reddit instant karma stories - scales of justice

1. FelixthefakeYT doled out some spicy payback:

Not instant, but karma none-the-less, my dad kept getting his lunch stolen at work one day, so he got my mother to get the spiciest hot sauce on the market to put on the sandwich, lo and behold, the guy who stole it was looking red as a hot iron.

they fired the guy and my dad got to eat his lunch again.

2. MyNameIsNotRyn had a karma llama:

I used to be a zookeeper.

This bitch was making fun of our llama for looking ugly. The llama was a rescue who had corrective jaw surgery.

The bitch pointed and laughed at our llama.

The llama spat in her mouth.

I gave the llama a treat and told her that she was a good girl.

3. N3MO_'s wasabi was too hot for the dog:

My dog tried to eat my sushi while I was away from the table for a second. I came back to missing wasabi and a disgusted-looking dog

4. OMGLookAWhale got the last laugh on their husband: 

I banged by knee on the corner for a hotel bed and my husband was laughing his ass off while he was brushing his teeth in the bathroom. As soon as he walks out of the bathroom, his hit his knee the exact same way and I got to laugh my ass off.

5. Carryoncrow's boyfriend road his truck to paybackville:

My boyfriend has a big GMC, and one winter it was really snowy and a bunch of cars had gone into the ditch, as ya do.

Because he's a nice guy, he was spending his day off pulling people out for free. At one point, while he was helping someone, some asshole FLEW by him, wailing on the horn and flipping him off out the window.

He got done pulling the car out and headed up the road in the direction that jackass had gone. A mile up the road, they found him standing outside of his car, which was now plowed into a giant fucking tree.

Boyfriend honked his horn, waved, and kept driving. Dude just hung his head like a scolded dog.

Truly beautiful.

6. HowardJoelWolowitz saw karma piss all over a bully: 

The best one was a real f***ing goon at my school. He got up on the roof of a shed to piss on kids as they left the shed. But this dumb bully fell off the roof resulting in a broken wrist, injured wang and humiliation.

7. Fallenbutrisen's wife got some bloody good karma:

a girl laughed at my wife and I on a train . When the train stopped, she tripped onto the guy in front of her and got a nosebleed.

8. Grey_Gryphon's bully was taught a lesson in justice: 

Asshole kid in middle school kept trying to steal my cellphone (it was a cheap flip phone, but he'd do it just to piss me off). Our school had a rule that you couldn't have your phone out in class. Teacher left the classroom for a second to have a brief word with an administrator, jerkass kid grabbed my phone. Teacher came back in a moment later and caught him red- handed with (my) phone out. She wouldn't believe it wasn't his phone. He got detention.

9.  DrDudeManJones's Dad learned that patience was a virtue: 

My dad told me this story.

He was driving back from the shore when traffic got really bad. About a mile ahead, there was an accident that had brought traffic to a crawl. Shit happens, my dad decides to be patient about it. Others weren't so patient. People began driving on the shoulder in order to get ahead of the traffic. This pisses my dad off. We all know how this goes. We do the right thing and are punished for it, where as these assholes are skipping in front traffic and will probably get away with it. He thought about following this stream of cars onto the shoulder, but he decided he'd do the right thing and wait.

As he got closer he saw two cops in a parking lot. One cop was directing all of the shoulder drivers into the parking lot, while the other wrote all of those drivers tickets. He describes it as one of the most satisfying things he's ever seen.

10. mrbumnus proved that smokers aren't always jokers: 

I was walking down a busy street and a guy shoulder barged me as he walked past, unbeknown to him I had a lit cigarette in my hand and it burnt him pretty bad.I was about 10 foot away when I heard him scream out but there was too many people and I never saw him again.

11. dead-ced-dead taught his bully knot to mess with


In the UK, kids wear blazers and ties to school and a common bullying tactic that jerks used was to run up to kids, pull their ties so they get really tightly knotted.

On the bus home, the bus was really full, and I was standing in front of one such bully. He grabbed my tie JUST as the bus had to break sharply. He lost his footing and the only thing keeping him upright was the fact that he was holding my tie.

He had grabbed the wrong bit, it wasn't knotted, I simply untied it, he fell on his bum. That was the last time I was knotted.

12. -notapony- got some amusement on the way to the park: 

Ooh, this is one of my favorites as well. Many years ago, I went up to an amusement park with a friend on a beautiful summer day. As we got closer to the exit ramp leading to the park, traffic starts backing up because of the amount of other people with the same idea. Same thing happened as in your story, where people started peeling off into the shoulder to get around the line of cars waiting. The fact that some people were already doing it seemed to entice others, until the line on the shoulder came up to just a few car lengths ahead of us.

We keep slowly moving forward, but the cars on the shoulder aren't. I'd assumed that it was just a situation of them not being able to merge back into traffic, but as we got to our exit we found there was a single cop car parked at the end, and there were a few cops walking down the line of cars writing tickets. I don't remember what we did at the park that day, but I often think about those cars and smile.
