'I laughed at her': Used car dealership tries to use shady practices and implement fees, surprised when client walks out

A used car dealership thought that they had out-of-state buyers trapped and used the opportunity to try and renege on terms and instate higher fees; they were shocked when the buyers got up and walked away from the deal. This couple had been searching for a used car after losing their previous one in an accident. They finally found one they wanted at a dealership 90 minutes away from their house. They took extra time and care to ensure they had the time to make this journey. Everything on their…

Manager Turned Food-Thief Gets His Just Desserts When Stolen Snack Holds Inky Surprise

This snack didn't smile back when it was stolen from a worker's lunch. Instead, it unloosed its hidden fury in the form of an inky surprise. The trap was set by frustrated workers who were tired of losing their sweet treats out of their lunch to an unknown snack-stealing menace. The workers banded together and loaded up a whole lot of Hostess Ding-Dongs with an edible, but definitely not invisible, ink. The culprit turned out to be none other than the plant manager who got a great taste of his…

HOA Doesn't Want Dude Parking in His Own Driveway, Blocks Street Instead

We'll leave it for you to judge who is in the wrong here, but there ain't no way we're siding with the HOA. Even still, parking cars in front of your neighbor's house and blocking the street in the process is pretty damn entitled behavior… So we're finding it pretty hard to side with the poster either. It's probably the mounting jet lag and utter lack of sleep, but I'm having trouble agreeing with anyone today. Harassing your neighbor with your car collection and making it, so the street is com…

Terrible Roommate Tries to Bully Roommates, Shocked When They Move Out

Well, if it isn't the consequences of my own actions?.. That's exactly what this abhorrent roommate must have been thinking when her roommates announced they were moving out after she decided to make their lives a living hell. The terrible roommate had decided that she was “unhappy” and was going to move out prior to her discovery that she was getting a steal of a deal for her BigMac supersized room. So, instead of moving out and putting herself in an inferior position… somewhere in that twiste…

Employee Tries to Bluff and 'Fakes' Their Two-Week Notice, Shocked When Employer Immediately Accepts

It's commonly said that you should “Always get something in writing” so that you can prove that something was said or an agreement was made. This generally is poor advice when you're doing something like feinting retirement or resignation in order to strong arm your employer into doing something you'd like them to do. Unless you really mean it, it's just really not a good idea… because by putting it in writing you're literally giving them written notice, and, if they're eager to be rid of you a…

HOA (and Knight of 'Ni') Karen Demands Exasperated Homeowner Fetch a Different Shrubbery, Costs HOA 'Potentially Millions'

What's next? Cutting down the mightiest tree in the forest with a herring? This HOA Karen, who also apparently happens to be a member of the ‘Knights Who Say “Ni”', demanded that this homeowner fetch her another shrubbery… and place it beside the other shrubbery , only slightly higher so that you get a two-level effect, and with a little path running down the middle. Apparently, there was something wrong with the type of bush that was planted on the homeowner's property. No, it wasn't too big o…

Manager Sells $400k of Electronics to Employees at 90% Off in Order to Get Revenge on Shady CEO's Plot

A nefarious plot by the CEO to lay off all workers at a chain electronic store triggered a rebellion by the store's manager that would send the corporate entity reeling. Is this a plot line written by George RR Martin? Or a modern retelling of Robin Hood? You be the judge! It's no secret that CEOs and others in similar positions of unchecked power often use said power to line their coffers and fill the wallets of their closest friends and allies. It's not above them to make closed-door deals th…

Son Destroys Terrible Father's Pension By Getting His Mother What She's Owed

Most of us would consider ourselves fortunate not to be the spawn of the "Canadian Satan" or the "Satan" of any other nationality for that matter. I had always thought that that whole Satan thing would work like the Highlander. You know, "There can only be one" and all that -so I'm surprised and impressed to learn that there are “Satans” of different nationalities.

Graphic Designer Tries to Save Company and Client From Disney's Copyright Squadron, Boss Doesn't Listen Then Tries to Scapegoat Them

Disagreeing with your workplace superiors and the business owners typically isn't ever going to be well received, even when you're completely 100%, and verifiably, correct. Most people just don't like having their own ideas challenged, and fewer still have the ability to admit when they're wrong. Ego has a lot to say about this; most of us have fragile egos that are battling a persistent imposter syndrome masked by an outwardly excessive display of confidence and authority. Anything that this w…

'Want some free gas? I gotcha bro!': Neighbor gets revenge on gas thieves with sabotaged gas canisters

These jokers thought it would be a laugh to repeatedly lift a couple of cans of gasoline off of their neighbor. What they couldn't fathom in their idiotic brains was how quickly their target wised up to their games. Right after the first time, from there on out, they were lifting bait cans consisting of a diabolical mix of all kinds of fuels. The mix basically boiled down to being the engine equivalent of what eating bacon grease mixed with Red Bull would do to your heart. This thread was poste…

‘Stop wasting time and follow the job order’: Service rep tries to save rude customer from order error and complies with their arrogant response

It's only natural for a customer service rep to try and save you from a grave error. In most situations, they would have no requirement to do so, but ensuring that they have a happy customer receiving the desired product will make their job easier in the long run, no matter how altruistic they intend to be, by correcting a response. There's nothing worse than being contacted by an angry customer insisting that they didn't order exactly what they ordered and received. In this situation, people c…
