People Reveal The Petty Thing They'd Do To Annoy People If They Got Rich

[rebelmouse-image 18347104 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

You know, one of the things we all fantasize about is returning to our high school reunions so incredibly rich that we make all the people who called us losers look bad. And better yet, we want to be rich enough to do whatever we want. Especially to those people that riled us up.

Redditor Zularis asked the good people of the internet:

If you were rich, what extremely petty thing would you do just to piss off people?

Here were some of the most deliciously petty answers.

President For Your Thoughts?

[rebelmouse-image 18355307 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Buy up every $1 coin of the most obscure President I can find, then bribe people obnoxiously. "Would a couple of Millard Fillmores change your mind?"

It Works For Me!

[rebelmouse-image 18355308 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Use the "Why dont you just buy a new one?" in every situation possible


[rebelmouse-image 18355309 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Start an Instagram account that shows me living a joyous life that only the top 0.1% of the world could live. Write captions that declare money doesn't matter. Use hashtags like #liveauthentic and #eatpraylove.

Use None Of It

[rebelmouse-image 18355310 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Invite friends out to dinner and when they politely reach for the tab, let them pay.

Works Every Time!

[rebelmouse-image 18355311 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I would tell people that I got rich by receiving money from a Nigerian prince by answering to his e-mail!

Two Trailer Park Girls Go Round The Outside

[rebelmouse-image 18355312 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd buy all the property surrounding my old neighbor and convert them into a trailer park.

I'll Buy A New One

[rebelmouse-image 18355313 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

In the middle of bumper to bumper traffic, just get out of my car and walk away.

Bumper To Wealth

[rebelmouse-image 18355314 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Buy the most expensive sports car and drive 10 mph below the speed limit everywhere I go.

It's Smart To Wear Layers

[rebelmouse-image 18355315 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Upon meeting new people, I would take my glove off to show respect before I shook their hand, only to reveal yet another glove to shake their peasant hand with.

Here She Is, Boys

[rebelmouse-image 18355316 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I would hire four ripped dudes to carry me around in a palanquin. I'm almost positive I wouldn't be breaking any laws. People on the subway may not be happy about it though.


[rebelmouse-image 18355317 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd make lengthy YouTube ads flaunting all my fancy s* while telling you that I'm going to tell you how I did it but never actually doing that. Looking at you Tai Lopez

Life Is Hard

[rebelmouse-image 18355318 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Take out a bundle of hundreds everytime I pay and complain about not having enough.

You'll Know My Face

[rebelmouse-image 18355319 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Put up billboards all across town of me just smiling.

Reverse Psychology

[rebelmouse-image 18355320 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd be incredibly nice and generous to the point where you feel you could never actually pay me back for all the things I've offered you that you can't help but get resentful.

Make Everyone Suffer

[rebelmouse-image 18355321 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I would hire hundreds of actors to stand in line and order just a cup of coffee at Starbucks during the morning rush.

Sucks To Be You

[rebelmouse-image 18355322 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

When my uncle became a stay at home dad, people thought he was leeching off of my aunt and living like a 'rich white boy' (their words). So, he started saying shit just to screw with them. If they asked him 'oh what did you do today' he'd say 'well, I got up by noon. Isn't that great?'

It made everyone so mad, but there was nothing they could do. So if it were me, I'd make little comments just to piss people off.

What They're Doing To Me, Now

[rebelmouse-image 18355323 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Tell them money doesn't matter.

The Mess Is In Your Minds

[rebelmouse-image 18355324 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I have ALWAYS wanted to do this - have a big, beautiful house, keep it absolutely pristine and clean. Then invite people over and say, "Sorry about the mess, it's a disaster here."

Pretty Much Our Lives Now

[rebelmouse-image 18355325 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I often fantasize about winning the lottery, and then getting jobs at sh-tty places. I would wait for the boss to act like an -ss hole, as bosses do. Then I would tear them a new one, tell them what everyone is afraid to say to them, and then go home.

Evil. Just Evil.

[rebelmouse-image 18355326 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I would employ a group of 50 or so people to find my brothers and walk slowly in from of them for the rest of their lives.

Spite Is Powerful

[rebelmouse-image 18355327 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

If I saw someone looking at something on the shelf in a shop then I'd very politely squeeze in and take all of the stock of said item for myself before they could. Maybe multiple times in a row to the same person if I was feeling especially petty.

Also very aggressively play supermarket sweep.

New Items Afoot

[rebelmouse-image 18355328 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Always told myself I wanted to be rich enough to wear a new pair of socks everyday.

Used To Fancy Things

[rebelmouse-image 18355330 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd buy all the plates at fancy political fundraising events, and bus in droves of homeless people to eat. I'd be sure to displace all the other rich people who usually like to suck up and buy off politicians. WTF is the politician gonna have to say about it? Think they've got the balls to complain about altruism like that?

It's A Bird! It's A Plane! It's...Insulting Me...?

[rebelmouse-image 18355331 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Buy a helicopter for work commute purposes and paint the bottom to say " so long peasants!!!"

Wealth Changes Everything

[rebelmouse-image 18355332 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

If i was a millionaire I'd keep a stack of benjamins in my wallet at all times for the sole purpose of paying people to stop talking. Whenever someone says something that annoys me, I'll whip out a crisp new bill, hand it to them, and casually retort "if i pay you $100, will you shut the f-ck up?"

It's a teacher's job to leave a lasting impression and set a good example for their students.

With this in mind, particularly in this age of viral videos and social media, teachers have to be very careful of what they say during class hours.

Even so, there are very few teachers who haven't said something they've regretted when teaching a class.

Sometimes to control unruly students, other times when they've simply had enough.

Then too, sometimes teachers leave their students baffled and perplexed by what they say in their classroom, well aware of what they were saying.

Always making for a memorable story.

As a kid, I never raised alarm bells even when I started to feel sick. My mom got stressed easily and was busy taking care of my younger brother, so I never wanted to be a burden by making her take me to the doctor only to find out nothing was wrong.

However, in fifth grade, my ears started to hurt and I knew something was wrong. I told my mom, she took me to the doctor, and I found out I had an ear infection.

Now, an ear infection isn't serious at all, and it was easily treatable. Still, I learned something from that experience: no one knows your body better than you. You know if and when you're sick and how serious it is, even if you don't now exactly what is wrong.

Redditors can corroborate this. Many of them have experienced symptoms that told them they were sick in some way -- usually with a very serious illness -- and are ready to share those experiences.

When in the beginning stages of dating, it's important to know as much as humanly possible.

The element of surprise is no longer a fun aspect of romance.

Ask the small questions. Ask the hard questions.

Interrogate. Grill. Investigate.

Of course, you should do it with a subtle hand instead of an interrogation lamp.

The truth is all we have.

Ask everything.

As much as we always hop for our dating efforts to be worth it and for every relationship to work out, we all know that some relationships are not destined to work out.

But sometimes relationships end for totally valid reasons, and sometimes the reasons are painful, if not devastating.
