This Person Took Revenge On The Evil HOA Queen

The next story comes from a passive aggressive resident known as Oldag online. Their neighbor is the Queen of the local Homeowners Association. According to them, she is obsessed with making sure nobody touches her lawn. But she is also obsessed with everyone else’s. If they don’t mow weekly, they get a letter. If their trash is on the curb more than four hours before or after pick-up, they get a letter. Each letter is a $100 fine. Oldag says, “I have managed to collect 16 letters this year alone! So I walk my dogs to the edge of my yard and give them a treat if they drop their load in her yard. I also put all empty liquor bottles I can gather while I walk my dogs in her recycle bins. This one started rumors of her being an alcoholic.”

They Tattled to The Neighbor’s Mom to Get Revenge

This petty neighbor knew all it would take was getting someone’s mother involved. He moved to a huge tower block with a large number of drug users and dealers. His neighbor is a well known dealer. They liked to party on weekends, and the neighbor often comes out and complains. At one point, it nearly escalated into a fight. Afterwards, threats of violence began. One day, his roommate was in the lift talking to a nice old lady. The roommate told her about the neighbor threatening us, and she asks what number he lives in. He tells her, and she goes, “That is my son.” She gets very angry saying, “He has a cheek, because he used to have constant parties when he was younger. I will be having words with him.” So he essentially tattled on him to his mother. Ever since then, he hasn’t said a word to them. Mama’s boy…

His Roommates Stole His Chicken Nuggets, So He Took Revenge With Laxatives

We all know somebody that takes everything really seriously… but this guy really took his chicken nuggets seriously. One summer, the chicken nugget lover lived at college. In his building, there was one fairly large kitchen. There was a big fridge where everyone kept their food. He kept a rather large bag of chicken nuggets in there that he would eat occasionally. The next day, he went down to the kitchen, craving some chicken nuggets. Apparently, they were all gone. What kind of person steals another man’s chicken nuggets? He did not take this lightly. Other people’s food got stolen as well. So he bought a 20z of Coke, a nice thing of laxatives, and crushed them up into a fine powder and put it in the Coke… He then put the coke in the fridge and walked away. Next day the Coke was gone, and somewhere someone was pooping their brains out. Never steal chicken nuggets.

The Ceiling Fan Ghost

When this vengeful neighbor moved into his new apartment, he quickly discovered that his downstairs neighbor was a little too sensitive for her own good – and a little too eager to blame him for everything that went wrong. The night he moved in, the woman downstairs came storming up and insisted that he quiet down because she has to get up early for work. He sleeps in late, so it didn’t make sense that he began receiving a steady stream of angry notes about his alarm clock waking her up. Other things happened, like her daughter hitting his car and taking his packages. One night, he noticed that his fan and light turned off, because he and his neighbor have the same remote. At around 3:30 AM, he sat on the floor above her bedroom fan, and repeatedly turned the light on and off for 10 minutes until he could hear her freaking out. Then, he stopped and laughed into his pillow. The notes continued to flow and she continued to think that her light fixture was out to get her.

He Waits For The Snow to Get His Revenge

This next story comes from a user called meatbeagle. He used to live in an apartment where the rent did not include snow removal. So every winter, the residents maintained a narrow shoveled path. A couple moved in next to him, and were the worst neighbors. They blasted music at all hours, smoked heavily just outside of their door, and started placing really tacky lights all over our backyard. He tried talking with them, to no avail. So rather than engage, he simply stopped doing half of the shoveling. He had no issue trudging through thigh-deep snow in order to watch these jerks do the same. They raged, called the landlord, and left us pissed-off notes. He responded calmly every time – ‘I pay my rent, and I’m not required to touch a shovel. Deal with it.’ The knowledge that his neighbors were suffering every time it snowed was wonderful.

The Neighbor Used Up All Their Hot Water, So He Did The Same

With a hot water tank in his unit and his electricity paying for it, this guy was understandably frustrated when he came home to find that his water was only coming out warm. His neighbors were incredibly inconsiderate jerks. The hot water tank was in his unit, so his electricity paid for it. One year at Christmas, he returned home and his water was coming out warm. It turns out that the neighbors had their bathtub faucet leaking the hot water down the drain for almost two weeks, because they forgot to tell the landlord. From then on, every single time one of the neighbors got into the shower, he would have to wash dishes, or fill a mop bucket, or fill the sink with steaming hot water as a humidifier, etc. Sometimes they would just figure he was washing dishes. So they’d get out of the shower and wait for him to finish. Once they were back in the shower, he was at it again.

Noisy Neighbor Kids Run Amok, So He Starts Singing At 2AM

When this man’s neighbors‘ rowdy children turned his home into a playground, Graytotoro turned to the power of song to restore peace and quiet. There was a family who lived below him whose children ran amok with their friends. Aside from the usual yelling that young boys do, they left their bikes everywhere and threw tennis balls and rocks against the window. The dad was quite literally throwing a tennis ball at his wall next to the window. As you can imagine, tripping over a bike while coming home severely drunk is not fun at all. The neighbor’s children loved shouting and leaving their stuff all over the place. So this petty neighbor sang Edward Khil’s “I Am Glad, ‘Cause I’m Finally Returning Back Home” at full blast in the wee hours of the morning. Apparently e has a very deep and loud singing voice. So it sounded very much like the real thing… At two in the morning.
