And you thought your life sucked
Sometimes life gives you lemons, and more often than not, you just want to pelt someone in the face with them. It seems like whenever something sucky happens to us, it just keeps piling on until you just want to scream.
If you are looking for a little schadenfreude, you’ve come to the right place. These Redditors have been crapped on and then crapped on again immediately after. They aren’t hesitant to share their tales of misfortune though.
If you are the sympathetic/empathetic type, I’d grab some tissues before reading these real life stories of woe.
My wife of 10 years left me in May because she “never actually loved me”. In August I found out that before she actually filed for divorce in July she had started dating a new guy who she fell in love with after just meeting him. While struggling to get through this I was told by our 5 year old that the new boyfriend had bought her underwear that my ex had her model for a Snapchat and send to the boyfriend.
Edit: The boyfriend bought the underwear for my daughter and my ex recorded my daughter in the underwear and sent to her boyfriend. (Mdgate88)
My mum lit a bonfire and left it unattended which set fire to the grass which set fire to the garden shed which set the hedge on fire which blew up some gas canisters which set fire to a rat nest which spewed burning rats all over the yard which the fire fighters chopped in half with axes which my dad had to clean up.
This is absolutely 100% true and although it left my brother with a nasty rat phobia we survived intact. The smell of burning rat was the worst part. I’m such this story has also gone down in th annals of West Midlands Fire Service history. (Brummiediv)
Two of my friends had a falling out. I was dying to know what was going on between them, because they lived together and I felt like I was watching mommy and daddy get divorced. One friend was never around and the other told me he honestly didn’t know what going on.
After a couple months, I finally got some one-on-one time with the other friend, who explained everything to me in detail. Basically he asked if he could date the other friend’s cousin, who emphatically said NO. But, since the other friend had dated his cousin without asking, he violated bro-code and started seeing her anyway.
In dating this girl, he came to find out that she and the other friend were more than just cousins… They had carried on a physical relationship for years. Basically they f***ed like bunnies whenever the family wasn’t looking.
But hold on! It gets worse… He was told this went on for 10 years. The girl was 22. Her cousin was 24. They had been having sex since middle school.
But hold the f*** on! It gets worse… The girl’s father, and her cousin’s father, are identical twins. Let that sink in for a second. Genetically, they are half-siblings.
At that point in the story, I downed my beer and apologized for even asking about what was going on. I wish I never knew. As a follow up, they no longer live together or speak to each other. I’m still really close with the incest-free friend. I see the other friend in passing and we’re still friends, but its hard to look him in the eye.
Oh, and the non-incestuous couple split up shortly after, because he couldn’t handle it. Not sure if she’s still f***ing her “cousin” or not. (rawbface)
