Sadly, bad things can and do happen to good people – but fortunately, sometimes justice is served and bad things do end up happening to bad people as well. Whether you’re a staunch believer in karmic justice or not, it’s hard not to believe when you see someone get a taste of their own medicine. Here are Reddit’s best stories of times when karma hit hard.
1. Thanks mom
I was in daycare as a child. I had very long hair that my dad always put into a ponytail. There was girl that would pull my ponytail all the time. We were doing a musical chairs thing at the end of the day while parents were picking us up. The girl was behind me and kept yanking my ponytail, I kept telling her to stop.
The teacher didn’t see anything so [couldn’t] do anything about it. There were a bunch of parents waiting for us to finish our game, my mom included and she kept doing it and the teacher “didn’t see it” so I turned around and punched her as hard as I could, she stumbled into the “cubbies” where we kept our coats.
The teacher tried to chastise me and my mom was like “nope. I didn’t see anything.” Didn’t even get in trouble.
2. Put out their fire
I’m from San Diego and during the summer, you have to claim bonfire pits on the beach really in the morning if you want it for that night. So my friends and I got to the beach at 8am and stayed there so we can get a bonfire going into the night. Just before sundown, this one couple asked if they could share the bonfire with us and since our group wasn’t too big, we decided to share it with them.
However that couple proceeded to bring a group of like 15 others and they literally surrounded the pit and pushed us out. We were p***ed but we were so tired from being at the beach all day so we decided to head out. Little did we know what that night had an extreme high tide warning…
When we moved all of our stuff over the wall that divided the beachwalk with the beach, a huge wave came in and washed out that whole group surrounded by our bonfire. The wave flipped over their table of food, took a handful of sandals back into the ocean, and destroyed all their stuff.
The best part was this one girl was trying to jump the wall to save herself but she didn’t jump high enough and ended up falling right back into the waters. Karma’s a b****.
3. Wise words
My old manager was a monster. Belittled people, made a hostile environment, denied anything that would make coworkers happy while giving himself every comfort, even denied me a half day to go to my mother’s funeral, adding, “Would it be a big deal if you couldn’t go?”
He finally stepped on his d*** after he wrote up a fictitious counselling statement about someone and the entire office revolted. The manager wasn’t fired like we wanted, but he was relieved. So in comes the new manager. Very well regarded, 20 year Air Force veteran (retired at E-9), humble guy who knew how to handle people.
We have our first awkward team meeting, old manager bitterly in attendance. As the new manager is giving his “nice to meet you” speech, he sees the d*****bag glaring around the table trying to intimidate people. That’s when he completely changed what he was going to say.
He stops talking, pauses for a few seconds, and then says, “You know, when I was in the Air Force I learned that if you take care of your people, they’ll take care of you.” He then stared directly at the old manager and said, “And if you don’t take care of your people, they’ll take care of you.”
4. Patience is a virtue
Sitting on a highway late at night because of a bad car accident. The highway was packed and barely moving. One guy thinks he’s smarter than everyone else and tries to drive on the shoulder. He makes it a good little ways before running into an on ramp, which was also packed with cars, but that didn’t stop him one bit.
He had nowhere to go, and no one let him in. He was stuck between cars in the right most lane and cars from the on ramp. Everyone stuck bumper to bumper and flowed around him. I went from watching him pass me and almost getting out of my view to passing him and losing sight of him in my rear view. It was a great feeling.
5. That’s got to hurt
When I was a kid, we visited Montreal. I had gotten a hockey puck as a souvenir. While we were in our hotel, my sister decided to mess with me by hiding it. I got mad and yelled in my high pitched voice “GIVE ME BACK MY HOCKEY PUCK!” before smacking her in the head with a pillow. Guess where she had hidden it… I felt really bad.
6. Second chance at justice
I got rear ended in a turn lane by a girl texting. She was doing 45mph and I was stopped. No major injuries. I went to her court date hoping she got a big fine or something. She got a $50 ticket. I was a little bit upset.
As I was sitting at the stop light to pull out of the court I watched her run a red light and tbone a cop. I don’t normally laugh at other peoples misfortune, however, I laughed my a** off at that one.
7. Swift justice
I work in an ER and once a girl got brought in by ambulance after being assaulted. She was walking down the street when some guy tackled her to the ground and tried to drag her down an alley. A Good Samaritan managed to chase him off and call the cops.
Like 20 minutes later they brought in a guy in full cardiac arrest. Turns out the police found the attacker and chased him several blocks when he collapsed and his heart gave out. He was dead on arrival and the victim IDed him right in the ER. Pretty dark, but that’s karma.
8. How embarrassing
I was kicking a customer out for being racist and cursing at one of my employees. He yelled offensive stuff all and then he tried to slam the door on his way out, but it had one of those things on it that makes the door close slowly. He pushed it hard, it didn’t budge and he slipped and fell on the floor. We had a good laugh.
9. Instant karma
The other day I was taking my dog for a walk around the neighborhood. She squatted down to take a s*** and I reached for my doggie bags only to realize I was fresh out. So I peeked around making sure nobody was looking, and I just left it.
10 minutes later I’m walking across the road and I cut through a thin grass median in the centre and what do you know – I step in dog s***. I wasn’t even mad, I knew I deserved it.
10. Deserved it
I was at a party one time, and this one girl couldn’t stop talking s*** about this other girl that was coming to the party. The other girl shows up and this dude picked her up and hugged her and spun her around in a way where her foot kicked the girl that was talking s*** right in the head/face while she was sitting on the couch. Her beer spilled all over her and she caught a black eye.
11. Got the sack
I work for a contracted unloading service in a warehouse. One of the guys on my crew is an absolute little b**** sometimes. Complains about his work, tries to leave early every day, bums cigarettes off everyone without ever bringing his own pack, etc. He even owes some of my other coworkers money, I believe.
But I digress. On Thursday, he lost his s*** over a produce load and threw a temper tantrum: kicking boxes, tearing down tall pallets of product, and causing a lot of damage… Right as the site manager walked by his trailer door. Got suspended without pay and was told he is on his last chance with the company. Now it’s only a matter of time before he gets fired. Sweet, sweet, karma.
12. Soaked through
Had a moron driver in a Porsche convertible tailgating me on a 6 lane highway. I wasn’t in the far right lane, but I was in the middle so he still could have passed if he wanted to. He finally passes me and blows his horn at me right as he blows on past.
We get on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and it immediately starts torrentially pouring. There was nowhere for him to stop so he had to drive a several mile long bridge with his top down the whole way. He would have been completely soaked, and the car interior was probably ruined.
