Breaking Bad: Good People Describe The Moments They Snapped

Nobody is perfect. Even people who might seem perfect always have a breaking point. A person can spend years and years as a goody-two-shoes only to one day get so annoyed by something that they act in ways no one would ever have believed they were capable of. Whether it’s standing up to a person who is tormenting you, taking revenge against someone, or merely just blowing their lid, there is no mistaking the sight of a good person reaching their breaking point. Here are 50 stories about moments when good people finally did something bad.

1. We All Need Somebody to Lean On

This is a simple one, but a good one. There was a kid who sat in front of me in a high school class. All year, he would lean back in his chair and would frequently lean his chair onto my desk. One day, I had had enough of his nonsense. I decided it was time to do something about it. So, once he leaned forward, I quietly moved my desk back a few inches.

After picking himself up off the floor, he never bounced his chair on my desk again for the rest of the year.

2. We Wish You a Pointy Christmas

My elderly mother-in-law made a little wreath to put on the door of her apartment. A couple of days later, some jerk completely destroyed it. She was really sad about it. We put it back together and fixed it. I added lots of pointy needles. I put it back on the door. The next day, she told me that she heard some swearing at 6:30 in the morning. It was one of her neighbors. I was so proud of myself.

3. Cheater-Cheater Pumpkin Eater

Someone once smashed the decorative pumpkin I had on my front porch for Halloween. I was so mad about it that, later that night, I let things get a bit out of hand. I found an old purse and took a poop in it. I then left it lying out on the same step where my pumpkin was, knowing that it would catch someone’s attention. I then hid in my room and watched out the window.

I don't know if it was the same kid that smashed my pumpkin who later tried to take the purse. But the happiness I took from that moment of a kid reaching his hand into the poop-filled purse while he was walking away to take the money more than made up for the anger of my smashed pumpkin.

4. Getting the Job Done

After two years of working somewhere on a temp contract and getting treated like garbage, I didn't get offered a permanent job. So, I called in sick on my last day, because I hated it there. I had only ever called in sick once before that, and only ever missed one day. When I called, they insisted that I still had to come to work that day, so I eventually just said “Okay, I'll come in.”

Well, if you think I cracked, you’re wrong. I never showed up. That day off felt really good.

5. We’re in the Money

I was a teen and once found $1,000 in an ATM. This was one of those ATMs that had a little tray where the money would drop into. This was in the early 90s. I don't think they just drop the money out anymore. Nowadays, the bills all retract back into the machine if you don't take them. But back when this happened, that technology didn't yet exist.

I went to the bank to return the money. I was sick of this bank. It’s a long boring story, but let’s just say this bank had not been very nice to me. I was an American ex-pat living in Singapore, so when I needed to set up my account, I had to repeatedly wait in lines, they never had enough tellers, and the people there were pretty darn rude. This bank sucked

After waiting for 15 minutes to try and return their money to them, with only one teller working and the line still 10 people deep, I said to myself, "Screw it, I came to return this money. I tried to be honest, but they are making it impossible for me." I left and bought a stereo for myself with the money. It was awesome.

6. Room Service

I didn’t get along too well with an old roommate of mine, because she had moved her boyfriend and dog into our apartment without my consent. She was generally very messy. The boyfriend didn’t pay rent and her dog was a liquid poop machine. Her dog ruined my couch and soaked it with pee and poop. I asked her to repay me for it and to have her boyfriend leave. Instead of repaying me, she stole a bunch of items that I kept in our common rooms to spite me.

So, I got my revenge. I snitched to my landlord and got her evicted. Oh, also? I peed in her shampoo bottle.

7. Heart and Sole

My ex's friend would always hit me and kick me and I couldn't hit her back. So, one day at a freshman dance, she hit me with the spike of her high heel. I immediately grabbed the shoe out of her hand and threw it to the far end of the cafeteria. She was in total shock as she had never seen me act that way before. Take that, Mikayla!

8. The Long and Winding Road

When I was a teen, I had a boyfriend. He was older, which back then I thought was cool. In reality, it was just creepy. I was super loyal to him, yet he gaslighted me constantly. He also manipulated and lied to me. We had mutual friends, and they sent me some pictures of him cheating with other girls at a party he lied about attending.

