Neighbor Keeps Wasting Cops' Time Over Petty Matters, Loses Half Of Garden

Unfortunately, there are far too many of us that have ended up living next to a neighbor who has seemingly completely lost their grasp on how to act like a reasonable, vaguely sane and bearable human being. Some people end up drifting quite far out there, and the last thing you want to find yourself reckoning with, is having to live next to them. Fortunately, this tale of pro revenge has a happy ending for some folks involved, and it sounds like Steve got the wakeup call he so sorely needed.

And just picturing the rest of the people that were subjected to that infuriatingly long fire drill, rally around to vocalize their complaints is really something special.

Customer Experiences Logical Paradox of Wet Clothes Stuck In Broken Washer

What do you do when your washing machine breaks, sealing your wet clothes inside itself? Do you bust open the machine like a safe full of your own sopping underwear, breaking the warranty in the process? Do you let your clothes rot in their tomb and eat the cost of half your whole wardrobe? It's not an easy choice already, but slap on some wholly unaware customer service and you've got yourself a predicament. Impossible-to-win moments like this are a good reason why some customers cause scenes.

Entitled Mom Harasses Neighbor About Free Babysitting

This is such a wild scenario that we're not even sure if it's totally accurate to just call the mom in this story "entitled." Like, she is far out there, man. The whole element in the story where she's apparently been taking the money her husband has been giving her for babysitting, is just a tad bit ridiculous as well. Like, what's really going on over there? With all that being said, we're just grateful that the dramatic, stressful saga was eventually able to be resolved when everything came to light, and the husband learned about what had been going on. The nerve of some people truly blows the mind.
