'You sure mate? It's a lotta sand': Australian Builder rudely refuses to notify contacts of his new number, ends up with a whole lotta sand where he doesn't want it

When you change your phone number you should probably do your due diligence and let people who are likely to contact you know that there is a new way to do so. Otherwise, whatever poor sod ends up with your old number is just going to be inundated with requests to reach you. This is especially true if you're operating a business or doing something that fields a high volume of phone calls. But, if you ended up with my old number, it would never even be an issue; I don't stay in contact with anyo…

'I won over $5,000': Guy turns the tables on scammer, gets paid for a car accident that they caused

It's not often that being at fault in an accident actually gets you money, but when a scammer tries to extort you for fake repair costs, it can end up working out in your favor. When u/bigcapper69 accidentally ran into someone else's vehicle in a parking lot, they immediately apologized profusely and offered to pay for the damages. They describe that the scammer, who they refer to as 'Brent', initially came across as very cool. Brent seemed to be taking everything in stride and was quite happy…

If you're going to go around being obscenely rude to other people, there are bound to be consequences—somewhere, sometime… at some point. You can't go about spreading the same toxic negativity and not expect the universe to throw it back in your face at some point. After all, you reap the seeds that you sow. Well, this terrible coworker was known for their rude responses, hot takes, and general know-it-all attitude; they landed themselves in hot water after rudely refusing assistance from their…

'Scammers Scammed By Uncle and Granny' : Backyard Dealership Scams Two Innocent Old Ladies with Defunct Cars, Uncle Takes the Ultimate Revenge and Tricks Swindler Into Taking the Loss On $10,000

The scammers do the scamming and take advantage of everybody and anybody, that especially includes your elderly grandma who is just trying to buy a car. However, that is a horrible way to look at like and if you do that, you are going to get some instant karma in some way—perhaps in some ultimate epic petty revenge. A Redditor recently shared a story of their elderly grandma getting scammed and then his unc…

‘Fine, I’ll Play the System’ : Man Commutes 175 Miles per Day to Work, Company Refuses to Reimburse Him for Transit, Leading to Malicious Compliance

Committing to a 6+ hour commute to work every day is a superpower that most of us cannot claim to have. I certainly wouldn't be willing to do that under any circumstance. This Redditer told his impressive tale of malicious compliance, where he beat the system that was designed to fail, after asking his company to reimburse his travel costs. At the time he was living in San Diego, working in Downtown Los Angeles (that's a 175-mile per day commute). He was in the middle of studying for an exam th…

'He struggled. He struggled hard': Boastful braggart requests chef's hottest dish and lives to regret it

People really will just pick the most random thing and build their personality around it; it's as if they just spun a wheel of haphazardly selected topics and went with the first thing it landed on. Enter I-can-eat-hotter-foods-than-you guy; everyone knows this guy, and chances are he's one of your friends or a friend of a friend and—well… is kinda known for being a boastful egomaniac. Somehow, at some point, he decided to base his fragile ego around the spice levels of food, and now he's going…

Entitled Family Demands Medical Assistance, Embarrassed by Over-the-Top Emergency Medical Response

Be careful what you wish for! If what you desire is urgent medical assistance (for a non-urgent injury) from someone who isn't qualified or even capable of providing that assistance. The real truth of the matter is that this family felt entitled to receive attention from this customer service representative simply because they were a customer service representative — and that's what they're there for, right? To justify your need to feel important. I don't know if I can really stand by this coll…

Bad Boss Steals Super Bowl Tickets, Loses Client and Pays Hefty Price

I wish I could say that this story ends with the partner being kicked out of their own firm and having to pay back the $10,000 worth of tickets they stole from their poor worker — alas, that's not always the way the world works. I love a good over-the-top revenge story as much as the rest of you — the kind of story that feels like it would be right at home in the pages of a classic Detective Comics comic book; complete with exclamations “Bang!.. Pow!" as the boss is getting their behind handed…

Feud over alarm clock costs insane aunt her entire career, she gets arrested following nuclear revenge

A small spark of discourse can grow into a wildfire when both sides are fanning the flames; ego, pride, and prejudice can drive us to go great lengths and take us down surprising paths, all over something that totally wasn't worth worrying about in the first place. It's no small wonder that something as simple as a dispute over an alarm clock can drive two family members to a point where they're clawing at each other and marching down toward mutually assured destruction. The original poster of…

'It added up to a lot': Employees get massive payout when micromanaging manager insists supervisor double check team's clock-ins

It's always annoying when you get pulled up by a pedantic manager for being five minutes late without them even taking into consideration all of the times that you have been 15 minutes early. Oftentimes, even if you're early nine times out of ten, these types of managers will still write you up regardless. One of this supervisor's team members got pulled up by management for coming in five minutes late. It got back to the supervisor's direct boss, who instructed them to audit their clock-in and…

Micromanaging manger tries to ban yoga pants, big hairy dude makes them part of his daily wear

If you're going to try and strictly enforce a rule, you'd better make sure that that rule is actually a rule first — otherwise, you're just opening a door that you might wish you had left closed. In this case, that door is a big hairy man rocking a tight pair of yoga pants. When this new manager joined the company, they made an immediate target out of the employee's uniforms; the original poster writes that they made a particular target out of the girls' yoga pants.