To get my revenge, I arranged a meet-up with him at my place. I pretended all was fine. He lived quite far away, so he traveled for several hours to meet me. As soon as he arrived at my doorstep, I curtly confronted him about his lies, broke up with him, and sent him on his long way back home. The discussion took less than five minutes in total.

I never treated anyone else like that before or since. It was glorious.

9. All Good Things Must Come to an End

I had a perfect attendance record from kindergarten all the way to senior year in high school, until a girl asked me to ditch one hour of class with her. Suffice it to say that cost me an award...

10. Hall Pass

These three dudes had been stalking me for like eight months. They always followed me around to my classes while making obnoxious and creepy comments. Every time I told them to stop following me and leave me alone, they'd just laugh and continue with their shenanigans. I ended up grabbing and throwing one of the dudes across the hallway, despite the fact that he probably had a good eight inches on me.

I did this in the middle of the science hall, in front of a ton of teachers and students. The vice-principal caught wind of whatever was going on and we all had to go in and have a talk with him in his office. The best part? The three of them ended up receiving an in-school suspension, while I got off completely scot-free. No regrets!

11. His Old Kentucky Home

When I was in middle school, this new kid named Kyle had just moved to our town and was already bugging everyone. He was from Kentucky and had gotten expelled from five schools. He was known for being really rude, especially to girls and women. He was always saying stuff like “women should be in the kitchen” and all that. But that wasn’t the worst part.

He would torment everyone. He thought he was the most important person in the world. The day after he arrived, he kept looking at my test for answers. He was literally crazy. He was whispering “I know you’re covering the answers. I’m just trying to torment you.” Anyway, after putting up with his nonsense for a while, I don’t know what he said but I finally snapped. 

I turned around and slapped him on the face in the middle of class. The whole thing is a bit of a blur, but I recall a lot of yelling and cussing. I said something along the lines of, “You’re an annoying piece of garbage. No one here cares about you. You’re a worthless annoying brat who should go back to your little farm in Kentucky.” He immediately shut his mouth, and I got suspended.

However, after I told my dad what had happened, he wasn’t mad. He was actually somewhat proud. He said he didn’t like my language and seemed pretty concerned, but said that he was glad I stood up for myself. Kinda mixed messages. At least I got that kid to shut up for the rest of the year and was known as the “cool kid” for a week.

12. Wake Up and Smell the Coffee

My sister is kind of evil. One day, she was really being horrible towards our mother. She was screaming and yelling and insulting her to the point of lunacy. Our mom began to tear up a bit, and I didn’t really like seeing that. Then, to make matters worse than they already were, my sister says to her, “Oh wow, you’re crying? That’s pathetic!”

I had a cup of coffee in my hand, and I instinctively poured it all over my sister’s head. Suddenly, I was the bad guy. I was fine with that because I don’t really care what someone says while they’re covered in coffee anyways. I’m glad that I stood up for my mom when she was being mistreated like that. I only have one regret: I wasted a good cup of coffee.

13. By My Calculation

I got bullied a lot in high school, particularly in my math class. I'm simply weak with numbers, so I was in the lowest capability class with mostly kids who just didn't want to try because it wasn't cool. Whenever we used calculators, our saint of a teacher would get a huge box of them out and we'd go up to the front and each grab one.

We were supposed to put them back at the end of class as we were leaving, but most of the kids just gave their calculators to me to put back as opposed to taking the three extra steps to do it themselves. One day, I had just finished doing my unofficial job as Keeper of Calculators and I'm grabbing my bag to leave.

This guy comes back in and says, "Forgot this, put it back!" as he hands me his calculator. No please. Not even five seconds of eye contact. Just the order and assumption. Something in me suddenly broke. I picked it up and heaved it at the guy’s head. It hit him in the chest. This was coupled with a firm and simple "No" in a raised voice.

I then realize what I've done and sheepishly turn towards my saint of a teacher. This man has watched this class torment me for a long time now. He watched me never respond to any of it. He let me sit in the back with headphones in as long as my work was getting done, so I could try and improve my grade in peace.