13. That stings
With glee, I ran over a bee on my tricycle once. Aimed for it on purpose and then SPLAT. Minutes later I got called into the house and I stepped on that same bee, stuck with stinger up, in my bare feet. It hurt so badly. I told my mom everything and she told me I got exactly what I deserved. I agreed. I now go out of my way to be kind to insects.
14. Spoilt their fun
This is from my younger years. A friend of mine had a cousin visiting around Victoria Day in Canada (aka firecracker day). When I went to visit him, I was told he was in the backyard. I go back there and he and his cousin are setting off firecrackers. They have a big bowl of loose firecrackers.
I ask if I can set a couple off as well and both my friend and his cousin start tossing lit firecrackers at me while laughing. I figure that they are both acting like greedy a**holes, so I decided to leave. Just as I’m about to leave a spark gets into the bowl.
The entire bowl of firecrackers ignite leaving only a few unexploded. This lasted about 10 or 15 seconds. The stunned look on my friend and cousin’s face was pure “karma is a b****.” I’m laughing at them. I’m sure they planned a whole afternoon of setting them off.
I was working at a summer camp this past summer, and all the male campers and staff were playing dodgeball while the girls cabins did their own ‘girl night’ kinda thing. It was campers (and jr. staff) vs. staff, and it was kinda nearing the end of the night, so the rules for the staff were that if you got hit, you were done with no way of revival.
I looked a cross the gym and saw that one of my fellow staff was hit and laying on the ground with his hands behind his head. So naturally I grab a dodgeball, sneak around behind him keeping myself out of his field of view, and throw the ball at his d***.
As I was laughing and running away, It bounced off his d*** and, without hesitation, he brought his leg up and kicked the ball as hard as he could, and it hit me straight in the face with enough force to knock me off my feet. There was no coming back from that one.
My son’s abuser walked free in court. None of our mutual friends believed he could do something like that, so I was socially shunned after the hearing as well. Not long afterwards, the man was hit by a car and spent nine months in a coma before finally dying of a MRSA infection in his lungs. I was shocked when I heard the news, but also vindicated.
I don’t want to say I’m glad he suffered, because the kind of person to do something like that to a child is already tortured along their own karmic path. The reason I’m relieved he’s gone is because my son will never be hurt by that man, his father, again. It’s a huge weight off my mind to know that my son is growing up in a much safer world now.
17. Fake friends
Last spring I didn’t get a date to the junior prom. I wasn’t thrilled but I figured I’d go stag. I found the perfect dress and was actually really excited. Then my group of friends said I couldn’t come with them. Why? I didn’t have a date and it would ‘ruin the pictures’ if I stood by myself. That hurt my feelings, but then it got even worse.
And since I wasn’t going to be in the pictures, they said, wouldn’t it just be so awkward for me to get ready with them and be at Claudia’s (the ringleader’s) house before hand? And of course, wouldn’t I just be so uncomfortable being the only one in the limo with no boyfriend? And what would I do afterwards anyways? I mean everyone knows what happens at the parties after prom. So I didn’t go at all. But guess whose limo never showed up?
18. Put in her place
Not my story but my mom’s. Apparently when she was a young lass, there was a girl at school who was always a major b**** to her. Hated my mom for whatever reason and always made fun of her. Fast forward to my mom as a college aged woman now dating a guitarist from Bob Marley’s band, out at a bar with him getting a drink.
Dude goes to the bathroom and said b**** from back in the day comes up to my mom and says, “OMG, did you see who is here?!” At that moment, dude comes and puts his arm around my mom and says “hey babe, what’s happening?” She said the look on that girl’s face was priceless. A little petty for sure, but definitely an earned and harmless moment.
19. Don’t mess with sprinklers
Late to the party but this happened to me. When I was younger (high school) my city had automatic sprinklers in most of the parks and areas with grass – they would turn on automatically at like 3 or 4 am. So being a young dumb kid me and my friends figured out if you kicked them hard enough the top would break off and the sprinkler would full force shoot a huge stream into the air from then on.
We thought it was hilarious and were never caught. We kept on with this until one day they started replacing them with new super strong steel ones. I kicked one and broke my big toe and while in agony rolled my ankle so f***ing bad it was bruised up for a week and has never been the same. I definitely got what I deserved.
20. Served him right
When I was in middle school I was sitting at lunch with my normal lunch group. There wasn’t enoungh room for this one guy at the table so he sat at the table next to us by himself. One of our friends felt bad so he left our table and sat next to him.
The kid who was originally sitting by himself moved to our table, took the other guys old spot and leaving the other guy completely alone. We all moved to the other table and left him alone again. It was like musical chairs in that canteen, powered by karma.
21. Where he belongs
I was in high school, and this huge guy used to threaten me all the time. I didn’t take his s***, and that just made it worse. Constantly threatening me, trying to start stuff, etc. I got to go and testify against him at his last death penalty sentencing trial. He killed a older couple. He’s going to rot in jail. HAHA! If he ever escapes… I’m on his list.
22. Why you should never show off
A friend of a friend joined our group as we were going to a college football game. He spent the night aggressively hitting on our super-hot friend whose husband wasn’t around. She was obviously uncomfortable about it so I pulled him aside and told him she was married. His response was “So? A ring doesn’t plug a hole!” Gross.
In the parking lot he was goofing off and showed off his athleticism by sprinting across the parking lot, which wasn’t well-lit. The separators in the parking lot were those waist-high poles with chains connecting them. Almost invisible in the dark. This guy ran into the chain full-speed.
It hit him just below the waist, causing a complete stop followed by swinging back and pivoting over it onto his head. It wasn’t a minor injury, he could barely walk for a week and had a concussion. The friend is still happily married to her husband, and that guy, as far as I know, is still single.
23. Dodged a bullet
My sister’s fiance cheated on her after a four-year relationship and decided to leave my sister for the woman. The woman he cheated with decided that after a month it was appropriate to cheat ON HIM with his best friend. Ha ha, I never liked the guy anyway and now my sister is with this awesome sexy carpenter guy. Very hilarious.
24. Put in his place
Last year I felt unhappy with my job and tried to talk to my manager about it to see if I could fill in a different position. Follow a course or something so I could do something new. Win-win. Got told that if I didn’t like my job I should quit and look for something else.
After all my hard work at that company it made me feel like s***. A coworker took her position last month and my manager got downgraded and is now an assistant. Sweet sweet karma.
