Amused People Share The Best Comeuppance They've Seen Happen To A Spoiled Kid[rebelmouse-image 18345392 is_animated_gif=
I remember watching Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory in school as a child. I remember my classmates being dazzled and fascinated by the wonders of candy creation while I spent half the movie going "nope." First of all, if Grandpa can dance around and march around the chocolate factory, why was he just laying in bed at home? If you can dance and do a whole tour, you could have swept the floor or cooked a meal or something, Gramps. That's shady. I remember side-eyeing the whole boat ride wondering why nobody else thought this was weird.
The worst, though, the absolute worst, was Veruca Salt. I spent the whole movie daydreaming about how much I would LOVE to just kick her in the back of the knee and send her tumbling down the stairs.
I laughed at her fate. Heartily. Without apology. Maybe I was a weird and vindictive child, or maybe I just really needed some justice to happen to the spoiled, privileged, awful person I was watching on screen. Either way, I don't think I'm the only one who took a sense of joy from it. One Reddit user asked:
What was the most epic comeuppance you've ever seen a spoiled kid get?
Directly Into A Rose Bush[rebelmouse-image 18345394 is_animated_gif=
I worked at Taco Bell in HS. At the time, we had kids meals. This kid comes in with his parents and orders a kids meal. Apparently, he had been in recently, and already had that toy. He started screaming at me to get him another toy. His dad looked at me with an absolutely dejected look on his face and begged me to go get the toy. I dug through the new box of toys, and found one. The kid ripped it out of my hands, and ran outside... Directly into a rose bush.
My coworker was legit laying on the ground laughing.
Yes, I Do Know Who Your Mom Is[rebelmouse-image 18345395 is_animated_gif=
I used to work at a pony camp that catered to rich kids from a very nice neighborhood. We would have really spoiled kids all the time. While annoying, the most frustrating part is trying to maintain authority just so the little kids don't get themselves killed by 1,000 lb animals.
Anyways, we had a maybe 10 yr old kid from some mildly famous sportscaster one week. Kid was just downright awful. She ignored everything we told her and was mean to the other kids in camp. At one point she started a physical fight with another girl and when she felt like she was getting beaten she started yelling "Do you know who my mom is?! I'm going to tell her!" The other kid got scared and started crying.
My coworker replied "Actually, I do know your mom and I know she wouldn't like to hear about this. Why don't I call her right now?" Little brat didn't believe her so my coworker did. She was much easier to deal with the rest of the week.
Turns out, my coworker worked with her mom many times over the years. She's a professional makeup artist for tv and did her makeup more than a few times.
Mac N Cheese Kid[rebelmouse-image 18345396 is_animated_gif=
Here at Uconn, they serve special mac n' cheese on certain days, I'm sure lots of schools do it. But our bacon jalapeno mac is pretty damn good.
Well, a certain sophomore from a wealthy family who is used to being bailed out of trouble by his rich parents got drunk and decided he wanted some mac n' cheese. He was clearly intoxicated, and had the balls to walk around the food court drinking beer. The manager sees this and won't let him in the food line. Our boy spends the next 10 minutes mercilessly berating the poor guy and his staff for being beneath him.
The manager gives him so many chances to just walk away, but our boy isn't leaving without his mac. He shoves the manager (not for the first time) and another employee decides he's done with this s***. Hero employee tackles our boy and pins him. Kid spends the next few minutes pinned to the ground while the cops arrive, screams "I'M ABSOLUTELY F******", and is arrested. Not his first arrest, not his first expulsion from a college. From what I hear, he's since been arrested or expelled from another school.
We'll never forget you, Mac N' Cheese kid.
When Nature Fights Back[rebelmouse-image 18345397 is_animated_gif=
Boy Scout camp out in Utah (when Boy Scouts were pretty much run by the Mormon Church). A porcupine walked through our camp and this spoiled rich kid got a stick and chased it up a tree. We all told him to stop. He wouldn't listen. Scout leaders were off doing God knows what at the time.
So this porcupine is up the tree and now the spoiled weenie wants to shoot hard candy at with his wrist rocket. He can't get a clear shot so he climbs up the tree and sits on a branch under the porcupine. Shoots a hard candy at the porcupine and hits it, hard.
