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.
