petty revenge

We all show up to the meeting with our lunch boxes and proceed to casually eat lunch at the corporate meeting. All 60 of us from our department. The ceo stops his spiel after a few minutes

'[Our] boss tries to deny having said that': Boss insists meeting is a lunch break, so workers eat their lunch and almost get the boss fired

A stupid directive necessitates an even stupider response — that's why these employees decided to eat their lunch in the middle of their CEO's annual update when their boss told them the meeting was going to count as their lunch for the day. The boss would soon learn to regret their bold words when their entire team threw them right under the bus as soon as the CEO started asking questions about the buffet that was taking place before their very eyes. When put to sharp questioning, the boss dec…

How I got a car dealership to give my friend a "newer" car

Idiot friend buys car at outrageous price from scummy dealer, guy gets him a free new car when he realizes dealer committed fraud

The stereotype of the sleazy salesman is one that holds very true to reality. There are far too many people in the trade who will do anything it takes to close a sale and there are also far too many industries breeding these manipulators. Part of it is the fault of commission-based work: When you work with no guarantee of consistent pay, you're likely to turn to drastic methods to put food on the table. You usually then realize that there's no ceiling to your income as long as you can close an…

Park across 2 spaces so nobody parks next to you? Challenge accepted!

'HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO GET IN!': Entitled parkers try to take multiple parking spots and leave one tiny one, dude accepts their challenge

Sometimes a moment so perfect presents itself to us that it's impossible to resist temptation — even if it's something we know we shouldn't be doing. Bonus points here if doing said inadvisable act results in just desserts being served on deserving, entitled persons. That's the chance that presented itself to Redditor u/Jack932008 when they happened across a tiny empty parking space that we being encroached upon by the two adjacent entitled parkers, who were trying to keep their cars well away…

'I definitely put a dent in [their marriage]': Single mother catfishes condescending righteous neighbors in ultimate act of retribution

Whatever belief, culture, lifestyle, or background you come from or follow, there's a unifying ideal that we should all abide by: Treat others with respect. You never know what someone else has had to endure, what they've managed to make it through, or what trials and tribulations they face or have faced. This is why that whole “not judging” thing is so prevalent and important in belief structures ("Do not judge, or you too will be judged") — who are you to think yourself worthy of passing judg…

Cheapskate Boss | I worked as a shift supervisor in a department of about 60 employees. Every year there is a designated week to celebrate our profession.

'I saw red': Cheapskate boss forces shift supervisors to pay for company pizza parties and refuses to tip, shift supervisors pays them in pettily dispensed pennies

Company pizza parties are, at best, a bandage solution for poor employee morale resulting from poor company culture and worker compensation; shelling out $60 for a few pizzas doesn't suddenly erase months of missed breaks, understaffing, unpaid overtime, and other practices that reek of borderline exploitation. Yet — this is the go-to solution for so many workplaces that insist that their exploited, exhausted workers are “family” — if that's really how you treat your family… are they still spea…

Hanlon's razor urges us to “Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity," — yet I can't help but shake the thought that Hanlon might have underestimated the malfeasant tactics that would be employed by 21st-century hustlers to get ahead. For sure, there is still plenty of stupid involved in these strategies but, in a world were insider trading goes unpunished, NFTs

'I f-ed with their heads': Woman gets revenge on cheating boyfriend and her best friend after she discovers their secret relationship

Certain instances of cheating can never be forgiven: Taking extra monopoly money while acting as the banker during a family board game night, using illicit vibrating devices to receive secret messages during a high-ranked chess tournament, and, of course, engaging in a secret relationship with your spouse's best friend behind your spouse's back. If you find yourself betrayed by any one of these, the only recourse is to ditch out on everyone you know and love, hit the gym, and start a new life.…

I got a job with one of those marketing firms, a New Age Capitalism company that insisted we all do yoga and breathing exercises while they rang a little bell and gave us affirmations about how many contracts we were all going to sell and how much money we'd all make. The job was 100% commission,

''They screwed me [...] I screwed them': Company refuses to payout huge sales commission, salesman starts own business and puts them under

All is fair in love and war, and —if you're not willing to play by the rules — don't expect anyone else to either. This salesman was confronted with the dawning, horrible truth that he was going to be cheated out of his hard-earned commission when the company he had just begun working for started making excuses about why they weren't able to pay him out. The company had foolishly set a commission structure with an aggressive exponential curve; when the salesmen joined and blew all previous sale…
