Update! 'There was broken glass everywhere': Can-stealing delinquent nephew gets arrested after trashing uncle's home

What do you do when you've been caught and punished for your delinquent actions? Apologize and learn from the experience, improving your life and outlook? No! Double down on your mistakes — of course! That was the illogical reasoning that led us to this update in a post that was shared on Reddit's r/EntitledPeople subreddit. This one escalates and gets pretty wild. I was kind of on the fence about sharing this one because it takes a sharp left turn out of the “fun zone.” after the nephew is arr…

AITA for 'selling out' on my Grandma's secret recipe? Update!

Update: 'I refused': Cousin demands Grandma's secret cake recipe after woman's success selling it, gets denied, ends wholesomely

All's well that ends well — right? This internet user returned over a year later to provide an update on the family conflict that they had asked for the internet for advice on. The user is a baker who inherited her grandmother's secret spice cake recipe. The grandmother had left an open invitation to any member of the family who wanted to learn the recipe; all they had to do was join grandma for a baking session.

There will always be people who consider themselves to be the exception — to rules, laws, or just plain old common etiquette. These entitled individuals think they're the main character but don't even stop to consider the fact that they're really just making themselves into one of many faceless, disposable goons in everyone else's day — like those hordes of aliens in the first Avengers who just mercilessly eradicated in the final act having received literally zero screen time. Anyways, this bro…

Isn't family wonderful? While some of us are busy brawling at the family Thanksgiving dinner, other families have resorted to stealing collections of cans valued at around $200.

AITA for "overruling" my sister by approving my nephew's outfit for my wedding?

Aunt okays nephew's outrageous wedding outfit and overrules his mother's wishes

Can we still be an a-hole if our intent was well-meaning? Well, probably . That's the answer that Reddit gave this aunt after she approved her nephew's super-extra outfit for her wedding, which — it turns out, was a really bad idea. The big short of the situation is this: The super cool aunt and her fiancé are pretty artsy people; they wanted people to dress in whatever colors and manner they preferred, just as long as it was nice and a little bit “fancy." Her nephew really took to this idea an…