25. Role reversal
I had a “friend” in high school who would constantly tell me to kill myself, spread horrible rumours about me, and was just insanely mean to me. This girl was the typical beautiful cheerleader type girl who got everything she wanted. Fast-forward a few years and I graduated college and moved out to LA for an awesome job.
She contacted me asking if I would talk to my boss to see if I could get her a job, since my job was also her dream job. It may sound petty, but it was so nice that for once she wasn’t going to get everything she wanted.
She had treated me like complete s***, and then years later she thought she could just make amends and I would help her out. I was perfectly polite of course, but I didn’t let her use my connections for her own gain, and I felt pretty good about it. I’ve progressed up the career ladder and I haven’t heard from her again. Some friend.
26. What did he expect?
I was probably in third grade, in the elementary school bathroom. I was peeing and so was some other little kid when some fifth or sixth grade bully came in. [He] pulled the wallet out of the other kids pocket. Other kid turns around, peeing all over the bully. The bully’s face of horror and instant regret was absolutely classic.
27. A quick comeback
I was on my way home from work and stopped at a grocery store to get something to eat. I was wearing a really ratty and torn hoodie that I wear to work all the time. In front of me in line are two kinda-pretty girls. They are not-so-quietly talking s*** about the cashier. The cashier could definitely hear and was trying not to look upset.
One of them turns to me, looks me up and down and nudges her friend. Pointing towards me she says “looks like someone can’t afford nice things”. I looked her dead in the face and in my most sincere voice said “my dad gave me this sweatshirt the winter before he died”. The girl looked horrified and immediately began to cry. I just walked away and got into another line.
28. Don’t mess with frisbees
Used to play frisbee in a parking lot on Saturday nights, people would drive their cars through to f*** with us on a regular basis. One night a guy drives his car up to the edge of the area we are playing in and starts revving his engine really aggressively, we get the point and clear the area.
Dude drops the clutch and speeds through the parking lot but failed to notice the raised median in his path. Hits it going pretty fast, wrecks the underside of his car getting a little bit of air. The car comes to a stop, it is clearly leaking a lot of fluid.
It’s seemingly unable to drive anymore when the cherry tops of this sundae: a police officer who was just hanging out in a different part of the shopping area saw the whole thing go down and cruises up on the dude with lights flashing. We go back to playing.
29. A bad nurse
I work at a residential facility for individuals with developmental disabilities. The other day I was punching out after working an overnight shift and I hear the nurse who administers medication screaming at staff over something relatively minor in front of the residents while they were eating breakfast, stressing everybody out.
I leave and go across the street to another house because I had to hand in paperwork there (also I was so mad about her being inappropriate that I felt like I was about to say some things to her that would not be good for my job security). The same nurse comes into the house I am now in to begin administering meds in that house. The second she steps in the house a resident runs up to her, punches her in the face, and runs away. So satisfying.
30. Patience is a virtue
I was in a queue to pay for parking and had my kids with me. It was my turn to pay but this woman cut in front of me making a p*** poor attempt to pretend she didn’t see me. The machine swallowed her ticket and threw up a “wait for assistance” message.
Well by the time I went to a different machine, paid my ticket, bundled the kids into the car and drove out of the parking lot I could see that b**** was still waiting for assistance.
31. Poor bird
I was at the shore with some friends eating lunch. A seagull was watching my sandwich closely so I decided to tease it a little. I proceeded by pretending to toss my food over its way about 20 times. Every time the poor bird was fooled and left wanting. I guess it got fed up because the bird decided to fly right over me and take a s*** all over me and my food moments later.
32. Now the shoe’s on the other foot
I was checking a guy’s groceries out and when I finished he realized he forgot his wallet in the truck. It happens a lot more than you might think, no big deal. This woman behind him was really impatient. Just being extremely rude to him very condescending the entire time.
He comes back, pays for it and leaves. Now… I’m checking this lady’s groceries out. That’s when she realized she forgot her debit card in her vehicle too. Goes out to get it but can’t find her keys. She locked her keys and card in her van. No groceries for her!
33. Squirrel stands in dog doo-doo
Many years ago, a group of us were together with a guy who was nicknamed Squirrel. He was a small guy who loved attention and didn’t care what kind. One of his favourite things to do was jump into puddles to splash whoever was walking past with water, and he would do it again and again until the victim was way past annoyed.
One day we were walking down a sidewalk and there was a large fresh pile of dog poo on the walkway, he dropped back a little behind us then ran forward and took a leap to land on it just as we were close. It was apparently very slippery, his feet slipped out from under him and he landed right in it. It was a thing of beauty.
34. That’s what you get
My husband of seven years cheated on me and admitted it when I asked. The next morning he was mowing the lawn and ran over a beehive with the mower. He is allergic to bees. I had to take him to the hospital all blown up like a big puffy sack of s***. Obviously it’s never fun to see someone you care about so much in such terrible pain, but I did think he had it coming.
35. Cheaters never prosper
Dated a guy for 6 years. He broke up with me seemingly out of nowhere, saying he needed time to himself. I found out later he had a new girlfriend that he had been cheating on me with. Well, after about 2 months, she dumped him for her ex, and I guess they weren’t too careful because she also gave him chlamydia as a parting gift.
36. Why you should never steal
On a trip backpacking around Greece once I had a bad experience in a hotel and decided to take one of their beautifully painted stone eggs from the bowl in the reception as compensation. When we were on the ferry to the next island I started noticing a horrible smell coming from my bag, and the people around me had obviously noticed as well.
It turns out that it was not a stone egg at all, but a painted boiled egg that had broken in my bag, the whole thing had become so rotten it had turned a nice shade of green and the smell was almost intolerable. I had to borrow a lot of my friends clothes for the rest of the trip but at least it taught me a good lesson.
37. Don’t dish out what you can’t take
Back in the day, my dad went to college, and his particular dormitory had around 15 floors. There was this dude, we’ll call him Chester, who lived in the center apartment on the 14th floor, facing the north side. This meant that Chester’s window was located directly above the entrance to the dormitory.
Chester, being the a**hat he was, would come home from school, and wind down by throwing water balloons at the people walking into the building. Not even people he particularly hated or anything. Chester just did this to everyone for fun. One day, he hits my dad. Big mistake.
My dad and his friend bring a garbage can up 15 flights of stairs, head to the bathroom, and fill it with water. They then head up to his friend’s dorm, which happens to be the center dorm on the 15th floor, right above Chester’s. A couple of girls walk up the steps to the door. Chester leans out of his window prepared to throw the balloons. And is promptly hit with an entire garbage can of water.
