Petty People Who Will Make You Say ‘Oh, The Shade Of It All’

Have you ever done something that, after you did it, made you wonder about who you were as a person? Being petty is a double-edged sword. It feels so good in the moment, but in the end, you have to live with being that person.

Is it worth it? I guess it depends on what the person did to deserve it.

That’s One Way To Say No

Ah, the breakup apology letter. Something that so many of us hope one day to get, but are actually enraged when we receive. This guy actually did what we all do—read it over and judged it harshly—but then this guy actually sent it back.

Do You Think Her Roommate Is Angry?

You can only ask someone to clear out the drain so many times before it becomes a problem. I’ll be real, though. I’m not sure that I could touch a bunch of someone else’s hair in the drain.

Just What Every Apartment Needs

Do you even live in an apartment building made for students if there isn’t a petty showdown happening somewhere? This is an excellent use of sticky notes, by the way.

That’s How You Get Revenge

This is the kind of long con revenge scheme that sets the petty apart from the savage. She’s about to teach someone a lesson about using your ex’s Netflix account.

Is He Wrong?

The truth of the matter is that none of these people can be that mad, because he isn’t wrong. If you would get up for class, you wouldn’t have to beg for notes.

Sounds Like A Healthy Workplace

It is true, though, that if she hadn’t been checking her phone at work, she wouldn’t have known she was broken up with and would have lived in bliss for another couple of hours.

That’s Just Cold-Blooded

Tweet: In high school I called my ex while drunk and the next day she changed her MySpace profile song to Call Me When You're Sober by Evanesence

She was not joking around when she pulled that stunt. The way we presented our MySpace pages used to be the ultimate place to send shade and be petty about everything.

It Was Nice Knowing Ya

The fact that she went out of her way to print out the messages that prove he was cheating is honestly so inspiring. He didn’t even stand a chance. It was over before it began.

Yes, Mom!

Getting a text from your mom vibe-checking your aunt is exactly the reason why being a grown-up who stayed close with their parents was a great idea. Know what I mean?

She Got What She Asked For

Ladies, we can only tell our boyfriends that we don’t know what we want for dinner so many times before they snap and just tear up a bunch of paper and serve us a big bowl of “IDK.”

This Is A Bold Move

While I appreciate the spirit behind pretending that your ex is dead, actually telling people she died when it’s something they can easily confirm for themselves seems like a bold move.

Seems Like This Could Have Been An Email

I will never understand people who think that it’s OK to go into the work fridge and just take whatever they want like they’re at home. That mango wasn’t yours to take!!

If The Picture Is Good

Friends may not be forever, but a good picture of you is. If that means you have to brush up on your Photoshop skills, then so be it. That’s a small price to pay.

What Was So Funny?

She couldn’t even send a “lol” to that other chat and move on. No, she had to come make it someone else’s business, which is probably the pettiest thing you can do.

He Took The Time

someone wrote down exactly how much food was in their leftover container

If the man took that much time to count out how many fries he has in his takeout, then don’t touch it, because you can’t be certain that the fallout of eating it wouldn’t be the end of it all.

This Is Just Too Much

Why couldn’t he just block and delete like a normal person after a date doesn’t go well? Let her have the grilled cheese since you’re about ready to take her dignity.

Stay To The Point

At the end of the day, I suppose it doesn’t really matter why you commit a sin in the eyes of the Church. It just matters that you did it, and now you have to make it better.

It’s Beautiful

This guy was absolutely sick of the mess that his roommate was leaving. Instead of confronting him about it, he made it into an art exhibit, likely in hopes of embarrassing him.

What Did The Bunny Do?

If you have beef with someone, then you gotta take it up with them. Leave the innocent little stuffed animals out of it. That little bunny had nothing to do with it, and now he’s having the spa day from hell.

Imagine Being Mad At Grocery Store Pasta?

I appreciate the sentiment and that this person wants people to know they can make it for cheaper, but this probably took so much of their own time…was it even worth it?