This angel of a teacher looks at me and, in one fluid motion, winks and tilts his head at the door telling me to get gone before the real trouble erupts. He knows I don't throw things at people ordinarily, and that I probably never would again. And I never did.

14. Life's a Beach

A few years ago, I took a day trip to the beach with a bunch of people. We got to the beach at 9 AM and stayed until 4. At this particular beach, there is a beach restaurant and bar that has a DJ and dance floor. As we were packing up, I noticed that the couple we drove up with was still at the bar. I asked my girlfriend to go get them and said I'd head to the car to start cooling it off, thinking it would be nice for everyone else to get into a cool car rather than a boiling one.

When they got to the car, the girl was drunk and being a jerk. For 15 minutes straight, she complained about how we had "ditched them" at the beach and how rude we were. She just went on and on while I was driving them home. Now, I'm a generally laid back person, but I couldn't believe how selfish and entitled she was being, and it was directed at me. I snapped.

I lost it on her and basically screamed that if I had ditched them at the beach, they would still be there and not in my car. I added that if she wanted to continue to be a jerk, then she and her boyfriend could get out and take an Uber home. She shut up immediately and didn’t say another word during the remainder of the drive.

Her boyfriend thanked me for the ride and apologized when I dropped them off. She apologized the next day as well. But this incident still gets brought up every now and then because it was so out of character for me to snap at someone like that.

15. He Should Have Just Been More Careful

In high school, my friends and I would hang out over by the bleachers of one of the baseball fields, pretty far from most of the other kids. We were sitting in a circle on the grass one afternoon, just talking, and some freshmen we didn't know started chasing each other around and almost kicked our stuff down a few times.

My friend said nicely, "Hey, can you please be careful?" One of the kids sneered at her and said "Why? Like your fat butt could catch me!" My friend was a bigger girl who was very sensitive about her weight. Before I could even process my own reaction, I immediately stood up and sucker-punched him in the side of the head.

He dropped like a sack of potatoes and started yelling. He ran over to his other friends, one of whom was apparently his older brother, trying to get them to come and beat me up. But the brother just shrugged and said "You were being a jerk, you deserved it." My friend was grateful for "defending her honor," and the kid I punched never bothered us again.

16. Sounds Like Someone’s Got Beef!

I was in the grocery store two weeks ago and did something bad. I go to a place with top quality beef, and I buy boneless ribeye steaks that cost $21.99 per pound on a regular basis. For some reason, on my last trip, I noticed that there were two packages, meaning four steaks total, that were accidentally marked as pork chops for only $6.99. I dropped them both in my cart and went on my way.

17. Reading Between the Lines

Seventh grade. I was sitting at my desk reading a book on my lousy little e-reader. The kid at the table behind me wouldn't leave me alone, mockingly going “I love you, why don't you love me, why are you ignoring me, why aren't you talking to me” interspersed with kissy noises. That day, I had absolutely had it with this kid.

So, I turned around and just backhanded him across the face with the tablet. He left me alone after that and I didn't get in any trouble. Then, last year, my best friend ran into another kid from that class and told him I said hi. His immediate response was, “Remember that time she slapped that guy across the face? That was great!”

18. Sorcery

My old roommate would "accidentally" break my stuff on a regular basis. He seemed to always find this funny, and clearly thought I was too nice to ever retaliate against him. Well, lo and behold, he recently discovered that his beloved Harry Potter books are now missing pages. What a strange and mysterious development!

19. Tell It to the Judge

My parents are divorced. They did the usual "your mom/dad is the bad one and a liar" thing. I was about 15 or 16 when the split happened, and they both sent me to court to testify against one another. They both thought I was on their side. The joke was on them, though! I told the judge that they were both terrible parents!

After that, my dad told me that I was not a part of the family anymore. So, I simply said “I hate you” and told the judge to remove my weekends with him. I’m 22 years old now, and he is still trying to make up for it. I’m not sure I can ever go back to him, but let's see.

By the way, I was always a super quiet and timid kid.