38. Poor pigeons
Sitting at a stop light, I watch as two preppy girls from the university chase pigeons off the sidewalk. They fly up and land a few feet further every time. As they approach the intersection, one girl squeals and runs right at them. As they take flight in the same direction (now across the street where traffic is flowing) and a bus drives by at full speed, probably 35/40 mph.
Two of the pigeons don’t make it in time and instantly transformed into a cloud of feathers and smaller pigeon pieces. Then I hear the blood curling scream. “They’re ON me!” “THEY’RE ON ME!”. That girl was COVERED in pigeon guts and feathers, and completely losing her s***. Her friend was doubled over in laughter. Don’t think she’ll be tormenting pigeons ever again.
39. Brotherly love
I was once at the park with my brother, and we were both on our bikes. I stopped because I had some kind of trouble with my chain. He biked past me, pointing and laughing. I saw the fence, but figured it wasn’t worth it to take the time to warn him. His laughter was cut short as he went head first over the fence and straight onto the pavement. I’m just glad he found the situation as funny as I did.
40. Babysitter from hell
When I was 7 I had this really terrible babysitter. She would lock me in my room and lock my 5 year old autistic brother in the basement (he didn’t understand how locks or light switches worked so he cried pretty much the entire time). One day after Christmas I took my new point and shoot camera out for a spin, pretending I was a detective.
I would creep along walls and jump around corners snapping away at whatever I could find. I could hear my babysitter talking to her boyfriend on the phone so I thought I would “investigate.” I crept up to the kitchen and then swung around the corner snapping away in my camera. She got really angry and chased me around the house as I was laughing my head off.
The next week my mom takes me to get my film developed. Her and I sat down in the mall food court and looked at the pictures, because what mom wouldn’t want to see the pictures their son took with their Christmas present.
As we flipped through my mom snatched one of the pictures out of my hand and her face went red. My mom was holding photographic proof of my babysitter going through my mom’s purse. I’ve never seen my mom light anyone up as bad as she did that poor 16 year old girl.
41. Stay in your lane
I have 45+ minute commute to work every day. It should only take 15 minutes, but traffic is always a disaster. There’s a carpool lane. I constantly see single drivers hauling a** down the carpool lane. One day, I said “alright, f*** it, I’m gonna do it too”.
The closer I get the carpool lane, the more I feel like a piece of s***, so I decided to be a good person and just stay in the regular lanes. A little bit up the road, I see a cop busting every single person in the carpool lane. I dodged one heck of a bullet right there.
42. Their lucky day
My friends and I were walking down the street in high school, before any of us had cars. Some random girl hung out the window of her friend’s car and shouted “WALKERS!” at us on our way home, throwing a McDonald’s soda at us (she missed). I noticed something fall out of her car as she threw the soda, but they sped off too fast to notice.
We walked up to it and sure enough it was a “clutch” style wallet. We opened it up and there was $80 in it! None of us had jobs so we were suddenly rich. We split it 4 ways, took her wallet to a nearby park and took turns peeing on it. I’ve never been more satisfied spending $20 in my life (this was the 90s so I could eat lunch for a week on $20).
43. The tech thief
Back in October 2012; 10th grade, I bought my 3DS in order to play Pokemon X. 5 days later, it was stolen from my locker in PE. Next day, I tell my friend about what happened and told me he might know who did it. Following day, a kid I never met claimed to have found it.
Turns out, he was the thief my friend described earlier in that morning who stole it and tried to sell my own device back for a reward for doing a ‘good deed’. The device was in terrible condition and he tried to lie about the game was missing. Fortunately, it was not, but I was still pretty pissed about the device.
I cussed him out and refused to give him the reward. He then has the nerve to tell me to ‘go f*** myself’. I reported this to the police in the school who didn’t do jack s*** about the situation at first, but a few days later caught the kid after he tried to steal an iPad. Afterwards, he’s forced to buy me another new 3DS. Fast forward to November; the week after thanksgiving, he’s expelled for another failed robbery.
44. Should have kept his mouth shut
When my brother and I were kids, (mid 90s) my parents bought us nice rollerblades and took us skating often. We both got pretty good at it, which made my brother act like a cocky little f***. One day at the rink, as we sped past by a couple of girls struggling to maintain balance in their rented skates.
He looked over his shoulder, pointed, laughed loudly, and made a rude comment about their skates and technique. Then the Karma gods came for him. He then crashed into a wall, which he would have seen if he wasn’t busy looking behind him and talking s*** to strangers.
45. It pays to be patient
It was third grade and it was winter. The school had pushed all the snow off to the sides of the tarmac (paved area of the schoolyard) and there were these five foot high snow banks that kids were sliding down. The snow banks were basically ice since it had rained and then froze over. Lots of kids were having fun sliding down them while the teachers weren’t watching.
I went to slide down the snow bank, this b*****d comes up and pushes me out of the way so he can slide down the snowbank first. He’s the type of idiot that tried to stand up and slide down the snowbank. He starts going, slips, smacks face first into the pavement. The kid broke his nose and I slid down the snowbank in victory while he wailed.
46. Flying pizza
I was outside my local bar which is next to a gym. These two young’uns went by on their skateboard, one of them was carrying a pizza. The kid skates by the window showing the box to the people inside and said, “Bet you wish you could have some of this.”
He made it about four feet past the window and proceeded to fall flat on his face, the pizza went flying across the sidewalk. I made sure to laugh loud enough that he heard it. Who was the person who said revenge is a dish best served cold? It’s got to be hot enough to melt the cheese.
47. Card declined
I work for the service desk at the Home Depot. I had a customer a few weeks ago come up to the desk with his wife cussing out a cashier because their home depot card wasn’t working and the cashier was a “f***ing idiot” and all this uncalled-for nonsense.
So I get his card and call credit services. My manager is standing in a corner behind the desk keeping an eye on things and is ready to jump in if necessary. Meanwhile, another customer at the desk tells infuriated guy to chill out and quit cursing around the ladies as its disrespectful and rude.
Infuriated guy just gets more p****d, the wife jumps in and now it’s just a fiasco. I’m starting to get nervous that a fist fight is going to break out, and I can feel the manager getting nervous too. I finally get through to credit services and they tell me that his card is being declined because he didn’t have enough available credit left on his card.
I had to stifle my laughter (didn’t bother hiding the grin) before I handed the phone to the customer. No apology from the customer and I’m sure there were no apologies to the poor cashier to had to deal with him.
