If you have Reddit among your must-read daily publications, then you are familiar with the AITA thread. There, people who believe they are doing the right thing but are not receiving positive feedback ask the most objective people in the world – the Internet – for a perspective. And boy, does the internet deliver timely judgments and decide by referendum whether or not the original poster is the asshole in the situation. The stories are going crazy; Here are five of the most popular threads from the subreddit.
5 of the craziest stories on the internet
His girlfriend scrapped an Impala in 1
People act stupid in relationships, but this friend sounds like an extraordinary person. The operating room had a 2.5-car garage, in which he restored an Impala in 1974. His girlfriend moved in during a “crisis” and wanted to park her car in the garage. OP goes for a few days and the friend hires a junk company to clear out the garage and scrap the entire project.
The OP breaks up with the girl, files a police report and downloads security materials from his garage. The detectives find the junkyard and the car. So, a true love story, man and impala are reunited, not a word about what happened to the girlfriend.
Mail from a dead woman
Death is a strange phenomenon on the internet and someone often steps in on Reddit to post another user’s last words. Here a young woman died of cystic fibrosis. She posted on AITA because her Southern Baptist parents were obsessed with her funeral – they take her coffin to go shopping, for example. She wants to know if she’s the asshole planning her own funeral.
It’s a happy ending in a dark story. The OP speaks to her parents, and her husband posts her final words, letting Reddit know that she was happy with the final decisions. It’s a reminder of how ephemeral life can be, and to be honest, with loved ones.
Man shares his wealth with his ex
The OP’s marriage ended because he was having an affair with someone who became his girlfriend after the divorce. Six years later, he’s making millions. Everyone in this story, except the girlfriend, seems to be such cute people. His ex-wife made the divorce as painless as possible, committed to joint custody, and they are both active co-parents to their children.
He decides to give her some money that he won. She asked for nothing, but suggested that he take her children on vacation around the world. He tells his girlfriend his plans, and she freaks out and threatens to leave him, which the OP says gives him relief. Internet judgment? NTA.
Milk burdens thieving roommate
Living with roommates is stressful even in the best of circumstances. The OP suspected that his lactose intolerant roommate was stealing his groceries, including the almond milk he bought weekly. He confronted him a few times, and the roommate always reacted with anger at being accused, as guilty people are used to. In a perfect revenge scheme, the OP replaced the remaining almond milk with milk.
Fast forward to his roommate, who is angry because he’s stuck in the bathroom all day admitting he stole the milk. While food allergies are not a problem, lactose intolerance is not life threatening, just very impractical.
A man jumps out of a window to avoid his ex
The OP found out she had cheated on him a month before he married his four-year-old girlfriend. So he breaks off the wedding, breaks off the relationship and tries to get on with his life. But he doesn’t tell anyone why the relationship ended because he feels so emasculated.
OP’s friends and family are working hard to get him back together with his ex. Her efforts culminate in his mother secretly inviting her to her family dinner on Christmas Eve. Instead of talking to his ex, the operating room breaks out of the bathroom window and leaves. His family cut ties with him, but the internet agrees. He is NTA in the situation.
