at the park again': Entitled yogi makes enemies at local dog park, other dog owners deflate his tires

For better or for worse, parks attract a wide range of outsized personalities. There are the folks who want to keep to themselves, the ones who are actively trying to draw attention, and the ones who whether they know it or not are making everyone else's experience at the park miserable. Most of the time, we do not have the courage to confront these individuals, but every so often, the opportunity for some much-needed petty revenge arises. With this particular scenario, which was shared by u/No…

‘Nice try’: Resident claims public neighborhood area as her personal parking space, leading neighbor to a clever payback

This might sound completely ridiculous, but before anyone thinks of buying a car, they should really consider whether or not they have a space to park it where they live. If they don't, then they simply should not buy a car. Another thing they should absolutely not do is assign a random public area in their neighborhood to be their own personal parking space because A. It's illegal, and B. It is just going to create an uncomfortable situation with the neighbors. But still, some people buy cars…
