We all have a Bob in our lives... you know, that coworker who thinks they're the boss of you? The one who actively lurks waiting for you to mess up or to give you unsolicited feedback or advice. Yup, Bobs are everything and there's truly nothing stopping them. That is unless you stand up to them or engage in some well-deserved malicious compliance.   That's what this Redditor did. They posted their story via this thread on Reddit's r/MaliciousCompliance subreddit, and let's just say that Bob's meddling was beyond ridiculous. This whole story serves as a great blueprint for what to absolu ..read more

What are you to do when you purchase something only to have the terms of sale retroactively changed by a governing association?

Well, lawyer up and hit them with a strongly worded email letting them know just angry you are.  After a three-year hiatus, this landowner returned to share the grippingly realistic tale of how they managed to defeat a land developer and HOA who had changed the terms of sale after they had purchased their lot.

Bad landlords, careless delivery drivers, and wrong labels on food — these are just a smattering of random things that got on people's last nerve this week.  R/Mildlyinfuriating is constantly updated with irritations big and small, submitted by folks around the world. Several people have posted receipts with mysterious new charges. One had an 'economic recovery fee,' which is bold way of begging for coins, I suppose. One person shared a pan that was never washed between meals, which surely started drama in the comments section. I actually just want to talk to the person who wanted their ..read more

‘Your generation is so out-of-touch with what the going rate is for everything’: Grown millennial gives her boomer mom a piece of her mind after hearing her complain about how “nobody wants to work anymore”

There is no arguing that the work culture that the boomers got started in is completely different than what it is now. Millennials and even older Gen Z are not happy with the mess the baby boomers have left us. We are exploited, abused, and simply put, not paid even remotely enough. After rent, groceries, gas, and other living necessary bills and expenses, we hardly have anything left of our salary. Lucky for us, unlucky for boomers, millennials and Gen Z workers have woken up and are starting to refuse jobs that are stuck in page wages that maybe could've paid the rent in the '70s, but sure ..read more

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 exasperated coworker. This set off a chain of events that would lead to their dismissal from ..read more

'Who eats 7 slices and the rest of the breadsticks?': Woman erupts at sister-in-law for eating her pregnancy craving

There's an important lesson here: never mess with someone's pregnancy craving! This thread, which was posted to Reddit's r/AmITheA**hole subreddit by the appropriately named Redditor u/Pregnancy_craving66, just goes to show that this sister-in-law simply had no respect for this lady.   Reactions seemed to be surprisingly split in the comments section, which was a bit concerning. Sure, perhaps the Redditor didn't have to scream at her sister-in-law (though I'm sure that would have been a fun sight to behold), but honestly, she gets to do whatever she wants in this scenario. The only thing ..read more

We know the Utah community is pretty tight knit, but we didn't know they were THIS close. Marcela Hill, an American content creator recently revealed a confession that she has been hiding for decades– she accidentally married her third cousin. For most people, that would be a pretty haunting and creepy fact to admit to your immediate family and close friends, but Marcela shared this intimate detail about her life to over 3 million followers on TikTok. She even jauntily added in her video,  "when I go to my family reunion, he gets to go to his too". Oof ..read more

'Get a better job': Terrible mother borrows car from son and shames him when he wants to drive it to work

The support of your parents can be extremely determinant of your own success—the trade-off being that their support in raising you out of diapers will be repaid when they return to them. It's a fair trade—when the parents uphold their end of the deal and aren't depraved and selfish narcissists—or otherwise toxic and destructive to be around. Now, we're all complicated people, and none of us are without our flaws, but some people are better off far away… and out of your life. Take this delightful individual who turned the generous act of receiving a car to borrow from her child into a way of s ..read more

One former HOA president had had enough of the group's threats and random rules — so they tore the organization to the ground. In a dramatic story spanning decades, one person did the legal heavy lifting to demolish this HOA. I have never seen someone bring an organization to their knees quite like this guy did… I actually don't know how they could ever come back from it.  After being an HOA president and being involved in the organization over quite a while, the OP shared that they switched to a voluntary HOA after moving houses. At this new residence, the OP thought they could escape s ..read more
