Discovering your roommate is cheating you out of money leads to a very certain kind of righteous fury. How dare they do something like that?

'Go home, mom': Family bands together to get even with grandma who used her spare key to enter their home without permission

Another day, another family drama. One person, who we'll call OP, shared an entertaining story about their upstairs neighbors who got even with a family member of theirs who took it one step too far. OP lived in an apartment complex with two-story buildings and shared outdoor stairwells. Their upstairs neighbors were seemingly calm, chill people to whom they said hello once in a while. One day, OP's peaceful reading session was shattered by a commotion - shouts, running, pure family hysteria. E…

‘While you're under my roof, you'll do what I say': College student lands herself a curfew after waking up sister's crying newborn, family picks sides, leaving college student to whine alone

Ah, to be a teenager and resist house rules… we've all been there. One college student named Mia moved in with her sister after attending a university that was closer to where she lived. Mia was allowed to live with her sister under one condition… don't mess with the baby's bedtime. She could come home as late as she wanted, as long as she didn't make any noise. Alas, Mia was young, inconsiderate, and entitled, leading to a big family dispute. She would go out partying, and come home, make a to…

'You can't do this': Irresponsible dude abandons cat with friend, then refuses to answer calls for 3 months or pay for cat's vet visit

One dude was the worst kind of friend you could have. Let's call him Ken. See, Ken had a friend by the name of… let's say, Scott. Ken and Scott were buddies, and when Ken got himself into a tight spot at the ripe age of 28, Scott let him sleep at his place (for free), bought him groceries, and even took care of his cat. All of which he really didn't have to do. Ken didn't work, didn't want to look for a job, and one day, disappeared, leaving his cat with Scott, who didn't particularly want his…

‘Dude, I know it's you…’: Man confronts neighbor who attempted to steal his TV, neighborly dispute ensues

'Sorry, you can't just park your RV here': Demanding landlord informs tenant he's going to park RV in his backyard, doesn't take ‘no’ for an answer

'Sorry, you can't just park your RV here': Demanding landlord informs tenant he's going to park RV in his backyard, doesn't take ‘no’ for an answer

Property owners, also known as landlords, can be quite annoying to deal with if they ignore basic lease rules and go with the flow of whatever their heart desires. For example, this dude explained how his demanding landlord texted him, promptly informing him that 'next week, we'll come to park the RV on your property'. Um, come again? So the dude quickly wrote back, 'No', which led to a conversation that made no sense. Why do landlords think they can just do whatever they want? The tenant pays…

‘I was surprised by his review’: Airbnb guests get their trip refunded after home owner shows up to property unannounced and gives them a bad review

‘I was surprised by his review’: Airbnb guests get their trip refunded after home owner shows up to property unannounced and gives them a bad review

Airbnb used to be way cheaper, but thanks to inflation (among other things), it's almost better to check into a hotel. Also, hosts can be frustrating to deal with. I'm not saying guests are angels, but let's just say it's a double-edged sword. This poster (OP) was attending a friend's wedding and opted to stay in an Airbnb. They had to make sure that pets were welcome, because they were bringing along their dog. Luckily they found just the place but upon arrival, the Airbnb owner showed up unan…

‘This was his response’: Resident requests neighbor leave more space in driveway for mother who is visiting in a wheelchair, neighbor blocks it instead

If someone requests you make their handicapped mother's life easier, then there is no question that you should absolutely do so. Especially if all they ask you to do is park your car somewhere else. Preferably not on their driveway. More preferably not on the road that leads to their house, which would obstruct them from accessing their own vehicle easily. This person uploaded a story to Reddit where they explained how their neighbor was purposely making their life harder. Their handicapped mot…

'No refunds, no exceptions': Restaurant refuses to reimburse customer for food they never delivered

'No refunds, no exceptions': Restaurant refuses to reimburse customer for food they never delivered

‘I never got the food’, said the customer, perplexed, and continued ‘I'd like a refund'. Fair enough, right? Wrong. The restaurant manager's response was astounding, as made it clear that it didn't matter… They were not going to reimburse the customer for the food, regardless of whether they received it or not. If that sounds crazy, that's because it is. But wait, let's pause for a second and rewind. The customer in question took to r/pettyrevenge to share their order gone wrong story. Let's ca…

'He was nothing but polite to you': Gym goer gets told off by woman using a machine he's patiently waiting for, she turns to staff members who support him

Gym etiquette. Ever heard of it? This woman clearly hasn't. One person shared a 'Gym Karen' story to Reddit after it unfolded positively, in his favor. He explained how he was down to his last exercise, and was waiting patiently next to a machine that was occupied by a woman who was notorious for being entitled. He had his earphones in, and wasn't directly facing her. She still got annoyed, and confronted him, asking him what he was doing. He replied that he was waiting for the machine, to whic…

'She tried to get her money back': Woman buys a laptop to use solely on vacation, then attempts to get a full refund when she arrives home

If you've ever sold something online, you know that the customers aren't ideal. They text you, 'Is this available?', only to ghost you when you answer in the affirmative. Or they promise to pick it up, set up a date and a time, and then never show up. Or they actually show up with half the money and give you a sob story on why you should give them the item for free. Yes, I'm speaking from experience. One man decided to sell an old laptop he had back from his University days, posting it online,…

'You don't know what you're talking about': Family informs neighbor property lines haven't changed in 110 years after she tries to claim more land as her own

Neighbors can be a real headache, even (or especially) when you are living in the suburbs. How dare you back into their driveway for 3 seconds? Why aren't your Christmas lights up yet? What have you done to those flowerbeds? So many questions, or rather, demands. Why can't they just focus on their own lives? Maybe they're bored, or they just like making other people miserable. This Karen was quite the challenge, and she approached her neighbors angrily a few times over the fact that people kept…

‘Actually, I don’t need your permission': Student gets back at principal who gives classmates demerit points based on dress code

One student became furious when her school principal gave one of her friends demerit points for 'dress code violations'. The most annoying part was that even though she was wearing the same thing as her friend, she didn't get told off. In a sense, this student was upset that they hadn't been punished. That's some real loyalty right there! The issue was bigger than that, though. This principal would only give certain girls in the school dress code violations. Unfortunately, this was a recurring…
