People That Couldn't Believe They Got Paid For Their "Work"

Someone on AskReddit asked people about the times they caught themselves in the middle of a day's work, and genuinely couldn't believe that they got paid to do what they did, for "work." Some jobs are more surreal and enjoyable than others. Some jobs literally make you forget that you're working. These examples might make you all kinds of envious.

Guy Gets Propositioned Sex for $400 Car, Soundly Rejects Offer

Did she really expect this to work? A stranger trying to make an unsavory trade for a 400 dollar Grand Prix? Aside from the legality aspect, it doesn't seem like accepting 150 dollars worth of sex from a complete stranger seems like a very smart idea. Money can motivate people to do strange things, and people have a hard time getting what they want without being rude, like this abusive customer who got slammed for demanding to speak to an owner on bereavement leave.

Client Refuses to Pay Web Designer, So He Edits The Guy's Site to Advertise His Competitors

I guess if you want to not pay someone for their work, it's a pretty bad idea to start off your plan by handing over the keys to your site. Karma hit hard here. It's generally a better policy not to lie and steal, especially from people who have a plan to strike back. Kinda like the time this guy got stiffed so he grouted a bathroom with sugar.

Jerk Driver Messes Up Bicyclist, Gets Hit Back In The Wallet

If there's any lesson to be learned by all parties here, it's that it's a good idea to have insurance. Another one would be to not falsify your own insurance documents. Another thing might be, don't tell the person you hit with your car to go to the police while screaming that they'll never get a penny out of you. Not only is it a bad look, it kind of sours the relationship. Sometimes people go all out for revenge.
