'City folk come at the farmer': Tractor-driving farmer quits plowing snow from neighbors' yard after neighbor tells him 'do it later, or not at all'

'City folk come at the farmer': Tractor-driving farmer quits plowing snow from neighbors' yard after neighbor tells him 'do it later, or not at all'

A new guy in town learned to be careful what he asks for from his neighbors . As u/Doriantalus shared, they grew up on a dariy farm, where they have a typical farm lifestyle . That means waking up at the crack of dawn to start farm chores — cows need to be fed and milked at specific times of day, so it's important that the farmers are consistent. The OP's dad sounds like a really nice guy. OP writes that each winter, he would wake up before chore time — around 3 AM — in order to plow every neig…

'You can't park here': Woman refuses to move her car from neighbor's driveway, neighbor blocks her in

'You can't park here': Woman refuses to move her car from neighbor's driveway, neighbor blocks her in

Parking spots aren't always assigned, which can be particularly annoying if people begin parking right in front of your house, blocking your path, due to the fact that it's technically legal. Still, it certainly isn't proper etiquette, and it is usually frowned upon. In this case, OP lived on a street where some houses had driveways, yet some didn't, meaning that the house owners had to park on the street. OP had just enough room to park both their cars in front of their house, but when a new n…

'Not an emergency situation, sorry': Local Karen throws tantrum after no one pulled over when she put on her hazard lights, gets dragged online

'Not an emergency situation, sorry': Local Karen throws tantrum after no one pulled over when she put on her hazard lights, gets dragged online

We love when local Karens make up rules for the whole community to follow that simply do not exist. It's as if they live in their own tiny little universe where every thought that comes into their brain is not only factual but law . We've seen this situation transpire before with Karens involved in HOAs or neighbors who have ridiculous standards and procedures for everyone else to follow. In this scenario, which was posted to Reddit's r/F***YouKaren subreddit, we have a Karen whose daughter was…

'I've decided to park it legally': Home owner singled out by HOA for their old car, parks car right at neighborhood entrance

'I've decided to park it legally': Home owner singled out by HOA for their old car, parks car right at neighborhood entrance

This neighborhood HOA must really regret picking a fight with this driver. As u/wra**ehole writes in this great malicious compliance story, their HOA was seemingly targeting their car. Why? Because it's a bit old, about 30 years old to be exact, though the OP claims it's not an eyesore. Clearly, their HOA thinks differently. HOAs are supposed to improve the communities they surveil, but they've garnered a reputation for being nit-picky about every little detail of a person's property. You might…

New car buyer won't pay for pinstriped vehicle, dealership repaints his car overnight

'I went full Karen mode': New car haggler refuses to pay for pinstriped vehicle, dealership repaints his car overnight

Looking back on their new purchase in the 1990s, this person realized the car dealership got away with something intriguing. This is a story of a person buying a car in the 1990s, and one of the first things they claim is that these days, the “era of haggling” is over. Though I've never bought a car, I find that hard to believe. When purchasing a car, it's well known that people like to haggle with the salespeople to try and get a great deal for themselves. Meanwhile, the salespeople often have…

'Fifty years of malicious compliance': Man blames wife for late dinner, she decides to never drive again

Behold: one of the greatest examples of malicious compliance ever told. This Grandma's commitment to stubbornness is truly unmatched. Back in the 1950s, things were much different than they are now in almost every way. Back then, stereotypical gender roles were in full force, with women getting married, having lots of children, and running a household while raising the kiddies. Meanwhile, the man of the house would work a job. That's it. But that was considered the men's responsibility. Back th…

‘You say the vehicle works, so take it back’: Customer attempts to return vehicle due to malfunction, car dealership refuses to buy it back

A car is the 2nd largest purchase you will make, aside from a house. Back in the 90s, car dealerships looked somewhat like a circus; all the balloons, streamers, inflatable wiggly men, the big price stickers on cars… but nowadays, car dealerships are supposedly more 'honest', more direct, and frankly, more concise in terms of financing. In this case, OP's car dealership was incompetent. OP's SUV was throwing error codes, so they took it to the dealership for them to take a look. After taking a…

‘I corrected his behavior; he never parked over the lines again’: Resident gets even with neighbor who dents his car in building parking spot and doesn't leave a note

‘I corrected his behavior; he never parked over the lines again’: Resident gets even with neighbor who dents his car in building parking spot and doesn't leave a note

Some buildings have assigned parking spaces for residents, which would solve a lot of issues, or so you'd think. In this case, one resident was unable to park correctly, as he constantly parked over the line, eventually denting OP's car. At first, before the denting occurred, OP was annoyed that his neighbor was constantly parking over the line, leaving OP little room to park. But after finding dents in his car, without a note, OP was livid. His neighbor was not only irresponsible, inconsiderat…

'She left with the most... smug grin on her face': Customer flips out on mechanic who warns that her steering wheel is about to break

This car had some major issues — for one, the steering wheel was about to break off. There's a stereotype about mechanics. Some people think mechanics are only interested in trying to get money out of them. They believe that instead of a quick fix that costs a few dollars, that their mechanic is actually trying to get them to spend thousands of dollars to perform unnecessary work . To be fair, some mechanics do operate this way, and it's hard to figure out who's right – you, the person who driv…

'Bad karma, buddy': Dude flips off neighbor after trying to park in someone else's assigned parking spot

Contentious doesn't even begin to describe how people act about parking lots and getting the perfect spot. For many drivers, it's imperative to get a good spot, even if it takes some time of circling the lot, searching for a spot where no one else is parked too close. This lucky person, u/bizzzfire, wrote to r/AmItheA**hole with a question about a parking dispute. The OP writes that they were pretty sure they were doing the right thing by protecting their assigned spot, but after their interact…
