Two things about this petty revenge story:
1. I think we’re all starting to crack a bit at this point. Tensions are mounting, and if your neighbor makes a reasonable request, try your best to accommodate it.
2. While this isn’t the most epic petty revenge story, I’m always drawn to petty revenge stories where the person in question provided an actual photo of their misdeed, and I kind of love the final image you will see in this post.
Without further ado:
I teach kids online, so naturally I have to be on the phone/video chatting with them. I’m working one day and my neighbor decides to start blasting music and I instantly can’t hear my student anymore. So I go outside to ask him to turn it down.
He has the speaker on his front step just cranked all the way up. Here’s how the exchange went.
Me: Um, excuse me, can you turn down your music? I’m on the phone with a student, your music is a little loud.
Him (surly right off the bat): So?
Me: …So I’m on the phone. I can’t hear my student.
Me: I’m trying to do my job. I’m working.
Me: So can you please turn your music down?
Him: Yeah I’m [email protected]#king doing it get back to your house.
He was confrontational and angry from the second I started talking and clearly had no intention of turning it down so I just walked away and as I’m walking away he was like, “You wanna do it like that? I’ll [email protected]#king do it like that!”
I was just so baffled? That this guy would be such an a$$hole for literally no reason, immediately. I’m trying to do my goddamn job, and he hurt my feelings, so [email protected]#k that guy.
Mailed him a homemade glitter bomb. I folded it up and glued the edges so he’ll have to pull it open & the glitter will explode everywhere :)
Stay safe out there, and remember to be patient and kind with both your children and their teachers.
[Editor’s Note: Actual photo of the glitter bomb before it was mailed, in all of its glory.]
