When you're right, you're right. It may take some time to prove but when the truth is out it's out and victory will be had. Often times many of us tend to know a thing or two. Sage wisdom is a blessing for many, no matter who doubts you. So when you give advice or just make a statement of fact that has yet to be proven but later turns out to be gospel truth..... well then you have every right to dance the "I told you so" dance.Redditor u/Sebas_11 wanted to discuss the times we've all been vindicated by when others thought we were crazy by asking.... What has been your "I f***ing told you" moment?
She never listened.
When my mom told me that my brother had been hospitalized for poor mental health. I had been trying for YEARS to get him health insurance and mental health care because we experienced childhood trauma. She never listened. Always said everything was fine; he was fine.
Now he is 19 years old and struggles to keep a job. Struggles with addiction. Struggles with his mental health. I have been telling her for years to help him before he one day dies. Hopefully his previous hospitalization will be a new leaf for change. magnolias4lyfe
My little dog....
My little dog will try to stick her tongue in your mouth. I don't know why she does it, but it is some kind of obsession with her. She's stealthy. She's patient. She's not messing around. She will look positively adorable and innocent while she waits for the the perfect opportunity to tongue-punch your uvula. I try to warn people, but they never take me seriously.
I took her to the vet for her new puppy check up, and warned the vet tech this dog was gonna try to go to first base with him.
Me: Be careful. She will try to stick her tongue in your mouth.
Vet Tech: No, she won't. Don't worry. I know what I'm doing.
Me: I'm serious. She will wait until you let your guard down, and then her whole tongue is in your mouth.
Vet Tech: Look, this is my job and I've been doing this a long ppptttthhhtt SHE GOT ME!
Me: I damn told you.
Stunned. Not so Much!
Went over to a friend's house in college and her dad was sleeping on the couch. She said "oh yeah, he's been sleeping there for like a year, he has a bad back." I was like my mom has a bad back and she saved up and bought a new mattress rather than sleep apart from my dad, your dad's been kicked out of the bedroom. She didn't believe me.
Two months later it comes out her dad was cheating on her mom. The only person surprised about it was my friend. ookaookaooka
Most recently telling my wife we needed to go back from holiday as there was the start of a Covid outbreak here. Came into close contact, got put into self isolation, flights back got cancelled and the country where we live implemented a no non-nationals entry policy. I'm not a national. So, currently stuck on an extended holiday. Joy. Mediocre_Omens
A Crazy Feeling.Giphy
My ex (we remained good friends, nothing more) started dating someone. After he introduced us, he asked me what I thought of her and I said I had a bad feeling and to be careful. The more I got to know her, the more I told him she's bad news. He laughed it off trying to say Im just saying that cause I still have feelings for him (I didn't).
Few years later, he's having to get legal representation, she destroyed his business, his family, stalked and harassed him and even had him under investigation by the FBI. Took him a couple years to clean up the whole mess.
I totally said I told you so. ponchoacademy
Listen up Doc!
I was 8 months pregnant and I started having contractions. I went to the OB and told them something was wrong, and they needed to get the baby out. They tested me for hours and was going to discharge me. I refused to leave and told them something was wrong. The doctor agreed to one last test and found the babies heart beat was getting weaker and they wheeled me into the OR ten minutes later.
My daughter was born with no heart beat and had CPR done for two and a half minutes before she was resuscitated. I looked at that doctor and said I told you something was wrong. The pediatrician said if I had waited even another half hour we would have lost her.
She's eight now and perfectly healthy. dibbersdob
My mom is obsessed with soda, so one day she came home with some old unopened coke bottles from the olympics some 20 odd years ago she got from a yard sale. I was like cool, decorations. No, she intended to drink that mess. I told her multiple times how horrible of an idea that was and to absolutely not do that but she was convinced that coke cant go bad. Well I came home and there was one missing. Asked where it went. She just kinda looked at me and muttered that i was right about not drinking it. I told you so was said many times that day. jeant288
When I was in 3rd grade I begged my mom to switch my teacher. He was such a mean and negative person. She thought I was overreacting because I hadn't had a male teacher until him. He got fired the next year for grabbing a girl and slamming her on a desk (not sexually out of anger).
Told my mom and she actually apologized for not believing me. A_Penguin_Shopping
My mom said she could walk down stairs after spraining her ankle I said hell no.
