Marketplace Seller Gets Burned on a Collector's Item After Snubbing a Pair of Petty Buyers With Deep Pockets

Playground logic persists in adulthood in many ways. There's always a king of the hill, some kid with glasses getting annihilated on the dodgeball court, and a snarky class clown running around screaming ‘nana-nana-boo-boo’! When you're at odds with another ‘kid’ on the blacktop, the mature thing to do is walk away and let it go. But in a world that's not so different from Lord of the Flies, sometimes the only way to get proper payback is to stoop down to your bully's level

'They were planning on suing the professor': Vandals get served instant justice when they meet an engineering professor's indestructible mailbox

This first-class internet tale is a literary masterpiece, complete with classic themes of right and wrong, unstoppable forces, agents of chaos, and a savvy professor teaching his students the rewards of critical thinking—complete with the bad guys getting their just deserts in the end. It has echoes of some of the greatest literary classics and is one of those stories, an almost urban legend, that you hear a version of every now and again passed as something that happened to a friend of a frien…

'I crashed her computer 3x that day': Delivery driver gets digital revenge on a micromanaging boss by flooding her inbox with 100's of updates

Special requests are rarely taken seriously. When you're getting a haircut, asking for menu substitutions at the restaurant, or when you're begging the DJ to play your favorite song, it seems like you're talking to a brick wall. However, if you're a micromanaging boss with a particularly petty employee, you sometimes get exactly what you asked for…

Tenant buys house from landlord, roommate excitedly announces she's not paying rent and gets evicted: 'She flipped out'

Living with roommates can be tough, even more so when one of the people living there also happens to own the home. They're more than likely to be less tolerant and more particular about having things a certain way and when they want it—even though they're the ones who decided to have roommates for the additional income in the first place. Still, to an extent, it's understandable; nothing in this life is free or comes easy; there's a lot of cost involved when it comes to owning a home. First and…

Guy sells grandma a used car, grandkids trick him into quitting his job for a fake one: 'Should have done your due diligence'

Few things are more sinister, in an everyday sort of way, than those people who try to pass damaged goods off as being without problem, preying on the trusting, unsuspecting, or unlucky in order to turn an incredibly unscrupulous profit. These used car sellers, house flippers, and scam artists can be found hiding in plain sight—trying to pass some painted cabinets, cheap laminate wood flooring, and a sloppier paint job off as a “full renovation”—or selling a car “without issue” on Marketplace o…

'He doesn't make as much as us real engineers': Entitled friends mock guy's career, so he picks up their hefty dinner tab

At the end of the day, you can't accurately gauge someone's income solely based on their job title. Salaries can fluctuate significantly across different industries. So, never think you're better than anyone because you assume you make more money than them. This lesson hit home when a group of entitled friends decided to mock their acquaintance for being an agricultural engineer, dismissing it as not a "real" engineering profession. Throughout their group dinner with their families, they belitt…

Talk about instant karma. In this story, an employee had been diligently contributing to his team's project, all while putting up with the constant yelling and overwork from his new contractor. Eventually, feeling completely burnt out, the employee decided to take a much-needed break. When he approached his boss about it, the reaction was far from supportive. The boss threw a tantrum , yelling obscenities and insisting the employee didn't need a break, but he actually needed therapist instead.…

There's nothing quite as classicly infuriating as being stuck in traffic, sitting trapped in your little steel box in a sea of other little steel boxes, unable to move, go anywhere, or even stretch your legs. You're feeling claustrophobic, probably running late for something , even if you thought you had left with plenty of time to spare.

This must be one of the most subtly infuriating revenge stories, and it's truly ingenious. Living with someone inevitably exposes you to their idiosyncrasies, those small habits that can seriously grate on your nerves. It could be the way they tidy up, their pillow arrangement, or the way they always leave their toothbrush out – the seemingly trivial things that still drive you mad. In this father-son dynamic, the father finds himself unable to tolerate the disorderly way his teen leaves everyt…

'I knew they would definitely fail': Substitute teacher gets back at cheating students by making an uncheatable test

The shenanigans our classmates orchestrated under the supervision of unfortunately unaware substitute teachers are something that we're likely to remember many years afterward. It's one of those things that are such a universal experience that long ago worked its way from real life over into becoming a trope in popular culture. The greatest example I had of this was in 8th grade when my Advanced Geometry teacher had a few weeks off work, and we, of course, were to be taught instead by a substit…

If there's one thing employers hate, it's benefits; even the greatest employer or boss has likely at one point begrudgingly approved a PTO request or ticked off additional PTO for their staff. And I'll admit, as a manager, when you see a PTO request, sometimes your intrusive thoughts kick in… “Do they really need this week off?" “How about the next one?” “Can't your brother just reschedule their wedding?” Obviously, this is ridiculous, but show me a manager who hasn't had these thoughts and I'l…

'I countersued': Tenant turns to revenge after failing to wrest his deposit back from a terrible landlord

Trying to wrest your deposit back from a surly landlord is like trying to convince a dog to give you a share of his dinner. It's not like your landlord is going to growl and potentially bite you… but it's also not entirely out of the question. Regardless, good luck getting much from either; your landlord considered that “deposit” to be his as soon as it hit his bank account. Never mind the fact that the place was in a state and no cleaning was done before you moved in… or the fact that he proce…
