Homeowner gets even with HOA who demanded he remove his boat from driveway: 'I removed it, just like you asked'

Homeowner gets even with HOA who demanded he remove his boat from driveway: 'I removed it, just like you asked'

Your mailbox is a disgrace, and needs a fresh coat of paint, they said. Your flowerbeds are looking a little dull, get a gardener, they said. HOA likes to say a lot of things, and if you don't listen, well, you get fined. That's just how it is, and there isn't much you can do about it. The HOA members are always grumpy, miserable-looking people who have their noses high in the air and think that they're better than everyone else. They don't have much to be proud of in their life, so their lawn…

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

'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…

'[I was] following orders!': Son pranks Dad with malicious compliance, takes instructions too literally by wrapping gravel stones in masking tape

'[I was] following orders!': Son pranks Dad with malicious compliance, takes instructions too literally by wrapping gravel stones in masking tape

Thankfully, this family had enough of a sense of humor for this prank to be fodder for laughter down the road. Not every family member has the ability to laugh at some family business sabotage. Personally speaking, I know my family would not be laughing. I once did the classic clear wrap April Fools prank on my mother when I was a kid and she still hasn't forgiven me to this day. This thread was posted to Reddit's r/MaliciousCompliance subreddit by u/bigjoekennedy , who revealed that as a kid,…

'The landlord requested a new paint job': Sailors get back at landlord by painting his rental property from floor to roof

This sailor is sticking to the honor code to help people in his community. Not everyone agrees with his hands-on methods, though. The people of the internet are divided over this guy's grandfather's story of malicious compliance. It's a classic tale of landlord versus tenant. Unless you live in a rent stabilized building, your landlord can charge you basically whatever they feel is fair for rent. This is a big problem these days, since many of us are priced out of living in even the most modest…

'The painters asked multiple times if they were sure': Homeowner couple follow HOA rules by painting their house in bright neon shade

'The painters asked multiple times if they were sure': Homeowner couple follow HOA rules by painting their house in bright neon shade

This HOA member had a personal vendetta against her neighbors. It seems like this is one of those stories of neighbors who have bad blood. Oftentimes, a small issue will spark an argument that goes unresolved. Then, over years or even decades, a feud between neighbors begins until eventually they're nemeses. These fights can get so personal — because they're your neighbor, they probably know your work schedule, who you live with, and any number of other personal tidbits about your life. The sto…

'You will NEVER complete a project with a single visit to a home store': Homeowner shares the unfortunate 'unwritten rules' of house ownership that no one talks about

Homeowners had some sage advice to offer to the Reddit community about what it's like dealing with nosy neighbors, property issues, and going to the hardware store 857 times for a single project. For many people, switching from renting to owning a home can seem like a major upgrade . You have more space, maybe you have a lawn and some friendly neighbors , and you can have parties and barbecues whenever you feel like it. What's the catch? Well, owning a home means you have to care for the house…