It was right then that he learned that when a treed porcupine feels threatened, it just lets go and lets the quills break the fall. The big porcupine fell right onto the spoiled kids shoulder, bounced off, hit his thigh and then landed on the ground. It waddled away and we just laughed at the now howling spoiled kid.
Soccer Cleats[rebelmouse-image 18345398 is_animated_gif=
Used to work childcare at a few different programs like a summer camp, after school program and soccer camp. The town isn't huge, so needless to say over a few years I got to know several kids from different programs. Knowing the kids as well as I do allowed me to set up the best lesson for one spoiled kid.
One 10 year-old boy I knew from the after school program was a total jerk. He was a bully, a snob, didn't think he had to listen, was constantly telling on the other kids for little stuff hoping to get them into trouble (a personal pet peeve of mine) - the kid was just awful. He came to my soccer camp and proceeded to make fun of an 8 year-old girl pretty mercilessly because she had old cleats and was using the group ball. Snotty kid had the newest Nike cleats and a brand new soccer ball with a cool design. He wouldn't leave her alone no matter what any of us adults said. Unfortunately for him, I knew this little girl and I knew that the reason her cleats looked old and worn down is that she was a BEAST. She was just an incredible all around amazing athlete who loved soccer and played for hours every single day.
So I paired them together for a simple drill. In the drill, one person starts with ball and the other is supposed to get past them and kick the ball at stationary cone about 10 yards away. The point is to simulate passing/scoring accurately while under pressure.
He was, of course, angry. He complained that she was too young and just a girl. I told him that if he hit the cone 3 times, he could pick his partner. She agreed without hesitation. He started whining and pointed out her shoes to me again as if that were going to change my mind. When he saw that I wasn't going to give him a more "worthy" opponent, he gave in and played.
**She proceeded to humiliate him over the next few minutes. **
Not once in 5 attempts did she let him even come CLOSE to getting past her. He was LIVID!! At first he bent down and messed with laces as if his magic shoes which he loved so much might be the problem. Then saying he needed to use his ball, not the group ball. Nothing worked. He was so angry I thought he was going to be violent - but then it was her turn to be on offense.
He talked more trash and refused to let her use his ball. She didn't say a word, she just went and got a new ball.
I blew whistle and she did a step over fake which made him move to the side. She stood back up straight and kicked the ball between his legs, hitting the cone. She barely even moved. He was so angry. On her second try, he charged her screaming. She kept her cool and wound back like she was going to drill the ball at his face. He ducked and squealed as she dribbled around him with his hands still covering his head. Another hit to the cone for her and she hadn't even come close to putting in any real effort.
I figured he had enough and called a water break. The kid was just dumbfounded, he honestly thought his shoes were going to make him better without any effort. He was better behaved the rest of the week, but honestly I think she just broke his spirit. He just seemed out of it. Hope he's doing all right.
The girl is like an all American HS soccer player last I checked, won't be surprised if I see her in Olympics one day.
Cards Just Worked In Our Favor[rebelmouse-image 18345399 is_animated_gif=
I was about 15, I was in the woods in England with some friends (local public nature reserve) playing on a rope swing, drinking energy drinks, eating snacks, chatting, just having a good time keeping to ourselves really. The rope swing itself was on a very tall tree hanging over what I can only explain as a miniature valley (2 small hills, a gap in the middle, rope swing on one side but will reach the other side).
Then some kids came along on their bikes, dressed up in tracksuits and quite mouthy; you know the type.
They told us to move along from "their" rope swing. It wasn't theirs, I set that thing up myself! Obviously we said no, but we did say we'll leave them to it for a bit if they want to have a go. There's no reason we can't all enjoy it.
They wouldn't take that answer, so we carried on playing on the rope swing as if they weren't even there. Then they began throwing sticks and rocks at us, but even that didn't budge us.
Next thing one of them tries to show off, and speeds down the hill on his bike to try and grab me while I swing, but his mate throws a stick at the same time and it lodges in his wheel and sends him flying down the hill, to add insult to injury he flies right in my swing path and gets 2 knees to the ribs. Completely took the wind out of him, and so they all left feeling defeated.
It feels good because we did nothing out of order, the cards just worked in our favor.
"Tell Me What I Can Do."[rebelmouse-image 18345400 is_animated_gif=
Working at a Chuck E Cheese one year.