48. Watch where you’re going
Years ago, my mom and I were lost in an unfamiliar town, trying to find the gym my volleyball tournament was at. We pulled over on the shoulder for a second to get our bearings and agree on a direction to head in, not realizing we’d partially pulled into a bike lane.
Alright, our bad. Well, before my mother could even shift the car into park/reverse/whatever, a woman on a bicycle smacked her knuckles on the passenger window really sharply and yelled “This is a bike lane, idiot!” at my mom.
While she had her head turned backward to sneer at my poor mother, she drove her bicycle straight into a huge telephone pole and completely wiped out. Flew over the handlebars, splayed like a bearskin rug across the pavement. Real slapstick looking stuff. She got up sheepishly as my mother and I drove away, literally crying from laughing so hard.
Our neighbors share a house with us and are always making a racket. Every weekend they let their kids stomp around the house and play wall ball against the walls separating our apartments. Tonight we hear the abusive boyfriend screaming about how he can’t get a job because no one wants to hire a registered sex offender.
We naturally call the police and notify the real state agency to let them know about the noise complaint/possible sex offender living with children. The real estate agent messages us back informing us that they haven’t paid their rent and that they’ve been asked to leave. I felt really bad for the kids being stuck in that situation, but the parents from hell were gone.
50. Sore eyes
Was serving tables in high school at a high volume chain restaurant. One of those families that doesn’t give a s*** was sitting at my table. The kids were screaming, running around and being s*** heads. I politely suggested that the children running around was dangerous to the servers carrying heavy trays, other patrons, and the kids themselves. Parents gave zero f***s.
One of the kids was banging a bottle of tabasco sauce against the table. Again, the parents didn’t give a s***. All of a sudden the banging stops, and the brat starts crying – full volume. The cap came off and squirted fiery karma sauce right into his eyes. The mom flips out and rushes the kid to the bathroom. I laughed without trying to conceal my “told you so” smirk and don’t recall getting tipped. Worth it.
51. The book thief
I worked at a bookstore and opened the store one morning. For some reason I couldn’t get one of the two double doors to unlock, so I left it for a moment and planned to unlock it later. I forgot. Fast forward a few hours. There’s someone in our store who just hid something in his jacket, and the undercover store security tries to confront the thief.
The thief decides to bolt for the doors, and the security guy chases after him. From where I was standing, I could see the whole thing and it was like it unfolded in slow motion… The thief ran straight at the locked door with his arms out to push it, and slammed into it.
His arms buckled between him and the door, and his face gave an audible thunk when it his the wood. […] We called the cops and an ambulance. Wouldn’t be surprised if the thief had a broken nose and a concussion.
52. Reckless drivers
I drive a fairly modded car so naturally I attract punks that want to race. Well one rainy night I was driving home when some a******e and his f***boi friend decided to mess with me. Every traffic light they’d rev their engine, honk, flash their lights, stick their hands out, etc. They were doing everything they could to bait me.
After 3 lights they gave up and took off, the next traffic light was at the bottom of a hill and it turned red as they were about halfway down. With the slick conditions and their excessive speed they couldn’t stop so they ended up skidding onto the oncoming lane, jumped a curb, and crashed into a building. Words cannot express how happy I was as I passed by revving my engine, honking, flashing my lights, and waving.
53. Serves him right
I was once attacked by a bully after school. He quickly ended up on top of me and my arms were pinned between his legs to top it off. He swung at my face over and over, each time I moved my head and he punched the concrete. He never hit me once and he broke his hand, and he just kept getting more and more angry. I was terrified but it was also great.
54. Pulled over
Reminds me of this time I was driving down Superior in East Cleveland, and a woman flies by me on the left almost clipping my side view mirror, runs a red light at around 50 mph in a 35 mph zone, and almost takes out a cop making a left onto our current street. Needless to say she was immediately pulled over. I laughed for days about that. Makes me wish I bought a dashcam.
55. Success is the best revenge
Kids in high school made fun of me religiously, made a f***ing Burn Book about me and formed a committee in student council whose sole purpose was to keep me from being recognized for whatever success I achieved academically.
So I graduated valedictorian with a 5.2 and got into my dream school in New York City with a near full ride. You could call it karma, or you could call it me working my a** off, but either way it felt pretty f***ing good.
56. You get what you get and you don’t get upset
Once, when I was a kid, my mom asked me what I wanted to eat and I said instant noodles and she made it. However, I got upset at her because she added the salt packet while it was boiling. I got all worked up about how she ruined my dinner. I turn around with my bowl too quickly and most of my noodles spilled over on the floor. That was the last pack of noodles we had.
57. How the mighty fall
Last Halloween I was out with a few friends when a dwarf dressed as an Oompa Loompa asked my friend to borrow a lighter. It being a Zippo he asked for him to return it afterwards. The guy drunkenly stumbled off after lighting his cigarette and we realised he never returned it. It was no big deal so we didn’t chase him down.
Later in the night he was asked for it back politely and out of nowhere he flew into a rage that we were accusing him of stealing (you could actually see the lighter in his dungarees) he then picked up and threw a glass at us which barely missed a girl’s face, turned around and fell instantly with what I can only call a rolling comedic grace down an entire flight of stairs and face planting perfectly at the bottom.
58. A rough part of town
I was walking through a sketchy city neighborhood with my wife an hour after sunset, and as we stood on a street corner, a man on a bike rode by across the street. Six teenagers were on the corner across the street, and one of them tackled the man off of the bike, and they swarmed on him to get his wallet, phone, etc.
It was awful. Before they could even complete the task at hand, two parked cars roared to life from both sides of the intersection, and police officers sprang from the cars as well, immediately rounding up four of the assailants. A second later, one of the cars took off after the one guy who got away with the bike.
The guy who was getting robbed was left sitting on the sidewalk simply stunned by everything that was happening. We’ve never walked through that neighborhood after dark since. The craziest thing about that is that we weren’t even the people getting robbed.
59. Patience is a virtue
I was a pedestrian; I saw this unfold on the street beside me. A car had stopped at the red light. A second car pulled up behind, the driver obviously in distress, eager to get moving. The light changed to green and the front car didn’t move. The driver of the second car started yelling for them to move. The front car didn’t move.
Instead the doors opened and the driver and passenger both got out. I thought they were going to confront the second driver, but they just walked to the back of their car to look. The second car had inched up so far, he had actually locked bumpers with the first car so they couldn’t move. His own impatience had locked him in place.
