We all have one. That one person we wish we could all erase, not just from our lives but from the Earth.

Even the best and kindest of us has harbor ill feelings towards one individual who made life, difficult, at times.

The truth, is that there are some truly malicious, nasty, vindictive, awful people running around this planet, and they take pleasure in the plight of other's.

And it's best to know where they are, even when they are finally gone from our lives.

Redditor u/cocobotisbest was wondering who wanted to discuss the people we'd rather forget by asking:

What happened to the "a**hole" person in your life?

My ex-stepfather is a demon from hell. I'm sure of it. He was an abusive drunk. And he luxuriated in causing havoc and emotional destruction. He's dead. I'll just leave that there. Who else feels like rejoicing/I mean sharing?

The Office Monday GIF by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment Giphy

"He got to keep his job while many people he terrorized were laid off. (Not counting the ones who quit because of him.) He lives in a lovely house, his wife is a VP who just had a baby. He's oblivious."

Who cares?

"I have no idea, and I hope it stays that way."

- Ggeng

"There was one kid in school who was an a**hole from a very early age. I was in the same class in primary school for 1 year in grade 4. I have no idea what he is up to and honest to God I hope I never discover what he is now."

The Ex

"Lots of absolute jerks often ride off into the sunset and never get their comeuppance. I had an ex-wife who left me for a rich executive guy at her job. They live in a huge house, he keeps getting promoted and everything worked out for her and she even has two kids with him (we had no kids). She is living the dream!"

"It's a lot of work to forget those who wronged you. I try to work on it, but it's tough to live without wanting revenge."

- VizualData


"Ohh, this is one of my favorite stories. My wife had jacked teeth in middle school, before her mom could get her braces. The a**hole that teased her mercilessly and dubbed her "snaggle tooth". He died in jail of a tooth infection from smoking meth. He was an a**hole in a lot of other ways, hence the being in jail. This is just the best way to tell it."

"Completely removed from my life, blocked on every single mode of communications. Thanks for a crappy childhood, dad."

Family is so complicated. And it's the one relationship we're told should be the easiest. Oh well. And God do I love seeing bullies pay. Let's hear some more good news.


Complaining John Oliver GIF Giphy

"He is still thriving in life. With a good job and family. Not everything is a fairy tale where karma hits them hard."

- Indianfattie

Slow Down

"Died. He was seriously drunk and decided to go driving 90 miles an hour in a 30 zone and he didn't swerve in time and died fairly quickly." No one else died or was injured. It was at 1am in the morning. He was pronounced dead as soon the ambulance came. So he died within minutes. Kinda sad that a 21 year old would just die like that.

Teacher's Pet

"It was a girl in elementary, who made up stories of how I did something bad, like throwing snails into river or trashing teacher's pencil case etc. The teacher always believed it, because unlike me, the girl was able to look into people's eyes while talking to them. And I was considered to be a freakin' liar. I did not even know it was her for a long time, cos she pretended to be my friend."

"Years later, a tenement house nearby exploded, it completely destroyed the flat she was living in, and her father (plumber who went to check the pipelines in the cellar) died there. I quite liked the man. I do not believe in karma and if so, this would be an enormous overkill."

- Ziriath

I Hate Him

"Moved away, divorced his wife and got a girlfriend with the same name. He was an a**hole, he was my babysitter as a kid and abused me for some reason, he burned me really bad once and my parents got to see that I didn't lie about him, don't always regard your child's story as fake, sit down and talk to them."

- CanadianTheClown

A Better Person

Mr Bean Thumbs Up GIF Giphy

"He got an aggressive brain tumor, making him rethink his entire view on life and start being a decent human being. Also might have affected his personality in some way, all around a better person."

- TheWikid

Not to wish anyone ill, because that is toxic, but it is nice to see that karma and the Universe often does have a plan. What I know is life does go on and we're all the stronger for moving forward. Also, keeping tabs isn't always a bad idea.

A good chunk of humanity have a hard time hearing certain truths. We don't want to admit what isn't working, because it's just human nature to be scared of being wrong. It's hard to admit weakness individually, much less as a whole.

An overwhelming majority of us have plenty of things we are annoyed by every single day, and also lack the power to doing anything about them.

From our childhood through our adult years, one thing we all dream of from time to time is all the things we could do if we had unlimited resources. Buy a castle and become your own anti-hero, solve world hunger, adopt ALL the animals, live on an endless cruise around the world, heck, buy a whole political party *cough cough*.

I admit that I am not a picky eater by any stretch of the imagination. I eat just about anything. I also consider myself pretty adventurous; when I travel, eating good food and trying the local cuisine is at the top of my list!

But even I would be hard-pressed to eat durian or even balut.

Would I say absolutely not? I'll have to get back to you after a trip to Southeast Asia. The jury's out for now.

People had very strong opinions on the food they want nothing to do with after Redditor KentuckyFriedEel asked the online community,

"What dish/food can f*** right off?"