Some little kid keeps getting mad because he can't win many tickets from a game. Kid begins to kick and scream, toss things around, etc. He tried to hit one of the animatronics. When someone tried to get him to stop he pulled a "DO YOU KNOW WHO MY DAD IS? DO YOU KNOW WHAT HE CAN DO TO YOU?"
We all just shook our heads and didn't know what to say. Was his dad the owner? Rich? etc? We had no idea and we kind of didn't care as long as the kid stopped acting up. We were trying to figure out how to handle him when we hear a voice from behind him:
"Tell me what I can do."
We see this guy in a business suit just standing there with a really pissed off look on his face. It was the kind of face that you look at and wonder if this man ever smiled. The kid just froze up and muttered something to his dad, who obviously didn't like being used as a threat.
The man apologized for his son's behavior, grabbed the kid, and walked away. He came back a few hours later and gave all the employees gifts. I got an xbox 360. One of the first generation ones. I still have it with me if anyone wants a picture. He just gave me the console. No wires, controllers, or anything.
It took me a while to realize dad must have gone home and taken his son's "luxury" toys and brought them back to give to the employees who had to deal with him.
The Beluga Show[rebelmouse-image 18345401 is_animated_gif=
Was at the Vancouver Aquarium with a school field trip for my kids and a few other families. One family would do everything to push their way to the front, not pay for things, etc. Their kids had heelies on. The park was pretty busy.
We were sitting and waiting for the Beluga show to start and one of the kids comes buzzing in from stage left on his stupid heelies and hits a wet patch and his feet go flying out from under him and he lands flat on his back in a giant puddle in front of the entire crowd.
Everyone started to laugh. It was glorious.
Women's Work[rebelmouse-image 18345402 is_animated_gif=
On the first day of a two week vacation, I saw my spoiled 10 year old cousin tell his mother, his older female cousin, his aunt and his grandmother that he wasn't going to clear his place or rinse his dishes because "that's women's work." For the rest of that two week vacation, nobody had to lift a finger to clear a plate, rinse a dish or wash a pot because it was his job. At times there were over a dozen of us there.
Mom Is A Teacher Here[rebelmouse-image 18345404 is_animated_gif=
I was substitute teaching a 10th grade ELA class and they were instructed to write an essay silently and told by their own teacher (he was leaving for a meeting) to not use their phones. Any phone usage was written up. Well, being the substitute teacher, there were quite a few students who ignored that rule and were testing me and even though they were working, I found myself walking around reminding them to put away their phones and to stop talking (they would stop).
One particular student started making phone calls. I told him to put away his phone and if I caught him doing that again, I would write him up. He tells me point-blank "I am calling my mother, you probably don't know her but she is a teacher here and I am arranging to get my friend and I out of here so that I can work in a more peaceful location." I tell him he is not going anywhere. The students become completely silent, stop working and look and him and me and I write his name down. A woman walks by the room and the kids act up a bit. He starts saying "that's my mom! I'm going to talk to her" I tell him "stay in your seat". He does but accuses me of not believing him. "You don't believe me?! That's my mom! She is a teacher here" I never said I didn't believe him but I took a chance, walked to this woman and explain to her that her son was making phone calls in class despite warnings when he should be in the middle of writing an essay. I add that he plans on leaving class and he was attempting to use his mother's status as a way out.
She was indeed his mother and she ripped him a new one right in front of his peers and the students burst out laughing after she leaves. He accuses me of blowing it out of proportion. I tell him to finish his essay. After that, the class was so quiet, you could hear a pin drop and I found a comfortable seat by the window.
I did feel a bit bad about it because I know high school can be tough so I talked to their teacher afterwards. The teacher said he probably needed it. Turns out, this particular kid did this a lot. The other students often called him out for using his mom for special privileges. He would ask his mom to write late passes so he could be excused almost daily.
The key to any successful relationship is communication.
The ability to be open and receptive to what a significant other has to say, as well as the ability to be able to convey something weighing on one's mind, can be healing.
But depending on the circumstance, some things are better left unsaid.
Curious to hear examples of what those might be, Redditor FamiliarFarmer8356 asked:
"What's something you wish you could tell your partner without upsetting them?"
If there is conflict, there is a way to discuss and address the issue in a civil and respectful manner.
