'She... ran straight through the building': 90-year-old drives car into hair salon while fleeing a hit and run

'She... ran straight through the building': 90-year-old drives car into hair salon while fleeing a hit and run

No one is going to have a better “bad haircut story” than this dude. Imagine: you go to get a haircut, and as you're sitting in the chair, a car races into the establishment, crashing just feet away from you! The dude in the video doesn't have to wonder, because it happened to him while this hairdresser was giving him a trim. As you can check out in this wild video below, a 90-year-old woman the driver behind the chaos. She reportedly hit a different car while leaving a fast food restaurant. Th…

'[They] asked about who her shoe cobbler was': 20+ Subtle signs that you're talking to someone wealthy

Money isn't everything… no, I take that back, it is everything. Money is perhaps 80% of life. People who already have money absolutely love to tell you that “Money isn't everything.” If you're a lonesome lawyer working 90 hours per week who never sees their family, like in a Hallmark movie, than I guess that makes sense. But for most of us, who do have loving family and friends and a moral compass, having an injection of cash would make life a whole lot easier! When you have money, you can get…

'My dash cam was running the entire time': Family tries to pull scam after car accident they caused but guy has a dash cam

There is no shortage of dishonest people in this world, a fact that becomes readily apparent as soon as you get in even the most minimal of traffic collisions. There are honest people, too, but you're hardly going to remember the time you got into a traffic collision with the nicest guy on earth, are you? At that point, you're exchanging information and going your separate ways, and while inconvenient, it becomes kind of a non-issue. People don't like owning up to accountability, and to be fair…

'Do whatever you need to do': Car dealership maliciously complies with maintenance order, inflates prices, then learns they have to foot the bill

It's refreshing to read that for once, the folks at a car dealership were those ones who had to pay up. We come across too many stories on the Internet of folks getting cheated and tricked and having to pay the price, but this Redditor cleverly circumnavigated the system in order to get what they deserved. This thread was posted to Reddit's r/MaliciousCompliance subreddit by u/Ko-Riel , who explained that they purchased a car with three years of maintenance included. When it came time for the c…

‘I won't pay for this': Choosing beggar demands seller pay for item delivery because ‘they live too far away’

‘I won't pay for this': Choosing beggar demands seller pay for item delivery because ‘they live too far away’

When selling items online, you are bound to encounter some choosing beggars. To be a little more concise, a choosing beggar is when one person has unreasonable expectations while attempting to haggle a price. I've sold a couple of items in my lifetime and am almost always met with some kind of resilience from the other side. Usually, when I am introduced to such a haggler, I make an effort to say as little as possible and just make it clear that the sale is not gonna work out. Because when thes…

'My husband is a lawyer': Karen tries to hit-and-run by using husband's job as an excuse despite evidence of collision

If this Karen's husband is, in fact, a lawyer, she should know that refusing to exchange your information after a collision means it's a hit-and-run. The original video was shared by @edward3jr , who unfortunately had to deal with this Karen after she bumped into their parked car. Like any Karen would, she claimed that their cars never touched despite clear evidence that says otherwise. That evidence includes dashcam footage depicting the impact and photo evidence of the aftermath. At first, th…

'The very best thing he stopped was clearing away snow': Company director lays off workers, truck driver employee creates massive delays in return

This company laid off a bunch of people , and the remaining employees are not thrilled about the downsizing decision. No employee wants to be part of a company that's a sinking ship. If the business you're in starts downsizing and letting people go, it can create a ripple effect. The remaining employees will be walking on eggshells around their bosses, not knowing if they'll be the next to go. And with their coworkers leaving a gap in production, some people are sure to be burdened with additio…

'I pulled a Karen': Guy gets cuts off by bad driver, cops almost let him off until guy pulls out the dashcam footage

Every so often, there comes a time when you find yourself pulling a Karen for necessary reasons. This is not to condone Karen behavior, but rather to say that justified rage can sometimes be misinterpreted as Karen behavior, which is by definition unjustified. When you find yourself “pulling a Karen,” you often have the inclination to stop yourself from getting upset even though you have objectively been wronged in this situation. Sometimes, getting upset is not being a Karen. Sometimes, it's s…

'Landlord tries to keep [my] security deposit... um, no': Landlord tells tenants to 'park anywhere you want,' then fines them $1500

At one cheap apartment , this couple found themselves faced with massive fines. When you're young, sometimes the only housing you can afford is a cheap and tiny little room. Lots of landlords charge outrageous amounts of money for these little tiny shoeboxes of apartments. They seem to know that if you don't have a lot of money, you may also be low on housing options. Then, you end up signing paperwork that gives the landlord an advantage over you. This person, u/Clintosaurus_Rex, and their gir…

'[I] did more loops than I could count': Masked roommate racks up hundreds of dollars in red light camera fines

This is genius. One guy shared the way they got back at a thieving roommate — and their methods are certainly food for thought. Roommate relationships can make or break your living situation. If you decide to live with someone responsible and clean, you'll probably get along just fine. But of course, you don't really know what it's like to live with someone until the moving vans are pulling away from your house, and your roommate is setting the stove on fire with their dinner. You just have to…

‘She looked absolutely apoplectic’: Karen driver receives fines amounting to $1,000 for taking up two disabled parking spaces with her car

Karens have a knack for knowing just when to use their magical powers to irritate other people, but sometimes, this leads to their demise. One Karen was ladidadia-ing about her day, when she arrived at the parking lot of a store she needed to go to. She looked around the entire lot, and thought to herself, ‘Where could I take up the most room, whilst being the most inconsiderate at the same time?’. Luckily for this Karen, she found the perfect spot… or rather, two spots. Yeah, you guessed it… t…

'Is it ok if I fire you?': Boss fires employee for being late, then surprises them with offer

If you're late, you're late — and your boss might not care about your excuses. A baffling thing that some people do is tell you that there are no excuses for your actions. Then, they still want you to explain yourself. So the conversation will start by your boss demanding to know why you're late. You then say that you were late because you had car trouble , or perhaps your nanny cancelled last minute, or any other good reason for not being on time. Even the best employees in the world won't mak…

'You started this': Guy spreads seafood all over his Dad's girlfriend's car after she dumps seafood in his house

Some forms of petty revenge are subtle, some are overt, and others are fishy. This story very much falls in the lattermost category… First of all, we all know what happens when you cook seafood. Unless you clean your kitchen and throw out your trash pretty much as soon as you're done eating, your place is going to stink . Well, this Redditor had to experience this awful stench not because he messed up but because his Dad's girlfriend was being petty. While OP was out of town over a three-day we…

‘This is your job now': Car dealership manager sends worker to deliver paperwork, despite lack of approval by higher-ups; customer CCs whole department on matter

Customers rarely have our backs, but when you find a way to get them to complain without exposing what is happening in the background work-wise, you have struck gold. Just because somebody is working, does not mean they want to work. Moreover, it would probably be best if they didn't work at all, seeing as they can't even do one simple job right. Who am I going on about? Well, let's call him Jim. Jim was the OP's coworker, who happened to be a manager at the car dealership OP worked at. Jim was…