60. Free money
People working in retail might appreciate this. I was working at a liquor store and this lady was incredibly rude. Just unbelievably b****y for no reason. Anyway she tries to pay with a prepaid visa gift card and it got rejected for insufficient funds.
She got even more p***ed, paid with something else, and told me to throw out the card. I called the number on the back, found out there was 20 bucks left on it, and got 20 bucks out of it. Not hardly enough to buy liquor, but there’s more you can buy than drink.
61. Bad attitude
So I used to work at this restaurant and did to-go orders. These girls called ahead and ordered 15-30 wings (5-10 for each of them) and they wanted them extra crispy and wet. I told them it would be ready in about 20-25 minutes. They took their sweet time getting there and when they did, they had an attitude just from walking through the door (which wasn’t surprising bc I could hear this same attitude as they ordered in their call).
I bring them their order and they check it and, of course, they aren’t crispy and not wet enough. Sure, they may have needed to be respun, but they were definitely cooked crispy (until they waited forever to get there and the sauce softened them). So they want completely new wings, about another 20 mins.
When done they complained they needed to be wetter. So, as they’re leaving one of the girls say, “Oh my God, is that your car?!” – they had parked in the lot right next to ours and had been towed. Had they not been so rude and timely, karma wouldn’t have been such a b**** to them.
62. Duly punished
I went to school in a very cold part of the country with a very old heating system. There was an a*****e who would p*** inside the radiator in the dead of winter, filling the entire building with a pungent cloud of nastiness that would last for days. During his fourth attempt at his dastardly deed he was caught with his pants down by an older female teacher.
Immediately she starts shrieking like a stuck pig – which prompted the entire school and staff to rush into the central hallway to see what was up. Wouldn’t you know that within seconds over 300 students and staff are confronted with the sight of a granny teacher dragging the culprit down the hallway by his hair, with him crying uncontrollably and tripping every other step because his pants and underwear were down to his ankles.
Two buddies of mine and I are walking off to lunch in high school. Open campus, central Oklahoma, it’d just rained that morning. So one of my friends catches a curb while he’s walking and falls into a huge puddle. This soaks him all the way through. The other literally throws his head back laughing and a bird s**** directly into his mouth.
64. All over a ruler
When I was in 6th grade I loved GoldenEye (N64) and I would draw some of the weapons and stuff in my computer class after I was finished with my assignments (I know I know). So one day the school super attendent was doing a sweep and I was searched.
They found a metal ruler that my dad gave me, which he’s had since he was young, and the GoldenEye drawings. So next thing I know it, he harassed me and embrassed me, took my ruler, in front of everyone. I was so angry I was crying. So the next day I went to ask for my ruler, he wasn’t in his office.
I asked his assistant and she said a family member suddenly passed away so he wasn’t gonna be back for a while… I don’t know if that qualifies as “karma” but I did feel a bit better. I know that’s f***ed up to say but that guy was a f***ing a***hole. He was fired later on I believe because of complaints about him harassing kids or something.
65. Learnt his lesson
I went to a party with two other friends of mine and one of them (we’ll call him Andrew) drank a little bit too much. We were out in the backyard having a smoke when Andrew spots a pesticide container. For some stupid reason Andrew thinks it would be funny to pick up the hose and start spraying it at my other buddy (who we’ll call Ethan).
Some of the chemical gets all over Ethan’s pants and left bright white spots all over his pants. Ethan see’s this and freaks out, causing Andrew to laugh and as he’s laughing he brings up the hose in an upwards direction and some of the chemicals came out and sprayed him directly in the eye.
Everything from that point happened in slow motion. Andrew screams and drops the hose. Runs into the house looking to wash his eye out. Ethan was already super mad about Andrew bleaching his pants and started laughing while I ran inside to see if I needed to call 911. Thankfully it wasn’t as bad as I thought and there was minor redness in his eye and his vision came back to him within 5 minutes.
66. Firm words
I was crossing the street at a pedestrian crosswalk. There’s a sign in the walk that says drivers have to stop for people crossing. The first car stops, and the one immediately behind them swerves around to get past, nearly running me over just to get to the next light, which was red.
It was really scary, and I couldn’t believe how out of line the second driver was. The driver from the first car gets out of his vehicle, huge dude with tattoos on his shaved head, and proceeds to walk up to the second car’s driver window and starts verbally chewing the s*** out of them for being a s****y driver. The second driver looked absolutely terrified, and was probably scared out of driving like a moron the rest of the day.
67. Hockey trouble
I was helping run a program to teach kids to play hockey, and as the kids were getting off the ice and we were putting stuff away, this one kid started to jump on the back of the hockey nets, as we were trying to put them away. Now 70 pounds extra isn’t a big deal more, but it was still annoying, and he was old enough to know better.
After asking him to get off, he does but then starts shooting pucks all over the ice as we were trying to get them together. Finally after asking again, he goes to get off the ice and held his stick horizontally. He basically got clotheslined by his own stick and almost took his own head off. It was amazing, and he looked so sheepish after.
68. Tell the truth
My favorite one happened to me in high school. Girl told me she liked me and asked if we could go out for a date. I said yes. Once the dust had settled after the initial question, I realized that I didn’t want to go out with her and wanted to go out with someone else.
Instead of being smart about just rejecting her, I made up an excuse that I had a lot of training for nationals and couldn’t date her. I almost immediately asked the girl I liked out and she said yes. A day later, she said she couldn’t because of training for a recital.
Almost immediately after, she began going out with a different guy. Karma is sometimes a very cruel but fair person. Taught me it’s better to tell the truth and hurt the person than to lie and have it bite you in the a** as well hurting them. I was so lonely.
69. Queue jumpers
I was at an amusement park in an incredibly long line for a new ride. These two girls were climbing through the line dividers, trying to get to their friends who were saving their space. While climbing through another divider, one of the girls dropped her iPhone and the screen shattered. They also never even found their friends and people eventually stopped letting them through. It was a good day.
Classmate said he wouldn’t give anyone a ride home from a party – even though we rode with him. He was afraid we would get it dirty when we were drunk. It was a convertible LeBaron. About 3 hours into the party I see him leaning over the side of the car. The top was down, and he puked all over the inside of the car. He must have spent hours the next day, completely hungover, cleaning it.
71. A great teacher
In middle school there was this girl who loved to torment me, along with her friend group. During recess one day, I was really enjoying myself on the swings when she and her friends come up to me and try to basically intimidate me to get off the swing so that they could all take over.