Things Just Happen
"Every bad thing that happens doesn't require someone to be blamed for it. And that someone doesn't always have to be me."
A Cornerstone Of A Successful Union
"One of the cornerstones of a good marriage, is knowing how to argue. I’d actually say that before a couple get married, they should check how their potential partner behaves in an argument. What are they like when they get angry. It’s important because no two individuals are going to agree all the time. And on those occasions, it’s important to remember not to belittle the other. Deal with the issue at hand. And especially, don’t argue in front of the kids. You have no idea how much lasting damage this causes."
"All married couples should learn the art of battle as they should learn the art of making love. Good battle is objective and honest - never vicious or cruel. Good battle is healthy and constructive, and brings to a marriage the principles of equal partnership."
It's Not That Deep
"please stop complaining about everything."
"If you keep seeking out reasons to be miserable, you will find them."
"I'm tired of being dragged down with you."
There's no need to get defensive when there's something to discuss.
It's Not About You
"That some days I’m just tired from class and work and just want some me time, it’s not that I hate you my social battery is just running out."
"Her first reaction to something adverse doesn't have to be anger."
In The Words Of A Pirate
"In the wise words of captain Jack Sparrow sometimes:"
'the problem is not the problem, the problem is your attitude toward the problem.'
It Takes Two To Tango
"That I wish she’d be more independent so she didn’t need my help for everything outside the house."
"That it’s a little disturbing how aggressively he drives when he’s grumpy… heavy on both gas and brakes, zooming in and out of traffic, swearing at people who make mistakes… very unlike him."
Sometimes the truth hurts when talking about members of the family.
A Real Assessment
"That her mother is not a good person."
"I told my husband that it's not that his family is nosy and overbearing, it's that I hate watching him cave and negotiate as if they have a right to behave like this, and I really hate when I'm the bad guy for wanting reasonable limits."
"It got worse, then it got better, FYI."
"His parents are greedy, selfish people and treat him like an atm."
There's definitely a fine line between withholding your thoughts to protect the person you love and being brutally honest.
If coming clean isn't going to resolve an issue, then it might be better to suck it up and deal with whatever frustrations you have about the other person.
It's up to you, but make sure the delivery doesn't come from a place of rage if you do decided to be totally transparent about your negative thoughts.
Every family has a black sheep or every family in its entirety are black sheep.
What is a "black sheep" anyway?
It used to mean a person who brought shame or embarrassment to a family, but it's more often used now to mean the member who is just very different from everyone else—sometimes in a good way.
Redditor Frozen_yoghurt123 asked:
"Who is the 'black sheep' of your family?"
I'm the black sheep or at least I'd like to think so.
"Probably my dad's cousin, who went to prison for murdering his lover's husband."
DW_555Oh My Wow GIFGiphy
"My Dad. He is the only one of 6 siblings who wasn't a huge f**k up. And yet, before my Grandma died she stated that he was her 'biggest disappointment.' He is estranged from his surviving siblings... not by his choice. It honestly blows my mind."
"Toxicity is often a group mindset thing; people don't want you to leave because they are dysfunctionally co-dependent on each other and need each other to justify their own shortcomings in life. A lot of the 'family loyalty' stuff is typically shouted loudest by those who are the least good idea to stay loyal towards."
"My great uncle who stole my great grandfathers identity, stole a couple million dollars, and ran off. No one even knew he was alive until my great grandfathers funeral in 2009. No one has seen him since. My grandma started to cry because she honestly thought he was dead."
"Everyone else just kind of nodded on his direction and went on with the rest of the funeral. I just remember being very confused because I was 9 and I had never met this guy who my dad pulled me aside and told me he was my great uncle. It was a few years later that I got the full story."
"According to my mean aunt, the 'matriarch' in her own mind, it's my twin brother because "he doesn't care about family now that he's a doctor." (He's a resident. Chief resident. He works ridiculous hours and spends the rest of the time recovering from work.)"
"According to my ex-MIL (who still counts because she's Son's grandma), it's me, for divorcing her son."
"According to everyone else, it's Mean Aunt. The rest of us are warm and caring and compassionate. We have our moments; all of us have been accidentally thoughtless or done something selfish once in a while, but we're not deliberately mean and snarky all the time."
"My immediate family are the black sheep of the entire family."