20. Dining and Diving

I absolutely hate the grocery store next to my current workplace. They are just slow and take forever for anything. I am a paramedic and, one morning, I was rather busy. I tried to quickly grab some sandwiches and something to drink from said grocery store because my coworker and I thought that dispatch would be sending us out any minute.

When I got to the checkout line, I was already fed up with them because they had taken more than 15 minutes to prepare our two simple sandwiches. Then, they had about 10 customers waiting in one single checkout line. As usual, they did not bother to open up a second line when they saw that the first one was getting out of hand.

Additionally, the lady working the cash register had no idea how to handle discounts, coupons, or refunds. She was just sitting there like a dope and keeping everyone waiting even longer. So, I shot my coworker a text message and asked him to let me know if we were being paged to respond to an emergency. He said that we were indeed being paged.

I immediately pushed my way to the front of the line, ignored the protests of the people in front of me, paid, and rushed out of the store.

21. There’s No Sugar Coat-ing This One!

I used to work in retail. One night, a customer asked me when a jacket would be discounted. I told her that I couldn't say for sure, because we weren't told when certain items would be reduced in price. She called me a dumb idiot and asked me to put it on hold for 24 hours in case it got discounted overnight.

I think it's also worth noting that she claimed to be an Instagram influencer with over 5,000 followers, and she said she’d lose "deals" if she didn't get the jacket. Also, she was mean towards the store’s security guard, who happens to be one of the kindest people I've ever met in my life. I put the jacket aside for her, but not before doing a system search and finding out that there were only three of these jackets left in her size in the entire country.

Fast forward 24 hours and she hasn't come to pick up the jacket yet. I was feeling extra petty and I’d had a particularly bad day the day before. So exactly 24 hours after I had put it aside for her, I decided to buy it myself. I browsed around the store for a while before going to pay, and of course, by the time I went to pay, the girl was up there at the checkouts throwing a fit.

I didn’t stop there. Once I got to my car, I went online and ordered one of the other remaining jackets before driving to the other side of town and buying the third and last one in the country as well. It was near the end of the season, too, so chances are there weren't going to be anymore any time soon. The whole thing cost me more money than I would have liked it to, but I stopped a monster from getting her way for once. And I don't regret it.

22. This One’s a Stinker

All my life, I’ve been bullied. Usually, I just ignore it and eventually the perpetrators go away. One time, they were picking on me, I was ignoring them, and they weren’t going away. I was getting very annoyed. I finally said screw it and passed gas right in this guy’s face. He definitely didn’t see that coming, and he stayed as far away from me as possible from that day on.

23. A Taste of Their Own Medicine

For whatever reason, living with my awful mom who yelled a lot made me a very passive and quiet person once I left. I always do my best to stay peaceful and be nice to everyone. But recently, I had issues with someone I knew who was stalking me and harassing me online. After politely requesting that they leave me alone, they came and found me in person to try and talk smack. So, after they had finished saying some mean stuff to me and had turned around to walk away, I stopped them in their tracks and legit yelled at them in public. I really, truly let it rip and said some horrible things.

I’m not one to ever cause a scene but, in this case, my only regret was not doing that sooner.

24. I’m a Little Tea Cup

Where I live, a strange cult is permitted to routinely load a van with speakers and go about town spreading music and their creepy message. Obviously, it's a nightmare to be around. One time, while hanging out on my balcony, I just lost my patience and threw my glass teacup at the truck. It hit the van and there was some shouting, so I quickly scurried back inside and hid.

I think they came around the building knocking on some doors, but nothing else happened. It felt good to finally take a shot at those crazy people.

25. A Christmas Miracle

I'm sort of the lynchpin in my family. My older sisters frequently fight each other and my parents don't get along, but I try to hold things together. I help my sister with her mental health and my other one with money. Even though we all live near each other, I'm the only one that visits my parents. I take care of my grandma every day, frequently help anyone that asks, cook for people constantly, and I'm always the first one back down to avoid a fight. I'm also gay.

