    story - Text - kofiddleboy 1.7k points 16 hours ago A guy was following me down the highway as I left my college's parking lot (night class) and he kept honking, flashing his brights, and tailgating me so I gave him the finger about 4 separate ways. He pulled up next to me and I even mimed looking around inside my bag for something before pulling out a middle finger. I opened the glove box and pulled out a middle finger. I went all out. Guess who's headlights weren't on.

    story - Text - YoureMakingItWeird 1.0k points 21 hours ago Girlfriend bought candy for trick-or-treaters two weeks before Halloween. Over the next two weeks I ate almost all of the candy. We had to give out Asian candy with flavors most kids around here wouldn't have heard of, like purple yam, calamansi, and tamarind

    story - Text - Wynteral 269 points 16 hours ago Had a coworker come in with a really amateur and shitty attempt at a Mohawk, and we'd been really close before so I just straight up said my mind, "Dude, your hair looks like shit." Turns out he had gone to 3 barbers because it just kept getting worse and worse and he genuinely got upset and the next day he just shaved his entire head. Sorry Duke.

    story - Text - salt-momster 111 points 16 hours ago edited 15 hours ago Years ago I was left as acting general manager on New Year's Day at the restaurant I was working at. Customers were high maintenance and pissy. Employees were bitter to be working and less than productive After telling the kitchen to turn down their music, stop horsing around, and cussing loud enough for everyone in the dining room to hear for the 100th time

    story - Text - 18 hours ago 2 Korrin85 4.9k points So when I was a neckbeard loser, I tried asking out this girl. She was hot but she was also in a wheelchair. I remember thinking how awesome it would be asking her out, since I figured not too many dudes would put up with a woman in a wheelchair

    story - Text - TOMSDOTTIR 20.6k points 20 hours ago So, I was driving my car into a roundabout, doing nothing wrong, not cutting up any other drivers, driving at a safe, slow speed, and suddenly HONK!!!! from another driver. I look up and there is a taxi about to join the roundabout and the driver staring straight at me. FFS, I think, these guys think they own the road. Now you're not even allowed to enter the roundabout when they want to. In my own defence

    story - Text - ChickaBok 11.1k points 19 hours ago I teach middle school, so I end up having to play the villain a lot. But one time stands out where I actually WAS the bad guy: Last block of the day, we're working through something that is not terribly interesting. I hear a few whispers and giggles and my teacher sense goes off. Out of the corner of my eye I see that a note is being passed around the class and that's what's causing the distraction.

    story - Text - Oba78683-dbdd-4a31-a 8.1k points 21 hours ago After being a bit of a tear-away and trying to get my shit together in school I told off a kid for wearing a hat that the school uniform didn't allow. I later learnt he was wearing the hat because he'd lost his hair to chemo. Did not feel good.

    story - Text - hatorade2018 7.1k points 21 hours ago Some bastards kept pulling into my driveway to turn their around and ripping up a huge chunk of my grass in the process. One day it's raining really hard and I back out of my driveway as usual, but I have to get out of my car to move the trash can. That's when I see my front wheel freshly covered in chunks of grass and mud, along with a huge tire track going straight from the torn grass in my yard to my front wheel

    story - Text - Stuntedatpuberty 3.7k points 20 hours ago I was in Tijuana drinking it up and this was in the 90s. I left a bar and when I made it outside, I realized that I left my wallet on the table. I went back in and saw that different people were there and no wallet. I asked them if they found a wallet and all said no. I got more aggressive with them and started to threaten them if they didn't return the wallet

    story - Text - Judah77 3.5k points 19 hours ago I was out of town and I went into a frozen yogurt place I'd never seen before with so many flavors. I kept asking for sample cups until I'd tried like 20 of them and was only halfway. It was amazingly fun! I heard a parent giving a lecture to their kids who wanted to copy me about 'how we don't act like that man and buy ours That just ruined it for me, so I dropped a $10 in their tip jar and left