They start out by just calling me names and talking s*** to get me to get off. I ignore them and keep swinging higher and higher. Seeing that verbal abuse wasn’t working, the lead girl decides to start trying to grab the swing chains to try to stop me or knock me out.
But since I was too high for her to reach, she resorted to throwing mulch and dirt at me from behind. At one point she reaches down to get a pile of mulch just as I am swinging backward and my feet knock her backwards square in the face. The sound of it was amazing.
She isn’t hurt, but she starts crying and carrying on. When she goes to tell on me, the teacher straight up just says to her, “I saw what was going on the whole time.” I didn’t get in trouble and I got to keep my swing in peace for the remainder of recess.
72. Good Samaritans
Walking home going school one day and a guy who was a few years younger was being verbally abusive to some kid who was walking home on his own so myself and the two guys I was walking back with caught up and pretended to be friends with the kid (pretty sure our acting was terrible).
But the bully kept being abusive so we decided to scare him a little and all run at him to get him to f*** off and leave all of us alone, we hadn’t even moved 5 metres and the guy was trying to leg it but he instantly slipped on the muddy grass and got up sheepishly, kept his mouth shut and walked off.
We walked with the kid who was being bullied for a bit and told him that if he gets and trouble with the guy again to find one of us and walk with us or if he wanted we’d happily back him up if he wanted to get the school to “sort it out.” The guy never picked on the kid for the remainder of time myself and my friends were at the school.
73. Up in flames
I was living in a unit that had only had on-street parking, one night as I was parking my car, I noticed a young guy crouching down by the fuel tank of the car parked behind me with a gerry can. I asked him what he was doing (which I am pretty sure was siphoning fuel) and he told me very aggressively to f*** off. It was pretty scary.
As I started to walk away I heard a “woosh” sound and saw a small flash of fire, turns out he had used a lighter to see what he was doing and burnt his eyebrows off in the process. I called the cops and they thought the whole thing was hilarious. The guy not only got in trouble for stealing fuel but he also had some gnarly bruises on his face.
74. Behind bars
I was with this guy for a short while, but he turned out to be verbally abusive – he would make me cry and I felt absolutely horrible about myself the entire time I was with him. I managed to break up with him, but I never got the closure I wanted. But then last week I found out he has been arrested for something and will be serving years in prison.
75. Wasn’t worth it
When I was a kid, I leaned my scooter on the curb to go inside and get a popsicle. I came back outside just in time to see a 16 or 17 year old driver swerve towards the curb to purposely squash my scooter. He managed to hit it at just the right angle so that it bent, swung around, and slammed into the door of his new Lexus, denting metal and scratching the shiny silver paint. I hope he felt guilty afterwards.
76. Why you should mind your own business
I worked at a family owned business. After being there about 6 months their shop manager and I started dating. We weren’t open about it and kept it to ourselves and out of the workplace. The best friend of the boss’ wife who also worked there saw us out together and caused a s*** storm for me at work.
The owner, his wife and the best friend all became openly hostile to me since I was the outsider and ultimately I left because of it. 3 months after I left the boss’ wife found out her husband and her bestie were doing the bump uglies and the bestie was pregnant.
Wife gets escorted out of the company, bestie has the baby, bad hubby loses interest in both and the bestie loses her job too. It’s been 12 years and for the past 10 I’ve been happily married to the shop manager. Weird how romance can bloom where other relationships fail.
77. The heckler
Went to a comedy club on my 19th birthday. There were two comedians and a host. One of the comedians was a newbie (probably his first time doing standup), but the host and headliner were relatively known in the area. Anyways, there’s one guy in the audience who clearly had too much to drink.
He heckled everyone. The host played along a bit and made fun of the guy. The newbie couldn’t handle it; his whole set was basically ruined. The headliner was fed up and told the staff at the club to escort him out. The heckler refused to move, so they just stopped serving him drinks.
But the guy continued to heckle the headliner. The comedian was getting visibly angry that the staff wasn’t doing anything about the guy. Eventually the staff tried to get him to leave. They tried for about five minutes. The heckler basically said “I paid to get into this show. Unless you’re a cop, I ain’t leaving”.
All of a sudden, this surly guy in the audience gets up, goes to the heckler, throws him to the ground, takes out a badge, and says “I’m a cop”. He escorted the heckler out and got a standing ovation when he returned. That guy basically saved all our evenings combined.
78. Never lie
Once upon a time in high school, this kid got bored and decided to tell the whole school I was going to pull a Columbine. Which was a total lie. My life was ruined; house was raided, had to drop out, lost most of my friends, became the town pariah. It was the worst thing that had ever happened to me, and it took a long time for me to recover from it.
Fast forward five years to now. I am now living over an hour away, married, finally in college, and working. I don’t have much but I’m pretty f***ing happy. But the b*****d who started the Columbine bulls*** is now in prison for attempting to run over a cop in Florida while helping three teenage girls run away from home.
79. A hairy situation
I absolutely hate my sister-in-law. We worked together at a café in a shopping centre (that’s how I met my fiancé). I used to go to the hairdressers’ across the café to get my hair done (blonde foils). She has never coloured or cut her hair, always in a long plait.
She used to go to the hairdressers to deliver their coffees and tell them to burn my hair and try to ruin it and say it was an accident. They used to tell me when I went there and we would all laugh about it and talk about how crazy she is and feel sorry for me if my relationship ever lasted.
Her and her husband were going overseas to visit her parents in Eastern Europe and she decided she’s going to get foils too. She went to the same hairdressers’ and they put the foils on her hair.
Having virgin hair she had never come in contact with hair dye and she had a massive reaction to the dye and was rushed to the hospital because her face was swollen and burning up. My fiancé told me all about it and it never fails to make me smile. Everytime someone mentions karma I tell my experience with it.
80. Messed with the wrong guy
When I was in school, a bully kept f***ing with my PC so I told the teacher. On the way out, I was walking down some stairs and he threw a punch at the back of my head, I didn’t know and turned to go down the next set of stairs. His punch missed and hit this other guy who was known for not taking anyone’s s***. Bully ended up with his a** kicked.
81. If he can’t drink it, no one can
After a hot a** day me and my younger brother run to the fridge in which he claims the last glass of Pepsi out of a 2 litre bottle. I ask him to split it with me so he spits in it and extends his arm offering it to me. So I take it and spit in it too. He had no idea that the reversal was coming, and didn’t know whether to be upset or grudgingly respect me.