My dad has been struggling to cope with this fact for a while and has always been a jerk about it to me. I let it go. For almost four years, I let him have wiggle room to work things out. It's clear now that he's made no effort at all. One year, when Christmas came, my aunt who was hosting insisted that I bring my boyfriend, who everyone knew and loved already except, of course, for my dad.

He had not even met him. We were all in the same house for a while before I had some courage and asked my dad "Do you want me to introduce you?" With the most petulant facial expression I've ever seen, he practically yelled "No" and turned away from me to start talking to my very uncomfortable uncle. I was embarrassed, enraged, and so very disappointed.

At that point, I just said screw it. I went around the party and told every single family member about what he had just done. By the end of the evening, everyone had turned on him. I then stopped talking to my dad. It's been six months. My sisters are furious at my mom for defending him. I have ignored every text that he’s sent me in that time.

My mom is mad at me for detonating this bomb but I don't care. I'm tired of ripping parts out of myself to keep this rusted old junker of a family running. No one does anything for me ever, so now I'm doing something for me. Sort yourselves out, or leave me alone. Life's too short for me to saddle myself with everyone else's nonsense.

26. Does Not Compute

I got bullied in middle school. We were working with laptops and some dudes kept pressing buttons on my keyboard every few minutes to try and mess up what I was working on. After like three times, one of them tried again. I turned my whole body towards him, grabbed him at the throat, and tipped him over with his chair. I then held him down on the ground for a few seconds.

Then, I let him go, sat back down, and continued doing my work in peace.

27. Scrap That Idea

When I was 10 years old, I went to an after-school football club. We always got changed for it in our classrooms after everyone left at 3:15. I had a perfect record in school. No detentions, no nothing. But one day, I decided to try and do something “evil” for a change. So, one afternoon, I waited till everyone had finished changing and I was alone in the classroom. I then carried out my “evil” plan of scribbling out the letter ‘S’ on the sign for the “scrap paper” drawer.

28. Throwing Caution to the Toilet

I’ve always been a good kid but one day I just really felt a strong desire to do something aggressive for a change. So I threw a recycling bin over a bathroom stall that some guy was pooping in. I thought it was hilarious at the time and felt pretty proud of myself for doing it. In hindsight, though, it was probably super dangerous and wrong. I would have screamed too if I were the guy in the stall.

29. Snack Time

I was working a minimum wage job in a supermarket. I was broke. I hit bad times. My boss hated most of his employees and treated them like they weren't worth anything. Up to that point, I had been a pretty decent employee. But then I just lost it one day. I started stealing little snacks and fruits from the store.

I later realized that I wasn't the only one. A lot of people didn't care anymore either, and they were doing even worse things than I was. I don't work there anymore. But I never got caught. Some did though and got fired immediately.

30. Holiday Shopping

I’m self-employed but wanted to get out of the house for a bit, so I took a seasonal job at JC Penney. I have extensive retail management experience, but they just needed a cashier. Cool. I did a few shifts and hated it, but bought new Christmas stuff to replace what I had left behind with my ex at deeply discounted prices.

I was already thinking of just quitting because the pay was peanuts compared to working for myself, but that very day the management team presented me with an official name tag and acted like it was a huge deal. I was scheduled to work from 4 PM to midnight on Thanksgiving and expected to be back at 8 AM the next day for Black Friday.

I was dressed in a black blazer and skirt combo, so completely professional. Immediately, though, my manager chewed me out for not wearing a red shirt. Originally, the company had said they would provide me with one, but they never did. I told them I wasn’t spending an hour’s wages on a red shirt for a seasonal job, especially when other jobs usually provided me with hundreds of dollars’ worth of clothes if a certain image was expected.

My tolerance for nonsense had already been exceeded and I wasn’t even on the floor yet. I was asked to do go-backs, and I kept my section of the store immaculate while the rest looked horrible. The other seasonals were all high school girls with their first jobs. There was an abandoned cart full of stuff in my section, so I whisked it all back into place in just a minute.

Apparently, the lady who had abandoned it got angry and demanded to know who had taken her stuff, but it was so chaotic that no one knew and I said nothing. I just listened in passing as I grabbed the go-backs while she cussed out the manager. Nothing could be done for her. Then, towards the end of the night, I got put on the cash register.

