'You are not gonna scam me!': Male Karen accuses fast food worker of stealing $0.05, throws change at her

There are many instances in which it's worth confronting someone if you have been wronged. This story is not one of them. Here , we have a fast food worker who was nearing the end of a night shift and didn't have many bills left in her register.

Similarly, if there is a baby on a plane, the baby is bound to get upset and cry. That's what babies do and it's not necessarily the parents' fault. You would be just like them in their situation, so keep that in mind before you start…

It doesn't matter how old and grumpy your entitled male Karen neighbor may be. Make no mistake: he does not write the rules. As someone who cannot afford to live in a residential neighborhood, I can merely compare this incident to one that happened to me in a communal laundry room in my apartment building.

'He didn't touch my seat for the remainder of the flight': Kevin keeps grabbing passenger's seat, passenger gets petty by grabbing his hand with wet fingers

It takes a special kind of person to disturb others on a flight. If it happens just once, of course, we let it slide. If it happens twice, we exchange glares to let that person know they need to get their act together. If it happens thrice or even more times, it's time to confront them or, at the very least, give them a taste of their own medicine. This thread was posted to Reddit's r/pettyrevenge subreddit by u/IndependentClub1117 , who was unfortunately seated directly in front of a Kevin. Th…
