Funniest Cases Lawyers Have Ever Ended Up Doing

Lawyers spent a whole lot of time burying their brains in impossibly dense books while navigating tumultuous seas of awful stress to get themselves to a place where they occasionally end up having to work cases involving people that have lost their ways in the most absurd of ways. Maybe these ridiculous cases that lawyers ended up fielding will manage to (further) convince you that the living life of a lawyer is not the one that you want to lead. For some more absurdity from the courtroom check out this Tumblr thread about ridiculous overheards during court proceedings.

So, the labor board made the very necessary intervention. For another pro revenge tale check out the time that a client tried to screw an employee over by locking out of the system, and then it totally backfired

Food Shop Ghosts Employee, Employee Steals Food Shop's Workforce

Companies that underestimate the lengths to which their employees will go to if they've been the victims of wrongdoing, really bring all the blowback on themselves. It sounds like it was only a matter of time before this food shop got their rightful comeuppance. Good on the employee for sticking it to them like they did.

Neighbor Keeps Wasting Cops' Time Over Petty Matters, Loses Half Of Garden

Unfortunately, there are far too many of us that have ended up living next to a neighbor who has seemingly completely lost their grasp on how to act like a reasonable, vaguely sane and bearable human being. Some people end up drifting quite far out there, and the last thing you want to find yourself reckoning with, is having to live next to them. Fortunately, this tale of pro revenge has a happy ending for some folks involved, and it sounds like Steve got the wakeup call he so sorely needed.

Talk about the work of a criminally dumb criminal. This fool attempted to steal someone's package (package thieves suck), and then proceeded to get his car stuck in the snow. Kind of comical on the one hand, but also still infuriating because porch pirates are the absolute worst.