These pillows were marked “Buy one, Get one 50% off.” This younger guy wanted to purchase them and struggled to understand the deal. I explained, and he understood. Cue his crazy dad, who butted in and said he thinks the sign means buy one, get one free. We spent the next five minutes arguing about this. He was being rude, so I decided to just stop caring and not to be nice to him while dealing with the situation. I walked over to the sign, pointed at it, and very aggressively explained in full detail why he was an idiot.

I was openly hostile towards him, which would have put me in hot water if I had actually planned to stay with this job. Luckily, I knew that I had no intention of doing that. Anyway, that management team is now all losing their jobs since that store is closing permanently. Oh well!

31. Shouldering the Blame

My brother's wife was always the type to just randomly hit you on the shoulder. I've asked her to stop many times before, but she would just reply, "It's funny to see your reaction." I've known her since high school, and I am 27 now. Last year was their wedding. After the wedding was over and we all went out for food, she obviously punched me again while everyone was at the table.

I leaned towards her and, so as not to bother anyone else, I whispered something to her that made the smile drop off her face in an instant. I said: "You're family now. That means that if you punch me again, I will punch back. And I won't stop the first time." She never even tried it again.

32. Hitting the Target

I worked at Target when I was in my late teens and thought I was doing as good of a job as I could be. When it came time for the yearly review, they told me I was "consistently inconsistent" and only gave me a six-cent raise. I was angry, but at the time I was too afraid to speak up for myself. Barely a month later, I was doing the same quality of work as before and was named employee of the month.

So it's ok to tell me I suck in order to justify an insultingly low raise, but then celebrate me as employee of the month? Two weeks later, I found a new job and instead of giving them two weeks' notice, I called in before one of my shifts and said I'm never coming back. Take that, Target!

33. Eating Their Problems

A guy I worked with at a Mexican restaurant was still in high school and was being tormented by other kids. I felt so bad for him. Then, one night, a group of guys came in to eat and my coworker told me they were the ones who had been persecuting him the worst. I took their table and secretly rubbed my sweaty junk all over their tortillas before serving them.

It’s the only time I have ever tampered with a customer’s food, but they deserved worse honestly.

34. Vengeance Is Mine

I was an outsider in elementary school for a lot of reasons. On the last day of eighth grade, I finally said screw it. I grabbed the guy who had led the little group of jerks that had made my life miserable for all those years. I tipped him headfirst into a trash can. One of those ones that didn't get emptied regularly.

No one believed him when he ran crying to the office to tell on me.

35. Pillow Talk

My college roommate was a super jerk. He wanted to split the room instead of living with bunk beds, and he gave me the bad half. I went home almost every single weekend just to get away from him. I hardly ever got enough sleep living in that place, so it was hard to get to class on time and my grades started taking a hit. He also talked about me behind my back and spread a bunch of rumors. He poisoned all of my friends against me.

So, I farted on his pillow. At every opportunity I had for the entire remainder of the school year, I took my rancid gas out on the spot where he placed his head when he slept at night.

36. The Key to Success

I once keyed the side of a car. I had just parked and a family pulled up to the slot beside me. When the kids opened their car doors, they slammed them right into my car. I stepped out to talk to them and the whole family basically started running away without saying a word or even looking back. I went to run my errand, then quickly came back out and keyed across the side of their car before I left.

Might have been excessive, but it felt very good.

37. Bending the Rules

About two years ago, there was this really annoying guy who sat next to me in a computer science class at school. He kept turning my computer off all the time just to get on my nerves, and he repeated this during every single lesson over the course of months—until one day I finally got really fed up. I bent and squeezed his hand as hard as I could. Two of his fingers popped out of place and to this day they still are out of place.

We are really good friends now, which is weird.

38. Drilled Him

I don't remember this because I was so young, but I was told this by many people. Apparently, when I was very young, there was some older kid who would torment all the kids at our daycare. He would do stuff like stomp on kids’ faces when they were getting their diapers changed or scream in people’s ears randomly. Somehow, nothing was ever done about him and the behavior went on for a while.