She broke her leg. drunk-train-tracks
I never said it out loud (and I won't) but...
Mother let me know grandmother was having chest pains and said she was going to her house to "sit with her for a bit." I said by "sit with" you mean call an ambulance, right?
Next day she can't get hold of grandmother and is going to go check on her.
No prizes for guessing what she found. mydeardrsattler

Can You Hear ME?
Had a friend who always rode (BMX) with his headphones in, with the volume so loud he couldn't hear anything. On a few occasions he couldn't hear us shouting things like "car" or "don't go" crap like that, and almost hurt us or himself. He crashed into me after I fell, because he couldn't hear people shouting stop, and I flipped out and told him that one of these days he was going to really hurt someone or himself.
A week later he rode directly out of a friend's driveway and got blindsided by a car. He was fine, save some cuts and bruises, but his bike was destroyed and he broke her windshield. Her lawyer basically proved it was his fault and he had to pay for the whole thing.
I damn told you you idiot. iph0ne
When I was young and still living with my parents, there were a lot of squirrels in our neighborhood. One morning, I was pulling weeds in the front yard when I heard the sounds of squirrels moving around - coming from the ceiling of the porch, just under our attic.
I told my dad immediately, but he was absolutely sure that I was just hearing squirrels on the top of the roof and there was nothing to worry about. This happened a few more times over the summer but each time my parents said they couldn't possibly in the attic.
We listened to them trying to climb back up and squabbling with each other for hours until a pest control guy came and got them out, confirming that they had entered through a hole on the roof and set up a nest in the attic, which fell into the cavity between the walls. I've never felt so vindicated in my life. All squirrels were safely removed and relocated outside. SquameAndFortune

I used to work at Starbucks. a customer came in and ordered a drink (i forget which) without ice. i warned them that the drink would only be as cold as the ingredients were from sitting in the fridge, and that the drink would be room temp within a few minutes. they said that was fine. i make the drink, hand it off, and what does the customer come back to the counter five minutes later and say?
"my drink isn't cold."
I DAMN told you so, Sandra. mysteriesoflove
My wife's mother always told her she was being overly dramatic and making it up that her periods hurt. Everybody's period hurts, stop whining.
After we got married I encouraged her to see an actual doctor. Was RAPIDLY diagnosed with Endometriosis.
Life is so much better for her now that, thanks to actual medication for a professionally diagnosed condition, she just has unpleasant periods instead of "curl up in the bed with 3 heating pads whimpering for a week" ones. Edymnion
"you'll be fine, sit back down."
In third grade (~8 yo), we were doing quiet small group work when I suddenly felt sick to my stomach, which was very unusual for me. So, I got up, walked over to my teacher's desk and told her I thought I was going to throw up. She said "you'll be fine, sit back down."
Walked back to my little row of desks, turned to the right, and projectile vomited all over the girl next to me. I think I literally finished and said "I TOLD YOU SO." Also, sorry for yacking on you, Elaina from third grade. mearamoo
I told my brother he should probably date his girlfriend longer than a year before proposing. Two months after the wedding she said she wan't ready to be married and divorced him.
Saaaaame. First time he married an alcoholic, even though we all asked him several times if he was sure. (We didn't know she was an alcoholic, just that something wasn't right. He totally knew.)
Second time he dated her for 9 months before getting married. Are you sure? You haven't known her long...? Three months later and she wanted out. And kinda turned out to be a bit crazy. daughtcahm
"ThE PEt StORe SAiD..."
My aunt gave me pet frogs when i was 13, i didn't ask for them and had no real clue about their care aside from the paper from the pet store which i know can be sketchy, so i did my own research, starting with how to sex them.
I found out pretty quickly that one of them was female and my parents REFUSED to believe me no matter what i did because "ThE PEt StORe SAiD..."
Summertime rolled around (mating season) and i woke up to them piggybacking around the tank and laying eggs all through the water. The biggest "I told you so" of my childhood. I was completely enraged that they'd dismissed me completely despite having done none of their own research. They laid eggs every summer until they died and I considered my dad having to clean it karma. TommyRiot
"You really shouldn't eat egg salad from the gas station."
"But I like egg salad. You can't mess up egg salad."
"Okay, but somewhere between 6 and 12 hours later you're going to regret it."
He regretted it. NeedsMoreTuba
