Sometimes you do something and you really regret it.
Not these 18 people! They do not regret a thing, and it’s wonderful to read. Because when you’re truly wronged, you deserve a little retribution.
Or if you want a plum… go get the plum!
Slowing down when someone is tailing me.
I only do this in the slow lane, I typically move if I’m in the fast lane.
2. This aunt needs to get her priorities straight!
My aunt was about to get married to this one rich scumbag who apparently treated her “right”. My brother and I did some investigating over the fact that he had lots and I mean LOTS of female friends.
A lot of sht went on, but in the end, we found out that he was a sleeping with and is a sugardaddy to some of of them. It was just three days before the actual wedding that we found out.
Told our aunt about it, wedding was cancelled, aunt was upset with us as well for some reason, and we regret nothing.
3. The right thing to do!
Sneaking pictures of my aunt into her fathers funeral slideshow behind her sisters back.
The two never got along and one sister was in charge of the funeral. She was adamant about leaving out any photo with her sister in it. My aunt (the victim in this case) was very close with her father. So I lied to my other aunt that the slideshow was done and I downloaded a secret folder of pictures onto the slideshow. She’s so bad with technology that she didn’t notice.
My other aunt gave me a teary hug after the funeral and thanked me, she knew I had been the one to slip them in. She died last month of a sudden aneurism. I’d do it again, even if my other aunt never talked to me again. I sure miss her.
4. Be kind to yourself!
I’m not sorry for focusing on me and my needs. I used to be so concerned with taking care of all my friends and family to the point that I was I was sacrificing my needs for a lot of people who would not do the same for me. I’ve learned to cut toxic people out of my life and focus on my true close friends and family rather than trying to care for everyone.
Being liked by everyone used to be so important to me and honestly it’s so exhausting. I’m not sorry if people don’t like me anymore. It’s impossible to make everyone happy.
As long as you’re not being a complete asshole, you need to take your needs into consideration as well.
5. Time to grow up kid!
I love my daughter to death, but at 25, I had to cut her off financially.
I support everything she is passionate about, but if your passion is working for non-profits and wilderness retreats, maybe you should adjust your lifestyle so you can afford your bills.
6. Bully… watch your back…
In Elementary School, a kid named Patrick was my bully and he’d do shit like “accidentally” bump into me and spill my lunch and step on the backs of my shoes.
So one day, he was coming out of the cafeteria and I stuck my leg out and watched him trip face forward into the ground. We both got sent to the Principal’s Office, and he got whatever the Elementary School version of an In-School Suspension was for his repetitive bullying while I got a slap on the wrist.
Absolutely not sorry.
7. Completely fair!
Eating the snacks that my wife has forgotten about.
8. Facebook is not real life, people!
Quitting FB and having people complain that they don’t know what I’m up to. Fucking ask me!
9. Oh, this is a really good idea…
Cutting out my dad’s side of the family from my life.
They made my life a living hell while I was growing up. I was the youngest of the cousins so I would regularly get beat up or locked in rooms (my dad worked nights). They would smash furniture and TVs then blame me. As a young adult all they did was cause more drama by still break things in my dad’s apartment, or try to start physical fights. I’ve had so many fist fights with my cousin from defending my property to protecting my cat (no one messes with my kitty).
Once I moved out of my dad’s I cut all contact with them. I maybe see them once a year when my dad tricks me into seeing them (he has the mentality of always forgive family).
They know nothing of my adult life and I know nothing of theirs and I’m going to keep it that way.
10. Charities shouldn’t pressure like this…
I refused to give money to charity. Okay, but hear me out on this.
There was a lady who was claiming to represent a charity, but acted really shady. This was at a concert in a cafe/bar. She had a clipboard and was approaching people by saying “I’m taking donations for (whatever charity). Just write down whether you’re giving $5, $10, or $20.”
She didn’t ask if you’d donate, just told you to choose how much you were giving her.
I told her I prefer giving to charities I’ve researched, because some of them only spend a low percentage of donation money on the cause (Susan B. Komen ಠ_ಠ ). The lady got angry and raised her voice at me. She tried shaming and bullying me into giving her money, and we seriously fought about it.
Eventually she turned to my friend and started pressuring him lol. He said “Yeah uh…like my friend said…” and she stormed off. You have to trust me, there was something off about her. Plus, she waited until people were buzzed at a concert before approaching to tell them to give her money.
11. Fire in the hole!
Laughing at my friend in high school who stuffed her bra with tissue and then dropped a cigarette down her cleavage and she thought the tissue was going to catch on fire and dumped a beer on herself. I refused to stuff my bra and she said I was chicken, this was her karma. I felt bad when her parents smelled the beer and grounded her for drinking though.
Leaving my abusive ex.
13. Hey, it’s your wedding!
Not inviting my needy aunt to go wedding dress shopping with me. She’s begged me already and has been dropping hints for months, but I’m not budging.
This is the one time in my life that something really is only about me, and I’m not going to deal with her drama that day.
14. RIP Fido *sniff*
Creating a small “pet cemetery” in our parents’ back yard, despite my father forbidding it.
It felt like the right thing to do – no regrets.
Eating the plums from the icebox.
They were delicious.
So sweet, and so cold.
16. Tips ARE NOT mandatory…
I’m normally a big tipper as I worked in the industry a long time but last week I left zero tip for my server that did a horrible job.
17. Don’t be a dick to the customers, please!
When we were in high school, my friends and I would always go to the same diner.
About 85% of the time we’d get sat with this awful woman who’d treat us like shit. She’d smile and be polite with grown ups, but the smile would disappear the second she got to us. She’d leave our food on the counter for 5-10 minutes while she talked to other tables, never refill a single drink, and roll her eyes if you asked for anything.
The first few times I just figured she wasn’t trying because she thought teenagers would tip like shit, so I tipped her really well. But the shitty service continued, and eventually I just tipped her $0.
Only time I’ve ever done that, but she really earned that $0.
18. Sometimes, this is necessary.
Telling the parents of a special needs child (think similar to Down’s Syndrome) that their daughter was struggling a lot with normal schooling (even with her IEP and own lesson plans) and she would be better off in a special needs school sooner rather than later.
They said to be honest with them and I was.
Sorry, not sorry!