DarthDreganJohn Stamos Cheers GIF by GrandfatheredGiphy
Sounds like everyone has a little black sheep in them.
"By now, my brother for cutting off everyone because he prefers his rude, selfish, paranoid, narcissist wife over all of us."
"My wife is the black sheep of her family in the sense that she's the only one who isn't a rude, selfish, paranoid narcissist."
Lvcivs2311Joe Dirt Brother GIFGiphy
"Me. My granddaddy told me 'I’ve only had the sheriff knock on my door two times in my 80 years, and both times he was looking for you! 'I did some dumb sh*t, caused a little trouble, burned a few bridges but always managed to stay out of jail. Partly because my sister has kept an attorney on retainer for me since I was 16."
"My younger brother (2nd of 4) is a compulsive liar and it got him in a lot of little trouble as a teen, then he told his wife he graduated a big college when we're not even sure if he got his GED because he failed to graduate HS, went to some GED school and eventually just stopped going."
"IF he graduated college, he never mentioned he was going in the 4+ years it takes nor mention graduation or have a diploma. He's not a bad dude, but now family time is super awkward when he and his wife are talking about 'their' college team."
The NOT good girl...
"My aunt's daughter. She’s been in jail for drugs, stolen money from my aunt and other family members to use on drugs and physically abused my aunt. My aunt has tried getting her help, but nothing has worked. She’s just not a good person, and everyone in my family, except my aunt, doesn’t want anything to do with her. I haven’t seen her in 8 years now, and I’m happy about that."
"A former nun - my great aunt - left the religious life and got married. She called herself 'the black sheep of the family' because her habit was black."

Well the black sheep sound like the most interesting family members.
Sex is great, but there are more ways than one to accomplish that euphoric feeling without sex.
There are so many small, ordinary aspects of life that can just send a person and we come across them daily.
A good steak.
A home repair.
The things that make you say...
"I tingle all over."
Redditor OldAboba asked:
"What is the best non-sexual physical feeling you’ve ever felt?"
Adele. Adele live. She sends me.
FloatingRelaxed Exit Strategy GIF by Hannah Bronfman Giphy
"I got a professional full body (everything but my man parts) massage a few years back for the first and so far only time at a spa after the recommendation from a coworker. I felt like I was floating on a cloud for the next few days."
Through your nose...
"Sneezing when you're sick. Then you get that about 20 second feeling of breathing through your nose again and you like ahh that's what I aspire to at the moment."
"Or the very last sneeze of your illness. During a fire drill in high school, I was ambling out after fighting a head old for a few days. The alarm was killing my head which was already throbbing from the sinus pressure."
"I was nearing the field, well away from my classmates, when I cough/sneezed out a huge, green loogie - cleared it about three feet, no icky trail - and by the time I was walking back to the building I was feeling pretty much back to normal. No more head cold after that. Never had something like that ever happen again where there was such an abrupt end to the head cold."
"Right after a migraine goes away. It's almost a spiritual experience."
"This was going to be my answer. I was in the ER one time for a really bad migraine. They gave me what they called a 'migraine cocktail.' When they pushed it through the IV I could feel the cold liquid make its way through my body, up to my head. Once it hit my brain, the migraine was gone. It was pure ecstasy. Even better was that cocktail had Benadryl in it so I fell asleep not long after and slept so good."
"That stretch til you shake when you wake up."
"I once stretched too hard in the morning and got the worst calf cramp ever... it looked like a prune and I thought I would die from the pain. Couldn't stretch in bed for months afterwards out of fear it would happen again."
"When you move over 50, it turns into that stretch til you put your back into a muscle spasm that lasts days."

"I had a cast and splint on both my legs for 2 months. When they cut it off, they scratched my legs for me and the itch was just top notch! Yeah."
Itching an itch can change a life.
YUM!Emma Stone High Quality GIFGiphy
"When you're starving all day and devour a bomb a** meal."
Sleep for Life
"When you’ve been up for 20 hours+ and finally get into bed and you just know it’ll be the best sleep of your life."
"But man, after 36+ hours, the body sort of aches and it's hard to fall asleep despite being completely exhausted. Then the restless legs kick in... ugh. I do agree that a 20hr-ish stint is amazing to cuddle into, especially if you don't have to get up at any specific time the next day."
