‘Get your story straight’: Man backs into stranger's car while texting and driving, claims to the insurance company that he wasn't even in the car, leading to a pursuit of evidence

We might not like to acknowledge this, but as grownups, we sometimes have to own up to our own mistakes.

Most folks out there just don't know much about the law, and they rely heavily on their lawyers to sort it out for them. Not only are legal iss…

‘This is all your fault’: HOA fines residents $63,000 after fire sprinkler goes off, despite building staff's incompetence

Apartment residents don't always have complete control over what happens in their home, and sometimes nature does its duty, a contractor pulls the wrong wire, or your four year old nephew pulls the fire alarm. Whatever the case may be, sometimes our supervision and good intentions make no difference. Such was the case for one person whose fire sprinkler went off due to something their contractor did. Of course, OP was not at fault, but the HOA apparently disagreed. Let's start at the beginning.…

Anyone who's urgently ordered an Uber while they're going into anaphylactic shock can attest that it's not an ideal situation to have to call an ambulance.

'At this point I'm petty and angry': Rental company tries to charge guy for extra day, cue devastatingly dirty malicious compliance

Companies really hate when their consumers know their rights, which one customer used to their advantage when they needed a rental car .

But if you just follow that contract to the letter, following all the rules, there's nothing the company can do to stop you. One poster shared this experience to r/MaliciousCompliance, one car rental company tried to screw him over after renting a car for five weeks. They need…

‘The Greedy Pigs are Stealing, and the Worst Part Is It’s Legal’ : Former Employees Reveal Shady Company Fails and Secrets

It's surprising how colossal secrets are kept for so long within companies themselves, but more so when you think about how many employees have since left said company, and kept their mouths shut.
