'Finally, justice getting served!': Homeowner spends hundreds of dollars to find source of banging noise, catches entitled neighbor kid kicking house and running away

As kids, many of us indulged in harmless pranks around the neighborhood—ding-dong-ditching, TP-ing, you name it. It was just part of growing up.

However, one recent incident takes the cake in terms of annoyance factor. A particularly entitled kid has been repeatedly kicking his neighbor's house. Yes, kicking it.

Chairman singles out only female board member, asking her to watch visiting politician's children: 'I do not have any children, but everyone else on the board [does]'

Volunteering your time to an organization remains exactly that: volunteer work. You're not being compensated for your time, so you'd hope that your contributions would at least be appreciated and that you'd be treated respectfully during your time there. Still, organizations that rely heavily on volunteer work can have the tendency to—well, forget this—and take the unpaid hours of their dedicated volunteers for granted, treating them as if they were subordinates instead. After all, where there…

Babysitter falls asleep on the job and fails to hear the baby crying, resulting in a dispute when the parents find out: ‘Hire a nanny next time’

Kids are something else. Imagine you're a parent (you probably are if you clicked on this post). It's 6:00 AM, and your kids are already battling each other outside their shared bathroom. They refuse to get ready together and lock one another out, causing chaos, as usual. You shuffle around, getting things ready, making breakfast, and occasionally pulling them apart. One kid hates their outfit, the other one hates you. It's just a typical morning. Their expressions are storm clouds of teenage r…

'Any discomfort is the result of their own choices': Traveller insists on reclining their airline seat to get back at poorly-behaved toddler

Parents who travel with young kids deserve a medal of some sort.

'I said no and ended the call': School principal demands mom work for free to help with school play, she refuses, principal blames her for production failure

It comes to no one's surprise that schools care much more about the sports programs than the arts. For some reason, it is assumed that the arts are not as important for kids' education as doing sports, and so the art programs get much less budget and attention in an unfortunate amount of schools. The situation is no different in the school from this Reddit story, and the main problem might be with the school's principal. OP (original poster) is a mom who got a call from a school principal askin…

‘No, it's mine': Teenager wins $1000 in town raffle, father and new wife demand she give it all to them

As a teenager, winning prizes in a raffle is super cool. You get to buy all those things your parents won't give you or the clothes and jewelry they can't afford. But what if your parents need the money more than you do? What then? Well, I guess it really depends on the situation. And this particular situation feels really unfair considering adults need to own up to their actions and face the consequences. One teenager won $1000 in a town raffle, which she was really excited about. Her biologic…

'So brave of you to feed your kids chicken fingers!': 25 Backhanded compliments that surprised parents

Parents can get oddly competitive about their kids, and they have some backhanded compliments to dole out to parents they're intimidated by. They say it's not productive to compare your kid to others, but it's hard not to. If all the other babies are walking but your kid is still crawling, you might worry that they're behind. Other babies start talking very early on, while others don't speak in full sentences until they're two or three years old. It's understandable why parents would be concern…
