Guy Complies with Unfair Printing Fee by Using Every Printer at Once

It's known that everything about college is way too expensive, but charging a fee for a service that no one will fully use is pretty much stealing. It's like if a company offered coupons for free kicks in the crotch. Who's gonna redeem all of them? Anyway this guy decided he wouldn't make the college waste his money, so he wasted it in a way that he at least had control over. People often come up with solutions to problems foisted on them by large institutions, like this guy who was told he had to work on vacation.

It's not uncommon in cases of choosing beggars to send an entitled buyer to pick something up, but in reality send them on en endless wild goose chase.

Couple Stiffs Plumber Dad So He Grouts Their Bathroom With Sugar

Turns out sugar isn't just for destroying car engines. When this couple decided that their bathroom should look different than how they asked for two weeks before, payed half and demanded the guy finish the job, he took revenge into his own hands.

Manipulative Idiot Tries to Book Drummer For Free and Make Him Pay for the Flight Himself

Who in their right mind would think it's appropriate to ask someone fly to a different country to do multiple shows for free, and try to pass it off under some "love of the game" BS? Like, you can be passionate about music, but that would be just plain stupid. We've seen a ton of choosing beggars, but what never fails to bewilder is when they straight up get mad when people don't want to be taken advantage of.

If you thought you were muddling through a tough Wednesday, sit back and count your lucky stars that you're not the guy who threw away his life savings (that he kept in a shoe box) of $23K. Ouch. 

Last Thursday this man from Ashland, Oregon accidentally threw away his life savings of $23K into the recycling bin. Upon realizing his dreadful mistake he immediately contacted Recology, which is a company that provides garbage service to over a million homes and businesses in Washington, Oregon, and California. The odds of anything shaking out in his favor from there were quite slim, but lo and behold he ended up getting the lucky break of his life. 

"We take quite a bit of material every day so the odds of finding that are not much better than a needle in a haystack," said Linda Wise, general manager of the Samoa Resource Recovery Center operated by Recology.

Miraculously $22,940 of his savings managed to stay in the shoebox without falling out. Now that is just wild. Maybe he won't be keeping his life savings in a damn shoe box for m

Insanely Demanding Woman Wants Person to Watch Her Diabetic Dog for Cheap

We can't think of a worse pet sitting situation out there. This lady doesn't even promise the small amount of money she offers, deliberately withholds information about the dog's condition until after the sitter would have agreed, and then calls her weak for not wanting to totally derail her life for a hundred bucks. Absolutely phenomenal. We've seen people make insane lists of rules before, like this bride's friend who made a list for a bachelorette party.

Hardcore Band Wants to Fight Photographer That Won't Work For Free
