#1 Threatening Revenge with Homemade Content
“Guy in a Facebook group commented that he had tons of home made p***, and if his girlfriend left him, he’d leak it because “then no guy would want her”.”
In the age of social media, people often let their anger loose online, but one individual took it to an extreme. The level of toxicity in this guy’s behavior is off the charts, and it left everyone wondering about the sanity of the person making such a chilling threat.
#2 The High-Speed G*n Show
“In college I used to kill time between classes hanging out with a guy who was from the same redneck county as myself… One day we decided to go somewhere off-campus, and he drove us. While driving, on an interstate, mind you, he proceeds to show me his handg** that he kept in his truck – not in a menacing way, but in a “Ain’t that cool?” way. I was not immediately frightened, but I respect firearms enough to recognize we are going like 60-70mph on an interstate in daylight, and nothing good can happen in this scenario.
I calmly asked him to put it away because I was not comfortable in this situation at all. He then tells me “Oh, it’s not loaded” and presses the gun to his head before pulling the trigger. Thank f*** he was right, but still, it was a wild and frightening display of reckless disregard for his own life and mine…I didn’t hang out with him much after that, certainly didn’t get in a car with him”.
#3 The Heartless Nursing Home Director
“When my dad was in the nursing home, they weren’t running certain expenses, like ambulance rides, through his insurance. When I took over his financials, he was tens of thousands in medical debt that shouldn’t have ever been charged to him in the first place. He was in numerous collections, and his credit score was tanked. When I complained to the nursing home director, he said, “Well, it’s not like he’s going to be buying a house or a car!” then laughed.
My dad was paralyzed from the waist down and needed lifelong care, so he was never going to leave the nursing home. Even though he was technically correct, I gave him the “WT* is wrong with you look.” Then I complained to HIS boss and he got canned a couple a weeks later. My dad’s insurance was fixed pretty quick, too”.
When dealing with a loved one’s health, you expect empathy and understanding. However, one nursing home director seemed to have no regard for a patient’s financial and emotional well-being.
#4 Lasagna, Love, and Misguided Advice
“MIL told my wife she should divorce me because I googled whether a lasagna should be covered with foil while cooking.”
Sometimes, it’s the simplest things that can trigger the most absurd responses. In this case, a mother-in-law recommended divorce because of a lasagna-related internet search. It’s a classic example of overreactions and a reminder that in the world of marriage, pasta preferences shouldn’t be a deal-breaker.
#5 Encouraging Workplace Anxiety
“Boss at old job told the team we needed to ‘get used to a healthy level of conflict, fear and anxiety in the workplace.’ I dipped so fast after that.”
A boss’s role is to inspire and motivate their team, not to spread fear and anxiety. This boss’s attitude towards workplace conflicts was a swift call to exit that workplace and find a less stressful environment.
#6 Workplace Misogyny and Insecurity
“While alone with a coworker, he told me that “women in the work place will lead to the decay of the fabric of society.” To Me; A woman. He also asked me out, got an attitude when I didn’t say yes and continues to walk around with huge incel energy. He always complains that he has no one to go home to, yet refuses to look at himself as a possible reason.”
Sometimes, the workplace can be the stage for both misogyny and insecurity. A coworker’s baffling comment about women in the workplace and his subsequent behavior left a woman in disbelief. His inability to self-reflect and grow showcased a troubling level of incel energy that no one should tolerate.
#7 A Heartless Mother’s Critique
“My mother screaming at me while I was laying in the hospital trying to recover from a stroke that I shouldn’t cut my hair cause I’d be ugly and boyish. Mind you I’m dealing with the worst event of my life, can’t even walk, let alone comb my hair which was waist length. This is something I’ll never forgive her for and a reason why we are at the lowest possible contact.”
In times of distress, you expect your family to provide comfort and support. However, this mother managed to deliver a heartless critique while her child was recovering from a stroke. Prioritizing hair appearance over their health and well-being is a prime example of misplaced priorities.
#8 A Nerdy Hobby Shop’s Betrayal
“Had a really unfortunate experience at a nerdy hobby shop where a friend and I were vibing with some of the people who work there and it was a definite “did we just become best friends?” moment – right up until some of the non-white customers milling about left the shop and the employees started in on some “phew, now we can all be racist together” s***. It was genuinely disappointing; it was so close to being our “home shop” but we never went back.”
Finding your perfect nerdy haven can be a joy, but it turned into a disappointment for one group. The staff’s sudden change in attitude when non-white customers left the shop, along with their “racist together” comments, was a shocking turn of events that left the poster reeling. Sometimes, even the most promising places can reveal their dark side.
#9 Disrespecting the Deceased
“A mutual friend/coworker had recently and suddenly died of cancer. A group of us were hanging out when one of my friends started talking s*** about the deceased. Really surface level stuff, like making fun of their hair. We were all sitting there in stunned silence like WT* are you talking about?.”
Respect for the deceased is a fundamental aspect of human decency. It’s difficult to comprehend the sheer lack of empathy or sensitivity that would lead someone to mock those who can no longer defend themselves. The deceased, in that moment, became more than a person; they became a symbol of how callous some individuals can be.
#10 Tattoo Copycat Madness
“My partner’s ex got the same tattoo as my partner, twice. The second one was very recently, long after they divorced. She literally went to get them after seeing that he did because she’s insane.”
Sometimes, ex-partners can exhibit the most bizarre behavior. In this case, one individual went to the extreme of getting the same tattoo as their ex, not once, but twice. It’s a story that showcases the lengths some people will go to in order to maintain a connection, even if it’s through ink.