Eventually, I got sick of it and just threw a toy drill at his face one day as hard as I could while he was just sitting there minding his own business. It gave him a black eye for a long time and he stopped being a jerk from that day on. Other than this one hilarious incident, I have always been the best-behaved kid you can possibly imagine.

39. Brotherly Love

Despite always being a “good girl” my whole life, I once slept with my ex-boyfriend's brother after he broke up with me by telling me I was fat and then sleeping with a girl who he insisted was just his friend. The best part? Definitely the look on his face when we passed each other on my way to the bathroom from his brother's room at two in the morning made the whole thing worth it.

40. We Could All Use a Vacation Now and Then

I have always been a good employee and followed all of the company’s rules. One year, though, I finished a project way ahead of schedule and decided to then take some paid grief leave off of work for an entire week due to "the passing of a loved one." In reality, no one had passed away. I had just bought myself a new PC and I wanted a little vacation.

41. Bookworm

I’m generally a very good student and I always follow all the rules. But one time I straight up plagiarized an entire book report in college by buying someone’s essay online. I got a perfect score on the assignment and never got caught for what I did. Sometimes I worry about whether I’m going to lose my diploma someday if anyone ever discovers the truth.

42. Here He Comes

I was bullied since first grade by the same guy every year. When we were in fifth grade, it got to the point where I would get mad whenever I saw his face. One day, I just couldn't take it anymore and I grabbed him by the neck the minute he walked into the room. My friend was there too and grabbed me away from him. It was almost too late. He was starting to suffocate.

43. Elbow Room

I'm always nice to everybody, but there's this one guy who was always a jerk to me. One day, he hurt himself doing something really stupid and then started trying to get sympathy from everyone at our school. So as he was talking to someone about it, I just decided to walk up to him and say, "I don't care that you broke your elbow and neither does anyone else."

44. He Really Puts the Wait in Waiter

I once went to a restaurant and ordered a pretty decent amount of food and drinks. My bill probably came to over $60 when all was said and done. When I was finished eating, I asked my waiter multiple times for the check, and he was always like “Yeah, I’ll go grab that for you,” but then five minutes later I would keep seeing him chatting with his coworkers or helping another table.

After about 45 minutes of being ignored, I just got up and left without paying.

45. Car Trouble

Basically, my dad has been a horrible parent for as long as I can remember. One day, we were in the car and he kept interrupting every single one of my sentences while we were arguing. I was trying to explain my point of view, which he had asked me to do, but he was clearly not interested at all in trying to understand it.

During this conversation, I accidentally dropped a curse word out of frustration. He reacted by trying to slap me while pinching my thigh. He even acted like he was going to try and push me out of the car. At that point, I just decided that enough was enough. I punched him right in the face. His mouth was a bit bloody after that.

46. Something Smells Fishy About This Story

I caught my now ex-wife sleeping with a married dude. I moved her out into an apartment. Not two days later, I was on my way home, passed her new apartment, and saw his truck in her driveway. Instead of going home, I went to the grocery store, bought a couple of whole salmons from the fresh fish department, went back to the apartment building, crawled underneath the guy’s truck, and put both the fish inside his truck.

Luckily, the door was unlocked. I knew full well that they would rot in the heat over the next few days and make his truck smell awful. His wife texted me a few days later, saying "very funny." He ended up having to buy a new truck because he couldn't get the stink out.

47. Call Ended

There was a girl who used to torment one of my friends. I once threw her cell phone out of a Ferris wheel after she asked me to hold it to take a group selfie. She asked me because I had the longest arms out of any of us—but then she said that my friend couldn't be in the photo because she was ugly. Huge mistake. I felt really good about what I did.

48. Drive Like the Wind

My mum's doctor once called me when he couldn't reach her. When I heard what he had to say, my blood ran cold. He told me she had appendicitis and needed to go to the hospital immediately. It ended up being gangrenous and she had two infections. I was normally a very cautious driver, but I literally drove like one of those crazy road-raged maniacs you always see on the streets to get to her house as fast as humanly possible, where I found her sleeping.

I wasn't proud of my behavior on the roads. It's not legal, but I would do it again.
