'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. Going to the airport as an adult can be a stressful experience on its own, let alone bringing along your 15-month-old who loves screaming and throwing handfuls of Cheerios. Lots of people will see your kiddo and give you a smile, because kids are super cute. What's less cute is a toddler who is on your actual flight . The little ones just can't sit still! They want to run around and play. They can't understand why they're expected…

Another day, another family drama. One person, who we'll call OP, shared an entertaining story about their upstairs neighbors who got even with a family member of theirs who took it one step too far. OP lived in an apartment complex with two-story buildings and shared outdoor stairwells. Their upstairs neighbors were seemingly calm, chill people to whom they said hello once in a while. One day, OP's peaceful reading session was shattered by a commotion - shouts, running, pure family hysteria. E…

'I have the worst neighbors': Guy gets even with noisy kids next door by playing circus music incessantly until they stop

‘I told you so’: Kid unplugs computer during a thunderstorm to prevent it from frying, stepdad demands he plugs it back, then blames kid when the computer stops working

‘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…

'He's your son, not mine': Woman adds veggies to every meal to prevent roommate's kid from eating it, roommate responds ‘we need food’

Living with roommates is such a dice roll… are you gonna land on a good number or are you gonna lose the game? This woman was renting a house with a single mother and her son.

'A lady... brought in an entire rotisserie chicken to watch "Infinity War"': 30+ Unexpected movie theater snacks that viewers snuck past concession stand employees

If you've only ever snuck candy into a movie theater , you haven't lived. These people have snuck in full meals! For many of us, sneaking candy into the movie theater is a way of life. At least in my town, it almost seemed designed that way. The movie theater was in a strip mall, and just two stores down was a dollar store that had a massive candy section at the entrance. It was such a blatant candy display that I wondered if they'd partnered with the theater or something. In reality, they were…

'He agreed to buy me replacements... then backtracked': Brother refuses to cancel sibling's debt after his kids ruin expensive art supplies

These siblings were trying not to argue in front of the kids, but they just can't agree on who needs to repay who . Children will get into everything that they can. They don't always understand the concept of valuable items. They have no problem throwing food on the floor, breaking plates or vases, or keying your car, just to name a few examples. Their brains simply aren't developed enough to know why some things are more important to grown-ups than others. That's why it's usually the responsib…

'There is no way': Pokemon inspired baby-names start dispute between friend and expectant mother

A little bit of fandom-inspired baby naming has caused a rift in this friend group. In the past, some parents would test out potential baby names by yelling them out the front door a few times. (Parents used to call their kids home for dinner while the kids were out in the neighborhood playing with friends). If you felt weird shouting the name out the door, you'd know that wasn't the right moniker for your baby. The modern-day equivalent might include a few more stop-gaps. You should absolutely…

You know… kids are dumb; it's really an undeniable and certifiable fact. In fact, it's not even a programming error rather it's actually one of the features of being a kid; you don't have to know everything or be responsible and can romp around; it's up to your parents, other guardians, or mining foreman to manage that for you and teach it to you in constructive ways. “You can't always get what you want” is one of those first lessons that you're taught in life, and has been an essential part of…

College graduate informs father she won't take care of him in old age, prompting him to move her monthly allowance of $1000 into a retirement plan instead: ‘You’ll be on your own'

People in their twenties who are receiving buckets of money from their parents should learn a thing or two about respect. For some reason, spoiled kids treat their parents worse than kids who actually have to work for what they earn. Call it entitlement, call it privilege, call it whatever you want… I think it's absurd. This college graduate was receiving a monthly allowance of $1000 from her father, who was remarried to a woman she hated. The graduate, who we'll call Karen, was always being me…
