Dumbest Things People Spent Money On

Whether it broke immediately, was completely useless to begin with, cost too much or was literally stupid, most people have spent too much money on a dumb thing. It just seems like its in our nature to get tricked or trick ourselves into buying useless junk. It's probably better to give it some extra thought when pulling out the credit card to buy a collector's edition set of Robocop themed silverware or a do-it-yourself liposuction kit, but what's the fun in that?

Scammer Gets Trolled and Taken on Wild Ride

We can't believe this scamming tactic ever works. How many people believe that a complete stranger claiming to be a CEO or government official or whatever would need you to pay them with gift cards? Either way, when it happens to savvy people, they try to have fun with a text message scammer. The person on the other end is apparently so desperate for those gift cards that scammers can get trolled for a ridiculously long time.

Entitled People and Their Unrealistic Demands

Whether it's because they think haggling is just an excuse to abuse people, or have irrational expectations about the world around them, entitled people will continue to fill the world with their unreasonable demands. Sometimes it's a boss who expects you to work on the weekends for free, other times it could be a total stranger who thinks that it's a reasonable request for you to ship your dog to them so they can pet it. Entitled people just keep making laughable demands. Sometimes entitled people even go full Karen.

Karen Racks Up $16K In Roaming Data, Refuses Steep Discount

One one hand, that's an insane rate for data, and it shouldn't cost that much. On the other hand, when you get 50 warning messages and your data turned off, but still push through and turn it back on so you can scroll through Facebook, you've made a mistake. Many people have experienced a frustrating time someone went full Karen, like this Karen who tailgated a driver right into a speed trap.

Guy Keeps Parking on Property, So Owner Starts Charging Him

This dude wouldn't stop parking on their property and making things a problem, so they turned it into an expensive place to park. This sounds like the kind of thing you can only do if you have a lot of patience and an extremely bored sheriff. When neighbors get into disputes, things can get ugly, like this neighbor who hammered nails into a fence and got their yard redecorated, or this guy who towed in pro revenge on his petty neighbor.