"Makes it better when you’ve been sleep deprived for weeks and know you have NO PLANS tomorrow and can sleep as much as you need."
"When you're absolutely busting for a pee and you can finally go!"
"Apparently there’s a thing called a 'pee-gasm' that people (usually women) have that causes an orgasmic feeling when you pee after holding it for a while! I’ve definitely experienced this and I’ve intentionally waited a while so I could have that good feeling... lol."
I Can Hear!!
"The feeling of water leaving your ear after being there all day."
"I had some impacted earwax for a week in one ear, and when it finally got removed it was the best feeling in the world. Initially it was like having a tv or radio in my ear that only had static, but then I could hear. Good god, I could hear. It was amazing."
"Oh man, and it’s WARM from being in your head, and the warmth makes the sensation of leaving even better."

"Sleeping in a warm blanket in winters."
"Or sleeping in a cold blanket in summer."
I am enthralled by all of those things.
People need to stop throwing out unwanted advice.
And when it is requested, think before you speak.
People with mental disorders don't need everyone telling them they have a fix like "exercise" or "herbal supplements."
Redditor Gold-Ad-2827 asked:
"People with mental disorders: What do you hate being told the most?"
I hated being told to just smile. You smile and go away.
Duhseth meyers GIF by Late Night with Seth MeyersGiphy
"It's all in your head. Where else would it?! My colon?"
"Everybody goes through that."
"This saying makes my blood boil. Or the 'I was that age once too ya know' yeah no sh*t you were that age once. And just because you were that age once doesn’t mean we have the same experience."
"They try to minimize it."
"You're worried? Just stop."
"You're sad? Just don't be."
"You're compulsively binge eating? Eat less."
"Thanks for that stellar advice."
"Or even better, 'Just do it!' As if ADHD paralysis can be stopped with a can-do attitude."
"I get so frustrated when people treat the idea of 'holistic medicine' as some kind of woo. How does it escape so many people that the body works holistically? Even a lot of doctors seem to ignore this. It's very frustrating when you have 2 or 3 or 4 illnesses that are all affecting each other, and your 'physical health' is held distinct from your mental health, and nothing anyone is doing to treat you works because no one's looking at the whole system."
"I just got a lecture from a psychiatrist I am seeing about nutrition, and he apologized to me for doing so but I told him, 'No, I appreciate it. Do it for all your patients.' because it told me he's trying to look at the whole picture and actually fix what's wrong. It gave me faith in him."

TipsSeason 23 Reaction GIF by Law & OrderGiphy
"When they try to give me tips on what to do, like bruh as if I didn't already try that."
"You don't look sad. No crap... that's so I can avoid having this conversation. Also depression isn't 'being sad' like people think."
"God, I hate this. It's because saying 'I'm depressed' has been standard for people expressing that they're slightly unhappy about something dumb like not getting enough croutons on their salad or some crap. Now that's just what everyone assumes you mean when you say you have depression."
"'Stop being lazy.'"
“'Lazy' is when you don’t want to do anything at all. 'Executive disfunction' is when you can do everything at all, but that one easy quick thing that you do want to do just makes you and your brain freeze completely days ahead. I’m tired of people not understand that even when I explain and look at me like I’m bullshitting instead."
Ways to Cope
"Maybe you should try praying harder. I did, He prescribed medication."
"Praying is a way to cope for a lot of people, I think. That's totally fine, but insisting on praying in lieu of getting real help or actually addressing the issue is when it is not only unhelpful, but dangerously detrimental."
"Religious people will bypass everyone’s cultures, identity, views, and feelings just to be right and make a point. it’s disgusting. I read somewhere that real so called Christianity is all wrong. The real faith is from the Aramaic history and all the meanings were misinterpreted and the stories and all were made up by Catholics wanting to control their people. Yuck."
'contamination'Disgusted Season 6 GIF by Brooklyn Nine-NineGiphy
"As someone with OCD with a lot of attention to 'contamination', having someone try to explain contradictions in why I'm doing something that is technically unclean when I wouldn't do something that is technically clean due to OCD. There are a few doorknobs that I will not touch no matter how much you clean them in front of me and I know it makes no sense, if it made sense I wouldn't have OCD i'd just be cleanly."
Stop trying to be an armchair therapist. Be empathetic to people first.