82. Have a nice trip
A friend of mine used to drop banana peels on the floor because she always thought it would be funny to see someone slip on a banana peel like in the cartoons. She never saw anyone slip on them but she kept trying. One day she was carrying a bunch of books to her class when she slips and drops everything on her. What did she slip on? A banana peel, of course.
83. A failed dine and dash
I’m a waitress and someone walked out on their $80 tab. We were cleaning the booth. And found that they left their cell phone. Sweet karma when they had to come back and ask for it and instead we handed her the bill she walked out on. She went from pleased and grateful to upset and embarrassed in a matter of seconds.
84. No such thing as a free lunch
At the local food festival some drunken guys are trying to get some free samples of some sausages. Effing and blinding whilst I have my son with me, they’re being totally obnoxious muppets at what is a friendly, community, family event. They’re complaining that they can’t get to the free stuff because people are in the way and there’s a queue and they have to wait whilst people buy stuff.
When I step aside, one of them steps forward quickly, impatient to get his grubby mitts on some free food. In stepping forward quickly, he steps headfirst into a massive metal clip holding up the stall, cutting his forehead. It looks incredibly painful and that assessment is confirmed by him reeling backwards and going “f***, me head, f***, f***, f***, me head”.
85. Karma for toddlers
I was at a playground with my little guy a few weeks back and this one, relatively older, boy plows into a smaller kid on purpose with no parental discipline afterward. So naturally I’ve got my eye on this kid making sure he doesn’t do the same to my 14 mo. old.
No more than five minutes thereafter this mini-jerk falls on a mini balance beam landing right on his junk and loses it. Now the parents show up. Sorry bud, karma even for toddlers.
86. Lying gets you nowhere
A few years ago I had a job. My boss loved me because I get work done but my manager constantly plotted to get me fired. The manager set me up with another employee just to claim I made sexually harassing comments. I got terminated even though my boss believed me because there was nothing he could do. It was heartbroken.
2 years later, Boss reaches out to tell me that Former Manager and that employee were having an affair and he loses his job, wife divorces him and takes the house/car/kids. He had to take a major step down and worked at a Mailbox Etc last I heard. Just doing his Bossly duty and keeping me informed. Apologized again for having to terminate me.
87. Everything happens for a reason
Not sure if this quite qualifies but it’s definitely one for “everything happens for a reason” bull**** I don’t normally believe: my dad once went for a job within his company and didn’t get it. Was really cut up about it. The job would have been in a different office, 6 months later they closed that branch and made everyone redundant. Dad still has his job.
88. Standing tall
I saw this tall kid who was making fun of a short kid (for being short) while on a basketball court. The tall kid then preceded to do a terrible layup where the ball hit the underside of the net bounced back hit the tall kid in the face and gave him a nose bleed. The short kid did a really good job at not bursting into laughter, but he looked pleased.
89. It pays to be patient
I’m sitting at an intersection and the light turns green. Ten seconds later the guy in front of me still hasn’t moved so I honked at him. He takes off, I put it in first and my car dies on the spot. Boom, karma’d. Cranks for a good five minutes but won’t turn, and when it finally does turn over its jumpy shifting gears. The old b**** threw the distributor. Thankfully I’m in mechanic school and it was an easy fix. But yeah.
90. Play nicely
Played zorb football yesterday for a friend’s birthday. Knocked my mate over and proceeded to ram him every time he tried to get up whilst laughing like a maniac. He finds me on the floor a minute later and does the same to me, I then try and kick his legs out from under him and break my foot on his ankle. It was the most pain I can ever remember being in.
91. The litterbug
I was walking behind some guy on a bridge who was drinking his coffee. When he finished his coffee he tried to throw it off the bridge. A gust of wind came and blew the coffee cup back at his head. So much satisfaction as I watched all the coffee splash back into his face. Thankfully it was cold so he wasn’t hurt, just embarrassed.
92. Punishment fits the crime
Some kids crept into the front of the small shop my mother owns (and I help out at) to steal some of the raw eggs that were displayed on the counter. I walk into the front to see them running out, the last kid trips over the door frame and gets egg all over his clothes. The rest of his friends started laughing at him and ran off.
93. The snitch
In 4th grade, I was an insufferable, self-appointed Lord’s Prayer monitor. For some inexplicable reason, I had decided it was my job to make sure everyone closed their eyes as we recited the prayer. One fateful day, I raised my hand, and when the teacher called on me, I said indignantly, “Gilbert didn’t close his eyes during the prayer.” And my teacher responded with, “How do you know?”
94. Stopped in his tracks
My wife woke up to cycle to work. Got outside and her bike had been stolen (lots of tears). Reported to out building about did they see anyone on CCTV. “Actually yes. Watch this.” So we watched a video of a guy cycling into our communal garage on her bike following a car through the barriers, only for him to get hit squarely on his nose by the descending barrier, which he subsequently ripped off.
95. Justice is served
I was driving to school when I lived in Los Angeles years ago. I’ll never forget this because stuff like this NEVER happens and it was beautiful. A white van cut me off in traffic and I narrowly avoided a wreck, I was terrified. Immediately and satisfyingly, a cop came out of nowhere and pulled him over. He looked furious. So great.
96. Slipped up
In middle school we like to throw things at people, like little paper balls. Well, as soon as I got out of class, I saw my friend standing in the hallway. I run past him and throw a paper ball. For some reason there was liquid leaking from the fire extinguisher and that made me slip and bust my ass. Paper ball didn’t even hit him.
97. Don’t mess with dogs
My boyfriend and I were walking through a park, and he was loudly talking about how he thought a passing dog was ugly. The owner was definitely close enough to hear, so I nudge him, like hey what was rude. We keep walking and guess who steps in dog s***. I tried not to look too smug, but I definitely caught the eye of the dog walker.
98. That backfired
My friend’s ex-girlfriend tried to get him kicked out of school by sending an explicit picture of herself around school and blaming him for it in order to get him expelled. It might have worked if he had the picture on his phone, which he didn’t, and had they not tracked the first message back to her. In turn she got herself expelled.
99. Should have listened
My college dorm roommate refused to lock the door, ever. I asked him a couple times just to lock the door when he left since it only takes a second for someone to just walk in, grab something, then leave. He constantly asserted no one would rob us. A few weeks later he had his brand new iPod stolen. Nothing of mine was taken.
At a high school track meet, I witnessed a girl fall at the end of the 100m event. I laughed at her, because 17 year old me was a d*** and thought it was hilarious. I go to run the 1 mile, and during the last 100m I fell and sprained my ankle. I definitely deserved it. Worst of all: the girl I had laughed at was too nice to laugh at me back.
